My son has been there since it opened, I have watched my baby turn into a clever and engaging little boy. The team are epic, everyone that's involved from manager to chef all show a genuine interest in not only the children but the parents too.
I cannot find fault in the energy and commitment the team show in their everyday roles and the packed annual calendar, the nursery commits to combining activities for the children but also the parents.
Since my son started in the nursery I have watched his eating habits, speaking, listening and interaction skills go from good to amazing. He is confident and assured in children and adults company. He faces everyday head on with a positive and fun attitude, living life to the max.

To know your children are in safe hands whilst your not with them is the best feeling in the world, this has given me the confidence to go back to work knowing that my little boy will receive the best care and attention in my absence, this is something I will never forget.

Both of my sons go to nursery at Soundwell and they both love it. It's helped them with confidence, speech and all sorts of skills, I couldn't be happier with the level of care they get.
The staff look after them like their own and nurture them just as I would at home. I have already recommended them to friends and will continue to do so.

Moving my son to Tinysaurus from another nursery was one of my best decisions. Drop-offs in the morning went from 30-40 min to "bye mummy" and not even looking back.

The staff are great and it really feels like they all like being there and like looking after children. They view them as people and give them proper respect.
He's learnt so much and really enjoys going there. When he comes back he always tells me about all the things they have been up to and it's great to know that they offer an environment when children are allowed to learn, play and feel safe.

The facilities are always nice and clean. Their method is very structured but it works very well and offers a great stability that I think has been very good for my son.
Food is great and varied, they are allowed to explore and try many different things and I have noticed a difference in him eating more things that he has tried at the nursery.

Since my son has started Mama Bears he has become such a confident and social child. He is very bright and loves to learn and that is because of the staff and key workers who help him. I will definitely be sending my youngest child to Mama Bears when he is ready.

My son has attended Charley's Angels since he was 8 months old, he has come on so well. All the staff are amazing, they always keep you updated with your child and how they have been. The rooms are nice and bright with pictures on the walls and lots of things to do. The outdoor area is great, lots of room to play, My son enjoys the food, they tell me he sometimes wants extra. The staff are very approachable and easy to talk to.

A wonderful nursery, where I feel the staff genuinely care for my son. They offer brilliant activities to encourage learning and development with creativity and originality. My son loves it, and I feel confident leaving him there to go to work. All the staff know the children and communication with parents is brilliant. Thank you for being the wonderful people who care for my son when I'm not able to due to work commitments!

When we came to look around, I was immediately struck by the friendly and happy atmosphere at Nutkins and that's been consistent for the year that my little boy has been attending. The staff are wonderful and really take the time to get to know each child individually, any changes in behaviour are quickly spotted and we receive a report at the end of each day, also the online portal to track development is a really helpful tool.
It's hugely reassuring dropping my son off each day knowing that he's comfortable in a safe, happy environment where development is encouraged in fun, creative ways.

Our two boys started at Fledglings as babies and have really thrived there. Our oldest in particular is always excited to start his day there. With lots of activities and playtime to keep them occupied, we get a big pile of artwork to take home each month, so they are very creative. There is always ample opportunity to play outside and it's lovely in the summer when you tend to pick them up directly from the outside play area, the children are always having such fun and we get a glimpse of their playtime before they see us.
The food is good and varied, and the boys seem to be less fussy at nursery than they are at home.
I always enjoy reading through the record of their learning and activities, it is such a nice reminder of how they have progressed over the months.

Extremely happy with the care and support they give all the children.
In the short amount of time my grandchild has been there you can see how confident he has become and he is always happy to return. I am very pleased with the staff and how safe and secure this nursery is. I would definitely be happy with sending my other grandchildren here.

Pennies is a wonderful nursery. The staff are attentive and caring and you really get a sense that your child is treated as an individual. They constantly seek feedback and act on your suggestions.

Both of my children have enjoyed their time at Pennies and formed strong bonds with their carers.

