Honeybear Nursery is situated on Moss Lane close to Hale and Altrincham town centre. The location is ideal for those travelling by train/tram into Manchester City Centre and all motorway links.


We opened in August 2004. The nursery is a combination of a detached house with the nursery over two floors and a good outside space and in 2014 we opened a specialised under 2 section of the nursery, a back building to the existing nursery, all remodelled to create a warm, homely environment. We are currently registered for 50 children. We also have a dedicated room for our Big Bear Children which is situation on the 2nd floor offering a great space for our before and after school children.


We have 4 main rooms; the babies have their own sleep area connected to the main room and their own separate nappy changing area. Teenies and Toddlers rooms are located downstairs and have been designed to best suit the needs of the children, with access to the outside play area. Upstairs, the pre-school children, enjoy a large space with an attached bathroom.


All children are in small key groups of no more than 8 children. This ensures we keep a nice family feel and children are not overwhelmed.


We have a safe and secure outdoor play area.


We offer both full and part time day care for children aged birth to 5 years. The nursery is open from 7:30am to 6:30pm, Monday to Friday. We currently have limited flexible places available including one day sessions. We are closed for public bank holidays and have a short closure between Christmas and New Year.
We offer Big Bear Club for children attending Stamford Park School, for more information see the Big Bear section of the website or give the Nursery a call.


We have an onsite cook and meals are home made; we believe in a healthy, nutritional diet.


Our children take part in many varied age/stage appropriate activities. Our staff ensure activities and experiences are based around the individual child and their interests. We ensure our children are stimulated, engaged and have fun as they learn.
