Dear Parents,

Welcome to Old Crofts Bank Nursery and Pre-school located in Urmston close to many schools and motorway networks.

Established in 1997 our homely nursery aims to create a caring and nurturing environment for all our children within the setting. Our long-standing staff members have a vast knowledge and experience of caring and educating children between the ages of 3 months to 5 years.

Our warm and inviting setting where we provide a wide range of activities for the children and such activities are planned with children’s individual needs and interests at heart. We are extremely proud of our nursery team, the reputation we have built over the years and the caring and stimulating environment we have created; and pleased to be recognised as a ‘Good’ setting by Ofsted.

We understand choosing a nursery for your precious little ones can be a daunting time for you, but our aim is to not only make our children feel safe and cared for, but also you the parents/guardians too.

A little bit about us

Our mission is to deliver the highest standards of childcare and early years education, while always striving for continuous improvement. We believe a child’s early years are the most critical for developing the foundations of learning, behaviour and emotional well-being, which all influence later outcomes in school, work and society. Accordingly, we offer:

  • A home from home setting
  • A settled staff team, many of which have been with us for over 10 years
  • Safe outdoor space for all nursery ages
  • Nutritious homemade meals made fresh onsite daily
  • Journals to keep parents updated to your child’s progress
  • Free funding places available for 2-year olds and for 15 and 30 hours for 3- & 4-year olds

What matters most to us

Put the child first

If a child is in a happy, loving environment and getting consistently attentive care, then everything else will fall into place

Individualised care

We pay careful attention to the needs and interests of each child, encouraging all children to reach their full potential

Highest standards

We insist on relentlessly high standards across all aspects of childcare, striving for continuous improvement

Real Passion

We choose to only surround ourselves with professionals that have a deep-rooted passion for educating children
