About us

A Vibrant Learning Environment

Squirrels Children’s Day Nursery is an independent organisation operating under Squirrels Middleton Ltd. We are registered to provide childcare in non-domestic premises and are conveniently located in Middleton. The service is rated Good by Ofsted (Sept 2017). We are based in a converted 19th century Baptist Church which has been carefully converted to form a unique and engaging early years setting. We welcome babies and children aged from 3 months to 4 years and, unlike many settings, are able to offer individual rooms and facilities for each age group. We have a dedicated Baby unit (0-1 years old), Tots room (1-2 years old), Tweenies room (2-3 years old) and Pre-school room (3-4 years old) in addition to large shared spaces.


Our team

We strive to make learning fascinating, engaging and enjoyable by helping every child to be the very best that they can be in a caring and supportive environment. We invest in our staff as well as the children we support - taking forward continuous professional development of our early years educators - to make sure that we consistently strive to be the best setting for each child.
