About Fledglings

Julie Longbottom

Fledglings Pre-school and Day Nursery opened in September 1993 and is personally managed by the original owner.

Mrs Julie Longbottom
NNEB, B.A.(Hons) Early Years Management.   

Fledglings Pre-school and Nursery provides a loving and caring environment for young children and offers a warm welcome to children aged 9 months to 5 years.

We appreciate that so many things are important when considering your child’s welfare, particularly when leaving your child in the care of someone else. Our aim is to make your child’s day as much fun as possible, by filling each day with a choice of activities, with the chance to play and learn, supported and encouraged by our qualified experienced caring staff.

We are committed to providing equality of opportunity for all. We believe that all people are of equal worth, whatever their race, culture, gender, ability or religion and we respect and value these differences.

Initially, access to Fledglings is through the main school gate at Moss Hey Primary School, then please follow the fenced pathway around to our entrance. On arrival at the nursery access into the nursery is controlled by staff, therefore only authorised people can gain entry or leave the premises.

Ofsted Outstanding

Fledglings are delighted to have been judged as an ‘Outstanding’ nursery by Ofsted.  We have always striven to provide a high quality, high value service and the Ofsted report demonstrates our on-going commitment to this.
