Welcome to Bury College Nursery, providers of high quality care for children aged 3 month to 5 year olds since 2004. It is an active and caring nursery with all sorts of exciting and adventurous learning experiences, every day.
The nursery is conveniently located in the grounds of Bury College and close proximity to Bury town centre. Ideal for students from the college and families from the local area and wider community. This architecturally designed building and stunning outdoor facilities has kept the child’s development and experiences at the forefront of any design decision.
Bury College Nursery is part of the Fisherfield Childcare and our mascot is Betsy the bear. We have been awarded by Ofsted as outstanding in providing childcare service ranging from 3 months to 5 years old. We offer a blend of AM, PM sessions and Full Day Care options for 51 weeks of the year.
We have been providing an excellent childcare service in the development of children for over 11 years. We are passionate in giving your child the opportunity to thrive in a caring, safe, engaging fun place, to watch their personalities and skills grow, in preparation for their next steps, including school readiness.
We work very closely with parents, in addition to the daily handover chats and newsletter we recently introduced iConnect which has been a great success. Parents have praised the ease of use, and the delight of sharing the activities of their child anytime and anywhere.
