The Overall Average of all the Ratings in the following 

2 Reviews is 4.4 out of 5

I am so glad I found this nursery.
I feel as though I can ask any question, call anytime and the girls are always friendly and welcoming and make you feel very comfortable.

Most of all my son loves it. He has learnt so much since he started and he loves his key worker as well as the rest of the staff. He is always happy when he enters and when he leaves and nearly every week he has a little gift or something he's made which is lovely.

You get a full insight of what he has done today and how he has been.

I don't think I could ask for more.

Very pleased with how my son's key worker and all staff at nursery handled readjusting him back after being away on holiday for 3 weeks, especially when he has been very clingy and emotional at morning drop offs.
