Out of School Care and Holiday Club
We keep busy with lots of games, arts and crafts, exercise and play at our Holiday club. As well as our regular nursery hours, Holyrood Haydock runs a Before and After school Club for children attending Legh Vale Primary School. Our Before School Club runs from 7.45am - 9am and our After School Club runs from 3.30pm - 6pm. Contact us for more information.
Settling in Sessions
Our nursery offers settling in sessions. Parents can bring their child for a couple of hours first, gradually introducing the child to a new environment. Settling in sessions are aimed at helping your child to adapt to their new surroundings and become more familiar with the staff and other children.
Physical Development Stars is a programme that supports children’s movement for a minimum of three hours per day in line with government guidelines. Our practitioners look at ways everyday routines and activities can be adapted to encourage fine and gross motor physical development in a fun way, limiting the time that children are sitting down.
During yoga our children learn different poses and stretches while exploring their imagination. Children learn about physical activity, turn taking and participation while having lots of fun.
Cooking with Chef
Wherever we can we encourage children to partake in preparing their meals at nursery. We love to see children take pride in their culinary creations and enjoy healthy and delicious food.
Our nursery enjoys great ties with our local community and we are often out and about visiting local sights and getting involved in events.
Eco Schools is the largest sustainable schools programme in the world and is designed to encourage action on sustainable development education issues. We love getting involved in Eco Schools projects and learning about how to protect the environment. We are proud to hold the Eco School Green Flag.
We celebrate various festivals and events throughout the year with Christmas shows, Easter Parades and Chinese New Year Celebrations.There's always much excitement in preparing for these as children get involved with learning songs, organising special dress ups and much more.

Sensory rooms are calm and tranquil spaces that support children’s sensory stimulation through stimulating resources. Sensory stimulation – touch, taste, smell, sight and sound – is vital for young children’s brain development as the experiences children instinctively seek help them to make connections that develop their neural pathways over time. Support of children’s sensory experiences from birth has a long-lasting impact on the adults they become.
Taking part in fundraising activities helps children to learn about others that are less fortunate than themselves and understand how we can help them. Fundraising events are good fun and are a great way to get children, families and communities together. Some of the fundraisers we have taken part in are; sponsored toddles, superhero days, baking cakes to sell and garden parties. We currently support a number of charities including Barnados, Children in Need and The Cystic Fibrosis Trust. We visit local care home for a Christmas Carol concert.
In recognition that education begins in the home, we are fully committed to a partnership approach with parents. Parents are kept up to date with monthly newsletters, parent focus groups and parent’s evenings. Parents are also able to keep up to date with activities going on in the nursery by following our group social media accounts; Holyrood Facebook and Holyrood Twitter.
We accept your courier deliveries to make things that little bit easier for busy mums and dads.
