A Mirfield pre-school group is celebrating a good Ofsted report with a move to purpose-built new premises.
Battyeford Pre-School will leave Christ the King Church at Battyeford after 40 years.
The group opens at the recently-revamped Trinity Methodist Church in Mirfield town centre on April 28.
The committee-run group, which will become known as Trinity Tykes, takes youngsters aged between two and five. It has eight children on the roll but has capacity for 24.
Manager Sue Ward said she hoped the move to a more central location would boost numbers.
The group, a registered charity which also offers free funded places for eligible two-year-olds, has been boosted by the latest Ofsted report which rated the group as “good.”
Ofsted inspector Michaela Kelly lifted the group’s rating from “satisfactory” and praised the environment offered by Sue and deputy manager Karen Dzedzej.
The report says: “The staff provide the children with a wide range of activities and resources that support their interests. Therefore, children are engaged in purposeful play throughout their time at the setting.
“The setting has effective planning and assessment processes to ensure children make good progress with their learning.”
The group has also won the support of the local community with Hills Office Furniture in Cleckheaton donating furniture and Scissett-based RPL (1983) Ltd making signs for free.
The Eastthorpe Room at Trinity Church was purpose-built for a nursery and there is also an all-weather outdoor play area.
