"Really happy with the care of our children but only drops a star due to poor communication "

"The staff, in particular in the baby and toddler room are absolutely fantastic, they’re caring, kind and compassionate and it’s a really welcoming and nurturing environment. Currently, the preschool room is not as it should be, there is not enough focus on learning such as writing their name and learning basic phonics. Once a room leader is appointed and there is more structure, as when Shannon ran the room, it will be fab! Also feel that at times the manager is not knowledgeable enough and puts their child above the children that attend the nursery. The area manager is great and answers questions quickly and professionally."
