The Village Nursery believe in seeing children as individuals. Their ethos is to work closely with and build meaningful relationships with children and their families. Their teams work closely with the families ensuring they feel confident from the onset, starting with the very first session in their home visits to the personal visits with their Key Person.

The Key person’s role is to support the child and their family as they begin to make relationships within the setting. Information sharing is integral to ensure that staff always provide the best possible experiences for each of them.

The baby unit consist of a beautiful light open environment with immediate accesses a separate garden and baby sleep room. Above all the babies at nursery feel loved and cared for. During this important phase babies are exploring the world with all of their senses and their whole bodies and so the activities and experiences they plan with the babies support and encourage children’s strong exploratory impulses.

The nursery is purpose-built with specifically designed outdoor areas which naturally encourages the children to independently to access both the indoor and outdoor environments. Children’s development and experiences are recorded through the online software (ParentZone). Parents are encouraged to share their child’s interests directly with their Key Person, this is then planned for as part of the child's next step to further support their development.

The nursery's team of cook’s work endlessly to provide well balanced nutritional meals for all of the children. Using the Eat Better Start Better guidelines the children enjoy a four weekly menu providing a wide variety of dishes.

Reviews

9.3 The Village Nursery has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.299)

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for The Village Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 42 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Village Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 10 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Day Nursery / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Day Nursery receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

    The Average Rating of 4.917 for The Village Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (462 Excellents x 5) + (42 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 504 Ratings = 4.917

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Day Nursery to friends and family?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 4.382 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Village Nursery is based on 10 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 26.2 positive Reviews (131 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 26.2 Target = 0.382

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

Our little boy started at The Village Nursery shortly after his 1st birthday. Having looked around several nurseries we chose The Village Nursery as we were impressed by the facilities and the happy smiling faces of the children there, who were clearly well looked after.

In the 2 and a half years he has been there, our little boy has grown from a child who was nervous of others, into a confident, loving little boy who just loves being at nursery. His development is thanks to the staff who I cannot praise highly enough. The Village Nursery is full of amazing people who care passionately about what they do and this is clear to see in all the children. Our son has had some wonderful experiences during his time at nursery. There certainly never seems to be a dull moment at The Village Nursery!

Sadly we are leaving the area so have no choice but to leave The Village Nursery. Any future nursery will have a lot to live up to and if we could take The Village Nursery with us then we certainly would! An outstanding nursery in every way.

As much as we love the Quays, it is not a secret that the primary schools in the area are not exactly outstanding. This is why shortly after our son was born we started looking for a house in an area with better schools. In the meantime, we put the little one temporarily in The Village Nursery as this, we found, was the best one in the area. We viewed many beautiful places, in immediate proximity to outstanding primary schools. However, the one thing we could not find was a nursery matching the Village Nursery. With having another couple of years until our son makes 4, we realised that the only option we really have is to stay in the area until he is school age and move then.
What makes The Village Nursery different is not "unique infrastructure" like mini petting zoos and such, but the people that work there - competent, qualified and genuinely caring. This has a tremendous impact on the children, who are truly happy and learn new things every day.
P.S. the menu is good too.

My daughter started at The Village Nursery when she was 9 months old. We both found settling in very hard, but the staff could not have been more caring, warm and helpful. They encouraged us to do more settling in sessions to help with the transition, and never made us feel like we were being an inconvenience or that we should rush the process.
My daughter settled in brilliantly with the help of the staff and has since gone on to love going to nursery.
I have absolute confidence and trust in the staff who work there, and I cannot thank them enough for looking after my little girl and helping her grow and learn.
We use the Tapestry online journal, and we love seeing the photos and watching the videos of her playing through the day. She eats well there, sleeps well, and comes home happy.
I know she's had a good day and that the staff are attentive and genuinely care about the children.

My little boy joined The Village Nursery in September 2016. The staff there have been absolutely fantastic in helping me settle him. They have gone above and beyond to help my son develop and continue to do so.

It's a great nursery with dedicated staff in a clean environment. I would definitely recommend to my friends.

Since joining The Village Nursery my daughter has developed in so many ways. She is more confident and balanced and looks forward to going to nursery every week.
Village Nursery itself is a fun and bright environment and I think it provides the background for effective learning. Staff members are very approachable.
Village Nursery is a very caring environment, always encouraging the children to eat all their lunches. I am very pleased with my daughter's overall progress.

