Bright Horizons Astley Day Nursery and Preschool is placed conveniently on the junction of Higher Green Lane, Astley and the East Lancashire Road, otherwise known as the East Lancs.
This location allows easy access for parents working in Liverpool, St Helens, Wigan & Manchester. We are proud to showcase our newly refurbished nursery which completed in June 2018. Our £250k refurbishment included redecoration of all rooms, walls, a full garden refurbishment, and update to our bathrooms. We take care of children from new born babies in our superbly equipped baby rooms to school age, where their final year with us would be in our preschool.
Our primary focus is the children and everything we provide and do has been designed through the eyes of a child; each brightly coloured room is a place of wonderment, and carefully fitted for the age group, where natural curiosity is encouraged and young horizons are allowed to expand. Your child will be guided through their early educational development by our staff, who are selected not just for their qualifications but also their loving and caring nature.
Our aim is to nurture your child during their formative years, giving them the social skills and confidence they need to make the transition into school life. Most importantly, we want your children to be content and have fun. We know that leaving your child can be difficult but we hope to make that easier for you.
Every child deserves the best start in life and we aim to deliver just that. The smiles on their faces will say it all.

I have worked for the company for 19 years and I have over 26 years’ experience working with children. I qualified as a nursery nurse at the age of 18 where I gained my BTEC National Diploma in Nursery Nursing. As my passion for childcare grew, I took on supervisory roles where I really enjoyed sharing my knowledge with others. By the age of 24, I was given the opportunity to take on a managerial role, which I am truly thankful of. Over time, I have continued to develop my own personal development, gaining my Level 4 in Early Years, NVQ trainer and Assessor Qualification, Advanced Safe Guarding, First Aid and SENCO.
I have been married to my husband Chris for 17 years and I have two beautiful Children, Emily who is 16 and Freya who is 12.
I have always had a passion for working with children, and I made this my career at the age of 18 after studying at College. I started as a nursery nurse and gained me level 3 NVQ in childcare, I then worked my way up to a room leader, where I gained lots of knowledge on leadership and I then progressed to Assistant Manager 3 years ago, I have really enjoyed learning new skills, and enhancing my practice to gain the best out of my staff team.
I have continued to enhance my own knowledge and practice, and I have gained an NVQ Assessors award, Level 3 in Management, Level 3 in Speech and Language, Level 2 in working with children with learning disabilities, and also gained a certificate in Paediatric First Aid and Emergency First Aid at work.
