"Cannot rate how amazing this nursery is from the management down. The manager and staff are friendly, approachable, knowledgable, loving and any concerns are raised and dealt with straight the way. I would recommend them 100% to any parent whose considering sending there child to this nursery. "

Laura G.


"The staff have been fantastic with my daughter building her confidence away from home, she’s now unrecognisable to the child she was, much more confident & so much happier, she loves being at preschool, she’s so proud of herself & comes home with stories of the days events, the staff keep you very well informed of what your child has been doing via a parent platform & in person. As a first school experience & away from mum & dad my daughter has excelled personally & is at a high level of expectation for her age, the staff really do care & go out of their way for each child treating them as individuals gearing learning experiences to gently focus on areas that the children need to gain confidence without singling anyone out. Thoroughly recommend, I’ll be sad when my daughter goes to school & leaves the preschool "
