Crescent House Day Nursery was established in 1990 and is privately owned. The present owner has owned the business since June 2007. We are proud of our excellent reputation. Our opening times are 8.00am to 6.00pm, 52 weeks a year, excluding Bank Holidays. All fees include snacks, a two course lunch, a light tea and all drinks.
Crescent House Nursery is registered with and inspected by Ofsted, and has capacity for 50 children.
Our staff are our greatest asset and our staff team is a team of experienced individuals you can trust. We employ a friendly staff team which is reliable, dedicated to the care of children, imaginative and genuinely passionate about the important part the Early Years of a child’s life play in shaping their future. Staff are experts at creating a warm, fun, secure and stimulating environment in which they can interact and communicate with children effectively, responding to each child’s individual needs. We have a high adult to child ratio within the nursery.
All staff hold, or are working towards, nationally recognised qualifications in Childcare. The majority of staff either hold an NVQ Level 3 in Childcare or are qualified at NVQ Level 2 and are working towards Level 3. All staff are checked by the Criminal Records Bureau and have received child protection and first aid training.
We are very proud of the excellent relationships we have with our parents. By working in partnership with parents, we aim to ensure that your wishes and your child’s needs are met. At the end of each day, staff will give you either written or verbal feedback about what your child has done throughout the day, including information on feeding and sleeping patterns.
Parents are offered meetings twice a year to discuss their child’s progress; however, staff are avaliable to discuss any issues with you at any time. This ensures we work alongside parents to carefully plan the next steps for each child.
Our nursery is organised over two floors: the ground floor is for children aged from 3 months to 3 years and the first floor for pre-school (Foundation Stage) children, aged from 3 to 5 years. Children are grouped together according to their needs and abilities, with flexible age ranges within each group. Rooms on the ground floor are named Sunshine, Moonbeams and Stars, whilst the Pre-School is named Rockets and Rainbows.
