Reviews

9.8 Bright Horizons Church Crookham Day Nursery and Preschool has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.773)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Bright Horizons Church Crookham Day Nursery and Preschool is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 92 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons Church Crookham Day Nursery and Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 40 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Day Nursery / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Day Nursery receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

    The Average Rating of 4.773 for Bright Horizons Church Crookham Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (870 Excellents x 5) + (209 Goods x 4) + (20 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 1099 Ratings = 4.773

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Day Nursery to friends and family?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Horizons Church Crookham Day Nursery and Preschool is based on 40 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 16 positive Reviews (80 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 40 Reviews ÷ 16 Target Reached = 1

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

I'm more than happy with the service and support Bright Horizons provide my little girl. Now 2, she is very much at home and looks forward to her nursery days.

I can't fault the staff, they are consistent and reliable which is key for any child's development. I've watched how the staff interact with my child and others and it is clear they tailor their approach to meet individual needs. My little girl has come on leaps and bounds and I couldn't be happier with her progress. I've never had any problems with my little one, she is always full of smiles and chatter.

All staff have been approachable from day one. It's a tough job and we are truly grateful for the care and support we have and continue to receive. Thank you.

We have been so happy with the nursery from when our son started almost a year ago.

I feel that his development is always being looked at and the varied activities really do support this.

The overview at the end of the day and development meetings with his key worker are amazing and make me feel part of his time at nursery.

When I pick up my Nephew from Church Crookham, I am always greeted with smiling faces and the management team are very warm and friendly. The staff in the room are very informative of my nephew's day and tell me exactly what he has been up to. This makes it easy for me to give all the details to his parents when they get back from work.

When I arrive to pick him up, he is always happy and sometimes doesn't even want to come home! The nursery is colourful and fun and I know my nephew is always in safe hands. I would recommend Church Crookham nursery to anyone.

My son started the nursery earlier this year and everyone has been so patient and caring.
He took a while to adjust being separated from me but I felt confident that his key worker, plus all other staff were very able to look after him and settle him in for his session.
He loves going to nursery and I am happy he has adjusted so well.

My son has just moved up a class and it has gone really well the staff have been excellent and made sure the transition was as smooth as possible. He loves being in the garden and running around and I know the staff are looking after him and making sure he has a fun day with lots of learning. I am really happy with the updates I receive and had a really good discussion around his development with all the staff at the recent open evening.
A very small thing I noticed is that since moving up it no longer says on his day sheet what he had to eat it only shows the amount. As I don't get to pick him up every day it would be really useful to include it.
Keep up the good work.

Brilliant nursery! My eldest child attended from when they opened, it was a no brainier for baby number 2. More of a family than daycare.
I just want to add, both my children have allergies, the babies very severe. I have so much reassurance as they are so hot on it!

Bright Horizons in Church Crookham is a fantastic nursery that I wholeheartedly recommend to any parent. The establishment leaves me confident in feeling that my child is safe when I leave them there. The fun and developmental attitude from the nursery staff means that my child is excited to attend every week (despite initially being upset with separation from their parents). The social skills being exhibited from my child spending time here is outstanding and that alone would merit a recommendation, however, the dedication of the staff and the daily feedback give extra credit.

Sending your child to this nursery will lead to them developing in a positive way from a safe space. It is fun for the children and the dedication of the team there means that your children will be enthused to return, even if nervous or upset in the initial period.

We had visited a lot of nurseries before we made the decision to go with Bright Horizons Church Crookham. I hated the thought of leaving our child with others but I have to say, we were blown away by the service, thoughtfulness and loving caring nature of all the staff we met. We absolutely love the staff, they are super friendly, caring, loving and great fun.

The girls are very hands on which for me is reassuring and I know my child is getting the guidance, encouragement and excitement he needs to gain the confidence to then start exploring independently. We feel comfortable to leave our child there.

Would highly recommend this nursery!

Best of all is her learning which has come on in leaps and bounds. I'd have no hesitation in recommending.

Bright Horizons Church Crookham Day Nursery and Preschool is a lovely friendly and caring nursery. All the staff are professional and whether they work with your child or not they seem to know them well. The meals provided always sound delicious and varied. I wouldn't mind joining them every day for lunch. I know when I pick my daughter up on an evening that she's had a fun stimulating day and at bedtime, she's quickly out for the count. A great nursery!

