What people are saying

I just wanted to let you know how much i appreciate the effort that a lot of your staff are making with my child at the moment. I could pick out many different moments where I have been in the morning by staff members. One member of staff has been fantastic with my child and myself. but I did want to say a huge thank you to another member of staff who helped me with my child on Friday and kept a close eye on her. taking pictures of her during the day to show me that she is happy at nursery when she calms down. its those small things (noticing that a mum is about to cry and providing her with reassurance!)  that make your nursery special.

I just wanted to comment on how lovely a member of staff is in your caterpillars room. I have had the opportunity to drop and pick my child up on a couple of occasions now and each time has been great and i have wanted to stay and play! your staff had a great attitude and seems really gentle and caring towards the children. they have a good knowledge on child development and are naturally interested in all of them. I feel really happy with my child's progress in caterpillars and I do feel this staff member is a positive role model for my child. I had such a lovely time picking my child up yesterday, I woke up thinking about it so I had to comment. If this member of staff can make me feel comfortable in a short space of time just by their presence they must be doing a good job with the children.
