HSBC UK has provided funding to support the opening of a new nursery in Doncaster.

Holly House Day Nursery, Bircotes, opened following a major building development supported by a funding program from HSBC UK.

The 5,000 square foot nursery can accommodate a total of 80 children ages zero to five.

Twenty jobs should be created in the coming months.

Jonathon Woodhead, Managing Director of Holly House Day Nursery, said: “The crèche is the result of detailed research into the demands of young children and their learning needs. Our motivation came because as parents of a young baby, we had a hard time finding good babysitters.

“We first identified this site in 2016, so we are delighted that many years later, thanks to HSBC UK, we are delighted to have opened our third nursery, specially designed for our needs and focused on quality. .”

Ryan Slater, Relationship Manager at HSBC UK, Business Banking South & West Yorkshire, added: “It’s fantastic that HSBC UK has supported such a valuable new asset to the Doncaster community. The pandemic has only exacerbated the need for excellent childcare facilities, so it is all the more important that Holly House Day Nursery can create a modern daycare, designed and developed to meet the specific needs of young children.”

The team behind Holly House Day Nursery has a history in early childhood child care that spans over 20 years. The directors had previously set up two crèches in Doncaster: Small World Day Nursery in Hatfield and St Marys Day Nursery in Bessacarr. Both Ofsted Outstanding nurseries were sold in 2019 and were at full capacity.

Holly House Day Nursery’s surveyor was James McKelvie of Sanderson Weatherall.
