Hardingstone Day Nursery Northampton, Northamptonshire
Posted: 19 Sep 2014 by Kim P (Mother of child)
My son has been attending Hardingstone Nursery since he was 7 months old and he loves it there. When he started he was learning to sit on his own and has been constantly encouraged through every stage of his development. I have regular parents evenings and enjoy watching him play and learn at nursery. I couldn't ask for any better care of my little boy. I would highly recommend this nursery.

I am so pleased with how well my son has settled, I feel total peace of mind dropping him off in the mornings, he is so happy to be there. The staff have all been fantastic, he has come on so much with his speech, communication and his vocabulary. The E-log is fantastic, gives you updates on your child’s progress and such an easy way to communicate with the nursery staff.

Bobby's Playhouse Fulham Pre-School & Day Nursery London
Posted: 19 Sep 2014 by Erika K (Mother of 2 year old and 10 month old)
I'm very happy with this nursery. My son just loves to be in there. All the staff are very friendly and helpful. My son might have autism, but the staff treat him the same, like all the kids, and I'm very happy about that. The ladies of reception are so lovely, always smiling and making you welcome all the time. The rooms in nursery are of a very good size, just outside could be bigger, but still enough space for kids to play. I just love this place and my son.

Little Achievers Forest School Nursery Blackburn, Lancashire
Posted: 19 Sep 2014 by Nicole M (Mother of 3 year old son)
My son has attended Little Achievers for four weeks now and absolutely loves it! The staff have made settling in so easy by being so friendly and caring. My son loves the Forest School as he loves to explore and play outdoors so this is the perfect setting for him. His keyworker always makes sure I know how he has been and the early years online log is a fantastic way to look at his observations and a good communication method.

Asquith Warsash Day Nursery Southampton, Hampshire
Posted: 19 Sep 2014 by Maisi P (Mother of 4 year old girl)
My eldest daughter has attended this nursery since she was 9 months old. From the start the staff have been warm and welcoming. They encourage my daughter's to share their experiences of home life and incorporate it into their learning at preschool. I cannot praise this nursery and preschool enough. The staff, from the cook to the manager are child focussed and experts in their area of the nursery and preschool. My children adore their key workers and love going to nursery. I wouldn't feel comfortable leaving my children anywhere else.

Nutkins Nursery Manchester, Greater Manchester
Posted: 19 Sep 2014 by Jennifer T (Mother of 2 year old)
Nutkins have looked after my son over a year now. The standard of care, fun and learning is excellent, the staff are lovely, friendly and approachable and know the children, their quirks and personalities really well. Management have employed really lovely caring and qualified staff who are genuine and take any concerns seriously. Every child is treated as an individual and their routine is flexible e.g my son struggles sleeping anywhere other than next to me however the girls at Nutkins worked patiently with him at his own pace, until he was religiously having his naps at nursery everyday.

Hadden Hill Nursery & Preschool Didcot, Oxfordshire
Posted: 19 Sep 2014 by Samantha S (Mother of 1 year old son)
Hadden Hill Nursery is a small nursery with friendly staff who really care for each and every child they look after. They treat the children as if they were their own. My son joined the nursery when he was 15 months old and he soon fitted into his new surroundings as if he has been there since he was a newborn. They really make an effort with the children and keep their development records up to date, which is so nice for us as parents to read. Children really flourish in this nursery.

This is in my opinion the best nursery in the area by far that I could bring my son too. I know that when I bring my son into this nursery he is well cared for and the staff are very attentive to his needs. He is developing so much and becoming more confident and learning new skills. There is always so much going on with different activities going on in the room. I would highly recommend the nursery to other parents.
