Welcome to Hocus Pocus Day Nursery Bolton


Our core principles

Hocus Pocus is committed to “offering the best care outside the family home”. We do this by prioritising the safety and well-being of children, and developing an open positive partnership with parents and carers. We value diversity and are a multicultural nursery, celebrating all major cultural events, including Christmas, Divali and Eid. Hocus Pocus views parents and carers as a child’s first educators. We have gained a Level Three in a NDNA Quality Counts Accreditation Scheme.
