About Us

We are a childcare provider, providing high quality childcare and have been established since 2005 with our first setting own by my mum. We pride ourselves on our close relationships with both the parents/carers and the children who attend our setting. This is our second setting.

Situated near buses, 2 parks and 2 schools, the children who attend Little Raye's Day Care will enjoy an environment of nearby ponds, parks and majestic trees that provide year round interest for everyone attending the setting.

The building has been divided into two main rooms, which are used by the babies, toddlers and preschoolers, we also have another small room which will be used as a quiet room. We have a kitchen where all meals are freshly prepared and cooked each day, the children lavatory, a computer area for the children and an office.

The baby room accommodates six babies who are cared for by qualified and experienced members of staff.
The toddler’s rooms accommodate eight toddlers who are cared for by qualified and experienced member of staff and 10 preschoolers. Garden space is small but we make good use of this.

We used Baby days app where you are able to see what your child has done, eaten, sleep times etc.
Although there are planned structured and adult-led activities, the time in the settings’ is spent learning through play. The social skills of sharing and turn taking flourishes here. The children have a home corner, a book corner, general play area, an art and craft area and also an area where children engage in activities, which promote craft, design and technology.
We also have sand/water area, which opens up numerous creative avenues where children develop a sense of imagination. Sand/water are two natural materials which most children used to extend their learning experiences.
We have a computer area where all the children can learn the basics of computer technology with the aid of software geared towards interactive exercises. Learning how to use the computer helps promote the understanding of technology as a valuable resource for all pursuits.
We have breakfast club where the children receive a nutrition breakfast before being taken to school and a hot nutrition meal after school.
We have a holiday club where the children have fun during the school holiday {art and craft, outing, baking etc.

Our daughter attended little Raye’s nursery for the last year. We could not recommend this setting enough! From the moment we went to look around and met Lorraine we knew our daughter would thrive there, which she did!

It is a small intimate setting. The staff are very good at updating you about what your child is doing during the day, often with pictures (which made my day!) It was so clear the deeply cared about my daughter and I know she was safe and happy there everyday.

They make a huge effort to celebrate different occasions which we loved - from black history to world book day and celebrating children’s birthdays and even a sports day!

Our daughter is only leaving because we are moving and it is with great sadness she will no longer attend!

Definitely recommend ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Lorraine and her team is amazing. They have a safe, warm and welcoming environment. It has been very hard for us to find a childminder we feel safe with, after meeting Lorraine, we had no doubts that she was the one. we appreciate her kindness and everything she does. We live in Beckenham and the setting is located in Croydon, we are more than happy to drive that extra mile knowing our child is in good care.

We are very happy yo have Teddy with us, he is such a charming character.
We promise to look after him to the highest standard and treat him as if he is one of our own children. At Gems we create a home away from home environment.
Thanks Sandra