My son started at The Village when he was 12 months and although the settling period was extremely difficult for myself as a parent, the babies team made this whole transition so much more bearable.
The girls wholeheartedly put every effort into their care, going above and beyond any expectation.
The impression they have made is something I will never forget. My key person was amazing, meeting her at my home visit for the first time was quite nerve racking, but I knew from that moment I could put my trust in her to care for my son. Over the past 6 months I quite simply couldn't have asked for any more from her.
My son is now 18 months and moving up into toddlers, although I will very much miss my key person and the girls in babies, I already can't wait to see how he develops even further.
The entire team at The Village always go out of their way to ensure that they can do their absolute best for you.
I would absolutely recommend this nursery to anyone looking for the best!

The Village Nursery is really nice, it's very homely and all the staff are very friendly and lovely. My little girl started when she was about 8 months and I was very scared at first as you hear lots of bad things about nurseries but from day one all the staff made me feel very relaxed about leaving her. Her key worker was absolutely fabulous and she really help me trust the nursery also what I found reassuring is that all the staff where very honest so if my little girl had a bad day they would tell me etc that really helped.
As a parent, I know not everyday will be a perfect day so being honest with a parent is one of the most assuring things you can do. The nursery really listen and understand. So for example if your trying a new sleeping pattern or potty training the staff really support you which makes it so much easier for you. I would definitely recommend this nursery. They do so many activities with them and they learn so much and make lots of friends. Such a lovely place!

Sending your baby off to the nursery can be daunting – not just for your child, but also for you as a parent. When my maternity leave came to an end, I was dreading my daughter starting nursery, but The Village helped make the transition easy for us both.

My daughter has now been at The Village for close to a year and loves it. Her confidence has grown, and she has learnt so much. She loves her toddler room and is excited to be dropped off in the morning. It’s so lovely to pick up a happy but tired little girl at the end of the day and to hear what she’s been up to.

The staff at The Village really do go the extra mile to ensure that the children and their parents feel welcome and comfortable. As a mum, it’s so important for me to know that my daughter is not only getting the best level of care but also that she’s having fun and trusts the people looking after her.

I would certainly recommend The Village to friends looking for somewhere to send their child.

My first child joined at 6 months old over two & half years ago. Since then the whole nursery team have become such a big part of our lives. The commitment & enthusiasm throughout the entire team, from nursery manager to nursery apprentice, is so clear to see. I have really valued their focus on creativity and imagination as well as all of the usual development milestones. Every single day has been an adventure for my son (and his little brother who joined the nursery last year), whether it be participating in a "bear hunt" roaming around the large garden or cooking up a storm in the mud (or real!) kitchen. It is clear that the management team have created an environment that encourages the team to "think outside the box" and deliver ever more engaging and exciting ways for the children to develop & grow.
As my children attend full time, the parent stay and play sessions have been so lovely to attend as it is a chance for me to really immerse myself in "their world". I just wish I could stay too!

My daughter has been attending The Village Nursery for more than a year now, her settling in period was handled really well, and before I know it, she was running in for some cuddles with her favourite key person. At the beginning she wasn't speaking a lot, but with the support of the practitioners in her room and their personalised approach in planning next steps for her, she started slowly pronouncing single words, then two word phrases and now speaks freely about all topics she likes. The environments in the nursery are all very inviting and all activities I hear about, that she has taken part in are all very unique. My little girl really enjoys going to The Village Nursery and gets really excited telling me about all the different things she has learnt or explored on the day. The events and the ways the nursery involves me in my daughter's nursery life are outstanding and I really feel involved in my little girl's education.

My son attended the Village Nursery from the age of 9 months until he left to go to school. During his time at the nursery, I cannot fault the care, support and nurturing he received. The nursery made us welcome from day one with their rigorous settling in processes, the opportunities to share his experiences through stay and play sessions and nursery events and the careful consideration for his development. My son enjoyed his time in each age appropriate room and the staff really cared both for and about him. The well-resourced rooms ensured there was plenty of things to engage him and the planned activities were tailored to suit his needs. The outdoor space is amazing and enabled him to learn and experience lots of different things such as planting and growing fruit and vegetables. I cannot recommend The Village Nursery highly enough.

My son started here when he was 10 months old! It was daunting for me but the staff at the nursery made it so welcoming and friendly for me to stay calm on his first day. Ever since his first day, my son runs into the nursery and never wants to come out. Definitely one of the best nurseries I've been to. He enjoys every minute of his day and all the staff are lovely.

My grandson attended this nursery for about 3 years until leaving for his new school. I cannot praise the staff enough. The building is purpose built which means that it is perfectly designed as a nursery. It has a wonderful garden and each room is designed for the age group of children within.
My grandson was always happy; he had wonderfully healthy food; amazing educational opportunities and most important of all a superbly supportive environment. As a grandmother, I was made to feel welcome and I was always kept up to date with his progress. Each member of staff goes above and beyond and they form wonderful bonds with the children. The whole family will miss the nursery.

