Kinder at Ashford Godinton

Our son attended the nursery from the age of 9 months. He's been very well taken care of. He is 2 years 4 months old now and likes it a lot. Busy Bees has great facilities, it's clean, has very friendly and professional staff, who are flexible and adapt according to the children's needs. We're very happy with the nursery. The only criticism is the almost constantly overflowing bin outside the nursery building. Often there's rubbish flying around after the bags have been torn by animals. Not a great environment near children.

Kim Ziolkowski, Nursery Manager at Kinder at Ashford Godinton responded to this review on 30 Sep 2015:

As a part of our Zero Waste to Landfill initiative we are trying our best to deal with all rubbish in an environmentally friendly manner. We are aware that there is an issue with the bin and we are doing our very best to resolve the issue as quickly as possible. In the meantime, our staff continuously tidy up outside to contain the rubbish, to avoid it affecting the nursery and public. These bins are at the front of the building, somewhere that children do not have access to, so the children are not affected by this. We look forward to getting this small issue resolved soon, to strengthen our nursery’s commitment on sending zero waste to landfill.
