A place to grow

Manchester Day Nursery in central Manchester is a purpose-built environmentally friendly concept nursery situated within the heart of Macintosh Village. It is conveniently situated close to major bus, train and tram routes around Oxford Road. Our nursery has three well equipped base rooms and two large outside play areas, which is a rarity for a city centre nursery. Our team of experienced childcare professionals work closely with parents to support the learning and development of their child, including play and learning at home ideas to support them in reaching their full potential. Our parent room compliments these relationships by being a dedicated area for families and key workers to support partnership and communication between nursery and home.
Late pick up is available, bookable in advance for a small fee.

Meet the Team

Chloe Barwick

I am very passionate about working with children in the early years, having a wide variety of experience throughout my career in childcare. I have a BA Honours in Childhood, Youth and Early Years and have qualified as an Early Years Teacher. I am always striving to ensure children learn and develop to their full potential whilst in my care, providing them with opportunities to challenge and stimulate them, using my knowledge and understanding of child development to achieve this.

Rabia Ali

Working with children and helping them to achieve their individual goals and support their needs has always been has been a passion from a very young age. I have 8 years’ experience working within a nursery setting and 3 years as a Deputy Manager. I started working for Bright Horizons in June 2013 when kidsunlimited joined the Bright Horizons family and I joined Manchester in 2011 as a Room Leader. I am a level 3 qualified nursery nurse and I have attended a range of courses that have helped me to extend my learning and knowledge in a Child Care setting. These courses include Behaviour Management and Advanced Child Protection. I am also Paediatric First Aid trained and the designated leader in Advanced Child Protection. I enjoy the continued professional development I gain through working in this profession as I feel there is always something new to learn and bring to the children to help them thrive.
