Kids Planet Salford Quays is located in Exchange Quay, close to Media City and The Lowry.


Kids Planet Salford Quays opened in November 2016 and benefits from a state of the art sensory room and separate allotment area within the garden. We have strong community links with local organisations including Salford Women’s Aid.


Each child is treated as an individual and receives care tailored to their needs. On joining our nursery, each child is assigned a Key Person who takes responsibility for their care, ensuring that their transition into nursery is as smooth as possible.

Early years foundation stage

Our nursery follows the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), which is the government framework for children aged 0-5. All our children enjoy a self-generated learning programme with individual developmental goals in mind.

The rooms in our nursery are colourful, well-resourced and divided by age group:
