Out and About

Bury is a fantastic town and a lovely place to raise a family.   We spent five years away from the North West through my husband's job, but we moved back home in 2013 to raise our son. 

Blue Button Childcare is located on the outskirts of Bury, in an area known locally as the Seddon's Farm Estate.  Our home is ideally situated to make the most of local area and to explore further afield! 

I have a 7 seater car and I am fully insured with full breakdown cover and I have a clean driving license.  Every child has a size appropriate care seat and they remain rear facing for as long as possible.  

We love getting out and about ! Here are some of the places we go on our adventures so that my mindees have fantastic experiences and extend their learning.  This is part of the EYFS and the Cultural Capital and of course means having lots of fun and making memories!
