Our son has been going to IntoPlay for approximately 8 months now. From the very first moment he set foot in the door during our initial visit, he looked very relaxed, and it was due to this that we immediately felt it was the right setting for him. The staff are amazing with him and he clearly adores them. We use our 15 hours allowance to send our son for two days per week. We pay a top up, for any extra fees required to keep him there for a full day. On the days he attends, he leaps out of bed and is so excited that he is going to school. He has really enjoyed his experience at the nursery and it's a shame for him that it's coming to an end as he is moving on to school. The range of activities provided are vast, they have some great areas for the children to play and explore and they've helped develop our son into a nice, polite, confident little boy. I cannot recommend this nursery highly enough.

Thank you for your kind words! He will be missed when school time comes :)

My daughter has settled really well at this nursery and I am so glad I have chosen it. They helped my anxiety about leaving her. The settling process included a home visit which was very reassuring. They have a great communication book and really care about the children in their care. Staff, children and parents are always happy at the site. I know my daughter is safe there. I watch my daughter learning every day through the nurturing environment and she has a great relationship with her buddies.

Excellent nursery! My son has been at the city site for 2 years and he has learnt a lot throughout that time. I am impressed, especially with his literacy and numeracy. Staff and management are always there to listen and help. Pleasant environment and appropriate care provided. Thank you all for the fantastic care given.
Highly recommended!

I can not speak highly enough of this fabulous nursery!

The building and grounds are always immaculate, the atmosphere as soon as you walk in is warm and friendly, beautiful displays of the children's having fun and different projects going on.

Each room has its own dedicated outdoor area which is just perfect for safe outdoor fun. The variety of activities the children do is very impressive. The 5 week menu 's that are available for parents to take away sound super varied, nutritious and delicious.

The things that really makes this establishment tick is the wonderful staff, the relationships you can see they have with the little ones, my daughter absolutely adores the girls in her room that care for her. Knowing whilst I am at work my child is in such good hands is the best feeling a mum can have!

Thanks Kids 1st!

My daughter started at Filkins in December 2015. This was just after her 2nd birthday following the closure of her previous nursery. My daughter settled into Filkins really well and I instantly felt at ease thanks to the reassurance of the staff. My daughter is so happy at Filkins and I love everything about the nursery!
The staff are amazing and me and my daughter have a great relationship with her key carer. The staff are so creative with the activities they plan for the children and I love being updated whilst sat at my desk at work through tapestry. Really puts a smile on my face!

We are really pleased with our child's progress. At first, she was very unsure and upset but the staff were very good at reassuring us both. She now says she loves school and looks forward to going each time. The activities they do seem varied and interesting. I like the food they offer.

Amazing staff, my little boy started at 6 months and with their support he's grown in to an independent, caring and adventurous toddler. The ladies at the nursery have become more like friends, than his day to day carers. He loves going to the nursery, learning new things and making new friends. I struggle to get him to leave. Keep up the good work!

Both children have attended Tiny Footsteps Day Nursery, and have both very much enjoyed their experience there. The staff are extremely friendly, nurturing and are very good at keeping me updated on my child's progress. I have always felt that my child is in a safe pair of hands, in a happy and fun environment.
It is a large area space with plenty of areas of interest, where my child can play and learn. The nursery has also good links with the local primary school, and has prepared my eldest well for their transition to school.

Our son has been attending Clarence House since he was 13 months.
Telephone communication with the nursery has been very efficient, both for administrative purposes and for more personal issues such as whether or not he is still asleep at close to pick up time.
Face-to-face communication is also excellent: staff are quick to ask about him and give feedback about how his time with them has been.
Settling in time was arranged flexibly so that staff could gauge how ready he was to be left with them. During this time, his key-worker was with him as much as possible to help him associate with a 'go-to' person.
I have always found him quick to want to engage with the staff and activities at the nursery - a credit to the welcoming atmosphere created by the team.
The staff are confident in their roles and always seem to be in and amongst the children. They also take note of each child's individual needs; this is one of the reasons I felt most happy to leave our child in their care.

My daughter has been going to this nursery setting for 9 months and her development has been monitored and improved throughout that time.
The setting is like a home from home. The activities are messy which I love. The staff are professional, friendly and clearly care for my daughters well being.
I know my daughter enjoys going there as she gets excited and happy when we approach the front door. That's a recommendation enough for me.

After been very dubious about picking a nursery for my child, I am confident I made the correct decision. Having been a nursery nurse myself this was hard for me to find a high standard nursery to help my little boy thrive in his development. All the staff are amazing and so approachable, the nursery has such a friendly welcoming vibe.
They were very flexible with the hours given, fitting them around my life and making it an easier experience for me and my son. My son has fun straight into nursery since day one and I have had to chase him around to get a goodbye. His speech has improved dramatically since starting here and also he has began to eat a wider variety of food he wouldn't touch at home.
All he talks about is school, from morning till night telling me all the things he has done, constantly wanting to be there and getting upset when he can't attend. I could not be happier seeing the excitement and happiness my child has about nursery.

