In Nursery and Reception we have a happy, stimulating environment where children feel valued, safe and motivated to learn. Each individual child is at the centre of everything we do.

We are an accredited Communication Friendly School, providing tailored interventions to enable our children to develop their communication skills across all areas of our provision. Alongside this, upon entry children are language assessed using the WellComm framework and planned for accordingly, enabling them to fast-track their communication skills in small structured groups.

Children are supported and challenged in their learning by Objective-Led Planning. Objective-Led Planning enables the children to learn through their areas of  interests without interrupting their play. Our experienced practitioners engage in individual play and enhance the learning and outcomes by knowing where all the individual children are working and their next steps.

Our specialist music teacher from Oldham Council Music Service delivers Tune-In To Talking sessions which develops and enhances many transferable skills including concentration, listening and attention, turn-taking and overall confidence to engage in new situations.

Our bespoke curriculum is linked to specific interests, enabling our children to thrive, reach their full potential and gain a true love of learning.

We have a great time at Holy Family Nursery.


There is always so much to do – We love playing outside on the bikes and the climbing frames. We love baking, painting and cutting and sticking. We really enjoy having fruit and milk together at snack-time.

Our teachers are really good at reading lots of stories to us, playing games with us and teaching us lots of songs and rhymes. Soon you will see lots of photographs of us enjoying ourselves at Nursery on this website.
