Bright Horizons at Trafford Nursery and Preschool

Bright Horizons at Trafford Nursery and Preschool463 Stretford Road, Old Trafford, Greater Manchester, M16 9AB
A home from home environment to grow and flourish in Trafford

Situated just off the A5067, Bright Horizons Trafford nursery and preschool provide exceptional care and education to children aged 3 months to 4 years, creating a warm, welcoming, home-like setting where children feel secure, curious, and confident in their learning and growth. With an amazing team from all over the world, speaking a variety of languages, your child will love learning about other countries’ traditions, culture and languages, alongside English. We also 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.

Our nursery is easily accessible from local bus routes with excellent transport links and onsite parking with a convenient buggy park to ease your drop-offs and pickups.

Throughout our three age-focused rooms, we provide the best start to schooling life through our enriching and wellbeing-focused Bright Beginnings Curriculum, designed by our own Early Years specialists. This holistic yet personal approach supports each child's wellbeing, development, and progress, whether that involves transitioning between rooms or preparing for school.

Our garden is an amazing space, allowing the children to really use their creativity and independence. The children will enjoy freeflow access to their own outdoor decking space. Our Garden activities include our maths and literacy shed, bikes and balance equipment.

And while your child is busy exploring and having fun, we can keep you updated via our Family app. Available for all Bright Horizons parents, this will keep you connected with your child's day-to-day experiences and up to date as they develop during their time with us.

We look forward to welcoming you and your child for a personal tour. Book now.
