Whalley Range

Honeybear Nursery is situated on a quiet street in the heart of Whalley Range, close to Princess Parkway motorway links and Manchester City centre. The location of the nursery makes it convenient for those travelling to work and those that live in the surrounding area.


We opened in 1990, the nursery is based in a church hall and part of St Margaret’s church is used for our toddler and pre-school children. The nursery has a warm, family feel and over the years has been remodelled to best suit the needs of our children and families. We are currently registered for 37 children.


We have a safe and secure outdoor play area with a soft cushioned garden for our babies and teenies. The nursery has been designed for the upmost safety for our children.


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 spaces along with one sessions available. We are closed for public bank holidays and have a short closure between Christmas and New Year.


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.