My daughter has attended this nursery since she was 6 months old and she now leaving at the end of this Month. There has never been a day that has gone by that she hasn't wanted to go in.
This to me is a testament that she feels safe, secure, happy and content. For any working parent, this eases my mind to know that she experiences these feelings. After all their happiness in paramount and The Village promote this attitude too.
What I am constantly amazed at is all the staff know all the children's names even if they haven't looked after that child, this too adds to the 'family' feel.
Our time at The Village is drawing to a close, a time of reflection and affection and we'll remember with fondness.

It was extremely stressful choosing a nursery but after the initial visit at The Village Nursery I was so sure this is where I wanted my daughter to be. Management and staff are extremely friendly and charming. Each room my daughter has been in there has been a strong bond with her key workers and I feel her development has been tailored to her needs. I love the fact the nursery is all one level and the outdoor space is great. I commend the staff with all the projects, parents events and nursery functions that are created. I think the nursery cook does a fantastic job and is innovative with different meals and it gives me a peace of mind to know that meals are prepared freshly on site on a daily basis. I feel my daughter's language skills have increased immensely and her transition out of nappies has been smooth thanks to all the staff. She doesn't stop talking about her day, the staff and her friends. I truly appreciate what the nursery has done and I wouldn't have it any different.

My daughter has attended The Village Nursery since she was 15 months old, she has recently graduated as is starting school. The Village is a great nursery and the staff are amazing. Each key worker we had helped so much with her progression. My daughter is a funny confident little girl and I thank the nursery for helping with that. Any problems we have had have been sorted straight away I am currently on maternity leave with my 2nd daughter and she will most definitely attend The Village.

I had a visit to The village nursery a year and half ago for our duo. I was quite impressed with the very first visit as this nursery, as I thought, that this is the right place where my kids can get enough place to play both in-door and out-door, have on-site cooked food and be in the hands of some caring staff. As time passed, I found the staff actually got involved in individual child care depending on the need. The staff are very friendly and they are ready to do anything for a child's development. The wide range of activities that they plan actually are amazing as sometimes they go over their daily schedule to address the needs. I have seen how my duo has grown positively in a childcare environment. Although a bit expensive but I have now developed a family bond with this nursery and I value their suggestions for my kids. I thank the Village Nursery at Trafford for taking care of my kids till now and would expect them to continue doing the same even in future.

Professional, dedicated, imaginative and caring, are just some of the words that I would use to describe the staff and management at The Village. After a disappointing start at a different nursery chain, my daughter started in the Baby Room at just 10 months old. From my very first interaction with The Village, the Receptionist set the high service standard I had been hoping for. She demonstrated genuine empathy to my situation and promptly arranged for the Manager to contact me. I met with the Manager and Baby Room Supervisor the very next morning, who both restored my confidence in nurseries. Thankfully I was in luck and they had space for my daughter. Through genuine joy to spend time with my daughter over the last 10 months, the staff have helped her wings grow beautifully. I am confident this will continue as she moves in to the Toddler Room.
If you are looking for a childcare provider to take care of your precious child, for all the reasons above, I highly recommend The Village.

Our son joined nursery when he was 3, entering straight into preschool. From the very first visit, it was clear that the nursery was different to others I’d visited – bright, cheerful surroundings and lovely, friendly staff who are obviously happy in their jobs and genuinely care about the children as individuals. The preschool team have made my sons time at the nursery very happy, helping him grow from a shy little boy who barely spoke to a happy, confident and fun-loving child who – most importantly – loves being in nursery and never complains about going. This is due in no small part to their commitment to working with the family as a whole - from the first home visit at the beginning, right the way through to the lovely leavers ceremony for the children moving to school. We will be very sad to leave this summer when our son starts school, but we thank them for everything they’ve done for our son and would happily recommend them to anyone looking for a nursery in the area.

The Village Nursery is such a lovely setting with dedicated, hardworking and professional staff. From the moment my child started Nursery he was welcomed and nurtured by loving staff who kept us updated with all his achievements and milestones. Parents and families are welcomed to join in with lots of events throughout the year. There is a wonderful outdoor area with so many activities for children, and inside all the areas are changed frequently so there is variety to their day. Preschool children go on a trip on the bus to a museum which my son absolutely loved. My son has taken part in so many wonderful activities every day including baking, singing and construction. We have happy memories and he has made a lovely friendship through the Nursery. My son really enjoyed his time at preschool and is incredibly excited about his new adventure to school.