We couldn't be happier with our choice of nursery for our daughter. As well as being the most flexible I had come across in the area for the availability that we needed, Bright Horizons also provide such a high level of care.
All staff are friendly and approachable to both ourselves and our daughter, and now a full year in, I feel they are an extended part of our family and are trusted with the care of our daughter as such. We know that she is with kind and caring people, who will work actively upon her development and provide a fantastic array and standard of meals throughout the day. We can see her blossoming in her development, and a huge part of that is down to the team at Bright Horizons Church Crookham Day Nursery and Preschool. Thank you.

I have 2 children at Bright Horizons Church Crookham and am constantly impressed with the care they provide my children. The nursery is clean and bright and the staff are extremely dedicated and friendly.
It can be difficult at first when leaving your baby but they are all so supportive and I always leave knowing they are in the best place whilst I work, in fact, my eldest loves it so much it can be difficult to get her to leave when I pick up!

My girls both attended (one still there), staff are lovely and friendly. The girls love spending time there (especially the sandpit judging but the amount of sand they bring home in their pockets!!!).
The garden is lovely and we especially like the open door policy which encourages the children to integrate with other age groups and spend time outside. The staff are doing a great job.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Bright Horizons at Church Crookham to anyone. My daughter has been there for 10 months now and has really come on in leaps and bounds.

She is joining to get out of the car when we arrive and loves all of the friendly staff, that have a smile and wave for all the children. The food is second to none (me and my husband are quite jealous of our daughter's food options!).
She has fun all day in a fantastic environment and learns so much. She is really progressing well and is confident and happy. Her speech is getting excellent and everyone comments on her ability to try new activities.

We've had our challenges as do all parents with small children and I have been so pleased with how supportive the staff are with ideas to help us as new parents, always looking to support any challenges you may be having to ensure that consistency of care for the child.

I don't think you could possibly find a better place!

Both my children have attended this nursery. It's such a pleasant environment children are inside and outside as they wish. There are lots of activities and the staff are all very friendly and build up a real rapport with the children.
It is also very well run in a pragmatic, friendly and highly competent manner. I couldn't recommend this nursery highly enough - it's worth the extra travel to get to it from my house and I never have any qualms at all in dropping my daughter there.

As a nervous first time father I was really concerned about picking the right nursery. I had visited a number of nurseries and from the minute my wife and I walked through the door I knew Bright Horizons (Church-Crookham) was the place for my son. We received a warm welcome from the Deputy Manager and the team and they gave us a guided tour introducing various members of the team. Nothing was to much trouble and I really felt that they had a genuine passion for engaging and helping the kids in their care grow and develop.

Last Wednesday 07 June 2017 I went to pick my son up & before I got to his room I could hear all the kids laughing and giggling they were all playing in the black and white corner taking turns to jump in the middle of the play mats. This just summed up the team's approach and I knew I had made the right choice for my son.

My husband and I absolutely love this nursery. Our daughter has attended since late last year and the care provided is superb.
It is always very hard making the decision to go back to work and leave them in the care of someone else but the team there made it a very easy step.
I love all the processes that are in place and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the nursery to friends and family. Thank you to the team for all you do to make it (in my opinion) the best nursery in the area.

As a nursery teacher, I'm very fussy about where my son goes to nursery. I cannot say how happy I am with Bright Horizons and the staff in the Investigators room. Every day, I arrive to find my son literally shouting with joy in the garden. He has so much fun and there is no doubt the staff really care about the children. They forever have children hanging off them and cuddling them. It's a lovely, warm environment and I love that staff are allowed to express themselves.

A welcoming nursery as soon as you walk through the door. Staff are always happy to help and friendly. I feel at ease leaving my child in their care and feel he is developing well for his age. All staff know the children well and their routines, it feels like a home from home.
I love the free flow aspect of the nursery as my little one loves the outdoors.
I love how management keeps parents up to date with relevant information and events coming up within the setting.

Very welcoming and friendly nursery. Staff are always friendly, happy, helpful and professional with the children and with the parents. The free flow from the rooms into the garden is brilliant and encourages the children to play outside.

