Choosing childcare can be an anxious time for parents and children. It can also be an exciting and happy time. Your child is growing and may be ready for more opportunities for learning and socialising with other children. Choosing a nursery or pre-school can be a very personal decision, you need to feel confident in the setting that you decide you want your child to go to. To recognise this, at Crafty Wizards we have created an '18 Must Ask Questions When Choosing Childcare' with what we think are important questions to consider. Please just enter your request in the message form on the right and we will send you our '18 Must Ask Questions When Choosing Childcare'.
Safety is a major area in childcare. We believe that we offer the best. Every full time member of staff has a Paediatric First Aid certificate. Every member of staff has an enhanced DBS (formally CRB) safeguarding check. We carry out twice daily risk assessments and have a range of policies that ensure that all staff are aware of procedures to minimise hazards for our children.
We encourage parent involvement in everything we do at Crafty Wizards Pre-School. You are your child's life long teacher and we invite parents to share information about the wellbeing, learning and development of their child through:
