What our customers say…
Isabella started at the nursery just over a year ago and has come on in leaps and bounds. She is developing into a confident little girl with the ability to share and play with others. I have watched her develop in many areas and am confident the nursery has a lot to do with that. The staff are friendly and professional and consistently go out of their way to help and improve. I couldnâ€™t be happier with my choice of nursery.
- Isabella's mum
It is a wonderful to feel positive that our child is not only looked after but he is loved in such safe and caring and fun environment by such dedicated staff.

The staff at the nursery are amazing, they are so lovely and welcoming which I think is so very important. My daughter attended another nursery previously and it didn't compare to Just Learning at all
Oliverâ€™s nursery years have now come to an end sadly, and we would like to thank you all for the hard work, dedication, support and encouragement that you have given to Oliver over the last year
