My understanding, as a native UK English speaker, is that a nursery is
somewhere that a child attends regularly, a pre-school type place. A
creche is somewhere that looks after young children for occasional
short-term periods, such as in a shopping centre or a university. Where
a child can be left whilst the parent does something else, such as
shopping or attends a lecture.
