Excellent nursery school.

Since my 3 year old son has started here I have been very impressed by the school and the quality or early years education that he is receiving. Fantastic, friendly and warm early years teachers and nursery nurses and also a full time classroom based Montessori teacher (wonderful!). My son is now much more interested in creative pursuits such as drawing and painting/jigsaw puzzles (as he is a extremely active little guy). Concentration levels have improved And he really enjoys the daily extra curriculum activities too such as yoga, dance and cooking. Brilliant outside area too.

We have been delighted with the professional yet caring and creative team. They have offered a perfect balance of Montessori education and play, enabling my son to develop into a well rounded independent and confident young boy. My son has been very stimulated by the huge range of topics each week covering a variety of subjects. It is always a joy to see his handiwork and art display at the end of the day. I know he loves the nursery as he wants to go there even on a Saturday!

Our daughter literally stamps her feet with excitement as soon as we enter through the gates of her beloved Wee Ones Nursery. I am not surprised as her day is filled with so many exciting activities. Her key workers have done everything possible to make our daughter's experience of nursery magical. To hear our 18 month old daughter count to ten, watch her play the Sleeping Bunnies game and sing at her Christmas concert is incredible and it is all due to the hard working staff at Wee Ones. We could not ask for a better nursery and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Absolutely lovely nursery, gorgeous building with nice, big playground at the back. The staff are fantastic and so, so friendly. The children are always having so much fun whilst they learn. Wee Ones seem to have a lovely balance of work and play, music and art, and my little boy has particularly enjoyed the Montessori side in his last two years there. Would highly recommend!
