Reviewer Connection to Natural Choice Nurseries Ltd - Charfield
Recommendation submitted from a Postal Card by Lucy H (Mother of Child) on Wednesday 29 October 2014. Recommendation relates to October 2014.
We've only been at this nursery for 3 weeks and both of my children have settled very quickly. They're happy, especially the 3 year old, she bounces into class and has so much to tell me about her day. My son, who has never had a routine, has naturally settled into his own routine and is eating all sorts of lovely foods, which he seems to be enjoying. Overall I am incredibly happy to put my children in NCN, the staff are wonderful and all of them clearly enjoy their jobs/days.
