Laura says about Brighter Beginnings Day Nursery Openshaw:

"At Brighter Beginnings Wetherby Street we welcome children and their families many of whom are directly from the  local community. Our aim is for the children to feel safe, happy and valued while encouraging self-confidence and independence. Embedded throughout our curriculum are opportunities for the children to play, developing skills to support them with their next adventures.

Our Wetherby Street nursery is busy and friendly. We have our own allotment close by and the children make regular visits to inspect their own grown fruit and vegetables. We are also close to lots of parks, shops and places of interest and we enjoy taking the children on walks to explore the community. Children and parents feel at home here. Come and have a look round!"

Wetherby Street 2018

“My son is always happy to go to nursery and reluctant to leave. He has started to learn to write and was able to write 'Mummy' the other day. I was very pleased with his progress. The nursery also organises trips out. They recently went to Portland Basin Museum and my son enjoyed it immensely.”
