Staff are lovely and friendly, very welcoming towards parents and children. My son thoroughly enjoys nursery and has learnt so much since being there.

– Lauren, Parent (Google Review)

My grandson has been going to this nursery for 1 year. It was a difficult transition for him due to covid and not wanting to leave his mummy. It took a lot of patience from all the staff for months to settle him and I can’t thank each and everyone enough for their patience and kindness to our boy and to us as a family . The staff at this nursery go above and beyond for the children in their care and work with families to reach their goals. .

I cannot rate this nursery highly enough. The staff are extremely considerate, gentle and caring and helped my son through a long settling period with as little distress as possible. A year on, he is delighted to go to nursery and talks about the staff and other children fondly. Outside play is really important to us a family and weโ€™re delighted that the children spend plenty of time in the garden in all weather!
