Kids Start in Northenden

Kids sKStart are a fantastic new business partnership of Joanne Cooper and Shirley Awan, both previously employed by Manchester city council with 20years experience of managing Sure Start nurseries and both worked together with the same passion for high quality child care with children and families at the heart.

When the council made the difficult decision to withdraw childcare from children’s centres they both decided that they just had to continue with their outstanding skills and knowledge. They were delighted to be awarded one of the councils own centres where they had both worked, a fantastic opportunity and are currently training staff who share their vision.

The nursery is set in stunning grounds in Northenden with lots of green space, large oak trees, even a large bike track, so children have opportunity to have indoor/outdoor play and with Joanne’s and Shirley’s extensive training from the council which included early excellence centres they are keen to offer exciting activities that children have enjoyed across generations e.g. den making, planting vegetables, lots of open ended materials e.g. a building yard.

The nursery is large and airy but cozy, the under 2s room is homely with large sofas, sparkly lights and soft fabrics.

We are offering Holiday clubs  with a range of various activities from sports to easter cake making.
