Tiddlywinks Day Nursery In Manchester
A family run business established in 1994, based in North Manchester. Tiddlywinks Day Nursery offers families a high quality, flexible, child centred service where parents can be confident in the care and education their child will receive with us.
We aim to make each child’s time with us a happy, fun filled and exciting journey in which we work in close partnership with parents and carers sharing each milestone.
We ensure that each child’s individual needs and interests are catered for and that your children grow and develop into confident and capable learners by implementing the Early Years Foundation Stage within each setting, which is a framework for children up to the age of five, setting out seven key areas of learning around which we base our activities.
A Little Bit About Us
25 years ago the story of Tiddlywinks Day Nursery started at our Hill Lane nursery. In 1994 the family run business began with husband & wife David and Imelda Mihell following the conversion of a previous farmhouse where the family had lived. Imelda oversaw the day to day running of the nursery as manager creating a nursery full of character and charm which the children and families viewed as a home from home.
Over the years Tiddlywinks have steadily expanded from their original 18 place nursery to their current provision of six nurseries providing daily care for over 600 children and Tiddlywinks 4 Out of School Clubs providing daily care for over 120 children. Our aim is to provide a High Quality Childcare service ensuring that your child will be in a warm, professional and caring environment. We have continually and successfully developed and have been recognised for our standards and dedication to childcare through national initiatives including Investors in Children, Investors in People, Quality in Play and locally through Manchester’s QAF award.
We are registered with OFSTED and comply with all aspects of the Children’s Act 1989. Four of our nurseries have been inspected within the last three years and they are all graded OFSTED outstanding!
Staff members have extensive valuable experience, in addition to possessing NNEB, BTEC and NVQ level 3 in childcare qualifications. OFSTED standards require 50% qualified staff, we thrive to provide 100% qualified staff within all of our nurseries.
The ethos of developing staff through care, nurture and praise continues from the foundations Imelda put into place 25 years ago. Staff play a vital role in the development of the nursery ensuring they provide the best possible care and education for the children.
However, not only does our group get national recognition – so does our very own Mellie from Tiddlywinks Bury Nursery for being selected as a finalist for Nursery Practitioner of the Year. We couldn’t be more proud.
