Excellent facilities. Bright, light, open, spacious rooms. Clean. Lovely staff. Happy children. Each child has their own diary in which their key worker writes an account of each day, sometimes including pictures and photos. Excellent communication from the nursery generally. Varied and exciting activities e.g pets, all sorts of toys, visits to local farm etc. Children are able to go in the garden every day. Varied meals and snacks. Flexibility of booking extra days when needed.

Review of Red Bus Nursery & Pre-School on Wednesday 2 April 2014 by Louise T (Mother of 16 monh old twins)

We are entirely satisfied with Red Bus Nursery. The staff are friendly, caring and considerate. They have good facilities and come up with lots of activities and innovate ideas to entertain the babies. There also seems to be lots of care in the community through their schemes. They do lots of events to involve parents and create a good network. A very thoughtful nursery and staff are very good with the children.

Review of Red Bus Nursery & Pre-School on Monday 24 March 2014 by Catherine E (Mother of Child)

I've been really impressed with this new nursery. My son started in the baby room and i felt the quality of care and affection he received was excellent. He is now in toddlers and they find a really good range of ways to promote healthy stimulating environment. Some days my son doesn't want to leave when we go to pick him up at the end of the day. The staff are always pleasant and professional and seem to genuinely like the children.

Review of Red Bus Nursery & Pre-School on Thursday 13 March 2014 by Katie H (Mother of 14 month old son)

Our son has settled really well in the babies room and his key worker and deputy are absolutely charming and fantastic with the children. The notebook method of communication (bringing in and taking home a notebook each day) is so valuable. It helped our son settle in because I could make suggestions on how to help him sleep etc and we love reading the reports of what he has been up to and seeing the photos pasted in. The nursery has also helped with emergency sessions we needed.

Review of Red Bus Nursery & Pre-School on Monday 10 March 2014 by Sharon (Parent)

I would like to say how great I think this nursery is. My son started in their toddler room last January & is now in their per-school room & he has come on leaps & bounds since going there & we are so pleased with how well he has done. Our daughter has just started there in the toddler room & I am very confident she will do just as well. The staff are great & very helpful & understanding, I feel very happy with leaving my children in their care.

Review of Red Bus Nursery & Pre-School on Tuesday 4 March 2014 by Karen Wiffen (Parent)

Since my very first contact with Red Bus over one and a half years ago, they have been nothing but excellent and supportive. All the staff are professional, engaged, motivated and above all genuinely caring. Both my boys, now 3.5yrs and 1 yr old have such a great time, being educated and developed in a really stimulating atmosphere. The facilities are superb, so much thought has gone into each age and stage of child and the appropriate activities are supplied in abundance. With indoor and outdoor space, the children get to run around and learn in a safe environment and the food supplied throughout the day to fuel all this is plentiful and nutritious. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Red Bus to any parent.

Review of Red Bus Nursery & Pre-School on Wednesday 26 February 2014 by Victoria and Alexander Hirst (Parents)

Our daughter started with Red Bus when she turned 1 in the baby unit. We chose Red Bus because we were so impressed with the quality of staff and the open rooms. Her year in Babies did not disappoint. Her key worker was fantastic with her and she loved the activities - a mini gym, lovely upstairs outside area with toys and gardening equipment, and great facilities for messy play and food. It's a shoe free area so safe for children, and we loved seeing all the art work on the walls as well as photos of the children enjoying their time there. Her key worker worked with us to help her sleep during the day, and with concerns we had with her eating. She had a great bond with her key worker, but also had a fantastic time with all the other carers. We felt we could talk to any one of them about her development. She had a bit of a blip when she moved down to the Toddler room where she was a bit unsettled. We were able to voice our concerns to the owner and manager. She is much more settled again, and loves her days at nursery. She enjoys playing with the dollies, in the home corner, listening to stories and singing. The outside facility is great and they go out whatever the weather. Our daughter has made some great friends, and we know she's having a great time. We have a good relationship with all the staff in the Toddler room and again feel we can talk to any of them about her development - currently having potty training discussions! We are surveyed for our thoughts and can see suggestions put into place so feel listened to. We're thrilled with her development and can't believe a child at just over 2 can count to 20, say the names of the week and recite the alphabet. We're pleased they're working with us to give her such a great start in life.

Our grandson really enjoys his days here. The rooms are spacious, the staff are lovely. There is lots of imaginative play every session with a different theme each day. Every age group gets to enjoy the outdoor space even when the weather is not so good.

Review of Red Bus Nursery & Pre-School on Thursday 2 January 2014 by Phaeny Kesisoglou White (Mother of 2 1/2 year old twins)

I would definitely recommend this nursery as we (me and my husband) are very pleased in all aspects. The staff and management are very knowledgeable and kind and have given us some very useful advice (e.g potty training, tantrums). The facilities are spacious and bright and our children love going to nursery.
