Silchester Manor Day Nursery Maidenhead, Buckinghamshire

Since attending he is reaching his milestones really well. The staff are all very professional and great with the children and setting boundaries which I feel is really important.

Little Scallywags Day Nursery Macclesfield Macclesfield, Cheshire
All the staff are very polite and welcoming. My Daughter has learnt so much since going to Little Scallywags. Every time she comes home she's either singing a new song she's learnt or drawing pictures she couldn't draw before. My Daughter didn't used to interact with other children but since going to nursery she does. The nursery is very clean and safe I can trust the team so I don't worry once I drop her off.

Singleton Day Nursery Swansea
I was a bit apprehensive about my Son attending Playscheme in the Easter holidays as he was unsure of how we would fit in, but after just one session he could not wait to come back. There was plenty of different activities to keep him entertained and the staff in Playscheme were very helpful and friendly, he is looking forward to attending in the next school holidays.

Asquith Sidcup Pre-School & Day Nursery Sidcup, London
Good all round nursery
This is a very well presented and caring nursery. The staff make dropping off my child easy as they are welcoming to the children & very friendly. They concentrate on their learning developments and creative play. The only negative is the lack of the outdoor space but it's a small compromise on a very good nursery. The facilities are well catered and generally clean, very pleased with the close knit & caring environment.

Small friendly well run nursery. Staff very willing to help and cooperate with any issues arising with a child. Very helpful with potty training giving me a first time mother at the time helpful and useful advice and tips whenever I asked.

New Beginnings Day Nursery Romford Romford, London
Remembering back when our little girl started putting trust in people that you do not know very well is a big step. We needn't have worried. The New Beginnings team and all the staff are wonderful. The first week our little girl was looked after amazingly in the Bluebell room, observing and exploring new toys and finding it comfortable and growing confidence with all the other children, carers and the place itself. Its great seeing our little girl now owning the place being confident, curious and happy, having lots of friends and having great trust in the nursery team. She feels happy to express her feelings. The staff are always approachable and friendly. They care about their work and the children in a very professional way. Every staff member knows all the children by name even in different rooms. The cook is lovely and talks to the children and encourages them to eat and praises them. They building and group rooms are very well maintained and colourful child friendly and safe. Everything is clean and very well looked after. Their garden is wonderful with the nature area, they are growing tomatoes in their greenhouse there is exercise space and lots of games and different toys to discover and play with. The management and staff always take there time and encourage parents to talk to the children about their day, activities and development. They inform parents with great detail about ideas and teaching practices. We also like to get written weekly feedback reports what our little girl has got up to. They incorporate this within nursery time. The staff are wonderful and we are very happy that our little girl is part of such a great place. Thank you very much New beginnings team!

My little girl is so happy in Ladybird's room. She is encouraged to learn how to so things for herself. The self serve breakfast is a great idea! There is is much learning through exploratory play. The outdoor space is much larger than most nurseries would have. My little one loves the staff, especially her key worker Rachael.
