Abingdon Kindergarten Ltd - North Court Abingdon, Oxfordshire
My daughter has only been at the nursery three weeks, but I'm very happy I chose this setting for her. The staff are excellent, really friendly and very good with the children. They give you detailed updates on what your child has been doing that day. It's lovely all the staff know my daughter's name even if they are not in her room. The facilities are excellent and activities vary all the time. The garden is superb, perfect for all kids. I'm very glad I chose this nursery for my daughter.

Topsie Rabbit Kindergarten Ltd Gillingham, Dorset
It is my pleasure to recommend this nursery. Every nursery assistant shows a great joy to work, is really patient and kind. They show creative ways of children's playtime and teaching techniques. They make sure that the children are safe at all times and Topsie makes a wonderful job of effectively communicating with parents and helps them to feel more comfortable with their children's preschool experience. Topsie cares deeply about every child's education and emotional stability. I am happy to highly recommend Topsie Rabbit as a perfect place for your child.

Oaklands Day Nursery - (Neston) Neston, Cheshire
My son attended Oaklands Day Nursery, the staff were so supportive and created a fantastic, stimulating environment for my son. He adored going to nursery and I strongly believe that Oaklands gave him the best foundations to start his school life. The food my son was given was of excellent quality and was well balanced. The nursery is kept spotless and first impressions as you go into this nursery are excellent. I highly recommend.

Teddies Nurseries Bracknell Bracknell, Berkshire
Excellent nursery-my children have flourished
The staff are so friendly and really dedicated to your children's specific needs. I've enjoyed coming in every day and feel totally comfortable with my children in their care. The learning journeys are easily accessible at all times and I love reading how they are getting on. The one thing is the outdoor space isn't massive but the staff ensure a rotation system for the children and they make brilliant use of the space.

Market Day Nursery London
My foster daughter has a chromosome disorder which limits her mobility, speech and development. Market Nursery embraced her as an individual without making her feel 'different'. They have worked alongside myself and other medical professionals without making it feel like a burden or hindrance. My foster daughter has gone from a screaming two year old, that didn't want anyone to touch her to a confident three year old, happy and social.

My little boy has developed considerable both socially and mentally since starting at Asquith Nurseries a little over 1 year ago. Although apprehensive at first, he is now extremely happy to attend everyday and comes home happy, motivated and smiling. He often talks about the exciting activities he has participated in and seems to really love his key worker and the nursery staff in general. Overall I am extremely impressed and happy with every aspect of Asquith. Thank you.

Flying Start @ Cornwall College - Camborne Redruth, Cornwall
Happy child, happy Mum!!!
My daughter has been at the nursery from 9 months (she's now 3). As a first time Mum going back to work, the staff were happy to work with me on a phased introduction to the nursery (I say me because my daughter was happy and settled from day one!!). The team also managed to accommodate a dairy intolerance for the first 12 months, and made special efforts to ensure, as far as possible she had the same as her peers. She has always been happy to go to nursery and some days I have to remind her to come back and give me a kiss as she's already charging off to play. For a working mum, with the usual guilt complex, knowing that she is in a setting in which she's stimulated, got access to lots of space and fantastic care from both her key worker and the wider team has really helped.
