About Us

Mere Day Nursery is one of our family-run group of six nurseries and has already become somewhere very special for young children. Our team believe in relationships first and foremost and from the moment you arrive to visit until the day comes for you to leave your child in our care and every day after that, you will experience first hand the care, security, trust and warmth that is central to our culture and ethos.

The indoor space at nursery has been lovingly restored and refurbished to provide an exceptional early childhood environment that reflects just how young children play and learn and with the nursery set in acres of beautiful leafy surroundings and wooded area, we make sure children enjoy the best of outdoor play that is rich in experience for all ages.

The nursery sits on one of the busiest commuter routes in Cheshire. It is perfectly located for parents living locally or travelling to or from Manchester via the A556 or to Warrington via the A50.

Our little girl has been going here since she was 12 months old, right in the middle of Covid times. The staff settled her in gently and she quickly adapted to going here. She absolutely loves nursery, the staff are friendly and you can tell they care about each individual child. The management are efficient and knowledgable, and the whole place runs smoothly with a focus on the latest Early Years practice. As a teacher & senior leader in primary school, I spent a lot of time researching local nurseries for my daughter, and this one is definitely of the highest quality.

This nursery is amazing. My daughter has been going here full time for 5 months now and in all that time she has never once cried when I’ve dropped her off or picked her up. The nursery staff are wonderful. They look after my daughter so so well and it really feels like they genuinely care for all of the kids.
