"The perfect stepping stone for our two little ones"

Croft House has been exemplary for both of my children. The ‘large enough to cope’ new facility has carried with it the important ‘small enough to care’ ethos of the old one. The excellent staff there handled the difficulties of recent times excellently as well. The perfect stepping stone for our two little ones, fond memories all round, and our deepest thanks!   September 2021

 "We have been overwhelmed by the level of commitment"

Croft House offers a wonderfully caring learning environment. We have been overwhelmed by the level of commitment to keeping our son safe and happy during his time at nursery. The staff are fabulous and extremely experienced. We particularly love the Forest school and outdoor areas Croft House provide. Croft House have helped to get our son ready for school and their attention to detail in preparing the children is great, for example having the local school uniforms available in the dressing up box to try on! We were very sad to leave and are looking forward to sending our daughter in January. September 2020

"I highly recommend this Nursery to anyone looking for something locally"

Leaving your little boy or girl would be a new parents first worry when finding the right nursery right ? Well not here !!! My little girl has been at the Nursery for just short of a Year now and all I can say is how welcome they all make her feel and each day she runs off sometimes not even saying bye to us and off to the Nursery worker in charge.  It really does put us at ease when leaving her and know that she has good qualified people around her all day long - All the staff cannot do enough and her developments since starting have been incredible to see each day we pick her up. The Nursery are always looking at further developments and ways of improving an already friendly home environment to make your little ones excited to go and making sure each individual room has plenty of space for your little ones to run riot! It goes a very long way to see everyone who works there enjoy what they are doing and to be part of a very successful team making this feel very much family oriented. I highly recommend this Nursery to anyone looking for something locally.

 "My boys thrived and I felt very happy with the loving care they were given"

Absolutely love Croft House Nursery, my children have such happy memories. I love how they made use of the local area, rolling Easter eggs down Rivington Pike, feeding Mr Squirrel, visiting the pet shop and library. Fantastic place with the most caring of staff. Truly home from home. My boys thrived and I felt very happy with the loving care they were given.  November 2017

"My children still remember the time they spent there"

I absolutely adored Croft House nursery and all it's staff, my children still remember the time they spent there, they loved forest school, the yearly duck races, fairy gardens, Rivington walks. You gave them such fantastic care and education that allowed them to thrive and blossom into the characters they are today.  October 2017

"Thank you Croft House for giving my boys the best start"

My eldest son still talks about Mrs Lomax, Miss Ros, Miss Sue, Miss Liz, Miss Kay, Aunty Betty.. he's nearly 26 and a Royal Marine! But those wonderful memories stay with us all. Thank you Croft House for giving my boys the best start.  October 2017

"I cannot recommend the nursery enough"

My daughter has just left and started school, she had the most fantastic experience at Croft house and so did we as parents. The care she had was so incredible, all the staff were absolutely wonderful and they are led by Janet who is so hands on and involved in every detail of the nursery. I cannot recommend the nursery enough, we are missing all the staff terribly!!!  September 2017

My little girl loves this place and the new site is absolutely stunning! October 2017

I have nothing but absolute love and respect for this outstanding, early years setting.

On a personal level it helped my children become confident, articulate well rounded individuals. Croft House set both children onto the best educational paths. Professionally I am in awe of the passion professionalism and the nurture all the Croft House team possess.  June 2017

"Education standards are amazing"

 ‘We love the fact that individual children are catered for within their own specific needs and that a lot of thought goes into this. Education standards are amazing….in the few weeks our child has been at Croft House his speech, numbers and even manners have vastly improved.’

"We couldn’t have wished for our child to have a better start than Croft House"

‘THANKYOU for everything and for being such a wonderful nursery! We couldn’t have wished for our child to have a better start than Croft House. She has thoroughly enjoyed her time here and she (and we!) will miss nursery lots…. the team, the adventures…… and the minibeasts.’

"You have provided our children with amazing opportunities to experience a wide range of activities"

‘As soon as we walked through the gates we knew we had chosen the perfect environment for our children to be loved, supported and to develop and grow. There’s an atmosphere, a vibe, throughout the entire setting, one that is welcoming, friendly and puts you completely at ease. You have provided our children with amazing opportunities to experience a wide range of activities – a particular favourite in our household is Forest School – our child was so excited to receive her personal invitation to attend the session.’

