Review of Castle Green Children's Centre on Wednesday 13 August 2014 by Karen Goosetree (Parent)

My child attended this nursery for nearly 2 years. this was a real life line for me and my child as my child was very shy and found it hard to interact with other children. Since attending this nursery he has come out of his shell and built some great friendships with both children and staff. There is a great atmosphere at this nursery as they have a great team running it . I feel that by taking my son to this nursery it has helped him leaps and bounds and would recommend this nursery above any other in the borough.

Review of Castle Green Children's Centre on Tuesday 12 August 2014 by Lawrence (Parent of two children)

Two of my children attend castle green and I must say I am so impressed with the improvement in their knowledge and skills. My children look forward to going and the names of their teachers have become house hold names now. They have also helped introduce my children to taking fruits (5 a day), which was what I struggled with. Having used them for two years now,their safety procedures puts my mind at rest. I definitely will continue using them and would recommend.

Review of Castle Green Children's Centre on Tuesday 28 January 2014 by Mrs Huckfield (Parent)

My son attended from July 13- Jan 14 and I wish he could have stayed longer, he had such a brilliant time. The staff are amazing, answered all of my questions about the day and what he did, they knew his personality and he was very well cared for. The new 2-3 room was lovely, my son enjoyed all the space and loved spending time in the garden, he learned lots of new things such as how to feed himself properly and had bags of confidence. A big thank you to assistant manager Tasha and manager Angela and all of the staff they are always coming up with brilliant ideas on how to develop the nursery, they are ready to listen to any worries or concerns and really do care about the children. Would not hesitate to recommend Castle Green to any parent.

Review of Castle Green Children's Centre on Wednesday 6 November 2013 by Ozne Kutar (Mother of 2 year old son)

We'd been around so many nurseries in this area but none of them has met our expectations as much as Castle Green has. It's a fabulous nursery with brilliant staff. Since the minute we walked in, everyone's been a great help with us. They sort out problems within minutes in a very professional manner. We can't thank them enough for all the care and support.

Review of Castle Green Children's Centre on Wednesday 4 September 2013 by Hustine Omoyeni (Father of 2 children)

I recommend this nursery for a number of good reasons. Here are some of the fantastic and unique qualities the nursery possesses. -Professional and accommodating staff who are always ready to give extra assistance at all times. They are so supportive. -It is evident that the love and concern of the children in their care are genuine. My boys can't stop talking about their experience in the nursery and their eagerness to be back there the next day. They always come back with a new experience day in day out.

Review of Castle Green Children's Centre on Tuesday 27 August 2013 by Roseline Oyewumi (Mother of child)

We have enjoyed a family relationship with the centre right from the time my baby was very little, even before crawling. We have attended a series of meetings and groups organised for children. The staff had and have been wonderful to me, my daughter and my family. (I just pray the late fee will be reduced). My gratitude goes to them, for their support, smile, warm embrace. Thanks!

My daughter has made a good progress in the nursery. The nursery provides very good management. At the end of each month, parents get a chance to talk to key workers about the progress of the child, which is very helpful. Also the nursery provides Halal meat, suits parents' need.

Review of Castle Green Children's Centre on Thursday 23 May 2013 by Sam S (Mother of 18 month old boy)

My son has attended this nursery since he was 14 weeks old and I have found no reason for complaint. Everyone at the centre is friendly and helpful and the ladies in his room provide excellent care. He has built an excellent relationship with the staff that care for him and he is extremely happy here. He is always excited when he arrives at 'school'. I have no doubt that he is well looked after and that his needs are always considered. The ladies respect my requests and decisions as a parent and I respect theirs also. I would hugely recommend Castle Green.

Review of Castle Green Children's Centre on Monday 13 May 2013 by Nasice Diaby (Mother of child)

Castle Green Nursery is a good nursery with friendly and dedicated staff. When my son was joining the nursery he didn't interact with other children or people he doesn't know, but now he interacts with new people and his communication is a lot better than before he joined the nursery. So I would recommend Castle Green to any parent.

Review of Castle Green Children's Centre on Friday 10 May 2013 by Laura G (mother)

My son started here a year ago at 2 years old. His development has come on leaps and bounds since he has been attending. I am always kept up to date with what he has been doing throughout the day, how much he has eaten and can browse his file whenever I please to check his progress. Also having monthly parents evenings is a great idea. I cannot recommend castle green highly enough.

Review of Castle Green Children's Centre on Thursday 6 September 2012 by Hoi Ying Wong (Mother of 2 1/2 year old girl)

There are lots of children centres and nurseries around my area but this is the one I stick to since antenatal classes. The staff there are very friendly. Before my girl joined the nursery and staff came to our place to do a home visit, we spent time talking about her routines and development. The visit provided the opportunity for the key worker and my girl to form that bond and trust. My girl settled really quickly, made lots of friends and loves her nursery. I hope their recent up date on their facilities will push their rating up on Ofsted. As I understand that I'm a really lucky parent having my girl enjoy her nursery time so much.
