Testimonials

All staff at the nursery are warm and welcoming. The nursery is extremely supportive of the needs of working parents and we always feel included. All staff have the children at the forefront of their minds and this has shown in the progress our child has made. A fabulous and caring environment that we are extremely pleased with.

I was really pleased with what I thought was a very nice gradual settling in process, by going in at different times of the day, she was well prepared for the first day. The Key Person is amazing with our child, everyday we still feel that welcoming environment.

We can see our child is extremely happy in the nursery and this is a  huge comfort that we know she is in a safe place with lots of care. We are exceptionally happy with the standard of care, the staff, the surroundings and the way that our child has settled in. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the nursery to other families.

Welfare
The health and safety of all the children are of fundamental importance. We aim to provide a secure and pleasant environment for everyone. We practice a whole range of safety policies and procedures. Your child is allocated a ‘Key Person’ within their room, who is responsible for your child’s well being, ensuring your child feels individual, secure and cherished while they are away from home.