My son absolutely loves going here and even though I still find it difficult to leave him the girls put my mind at rest. I know he is cared for brilliantly and they have the time to help him with his development and social skills. As with any child, they go through funny stages and Little Stars work with parents to ensure the same approach is taken at home and in their care. It is very important to me that my son has the best care in my absence and Little Stars ticks all the boxes!!!

Very pleased with Little Stars. They invited me and my son in for a tour before he started. They made us feel welcome and supported us building up to my son staying long days. This was a hard transition for me and they kept me regularly updated with his progress.
My son now loves attending and is always exhausted after the busy day he has had. I highly recommend this nursery.

I cannot praise Pennies highly enough. My daughter has cerebral palsy and I was very nervous about leaving her. But Pennies have been incredible and my daughter has blossomed since going there.
They provide a stimulating and fun environment and are actively involved in her development, from helping her to walk to learning Makaton. The staff always ensure that they are up to date on what she needs and even suggest things which might help us at home. She is so excited to go there and would honestly rather be at Pennies than at home now! I just wish that they had more places so that she could attend full-time.
I have also just started my 7month old there for one day a week and she loves it too! The staff have really taken the time to get to know what she likes to do, her routine and what makes her happy. I think that being at Pennies will help her to blossom in the same way as her sister.
Thank you to everyone for your hard work and dedication to what you do.

I am the grandparent of an energetic 3-year-old who attends Monkey Puzzle in Bromley. It is a first class nursery.
From the manager, assistants and the chef they give every child 100% of their needs every day. My grandson loves his days there and I feel it will be a great stepping stone into school. Well done to everyone.

My daughter attends Rascals Carnmoney three times a week and absolutely loves it. She looks forward to going. The learning approach they use (highscope) has really improved my daughter's speech, playing with others, making decisions and identifying objects, she sings nursery rhymes by herself at home now! (She is 2 and a half). The staff are approachable and attentive. The online access for parents to see what their child has eaten, what nappies they have produced and a few photos is reassuring and let's the staff do their job without parents ringing up all the time, although they never mind.
I am able to see what she has done from the activity list and talk to her about it at home. The food is fantastic, homemade and portion controlled. Any illnesses or things like headlice etc are quickly controlled. I haven't a bad word to say. It is clearly a well managed nursery.

My eldest daughter has been going to the Rascals at Upper Newtownards since September 2015 and absolutely loves it. All the staff know her by name and she loves all the different activities each day. She even eats food at Rascals that she wouldn't eat at home which is a testament to how tasty it must be!
I particularly love how I can log in throughout the day to a portal where I'm updated on how she is getting on with food, sleep, activities and also photos. It gives great piece of mind.
Our second daughter is starting soon too.
Couldn't recommend it enough!

Rascals has a lovely, welcoming atmosphere. All staff are extremely attentive and friendly and show a genuine interest and care towards the children. They provide detailed, daily feedback which is updated throughout the day and can be obtained online.
Rascals provide a comfortable, stimulating environment, which is well resourced and a variety of play activities to enhance the intellectual, social, emotional, language and physical development of the children. They provide a healthy, nutritious, varied menu.
However, it is expensive and as a result, we only use it 3 days per week.

Lisa Talbot, Manager at Rascals Day Nursery responded to this review on 20 Jan 2017:

Thank you for your kind comments. They are very much appreciated, by myself and the team. It's a pleasure to have you as part of our Rascal family.

My son joined Brandywell in September 2015 at age 2. The nursery staff were so flexible with settling him in and he has always been very happy there. The staff are all warm, friendly and approachable. There is a range of activities for the children and they have a good variety of food which my son really enjoys. He has made so many friends and I feel totally confident that he is well looked after while he is there.

My daughter has been going here since August 2016 when she was 11months old and I don't have a single bad word to say, the staff are alway attentive and interacting with the kids. Centre play is brilliant and gives the kids the much needed physical activity that they need to grow. The menu is the best menu I've ever seen in a nursery and my daughter loves it. I would recommend this nursery to everyone.
