The Croft Nursery is a private day nursery which opened in 1990 and is registered for 54 children. It operates from a large detached Victorian House within walking distance of Newcastle Town centre and The Royal Stoke Hospital. There is a car park situated at the rear of the building. Children have the opportunity to access the outdoor area during their time at the nursery, this can be accessed through the preschool room. All of the meals are prepared and cooked on site. We have fresh meat, fruit and vegetables delivered weekly by local suppliers. The menus are on a four weekly rota and are in line with the ‘Healthy Eating Award’ in which we achieved at ‘Silver Level’. The nursery has an app which the parents are encouraged to download, this enables the nursery to send out notifications as to different events that are taking place at the nursery such as photographs, providing sun cream etc. A ‘construction site’ has been put together outside which includes; a cement mixer, sand buckets, foam house bricks, a tray of stones/rocks with diggers and trucks, hard hats, hi-viz waistcoats, gloves, tape measures, tools, a tray & wall for Duplo bricks and clips boards and pens. This is situated in a small gated off area of the garden and will allow a few children at a time to play.
