Reliable quality childcare

We are committed to safeguarding children and enabling them to make safe choices now and in the future.
We instil the passion for
learning in children
Small World Nurseries Ltd was established in 2001 and consists of two nurseries, one based in Rochdale and the other is based in Whitworth.

The nurseries are run by experienced, qualified, friendly established teams.
Each group has their own leader, ensuring the quality of care, experiences and opportunities your child receives are age and stage appropriate for each individual.

We believe that caring for and educating children is a satisfying and enriching task. We are more than just a nursery. We pride ourselves on the love and respect that we provide to each child. We have over 15 years of experience in providing children with the tools and the environment necessary for them to achieve their highest potential and overall development.

    Healthy Eating

    Our meals are provided by the catering company ‘Apetito’.

    They focus on creating delicious meals that children look forward to eating, leaving us to concentrate on everything else.

    After all, we all know how important it is to make sure children have the best possible start in life and how vital good nutrition is in a child’s development. That’s why we believe that introducing a balanced and varied diet is an essential element of the developmental process.

    we cater for all allergies and dietary needs

    Both of our settings currently hold the ‘Gold’ award in the Golden grin scheme.

    A scheme which was designed to encourage healthy eating practices in nursery settings and to help prevent tooth decay, improve nutrition and improve hand hygiene amongst children in their care.

    Both settings also currently hold a level 5 food hygiene score from the local authority ensuring our practices are of the highest level.
