Parent Reviews

M H, Current Parent

My son has been attending Happitots Boddam since he was 15 months old and has had the experience of each room as he has progressed through the nursery. I can honestly say I would highly recommend, the support and care my son has received has been more than I could have asked. He experiences a range of different activities throughout the day which have helped so much with his development, for a long time my son struggled with his speech and the staff have been super on the ball with supporting him and he has come on leaps and bounds. I always receive a detailed report at the end of the day regarding his food intake, his toileting needs, the activities he has been up to and his behaviour throughout the day.
Anytime I have ever had an issue it has been addressed and sorted from management as soon as.
My son has always struggled whenever I have left him with anyone other than me, but that little boy runs into nursery everyday he’s in with the biggest smile on his face.

Daniel A, Current Parent

Very well-run nursery. Both of my children love going to the nursery. Staff and management very helpful and welcoming. Staff always welcome you into the building and tell you what the children have been up to that day.

Amanda S, Current Parent

Both my three year old and one year old attend Happitots Nursery Boddam and have done since they were nine months old. They attend regularly and now on weekends even ask if they can go to nursery. I think that says a huge amount about how much of a positive impact the staff have on our children. They absolutely love them all and enjoy every second of being with their nursery family.

Outdoors and Nature

We love to get outside here at Happitots Boddam! Great use is made of our gardens, each of which is dedicated to different stages of development.

Our Babies can use a range of age-appropriate resources including a slide and trampoline. We have a messy mud kitchen and willow area which our Toddlers love playing in, zooming about on bikes and much more! There is also a large outdoor area that our pre-schoolers can access directly.

This area includes a concrete area for physical games, a grass area for active play, a mud kitchen for exploring, large climbing apparatus, a bug hotel, natural materials for construction and exploring, and a vegetable and flower garden where the children plant, observe and help grow vegetables and flowers.

We regularly take children out in our local community and offer opportunities for our children to visit the Local Park and beach. It is our belief that there is no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing, so we ask that parents provide their children with appropriate clothing for all types of weather.

We are committed to being an environmentally friendly nursery, making changes wherever we can in order to make the world a cleaner place! At Happitots Boddam Nursery we are committed to teaching our children about their environment and the effect we have on it in our day to day lives.
