Here at Cradley Play Nursery we are able to provide loving care for children aged 3 months to 4+ years.

At Cradley Play Nursery we provide the best environment in which to nurture and develop each child in our care. An awareness of culture and emotional understanding, intellect, physical and social skills are promoted using positive imagery and practices.

The happiness, well-being and education of each child is of utmost importance to us. As such our practices follow the governments initiative “Every Child Matters” and Early Years Foundation Stage Guidance. Each child within the nursery is encouraged to develop to their full academic and creative potential and are encouraged to question discuss and evaluate.

The nursery promotes personal and social development. Each child is encouraged to join in a wide variety of experiences. The pursuit of ideals and qualities such as enthusiasm and self-esteem are nurtured. We are staffed and resourced with this in mind, and the curriculum is planned to offer the widest possible range of opportunities even for our youngest babies.

Constructive parental involvement in the life of the nursery is encouraged and all parents are welcome to contact and visit the nursery as they wish.
