Do you want more parents to access your services?

Do you want to ensure that families most in need can attend?

Do you want pro-active crèche workers who always work hard to provide a positive early education experience?

The 1st Place Crèche is For You.

The 1st Place crèche service was established in 2005. Our skilled Early Education staff have worked successfully with young mums, children with special needs, families with English as a second language and children who have never before separated from their parents.

We do have a purpose built crèche on site that can be used with our crèche staff (rental of room is extra to staff booking). We are also able to travel to other venues subject to risk assessment / agreement. We do require at least a week’s notice but we will always do our best to help if at all possible.

We Are Trusted by Well Known Organisations

Our crèche service runs across the borough of Southwark and beyond, working with other Children’s Centres, and partners such as Birkbeck College, The Young Vic and Unicorn Theatres. We have a reputation for reliability, consistently high quality, fun and support – a crèche service which families ask for again and again.

All 1st Place crèche workers are fully inducted in crèche provision and all receive regular supervision. We go far beyond the usual standard.
