Hi there – I’m Vanessa, the Manager of Welcome Nurseries @ Little Lever.

Welcome to our nursery in Little Lever, Bolton, a warm, welcoming place for children to explore. I hope this is the perfect find for your little one!

Parents choose us because of our proximity to nearby schools, our brilliant staff and our freshly prepared food.

This nursery has a wonderful approach to child and adult led play, with a beautiful outdoor area and plenty of spacious rooms to explore.

Providing childcare for children aged new born to five years and situated in the beautiful town of Little Lever, we are in walking distance of local parks and are well known within the community.

With a bus stop right across the road and road parking off site, we’re accessible for all parents and visitors.

What happens in a day in the life of a Nursery Manager?

What does a normal day involve for you?

I begin early because it is wonderful to be there when the children arrive. Myself and the deputy manager ensure that one of us is present at the start and end of each, in order to chat to the parents and to see the children in and out safely. Each day starts off with breakfast for the little ones, circle time and welcome songs!

We offer a range of activities for the children throughout the day, from sensory play through to phase one letters and language tasks. We also love heading out into the community and attending the park too!

Why do you love your job?

I absolutely love my job because it is something that I am really passionate about. I’ve been in this work for 26 years and I have gained so much wonderful insight during this time.

It really is wonderful to see the children learn, develop and discover new things every single day and I am proud that I get to be a part of that too.

Why do parents love your nursery?

I think the parents love the nursery because of the welcoming and warm atmosphere. We are always told by them just how happy and content they are with sending their children to us. Parents comment on how relaxed and friendly we are as a nursery and this is really great to hear. It is so important to have a great relationship with parents and carers and this is something that I feel we do well.

What are your favourite hobbies outside of work?

Spending time with my wonderful four granddaughters!

How do I book a place for my child?

If you would like to book a place for your child, please fill out the enquiry form, we will then get in touch with you to discuss your interest further.

Are all staff DBS (CRB/police) checked and first aid trained?

All our staff have an enhanced DBS check, this is our way of ensuring quality and safety in our team. All our staff are also paediatric first aid trained and fully aware of the correct action to take in an emergency. We understand that safety is your primary concern – it is ours too.

My child has special educational needs, can they still attend?

Yes, we are happy to discuss any specific requirements you might have regarding SENDCo for your child, working to provide the best possible experience for your little one. We follow the layout of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), a government approved structure for the development and learning of all children aged newborn to five years. Along these lines, we deliver a full range of activities for your little ones, aimed at boosting their communication and aiding them in new discoveries daily. 


I can’t praise this nursery enough. Both of my children have been here and the staff are just absolutely fantastic. They make huge efforts to keep parents involved, always make themselves available and do so much with the children. My two have been so happy here, it really is the best place.


My son loved his time here! All of the staff are really lovely especially the pre school ladies and he settled in really quickly. I would recommend this nursery to anyone -a nurturing environment where children thrive.


Literally can’t thank this nursery enough! They are amazing people inside and out, my girl has loved every moment here.


A great nursery with great staff, i cant recommend them enough.


Absolutely fantastic nursery! The staff are amazing. A massive thank you to all the staff who have brought my son on so much.


My daughter absolutely loves going here. Her speech and behaviour have come on a treat and the staff are all lovely.


From my first meeting with staff I knew that this was the right nursery for our girls. They were made to feel welcome from the start and settled in very quickly. They’ve been here for almost 2 years now and still look forward to attending every day. Nothing we ask is ever too much and we are kept fully informed of their progress and daily activities and are also encouraged to play an active part in their action planning. The nursery surroundings are always very clean, the food is excellent  and there is a consistent and very high level of detail towards all aspects of health and safety All of the staff are approachable and friendly and have formed loving and caring relationships with our girls. I would without a doubt recommend this nursery!


Our daughter started at Gigglers Nursery when she was nine months old. She started in the baby room and has progressed up and into the Toddler Room. From our initial tour of the building, to the current day (in a national lockdown) we continue to be impressed with how the nursery operates in all aspects. We are provided on a daily basis with information relating to her day and activities she has done (quite often with either photographs of her doing said activity, or with her bringing her projects home with her), to what she has eaten throughout the day, and information relating to her naps and her general demeanour. We are always notified immediately if she has become unwell.

The team are fantastic. We have never experienced any problems with any member of staff and we always feel welcome when at the nursery. More importantly, we feel like our daughter is genuinely liked by the staff and they always welcome her every morning with a smile and open arms. The nursery has a “family feel” about it and it feels like a small family who work well together and with the children, despite it obviously not being. Our daughter is quite advanced for her age, in particular with her language, and we put this down in the great part to nursery and the activities done with her on a day to day basis. The team are clearly dedicated to ensuring children from babies through to pre-school children are equipped with the necessary tools and skills for moving on. We couldn’t recommend the nursery highly enough!
