Review of House of Eden on Monday 24 February 2014 by Laura Adamson (Mother of child)

I sent my son to nursery from 8 months and it was the best decision. He has developed so fast in such a short space of time. Within 1 month he was crawling and has now decided to pull himself up. The staff are amazing and I feel that they know my son so well and they have helped him develop into an amazing character. Keep up the good work!

Review of House of Eden on Thursday 21 March 2013 by Charly T (Mother of 4 year old twin boys)

My children have attended this nursery since they were 8 months old and still attend for after school club every day. The facilities are excellent and play is always both fun and educational. The ability to have a memory stick containing information and images of my children's time in nursery is invaluable, as their father lives abroad this allows him the opportunity to keep right up to date with their progress and day to day lives. My children love every minute of their time at nursery and the staff are second to none! A real home from home.

Review of House of Eden on Wednesday 6 March 2013 by Karina Armstrong (Parent)

My two year old twins started here last October and although they only attend one morning a week, the staff really take the time to ensure they are fully involved in all activities. They have reassured us that my little boy enjoys himself, despite separation anxiety when he arrives. The twins are always full of chat about what they've done and really enjoy their time there. Communication is great from all levels and their security arrangements are very good.....we have been left to wait a few times whilst they check who we are which is very important to safe guard the children. Very impressed.

Review of House of Eden on Monday 4 March 2013 by Jemma Kilkenny (Parent)

This is an amazingly high standard nursery-the care they give each individual child is exceptional. My daughter has flourished while in this nursery and the partnership with parents mean I am always confident we're on the same page with her care/development. The variety in activities and learning means she always has lots of new exciting things to tell me each week! Couldn't recommend the nursery and staff enough!

Review of House of Eden on Wednesday 27 February 2013 by Victoria Whitfield (Mother of 3 children)

As a mother of 3 that all attend this nursery I could not return to work without their help and support. The staff go that extra mile to cater for the children's needs and the parents needs. All 3 of my children are articulate, confident and very happy - House of Eden Nursery has played a huge part in their early years to which I am hugely grateful for, for the amazing little people they have become. I recommend this nursery to everyone as it exceeds our expectations every day.

Review of House of Eden on Wednesday 27 February 2013 by Phil Whitfield (Father of 3 children, Ben, Christon, Rosie)

As a father of 3 the nursery have been exceptional and highly flexible in meeting the needs of working parents. The staff always have a can do approach and have always been there to help when our needs have changed. The benefits to out childrens upbringing has been nothing short of amazing. Not only do they obviously follow a national curriculum for our childrens development but more importantly for us, they have provided a fertile ground for our children to develop social awareness, self esteem in a loving environment to show their personalities.

This is the first time I have been to the nursery and I am extremely happy with it. As I am new I get stopped at the door by staff that don't recognise me, I think this highlights the excellent safeguarding policies they have in place. A fantastic nursery that provides outstanding care!

I am the mother of a 1 year old boy and also a 7 year old girl. I used this nursery when she was a baby and was impressed with the care she received. My little boy also now attends this nursery and I am very pleased with how well they have settled him in. I know that his care will continue.

Review of House of Eden on Friday 22 February 2013 by Adele Barrett (Parent)

My daughter has thrived at the House of Eden since attending as a pre-schooler after moving from another local pre-school. Her confidence has improved and she is extremely happy here. The staff are extremely security concussions, trustworthy, hardworking and above all genuine. My daughter has now started school and I have kept her enrolled in the after school club which she loves and I usually have to spend five mins persuading her to leave House of Eden of an evening! The centre manager is highly professional and always aims to be as flexible and accommodating as she possibly can whilst still running a business. I find her approachable, genuinely friendly and above all I know that her main concern is to ensure that the children and cared for and nurtured by her team with highest possible standards. I would not hesitate to recommend House of Eden to other parents.

Review of House of Eden on Wednesday 20 February 2013 by Imran Kassim (Father of 16 month old boy)

The staff and management provide such an exemplary service. besides being very caring and supportive of the growth and developmental needs of my son. I can see that they are all very dedicated in their profession. I have seen my son being nurtured and cared for and I am more than happy with his splendid progress. The staff keep us both updated regularly, as well as giving us feedback continually on Samuel's progress. I would definitely not hesitate in recommending them to other parents.

Review of House of Eden on Monday 18 February 2013 by Lynne Simpson (Mother of Child)

My 2 year old has attended House of Eden full time since he was 4 months old. I cannot praise the staff enough!. My son has a fantastic time at nursery and is coming on in leaps and bounds. It's so important to a parent to be able to go to work knowing that their child is happy and safe. House of Eden staff are fantastic and always available to offer helpful advice and guidance.

My daughter joined this nursery age 1 year and has developed here and will continue to until she goes to school. She has received great care here and has fab relationships with the staff members.
