We are a multi-award winning set of small, unique, family style pre-schools. We are not a large corporate chain and pride ourselves in the partnerships that we have locally. Across our pre-schools we have won the Top 20 in the UK and London for small nurseries, recommended by parents. We have achieved the Early Years Quality Mark Award for as many years as we can remember! We achieved the Gold speech and language award, gained accreditation for Interactive Music Making and most recently won the national award from NDNA for Learning and Play! We will never rest though because we do as we teach our Crafty Wizards, we believe in the 'power of yet' and strive to offer better and learn more!
We were spell-bound to win the national award for Play and Learning. This involved hefty paperwork and evidence along with a nearly one hour long interview with NDNA panellists. There was tough competition nationally from large chains and nurseries attached to Universities. The team always works hard, in offering quality play opportunities for our Crafty Wizards. Our team train hard because we believe that learning never ends. We have staff that have been trained and are training in Forest School, Interactive Music Making, music Boogie Mites, Makaton and so so much more!
It is our aim to provide children with a creative, imaginative and stimulating environment where they are happy, engaged, challenged, supported, nurtured and safe.
We think art, craft, creativity and imagination should be at the centre of a child's learning. Everyday we will strive to make your child's learning exciting through encouraging vibrant creativity and imagination. We have a mix of free play and adult focused activities and offer experiences to learn through all the EYFS areas of learning. All our permanent staff are community paediatrics first aid trained. Our staff hold a range of skills such as Interactive Music Making (accredited), Forest school trained (qualified), early communication trained to ensure that our Crafty Wizards interests and needs are nurtured.

I am extremely proud that Crafty Wizards Pre-Schools has done so well.
Crafty Wizards management and their teams continue the drive to make
learning magical through creativity. It is heart warming to read the hundreds of reviews that we now have from parents and carers that value the quality of learning and care we provide in Eltham and New Eltham. As a small set of pre-schools, created by a Qualified teacher who has always lived in Eltham, we work tirelessly making positive partnerships with parents and our local community. We love our unique wizarding themed pre-school with and how we specialise in 2 - 5 year olds on a personal basis. Thank you again parent and carers because without your or your children there would be no magic!'
