Parent Reviews

V, F

I have two children in the nursery in different rooms. All the staff are extremely caring and professional. My children love coming to nursery, have lots of friends and are comfortable with the staff. They are developing the skills they need to learn and socialise. It is a great nursery.

L,M

We have had a very positive experience with this nursery. Our daughter has settled well, and enjoys attending. Staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. Would totally recommend.

P, G

I can’t fault Happitots on anything. All the staff are great with updates on my learning port to show interaction each day/week. My little girl has come on loads since joining the nursery since she was 7 months old.

Outdoors and Nature

We love to get outside at Happitots Garrowhill! We have 2 secure gardens which are designed and appropriately equipped for each age group. Our babies have a separate outdoor play area that has resources to promote sensory & motor skills. As well as access to our fabulous outdoor play areas, children of all ages enjoy regular walks in the local area. Our youngest children are often seen out in our triple buggies enjoying the fresh air, sights and sounds of the local community.

We use Walkodile Child Safety Systems and high visibility vests to keep children safe when out on trips away from the nursery. We are lucky enough to have access to our own Happitots area within the grounds of Garrowhill Park which offers extensive space and learning opportunities to our older children.

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