Dear parents/carers

We have been following the current situation very closely, taking guidance from the Government, NHS, Public Health England and the local authority.

Following the recent PM statement, our pre-school nurseries and out of school clubs at Edleston Primary and Audlem St James’ C.E Primary School will have to close at 6pm on Friday 20th March until further notice.

The house setting - 129 Gainsborough Road Crewe, CW2 7PJ is registered as Childcare on Domestic Premises and is not classed as a Nursery.  We have space for 20 children.  We will stay open (until advised not to or until we do not have enough staff) and offer our places to all children from all 3 settings whose parents are classed as critical or key workers.  These places are based on a first-come first-served basis and we need to know immediately who require our services so that we can make provision. 


With regards to payment - please discuss with your employer if you are able to work from home and if you will receive full payment.

We did not want to close any of our settings and we will still have overheads and staff wages to pay.  However, if you do struggle financially and can provide evidence from your employer that you will not receive pay, we are happy to discuss your situation on an individual basis.

We hope the offer of our Childcare on Domestic premises setting to critical or key workers will be of some help.

These are challenging times; we hope you all stay healthy and we look forward to seeing everyone again when the Government advises we can re-open fully.

Best wishes


Lynsey Taylor