"Keep up the amazing work"

‘Please keep up the amazing work you do in making so many magical memories and building such fantastic imagination’.

"We really couldn’t ask for a better start for our son"

‘We cannot thank you enough for everything you have done for our child during his time at Croft House. It is a truly magical place and we feel very privileged for him to have spent his early precious times with you. We really couldn’t ask for a better start for our son and we know this has been a solid foundation of his learning journey. Thank you to every single member of staff. You have shown such care, compassion and understanding over the years our son has been with you.’

"I can’t thank you enough!"

‘Our child was just 4 months old when we entrusted her into your care, and what great care you have taken of her! All of you have played a part in moulding her into the fantastic little lady she is.. one that’s happy, sociable and ready for school. I can’t thank you enough! Janet your staff are an absolute credit to you and Croft House and I will miss you all massively.’

 "Croft House for us has been so much more than a nursery"

'We have felt honoured that our child has had the opportunity to grow and develop in such a welcoming and safe environment. Every single day we have been greeted by smiling, interested staff who we have felt reassured will always do their very best to care for our son. The staff have supported us through the sometimes rocky toddler years with encouragement and compassion. They have gone above and beyond at times to understand our son's needs and see life through his eyes. He has been able to experience so many new things and we have particularly valued the opportunity he has had to spend so much time outdoors, no matter what the weather. We feel he is ready for school having had a wonderful foundation in his learning journey.
Words can't really express our gratitude - Croft House for us has been so much more than a nursery.'

"His growth and abilities have exceeded all our expectations"

'We would like it to go on record our heartfelt thanks to every member of Croft House for making our son's journey the enjoyable, educational, safe and comfortable experience it has been. His growth and abilities have exceeded all our expectations and although we are very sad that this time with you is coming to an end we take comfort from the fact that he is extremely well prepared for his new adventure at primary school'.

"This was one of the best nurseries she had ever come across"

Having spoken with our son's new teacher in reception, I have to reiterate how impressed she was with Croft House when she came last month to observe him. Her comments were that this was one of the best nurseries she had ever come across - how advanced the children were in respect of numeracy and phonics, the provision for outdoor learning especially the forest school, and how happy the children were at Croft House. Her exact comments were that "she was like a child in a sweet shop" while looking round and was taking notes of ideas to put in place in her reception class.

Of course myself and my husband already know this, but this proves how ahead of the game you are here at Croft House, that a teacher from an Ofsted outstanding school would rave about the standard of care and education here, so much so that even the teaching assistants were raving about the nursery on our son's induction day!

I would like to thank you sincerely for the unwavering care, love and attention given to him since his first day back in 2012. He has made such great strides in his time here and I have no concerns about him adapting to school life given the great start he has had in the nursery, due to you and the wonderful ladies (every one of them!).

Thank you, thank you, thank you for everything you have all done for our son!

We just wanted to say a huge thank you - not just for the amazing care you have given our son, but also for giving him such varied life experiences, high standards of education, delicious meals and plenty of fun-times, and most importantly, confidence!
Your ladies have helped to shape him into a happy, sociable, clever little boy, perfectly ready to start school - for that you will have our eternal gratitude.

"We had no idea at the beginning of the year he had with you that our son would change and develop so significantly, in a positive way, to become the grown up boy he is today"

‘Our son has fitted into his new school perfectly and enjoys it a lot…..he has made new friends, is progressing nicely and has been moved up a year group in relation to his reading and phonic work. Both C. and us as a family miss Croft House dearly and that is mainly due to the support, comfort and education that he was allowed to experience throughout his time with you all. He was so fortunate to attend a nursery where they spent a lot of time outside learning. Croft House excels in relation to outside learning, woodland walks, allotment activities, pond dipping and the forest school system. Croft House should be extremely proud of the outdoor activities that it provides. Our son has developed in all aspects of his life due to the hard work, teaching and love and attention of the staff at Croft House Nursery We had no idea at the beginning of the year he had with you that our son would change and develop so significantly, in a positive way, to become the grown up boy he is today. We owe so much to Croft House Nursery staff and will never forget the impact you had on our family’.

‘We were so keen that our child should attend Croft House Nursery that we moved house just to be near!’
