We can’t wait for September when our new, purpose-built nursery in Worsley opens! It has a rooftop garden, 7 am to 7 pm opening, as well as brightly coloured rooms with secure outdoor areas providing children with lots of fresh air and outdoor fun.
And, there are loads of family-friendly activities and events taking place outdoors in and around the Worsley area from Boothstown to Monton to Walkden this summer. So, if you’re a new parent in the area or are considering visiting with your little ones, we’ve pulled together just a few highlights from www.onourdoorstep.co.uk to help you keep the whole family entertained. Let us know which ones you enjoy!
