Day Nursery Burnage

Burnage Sure Start, Broadhill Road, Burnage, Manchester, M19 1AG

Brighter Beginnings
Day Nursery Burnage

Brighter Beginnings Burnage is a large setting in the heart of Burnage, South Manchester, just off Kingsway tucked down besides St. Bernard’s Primary School and situated on Broadhill Road. The setting is within a large Sure Start Children’s Centre with access to many other local authority services.

The nursery itself has 5 playrooms surrounding a large open central area and has a wonderfully spacious outdoor provision surrounding all the nursery playrooms so that all children have free access to play outside. Our nursery has a dedicated 'Ready For School' room where children learn all the skills they need to prepare them for school and we encourage a 'curiosity approach' by providing for example real furniture and items instead toys in the home corner.

Our nearest settings are Fallowfield and Rusholme

About our manager

The Nursery Manager is Natasha McCloud. She has been instrumental in bringing Burnage into the wonderful state that it is in. Upon the last visit with our internal quality team the nursery was given great praise over its "learning walk" which Natasha developed in conjunction with the previous manager. Natasha is a new manager to Brighter Beginnings but she is already showing us that she has what it takes to run a fantastic setting.

Natasha says about Brighter Beginnings Day Nursery Burnage:

"At Brighter Beginnings Burnage our daily routine always reflects the interest and needs of our children. we have lots of trees and open spaces around us and our own friendly squirrel often spends the day with us. Our nursery has a dedicated social eating area where children have the opportunity to join together and learn from each other.

Each playroom has its own outdoor area where the children can explore freely and safely.  Our routine focuses on continuous provision which includes our spacious outside areas, teacher led sessions and school readiness. We are able to provide an exciting learning environment because of our fantastic team of excellent practitioners and the input from our parents using our children’s voice. Come and have a look round!"

Burnage - 2018

“My child has been at this nursery for 8 months now and was very clingy to myself, now he has changed into a different little boy. He has a great relationship with all the staff here. When he first started, he wouldn't take his coat off at all. Now its bye Mum as soon as he gets in. All the staff are very good, can’t fault them. I am very happy and content dropping my child off knowing he is absolutely fine all day while I am at work. Definitely recommend to other parents.”
