Manchester Road

The staff have been amazing, they have welcomed Coen back with open arms and despite the changes to the way things work it hasn’t made any difference to Coen’s experience at nursery. Coen has absolutely loved being back at nursery. The girls in his room have been so professional and have made me feel so comfortable that they are as always loving the children and cuddling them when they need it. The staff have been amazing at exchanging information with me about Coen and ensuring his safety and wellbeing has been at the forefront of everything they do. Coen has settled back into nursery very quickly and is extremely happy to come in, it’s like he has never been away and that’s testament to how well the staff have adapted and continued to provide an extremely high quality of care for the children.


When I first put Jack into nursery it was one of the hardest things I had to do has a new mum.   You don’t want to leave them; especially with strangers. From the first day I left Jack I was completely happy with the commitment and care of all the girls at Kidzrus that Jack received and still does. Jack seemed to make a bond with Sally, which made it easier to leave him knowing he’s happy and content with a member of staff. I would highly recommend the nursery – all the girls are welcoming friendly and caring. Jack seems so happy and I am more comfortable in leaving him with the girls. Jack’s becoming a more happy, funny little boy and I want to say a massive thank you to you all. And having the app to check how he’s doing is brilliant.


Leo has settled in really well considering he had been at home with us solely for 11 weeks due to lockdown. He quickly went from getting upset when we left him, to being ready to be passed over at the door without much fuss. This is down to Sally, Anna and the other nursery staff who he obviously feels very comfortable with. We love receiving the pictures of Leo enjoying himself at nursery. He seems to eat and sleep really well and we’re really pleased with how Leo has settled. Thank you so much for making him so welcome.

We don’t view Kidzrus as a corporate nursery business – We view it like extended family.  Many of the same girls who cared for our daughter years ago are now caring for her brother and that speaks volumes about how well your staff are cherished that they want to remain employed at your nursery.   In a situation where we are all still dealing with ‘the unknown’ surrounding lockdown, COVID-19, work, health etc; I cannot put into words how wonderful it has been to be able to send our son back to nursery and know without a shadow of a doubt he is well-cared for, entertained, educated and above all, safe.    This whole situation has been very new for everyone, but KidzRUs has not given myself or my husband any reason at all to think you are not prepared or unable to cope with the changing environment we find ourselves in. The girls have been fabulous every step of the way. Our son always leaves nursery as happy as can be, and we love to see the photos added to the Famly app so we can see what he is getting up to.  We are so happy our son has returned to nursery following lockdown with such a smooth transition and while we may not know what the future holds post-coronavirus, we feel reassured not to have any worries regarding him attending KidzRUs nursery.

My little girl started at Manchester Rd nursery and I was very anxious sending her due to not having any time apart from her due to covid, my daughter was very upset on her settling days due to being away from me and not being around other children and adults, however all the staff in the baby room have made her feel so settled and welcomed she has now settled so well. She loves going to nursery!! A special thank you to all the amazing staff there for settling my girl so well and caring for her while she is there so much. I want to say a special thank you to Sally she always goes above and beyond to let me know how she is doing throughout they day and sending me pictures. Thank you to everybody.

My son has attended the forest school at Manchester road nursery several times during half term.He can be quite shy but was welcomed by the lovely staff into a friendly, homely setting and instantly felt settled.He absolutely loved the outdoor garden space they have and being able to help look after chickens!! Feeding them and collecting their eggs in the morning. He was also kept busy with fun activities and new experiences such as making hot chocolate on the camp fire (fully supervised of course by the forest school leader) I also received photos via their app of all the fun he was having which were lovely to receive.He can’t wait to visit again!

My eldest daughter attended KidzRUs Nursery Manchester Road in Swinton for several years and after my son was born, there was absolutely no question as to where he would be attending nursery. KidzRUs has impressed us from day one. From our initial telephone call enquiring about the nursery, we were invited to have a tour and encouraged to attend at any time. Considering our very first visit was unannounced, the nursery made a positive lasting impression. From then on, all steps were clearly communicated and handled by the staff with friendly and approachable professionalism from completing registration to the first ‘settling in’ sessions. My husband and I have found the staff to be so welcoming and open. It is so reassuring to know our children are in the care of some talented girls. Their patience and caring attitudes come across in every interaction.

We feel very proud of the efforts the nursery has made to involve the local community, especially during COVID-19 lockdowns when the nursery arranged for an afternoon tea package to be sent to nominated members of the local community and how the nursery celebrates from different cultures inclusively whether it be Chinese New Year, Christmas or Eid. Before COVID restrictions were imposed, they made trips to the local nursing home to visit the residents which is going above and beyond what is expected of a nursery really.

The setting at Manchester Road has been updated a lot over the years and especially recently with the addition of Forest Preschool which my son currently attends. This has helped him progress in such a different way; he’s not afraid to tackle physical obstacles with climbing, he loves to identify trees, flowers and wildlife and learning about the safety of being outdoors. He gets to experience things at Forest School that we, as full time working parents, would not necessarily have the chance to expose him to in our home life such as the fire pit, feeding the chickens and the mud kitchen.

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend KidzRUs Nursery & Forest School to anyone. The nursery has great management and staff and feels like an extended family. There’s a million more good things I could write about this wonderful setting but I would run out of space. My children have been happy, content and so well cared for at KidzRUs Nursery & Forest School which is what matters most as a parent. The memories being made here will last a lifetime for me and my children.

(Best wishes, Marie & Stuart)
