Childcare Nurseries
in Manchester and Oldham

Brighter Beginnings is a family-run company and has been trading for over 25 years in the childcare field. We first started out with a single children’s nursery in Manchester in 1991 and have now grown to have 10 full day care settings across North and South Manchester and Oldham. We are one of Greater Manchester’s highest quality providers. This is shown by our consistent Ofsted Outstanding inspection outcomes. You can read out reports here.

We also run the North-West’s largest training academy specialising in early years apprenticeships and CPD short courses.

Brighter Beginnings

Brighter Beginnings is our nursery group where we provide flexible, high quality full day care from 4 months to 5 years for working parents along with free entitlement sessions for 2, 3 and 4 year-olds. We have more Outstanding settings than any other nursery group in Manchester and Oldham. Ofsted consistently report that all our children make excellent progress.


Brighter Minds

Brighter Minds is our newly launched Outstanding Nursery School provision. Here our practitioners prepare children for the next stage in their education which may be a school nursery or a reception class. Brighter Minds has been developed to help working parents access full day care with quality education until children reach statutory age for school.


Brighter Beginnings
Early Years Training

Brighter Beginnings Early Years Training is our training academy. We specialise in early year’s apprenticeships working with a variety of employers as well as training staff for our own settings. Our training team are all from early years backgrounds so nursery employers can be sure we understand the skills they need for their workforce throughout the apprenticeship training and finally when the young person qualifies.
