Broadfield Nursery is purpose built within the Broadfield Children and Family Centre . The nursery is a community interest company owned by four directors in Broadfield Crawley. Our nursery has been specially designed to incorporate the needs of the children whilst ensuring compliance with current regulatory requirements, such as Health and Safety , Special Educational Needs and/or disabilities code of practice and Ofsted .
The nursery is a 40 place full day care nursery offering places for 3 months to 8 year olds. We are registered with Ofsted and therefore adhere to the regulations set down in the National Standards. We follow the adult to child ratios as set out under the Children’s Act 1989.
The nursery has an open plan interior, which is bright and spacious. The room is arranged into workshop areas, where a variety of experiences are available, for children to move around and investigate at their own stage of development. This encourages independence and allows children to develop their social skills, make decisions and explore through first-hand experience and through play.
The outside area consists of two secure play areas, which are solely for the use of the nursery. There are a variety of experiences for the children to participate in all year round and in all weathers. The outdoor space is organized effectively, creating a child friendly environment that enables children to explore and take risks while being appropriately supervised.
We are open from 8:00 till 18:00, Monday to Friday, for 51 weeks a year. We are closed on Bank Holidays, for a week over Christmas and for 5 days per year for staff training.
