An Inspiring and Outstanding Nursery in Didsbury

You and your child will love our Ofsted 'Outstanding' nursery and preschool in Didsbury, which provides the best care and education for children from the age of 3 months to 5 years.

Beautiful Refurbished Rooms

Your little one will love spending their days in our recently refurbished nursery, where every room is bright, spacious, and designed specifically for each age group's educational and developmental needs.

In our baby room, we'll follow your child's home routine as closely as possible, to ensure they feel comfortable with us. Our baby room has its own outdoor space, and we also take them out and about in the local area to help them relax in varied environments.

Our toddler room has been designed to encourage your child's independence. Activities are planned around your little one's personal interests and toddlers benefit from freeflow access to the garden.

Preschoolers love their room and, supported by our qualified preschool teacher, will build confidence to start school. Taking part in our Ready for School Programme will help them learn the essential skills for them to take their next steps.

A Bright Beginning for Every Child

Your little one will get the best start to their schooling life through our enriching and wellbeing-focused Bright Beginnings Curriculum, designed by our Early Years specialists.

Building on the foundations of the government's EYFS curriculum, it combines a wide range of activities to nurture and develop the skills your child needs to flourish and reach their full potential. This holistic yet personal approach supports each child's wellbeing, development, and progress and whether that's moving rooms or preparing them for school.

Children also enjoy Boogie Mites music sessions where they can learn about the world through music and song.

You can stay updated with your child's day through our Bright Horizons Family app.

Additional Rooms for an Enriched Experience

Mini Monets love spending time in our dedicated art studio, where they'll spend time exploring arts and crafts and creating their own masterpieces.

We also offer Spanish lessons and yoga sessions to enhance your child's learning experience.

Fun Outdoors

Our garden is an exciting place to make new discoveries. With all-weather astroturf, this fun and stimulating space features a wealth of resources and activities to keep young minds engaged. From a fully stocked mud kitchen to a busy construction zone, trikes and bikes, there's so much to explore.

All-Inclusive Care and Convenience

  • Nutritionally-balanced meals are prepared by our onsite chef. Our all-inclusive care extends to nappies, wipes, formula, and creams.
  • Onsite parking and buggy park.
  • Holiday club is available for children aged 4 to 8.
