A lovely, friendly place for children the thrive

My son has attended Hardingstone day nursery for over a year since he was 13 months old. During his time there he has thrived. The staff are lovely and show genuine affection for the children. After every session I receive a detailed communication sheet outlining his day - how much he's eaten, what's he's played with etc.
Regular parents evening are held and individual goals are set. My son's key worker is working on building his confidence so he becomes less shy.
Lots of toys, messy/crafty play, a fantastic garden that is used a lot and nutritious meals. I can't recommend this place highly enough.

My son has been attending Hardingstone Nursery since he was 7 months old and he loves it there. When he started he was learning to sit on his own and has been constantly encouraged through every stage of his development. I have regular parents evenings and enjoy watching him play and learn at nursery. I couldn't ask for any better care of my little boy. I would highly recommend this nursery.
