Our latest news
After more than 20 years of providing local families with exceptional childcare from our base on St John’s Road in Mosley Common, we’re all settled in and celebrating our move to our new home on the newly established Parr Bridge Retail Park.
Located adjacent to the new Lidl store on Mosley Common Road, the purpose-built nursery provides a unique environment cram packed with facilities and resources designed to inspire and engage young minds and ensure they have fun every single day.
Step through the doors and you’ll quickly see that Best Friends isn’t any ordinary nursery.
You won’t find bold primary colours splashed on every wall, but instead a nursery full of natural objects and neutral tones. Check out the stunning living wall in reception; a display board made from bed springs in one of two toddlers’ rooms; an amazing story-telling area complete with a full-size tree in the pre-school room as well as an array of other unusual objects throughout the setting and you soon realise what an amazing environment the Best Friends’ team have created.
The plastic toys found in many nurseries have taken a back seat, replaced with ‘things’ designed to spark imagination and awaken creativity. In the Pre School home corner, you’ll find an antique lamp, rotary dial telephones, a Persian rug… real objects that open up a whole new world of opportunities to learn.
A huge favourite with children at the nursery, Best Friend’s soft play area has made the trip over to their new site and work is well on the way to complete a fabulous sensory room that will provide a relaxing and stimulating place for children of all ages to enjoy.
Located a stone’s throw from the A580 East Lancashire Road, the nursery is ideally situated for families across the Tyldesley, Ellenbrook, Boothstown and Worsley area and with its very own private car park, drop off and pick up couldn’t be easier.
An extraordinary indoor environment is matched outdoors with every age group able to access their very own outdoor spaces. A fabulous all-weather garden featuring a race track, adventure playground, learning snug and much more runs the full length of the nursery whilst upstairs toddlers have access to a stunning astro-turfed terraced play area. Away from the main garden area, children in the baby rooms have their own little oasis of calm to explore complete with a wonderful playhouse.
Melissa Paulden, Best Friends Nursery Manager:
“We were sad to be leaving our old space but our new home is just incredible! Quite simply it has everything you could ever wish for in a nursery. The children and our amazing nursery team have access to amazing spaces inside and out. We have worked hard to create environments that are curiously different for every age group, providing areas that are fun, interesting and unusual and that are designed to stimulate children’s learning and development. We can’t wait to show parents everything we have to offer!”