We love this nursery - particularly for the one-level building and a fantastic outside space. My son loves to be outside - it's perfect for him.

He loves the food and when we pick him up, the staff tell us "he ate all" (everyday!). This is really important for us as he was born with a dairy allergy and severe re flux, so we were worried about finding a Nursery that could accommodate giving him specialist formula (as a baby) and as he was weaning, providing a healthy and nutritious diet that took into account his allergy. We need not have worried as they were fantastic and took our concerns seriously.

The Nusery runs regular family events and activities - such as the recent 20 year anniversary Carnival party - that the whole family can enjoy.

The nursery staff are great at taking a child centred approach - observing and responding to each child's interest and individual stage of development (eg use of chopsticks after my son first ate with them on holiday).

The village nursery provides such a stimulating and nurturing environment for my son. I can not praise them enough. As a parent I trust all the carers immensely and won't consider sending my youngest son anywhere else when I return to work from maternity leave. The activities that are organised are creative and often tailor made to the children's specific interests. The atmosphere is lively, fun and friendly but with a clear focus on how to develop our children in the best possible way. I feel the nursery really goes the extra mile, when getting parents involved in what the children get up to when they are there. I am always particularly impressed with the events the nursery puts on outside of normal working hours.

We chose The Village when I was 7 months pregnant to avoid disappointment and get a place! After looking at several nurseries, it had the best feeling when we walked in coupled with the great environment, outdoor space and a wonderful team.

I was apprehensive about leaving my son when I went back to work after being with him full time for 10 months. He settled in with the team really quickly and is coming up to two years at the nursery. The transition between rooms has been seamless, so much so that it's like nothing has changed, which is very reassuring as it shows how at home he is.

The team go the extra mile making sure that home links are maintained with activities that are centred around them and the events they put on are fantastic, from pirate parties to a traditional cooking event.

We couldn't wish for more for Noah's early years education. Big thanks as always to the team. You all do an amazing job!

I highly recommend The Village Nursery. Before our sons first day, we had a home visit from a member of the management team and from his key worker. He also had 2 settling in sessions so when his first day came I felt better and more confident about leaving him.

His 2 key workers have been absolutely brilliant. So caring, enthusiastic, reassuring and lovely. I have to say though all of the staff I have come across, have been nothing but friendly, warm and supportive.

Our son had such varied days and does some brilliant activities to support his learning and to have lots of fun.

The menu is very good and allergies are very well catered for here. The children are provided with a good variety of food and snacks.

We are emigrating to Australia soon and we feel sad that our son has to say goodbye to some lovely people who have been such a good influence on him. We hope we can find a nursery as good as The Village Nursery over there!

My son now 3 years old has been going to this nursery since he was 8 months old, on a full time basis. The care he has received has been first class. I was so worried about leaving him with strangers but almost instantly I realised that the staff were not strangers at all. They were more like family. My son is excelling in many topics and is extremely clever for his age. He will be leaving for big school soon and I can honestly say I don't want him to leave. Thank you for everything you have done for my boy. I will never forget how amazing all of the staff were and I would recommend this nursery to anyone. I myself will be using them again!

My daughter has attended The Village Nursery since being 10 months old. I have been more than happy with the care she has received. Any time there has been any issues, they have been dealt with swiftly and to my satisfaction. I am currently pregnant with my second child and I will almost definitely be sending him to The Village. Can't rate the level of care and love they have given her and I'm thrilled she has spent her nursery experience alongside such loving staff.

The Village Nursery has the perfect balance between professionalism and the personal touch. Every member of staff has been invested in my daughters development not just her key worker. They are always looking at the latest innovations and ideas in early years and again provide personal touches organising events to assist and encourage my child's interests. They always go the extra mile and organise lots of extra events to support the children's development and include the parents in their child's journey.

The setting is really lovely, the room are clean, bright and cheerful with lots and lots of toys and activities all over the place. My little boy has been in the baby room for the past 6 months and every time I go to pick him up he is laughing and playing and having a great time! I love how much he has learnt from the nursery and you can really see how much the staff care for them and they are all so friendly, helpful and cheerful. It really makes a difference leaving your children with such lovely, caring people.
I am always amazed at the daily menu's and how well the children eat as well. Also, the outdoor area is a lovely space and they ensure the children go outside a lot. Another real added bonus here which I haven't seen elsewhere is that there is a separate cot room which is a quiet dark room for the babies to sleep so they aren't disturbed and get a good nap. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this nursery to anyone I know.

