Hello and welcome to Franklin First Call Nursery. We are a purpose built
nursery set in the grounds of Franklin College, Grimsby. Although
predominately for students and local residents, the nursery is also open to
the general public.
The nursery has been funded as part of the Governments
Neighbourhood Nursery Initiative. Other funding providers include Learning and
Skills Council, Childcare Community Fund and Franklin College. We receive nursery education vouchers for 3 and 4 year olds for 38 weeks per year for 15 hours per week. We also accept 2 year funding for 10 hours per week for 38 weeks of the year.
Franklin First Call opened on January 27, 2003. The nursery is OFSTED
registered and caters for
12 under 2's and 32 children aged 2-8 years.
Opening hours are 7.30am - 6.00pm Monday to Friday.

The nursery environment is spacious, bright and welcoming, consisting of a
baby room with separate sleep area and 2 play rooms for children age 2-5
years, one of which is a conservatory with plenty of natural light.
Our staff are of varying ages with a wide range of childcare experience
and are constantly updating their qualifications. At Franklin we recognise children's safety as paramount and the nursery has an electronic entry
security system. At Franklin First Call we see your children as individuals
and as such work closely with parents to meet each child's individual needs.
All meals are freshly prepared on a daily basis and menus are displayed; all
children's dietary needs are catered for. In 2011 we received a grading of good in our OFSTED inspection which can be viewed at www.ofsted.gov.uk. In 2005 the nursery received Aiming High Quality Assurance Scheme and won North East Lincolnshire Child Care of the Year Award for Outstanding Practice in Setting Award Inclusive Practice. In 2009 we completed Level 1 in EQUIP (Effective Quality Improvement Pathway).
Franklin welcomes parents and children to come and see for yourselves our
happy and welcoming environment.
We look forward to welcoming you,
Emma and team
