"Kind and friendly staff, great activities for your child to learn and grow. Lots of different varieties of food provided by chef. All ladies in babies, bombos 2 and 2-3 (only ones I’ve met so far) have always been so kind and communicative with me. Ladies on reception are very helpful kind and friendly too. Thanks for all your help with my boy so far he adores nursery! "

"All the staff are wonderful and they really know my children. I have complete confidence in the team at Meridian. I appreciate that they call to let me know if one of my children is unusually unsettled, or has a fall etc. The invoicing team aren't as great and there seem to be regular errors, the consistent chasing for payment without following up/amending errors. "
