Ashley Cross Children's Nursery

I can't say enough about Angela and her staff, and the level of trust I have in them taking care of my daughter. From the first visit I made to this nursery in early 2014, I felt sure that this was the place for her. First of all, Angela is the perfect combination of kind and caring with the children and at the same time incredibly professional. She mad me feel comfortable instantly that she takes child care very seriously. Ashley Cross Children's Nursery has a real sense of home when you walk in, and the children always seem to feel that way too. The facilities are great, the activities are varied, and the staff are amazing and really to take the time to learn about each child and his/ her needs individually. Even during the settling in period and the tears that come with it, I always knew that my daughter was happy there from day one, and felt that I was utterly supported as a parent the entire time too. I truly feel like my daughter is thriving and this nursery and its lovely, caring, professional and imaginative staff has played no small role in that. I would recommend it without hesitation.

After having had a bad experience with a previous child minder I was very careful with my choice on Nursery. Angela made me feel so comfortable from the offset and I am am delighted with my choice. My daughter has been at the nursery since November 2013 and I could not be happier with my choice. From the minute I drop her off I am confident she is going to have a great day and this is evident when I pick her up- always happy and tells me all about it on the way home. The staff are so caring, professional and the way they nurture the children is so comforting. I am sure they feel like they are at home when they are there. Embracing all areas of life - from St George's day to Japanese children's day - my fridge is full of wonderful pieces of art! Any issue is always dealt with sensitively and with compassion and I dread the day my daughter has to leave. Highly recommended!

I could not be happier with this nursery. The staff are superb, always friendly, warm and caring. My son is so happy here and I'd highly recommend the nursery. When I drop my son off in the morning I know he will be looked after with the utmost care.

I have been using Ashley Cross Nursery for almost 7 years, taking 3 children there. In the whole time I have been there with my children I have never been let down. Not only do they achieve 100% in their job role but they have always been there for advice or even just someone to talk to. I have seen outstanding service to not only my 3 children but to others to. I will be distraught when my last child starts school and I won't be going there to see their lovely faces on a weekly basis.

Welcomiing and friendly little nursery
My daughter started part time when she turned 1. She has settled in well and enjoys going to nursery. All the staff know Jessica and she knows all of them, which is lovely to see, especially when she looks so happy when I pick her up. It is a lovely little nursery with very friendly staff. I would highly recommend and feel extremely happy and comfortable leaving my daughter there.

Ashley Cross is a fantastic nursery for my son. He only attends half a day a week, but the staff there know him so well. My son has learnt so much and developed through all the work staff have done with him. The environment is bright and stimulating whilst being homely at the same time, helping children to feel comfortable and settled. We have regular updates on our son's progress and feel we can contact anyone at the nursery whenever we need to. I would thoroughly recommend the nursery to any parent for their child.

When it was time to look for a nursery for our son we visited lots in our local area. As soon as we walked into Ashley Cross we knew this was the right one and we haven't been disappointed. Our son is so happy here and loves playing the games with his friends.
