The Baltic Triangle is a historic industrial area of Liverpool with a rich past, claiming its name from sea trade links with the Baltic countries. Despite heavy bombing during World War Two, the area boasts many listed buildings. However, the location was gradually abandoned as Liverpool’s docks declined.
When the trade coming through Liverpool’s docks declined, many of the listed buildings lay abandoned. However, by the early 2000s, entertainment and arts venues took root. Ten years later, that had evolved into an emerging thriving digital and creative quarter. The vibrant, fast-growing area is now home to many cultural and creative businesses, therefore known as Liverpool’s ‘Creative and Digital Quarter.’
The Childcare Academy is the first nursery serving this rapidly growing hub, sitting at the southern point of the city of Liverpool.
