Review of Kids@BT9 on Tuesday 19 August 2014 by Marie Ashmore (Nanny to 2 1/2 year old boy & 15 month old girl)

A totally secure, safe environment where the children are encouraged to socialise with other children whilst learning social skills and communication skills. The staff have become our friends over the last two years and due to their warm, welcoming attitude we feel at home and cared for at Kids@BT9, Belfast.

My girls love going in, the staff are very kind and friendly, lovely family atmosphere. Very healthy lunch and snacks which both girls finish - so they must be good! Staff are very knowledgeable and will always keep you informed of your child's developments or if they are ill. Great team, great nursery, couldn't recommend enough!

Review of Kids@BT9 on Friday 27 June 2014 by Lynda R (Parent)

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 on Sunday 25 August 2013 by Marta (Parent)

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.

It is a family friendly warm environment and the girls are all lovely. It is new, clean and full of new fun toys for the babies to play with. The girls are caring. My daughter loves it. They are very accommodating regarding breakfast, snacks, meals and sleep times. I couldn't recommend it highly enough.

Review of Kids@BT9 on Tuesday 18 June 2013 by Michelle Bamford (Mother (of a 3 year old son))

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.

Nursery is lovely and modern with very friendly staff and management. My little boy loves going into the girls and hasn't cried being left off since the day he started. The food is freshly made on site and facilities are excellent.

Review of Kids@BT9 on Tuesday 4 June 2013 by Katrina D (Mother of 2 year old daughter)

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 on Tuesday 4 June 2013 by Pamela Boyd (Mother of 2 year old son)

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. .
