Welcome to The Red House Nursery
We provide nursery childcare for children aged 0-5 in our Edwardian red brick house in Smithills, Bolton. Parents of children who attend our nursery have told us they can see we take pride in our ethos of providing childcare where love, care and attention go hand in hand. They have confidence we do everything we can to make their child happy and settled with their friends at the Red House.
Our Proprietor of the Nursery is a qualified Primary school teacher and with our management team, we have over 20 years of experience in child care. This experience combined with our young and enthusiastic team of carers ensures we have the appropriate qualities to ensure the safety and enjoyment of the children who attend. We have achieved the Early Years Professional Status and have therefore been able to adopt the new EYFS nursery curriculum in advance of government targets.
We focus on learning through play and provide nursery care with the safety and enjoyment of our children being essential in our success. Parents tell us they feel part our set up and are appreciative of the fact they are kept fully aware of the curriculum and more importantly how their child is developing and the activities their child has been involved in. We do this by giving parents continual access to their own child's development folder which provides photos, observations and a history of activities. We have a message board and many parents have become more involved by making their own suggestions of activities we could try.
We have recently opened a new Pre School unit and expanded our Baby Unit and Toddler facilities at our Bolton Nursery, providing additional space and equipment. Many positive comments are made on our large, outdoor play area and it gives us real pleasure seeing the children at the Red House Nursery become excited about the prospect of playing outside. It makes us happy to hear children talking about how they have been close to and learned about nature at it's best and this is due to the outside facilities being surrounded by woodland. We have a wonderful cook providing home cooking and baking of our children's meals.
The Red House Nursery in Bolton has an association with Book Start and each year every child receives a bag with several books at no cost to the parent, to encourage bed time reading and stories to be read at home.
We take walks to the local Moss Bank Park in Bolton which has won Green Flag awards for it's cleanliness. We visit Butterfly World and a local toddler farm and take babies in the prams and push chairs to make sure we are all involved. Our Carer's take pleasure in hearing children excitedly telling their parents they've seen some rabbits or butterflies at home time!
We certainly try to be a second home to everyone and Ofsted have praised our homely and welcoming atmosphere.
Please call us, or email us if you have any questions. When you want to visit us, feel free to drop by when you please. We don't ask for you to make an appointment as we are told from a parents perspective it's always best to see a nursery in full swing.
We hope you enjoy our web site, we have provided an overview of the curriculum, our nursery setting, the care we provide and we have included some examples of the activities we follow with the children who attend. Parents have asked us to include examples of activities they can try at home to see how their children has developed at the Red House and under our activities pages we have attempted to do so.
