My child has been at this nursery for over a year now and over the last few months, we have seen some dramatic improvements. We could not be happier with my child's key person, she knows out daughter inside out and seems genuinely excited to see our daughter every day.

Charlotte Pooler, Nursery Manager at Banana Moon Day Nursery Moseley responded to this review on 20 Nov 2017:

Thank You for your review. It is a pleasure working alongside you all as a family and seeing the growth and development within the setting.

Both of my children have recently moved to Chrysalis from another local nursery. From the first time I enquired to look round the nursery, they have gone out of their way to make the children and our family feel extremely welcome. Little touches like a welcome pack for me to enjoy, whilst the children were at their first settling in session, to make sure they have their pictures on their coat peg from day one made the transition seamless.
The standard of the staff is fantastic, with some of them being there for over 20 years (I think this speaks volumes) and the progress in my children's development has been fantastic. The children always appear happy, calm and content whenever I arrive. I couldn't have asked for more in a nursery.
Thank you, everyone, for taking such good care of my children when I work, I very much look forward to being part of the Chrysalis family for many years to come (especially now as you have a holiday club too!)

I feel like my daughter has settled in very well since moving over to the tweeny room. Staff are very welcoming throughout the building. The new bouncy room seems to be going well and the pre-school room is good also.

I cannot praise The Old Vicarage nursery enough. My second child is now in attendance and is already loving the baby room. He's come on leaps and bounds already and loves the girls. I feel blessed to have my children at a nursery with such a lovely set of people who are happy to help with things both inside the nursery and at home, weaning is a great example for us recently.
Having already has one child travel throughout the nursery from baby to preschool and number 2 now starting the same journey I can honestly say it's fantastic. The environment is excellent and the atmosphere is great. So nice to be met every day with a warm smile. My older child loves coming back to nursery to say hello to everyone, and again everyone is so welcoming to her. All round fantastic nursery.

Ducklings is an excellent setting. The staff are all very friendly and do a lot with the children.

I really like how the children get to go outside to play regardless of the weather.

My child really enjoys coming here and never wants to leave.

They have been flexible and accommodating.

I would 1 million percent recommend the nursery and we often do.

Really happy with the setting Ducklings Private. I am really impressed with the approachability of the staff and the genuine care they have for each child.

I cannot thank the nursery enough for the foundation and a perfect mix of playing/learning whilst my son has been in their care.

Thank you.

I knew that this was the right nursery for us within moments of arriving to look around. The staff are lovely, and the set up is perfect, we love wooden toys, and open-ended play, and encouraging independence at home and I could see that this nursery would continue to provide these things for my daughter. I was very nervous about leaving her for the first time but they made the transition much easier and have been so supportive. There is a gorgeous feel to the nursery and I feel 100% relaxed about leaving my daughter there, made even easier with the super app that lets me see what she is eating or whether she has slept, etc...
Thank you all, you're wonderful!!

I was amazed at what a difference a good nursery could make to my daughter. She has been given the best possible start in a safe, caring and nurturing environment. She has enjoyed all sorts of fun activities both inside and outside which I could never replicate at home. Her confidence has blossomed and she is prepared and excited about all future learning opportunities. She has grown alongside a fabulous group of friends who support her and excite her through her learning journey. This is all possible due to the inspirational staff.

My son was at the nursery before starting Primary School and I can not recommend it more highly. It gave him a wonderful introduction to school life and took the worry away from us about starting school. The environment they provide for them to learn and play is fantastic and the amazing addition of forest school and stave house. My son was incredibly happy and my daughter is starting soon, which she is very excited about. I would highly recommend South Lee Nursery to any parent in this area.

The Acorn staff are what makes the nursery. They take time to understand each child and provide the support and nurturing they need to explore and develop in a safe and fun environment.

They always give time at the end of the day to provide an update on the child's day and to support us in advice and guidance for the continuing their learning at home.

My daughter has been going to Play and Learn for 2 years since she was 13 months old. From the moment that I was shown around the nursery, it was clear that they place the happiness and the development of each child at the centre of everything they do. They place a big emphasis on learning through play, and in my view, this is really effective. I’m beyond pleased with the rate of my daughter's development, but more importantly, she is really happy at the nursery. She currently attends 3 days a week, but frequently asks to go on her days off!

The staff are fantastic and clearly enjoy what they do. They give detailed feedback at the end of each day, an annual parents evening and regular opportunities for you to get involved with activities which is a nice way to observe your child in the setting.
The setting itself is fantastic, with a nice indoor and outdoor space for all.

Thank you so much, Kate, that's lovely to hear! It is a pleasure to have your daughter in our setting and to work in partnership with such caring parents.

The setting is a new setting but it has very good facilities which children will enjoy. My daughter attends the nursery and she is happy in the nursery. The nursery is up to standard and the staffs are fantastic in the way they relate to children and the parents.

My son joined Snowflakes Nursery when he was nine months. As a parent, I wanted a nursery that would be caring, professional and that provided a safe environment for my son to learn, develop social skills and reach all the necessary milestones from baby to toddler/pre-school.
Snowflakes Nursery was all of the above and much more. Words cannot fully describe my gratitude for the nursery management, teachers and other valuable staff members.
My son left the nursery when he was nearly 4 years old, only because we were moving house to another area. I can honestly say that they will always have a special place in our hearts.
I would like to take to take this opportunity to thank Snowflakes Nursery for all their fantastic work and dedication.

My daughter spent 3 very happy years at St Ives nursery when we first moved to the area and now my son spends 4 very happy days here a week. The nursery is absolutely fantastic and my son especially sees the staff as an extension of his family. I've seen first hand the investment, time and resources that the staff have put into the nursery and the children thrive. The staff turnover is low, the same staff that looked after my daughter are now looking after my son. It is just the loveliest place for little ones, and it makes the guilt of being a working mum that much easier knowing your child is safe, happy and making lovely friends. Can't praise it highly enough!

My 3 year old has been here since he was 12 months old and he loves it!
Of all the nurseries we looked at, this one felt the most homely and I felt the most comfortable about leaving my son here. It is a lovely old house so has different rooms for different ages whilst at the same time, it is open and transparent which I really like too.
The girls are lovely, as are all the staff- the office staff are very professional and friendly and they are always very understanding. The cooks are too and always say hello, it’s like a little family really.
If anything has ever been bothering me or my son the staff have always offered advice and reassurance to us which is really helpful. I would highly recommend St Ives Nursery and some of my friend's children have also chosen this nursery and are very happy.
