Day Nursery


Family Focussed: Community Driven

About Us

Here at Canterbury Road Day Nursery, we are committed to creating a home from home learning environment that supports the whole family unit. We promise to ensure you feel listened to, valued and in control of your unique journey. The needs of our families are at the heart of everything we do, this ethos is driven forwards by Dionne, our Family Co-ordinator, who’s role is to assist you every step of the way.

The development of children’s independence is embedded in every aspect of Nursery life, from our flexible and fluid curriculum to our enabling environments. Our experienced team are committed to ensuring that each child leaves the setting with the skills and knowledge they need to reach their full potential as independent learners.

We are passionate about providing first-hand learning experiences, where children thrive from being able to make sense of the world around them and develop their creative thinking. As proud members of Davyhulme, we take every opportunity to collaborate, unify and upskill our local community to ensure the good health and well-being of our children.

Why chose Canterbury Road Day Nursery

Family Focused

From the moment you make contact with a member of our team, we hope that you feel our family focused ethos. We strive to ensure that not only your child, but you as a family feel supported through this unique journey.

Passionate Practitioners

At Canterbury Road we have a dedicated team of practitioners with a wealth of knowledge, who continuously strive to improve outcomes for the children in their care by undertaking various training courses.


Based in the centre of Urmston we have access to local amenities that we use to help children learn about their wider community, such as our Allotment attached to the local church. Understanding the importance of social learning, we offer a range of extra-curricular sessions at no additional cost.
