Doodles Day Nursery, Chorley was established in 2006 with the aim of bringing

quality childcare for children aged birth to 4 years, into Chorley Central and

surrounding areas.

The current owner, Kerry Parkinson has owned the nursery since February 2010.

Over the years, Doodles Day Nursery has grown and developed,

which meant we were fortunate enough to expand to a bigger property in 2020.

The setting is currently managed by Rachel Miller who has worked at Doodles for

over 10 years and supporting Rachel is the Deputy Manager, Victoria Green who

has worked at Doodles for over 6 years.
