Each of our nursery rooms are tailored to suit each age group, ensuring that your little one receives the attention and activities that cater to their specific needs. From interactive play to educational exploration, we create an atmosphere where curiosity is sparked, and learning is a joyous adventure.

With a large outdoor area that provides endless opportunities, children can embark on safe adventures that nurture confidence and independence. We believe that the outdoors is a classroom without walls, where children can learn, play, and develop essential life skills in a fun and secure environment.

    The team at Brookbank are fantastic, welcoming and so caring. They always give time to get to know the children as individuals and are happy to discuss and feedback anything which will support their development or care. Daily diary’s, noticeboards, regular email newsletters, open evenings and parents evenings also allow me to be kept up to date with what’s happening.
    My little girl is currently at the nursery (she’s 15 months old), it’s so reassuring to see that she’s happy to be dropped off and wave me goodbye (!) She’s always been happily playing or engrossed in an activity when I return to collect her. The outdoor space is beautiful and stimulating and the same is true inside – room layouts, toys and activities have all been thoughtfully planned out for the children.
    My son also went to Brookbank from the age of 12 months to 4 years old (2013 – 2016) and the pre-school setting and activities were excellent at building his confidence, knowledge and skills ready to start primary school.

    Staff are great caring for my son, for ages he would be upset when getting dropped off in the morning but the staff always tried their best to comfort him, I would feel comfortable knowing my son would calm down and be well cared for.
    They are flexible with regards to the days my son goes in and as a shift worker, my days working are different every week. The nursery is excellent at allowing me to be flexible with the days he goes in. The staff know my son as an individual and that’s so important to me.

    My daughter has attended this nursery since she was 5 months old and is now 2 and a half, she loves it!! I know she is safe and developing well, thank you to the manager and the team.
    She is keen to play with her friends and is always smiling when I pick her up.

    This nursery is fantastic. The staff are absolutely brilliant and look after the children like they are their own. My daughter went here full time from being 6 months old – that was 10 years ago and now my son has attended since he was 6 months, he is nearly 2.
    The meals are varied and home cooked, and will offer an alternative if necessary! Nappies, creams, sun cream etc. all included – to suit your individual child. About 80% of the staff are still here 10 years later – including the manager, cook and Spanish teacher along with many of the key workers who are amazing with the children. Can’t fault this nursery at all. It is as Ofsted rate it -OUTSTANDING!

    The staff at Brookbank have been very attentive and wonderful with both our children.
    The staff always keep you informed and the day sheets mean that even when you’re in a rush you always know what has happened throughout the day. The caring staff here always want to know what your child has been up to and they really push the learning and development of your little one through lots of varied activities.

    My daughter has been going to Brookbank for nearly three years and absolutely loves it! Every member of staff that have worked with my daughter over the last three years have been brilliant with her.
    She has come on so much since being in the preschool class and loves learning. The management is so helpful as well. I wouldn’t want my daughter going anywhere else until she goes to big school.

    My daughter has recently started at this nursery in the baby room, she has settled really well with fantastic support from her keyworker and other staff. She has already done lots of ‘firsts’ when it comes to activities and seeing pictures of her happily playing, really brightens my day. I have seen a huge difference in her already and her excitement as we enter the nursery says it all!

    I could not wish for a more caring, supportive and inclusive nursery. Both of my children have happily attended Treetops Brookbank Nursery for four years, and I would recommend them to everyone. I do not have close family members who live near to me, so the advice, reassurance and assistance above and beyond that the staff at the nursery have offered, has really been appreciated.

    Both my children have attended Treetops Brookbank Hyde. My son left to start reception in September. He started at the age of nine months till four years old, and from start to finish been a truly fantastic team. From old staff to new, I couldn’t have wished for better care and support through his journey at nursery. My little girl started at nine months also and still attends (two and half years old she is) she loves everything about nursery especially the staff. When she leaves I will miss the place and the friendly faces and chats. God bless you all and from the bottom of my heart thank you again.

