Sutton Road Nursery Ltd

Sutton Road Nursery Logo

Sutton Road Nursery was registered in 2013, when Manchester City Council closed most of its childcare provision across Manchester. We were based at Mount Road Childrens Centre and then Sacred Heart Childrens Centre, and very much wanted to continue to work with the families from the Gorton and surrounding areas that we have been serving for the past 20 plus years. We offer excellent, flexible and affordable Childcare places, that can be adapted to anyones needs.

We offer places for children from 03 months to 5 years in daycare, and from 3 years to 8 years in holiday care and After scchool club. The nursery provides funded education for 2, 3, and 4 year old children through the government 15 / 30  hour free places scheme, as well as full and part time flexible paid places.

The nursery supports children with special educational needs, and/or disabilities. We support children that do not speak English as their first language, and have staff members that can speak a number of languages. Our nursery is fully adapted to support this, with a lift and wide accesible doors for those with limited mobility.

Our outside and inside areas have been fully developed by ourselves with help from the local community and advisory teachers to provide an enriching, stimulating learning journey for your child. Our staff compliment this with bags of enthusiasm and experience, with some having worked with us for over 10 years. Everything is geared towards giving your child the best possible start in life, with full support for parents and carers.

Do not hesitate to contact us during office hours on our landline, or at any other time on the mobile number provided below with any queries or questions you may have, we can accomodate almost every siuation.