My only criticisms are the meal times and area for the children to sleep. Lunch and supper are both too early and it would be great if there was a quiet area for them to sleep. Sometimes there is too much going on and he's too excited to sleep or he's woken up after a short space of time so is over tired when he gets home.
That said the staff care and are really friendly. We're always greeted with a smile and our little boy enjoys his time at nursery. Am very impressed with Bright Horizons Church Crookham Day Nursery and Preschool.

I have only good things to say about this nursery. Both my daughters who attend really enjoy their time at nursery, they love the activities they undertake and their development has really progressed during their time there. All the staff are really helpful, enthusiastic and supportive to the children. The facilities are excellent, garden area is very popular and at home development activities are really useful to help continue the girl's development at home. I would happily recommend this nursery to other parents, and regularly do!

I have my second child, my son, at this nursery now. My daughter is now at school. My daughter loved nursery and pre-school and she blossomed there. Early years care is so important and the fleet nursery does a stellar job of providing the nurturing, caring, safe, fun environment for children. I also value the educational development and skills they have provided to both my children. I have never worried a single second about the care they are getting. My son isn't there as often as my daughter but I can see how much he benefits from it. Thank you.

I have 2 children who attend Bright Horizons Church Crookham Day Nursery and Preschool. It's a fantastic nursery! It's clean, tidy, it has a great outdoor space, the food is excellent and the staff are amazing!
My children love attending the nursery and I feel really reassured that they attend such a good establishment. It has a warm and welcoming feel and is run extremely well - credit to the management team there.
My son is now in the pre-school which is part of the nursery and really benefits from the mixture of the free flow to the outdoor play area (this has been one of my favourite parts about the setting) and the structure in the room to get him settled and ready for school.
The staff really are fantastic and my children have benefited hugely from attending.
HIGHLY recommend!

My daughter has been attending this nursery since September 2016 and I'm thrilled with how she's doing. She only attends twice a week and I am amazed at how her key worker and the other members of staff have formed such a strong relationship so very quickly.
I have seen progress in her development that I put down solely to that of this nursery. She is now a keen mark maker, an explorer of her surroundings and an adventurous eater.
When I collect my daughter at the end of the day, the feedback that they give me is detailed. It is clear that they know my child as an individual, something which I think is important.

My son has been a bit emotional recently, and his wonderful keyworker and the rest of the nursery staff have learnt to notice when he's about to have a wobble and divert his attention. It's really helped him, and he feels so secure there as he is never just left to feel down and alone. He is so much more confident and so much happier. He knows he is able to approach any of the staff- even if all he feels he needs is a cuddle! He comes home with such big smiles and stories of his day which is wonderful for us to hear.

Our son really enjoys his time at nursery each day. He goes 5 days per week and is always excited to attend. The nursery have a variety of activities each day and the open space of the garden is a big plus for me. The nursery nurses in his room are always friendly and asking about what he does outside of nursery to help his development.
His development overall appears to coming on leaps and bounds from the daily activities at the nursery.
Very impressed with there overall approach and would certainly recommend to other people.

My son has attended Church Crookham Day Nursery and Preschool since he was 7 months old in March 2014. I could not be happier with the care and attention he has received.

I have two older children who attended another nursery in the area so am in the position of being able to compare, -and whilst I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the other nursery, Church Crookham is in a league of its own.

The staff turnover seems to be much less and the staff seem to be, generally, more experienced.

My son has formed some close bonds with the nursery nurses and they genuinely appear to adore him in return.

One of the nicest things about the nursery is that, with the exception of the baby room, the rooms all have direct access to the garden which is open at all times. My son is happiest outside and so spends much of his days in the fresh air playing rather than only being given access to the outside at prescribed intervals.

Would not hesitate to recommend and will be sad to say goodbye.

Such a professional yet homely and family orientated nursery. We have had our eldest child attend the nursery full time from 11 months old through to graduation. She loved attending the school. Now my son is there full time and I can honestly say that he skips into the school. I believe children are the best judges of the school and both my son and daughter love Church Crookham. I will recommend the school to anyone.

