Tiddlywinks Day Nursery was founded by husband and wife, Imelda & David Mihell in the Summer of 1994 and the company officially opened their doors the same year.
The long term vision from Imelda started at our Hill Lane nursery in 1994 following on from the conversion of a previous farmhouse where the family had lived. The upstairs of the nursery used to be a flat when the Hill Lane Blackley nursery first opened.
Imelda oversaw the day to day running of the nursery, creating such a warm, welcoming and homely feel as Nursery Manager where the nursery was full of character and charm which the children and families viewed as a home from home.
Over the years Tiddlywinks Day Nursery have steadily expanded from their original 18 place nursery at Hill Lane to their current provision of 7 day nurseries providing daily care for over 700 children and 5 Tiddlywinks Out of School Clubs, providing daily care for over 185 children.
Tiddlywinks growth across Greater Manchester was recognised nationally with awards for their staff teams and the company directors. The expansion of Tiddlywinks Outstanding childcare service with additional sites became a milestone for the family run business, after sons Ashley and Ben joined the company in 2007. Ashley and Ben began working alongside their parents while completing University Studies to achieve their Bachelor Degrees.
