Childcare across Greater Manchester and Cheshire

Paintpots Nurseries is dedicated to providing outstanding childcare across Greater Manchester and Cheshire.  We offer four conveniently situated day nurseries serving a variety of local communities and commuters to key regional business centres.

Each nursery has a team of dedicated staff to make certain that your child can play and learn in complete safety. Our facilities are designed to provide a stimulating environment whilst making sure the fun is built-in.

We understand that choosing the right care for your child requires careful consideration. That’s why we offer all prospective customers the opportunity to book a showround to see for yourselves and find out just how well we will look after your child.

Paintpots Nursery Group was established in 2006 with the aim of offering outstanding childcare in Manchester City Centre. We took over an existing Nursery that was providing Day care near the Business Hub of the City and also near the ever expanding Universities that straddle the Oxford Road corridor.

As this venture became ever more successful we looked at what services we could offer to assist parents and we started to look in Manchester and Cheshire for our 2nd Nursery. In 2010 we bought the Old School House Day Nursery in Hartford, Cheshire. And offers day care near Northwich. This was a fantastic acquisition having being established by an ex OFSTED senior inspector as his own ‘blank canvas of what a setting should be. This setting has recently begun to offer after school and holiday care.

In 2013 we set up or 3rd setting in Wythenshawe, Manchester. The setting was set up from scratch and again we looked at what services we could offer parents in addition to just childcare. With this in mind, the Newall Green setting offer after school care and holiday care in a similar way to the setting near Northwich. However, as well as catering for the immediate vicinity, the setting is very close to the M56 for commuters and only 2 minutes from Wythenshawe hospital.

Tom has thrived in your caring & nuturing environment and made life long friendships with children & staff. When we left him in your care at 7.5 months we had no idea he’d turn into the confident, happy & occasionally cheeky little boy he is now. Thank you for all your time, love and hard work!