Since my daughter has started Number 9 we have been amazed at the amount of effort the nursery goes to.
The team were amazing at settling our daughter who had never been left with anyone else and supported us throughout.
It is lovely to receive daily pictures and observations of our daughter and its nice to see how happy she is whilst we are at work.
They have lots of extra activities throughout the week and at the moment our daughter does the ballet and sing and sign, we were able to go along and see what the session involves and was delighted at how lovely the session was.

One of the things we also love about the nursery is the outdoor opportunities as many of the local nursery's that we viewed had smaller gardens, it has a large outdoor space to run around and enjoy and although our daughter is just starting to walk we know this will be such a lovely space for her to enjoy as she grows.
We couldn't be happier with the service we receive and would highly recommend the nursery.

My daugther joined Teddies at the beginning of April, so joined when the change of manager happened so we've witnessed a few changes!

Firstly, I'm pleased that the Baby Room moved back to the larger back room. It's a lot more spacious and has a nicer 'feel' to it, with the cot room and kitchen right there. I know that my daughter seems to like the back room, and I get told that she's likes sitting in there and read the books!

The feel of the nursery seems more relaxed and friendly lately: there seems to be less of a divide between the ages, with my daughter having her breakfast with the older children occasionally.

Any queries I've had have been addressed immediately by the new manager, who is friendly and approachable, and I feel confident that any questions or problems that may arise in the future would be addressed efficiently and effectively.

My daughter's confidence and communication skills have greatly improved since joining Teddies and she really enjoys her time there!

My youngest daughter joined the Nursery in September 2015 and her confidence and independence has grown steadily with each week. All the staff are enthusiastic and caring from the main Nursery staff to the music and drama teachers that come in weekly. It is always a warm and welcoming environment for the children and parents and my daughter loves it.
The children are treated as individuals and I can see that each of my daughters needs are met.

The teaching is gently introduced through play and if they show more of an interest this is readily supported and encouraged. With an all weather outdoor play area, walks in the grounds and large classrooms we could not be happier. I also feel happy to know that with another year in Nursery she will be fully prepared for Reception in Sept 2017; knowing her phonics and will have the social skills to work and play with others.

Firstly, I'm pleased that the Baby Room moved back to the larger back room. It's a lot more spacious and has a nicer 'feel' to it, with the cot room and kitchen right there. I know that my daughter seems to like the back room, and I get told that she's likes sitting in there and read the books!

The feel of the nursery seems more relaxed and friendly lately: there seems to be less of a divide between the ages, with my daughter having her breakfast with the older children occasionally.

Any queries I've had have been addressed immediately by the new manager, who is friendly and approachable, and I feel confident that any questions or problems that may arise in the future would be addressed efficiently and effectively.

My daughter's confidence and communication skills have greatly improved since joining Teddies and she really enjoys her time there!

Our son has been attending Clarence House since he was 13 months.
Telephone communication with the nursery has been very efficient, both for administrative purposes and for more personal issues such as whether or not he is still asleep at close to pick up time.
Face-to-face communication is also excellent: staff are quick to ask about him and give feedback about how his time with them has been.
Settling in time was arranged flexibly so that staff could gauge how ready he was to be left with them. During this time, his key-worker was with him as much as possible to help him associate with a 'go-to' person.
I have always found him quick to want to engage with the staff and activities at the nursery - a credit to the welcoming atmosphere created by the team.
The staff are confident in their roles and always seem to be in and amongst the children. They also take note of each child's individual needs; this is one of the reasons I felt most happy to leave our child in their care.

Highly recommended! Great staff, clean, safe, caring. We had the chance to try the food in the open day and it is great! Our child loves to go to the nursery and we can see on daily basis the great relationship he has with his play partner.

After been very dubious about picking a nursery for my child, I am confident I made the correct decision. Having been a nursery nurse myself this was hard for me to find a high standard nursery to help my little boy thrive in his development. All the staff are amazing and so approachable, the nursery has such a friendly welcoming vibe.
They were very flexible with the hours given, fitting them around my life and making it an easier experience for me and my son. My son has fun straight into nursery since day one and I have had to chase him around to get a goodbye. His speech has improved dramatically since starting here and also he has began to eat a wider variety of food he wouldn't touch at home.
All he talks about is school, from morning till night telling me all the things he has done, constantly wanting to be there and getting upset when he can't attend. I could not be happier seeing the excitement and happiness my child has about nursery.
