Storytimes Private Day Nursery and Pre-school

Storytimes Private Day Nursery and Pre-school is a magical new nursery in Atherton, providing exceptional care and education for children aged birth to five.

The newly refurbished nursery on Leigh Road boasts two fabulous outdoor play areas with a mud kitchen, dens, painting tunnel, bug hotel, theatre stage and more! The children go on expeditions into these adventure gardens every day, come rain or shine.

Storytimes’ bright spacious playrooms are filled with state-of-the-art toys and resources, helping children to learn in a stimulating environment. There are special rooms for all stages of development, from the soft and cosy Baby Rooms to the exciting Pre-school Rooms - where children are prepared for big school.

Children at the nursery enjoy a delicious seasonal menu bursting with fresh fruit, vegetables, meat and fish. All of the nursery’s healthy meals and snacks are freshly prepared on-site by the Nursery Chef, and can be altered to meet any special dietary requirements.

Fun learning activities are supported by the nursery’s highly qualified team of childcare practitioners, who keep parents involved by keeping a Learning Journey for each child.
