Your local nursery in Preston, Lancashire. Holyrood Nursery is situated just off Dunkirk Lane, near the M6.

Servicing Preston and Leyland near the M6

At Poplars Nursery in Leyland we all understand and appreciate how difficult it can be to leave your child in the care of others. We would therefore like to assure you that we strive to create a family atmosphere whilst providing opportunities and experiences that support your child with their social, emotional and developmental needs.

Poplars is located in its own secure grounds with car park. The children’s areas are all at ground floor level and each age group has access to our large and exciting outdoor environment.

Upstairs we have staff facilities, an office and a meeting room which can be used by parents and visiting professionals.

We have a professional kitchen where our healthy and nutritious meals are prepared by our in-house cook. We are happy to cater for children with differing dietary requirements and of course, adapt the menu to suit all stages of weaning for our youngest children.

We have built valued partnerships with local schools and teachers are invited to Poplars to help aid children’s transitions to school.

We are very proud of our staff team who have a wealth of childcare experience between them. All are qualified to at least level 3, and have paediatric first aid, food safety and safeguarding certificates along with regular in-house and external training.

We have an open house policy so please browse through the website but do come along and see us at your convenience. The only thing that we ask is that you try to avoid the lunchtime period between 11.30 and 1.30 – this will enable us to ensure you have the time required to see what life at Poplars is all about and ask any questions that you may have.
