Review of Ashley Cross Children's Nursery

We have looked at many nurseries in Poole. When we viewed Ashley Cross Children's Nursery we were so impressed. The staff were friendly and the nursery had a homely feel. Our daughter has settled in so well and has really come out of her shell.

Review of Ashley Cross Children's Nursery

This is my third child that has attended this nursery. I have never had a problem in the 7 years that I have been going to Ashley Cross and I have seen with my own eyes the high standards the nursery and the staff have over the children. There has been staff changes within the 7 years and every time there has been a qualified and high standard person to join. I also find the nursery staff and manager helpful to speak to at nursery about any problems i.e bedtime, dinner times etc.

Review of Ashley Cross Children's Nursery

We never worry about leaving our son at nursery as they have always made us feel we can trust them and give us no cause for concern. The main thing is that our son has never not wanted to go and has made some lovely friends. The staff are always available and give you their time, for advice and experience whenever you need it.
