The staff at Holyrood Nursery Swinton are lovely, very professional and caring. With regards to the nursery, the rooms are light and airy, with great chillout spaces. All of the facilities are excellent inside and outside. The outside space is great, with plenty of room and things to do.

Janelle, P

Since starting my daughter at Holyrood she has come on in leaps and bounds. She thoroughly enjoys her time at nursery. The staff and management are fantastic. I wouldn’t think about alternative childcare, the nursery is very clean, bright and friendly.

Jade, C

This is an amazing, friendly and welcoming nursery. My daughter settled in really well and loves attending. All members of staff are lovely and caring. As a working mum, I know my daughter is safe and being well looked after and doing different and fun activities. These include learning new sounds, football, dance and many more. I cannot fault this nursery at all. The food is freshly cooked which my daughter loves and they have a brilliant outdoor area for all types of weather.

Outdoors and Nature

We love to get outside at Holyrood, Swinton! 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 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. It is our belief that there is no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing. For this reason, 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! Holyrood Nursery Swinton is a registered ECO-Nursery and is committed to teaching our children about their environment and the effect we have on it in our day to day lives.