We have been connected to the nursery for the past 5 years now with our 2nd child attending, we did look around to see if we could find a most cost effective way of childcare. We did find cheaper but only slightly and we felt this wasn't worth the saving to what we would be losing. This nursery is by far the best in the area. The staff have a real passion for what they do and really care about the children, the food is amazing and our son's diet is very good due to this. (He was being fussy and they catered for this) I would recommend this nursery to everyone and the management are very professional and real stars. Any issues, queries get dealt with in a timely manner. Very polite, friendly, relaxed environment.

We have just started at the nursery and have had such a great positive experience. My son, who normally struggles with new things, settled immediately. I have been really impressed with the friendly and professional approach of the staff and the day is well structured and organised for the children. I was really touched that on the first day, I was given some laminated photos of him enjoying his day: what a great form of reassurance for a worried parent:-)

My son has thrived with his development since starting at the nursery and I couldn't think of anywhere else I'd be happy in dropping him off... We're moving 20 mins away but I'm still keeping him here!!

Highly professional in every aspect of nursery care for our twin boys. We are delighted with our choice of Church Crookham as the first nursery. Since joining, their communication skills have come on leaps and bounds. The boys are very attached to their dedicated carers, which is rather evident when we ask them if they want to go to 'school'. The answer is always a resounding YES.

Well done to all at Bright Horizons Church Crookham!

My daughter has been at the nursery for nearly a year and a half and took a while to settle but the staff always took the trouble to phone me to say she had settled and as she moved up to her new room the staff always make the transition very smooth. The staff are very caring and have very high standards and this is seen at all levels from management to the nursery staff. Can't fault them at all. We are very happy with the nursery and have just signed up our other daughter to start next September.

The team here are excellent; they have a passion for looking after all of their children in their care and cannot be faulted. There is a culture of open communication between nursery staff and parents, and they are happy to listen and action where necessary.
Children can always be picky about their food but I have found that the menus are well received even for food that will not be eaten at home (and my child is not fussy but has been a typical toddler!)
The free-flow environment from inside to outside certainly makes this place special, allowing the children to use their own inclination where they wish.
Inside all the rooms are equipped with the latest education toys, role play, arts and crafts etc, with every day them doing something different.
For the older children where necessary, they are stretched being encouraged to extend themselves whilst nurturing that inquisitive learning mentality that all children have.

The facilities at church Crookham are great for allowing my son to run around and play and learn in a safe and fun environment. I have been especially happy in the last month as the staff have been extremely helpful and supportive as my son has moved into the graduators room in the pre-school at a time when he has also had to deal with the arrival of a little sister at home. During this time of change, he has remained happy and engaged thanks to the attentive staff, who have also continued to help support him as he continues to potty train. Really pleased with the time my son has spent at church Crookham and have already booked a place for my daughter for next year.

We love this Nursery for our twin boys. All the staff are lovely and caring and really pay attention to our children. We would recommend them to anyone and everyone.
There's always something new to learn and the boys are always happy. We always get a thorough report on what they did in the day and how much they ate.

It's always so warm and welcoming my eldest has learnt so much in a short space of time from being at nursery and he's always beaming to tell me everything he has got up to. My youngest is there too and they have gone out of their way to work with me and my daughter to provide the best individualised care for her.

The team at Bright Horizons Church Crookham are just fantastic and I can't recommend the nursery enough. Our entire experience, from visiting and receiving a tour before our son joined, through to the ongoing care our son receives today, has been simply brilliant. The facilities are stimulating, engaging and spotless - the staff are incredibly friendly, caring and helpful. I am always astounded by their care and love for the children's development and how they think of the little things that really make a difference to both parents and their precious ones. My son's development has come on in leaps and bounds since he's been at Bright Horizons and we are truly lucky to have found such a fantastic nursery. I can't recommend them enough and having seen and experienced nurseries before, Bright Horizons Church Crookham is miles ahead and a true benchmark for other nurseries to follow.

Excellent - well trained and professional staff, purpose-built facilities, clean, healthy and from scratch food served and excellent methods to aid learning. The team work tirelessly with you to assist your child in learning new skills/ language and assisting in late developers i.e. speech/ potty training etc.

From visiting a number of nurseries I instantly know when walking into Kid Unlimited that this was the place for my 9 month boy. A friend with a 3 year old had also highly recommended it. The management team are so friendly and professional and the child care and development is well structured. They are supportive and very flexible to your individual child's needs. They give me lots of updates and pics knowing it is difficult to leave your pride and joy with someone else. I also love that it is all inclusive giving such ease. The standard of food is also fantastic. I'm very fussy about the correct nutrition for my baby. Keeping my baby here has also influenced our house moving plans. They are fantastic.

