Description

We are a "not for profit" registered Charity based in the Nursery building. We pride ourselves on good quality childcare and education. We have a caring and professional staff team who are all qualified to level 3 or above.

You and your child will always be greeted by the same staff team each day to foster good relationships and give you consistency of care. We take children from 6 months to 3 years. We also provide a wrap-around service for the children who attend Birley Nursery e.g. if a child sttend nursery 5 morning, they may come to for lunch an afternoon to make a full day. 

We provide places for the 15 hours free entitlement for 2 year olds.
