We offer a warm, welcoming environment that is the perfect first step away from home for your little one. Although not required to be OFSTED- registered, we adhere to the same high standards as with our nurseries, in terms of valuing each individual child and their social and educational development. An essential staple of the crèche is of course plenty of cuddles, delivered freely by our warm, experienced, and well-trained staff team.

Toileting

Most children at the crèche will not yet be potty trained. Please supply nappies and wipes in a small bag which can be hung from your child’s named peg, and let us know if you are attempting potty training so we can follow as closely as possible what you are doing at home. At all times we will do our best to support strategies you are finding useful but please also feel free to ask our well-qualified team for ideas and suggestions, whether it concerns your toddler’s behaviour, eating, toileting or sleeping.

Moving On

In July, when moving from the crèche to Little Oaks One, we offer a settling-in experience for one or two sessions as part of our transition programme. Children are thus well-prepared for what comes next.
