I have been using this nursery for over two years and am very pleased with the standard of care given to my children. My sons, 18 months and 3 years, enjoy attending the nursery and have made lots of friends there. The staff are always welcoming and give lots of feedback at the end of the day when I collect the children. I've really enjoyed looking at their development files, which have lots of photos, drawings and observations. I'd recommend this nursery to friends and family.
