Our Nursery

Outdoor Fun

Outdoor Fun

Dryden Street Nursery is located within the University of Manchester campus. Ideally located for staff and students at the University with convenient links to public transport and only just a short drive away from the motorway network giving easy access to Greater Manchester and beyond. We have ample space for parking allowing easy drop off and collection.

Playrooms & Gardens

Standing in its own secure gardens our nursery is housed in a purpose built property offering bright and spacious individual rooms for each age group. Each playroom is carefully planned and resourced to create attractive and appealing learning environments where children can grow and flourish.

Early Years Care & Education

Dryden Street Nursery has been an established and trusted early education centre for many years.  Children are cared for by an enthusiastic, skilled and experienced team of childcare practitioners who plan learning experiences to meet the needs of each individual child.

There is a lively and energetic buzz to the playrooms where children enjoy an extensive range of learning opportunities with staff committed to creating an atmosphere of care, respect, learning and fun.

Additional Learning Opportunities

Our nursery is dedicated to providing a variety of learning opportunities for our pre-school children and so we offer heuristic play, Footy Tots and music lessons.
