Kids Planet Eccles, formerly Nutkins Nursery, is a nursery located close to Eccles town centre. We are easily accessible and offer great flexibility for parents travelling to work locally, and to the City Centre.


Kids Planet Eccles was established in 1999, the nursery offers high quality childcare for children aged 0-5 years to suit parent’s individual needs. We understand the stresses of childcare and our aim is to make life easy for the parents by offering flexible, all inclusive childcare that caters for all children’s needs.

Each child within the nursery will have a key person, who will ensure that their individual needs are met by our fully qualified team of caring staff. We pride ourselves on providing a happy and safe environment where children feel both special and unique.


Our aim is to provide the very best nurturing Early Years education and care for each and every child.

We use the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) as a framework to encourage purposeful plays and lots of hands-on-activities to promote individual learning.

Our aim is to create a strong partnership with the children, parents / carers and nursery who work together to inspire your world.
