Enrol with Carr Manor Nursery


  • Excellent nursery, can not recommend it enough. Such caring staff, brilliant indoor and outdoor areas and the children are always up to something fun, creative and educational. Both my children love it.

  • Our little boy has been going to Carr Manor since he was 1 and the last 2 years have been wonderful! the staff are so kind and really get to know the kids, I love the fact that it's a small nursery and feels like a little family.

  • Both my children have attended Carr Manor and I can’t recommend it enough. The staff are fantastic and have been very accommodating of changes we have had to make over the years and always help wherever they can. My daughter loves the new outdoor space and changes to the nursery. The new measures in place for COVID 19 have been very reassuring and the staff have been very understanding of parents anxieties.
