An inspiring setting to play and learn

Welcome to Prestbury Day Nursery and Preschool, where we provide the best care and education for children aged 3 months to 5 years. Our warm and enriching nursery is set in a beautiful rural environment that you and your child will love.

Excellent Resources for Every Age

Your child will feel happy and excited to come to nursery, as they enjoy our bright classrooms, exciting toys and play areas, and inspiring educational equipment.

From our baby room, right up to our preschool room, every age group is provided with the very best resources for their development, to help them reach their milestones and encourage their independence. This includes loose parts play, a construction zone, an art station and an interactive whiteboard.

A Bright Beginning for Every Child

Designed by our Early Years specialists, your little one will get the very best start through our enriching and wellbeing focused Bright Beginnings Curriculum.

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 development and progress - whether that's moving rooms or preparing them for school.

Children also enjoy Boogie Mites with its exciting opportunities to learn through music and song.

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

Specialist Rooms

Your child will benefit from our specialist rooms. The dining room is ideal for teaching little ones about mealtimes while they enjoy a meal with their friends. We also have a learning room and a children's kitchen where your mini chef will learn about healthy food choices and cook up a storm.

Adventures in the Garden

Little explorers will love spending their time in our beautiful large garden and outdoor areas, which have been designed especially for each of our age groups.

Our spacious garden is set in a green environment, providing the perfect place to play, grow and learn. From an outdoor soft play area for younger children to a mud kitchen, and a vegetable garden to a nature trail, there is so much for your little one to discover.

All-Inclusive Care and Convenience

  • Nutritionally balanced meals are prepared by our onsite chef. Our all-inclusive care extends to nappies, snacks, wipes, formula, and creams.
  • Onsite car park and buggy park.
  • Our nursery in Macclesfield is close to Macclesfield and Prestbury train stations.
  • Limited funded only places are available.

Jessica Gill Deputy Manager Trafford

Jessica Gill

My name is Jessica Gill. I am currently covering Gemma Milburn’s maternity leave. I have been working within the early years sector for 15 years, 12 of which have been within our organisation. As a mum of two, I understand the need for quality childcare that holistically meets the needs of our children. I strive to ensure that we support our children to navigate the world around them, through the support of highly skilled practitioners that tune into the child’s needs and interests. Neurological development is a passion of mine, I believe the way in which a child’s brain develops is fascinating. I recognise our responsibility as educators to ensure that we enable our children to attend a nursery that allows them to be their true self.

Candy Floss

Candy Floss

Hi, my name is Candy Floss, I joined Bright Horizons in March 2010 as the ‘Super Safety Hero’ to help nursery children stay safe and manage risks. My role as a Health and Safety Super Hero is unique to Bright Horizons and I’m in every nursery, 365 days a year.

Back in 2010, I saw a job advert for a Zebra Super Safety Hero – I was very excited, applied and was invited for an interview with several other zebras. We were interviewed by all the children who then voted on which of us would be their Super Safety Hero. It was hoof biting but I was thrilled when they told me I was the most voted for by the children who all loved me because of my cape and bag. My bag is very special, if something fits inside, it’s a choking hazard. You might be wondering how I got my name. The children in our nurseries chose five names and voted for their favourite. I love it as it’s unique, I mean have you ever heard of a zebra called Candy Floss? Exactly!

Why Bright Horizons

The Bright Horizons passion and enthusiasm for providing high-quality care isn’t just common knowledge within our own business – we’ve also gained some impressive accolades from external sources for excellence as both a childcare provider, and as an employer. We are the only childcare company to have been listed for the last 11 years as one of the country’s top 50 “Great Places to Work” by the Great Place to Work Institute.
