My son has attended this nursery since it was newly established. The staff are very friendly, trustworthy and approachable. Unlike other nurseries we attended, YMCA offers 6-hour sessions which worked well for my child and also my working hours. My son loves going to this preschool and has developed so many skills here. We will miss this happy environment when he moves on to school in Sept this year.

Our child has been attending the nursery since February and loves it. He is very happy in the nursery, and I'm happy he enjoys it. I like the relationship he has with all of the carers and they are truly all lovely, professional and very caring people.

The nursery improved amazingly since they moved, they have great ideas that keep improving the facilities for kids. I love the forest area and the mud kitchen and all the activities they do with the kids. I can see my boy thriving there. I would definitely recommend this nursery!

The staff at Happy Days are warm, caring, lovely and always try to accommodate the children's needs. The children have lots of outside play time and lots of creative activities. My children have always been very happy, made lots of friends and are clearly very fond of the staff. It's very hard to leave your young children with other people, but happy days have made this much easier by making me confident they are well cared for.

Fantastic environment for children to grow in. The staff are all very caring and have great activities planned every day. They also take into account child's interests and try to build on them. Lots of outside play too.

Always feel completely at ease leaving my little boy even in the beginning, now he is excited on nursery days and can't wait to get there.
Food is great too sometimes would not mind lunch there myself.

Having sent my eldest child to Tiddlywinks, I was certain I wanted my youngest daughter to attend as our experience of their staff, setting and level of care was excellent from day one.

My child started the nursery in 2016. Over the year, my child has become really confident. She is always keen to go to nursery, she is happy and cared for with love and attention. The nursery has great outdoor facilities and a fantastic team of staff that are always delivering beyond expectation.

My daughter has attended Chapel House since May 2017. So far my daughter seems to really enjoy herself. The nursery have been very welcoming and understanding - especially in relation to personal family issues affecting my child's attendance.
The staff are all extremely friendly and very experienced.

I am very happy that my daughter has been at Building Blocks Pre-School. She has learnt a lot of words, has done activities and made friends. She is always happy to stay and play. All the staff are very good, the food is great, the games, activities are wonderful and enjoyable. I'll recommend the nursery in the future.

Wow, what a nursery. I visited with a friend and we have registered our children to start in September for 30 hours free. I found it really difficult to find a nursery that will accommodate the hours I work and offer my child the funded only sessions. He also has a lot of allergies and I met with their cook who assured me that he will be catered for. The manager showed us around and all the staff seemed friendly and bubbly and were so happy which made all the difference.

My son (16 months) started here in January (11 months) full time and loves going there.
The staff is absolutely brilliant with the kids and I love the fact that they keep parents updated on how days were spent via an app. As a mom it feels like you're not missing out on anything and it makes me happy to see that the little one is having a good time. They do a lot of activities with the kids and always try to involve the parents where possible.

We sent out eldest son to another nursery and we thought the service was fantastic but Kinder Haven is in a class of its own with regards to our youngest son.
Fantastic support throughout the company, owner, keyworker, manager and chef.
The building itself I can't fault and out must check out the outside area.

My son has attended this nursery since 2015, he is due to start school in September and I know he will miss this nursery very much.
He has made so much progress here and he loves it, along with all the friends he has made.
The teachers and staff are superb, I could not recommend this nursery enough to anyone.

The care at Banana Moon has been really excellent. My son really struggled to be left with anyone and the staff had to work extremely hard to help. They let me stay for extended settling sessions and were really flexible about approaches to help us. The baby room is much larger than others I have seen and has a separate sleep room and change area which was important for us. They also have a lot of time outside in a safe play area which was also important. The staff were really helpful when my son was diagnosed with a milk allergy and they are really affectionate towards him.

Although children have key workers (who are excellent) they may not be around 100% of the time and there are bank staff as well, which can be an issue with attachment. All the staff, however, without exception have been very professional and cared for my son beautifully. They have also given us lots of helpful advice too and transitioned him between rooms well.

Thank You for your kind words Laura - We are keyworkers for our families as well as our children. We are pleased to hear we have been able to make these transitions as comfortable as possible for you as parents as well as for your little one. We continue to maintain our regular bank staff within the rooms to support the attachment bonds for the children.

Very caring and friendly staff. Lovely facilities and great outdoor space. Good range of activities done with children. Would like a few more comments on parentszone. Overall, very happy and my daughter also very happy.

Brought my daughter back to this nursery after taking her out for a few months due to fees. I looked at 4 different nurseries and the standard was very poor. I registered her straight back to Asquith. You pay for the care and the quality of the nursery and my daughter loves it here. The girls in Toddler 2 are amazing, she never wants to come home sand is always so excited to come to nursery.

My experience has been very good. My son only started in Jan 2017 and he has come a long way. The staff are very friendly and interact well with my son. They inform me of what he has done during the day and what he has eaten. There are lots of toys to play with and their outdoor area is very good, with lots to do. At a recent parents evening, they gave me my son's folder with all the things that he's been doing and saying, it was really good to see.

My son loves attending Happy Days. He feels safe and cared for. He also has learnt so much during his time at Happy Days. All of the staff are so friendly, not only to my son but also to us as parents. Communication is essential to trusting staff and this is also shown by staff. My son has lots of health conditions, including one life-threatening condition. Staff have been amazing dealing with his health and always happy to talk.

I really like this nursery, when I started looking for nurseries for my son, I did see a few before but Reigate Day Nursery was the only one I was certain about putting my son into. The management and staff were extremely friendly and approachable. I really liked the layout and each room fits well for the different age groups too. The nursery is very clean as well and I love the idea of no shoes in the baby room. My son is very happy and is learning/talking so much more, so I am very pleased.
