A message from the manager

My name is Naomi I am the manager here at the Holcroft community nursery, I have 8 years experience working in nurseries and thoroughly enjoy my work here! Who doesn’t want to go to work every day with beautiful happy faces. Here at Holcroft we have a very child centred approach, we take the children’s interest and lead them into the curriculum with their interest as the focus, we believe it’s a great way for children to be engaged and learn.

We look forward to meeting new children and families so please feel free to call to view our great Nursery
