Review of Leys Children's Centre Nursery

My son has a brain disorder, staff are wonderful and from day 1 have continued to support, refer to speech etc and encourage his development and learning. This is a brilliant nursery, with brilliant, caring staff who you can always approach. Regularly give feedback and how his day has been etc. I intend to keep him at this nursery until time for full-time school.

Review of Leys Children's Centre Nursery

Leys nursery has everything I wanted in a nursery. A large garden for exploring, multiple play areas and a range of learning activities. However, most importantly all the staff are really caring and take time to get to know each child individually. Whenever I collect my boys a member of staff is engaging them in a fun activity and someone is always able to give me some personal feedback on how their day went. I would thoroughly recommend this nursery.

Review of Leys Children's Centre Nursery

As most parents, you want to leave your child in a safe, clean, caring place so you have peace of mind. Well, Leys is that and a lot more that you could imagine. My son attended Leys of more than a year. The staff are amazing. They care for each child as if it were their own, I guess. The attention to detail is extreme. Everyone know everyone, likes, dislikes, development. My son developed as I would only dream of. Everyone is very supportive and dedicated. My son now left to join school. Great memories we take with us. Leys in one word: OUTSTANDING!!!! Thanks a million everyone.

Review of Leys Children's Centre Nursery

I was very anxious about my little girl starting nursery as she is my first child and I was heavily pregnant with my son at the time. My fears were put to rest on the very first visit when we were welcomed by a caring and friendly team. Before starting nursery my daughter was quite timid and shy. She has come on in leaps and bounds with the support of a dedicated team of wonderful staff. When dropping her off and picking her up the wonderful staff always ask how she is and give a little update on her day. My daughter's key worker clearly knows her inside out. My daughter LOVES going to nursery and when it is the holidays always asks if she can go back to nursery. I am so very grateful to all the staff at the nursery and I sincerely hope that they are all still there when it comes time for my son to start nursery. This time I won't be anxious! I will be looking forward to watching him being cared for and looked after by a wonderful and dedicated team of staff. THANK YOU ALL. Your time, support and dedication is greatly appreciated. I am going to miss you all and I know my daughter has had the best start to her 'school life'. I would strongly recommend Leys nursery.

Review of Leys Children's Centre Nursery

We did look at a few nurseries, Leys is the one I did prefer the most - the welcome was excellent and their dedication is like no other. When I visited the nursery each child had a name and Laura described their personality which I liked a lot. Each little one has their place. My little one has been there 4 month and the transformation has been amazing. She used to be a very fragile little one, very attached to her mum but now she is more confident and knows every girl at the nursery. She has got her favourites of course. Each day I get told how her day has been, how much fun she had, I get my little report. It’s hard to leave your little one to go back to work but to know that she is cared for with so many excellent staff. You can call all day and they will take the time to give you some news about your little one. I will recommend this nursery as everyone knows my little girl and every child knows each other like a big family. I also notice their technique of teaching, sharing and technique to calm them when a child has a tantrum and I took note very impressive and professional. The staff are more than qualified and they are more than interested in the development of each child with each of their needs. I can discuss the progress of my little one who is 13month and feel that her progress is seen by everyone who knows her. A big thanks to Laura, Yvonne, Caroline, Theresa, Jessica , Jodi, Sarah, Rahkaja, Sam, Emma from a different Group and Julie and many more and I feel bad as some names I have forgotten. They all have a huge smile. From Miss Georgine Forleo – French mummy of my little one
