The crèche was first opened in 1999 by the Aykroyds manufacturing company to provide Childcare for the local area. It has since been established as a nursery which provides an excellent service.
The crèche aims to provide a consistent high level of childcare so that every parent may rest assured that their child is well cared for. The most recent inspection report commented on our excellent ‘settling in’ policy which allows parents and children plenty of opportunities to visit the crèche beforehand ensuring parents feel at ease leaving their child in our care.

The crèche provides childcare for children from 6 weeks old to 4 years. There is also a before and after school / holiday club for school age children from 4 to 11 years. Opening hours are 8.00am till 5.30pm Monday till Friday all year except Bank holidays and Christmas.
Staff turnover is extremely low therefore children are often cared for by the same staff members throughout their time at the crèche. Good teamwork is essential and staff at the crèche value and support each other to ensure the care provided is of high standard throughout.
Every inspection report has commented on the warm relationship between staff and children, and also the happy and relaxed atmosphere. Our Healthy Eating policy was also commended by the inspection. The crèche provides breakfast, freshly cooked meals and snacks throughout the day at no extra charge. The crèche has also received commendation for high standards of cleanliness and maintenance.
One of our main aims is to provide a flexible childcare service through working with parents in order to create sessions of childcare which suit individual families’ working hours. The family unit has evolved over the past few years which means at some point many families will need to use childcare as one or both parents return to work. We acknowledge that each families’ childcare needs vary from one to another. It is possible to request flexible childcare and we will do our best to meet your specific needs.
