Professional and superbly caring staff at Sandy Bears has meant that each time we leave our daughter it is like leaving her with extended family. The fun, warm, friendly and inviting atmosphere provides an environment in which we have seen her thrive and develop.

She has an exceptional relationship with her key worker which makes going to nursery all the more exciting and rewarding for her. We particularly like the nursery diary which is a memorable keepsake of her experience. It allows myself and my husband the opportunity to (corroborate her account) relish her experiences.

The staff are patient and approachable and will listen to any issues in which you need their support. In the time she has been at the nursery she has progressed well - particularly her confidence and language/conversation skills. All in all, Sandy Bears is a safe, playful, engaging, educational and happy place which we would recommend to any new parent.

We've had a positive experience since my son joined two years ago. They have recently been especially good as we have been struggling with potty training, the staff have really helped him understand and get comfortable using the potty and toilet. It's still a work in progress but they have been very patient. We are also about to move into the pre-school room and they have really gently helped my son feel comfortable in the room with lots of older girls and boys. They respond to his needs, follow his interests and help him grow and learn. I would recommend the nursery to others.

Excellent nursery- staff are well trained, child centred in their planning and genuinely care about the children in their care. My son has built positive relationships and thrives academically socially and emotionally during this time at nursery. The nursery provides a broad and varied range of activities and involve parents every step of the way. I would not hesitate to recommend Step by Step Private Nursery to other parents.

My daughter goes to Teddies Tots full time as myself and my wife work full time. We couldn't have asked for a more friendly and home from home nursery, with kind, caring staff and a warm welcoming environment. We feel comfort in knowing she has freshly cooked food daily and lots of fun activities to aid her development in a clean, new, stimulating environment.

My daughter has been attending Sandy Bears 3 days a week since she was 10 months old. She is now 2 years 3 months old and has become the confident loving funny and clever little girl due to the teaching and care she has received here. Each day they are experiencing something new. The staff here work hard and always have a smile on their faces and I know that each day when I pick up my daughter she has had a wonderful day.

I have found staff to be very nice and my daughter settled in straight away. I feel happy and confident leaving my daughter as she is very happy to be there and cries to go in on days she is not due in. I have a friend who has taken her child out of another nursery and placed him at Harmony House due to my recommendation and she is very happy.

My son loves the time he spends at Dallington. The teachers are friendly, professional and are proactive in his development. Learning is fun, his reading, writing and confidence has improved considerably. We're really pleased that we've chosen Dallington for our son, it's the perfect school for him.

Abi Hercules, Bursar at Dallington School responded to this review on 04 May 2016:

Thank you for your kind, supportive words Sherrie. We are delighted your son is so happy.

My son has attended the nursery since late 2015; he had been cared for by family and the move to a nursery setting was daunting for me. I shouldn't have worried, as he was immediately welcomed and we had no issues with settling him into the nursery.

We receive daily updates on his progress and have recently attended his first parents evening. I've been pleased with how his verbal communication has significantly improved since joining, and how the nursery has supported with his potty training.

Overall, I feel the team truly care for my son and his development. Most importantly, he enjoys going to nursery and is always happy when we talk about the days events.

I am extremely happy with the quality of care at Kids 1st QE. The environment is excellent and the food is fantastic. My son has milk allergy and the nursery have been brilliant at ensuring his dietary needs are met. The team are wonderful and I feel they genuinely care about him beyond it being their job. He started at six months old and has settled in fantastically. It is hard emotionally being a mum and working full time but I know that my child is in the best possible hands so I don't need to worry about his well being.

He enjoys his days here and we feel that he is well stimulated and very well cared for.
All staff have developed positive relationships with him and have helped him settle quickly, especially his key worker.

As parents we feel fully informed and supported in this introduction phase and are confident that he will be given the opportunities and encouragement to thrive and remain a happy little boy.

Consistency, compassion and communication are the values I appreciate from the team at Pebbles day nursery. Our son and daughter attend Pebbles 4 days a week whilst my partner and I work full time. I would urge parents to take advantage of all the settle in sessions, particularly as a dad. The staff show empathy and a genuine care and enjoyment every day which gives me confidence and I especially enjoy arriving and not pushing the bell, but rather watching my children, often playing outside, interacting with their peers and staff in a highly developmental environment in which the needs of the individual child are met whilst facilitating and mirroring the kind of behaviour, ethics and values which will carry us forward as a community. The team are led by a highly positive and forward moving individual. They work together to ensure the continuity of care and support for each child is provided and I would urge you to visit Pebbles to see for yourself.

Very happy with the nursery. The staff are all friendly, and lovely. When my little girl first started it was a hard time as she was very emotional. The staff helped us deal with this and in less than a month she was transformed, and now, after 5 months, she loves it, and really enjoys it.
I feel totally happy that my child is being 'educated' as well as having fun and cared for. She gets one to one attention and her needs are very important to the staff there. I like the fact that they feedback on her behaviour, eating, and any other relevant information to the parents.
Excellent management at Poppies and I feel my little girl is in safe hands.
Overall, very happy with Poppies and would recommend to anyone.

I cannot speak highly enough of this nursery. My eldest left in September and my youngest currently attends. It is a wonderful and welcoming nursery, the children are all very happy and well cared for. There are a wide variety of activities available to do, with the staff doing an excellent job of supporting the children in their play and encouraging them to develop their own personalities and interests. It is clear to see that the staff all care for the children which is very reassuring for a parent leaving their child. I have always recommended this nursery to friends, and will continue to do so.

We are attending nursery only once a week, but even from that short time spent there can't praise it enough!
My daughter started going to Hazelwood Nursery in September 2015 when she was about 14 month old. We were offered the settling down period which lasted about a month. LO was very curious about the whole thing, the nursery building itself, new toys, activities. She started feeding independently observing other children do so.
Aunties (that's how the nurseries staff are called, which is lovely) were very welcoming and were giving her a lot of reassurance all the time, also keeping up our regular routine (bottle feeding, dummy, sleep times).
They have sensory activities, story time, outdoor play, they go for a strolls in the buggies sometimes. They paint, do a messy plays, etc. Aunties are so loving and caring, they always give a cuddle to those children who are poorly. And they always tell how your child been today, how they ate and what they did. Highly recommend!

I would like to recommend this nursery/before/after school club to anyone who is after a good care for their child! My 18 month old boy goes to nursery and absolutely loves it. When we come to pick him up he does not want to go home, which is a very good sign! Staff are brilliant, attentive, caring, kind. The manager is lovely, always there to talk, incredibly flexible and helpful. She has always found a way to meet all my needs, hours, swapping session around with no fuss which is crucial for me as a full time working mum!
I would highly recommend this nursery and a wrap around club as i found it very easy to deal with, very convenient in terms of location and very flexible in terms of approach to every family! Thank you very much!

Our little boy has been attending this wonderful nursery since Dec 2015 and we couldn't have chosen a better nursery. Everything is perfect from the caring management and staff, freshly cooked food and snacks on site, excellent facilities for all ages whether babies or pre- school. There are separate sleep and sensory rooms and the whole nursery is kept clean. Meals and pampers nappies are included in the very competitive prices. I love this nursery and most importantly so does my very precious little boy (16 mths old).

My daughter enjoys her time at nursery very much, there has to date never been an instance where she has expressed a reluctance to attend. My child has made progression in many developmental areas and continues to rapidly do so. Her time at the nursery has seen her move through 3 different rooms and settle quite quickly in all. I feel this is due to high level of care which is delivered by all staff members working throughout the nursery.
