Brighter Beginnings Newton Heath Nursery and After School Club is situated in the heart of Newton Heath, just behind Church Street on Great Newton Street. The nursery is set within the large Sure Start Children’s Centre Hub of Newton Heath and enjoys close links with a variety of services from the site. The nursery has five large playrooms including a recently added purpose-built playroom for our term time only children. The setting also enjoys large and well-resourced outdoor spaces. A gardening area provides the children with space to grow their own vegetables. We have a wealth of resources in our local community that we access and the children enjoy regular visits to the local library and going on adventures in the many green spaces around.
We provide before and after school care and holiday club and currently have links with our local primary schools.
The Nursery Manager is Jenny Passman. Jenny was a Brighter Beginnings Senior Deputy before being promoted to nursery manager at Newton Heath one of our biggest nurseries. She is an energetic leader and always ensures the playrooms are full of fantastic activities and learning opportunities for the children. Jenny ensures high quality provision for the children to progress and this includes teacher led sessions to prepare the children with all the skills they need when they move on to school
"At Newton Heath we are always looking for new and exciting activities to engage our children. We know how children learn and how important early education is to their future. We understand how following what interests and excites them helps them learn and grow in confidence especially looking after our nursery pets- our rabbit called Fudge and our hamster called Fluffy. We have a large and well resourced outside play area and we go out on many trips to see the canal boats and to the library. The children have access to dancing and football. Our preschool room is carefully organised to prepare our children for school, ensuring they are equipped with all the skills they need so they can go on to achieve in the next stage of their education. Come and have a look round!"
The nursery offers all year-round full day care for children from birth to 5 years of age. We also offer 15 hours free entitlement for 2, 3 and 4-year olds along with 30-hour childcare for children aged 3 and 4 years of age and After School and Holiday clubs for children up to the age of 11 years and 16 years for children with additional needs.

My son settled very easily here and loves coming he is always very excited to go in the mornings, he comes home and tells me all about his day, he especially loves the football and swimming they do with him, the staff are helpful and always let me know how he has been and if anything has happened throughout the day.
