Our Nursery


Welcome to Holyrood Nursery Swinton where we provide stimulating and inspiring childcare for children from birth to 5 years.

Holyrood Swinton has been an established and trusted childcare and early education centre for over 14 years. Children are cared for by an enthusiastic, skilled and experienced team of childcare practitioners who plan activities and learning experiences to meet the needs of each individual child. We encourage the development of children through play, interaction, creativity, physical activity and a warm and nurturing environment.

Our nursery is housed in a large detached property with spacious and specially designed playrooms for each age group. We also have a large outdoor play area equipped with a wide selection of resources, allowing us to deliver many activities and learning opportunities outdoors. 

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.
