Squirrels Day Nursery Middleton

Early Years Nursery from 3 months - 5 Years

Operating as usual


Lots of places during half term to take your little ones out for lunch ❤️

Half terms about to begin. Please don't struggle to feed your kiddies.
We also work along side an amazing lady called Deborah Jones from food4thought who has end less lists of places that supply meals food parcels and so much more support wise. I will ask her to comment so people can refer themselves direct for support. No child should go to bed at night with an empty tummy. There's help available. God bless x


Half-term fun at Rochdale Central Library! Make your way to our brand new Junior Library on Monday 19th February, 10am till 12noon.

Enjoy a captivating storytelling session, experience the excitement of getting your face painted, and be entertained by a Children’s Entertainer.

There is no need to book. Just drop in.

Don't miss out on this fantastic opportunity for fun and adventure!
