Ellanday Day Nurseries Chorley and Horwich

Ellanday Nurseries Ltd has been established by the managers of Pipers Day Nursery in Chorley and Moorlands Day Nursery in Horwich.

These nurseries were purchased in December 2012 by the existing managers who are passionate about children and developing the best childcare provision in the area.

Ellanday Nurseries are committed to providing the highest quality care and education for children aged 0 to 5 years.

We appreciate that the early years of a child’s life are of paramount importance. Through a stimulating and exciting environment, opportunities for children to reach their full potential are nurtured by qualified, experienced and dedicated team of staff.

At Ellanday our vision is for all children to reach their full potential. We do this by

Opening times:

Both Nurseries open 7.30am – 6pm Monday to Friday and offer a variety of sessions.

Full day: 7.30am – 6pm

Morning sessions: 7.30am – 1pm

Afternoon sessions: 1pm – 6pm

However we will always endeavour to be flexible in meeting your family’s needs if you require different hours.