Excellent facilities being that it is purpose built and relatively new, it feels modern, bright, clean and great flow between indoors and outdoors from all rooms. Good segmentation of children by age/development. The staff on the rooms are without exception excellent, friendly and attentive. They strike a good balance between being patient and supportive, but also educational. nice range of activities on offer, and great weekend events at Xmas, summer fayre, etc. Quite a few daytime opportunities too, like Valentine's breakfast, Mother's Day tea party.
The only constraint is that the nursery is so over subscribed that getting an occasional day when required is next to impossible. Very frustrating when work is busy and you have no family on your doorstep.
I am also surprised that they do not offer 'parents evening' like other nurseries. That said, I know I can ask for a review at any point so not a major concern. Maybe it happens with later age groups than my 2 year old.

Love this nursery! My little one has attended since a baby and has gone through all the rooms. The staff have been amazing and have supported us through all milestones. I am full of praise for The nursery management team.

From when I drop him off in morning to picking him up, I know he will be safe, loved and having fun learning all the time!

Since my daughter has been at Kids Unlimited her development and confidence has been remarkable. She started at 9 months old and is now two and a half. Her transition from room and key person has been remarkable and since moving into investigators, her communication has come on leaps and bounds and she now has a relationship with all the workers and isn't phased when someone new comes into the room. Her bond with her key person is valuable and communication to myself is also fantastic.

Very happy with the transition to the next room, child settled quickly and development and growth noticeable. Staff do all they can to accommodate e.g when our child was struggling to sleep extra measures and use of blanket from home was welcomed and encouraged. The staff in the room have a lovely connection with the kids and make the room a fun happy learning environment. We have however experienced a number of key worker changes and room manager changes difficult to get continuity and a feeling that one single person is concentrating on our child.

Church Crookham Kidsunlimited is a lovely place for children to be. My son enjoys his stay and activities here every day. They have free access to the garden which enables them to explore the outside whenever they want. The staff here are very friendly and helpful. My son established relationships with his key persons very quickly. They are very pro-active at solving problems as well. My sons key person made books for us to use at home to help with meal and sleep routine and Christmas period as well. I feel very comfortable dropping my son here every day knowing he will enjoy his day here.

Our child has been at this nursery since a year old. He's now 4.. The staff's nurturing care is excellent. They not only put your child at ease on their early days of attending but the put the parent at ease too. Contact at any point during the day is encouraged. As our child has grown and developed he's moved up through each class and we see the nursery as extended family. He's also an excellent learning environment. Group activities inside and outside, one to one learning and attention, P.E and French too! Thank you all the staff for your love, care and constant attention.

Very caring and friendly atmosphere with lots of new ideas all the time on how to delight the children. For example leading up to Christmas there was a naughty elf who came out each night and left a trail of paint/flour/etc for the children to discover the next morning.

This nursery is lovely! From our first visit where there was a welcome sign on the door to my daughters first day where I was given a little care package they could not be more thoughtful. The staff are so friendly and polite and the nursery itself is amazing! Great facilities for all ages and everything has been well thought through.

Our little one loves this nursery. She has been going since 5 months and cannot wait to go every day. All the staff are lovely and they know every single child/baby which go there full or part time, even if they don't belong in their respective age groups. The whole set up of the nursery is geared to make the kids confident and learn whilst having fun. Our little one has just started French lessons in addition to her weekly "stretch and grow", both which she thinks is great. She comes home most weeks with a culinary achievement. The nursery are very charity focused and hold many events throughout the year and encourage parents to get involved. The nursery has accommodated our wishes concerning our little one's routine and have helped us through the usual rough and tumbles. Our child's development is key and we genuinely believe she wouldn't get much better anywhere else.

