Parent Reviews

Paula

Whenever I am in this nursery, the staff to be welcoming and very friendly. The management team also make a conscious effort to speak to everyone that comes through the door which is really good too. My stepdaughter is always talking about her time there, and is learning a lot more than I ever did at nursery.

Craig, B

Both of my children have attended nursery since they were babies. Most of the staff have been there since my 10 year old was 6 months, which says a lot. The nursery caters to individual families, and are always looking for feedback on ways to improve. I highly recommend this nursery!

E, S

All of the staff are professional and caring. They have a genuine interest in the children, and their friendships with their peers. My child looks forward to going to preschool every morning. Activities are of a great variety. Management are great too. Very pleased parent!
