What our parents say about us

As both a parent and teacher I thought long and hard about which nursery setting I wanted my son to attend. I managed to find a nursery that was warm, inviting and stimulating, which provided a safe, happy and loving environment. The management and staff are skilled in engaging actively with the children, allowing them to create, explore and learn in fun ways. My son has developed immensely since being in the care of the fantastic staff who have nurtured him for 2 years. He absolutely loves nursery and runs in each day! I would thoroughly recommend the nursery to any parent. 

From the moment my daughter started this nursery until she left it has been a completely positive experience.  
My daughter has learnt so much and made so many friends. The teachers (auntie's) have been so influentialto her and this will stay with her for life.  They work sohard for the children and are genuinly invested in each child.  Each day when i picked her up she would tell me of all of the fun activities she had done that day and would come home with endless bits of art work and other things she had made.  She was so excited to go in each day.  She has had such a great start to her education by attending this nursery and we couldn't be happier.
