Crystal Early Years

Hi, my name is Jackie, I am the Manager at Crystal Early Years. We are a 59 place day Nursery in Anerley, SE20. Following our last Inspection OFSTED said "Children enjoy strong relationships with staff, so they are happy and keen to learn. They grow rapidly in self-assurance."

Crystal Early Years Centre is housed in a large two storey house with off-street parking available to the front of the building for dropping off and collecting children. There are five group rooms in the nursery, on the ground floor there are two baby rooms catering for up to fifteen children aged three months to two years and a two to three year old room which can take twelve children. On the first floor there is a pre-school room catering for up to twenty four two to five year olds as well as a two to three year old 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 laid with safety surfacing. The kitchen is a well equipped and fresh food is prepared daily by our nursery cook.

Twenty three qualified and experienced staff acre for the 59 children that attend Crystal Early Years. The staff are led by Karen Kelly and Donna Shepherd Gill the nursery managers. The staff at Crystal Early Years 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.

The nursery is open from 8am to 6pm for 50 weeks of the year.
