Nursery | Kindergarten & Preschool

A very warm welcome to Bury Grammar Kindergarten (Preschool and Nursery)!
We welcome children from the term they turn 3 years of age. Our exceptional high standards of provision ensure that children are safe, happy and making excellent progress in readiness for starting school in Reception.
Only the best… We have fully qualified teachers in our nursery! 

Our expert team are well qualified, passionate about childcare, and experienced practitioners. We have teachers and highly qualified Early Years Practitioners working together in our EYFS setting. We strongly believe all children can achieve in an inspirational setting with vast opportunities on offer, and this is what we provide.

Joining our Nursery/Pre School secures an automatic entry into our BGS Reception classes. 

We are part of an age 3 to 18 school and offer an all through education for our pupils. In Kindergarten we nurture children in our Nursery/Pre School setting, in preparation for their first steps into education, and ensure they are ready to join our Reception classes. Our pupils are well prepared for school life, and we support this extremely important educational and pastoral transition into formal education.  Joining our Nursery/Pre School secures an automatic entry into our BGS Reception classes.    

Easy transport links... 

We are located near Bury town centre with easy access to motorway links (M56, M60 and M62) with direct access leading to Greater Manchester. We value inclusivity and welcome all families from near and far, opening from 7.30am to 6pm every day.  

We know our children thrive on being outside and so do we! 

We are a purpose-built nursery/preschool, with a strong ethos of pastoral care and educational excellence. 

We believe in having fun, nurturing critical thinkers, learning by experiences and exploring! Our Early Years Foundation Stage is enhanced with high quality, open ended resources ensuring a natural and well-rounded experience for our youngest learners.  

Our children have the space to explore

Enjoying a spacious 45-acre site with outstanding facilities, including our very own Forest School, swimming pool, playgrounds, playing field, a gymnasium and sports hall, our children have the very best. Our facilities provide the environment for our expert practitioners to fully embrace the wider curriculum on offer. 

Our curriculum is action packed.

We value the importance of a balance of child and practitioner led activities.  We relish the opportunities enquiring minds bring with them and we are skilled at supporting individuals to reach their potential and beyond. 

We foster excellent relationships with our parents from the very beginning of your child’s educational journey.

We believe in strong Home/School partnerships. This is integral to success. Together, we make sure your child is happy and making excellent progress. Our open-door policy for parents means we interact with you daily, continually updating you, and we use an online system to share evidence of learning along with scheduled parents' meetings every term. 

Next steps... 

We are very excited to show you around and discuss your very important next steps. We know children are individuals and their needs are incredibly important. We would love to hear from you and be able to learn more about your child, show you our facilities and explain in person how we can support your child.
