Playdor Nursery Higher Walton


For 30 years Playdor in Higher Walton was known as Carr Manor nursery. This is in fact where Lucy, one of the owners, began her childcare career at 20 years old and 10 years later she came back to this nursery that held very fond memories of staff, parents and children and bought it in December 2016.

The nursery is set to undergo a refurbishment similar to that at the Chorley site to ensure the environment both indoors and outdoors is of the highest standard possible to encourage quality teaching, learning and child development.

Our Staff

All of our staff members are fully qualified from Level 3 up to Level 5 or are working towards these qualifications. They have all gained safeguarding and first aid qualifications to ensure your children are safe and well cared for at all times.

The majority of our Playdor team have been a part of the setting for many years and continue to ensure high quality education for all your children. Sharon manages Playdor Higher Walton and has done so for 14 years! It is safe to say she is the glue that holds the nursery together for all children, families and staff. Sharon is caring, understanding and instills love and kindness into the nursery for all who walk through our doors.
