We are proud to announce our new nursery will be opening soon in Crook.

The baby

An early learning nursery for little people

Choosing the right ‘Ofsted Approved’ nursery for your child can be a daunting task; thankfully, many of our staff can empathise, having experienced this emotional event themselves.  Rest assured we are here to ensure a smooth transition, and should you choose ‘Curious Minds’ your child truly could not be better cared for.

A note from Natalie

Nursery Manager

I have been working in nurseries for 17 years and gained a vast amount of experience working with children 0-5 years.  I consider myself to be deeply passionate about providing children with the best possible learning environment, enabling successful outcomes for all children. My natural enthusiasm supports my ability to teach, inspire and motivate others within my role.

I’ve known for many years that the way we educate children has to change and this was my opportunity to not get caught up in traditions. To equip this spectacular building with resources and equipment both the children and building deserved. Plastic was not on my radar. The nursery is filled with love, care and attention to detail, and what we know as ‘curiosities’.

I currently hold a Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care and Children and Young People’s Services. I also hold NVQ Level 4 in Children’s Care, Learning and Development.

I look forward to inspiring your child, enabling them to learn through play. As a parent myself, I understand how important partnerships with parents is and look forward to building this relationship up with you as a family.
