My two girls have both been through this Creche since they were 2 years old, they have always received the most wonderful care and I can honestly say every teacher there is amazing. They take the time to get to know your child, finding out their interests and strengths and implementing these within the Crèche environment. The Crèche itself is well run and I have been fortunate enough to meet some very lovely Mums ands Dads, a real community.

I had moved my eldest from another local crèche to KNCC and the decision to move was easy on my first visit with my daughter. I have now had the pleasure of have both of my girls attend KNCC. Both of them have enjoyed the staff of Crèche who are generous and nurturing - a real community feel with parents and caregivers encouraged to get involved. It's been a wonderful place for my girls.
