An outstanding, diverse nursery in Trafford

You and your child will love our Ofsted 'Outstanding' nursery and preschool in Trafford, specifically designed to support your child's development from the age of 3 months to 5 years.

A Bright Beginning for Every Child

Your little one will get the very best start with our Bright Beginnings Curriculum.

Designed by our Early Years specialists, the enriching curriculum focuses on children's wellbeing as the foundation to successful learning. Your child will benefit from having their own key person to support them throughout nursery and preschool to ensure they feel secure.

Our practitioners build on the foundations of the government's EYFS curriculum through a combination of exciting activities that nurture your child and help them to develop skills for school and beyond.

Learning About Diversity

We are lucky to be able to enjoy a culturally diverse environment with our staff speaking a variety of languages alongside English. Your child will learn about other parts of the world from the various languages, traditions and culture of our dedicated team of staff.

We work closely with Trafford SENAS to foster a spirit of inclusion for all children and are proud to hold a Trafford 'Giving Voice' award for our work in speech and language.

Getting Ready for school

Your child will be supported as a Growing reader, writer, mathematician, artist and more, through our Growing Enhancements and Ready for School programmes.

They'll especially enjoy the fun and popular Boogie Mites where they learn more about the world through music and song.

Outdoor Exploration

Your little explorer will enjoy freeflow access to their own outdoor decking space which will encourage independent exploration.

Garden activities include our maths and literacy shed, bikes and balance equipment, and our popular sandpit.

Ease and Convenience

Our nursery is conveniently set in the vibrant borough of Manchester.

  • Easily accessible from local bus routes with excellent transport links.
  • Onsite parking with a convenient buggy park to ease your drop-offs and pickups.
  • Your little one will love our nutritionally balanced meals prepared by our onsite chef.

Stay connected with our Bright Horizons Family app to see how your child is progressing.
