Our Nursery

Here at Holyrood Swinton we offer quality Childcare and Early Education for children from birth to 5 years of age. We also offer Out of School Care, including a Holiday Club for children from 3 - 11 years of age. 

Housed in a large detached property, we are located on Rake Lane, just minutes from the centre of Swinton. With convenient links to public transport, a large off-street car park with space for drop off and collection, and being located just a short drive from the motorway, we are a convenient choice for families living in Manchester and beyond. Find us here.

Playrooms within our nursery are generously proportioned, carefully planned and extensively resourced to create inspiring learning environments in which children can grow and learn with confidence. We pride ourselves on offering children a wide range of activities and all of our children have access to outdoor play areas offering the opportunity for regular outdoor learning experiences across of all areas of the curriculum. 

Our nursery has been an established and respected Centre for Early Year's Care in Swinton for over 14 years and during this time has developed a strong reputation for delivering quality and meeting the needs of individual children and their families.

We accept all childcare vouchers and offer 2 year old funding as well as preschool funding. Our spaces can fill very fast so we do recommend you enquire as early as possible to ensure you get the sessions and start date you require.
