About us

Play Away is a private day nursery offering full-time and part-time care on two independently run sites in Runcorn. Established in 1993 in purpose built premises, the Beechwood based Play Away has grown and has now firmly established itself as a centre offering high quality childcare to families throughout Halton and the surrounding areas. Responding to demand in the local area, Play Away commissioned the building of a second Nursery on Langdale Road. The Langdale Road site opened in 2001. In 2003, the Beechwood building was extended and completely refurbished. Both sites offer day care provision in modern and comfortable surroundings.

You will find much more information about our nurseries in the links above. You can also view the latest OFSTED reports for both Langdale Road and Beechwood using the links at the bottom of the page.

Our carefully planned 'next steps' approach to child development ensures that your baby or child will get the most out of their time with us, both in terms of education and enjoyment. Your involvement in the activities we undertake is encouraged and welcomed and you will have open access to your child’s progress. It is through the close relationship we have with our parents that we are able to promote the EYFS that will over time help your little one with the transition from nursery to school.

If you have any questions about the nursery or if you would like to make an appointment to see the nursery in action, you can find contact information in the Contact Us link at the top of the page.
