Day Nursery Rusholme

Brighter Beginnings Day Nursery Rusholme is situated in the heart of Rusholme’s curry mile. We are located just off Wilmslow road on Great Western Street. The setting is part of a large Sure Start centre. We enjoy all the services and programs that the centre has to offer. The setting has 6 generously sized playrooms around one large central playroom. We are surrounded by a very large and well-resourced outdoor space.

Children can access outdoors from every playroom. Our nursery has a 'Ready For School' room where children learn skills to prepare for school. We encourage a 'curiosity approach' at Brighter Beginnings Day Nursery Rusholme. We providing real furniture and items instead of toys in the home corner for instance. Along with this we have our own specialist Forest Schools Teacher enabling our children to have an exciting outdoor curriculum which takes place in all weathers.

The nearest two other Brighter Beginnings settings to us are Burnage and Fallowfield

“My daughter started nursery at the beginning of January, and she settled in straight away. Her speech has come on amazingly in the time she has been at the nursery, which is fantastic. She looks forward to going to nursery and has made new friends. I am pleased with her progress and happy that I have chosen this nursery for my child”

Rusholme 2018

“My 3-year-old son has been going to this nursery for a year and he absolutely loves it. The nursery has very friendly staff. A lot of different toys to explore and they do a lot of other activities (taking the kids outside, to a museum, airport). They have Forest School which is very enjoyable to my child and my other little one 1-year-old daughter also joined the same nursery and she settled there very well. When my kids are at nursery, I know they are in good hands. They are always happy there are in good hands. They are always happy there playing a lot, learning new skills. Highly recommended.”
