Additional Services

Hairdressing Service

We know how difficult it can be for some young children and parents when it’s time for a haircut!

We have a local hairdresser come to nursery every 6 to 8 weeks. We set up a mini salon and make having a haircut a fun event. We find that children are more comfortable as they are in a familiar atmosphere.

Trips & Outings

Trips and outings range from a trip to ‘Farmer Ted’s’ to regular walks along the canal to feed the ducks, to the post box to post letters, a walk to the park or to go and watch Wigan Athletic train just around the corner.

In the School Holiday Club we aim to do something different each week ie. The cinema, bowling and more recently Manchester Museum.

Visitors

We are visited regularly by for example the Fire Service with a fire engine and the Road Safety Team. We are also visited by Creepy John who brings a range of tropical creatures and Acorn Farm who bring a selection of farm animals. We try to arrange visits from people appropriate to subjects that we are exploring.

Nappies, Sun cream & Teeth cleaning etc.

Unlike most nurseries we provide nappies, baby wipes, nappy cream and baby food for the younger children. We provide your child with a toothbrush and toothpaste as part of the ‘stop the rot’ campaign and sun cream for all children subject to your approval.

Pro-Kicks

We have coaching sessions run by ‘ProKicks’. They are 45 minute sessions carefully planned and designed to improve a child’s fundamental movement skills, agility, balance, co-ordination, self esteem and confidence. Visit their website for further details.
