Briar Cottage Nursery

My daughter has attended Briar Cottage Day Nursery since September 2014 when she was two and a quarter. She was ready and then shortly after, we found out we qualified for a free place. This made no difference to them and she was treated exactly the same. She started in the "middles" room and progressed on to the "Tops" before her third birthday. She is only coming out the nursery this month as we are moving out of the area. From her point of view it is a shame as she is just starting to recognise her nursery friends when we are out and about Newton Le Willows. The only thing some people state is the smaller outside play area compared to some nurseries, however the area they have is mainly covered and therefore allows the children out more. The manager and the staff have always made us welcome, been very friendly and had time for us. I would recommend this nursery to anyone.

I moved my son here from another local nursery and was very concerned after my previous experience, but could not have chosen a better place. They are amazing and go out of their way for the children. My son has learnt more in 3 months being there compared to 6 months at another nursery. I cannot find fault with their routines, food, care, learning etc. Highly recommended, 5 stars.