    Treetops Brookbank is a lovely nursery, where the staff go above and beyond. My eldest went here 8 years ago and now my 3-year-old attends, she loves going into nursery and loves all the staff. I love picking her up at the end of the day to hear all about all the new things she has learnt and how much fun she has had. Each day she attends she always seems to have done a different activity. She enjoys meals times and seems to try different things that she wouldn’t try at home. The staff really do make a difference at this nursery and make it a safe, fun environment to leave your child. Although we have not been able to enter nursery for a while, I feel well informed when I collect my daughter and enjoy seeing on the app what she has got up to.

    Our little boy started this nursery in September 2020, he was just about to turn 2 and wasn’t talking, with covid he had no interaction with other children and was behind on certain aspects of his development. We viewed a couple of nurseries but as soon as we were shown around by a staff member, we knew this was the right one, she was so passionate about the nursery and the children and you could tell she absolutely loved her job. The outdoor play area was also a factor in choosing.
    Our son has come on so much since being there, his social awareness and development have changed, and we know he is not far now from talking and this is down to the help and support from all the staff, they are amazing and really help and look after the children, the activities they do and work they put in is fab.
    We couldn’t fault this nursery one bit and my son loves all the ladies who look after him.

    The staff all know my son well and are friendly, kind and positive. We get great updates and photos through the app daily. He is happy to go to nursery and engage with activities and the other children.

    I can’t fault anything about this nursery. Our child has been here from 11 months old, now 3.5 years and will be staying until 5 years old.
    Our child has been identified as having SEN and the nursery has gone above and beyond for our child and supporting us as parents to get the best start for them.
    Our child has come on leaps and bounds as our child is supported to be confident in themselves. We can’t thank the staff enough for their genuine care and commitment to getting the best for our little one.
    We phone up often to check our little one is ok. We have regular meetings to check on progress and were never made to feel like we’re too much as parents.
    SENCO is absolutely fantastic and the whole management team complements each other fantastically. They really work as a team and it shines through.
    We were particularly impressed with safeguarding procedures and documentation for injuries etc. it really reinforces that our child is safe whilst at nursery.
    Can’t thank the staff enough.

    Ever since my son has started nursery he was very unsettled as he had never been away from me, but the staff at Busy Bees, Manchester Hyde have gone beyond and helped him settle in so well and he has made a massive improvement. I can’t thank them enough, he is now a very confident and happy boy. I love to receive pictures of him doing various activities, learning and playing with his little friends.

    Busy Bees, Manchester Hyde is a fantastic nursery. The staff are professional, attentive and friendly. I have recently recommended this nursery to a close friend for her 7-month-old baby as my experience with my son since attending has been very positive.

    Such a fantastic nursery. My son has been here since he was very young and always comes home bouncing to tell me how his day has been. Highly recommend this nursery as the staff are absolutely amazing and go above and beyond to ensure my son’s health needs are taken care of.

    Honestly, there would never be enough words to describe this nursery and the staff! My 16-month-old daughter attends the baby room at this nursery and is absolutely thriving, she is deaf, and staff go above and beyond to learn signs and focus on her communication, so she doesn’t fall behind. Nothing is ever too much for the staff, and when she was diagnosed with a milk allergy, they were quick to put her on the allergy register and have a designated staff member to sit with her at meal times. The parent app is also brilliant for seeing what she’s been up to through the day when her nappy was changed, what she’s eaten, how long she’s slept and pictures throughout the day of what she’s doing! If you’re looking for a nursery, I highly recommend you go and have a look around this one – the garden alone is wow!

    My child started at Busy Bees, Hyde at 12 months old. He is now in preschool there, and will attend until going to school in September. It has been quite a journey. He was identified as having additional needs at around 2 years old and the nursery staff have supported us all the way. They have indulged his special interests, adapted some of their routines to suit him and have helped maintain the happy little boy he’s always been. The whole family will miss Busy Bees when the time comes.

    Our son has attended since 2020 and having a previous experience at another nursery, we were blown away by Manchester Hyde. The activities and environments available are amazing and our son is always talking about things he has learnt. The parent partnership is amazing and we are regularly updated on the app with staff always planning new things. Would highly recommend.
