Castle Nursery - South Hill

The staff at Castle Nursery - South Hill have been fantastic. My daughter started in September 2014. They made what could have been a stressful time much easier and they couldn't have been more helpful; nothing was too much trouble. My daughter settled in quickly and is always happy and chatty when I pick her up I've noticed some big leaps in her development and she loves playing in the garden. She recently moved up to the next room and that transition has been a smooth one. She found it a little daunting joining the older kids but the staff were always on hand to give her cuddles and reassurance. The staff are all very attentive and caring, and the management always respond quickly if I have any questions. The nursery has a real family feel and I've really enjoyed joining in with the parent's events. I can't recommend them enough!

Castle Nursery - South Hill

Lovely smiley staff who are always happy to help and chat. A contented baby (only 5 months old when she started) who even at this age is enjoying the fun but structured environment. I feel so happy to leave her at the start of the day as she is pleased to be there. I have already recommended this nursery to other mummy friends and would do so wholeheartedly again.
