Our History

Didsbury Village Day Nursery was established in 1995 by Sheila and Richard Seed. After 17 years of experience teaching early years age groups in schools as a B.Ed. professional, Sheila was not satisfied with the quality of childcare available in the area and so set out to create a nursery with standards so high that she herself would be happy to leave her own child there. This is the underlying principle upon which the nursery was built and has remained.

The nursery's standards have remained consistently high and achieved the highest possible Ofsted grades across all areas of assessment and the highest NDNA Quality Assurance level attainable, which are rare accolades. Genuine childcare of the highest quality has always been at our core, and word-of-mouth reputation has always ensured that over the years, not only has the nursery cared for many children from the local area, but also resulted in parents wanting to bring their children here from much further afield.

Despite the nursery's ongoing success, we have chosen to remain small, rather than develop into a chain, in order to maintain the quality care and personal relationships that help to define us. Please read Our Philosophy for more information about what is important to us as childcare providers.
