We are Outstanding!


We are Outstanding!

In our most recent inspection, both Longsight and Slade Lane Nurseries were awarded Ofsted Outstanding in ALL areas of quality standards in early years provision.

The Inspector observed:

“Children have uninterrupted time to be creative, explore and investigate indoors and outdoors. The quality of teaching is excellent. “

“Teaching is inspirational.”

“Practitioners are outstanding role models who lead by example. They have high expectations of children’s learning and the respect they show each other. Children take pleasure in the ample outdoor opportunities on offer. They have a wealth of resources to access, which is used to their full capacity.”

What our parents and carers say:


“I am really thankful to all of the members of Longsight branch. Thank you so much, everyone, for making my son happy and day by day he is going to be very social. Love love love…”

   “The staff are lovely and welcoming. I am really thankful to all the staff at Slade Lane Nursery.”

   “Lovely staff my daughter loves it here. Lots of educational activities and warm approach to all parents large rooms                                  with great outdoor area.”

   “My girls attend the Longsight Nursery and are doing really well. The staff are really nice and helpful. One of my girls has special needs and has settled right in with lots of support. Happy children=happy mummy. Thanks everyone from the bottom of my heart.”

  “My two sons attend the Slade lane nursery and I am so pleased my kids love it and looking forward to always going. The support from the staff is amazing.”
