About New moston

New Moston nursery is our longest established setting that opened in 1991. Our first ever nursery setting, this was also the  first of our nurseries  to gain the outstanding quality that Brighter Beginnings is known for. Set right on Hollinwood Avenue on the main A6104 in New Moston between Manchester and Oldham, the setting is very easy to find. It has a generously resourced outdoor space and several indoor play areas.

New Moston is a small cosy, and friendly nursery. It offers a nurturing environment that is particularly good for our young babies. The nursery preschool room prepares children for the next stage in their education in a calm learning environment designed to equip the children with all the skills they will need when they go to school.
