Children and Families Trafford Directory

As an early year’s setting, we are very closely linked into Trafford, our Local Education Authority, seeking advice and support from them on a range of areas, as and when necessary.

But, did you know that you, as parents, can also access help and information on any aspect of family life, from health & wellbeing, to keeping safe, or simply finding out what’s on in the local area, via a dedicated Children and Families Trafford Directory, which can be accessed by clicking on this link.

You will also find help, information and details about support services across a whole range of areas, and how you can seek help if your child is disabled or you are concerned that they might have a special educational need. For more information on Trafford’s SEND Local Offer, please follow this link.

If you want to know more, or have any questions or queries then please do get in touch with Lesley, our Juice Nursery Manager at or Danielle our SENCo on

World Nursery Rhyme Week

We LOVE LOVE LOVE nursery rhymes here at Juice Nursery and as such have had a great time taking part in this year’s World Nursery Rhyme Week, sponsored by Music Bugs.

As well as being great fun to sing or say, they play an important part as building blocks in children’s speech and literacy development. The simple words, catchy tunes and repetitive patterns make rhyming easy to remember, fun and interesting, so they stick in children’s minds. As well as many educational benefits there are other artistic and social benefits too… for more information just click on this link.

Here’s to the next 10 years!

As you may already know, here at Juice Nursery, we have been celebrating our 10th anniversary since opening, and what a 10 years it has been!

It has been a lot of hard work but we are extremely proud of our nursery, the service that we provide to the families that entrust their children to us – which we believe to be truly Outstanding – and most of all to our team of staff, without whom none of this would be possible.

We believe that our continued success can, in no small part, be attributed to having such a strong team of dedicated and motivated staff, who have a passion for what they do, and are keen to grow and develop with us, as the nursery continues to evolve.

In an ever changing world, we are very proud that a good number of our staff, who joined the team at the very beginning, are still with us – including our Nursery Manager, Lesley Wilson, pictured here with Julie Round and Kim Starkie, who were also amongst the original team all those years ago. So, as we look back over the past 10 years and look forward to the next, we want to say a massive thank you to all our hardworking members of staff, who work hard every day to ensure that we are the best that we can be.

First Aid – Parent Workshop

As part of our Millie’s Mark commitment to help highlight the importance of as many people as possible having some basic first aid skills and knowledge, we were delighted that so many of our Juice Nursery parents were able to join us at our First Aid for Parents Workshop.

The course was run by Paul Green from First Responder to cover some basics of what to do if faced with a first aid emergency situation, so that effective emergency treatment can be given before professional help arrive, which can go a long way to reducing the effects of illness and injury and indeed save a life.

The evening proved very popular and we hope to organise further such workshops in due course.

Big 10th Birthday Bash!

We cannot quite believe it, but this month marks the 10th anniversary since Juice Nursery first opened it doors!

To mark this most special of occasions, we invited all our current children, parents and staff to join us at The Bowdon Parish Centre for our Big 10th Birthday Bash for an afternoon of family fun!

We had a little help from our friends at Stretch-n-Grow, Caroline and Kathy, who came along to put us all through our paces (which meant we had definately earnt our birthday cake!) and Milena from Mess Around Cheshire, who created a room full of messy activities all with a birthday theme, for the children to enjoy!

Safe to say we all had a fabulous time…. and here’s next 10 years!!!

Toddle Waddle for Francis House

Juice Nursery were out in force today, with over 50 children, together with parents and staff taking part in our sponsored walk, which took us through Altrincham and around Stamford Park, to raise funds for Francis House Children’s Hospice.

We raised a most marvellous £323 for this fabulous charity, so a BIG thank you to all those of you who supported us! :)
