Lovely nursery with nice and friendly staff. My daughter enjoys her time spent here and I can tell that she's learning new things every day. The nursery has got a beautiful space outdoors and they make the most of it which is great.

I am very happy with this nursery. My son is very comfortable being there. He always comes back to me a very happy little boy. The nursery is done up really nicely with a new outside space for children to play. If you ask me what my favourite is, I have to say it's the food. Children are provided with freshly cooked lunches every day. My son is having seconds of it. Overall, really pleased.

My fifteen-month-old son absolutely loves this nursery. The staff our lovely. Children are always entertained and cared for. There are lots of different activities for them to take part in, from Boogie Babies (an external company they bring in), sandpit play, painting, outdoor activity play, and walks down to see the horses etc. Myself and my partner both attended this nursery over thirty years ago and it's so nice to see it is still run by the same family.

As a grandmother who has worked in the childcare sector for numerous years, I can't rate this nursery highly enough. The kind and caring staff are in tuned into the children's needs and provide a safe environment for them. The recent investment to the nursery has been well received by the children at this wonderful setting.

Dolphins Day Nursery, Horsforth is fantastic. My two year old started six weeks ago and all of the staff have worked so hard to help him settle in. From the cuddles he gets to help him manage the difficult few minutes when he gets there, to the picture of me on the wall he can go to for reassurance, to having his own key worker who keeps a close eye on him, his own peg with his picture on and his own cup - there is lots of effort made to help him settle in and feel at home.

Days seem jam-packed with activity and staff post photos of what he's been up to every day. This ranges from outdoor play to music to art and sometimes even features special activities such as visits from a small animal petting zoo at no extra cost. Interaction with other kids is fostered and his skills development monitored and rated. I also get a verbal and written handover at the end of the day so I know exactly what he's eaten/done and even how many poos he's done!

I couldn't recommend it highly enough.

My little boy started settling in sessions at Glen Jakes a couple of months ago. He was one and had always been at home with me. He found it very difficult to be separated from me and was very upset all day, every day, for the first few weeks. I was so impressed with the way that the staff at Glen Jakes dealt with the situation. They were patient and caring. They allowed him to have extra settling in sessions and were reassuring and supportive. He is now really enjoying his time there and is happy when I drop him off. He has developed a lot of new skills over the past couple of months and is clearly learning there. The staff are all approachable and easy to talk to. They are warm and affectionate with my little boy and I really feel that they know him well and care about him. He clearly loves them! This knowledge has really helped my transition back to work and I am extremely grateful to them all.

He is very happy and confident and is coming on in leaps and bounds. The atmosphere at the nursery is lovely and all the children seem to be having a lot of fun. We would recommend the nursery to anyone looking for childcare.

Nothing is too much trouble for them. I am confident that my boys are in excellent care when I leave them. I would recommend this setting to anyone.

My son is always so excited about going to nursery, he's so happy when I drop him off, giving every staff member big smiles, and is always enjoying himself and happy when I pick him up.

He's been like that since he started at nine months old and you can't fake those reactions at that age!

I love everything about nursery from the friendly and supportive staff members, great food, cleanliness and activities. And I feel that my son clearly being so happy is a testimony to how great it is.

My daughter absolutely loves coming to St Andrew's, I instantly knew this was the right nursery for her as soon as I walked through the door. She has been here for over 2 years now and everyday I'm proven why I made the right choice! All the staff are amazing and I know they have so much passion for the job they do and so much compassion for the children. It's a truly amazing nursery and seeing the huge smile on my daughters face when I drop her off each day tells me so!

Rebecca Leach, Deputy Manager at St Andrew's Day Nursery responded to this review on 23 Oct 2017:

Thank you so much for this wonderful review, it's a pleasure to look after your daughter and she definitely brings many smiles and more to her teachers' faces!

My child started at Tops last month and although he was unsure of starting at a new setting, he was welcomed warmly and has settled in brilliantly. He enjoys talking about what he has done during the day and often mentions the new friends that he has made.
Tops offer a wide range of activities, indoors and outdoors, rain or shine.
All staff are very approachable and are always happy to answer any questions.

I have two children that attend Butterfly Lodge Nursery.

I wouldn't send my children anywhere else.

The staff are excellent with the children and the management are very approachable and friendly.

Children receive three cooked meals a day by their own chef which are healthy and provide the child with the goodness needed.

Both my children go on regular trips out and regularly play activities in the garden.

Couldn't recommend this nursery any more.

Our daughter attends the nursery twice a week and has a really positive experience. The online learning journal gives us a glimpse of what she gets up to, what she’s interested in and helps us to maintain activities we are doing at home already, or gives us good ideas! Staff are excellent and consistent with their quality of care. Location is ideal and the nursery rooms are of a high standard.

Sycamore House has gone through a period of change and is now coming out of the other side for the better. With ongoing changes and improvements, this is becoming a great place for children to start their learning. The staff do care whilst management are continually looking at the ways to develop themselves and their staff in order to enrich the child’s time at the nursery.
The food is prepared and cooked fresh daily and the meat is sourced locally while the menus offer a balanced, nutritious diet.
The only real negative is the lack of outside space, but with the nursery being an old converted house, it does offer a certain quirkiness to it.
Communication with the parents is good with regular posts on social media and email updates and you do feel like you’re being listened to whether it be a suggestion, question or issue.
All in all, Sycamore House knows where it’s shortcomings are, but is working hard to address these which makes it a welcoming place for children and parents to come.

Courtney, Nursery Manager at Sycamore House Day Nursery responded to this review on 23 Oct 2017:

Hello Andrew, thank you for taking the time to write a review about us at Sycamore House and giving us some feedback. As you are aware we are on a continuous journey of reflection and improvement striving to improve our practice and the service we offer!

Poplars Nursery is not only Ofsted "Outstanding" but from a parent's view, it is also outstanding.

It has just finished building extensions to provide even more of a safe learning experience for children and the nursery stayed open throughout the renovations and did not affect in anyway my child's nursery experience. It's a loving, warm, caring experience not just for the children who attend but also for the parents. Thank you Poplars.

Thank you for such a high accolade. It is humbling to hear such lovely praise from someone who knows the industry so well. We respect that our parents are just as individual as their children and value their input tremendously. Thank you.

Both my children are at this nursery and love it. The staff are great with the children- welcoming, friendly and available for hugs and comforting words for any nervous or upset children! They keep me well informed of my children's progress and there always seems to be events on to help keep the children interested. I couldn't be happier with how my children have settled there and know they will miss nursery when they leave!
