In our most recent Ofsted inspection we received the highest level awarded of 'Outstanding'. We worked really hard to achieve this because we believe in giving exceptional educational care. We will be visited by Ofsted within the next 12 months and hope to continue to demonstrate how we go the extra mile for the children in our care. Our Ofsted report can be read on this website, under the 'Report & Information' section. Should you have any questions about our service please give us a call on 0161 643 8108.

Parent and Carer Partnership
The input from our parents and carers is an important part of how we approach child development. We want to work with you to ensure that your child gets the very best chances in life. The ages from 2-5 are the most important developmental stages of a persons life - we want to make sure we get it right. We do this by working alongside you because a child is learning all the time. To support our community, we also support parents wanting to get back into work, therefore these are given priority and support.
