" This is the first nursery that I have used and i can't tell you how impressed i am. The staff are just fantastic with endless enthusiasm and boundless energy, the management team extremely flexible and go out of their way to accommodate, all the staff know the children's names whether they are in their room or not, a huge choice of activities inside and outside, the atmosphere and welcome is great and you only have to look at the children to know that they love being there. We are about to move house and am very happy to get up a little earlier to drive that bit further! Thank you! "

" SO MANY THINGS! I think the staff are absolutely fantastic. I love the wonderful warm smiley greeting we receive every day - this makes my child feel really welcome (I watch for the smile spreading across her face when she is first greeted), and really sets me up for the day too. I know that she will get lots of cuddles and affection, that she will get messy and have heaps of fun. I know that the staff talk to children in a lovely way, respecting them as little individuals and involving them in decisions without rushing them about too much. The activities on offer are excellent - I love that they get to spend so much time outside. The nursery outside play area is great, and the surrounding grounds offer so much in terms of things to see on walks, from the woods, the open grassy space, the fields, etc, and it also gives children the opportunity to learn about road safety in a relatively quiet place, meaning they can learn without being overwhelmed by zooming cars and buses. I love to see the little note about what she ate during the day, and feel so reassured to know that she is getting a very good diet of fresh food and lots of variety to explore different tastes (and to ensure that she is getting all the important nutrients she needs). I love that the kids can go and help choose fish from the fish van - I love that the meat is from a butchery and not just from Tescos. A lovely nursery full of lovely people. "
