Crystal Day Nursery

Hi, my name is Sophie, I am the Manager at Crystal Day Nursery. We are a 30 place Day Nursery in Sydenham, SE26. Following our last Inspection OFSTED said "Leadership at the Nursery is good and the Manager places high priority on the quality of the teaching."

Crystal Day Nursery is housed on two floors of a detached Victorian building and consists of three group rooms; a baby room catering for six children from three months to two years, a pre- school area catering for sixteen children aged from two to five years and a two to three year olds room which can take eight children. The preschool and two year old areas have their own bathrooms and the baby room has its own nappy changing facilities. On the first floor there is an office/ staff room and outside there is a pleasant sized secure nursery garden which is partly laid with safety surfacing. The kitchen is a well equipped and fresh food is prepared daily by our nursery cook.

Nine qualified and experienced staff care for the thirty children that attend Crystal day nursery. The staff are led by Jackie the Nursery Manager and her Assistant Manager Barbara Murrell. The staff at Crystal Day Nursery are supported by the nursery cook, the nursery housekeeper, and the maintenance officer. Management, Human Resources and curriculum issues are supported by Director Lorraine Duffy. Director Paul Duffy oversees management and finance issues supported by our administration and accounts assistant Dianne Russell.

Crystal Day Nursery is open 50 weeks a year, 5 days a week from 8am to 6pm.
