"I referred my friend as I am so happy with the service. Great staff who make you feel like you’re leaving your baby with family. "

"Whilst we have no issues with the nursery or the service it provides we do have concerns over the recent staffing issues. We dont feel that we should have to be put in a situation where we have to take time off work when we have paid for the nursery to provide childcare for us and that there should be a stronger contingency plan in place to avoid further repeats."