Our oldest child started at this nursery when he was 7 months old and it had only just opened - the moment we walked in we knew that we wanted a place, lots of light, cleverly designed with lots of free flow into the garden. Three years on and our second child has also started and we didn't hesitate to put their name down. Whilst the building is fantastic, all on one level for a start, the staff are outstanding. The relationships and interactions with the children is amazing and the atmosphere is one of encouragement and development. Changes to the way the preschool works at the nursery have been positive with children having PE and Show and Tell days to help with the transition to school and a great idea to implement. I will be very sad when my oldest leaves but happy in the knowledge that the time spent here will have set them in good stead for school. I would strongly recommend anyone wanting to send their children to a nursery to put the names down as soon as possible.

We are fortunate to have several nurseries within a mile of home and went to see them all when we both went back to work. While the others were good, Kids Unlimited just shone above them for quality, professionalism and expertise.

As this was our first experience of professional childcare we were obviously nervous and somewhat demanding for the best for our child. The staff were very accommodating and the settling in sessions went very well. Our daughter was a little upset for a few weeks when we left her – but more for effect I think! As soon as we left the room and looked back she was comforted and playing – although still pleased to see us when at the end of the day.

The Explorers room where we started while our daughter was 12 months old was brilliant, very close bonds with the staff and high levels of engagement. We have now moved up to Discovers which is more focused on gaining some independence – the fact that she has access to the outdoor play area at all times is probably her favourite part – this was always a key advantage of the bespoke building that other converted facilities just cannot match.

The outdoor play area is safe, clean and our daughters second home – by choice I hasten to add! Maybe because she gets to wear her Thomas the Tank Engine wellies – but I like to think it is to play in all the outside zones.

Communication is also great, every day we have a report on what happened in our daughters development and we get a weekly newsletter with information on activities and any staff changes, which allows us to know if the key workers are available or not, and also extra sessions which may be available (very rarely!) which can sometimes be useful if we have unusual work activities.

All I would suggest is get your name down early as this is the place most people want to go!

Thank you so much for your kind words, I will share them with the rest of the team.

I have two children at Kids Unlimited Church Crookham and both absolutely LOVE it there. The teachers are all top class and the facilities and range of activities planned for the children are wonderful. There is never a morning my two don't want to go to nursery. I would highly recommend the school.

Gemma Lacy

Job Title: Nursery Manager

Joined: 2009

Description:

I opened Church Crookham Day Nursery back in September 2012 with a small team of 6 staff and only a handful of children. Now, I manage a full, busy nursery which is at full capacity with a waiting list and a team of almost 40! I absolutely love coming to work and I am very passionate about the nursery, the service we provide and the team, but most importantly, the children! I have known I wanted a career caring for children since I was very young. I have many younger cousins and I loved helping my Nan look after them all in the school holidays and that’s where my passion for child care and development started.

My employment with the company started in June 2010. I managed the Wandsworth Nursery in South London for 2 years before transferring here to be closer to home and having the challenge of starting up a brand new nursery. Church Crookham Day Nursery has been extremely successful; we have been inspected by Ofsted twice and were awarded ‘outstanding’ both times and we have a 5* food hygiene rating for our kitchen.

I have worked in child care since 2001 when I started as a young apprentice in a small nursery in Basingstoke. I gained my Level 3 qualification a year after then worked my way up through the positions over the years. I completed my Level 4 in Early Years, Care and Development in 2008. All of my professional experience has been with children under 5 in nursery settings. I have been a nursery manager since 2009

Job Title: Deputy Manager

Joined: 2012

Description:

I have worked at Church Crookham Day Nursery since we opened in September 2012, along with 5 other staff members and have seen the nursery grow and develop into an amazing place. I started as a Nursery Nurse and soon progressed to Room Manager of the baby room. I spent nearly 2 years in there before I went on to run the toddler unit for a year. I was promoted to Deputy Manager in April 2016 and I am loving gaining experience within a different side of Child Care.

I have an NVQ level 3 in Childcare and Education and have done lots of internal training since completing this, including an NVQ level 2 in Team Leadership and Management. I have worked in Early Years since 2008 and still love every second of it! I have worked in 2 Nurseries previous to Church Crookham and have gained a lot of experience which has made me a much stronger practitioner and leader. I have done a lot of babysitting for various families since I was 16 and have always known that this was the right career for me.

In my spare time I love spending time with my Nephew and Niece, Zak and Nova who live in Wales. I travel to see them as much as I can and enjoy bringing a lot of my professional knowledge to help them to thrive and grow, as well as getting into a lot of mischief!
