The Croft Nursery is a well established nursery which opened in 1990. The Croft is a Victorian property giving the nursery a home from home feel – a ‘Safe and Happy Place to Grow and Learn’.
The nursery is open Monday to Friday for 51 weeks of the year and is open from 7am until 6pm. It caters for 58 children, aged between 6 weeks to school age and offers full and part time places along with funded hours to 2, 3, and 4 years olds.
The children are placed in age and stage appropriate rooms, this enables them to engage in a wide range of activities to meet their individual needs in line with the Early Years Foundations Stage.
The nursery has a lovely secure garden which enables the children to explore and widen their experiences outdoors. A large canopy covers a soft play area which allows the children to be protected from the sun during the summer months and provides shelter in the rain.
The nursery employs a dedicated and experienced team who undertake regular training such as Paediatric First Aid, Safeguarding and Food Safety.
All meals are prepared on site by two experienced cooks who provide a well balanced healthy diet. All dietary requirements are catered for.
The nursery is easily accessible by car or bus and is only a short minute walk from Newcastle town centre and the Royal Stoke Hospital (UHNM).

I have been using The Croft nursery for over three years now, I used it with my first child and when my second was born and I returned to work I didn’t hesitate to send her too!
In the time that I have sent my girls there they have developed so much, the learning they acquire through play and activities has been clearly thought about and delivered at a high level. It’s brilliant to go and pick them up and see what they have been up to with work coming home, photographs or stories about their day!
The children are cared for at a high level and their well being is important to the staff, if they have been poorly or emotional they have been supported and helped.
The food that is provided is exceptional and both children have enjoyed the home cooked food.
Overall, I think this is an outstanding nursery and I know that every day they have attended has been the best decision I made when choosing this nursery. Thank you, ladies, for all that you do!
What works well? Personal approach and care tailored to each unique kid's needs/strengths, constant and accurate feedback on activities and progress, tidy and familiar environment that empowers kids.
We are so grateful for your hard work! Thank you for being by our Daughters side while she explores and develops her potential, thank you for your professional yet personal touch, thank you for keeping learning so much fun and for all the effort and purpose behind each activity.
The staff at The Croft go above and beyond to care for my son and have also supported me as a Mother when I have needed it. He is always safe and happy, thank you.
I honestly couldn't think of a way you could improve if I tried!
"Amazing staff and I feel very at ease leaving my Daughter here whilst I go to work. She loves the staff they are like family, nothing is too much trouble "just ask". A has learnt so much since going here and I think we are very lucky to have such amazing staff looking after our most precious possessions. All the staff are a credit to the nursery.
