Staff at the nursery are always willing to help and caring. The all inclusive pricing is good, food fresh and varied. The opening hours are excellent, which gives parents more flexibility. Parents are given a review at the end of the day which is comprehensive.

Asquith Harpenden Day Nursery Harpenden, Hertfordshire
Posted: 19 hours ago by Laura B (Mother of 2 year old son)
I can't recommend this nursery highly enough. The staff are, without exception wonderful with the children. No two days are the same, they vary the activities constantly with lots of time in the lovely garden play area, fortnightly music classes, occasional trips to the train station, duck pond etc. There are also regular theme days that the children love getting involved in. The nursery management are always innovating. Parents are kept very involved and each day there are photos on TV screens in the evening to show the days activities. Great variety and balance in the food too. My son eats every time at nursery, definitely not the case at home!

Asquith Springfields Pre-School & Day Nursery Lichfield, Staffordshire
Posted: 20 hours ago by Sharon Bedlow (Mother of 4 year old pre-schooler & 9 year old previious attendee)
As my son leaves pre-school for his primary school adventure, this is a sad but exciting time! This is the end of an era for our family, as my daughter attended Springfields for 2 1/2 years also and we are all sad to be leaving such wonderful staff and friends behind" I cannot recommend the nursery enough, the experience we have all shared over the years has been amazing and I genuinely feel my children are 'better little people' for it. Thank you Springfields - especially the pre-school staff. You have all been amazing!

Chadwell St Mary Day Nursery Ltd Grays, Essex
Posted: 21 hours ago by Victoria Clarke (Mother of 3 year old son)
I have been using this nursery for nearly 6 years (my older son is now 6 1/2 years) and it has been consistently excellent during this time. The staff are excellent with my child, encouraging his development and learning. The nursery encourages parents engagement in the nursery, and is well run by managers. The food is 'home cooked' and nutritional. In the past it provided my older son with a good grounding for school and made the transition easy. I would recommend this nursery to anyone!

Asquith Milford Day Nursery & Pre-School Stafford, Staffordshire
Posted: 21 hours ago by Jo-Jo Thompson (Mother of 2 year old daughter)
The staff and children at Milford welcomed Ava-Mae with open arms. The nursery has been like a second home to her, in fact it is often a struggle to get her out at night as she is having so much fun. Her learning has excelled during her time at Asquith and I cannot thank the staff enough for their efforts. A fabulous nursery, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Asquith Heathrow Day Nursery West Drayton, London
Posted: 22 hours ago by Caroline Mantle (Mother of 4 year old girl)
I would thoroughly recommend Heathrow Day Nursery. My daughter loves it here. The staff are friendly and helpful and welcoming to the children. They have a wonderful setting at the Old Vicarage with a superb pre-school room with lots of resources and facilities, and a wonderful garden with teepee/wigwam, and a rural area. The children do lots of varied activities and themed events e.g making flags for the winter Olympics and world cup, celebrating mothers day, Easter, Fathers Day, Valentines, and made a Chinese dragon for new year etc.

Asquith Kirkby Day Nursery Liverpool, Merseyside
Posted: 23 hours ago by Lisa Williams (Mother of 3 year old girl)
It is a daunting process, finding a nursery to look after the most precious thing in your life. I can honestly say without a doubt we found that in Asquith Kirby. The staff there welcomed our daughter with open arms and encouraged her to flourish and grow into the confident little girl that she is today. The staff are faultless, always professional, loving and considerate. Nothing is too much trouble. Thank you for the last 3 years of looking after our little world.

Trinity Childcare London
Posted: 23 hours ago by Anja (Parent)
I cannot recommend this nursery enough. The carers and management are so great and I feel so comfortable that my son is looked after well and happy. His learning has come on leaps and bounds compared to his last nursery and he is thriving in this lovely little nursery with all his friends. It can look a little chaotic at first with the big church hall but looks are deceiving as they run a very structured and good nursery in which children really thrive. Big thumbs up!
