The preparations for,and transition to, the new pre-school building have been excellent. The butterflies team have provided support for the children - and the excitement and enthusiasm of the staff has rubbed off on the children. Parents communication has been clear and timely.The end result - the new building is great. A particular note of thanks to Meg- who will be missed by parents and children a like.

Review of Maples Day Nursery

Hayley Dozey has really encouraged my daughter with learning new skills in preparation for school. She is now able to write her own name and count to 100 (with some help), so that she is well prepared for school in September 2015.

Review of Maples Day Nursery

Hayley Doley has been amazing as a key worker for my daughter. We moved to the area recently and she has helped to settle and make new friends and develop (she can now write her own name). Hayley has been really supportive of me as a single mum, she is a welcoming face at drop off and pick up, affectionate friendly and professional. Faultless.

Review of Maples Day Nursery

Our daughter had a wonderful time at Maples and we are very grateful to all the staff for having provided the most wonderful care for her. She has developed enormously as a consequence with all the many different activities that they have provided during the past 12 months. The management has also been incredibly supportive and accommodating of our continuous changing needs and arrangements. We couldn't have asked for a better place and we will certainly miss it !

Review of Maples Day Nursery

My son absolutely loves going to Maples. At 17 months he happily sits at home reciting all the staff members names and squeals with delight as we arrive in the mornings. The team are very professional and you can tell from the moment you walk in how much they care for your child. Highly recommended.

Review of Maples Day Nursery

My children have a very specific diet and the nursery are incredibly helpful with this - always offering alternatives and asking if certain things are OK. The manager Helen is incredibly polite, friendly and welcoming. The following carers go out of their way to look after my boy: Hayley, Danni, Elysha, Hannah (Ladybirds), Bryony, Sam, Beverley, Carolina, Emily and Doreen are wonderful and specific effort always. Plus Claire and Lyn great management.

Review of Maples Day Nursery

The staff at Maples have always made me feel confident and relaxed about leaving both my children with them and going back to work. It's difficult to put a value on such a provision. I am glad my children go to Maples as their development is coming in leaps and bounds. We are very proud of both our girls! And it's a BIG THANK YOU to Maples!

Review of Maples Day Nursery

My daughter has attended Maples from the age of 8 months through to starting school. Her time and experience at nursery I genuinely believe evolved her into a very happy confident and sociable little girl and definitely made the transition to school a pain free experience. As my son enters into Bumble Bees I can already see him developing on the same journey as his sister.
