  • Daily sessions for Early Years are from 8.30 am to 5.00 pm

A few comments from parents of our children:

"Communication is fantastic. Always informed, I love the tapestry app. Early years settings should model themselves on Croft early years."

"I cannot thank Stef enough for her care and support she has given to my child. He has had exceptional care and Stef has made such a positive impact on his speech, ability to make friends and generally happiness. He adores Stef and to see how much she cares for him means so much to me."

"My child enjoys going to Croft early years and looks forward to seeing her friends and key workers."

"My son loves to be outdoors and I feel you provide such a good environment to explore. He loves telling me about the fruit and veg you grow and is now interested in the natural world around us."

"Tapestry is a good tool for the day to day and it's visual, but most important is that you are informed on a daily basis how the day went and that is done at pickup time."
