‘A flexible range of childcare options to suit your needs’

All Saints’ Nursery

Our Nursery is situated in the Bowyer Hall at All Saints Church in Marple. We have a happy, safe and stimulating environment, which enables children to make their own choices and facilitates child-led learning through play.

As a statutory requirement we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum, covering the seven areas of learning and development:

  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design

For further information about the EYFS, please take a look at the following documents:


All Saints’ Nursery operates term time only Monday to Friday.  We offer flexible mix and match sessions to suit your needs.  15- or 30-hours funding per week is available for eligible 2-year-olds and all 3- & 4-year-olds.

Healthy Snacks – Healthy snacks are offered in the morning and afternoon, but children must bring their own packed lunch. Fresh drinking water is available at all times.

Our Daily Routine – A similar routine is followed every day to give the children a feeling of stability and security, but we have a flexible approach as needs arise. Our focus is to develop a range of social, life and self-help skills. Activities such as circle times, shared mealtimes, dressing skills and personal hygiene support this. Knowledge is enhanced through purposeful play and a wide variety of learning opportunities. These include: mark-making, construction, stories, puppets, sand, water, imaginative play, ICT, numeracy, scientific experiments, music and physical activities.  We also enjoy a weekly visit from our friends at FootyTotz, which the children love.

The Nursery has safe outdoor facilities, which are used in all weathers, encouraging play and learning to take place outdoors.

We communicate to parents on a daily basis, both verbally and through a written diary.

The Nursery has strong links with All Saints’ C of E Primary School, further details of which can be found by clicking here.
