Asquith Kew Day Nursery & Pre-School Richmond, London
This is quite simply the best nursery I have ever come across. It really is home away from home. Such a nurturing environment. My baby started at 6 months old and settled straight away. The settling in period was terrific with no hiccups at all. We gradually stepped up my sons days to three full days and he has never been happier. He is being assessed for a possible cows milk intolerance and the staff have been simply terrific in helping with this. Tia and co in the baby room are wonderful and Natlie in pre-school had my daughter reading independently by the end of the summer hols! Worth the 10 minute drive from Barnes.

Asquith Kew Day Nursery & Pre-School Richmond, London
My three year old son had been very happy at this previous nursery and I was worried he might not settle but the staff at Kew were patient, welcoming and very caring, he settled quickly and easily. He loves his days in pre-school and I am very happy with the staff both in the room and office, they are all always open, friendly and have a lovely welcoming manner. The pre-scholl learning through play is excellent. I would recommend this nursery to others - Thank you Kew!

Rising Stars Day Care Nursery Sittingbourne, Kent
Fantastic nursery through and through
Our son has been attending the nursery for a while now & we can not express how much support we have had from them since he started. With the guidelines & up to date training that they receive they were able to help us identify that our son has special educational needs & since the beginning of this year we have received a huge amount of support from the nursery & outside agencies. With this support our son is showing improvement in his social skills everyday. We have a huge amount of gratitude to express to the staff at nursery & would highly recommend the nursery to any new parent.

Cherubs Mansfield Woodhouse Mansfield, Nottinghamshire
I cannot fault Cherubs for anything. They have been excellent at accommodating my flexible working pattern. My daughter is thriving and I know that this is down to the nursery staff they employ. She regularly has 2 helpings of dinner and pudding, so definitely enjoys her food. Jayde is a credit to the nursery, she makes parents feel comfortable and welcome and is fabulous with the children.

Children 1st @ St Peter & St Paul Chesterfield, Derbyshire
Having looked at many nurseries in Chesterfield we decided initially on this nursery due to the friendly staff. The progression that my son has made with his speech, personality and confidence is fantastic. He enjoys attending nursery and does so full time. The staff are fantastic, the meals varied healthy and could not ask for more from the childcare provider. We are kept well informed and my son has made firm friends.

The Blue Strawberry Kids Daycare Ltd @ Leamington Spa Leamington Spa, Warwickshire
A wonderful, warm and caring environment. My daughter went right through from nine months to four years and was really happy. It is a very nurturing environment and staff take a personal interest in every child. My son has also been here since 10 months and although only does one day a week is well looked after and loves coming. Same lovely trips out and food is of a high standard.

The Co-operative Childcare Newburn Nursery Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne & Wear
My son is a child with additional needs as he is unable to walk. The nursery is fantastic with him and he is made to feel included in all activities within the nursery. The staff are trained in the extra medical care my son requires and work well with the physios who visit my son at nursery. This puts both mine and my husband's minds at ease, knowing my son receives such high quality care. They are outstanding.

Treetops Day Nursery - (Irby) Wirral, Merseyside
Our 19 month old son has been at Treetops for the last 9 months. During that time we have really seen him develop socially due to the interactions he has with others at nursery. We have always found the staff to be very approachable and professional and it is clear that they are passionate about their jobs. We would have no hesitation in recommending Treetops to other parents.
