Book a Viewing


Please contact us to arrange a tour and we will give you a registration pack.

As we cannot always guarantee a place being available it is therefore advantageous to reserve a place as early as possible - in particular 'Baby Places'. To reserve a place it is necessary for you to go through the registration and admission procedures. 

We always endeavour to accommodate siblings, however again please inform us as soon as possible and register the place required with us. Siblings will be offered a discount of 10% when taking up a full time place.

Unlike many nurseries we do offer term time only places and we charge the same rates as our normal rates - great for teachers and teaching assistants. We do this as we know of the difficulties and expense forced upon parents who work in education. Please Note: Term-Time places are limited.

Also, unlike many Salford nurseries, we do not put a cap on funded places and we don't turn away parents who need 30 hour places.

Tax-Free Childcare Scheme, Child-care Vouchers, Tax Credits and Universal Tax Credits

Little Explorers Nursery is registered with ALL agencies who provide payment vouchers for child-care via employers which provides a means of tax relief against child-care fees. Parents need to provide the nursery registration details to the agency that their employer uses to enable part payment by this method. Information about the various voucher agencies that the nursery is registered with can be obtained from the nursery manager. Please note that payment via this method is still due on your fee due date and voucher payments received late will be charged for. Parents whose children attend Little Explorers Nursery can claim Child-care Tax Credit against their fees. They need to inform the Inland Revenue of their new child-care costs each time they change.
