Bury Grammar Schools

Kindergarten (Preschool & Nursery)

Who we are... 

A very warm welcome to Bury Grammar Kindergarten (Preschool and Nursery)! We are a friendly preschool setting providing excellent nursery childcare with a purpose. 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.  

Our expert team are well qualified, passionate about childcare and experienced practitioners. We strongly believe all children can achieve in an inspirational setting with vast opportunities on offer, and this is what we provide.  

We are part of a 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 begin 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.    

Where we are... 

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.  

What we stand for...  

We are a purpose-built nursery/preschool, with a strong ethos of pastoral care and educational excellence. Our Early Years Foundation Stage is enhanced with high quality, open ended resources ensuring a natural, holistic and well-rounded experience for our youngest learners. We believe in having fun, nurturing critical thinkers, learning by experiences and exploring! We know our children thrive on being outside and so do we.  

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 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 believe in strong Home/School partnerships. This is absolutely integral to success. We foster excellent relationships with our parents from the very beginning of your child’s educational journey. Together, we make sure your child is happy and making excellent progress. Open Door Policy for parents: We interact on a daily basis, continually update you with an online system providing evidence of learning and have parents' meetings on a termly basis.  

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. Please contact our Admissions Team:
