A woman with 26 years in the child care industry has launched an affordable pay-as-you go crèche and plans to soon open a fully fledged nursery.
Jasmin Gregitis, who lives in Woodhall Farm, launched the crèche at Grovehill’s Youth Centre in Stevenage Rise last week.
It offers child care slots of up to two hours for children aged up to five years old.
Jasmin, a mum of two sons, is just waiting for the green light from Ofsted before she can launch Robin’s Nest Children’s Nursery, which will provide all day care.
She said: “Parents will only pay for the time their child attends. You don’t have to pay during the holidays or on sick days.
“We feel very strongly that we want to help and support parents and with the community centre helping me start up as a new business with lower rates it means that I can reflect that in my prices.”
So far around 15 children have attended the crèche and parents have been getting to know staff through free stay and play sessions.
“We don’t charge for the settling in sessions,” said Jasmin “because we know the biggest thing you are ever going to do is leave your child in someone else’s care.”
The businesswoman has been supported in her new venture by the committee at Grovehill Community Centre.
“A big thank you from me to Grovehill Community Centre,” said Jasmin.
