Flaxton Children's Nursery

My children have been going since they were 9 months and they love it. Their confidence and skills have increased greatly. They have both developed close bonds with the staff and as it's a small nursery still have lots of contact with staff from the baby room now they are in toddlers/pre-school. They are very flexible and fit them in for extra sessions if needed. We feel the staff really know and care about the children. The facilities are great and apparently the mushroom risotto is fantastic!

Flaxton Children's Nursery

I can't recommend this nursery enough. My daughter has been in the preschool class for the last year. She has made massive progress with her social skills and learning routines. The staff are extremely helpful and understanding the bonds they have with the children are outstanding. I was a bit apprehensive putting my child into a nursery setting however, I am so happy I did as the benefits for my child are clear to see. I am now planning on sending my son there in a few months.

Flaxton Children's Nursery

Fantastic nursery who brought our son on so much in terms of his physical, academic and social development. Our little girl has been since 10 months, in the baby room, toddlers and preschool and adores it! The staff are so friendly and helpful. Great new outdoor development!

Flaxton Children's Nursery

I cannot recommend this nursery high enough, my little girl has been attending since she was 7 months old and is so far ahead, content, happy and confident. The staff all get to know you, as a family, and work with you and your individual needs. Very flexible and accommodating. My favourite aspect of Flaxton Nursery is that it's a small nursery with permission to expand, but keeps to what it does best. You're not just a number at this nursery!

Flaxton Children's Nursery

Children are very well behaved and really enjoy their surroundings, especially the outdoor activities. The children all seem very happy and my son loves going. The nursery has been very flexible when I got made redundant and then subsequently got another job requiring more days. The facilities are good and there is ample parking for drop off/pick up.

Flaxton Children's Nursery

Flaxton nursery and all its staff made the transition of my daughter starting nursery a much easier process. The settling sessions were handled perfectly, increasing in time in a way that allowed my daughter to become familiar with her new surroundings. She settled straight into life there easily and for the past year has had a wonderful time making friends and getting involved in all activities. Her learning progress has been noticed and documented well with nursery. She gets a good, balanced diet of food each day.
