The Crescent Pre-school is situated on Toynbee Road next to the Crescent Primary School. We open sessionally with our hours as follows:
Morning: 9am - 12pm or 9am - 12:30pm with lunch club
Afternoon: 12:30pm - 3:30pm or 12:00pm - 3:30pm with lunch club
Full day: 9am - 3:30pm with lunch club
From September 2018 each session (AM or PM) is charged at £15.00 and the lunch fee is £2.50. We do not provide a lunch but if you would like your child to stay for the lunch club you will need to provide a packed lunch.
We provide sessional care for children aged 2 years until they transition to school. We can have up to 30 children per session and we accept both private and government funding for both 2 and 3 year olds. We also accept childcare vouchers.
We currently have 7 members of staff working at the pre-school; 6 of the staff members are qualified to level 3 or above and 1 member of staff is working towards completing her level 2 apprenticeship. Our manager Donna and the deputy Becca will always be around to answer any questions.
We offer all the children in our care an opportunity to reach their full potential in a safe, happy and positive environment.
We do this by:-
Ensuring that all planned activities are based around the children’s interests.
Working in partnership with parents to help children learn and develop.
Using Tapestry, an online learning journal to track children’s development and progress. This enables parents to securely access their child’s journal from home with the opportunity to see observations and photographs from their time at Pre-school.
Providing a healthy nutritional snack both in the morning and afternoon, ensuring we meet the children’s dietary requirements.
If you would like to view the Pre-school please do not hesitate to contact us to arrange a visit.
