We have often been asked to provide an extra service for parents who just want to drop off their children for a few hours of fun to allow them time to visit the gym, go to a doctor's appointment, do some shopping or just have some Me Time!

Our curriculum encourages children to think, reason, question, experiment and explore. Each child will have a Key Worker as we believe that warm, nurturing relationships are fundamental to meeting the young child's needs.
Here at Wells House we believe that a healthy diet begins the process of a healthy life. As a result, we will introduce ever changing menus to promote healthy eating and drinking. We accommodate children with dietary restrictions whether cultural, religious or medical.

Wells House Kindergarten has been established since 1996. We are located on Ringley Road, Stoneclough, with excellent links to Swinton, Bury, Bolton and access to the M60/M62 and the A580 to Manchester. - See location map.
It is a detached setting with an extensive outside play area for all ages.
The nursery cares for children from birth up to 5 years of age and currently has 5 different units for children to be grouped according to age and development stages. Wells House is an inclusive setting.
We are committed to a child-centred approach to childcare; we actively encourage our children to be outside in the fresh air and participate in vigorous activities as we feel they are essential for the children's well being and fitness. The more children's muscles and senses are exercised, the more the brain will develop its capacity for learning.
The motto of Wells House is “Security, Knowledge and Growth”. With this important statement and the following concepts of Physical, Intellectual, Emotional, and Social (P.I.E.S) development, along with the Early Years Foundation stage, we aim to offer the highest standard of professional and stimulating childcare and pre-school education.
Here are some of the comments Ofsted made about Wells House Kindergarten in their latest report
The experienced and long standing management team are committed and passionate. They have high aspirations for the quality of the nursery. The management team regularly create clear targets to help them improve further.
Since the last inspection, they have forged links with local primary schools and nurseries and together they share good practice.
The environment is highly stimulating. Each area is carefully planned to capture children’s interests and to support their development. For example, older children benefit from a vast range of activities and interesting resources aimed specifically at supporting their literacy skills.
A wealth of information is exchanged between staff and parent’s. Staff offer well targeted support for parent’s to extend children’s learning at home. For example, parents are offered activities and professional advice, such as tips on promoting children’s speech. This contributes to the good progress that children make.
Staff provide a consistent approach to promoting children’s positive behaviour. For instance, staff working with very young children use picture cards to communicate positive messages, such as kind hands. Older children help to create the rules which are displayed in their room. All children’s behaviour is good in relation to their age.
Staff have a good understanding of safeguarding procedures. This is underpinned by effective policies. Consequently, children's safety and well-being is supported
The management team demonstrates a strong commitment to promoting high-quality childcare
Regular training opportunities undertaken by staff ensure qualification levels are high and they are equipped with the skills and knowledge to provide quality care and learning. This has had a positive impact on the learning experiences offered to children, particularly babies
