Private Nursery and Preschool in Crumpsall, Manchester



Happy Tots is an Ofsted accredited private nursery in Manchester, which, since 1993, has remained dedicated to providing an outstanding quality of day care and education for children from birth up to the age of 5.


Our nursery in the Manchester  area,  located in Crumpsall. Our carefully designed nursery ensures that your  child  receives  the  best  possible  education  and  day   care  in Manchester.   Your  child’s   preschool   education  is  structured   and balanced to meet the individual needs of each child.


If  you  are  like most parents,  you want your child to be educated in an environment  where  their   intellectual  abilities  and  self-esteem  grow hand-in-hand, where imagination  and curiosity are cultivated and where they  learn  to  respect  a  wide  range  of cultures  and people. We hold equality and diversity in very high regard. 


Security – We have in place outdoor CCTV and a buzzer system at our private nursery: that staff monitor only allowing parents and staff entry to the building.


Our aims at Happy Tots Nursery are based upon the belief that a good quality Preschool nursery can fulfil a vital role in the development of children under the age of five. We strive to provide opportunities that will guide and assist the children in all areas of their development.

We aim to prepare children for school life, both educationally and socially. We encourage independence and an ability to deal with new and challenging situations.

Our educational programme is designed in conjunction with the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework.

As a registered nursery we are bound under the Children’s Act to ensure that the children in our care are safe and protected. The welfare of children is of paramount importance.


At Happy Tots, we build our routines, planning and activities around the EYFS. The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is a play based framework acknowledging that every child is unique and that they learn and develop at different rates and in different ways. We ensure that each child has a key person to help them to develop, socialise and most importantly have fun whist at Happy Tots Nursery.


“The aim of the EYFS is to support schools, nurseries and child minders to make sure that children from all back grounds have the same opportunities and life chances as the most advantaged”

 The EYFS is based on four themes


A Unique Child 
Every child is a competent learner from birth who can be resilient, capable and self assured.


Positive Relationships 
Children learn to be strong and independent from a base of loving and secure relationships with parents/ carers.


Enabling environments 
The  environment  plays  a  key  role  in  supporting  a  child’s development.


Learning and Development 
Children learn and develop in different ways and at different rates. Areas of learning are equally important and interconnected.
