WMB Cornerstone Day Nursery Harpurhey, M9 5UX




WMB Cornerstone Day Nursery is a branch of WMB Childcare Ltd. It was graded ‘GOOD’ by OFSTED at the settings first inspection in November 2017. The nursery has operational links with sister nursery WMB Carisbrook due to their close proximity. The nursery was opened as a result of the high demand for childcare places at WMB Carisbrook. Cornerstone has since become a force to reckon with within the Harpurhey area and plays a major role in helping the parents and partnering with the schools within the community in relation to afterschool services.


The building was originally a council playgroup known locally as the “Beehive”. This nursery in M9 sits centrally within the famous Harpurhey Park, and its imposing figure within the park meant that it doesn’t go unnoticed for those driving through Fernclough Road and Carisbrook Street. The centre was reopened by WMB Childcare Ltd after it became apparent that that WMB Carisbrook will not be able to contain the number of parents requesting funded places within the Harpurhey community. Our nurseries in Harpurhey are well loved with the M9 and M40 postcodes.

WMB Cornerstone is a purpose-built premise with one large play room fully equipped to accommodate children between the ages of 2-5 and those who attend the afterschool club Harpurhey mostly 5-11. It has a large enclosed outdoor play area. WMB Cornerstone nursery in Harpurhey is a fresh, bright, newly established nursery within the locality, with a fantastic reputation within the Community.
