Parent Reviews

Liam, M

Our son attended this nursery from April 2019 to September 2020. We have relocated, hence why he no longer attends Holyrood Salford. We can’t praise the staff and this nursery enough. Our son loved every minute of his time here and continues to talk about his friends from Holyrood. Every member of staff is friendly and caring. They always greeted us and our child with smiles. Our son has developed so much since attending Holyrood, and we have nothing but praise for them. This nursery has a lot of different activities for the children and encourages lots of time outside. Thank you all so much!

The staff and management are friendly, caring, and professional. My child speaks very fondly of them when at home. They provide a high standard of care. My little girl is always happy and chatting about her day when picked up. I can not fault this nursery in any way. My child loves it and I feel totally at ease leaving her in the care of the staff there. When choosing a nursery, we went and looked at several others in the same general radius. I am so glad we chose Holyrood, Salford. I love it and so does my daughter.


At first, I thought a nursery with a cheaper fee would have lower quality service compared to the expensive ones, but I was wrong. Holyrood Nursery, Salford is wonderful. The staff are really professional and always try to deliver the best they can. They are also flexible in terms of managing the slots which my wife finds it is really helpful, especially when she is a postgraduate student and sometimes her timetable has to change depending on her supervisors availability. In short, I would highly recommend Holyrood, Salford nursery. Excellent staff, affordable fees, couldn’t be better.

Outdoors and Nature

We love to get outside at Holyrood, Salford! Each of our 4 rooms has its own separate inviting outside space, all appropriately set up for their age groups. All of our outdoor areas provide children with opportunities to get fresh air and have fun in a safe and secure environment.

The children love playing in our gardens which offer a variety of activities including mud kitchens, water play, outdoor classrooms and many more resources to promote safe and fun outdoor play. As well as access to our fabulous outdoor play areas, children of all ages enjoy regular walks in the local area. Our youngest children are often seen out in our double buggies enjoying the fresh air, sights and sounds of the local community.

We use high visibility vests to keep children safe when out on trips away from the nursery. We believe there is no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing – so we ask parents to provide their children with appropriate clothing for all types of weather.

We are committed to being an environmentally friendly nursery, making changes wherever we can in order to make the world a cleaner place! We are a registered ECO-Nursery and are committed to teach our children about their environment and the effect we have on it in our day to day lives.
