About Us

“We love that there is an activity everyday to give the kids a new experience… We really feel like she is getting so much out of her time at Number 9. We know our child is loved and cared for and couldn’t ask for more.”

From Rosie C

We are a husband and wife team who are passionate to support families in Croydon and be a part of a nursery which puts children first and recognises each child as an individual.

Number 9 was created as bespoke independent nursery and our devotion is to create a loving home-from-home environment where children are free to explore and engage their imaginations.

I have worked with children all my life and supporting children’s development is my passion. I have lots of experience in many roles, including being a Head Teacher of a Primary School, however my dream has always been to open my own beautiful Day Nursery.

We provide a safe, fun and welcoming environment with lots of opportunities to ensure children reach their full potential whilst being nurtured both socially and emotionally.

At Number 9 The Nursery we care for children aged from 3 months to 5 years and we are open 7.30am to 6.00pm, 51 weeks of the year.

Children attending our nursery have wonderful opportunities to participate in Sing and Sign, Baby Ballet, Awake and Shake, French, Yoga and Pro-Star Sports.

Come and join our Number 9 Family!
