It’s a Kids Country!

By on July 21, 2014


A brand new purpose-built one-of-a-kind children’s day nursery is due to open its doors on 1st November 2014 in the village of Over Peover, just outside of Knutsford.

Local brothers, Michael and Andrew Irlam, previously of the reputable haulier James Irlam Logistics, have embarked on this exciting venture together after identifying the need for a high-quality childcare setting to provide for the village and surrounding vicinity.

The building is a complete conversion of an old disused farm building which is surrounded by ample landscaping; providing the perfect location for a sizable nursery and space to create an impressive outdoor area.

“It was the perfect opportunity to add another dimension to the village. It is the ideal setting for a childcare facility in the countryside; where we can provide a gateway to the great outdoors – a place where children can grow, learn and thrive in a unique setting.”
Andrew Irlam, Co-founder

Andrew, together with brother Michael, are Directors of the Company and have been local to Over Peover since they were born. They are very family orientated and community-minded and are both very excited to be launching Kids’ Country Day Nursery.


They have appointed Becky Bugg, of Northwich, to be the Nursery Manager of Kids’ Country. Becky is a fully qualified and experienced Nursery Manager and has worked with children for over a decade.

“I am absolutely thrilled to be on board and I am really looking forward to this exciting adventure. Childcare is my passion and I am feeling very privileged to be playing such a huge part in the set-up of Kids’ Country. The setting is going to be breathtaking and I am eager to recruit a team of like-minded professionals who share my vision, aims, enthusiasm, drive and ambition to strive for an outstanding nursery; providing the highest standards of quality care and education for children and their families.” Becky Bugg, Kids’ Country Day Nursery manager

The construction work is currently underway and behind the scenes, the team are making big plans for the learning environments including the outdoor space.

“Kids’ Country will have some inspiring unique aspects that children and parents alike will love. We are putting a huge emphasis on outdoor play, with impressive equipment, a natural woodland area and a petting zoo with different animal friends coming to visit on a daily basis. In addition to these exciting features, children will also have direct access onto their own age/stage appropriate play area adjacent to their playrooms which will also be kitted out with stimulating resources and equipment.”
Michael Irlam, co-founder.

The nursery will be open from 7.30am until 6.00pm Monday to Friday, excluding bank holidays and Christmas week. They will be offering morning, afternoon and full day care for children from 0 to 5 years with special rates for full time places.
