Kids Allowed has announced it is to open the first nursery in TraffordCity.

The multi-award winning nursery group will open a new £1.5 million purpose-built facility in September, expanding its number of nurseries to eight.

The contemporary building, which will be developed by Peel Land and Property, will be situated next to Venus building and will provide care for 106 children from babies to five year olds.

Jennie Johnson MBE, Founder and Chief Executive of Kids Allowed said: “We’re delighted to be opening our eighth nursery at such a fantastic and high profile location. We’ve been working closely with Peel to make our expansion plans a reality and we’re excited to deliver what will be a stunning and sustainable nursery for locals and employees of TraffordCity to benefit from.”

The building will feature Manchester’s first Urbanscape innovative green roof system which will improve the energy efficiency of the building as well as enhance local air quality for children and employees by removing carbon, particulates and heavy metals from the atmosphere.

Paul Chappels, Head of Asset Management for TraffordCity said: “Peel is delighted that the first nursery to open at TraffordCity will be the prestigious Kids Allowed brand. It’s a fantastic addition to the growing portfolio of attractions and businesses opening here and it will be a huge success as demand will be high for spaces. We’re also looking forward to seeing our first green roof at TraffordCity and exciting research opportunities on air quality improvements are already being discussed with the University of Manchester.”

Works are expected to commence very shortly.
