What our parents say

  • "I just wanted to thank you for giving my son a lovely time at nursery since he started with you. You have given him such a great start in his early years and we are really grateful to you. He is well prepared to continue into his next stage at school and has adapted well and is enjoying school so far. He has lots of happy memories with you all and talks about being at nursery a lot."
  • "Thank you so much for all the help you have given us with our son. The way in which you and the nursery have dealt with his diagnosis, development and care has been great and always inclusive. You all need to know what a beacon of excellence you have been for us – which we would have driven miles if needed – but was here on our doorstep! Thank you for always making us and our son feel welcome and never a burden."
  • "Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all the kindness, patience and care you show my son. He is so happy at nursery and smiles lots! Jodie, Shauni, Caitlin and Terrie, and all the baby room ladies are brilliant with him and it feels like we are a team, which is wonderful to a parent leaving their precious bundle in someone else’s hands. Thank you so much for making his first 3 months with you such a pleasure."
  • "Thank you so much for all of the care, fun and experiences you have given our child over the last two years, and for making nursery a wonderful experience for the family. She will miss you all."
