Open Door Policy

Studies have shown that a child will benefit most when the triangle of parent, child and childcare professional are all working together. At Cranford Crèche and Montessori we have an open-door policy for parents, as we believe it is sensible to work with the parents in all aspects of decision making for the benefit of the child.

Our staff positively encourage parents to stay and observe the daily routine, particularly when their child is settling in. A notice board keeps parents up-to-date and at the end of each session the team will communicate to you, the parent, the important aspects of your child's day.

Our Staff

Our most valuable resource is our team of highly qualified and experienced childcare professionals. We are constantly seeking ways to further improve our service and remain up-to-date on childcare and early learning issues by ensuring that our team have access to on-going training and development.

All our staff are committed to creating a warm, friendly and loving atmosphere in which your child can thrive.


Meals are prepared daily in our fully equipped crèche kitchen, using the freshest ingredients. All food preparation follows the strictest EU HACCP system food hygiene guidelines.

We believe that meals should be fun, sociable times for your child. Good eating habits are promoted through our varied and nutritious menus. Special diets are catered for.
