My darling son joined this nursery after we moved to the UK from India. Language was the biggest barrier, but it was just wonderful to see how well he settled in. Nursery has helped him to grow in all aspects. He is now completely school ready and ready to face the new challenges confidently.

My darling daughter joined this nursery in pre-school section after a couple of changes and was associated for nearly a year and a half. It was an amazing experience as it was completely different for us back in India. The staff are very caring, settling in was very easy, the journey was smooth. Food is hygienic and nutritious. My darling daughter is now completely ready to move to a school and is confident to face the world.

Best Nursery

It was an excellent place for my Son for his foundation stages. He's learnt a lot from the nursery, more than being at home. His table manners, sharing toys, his speech and kind words like; please, sorry, thank you. My Husband and myself are grateful to your nursery. Thank you.

I placed my daughter here two mornings a week, following recommendation from a friend and because I felt she needed more than what she was getting at her preschool. Evie has settled in so well and she really enjoys all aspects of the nursery and the activities provided. She loves coming here and often talks about the friends she's made and the games she has played.

My daughter is so happy at nursery. The balance between learning and play is perfect. She doesn't realise that she is learning! The staff are fantastic, C has built up a relationship with her key worker and talks very fondly of her. I would recommend this nursery 100%. Two of my friends have since sent their children and both have settled in well.

Aiden's confidence has come on leaps and bounds since starting nursery. His speech has much improved and I love that he learns something new every time he comes in. Before he started at nursery he struggled with separation anxiety and the key workers really did well getting him over this.

The nursery is very clean, large areas to play inside/outside. The staff are very nice. The facilities are various and new. My son has two key workers and they also have a big screen where they play and look for nursery songs etc. My son loves the wooden train and he seems to be happy. He is in a good environment overall.
