Review of House of Eden

This nursery is excellent and I have no hesitations in recommending it to anyone. The staff have been amazing with our son and we can't thank them enough for all they've done for him particularly helping to settle him as this was his first experience of childcare. They've also been very flexible when we've had to alter his hours, (sometimes at short notice).

Review of House of Eden

First impressions mean everything and from stepping through the door I knew this was the perfect place for my child to be. All staff are friendly and welcoming, they offer support and advice on anything and everything and my child's care and happiness is paramount to them. My daughter's confidence has boosted since starting, her social skills are rapidly developing and staff support and challenge her to meet individual next steps. There is always an exciting range of activities for the children and staff happily discuss and record my childs individual interests, achievements and next targets. I am so pleased that I chose House of Eden staff to help raise my daughter, I couldn't ask for anything better.

Review of House of Eden

Absolutely outstanding Nursery, My little boy has loved his time in the room downstairs, he now looks forward to a whole year upstairs in the pre school room. They even get a well balanced full dinner every day as well as healthy snacks and water is always available for them. Well done to all the staff.

Review of House of Eden

Staff are incredibly caring and friendly and both boys settled straight away. Staff are helpful and always find time for the parents. The nursery is very accommodating. We contacted many nurseries who were unable to accommodate our situation but the House of Eden did so without question. Facilities are excellent along with a lovely menu that is balanced and varied. The House of Eden is excellent value for money. Our boys couldn't be happier.

Review of House of Eden

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

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

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

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

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.

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.

Review of House of Eden

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.
