Review of Kids@BT9
We are delighted with the care and attention our son gets from all of the staff at Kids@BT9 - from Jill and all the team in the Baby Room and even staff from other rooms. Everyone is professional, friendly and cant do enough for us. The facilities are fantastic with lots of different activities to choose from, I definitely think our son's development has accelerated from the interraction with other babies but also from the support and care he gets from the staff. We have total peace of mind knowing he is being looked after in a safe, secure and loving environment.

Review of Kids@BT9

Excellent nursery led by a superb manager, Jill McWilliams. The staff are all very enthusiastic, friendly and interested in the children in their care. Super facilities: very bright and a good selection of toys/equipment and an excellent outdoor space. Our kids loved their time at Kids@BT9 and we only moved on because of my son's preschool place.

A totally secure, safe environment where the children are encouraged to socialise with other children whilst learning social skills and communication skills.

Review of Kids@BT9

Kids@BT9 is a fantastic nursery and I would highly reccomend it. The staff are very friendly and genuinely care about the children. My daughter loves the girls who look after her and looks forward to going to nursery every day. She has learned so much in just one year there and is constantly surprising me with new words that she has learned relating to the various themes and activities each month. The facilities are modern and well maintained and the menu is varied, healthy and appealing. It is great to have the peace of mind of knowing that my daughter is happy and safe whilst at nursery.

Review of Kids@BT9

There is a warm welcome when you feel vulnerable leaving off your children, but the staff did more than expected to put me at ease. The staff are professional and loving towards my children. I can see their development coming on in leaps and bounds. The preschool program is excellent - I'm already getting corrected by my 4 year old! I had used a Cleardays Nurery before and was pleased, Kids@BT9 has raised the bench mark again. I fully recommend Kids@BT9.

Review of Kids@BT9

The most striking thing about Kids@BT9 is the fantastic location (a minute drive from Lisburn Rd but a world away from noise and traffic) and a large play area + garden at the back. Spacious car park also means a stress-free and safe drop off & pick up. Staff & the management are very accommodating and know our child very well. But the most important thing is that our son loves going there and is reaching his developmental milestones so (too!) fast.

Review of Kids@BT9

Kids @ BT9 is a fabulous nursery. My son loves it! He looks forward to going in the morning and the the staff are excellent, fun and approachable. It is a fabulous clean and bright environment, with lots of interactive and educational toys for little ones to play with. It also has safe and secure outdoor play areas to suit each age group. The food is good too, my son is a fussy eater at home but at nursery he is overcoming his fussy habits, making dinner times at home more pleasant! My son has come on leaps and bounds since going to Kids@BT9. Great Nursery couldn't recommend it enough.

Exceptional surroundings (environment that is comfortable, modern and welcoming). Fantastic staff that are friendly, fun, approachable and have the skills to excite and educate my daughter every day. Great facilities, educational and fun toys, books and apparatus. Great educational programme, themes of teaching that I can see have an impact on my daughters vocabulary and general knowledge. Peace of mind, from day one I felt very comfortable leaving her there and she is very settled and content in every room.

Review of Kids@BT9

I would have no hesitation in recommending Kids@BT9. The management (Jill) and staff are very professional and caring towards the children. My little boy really enjoys his time there, he loves all the arranged activities, messy play(sand, water, painting etc). Kids@BT9 have great outdoor play areas and we get a report daily which is really useful. We also get a monthly newsletter, which keeps us up to date with what's being discussed and explored in his room - brilliant.

Kids@BT9 is a great place for children to learn and have fun. The teachers are friendly and supportive. They create a motivating classroom setting that encourages kids to play, share and develop. They organise good school activities. They have a nice spacious playground for children to play and ride on trikes. To sum it all up. I would recommend this nursery to all parents. .
