Lavenders Day Nursery

I could not praise Lavender's Day Nursery highly enough and would certainly recommend it to any parent thinking of putting their child into nursery. It will be my sons last day next week and I can honestly say that he will miss it very much. The management and staff are very professional and always made my son feel good as he always looked forward to going to nursery.

Lavenders Day Nursery

Lavender Day Nursery is an excellent nursery. Our children love attending the nursery, they came on leaps and bounds since attending the nursery. The staff are brilliant and always have time to talk about the children's needs. The preschool/ butterflies have helped my son with his speech and he is doing really well.

My son started attending Lavenders in January, it was a little difficult for him at the beginning but he settled nicely thanks to the support of the staff and their excellent standard of care. Everybody has been extremely supportive and I feel safe and happy to leave my son here, he loves his days at Lavenders. I am extremely happy with the level of care received here. Thank you!

Our child will be three now and has been attending Lavenders for almost two years. The care provided by most staff is absolutely second to none. They have been extremely helpful. A special mention of Juliana, who is the nursery manager and in many ways an integral part of the nursery. We would strongly recommend Lavender Day Nursery.

My daughter has been here since she was 14 months (now 3). The facilities are excellent especially the outside space. The staff genuinely care about my daughter and she has built up some excellent relationships, with all staff knowing her name. Hours are very good as well 7.30am-6.30pm with food provided of a very good standard. I cannot recommend their nursery highly enough.

My daughter loves Lavenders, and has made enormous progress in her time there. She needs additional support at times and all the staff look out for her. She has had some excellent key workers, with whom she has really bonded to the point they are like family. The management team are extremely approachable and responsive, nothing is too much trouble. I would not hesitate to recommend Lavenders and have done so.

Reece really enjoys coming to nursery. All the staff here are really inviting and made both me and my son really welcome. I had worries as Reece was so young when he started, but they soon went away when the staff were so friendly. This is like Reece's second home, and he is always happy here. There is a lot of communication so I always know how Reece's day has been and what he has been getting up to.

Both my children have attended Lavenders. I have no qualms about recommending them to any parent. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and genuinely care about the children.

I love that all the food is freshly cooked on site and that both my children's dietary requirements were met.

Superb nursery
Both of my daughters attended Lavenders. The eldest has now started school and has settled in well which I believe is to do with the education and experiences Lavenders provided to her. My youngest was a challenging little lady but Lavenders has helped her understand the difference between right and wrong. I would totally recommend Lavenders to anyone. The staff and management are superb as is the standard of food and cleanliness of the nursery.

Lavenders Day Nursery

Like all new parents, we were very apprehensive about leaving our son at nursery. We don't live near family and so he was not used to being looked after by anyone but ourselves, plus he is quite a sensitive little boy and was definitely going through the 9 month 'clingy' stage. However, we shouldn't have worried all the staff at Lavenders have been fantastic and Edison seems very happy there now. We appreciate how they treat each child as an individual and really spend the time to learn likes and dislikes so that they feel happy and safe.

Both my children attend/have attended Lavenders at Bedford. The care is of the highest standard at all times, it provided my daughter an excellent start and the transition to school was very easy in no small part due to the management and staff at Lavenders. My son had had some serious medical issues which the nurser dealt with, the day to day care needed as well as the medical profession, it has been a great comfort and fills us with the utmost confidence in this nursery.

Being a first time mum I was really apprehensive when starting my twins at nursery they started when they were 12 months old and i can honestly say I have never looked back. From the moment they started they staff have gone above and beyond to help them settle and to work alongside me to get them them in the best routine to suit them. The development and confidence they have has been down to attending lavenders and even during the transition between rooms the staff have been great. The management team are brilliant and are really on the ball, when myself or my husband collect the children we get a full insight in to what they have done during the day from meal times to sleep times, activities and more. I honestly could not recommend lavenders enough for any parent contemplating choosing a nursery if you choose here you will never look back.

My 4 year old has attended Lavenders part time since he was 1. He will be leaving a happy, confident and independent child mostly due to the excellent care and stimulating environment of Lavenders. The staff really do care and feedback a detailed account of your child's daily experience. The pre school environment is particularly outstanding with a superbly resourced outside area. The children are active and outside almost all of the time rain or shine! Staff are like family and take a real interest in the children in their care. On the occasion when my child had a bad morning or felt unsettled I have always received a phone call to put my mind at rest to say he is fine. Health and safety procedures are rigorous and I always have peace of mind that he is in a safe, nurturing environment. My son talks about the exciting adventures he has with his friends at Lavenders all of the time as it has become such an important part of his life. Over the last 3 years I would say 90% of the staff body have remained the same. Happy staff equals happy children. Finally, credit must be given to the leadership team who always go above and beyond for the families they serve.

My son has attended this nursery for the last 3 years, the service received is outstanding. All the staff are so helpful and friendly and really make you and your child feel welcome. I work for the emergency services and my job involves me doing various shifts which vary week to week, Lavenders have always been so flexible and understanding with this and are always willing to accommodate to my needs, sometimes at very short notice. My son thoroughly enjoys going to nursery and has learnt so much in the last 3 years, i can highly recommend lavenders to any parent. The dinners are also amazing along with the staff and service received.

Lavenders Day Nursery

Lavenders is an excellent nursery, our eldest daughter has attended since she was a year old and we have nothing but praise for the way she has been looked after since the day she joined. The staff are all very nurturing and friendly and create a safe, caring and supportive environment within which the children learn and most importantly have fun! The management team are also incredibly flexible at accommodating our needs wherever they can, which makes our lives so much easier. Our daughter loves to tell us what she has been up to during the day and the huge variety of activities she has enjoyed. There are activities to cater for all children, ranging from craft, to cooking, to reading, sports and pretend play to name but a few, I particularly like that the children play outside every day, whatever the weather!! Lavenders are also extremely helpful when it comes to the developmental things such as potty training and were invaluable in helping us get our daughter dry. The food is good, a variety of nutritious, balanced meals are provided and our daughter seems to have second helpings of everything!! We enjoy parents day and reading through the excellent learning journals that are completed for every child, it's lovely to see the photos and read the anecdotes as to what our daughters life at nursery is like. We cannot recommend Lavenders enough, the most important thing is that our daughter is settled and happy and loves going to nursery, there is no better endorsement in my mind. We look forward to her little sister joining her and starting her own nursery adventure!
