We are situated at Carrington Lane Methodist Church on Ennerdale Drive, Sale, Cheshire which has easy access from the main road, providing a car park to the side of the building. We have operated in the Sale area for the last 12 years.


We have two bright, spacious and stimulating rooms for the age group’s 0-2’s and 2-5’s.

All our staff are appointed following a vigorous and careful selection process in accordance with Ofsted requirements, which includes obtaining a DBS enhanced check and  references. We employ a nursery Manager who is super-numeracy to staffing ratios, a Deputy Manager and have nursery nurses in each room. All our staff are encouraged to continue training by attending regular courses and all hold an up to date first aid, basic food hygiene and safeguarding certificates.


Our staff hold various accredited qualifications such as NVQ (levels 2 & 3), NNEB, CACHE (level 3), BTEC. We encourage staff to continue learning, to develop and update their skills by supporting them through training attending a variety of child care courses.

We also have staff trained to NVQ Level 5 in Management.

 We currently provide care for children placed by the local children’s centre, SENAS, TEDS/SIS aswell as providing places for families entitled to free education for 2, 3 and 4 year old children.  Aswell as this we run full private daycare and morning/afternoon playgroup sessions all year round. We work closely with the local authority to ensure that the care provided is suitable to all of the children and that all children are meeting their developmental milestones.

We have taken part in a project with Early Excellence based entirely on 2 year old children and the best practice for providing care for them specifically. Our continuous provision has been adapted already as new resources were provided as part of this project; this has enhanced other areas of the nursery.

We work on fundraising projects inviting the local community into the setting and giving parents more chance to become involved in the setting.

We are currently working as part of the Trafford Quality Assurance process, showing our commitment to Continuous Quality Improvement.