As soon as we visited The Village Nursery we knew it was the one we wanted our children to go to. Our son has been there for nearly two years now and we are so pleased with his progress and relationships with his key worker and other staff members. The children are kept busy and happy and we sometimes have a hard time getting our son to leave but we're so relieved that he enjoys being there.
He has learnt so much and always tells us about his day.
It was such an anxious time choosing a nursery but we have never been disappointed. As soon as it's time we will be sending our daughter here also.
Extremely happy with our choice.

This is a fabulous nursery. They went over and above to make me feel better when I left my son there and returned to work. He's been there since he was 6 months old and he's now 28 months. He's been cared for, comforted, well fed and had a great time in every class he's been in. I can't thank the staff enough for helping to become the confident, clever little man that he is. I am so proud of him and of the relationships he has built with the staff along the way. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this nursery to anyone. It's fab!

My son was 8 months old when he started at nursery and as a first time mum about to return to work I was very nervous about leaving him anywhere. The staff at the nursery were amazing and he settled in straight away. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable with lots of activities for the children. There is a cook on site who makes a wide variety of healthy, tasty meals. The garden is huge with sandpit, mud kitchen, story corner and is simply amazing, not to mention the hobbit house at the front of the nursery, the children love it.

All the staff are fantastic, they are friendly, welcoming and helpful which gave me the reassurance that my son is in a friendly and happy environment. He has grown into a cheeky, confident, sociable little boy who loves books and singing songs. The staff all go above and beyond there role at the nursery with putting on lots of events for the children and parents during the day and weekends as well. I would definitely recommend The Village Nursery to everyone.

The nursery supports my child with a wide variety of activities and nurtures her as she grows. A brilliant place to go. I can't recommend it enough. My little girl started in the baby room at 10 months and has developed in leaps and bounds. Her key worker has been fantastic in building really strong relationships with with both her and us and I really couldn't ask for more. Every effort is made to plan for her development with excellent home links to support activities and strengthen her interests and give us ideas to develop at home. My daughter is ready to move to the next room and we are really going to miss where she has been but know she will receive the same level of love, care and support as she grows. We thought we had made the right choice for her nursery place and now are in no doubt. Thank you Village Nursery!

We moved our 2 year old from another nursery to attend the Village as the cost/location was more suitable (and the hobbit house at the entrance!!) We were nervous about the move but he soon settled down due to the lovely welcoming staff. I cannot recommend the Nursery enough, they treat every child as an individual and focus on 'their' interests as well as involving the whole class. The facilities are great and the rooms are full of natural light. The access to the garden is a huge bonus and he often doesn't want to come home... I have particularly enjoyed the parent participation days - The Carnival where a CBeebies personality made an appearance, Mother's Day Event where we planted Sunflowers and Bedtime stories where all the children had to wear nightwear. Unfortunately we are relocating shortly and we will be extremely sad to leave, i just wish we could take the Nursery with us!!!

A fantastic nursery, it really is a wonderful place where my daughter has blossomed so much since starting in the babies room. All the staff are lovely and genuinely care for each child, they have all gone above and beyond our expectations! The nursery offer a healthy and varied menu and encourage the children to try everything, they have also introduced my daughter to lots of different foods. The rooms are well laid out with lots of different activities on offer, and the garden is huge with sand pits and a mud kitchen! At the end of each day you are given detailed information about what you child has done, and what food they ate or tried. We have really enjoyed the special events for grandparents day and mothers/fathers day, especially the weekend events like pirate parties.

My daughter has been at The Village since being 6 months old. Over the last 3 and half years she has developed fantastic relationships with the amazing staff team. The environment is brilliant! All the rooms are really spacious and there are always lots of improvements being made. The garden is a fantastic space and its great how all the rooms open onto the garden, meaning children can access it at all times.
There really is a big focus on care and all the practitioners understand how important it is that each child receives lots of love during their day at nursery. The food is amazing and they have a wide range of different meals available.
They also carry out lots of parent events during the year which are great to attend and helps to make you feel like you are not missing out whilst at work. Its in a great location too!

Fantastic nursery with endless opportunities. The amount of parent events is fantastic, and staff are always well trained and pass on information.

Excellent facilities and I feel valued as a parent.

As someone who works with Ofsted and trains educators, I was nervous about selecting a nursery, due to the amount of 'horror cases' I've had to investigate. However, The Village Nursery hands down beat all others we looked at.

The Village Nursery is truly an outstanding nursery. Both my boys have benefited hugely from the caring and stimulating environment. The staff are very child centred and focus activities on the individual child's interests, as well as group activities. The professionalism of the team really stands out. The building and grounds are very well maintained and the gardens are fantastic. Whatever the weather, the babies and children are encouraged to explore and enjoy the outdoors. The food is healthy, varied and interesting. It's a wonderful place to be!
