Imagine at Rastrick’s Close Lea House

Welcome to Close Lea House. This is the Pre-Preparatory department of Rastrick Independent School based near Brighouse, West Yorkshire.

We have a reputation as an outstandingly successful nursery school – a very important stage in your child’s development. Parents chose Close Lea House for nursery education and also as an entry point to and a place at the prestigious Rastrick Preparatory School.


Located in our exclusive purpose built secure early years facility, children flourish, learn and play in their own garden, lawn and adventure playground. Musical instruments, a wet room for sand and water, a role play room for domestic play and dressing up and themed imaginative play are a speciality here. Our fabulous recourses create an exciting environment combined with our teaching skills to ensure your child’s development at this vital stage of their education. 


This extension of nursery education welcomes 2 to 4 year olds to our unique learning environment. When your child is ready, they will begin their education with our experienced, child centred team of highly qualified teaching staff who work alongside our nursery nurses. We have an Early Years Professional Status (EYPS) member of staff who teaches our 3 and 4 year olds and a teacher who works with our 2 and 3 year olds.


We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS) which enables you to access the Nursery Education Grant for six terms when your child is 3 and 4 years old.

Choice and flexibility

Step inside Close Lea House and experience the best for the best at this key stage of your child’s development. Flexibility is one of our key features. Your child is able to attend full or part-time, the school day, extended day or simply for the 15 or 30 funded hours.
