Tiny Tigers Day Nursery Ltd are fantastic. They provide a homely environment and encourage good family values. We have seen the children form strong bonds and friendships. The activities available always change and respond to the needs and interests of the children. Extra activities such as such as French lessons and zoo labs have been a big success. We looked at the kept caterpillars and then released the butterflies once they hatched. The nursery also gives parents so much flexibility and accepts in today's world, parents need to work. They have always tried to help and adapt to allow us to meet work commitments - which has been fantastic. I would highly recommend this nursery and environment for looking after your child.

Our daughter settled into Fortview really quickly and we believe this is a reflection on how good the nursery is. The staff take a genuine interest in the children and seem to enjoy their roles - which, from a parent's point of view, this is so important. Such a sweet little nursery - well managed, well run and well taken care of. Thank you.

When my daughter started she was a little upset as she missed her mummy. The nursery staff made her feel very welcome. She now really enjoys going to Seashells and loves the staff. The manager is very helpful, always there to help if I'm having trouble getting my daughter to nursery.

My son was previously looked after by a nanny until he was 3 years old. Subsequent to this, we took the decision to send him to Holland Park Pre-Prep School, referred to us by a good friend. The teachers were excellent at transitioning our son to nursery. He settled very well with their help and we were kept informed of his progress at that time. Since he has been attending the school, we have seen a big positive difference in him. His confidence has grown, his communication skills improved and he has been able to come out of his shell. We would like to thank everyone at the school for their help, through this significant change in his life.

Cannot praise this nursery enough. From the moment I walked in, I felt welcome and have done every since. The staff are very warm and welcoming. I feel comfortable leaving my baby here knowing he is well looked after. He clearly thrives in the environment.

My son appears happy, confident and keen to engage with all aspects of his day in nursery. He surprises me with increasing evidence of socialising skills and polite behaviour (he is only 3). The nursery staff communicate well and engage with my husband and I to optimise care and the learning journey my son is on. As a parent, I am pleased with my choice of nursery and I would definitely recommend IntoPlay Day Nursery @ Barnwood to any parent.

both my children have attended and loved this nursery. It is caring and supportive but also encourages independent play, learning, and development. Both my children felt safe here and responded well to the staff and ate well from a varied menu. My daughter (3) speaks basic French because of this nursery and like my son (now 5 and in Yr 1 at school) has a strong independent foundation for their education.

My son attended Discovery Nursery for 18 months before moving onto school and I cannot praise them highly enough!

The staff are all lovely, friendly, nurturing, welcoming and genuinely interested in the children that attend the nursery and supporting their development. The nursery provides such a range of learning and development opportunities, whilst always keeping things fun and interesting. My son absolutely loved being there!

The nursery manager and owner are both excellent and things were always well organised. The nursery offers great communication with parents through each child having diaries, emails, newsletters, their website and key staff members always being present during pick up and drop off times.

I would highly recommend this nursery to any parent.

Very caring staff when my child didn't settle immediately. She was there for 2 1/2 years. She didn't want to leave when it was time to start school! She started learning to read and write there, as well as doing lots of fun activities and spending a lot of time playing outside. The French lessons were a brilliant extra. Communication with parents was good and the admin procedures all ran smoothly.

As a first time mother, finding a nursery for my daughter was a daunting task. Having visited several local nurseries, I eventually had my visit to Kids 1st Sunderland. We were met with a warm welcome and enthusiastic staff. This paired with excellent facilities made my decision easy. My daughter had a fantastic intro week before starting properly and seems to love nursery. Knowing she is in safe, qualified hands enables me to relax about leaving my baby in the care of three others. I would not hesitate to recommend.

The nursery's setting is great and the staff are very friendly. My son's adaptation went well, probably because of his key person system that I like very much - now my son loves coming to the nursery and I can see each day he is making a lot of progress there!

My daughter has recently started nursery and from the beginning, we have received such a positive welcome. It's been so refreshing that they were happy and flexible to work around my partners shift pattern and over the past 4 weeks, my daughter has begun to settle well in her group and has begun to form lovely relationships with all the staff.
All the staff I have been in contact with so far have been helpful and caring which is such a relief as I know she will be in safe hands. It is also lovely that the manager is so hands-on with all the children and knows them personally. All in all, it has been a thoroughly enjoyable experience for both my daughter and myself so far.

I've had two children in from 9 months until school. I am very impressed with the detail used to record the development of my children every day. The activities are always very varied with lots of outdoor play, even in winter. The food menu always looks very healthy and delicious. They have often asked me to make some of the food at home!
The key person has alway been devoted to both my children and I feel that they really do care. The security is very good with a bolted gate and door buzzer. I would highly recommend the nursery to everyone.

The start of our second child at nursery has been a very easy process. He has settled in well and all the staff have been excellent. The only comment I would make is that I don't see our key person and much, but this is also because I don't do as many drop offs and pick ups as I used to - thanks to dad!

I am pleased that my baby is developing well at the nursery. I have found that the staff are very knowledgeable about the child's development and actually guide and help me ensure that milestones are reached and how to support/help the baby achieve them. This nursery has surpassed my expectations and my baby has established very strong bonds with the staff which makes it easier for me to work knowing she is well looked after.

From the first time I walked into Banana Moon Day Nursery Altrincham with our son, I could feel the warm and friendly atmosphere. The staff go above and beyond to make him feel part of the family and have been very accommodating of our personal situation. We moved to Banana Moon Day Nursery Altrincham from another nursery and were worried as to how our son would settle in, but thanks to everyone there, it's been an easy transition and we're so glad we made the move. We would recommend Banana Moon Day Nursery Altrincham to anyone!
