Review of Unicorn Nursery Castleford

Finding the right childcare for our son as I returned to work was a daunting task, especially as he had additional physical needs (he had recently been fitted with a hip splint for Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip). On visiting the Unicorn Nursery, the open plan, purpose built rooms and welcoming staff reassured us that this was somewhere that our son would be well looked after with his development and additional needs being at the centre of his care. 8 months later we are extremely happy with the standard of care that our son receives. For the 4 months that he had his splint fitted we were always confident that the staff were able to use it properly for maximum effect on treating his condition. Where his physical development was slightly delayed he was always encouraged to progress in other areas such as his speech and language and social development. It is clear that our son thoroughly enjoys his time at the nursery as he is beaming with pride at the end of every session. The full daily report ensures us that he eats a variety of foods and has taken part in a wide range of activities throughout the day. The staff are all very approachable and friendly with an abundance of enthusiasm and patience for our son. The parents' evening also assures us that every aspect of his development is being observed and evaluated, which gives us a clear outline on where he may need encouragement in some areas and is flourishing in others. Overall the Unicorn Nursery is a delightful childcare provision that I would confidently recommend to any parent/carer.
