In 2016, Bradford Council identified a shortage of high quality places for nursery education within BD4 and in particular, Bierley.
OUR BD4 is a company that was established in 2016 to provide community childcare and family liaison to improve life chances, educational standards and employability within the BD4 area of Bradford. The company was formed using expertise and community resources from two existing organisations – Bradford Academy and BD4 Community Trust. Both organisations wanted to work together to create a unique company that could serve local children and families through making use of our experienced personnel skills from both the community and educational sector.
To enable the provision of independent, yet supported, childcare at nurseries within BD4, the company was formed with the support of the local authority. In 2017, OUR BD4 opened its first nursery – The Life Nursery in Bierley.
