You and your child will love our Outstanding nursery in Trafford, specifically designed to support your child’s development from the age of 3 months to 5 years.
Set in a vibrant borough of Manchester, our nursery boasts a large garden with plenty of themed spaces for children to improve their motor skills and expand their curiosity. Particular favourites include the mud kitchen, the maths and literacy shed and the sandpit. Each age group also has freeflow access to their own outdoor decking space, encouraging independent exploration.
We give preschoolers extra support and enrichment in subjects such as mathematics, art, reading and writing through an enriching Ready for School programme. This gives every child the opportunity to gain knowledge and confidence to thrive in school and beyond. Our unique Healthy Hearts and Minds activities provide inspirational and engaging learning experiences using the innovative and well established Boogie Mites and myHappymind programmes.
Trafford nursery is a culturally diverse setting with staff who speak a variety of home languages alongside English. Children enjoy learning about the wider world and the traditions and cultures of their friends. We work closely with Trafford SENAS to foster a spirit of inclusion for all children, and hold a Trafford ‘Giving Voice’ award for our work in speech and language.
Trafford Day Nursery and Preschool is easily accessible from local bus routes. We have an onsite car park and buggy storage area to aid with drop-off and pick-up times.
Our commitment to extraordinary childcare has been recognised locally, with parents giving us a 5/5 star rating on Google reviews (as of March 2020).
We would love to meet you and your child, so book a visit today and we will show you all our nursery has to offer during your own personal tour.

I have been working for Bright Horizons for 8 years now. In those eight years, I have ticked off lots of things I have wanted to achieve during my career. The company has supported me all the way through my professional development. I began my journey as a Room Supervisor a preschool room and during that time I was completing a BA Honours Degree in Early Childhood Studies. My nursery manager was very experienced and she supported me in gaining the qualifications I desired. I was proud to gain a 2:1 in my degree! My manager then encouraged me to take on the Early Years Teacher Status. The company allowed me the opportunity to attend regular training and development days. After achieving the EYTS, I felt I was really able to guide and mentor others and I felt I needed a new challenge. Shortly after, I was promoted the Nursery Deputy Manager.
I am now a Nursery Manager and I am really enjoying the challenge. Every day is a new day in the nursery, meeting new families and building relationships with our children is amazing. I think the moment parents trust you with the most precious thing in the world to them, is the moment you realise just how important our jobs are.
I have gained so much experience working at Bright Horizons and I am looking forward to the future!
I started working for kidsunlimited in 2009, working at our Manchester airport site as a unit co-ordinator. Throughout my 10 years working with the Bright Horizons family I have been fortunate enough to be supported in completing by BA Hons in Early years and Childhood Studies.
My career progression has been exciting as I have covered manager’s post on two occasions this was before I had my second child, I was then given the opportunity to take a slight pause in my career whilst my family was still growing, but was provided the balance of working part time supporting our sale site. This enabled me to support the management team in focusing on the delivery of Early Years.
As my eldest son in now in school I have the opportunity to cover a deputy manager’s maternity leave and supporting Emma in managing an outstanding setting here at Trafford. I have immersed myself in my role here at Trafford and thoroughly enjoy being part of this nursery family.
