Butterflies Nursery

We provide a quality childcare service catering for each individual child’s needs, in a safe, stimulating environment. Through the planned curriculum provided by our qualified staff team we encourage your child to grow and develop whilst giving you the security and peace of mind that they are safe and happy.

The activities offered are built on the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, which will make a positive contribution to children’s early development and learning. The range of activities include: free play, sand, water, creative, music, stories and many, many more fun activities.

The nursery building is part of the Oldham college campus and situated next to the main building, making it easy to drop off and collect your child within a few minutes. We also have a large well equipped outdoor play area for children to develop their physical skills.
