Phone: contact number is not available for new enrolments yet
Ages of children: Licensed to care for children from infancy
Group / Centre Size: The centre operates on a small and personal scale for children and families. It is licensed for 50 or fewer children. It is what we call a 'boutique' early childhood centre.
Qualified teaching staff: 80% to 100% of teaching staff are qualified teachers (according to funding claimed from the Ministry of Education, last updated beginning of 2020).
Shows Children that Men Can Teach and Care for Young Children Too: In 2019 the teaching team was, known to have been usually or all of the time, women only. (Note that it is best to have gender balance with children being taught and cared for by both men and women. In Home-based ECE this criterion relates to visiting teachers only)
Is this service HIGHLY Parent Rated?: THIS SERVICE CANNOT YET BE CLASSIFIED AS A HIGHLY RATED SERVICE. (To be so it needs to have a number of recent positive reviews - at least 5 positive if a small centre, or 10 if a mega-centre or a home-based service)
COMPLIANCE warning: It has a clean record. It's licence was not downgraded by the Ministry of Education in 2019 or 2020 as far as we know (if you want to check on its history before 2019 go to more info below)
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.
