A brand new purpose-built one-of-a-kind children’s day nursery is due to open its doors on 1st November 2014 in the village of Over Peover, just outside of Knutsford.
Local brothers, Michael and Andrew Irlam, have embarked on this exciting venture together after identifying the need for a high-quality childcare setting to provide for the village and surrounding vicinity. The nursery will cater for children from birth to the age of 5.
Farm building specially converted
The building is a complete conversion of an old disused farm building which is surrounded by ample landscaping; providing the perfect location for a sizable nursery and space to create an impressive outdoor area.
The children will also have access to a natural woodland area and a petting zoo with different animal friends coming to visit on a daily basis.
Andrew says, “It was the perfect opportunity to add another dimension to the village. It is the ideal setting for a childcare facility in the countryside; where we can provide a gateway to the great outdoors – a place where children can grow, learn and thrive in a unique setting.”
Putting a team together
Andrew, together with brother Michael, have been local to Over Peover since they were born. They have appointed Becky Bugg to be the Nursery Manager of Kids’ Country. Becky is a fully qualified and experienced Nursery Manager and has worked with children for over a decade.
Becky says, “I am absolutely thrilled to be on board and I am really looking forward to this exciting adventure. Childcare is my passion and I am feeling very privileged to be playing such a huge part in the set-up of Kids’ Country.”
Making headway with construction
The construction work is currently underway and behind the scenes, the team are making big plans for the learning environments including the outdoor space.
Michael says, “Kids’ Country will have some inspiring unique aspects that children and parents alike will love. We are putting a huge emphasis on outdoor play. Children will also have direct access onto their own age/stage appropriate play area adjacent to their playrooms which will also be kitted out with stimulating resources and equipment.”
