The nursery is fantastic - I can't think of anywhere better to send my child. My older child (aged 8) also attended this nursery too. Staff are very friendly and approachable. The nursery is a very bright and happy place to be. I would have no hesitation in recommending this nursery.

Acorn at Jubilee Wood day nursery has been an amazing nursery. They are all really kind and caring. They care for the children as if their own. They are all happy and friendly and very welcoming. They always have fun and engaging activities which are always based on the childrens' interests.

Lovely nursery. Lots of space and gardens. My granddaughter loves to go. Staff are so nice and look after her every need so well. Nursery parking is good. Safety is very good, food is good and they get lots of fresh fruits for snack.

The Cottage is an excellent nursery. The facilities are exceptional and the staff are friendly and attentive. My daughter is always excited about going to nursery, she's made lots of friends and they've been great at supporting her learning and development.

The toys are in great condition, the outdoor play area is one of the best I've seen and they even have an indoor soft play area.

My daughter is been coming to The Cottage since she was a baby. She settled in beautifully and created some wonderful bonds with all the staff. They are always caring, attentive and gave so much support when I needed help with toilet training.

My daughter has since progressed through to the main nursery and recently transitioned into the preschool room. It's has been amazing to watch how much she has learnt and progressed while having so much fun.

She thoroughly enjoys exploring the large garden, especially the sensory garden and taking care of the pet rabbit Sooty (so much she's convinced she's coming home with us).

I can't wait to watch her continue her journey with you. Thank you so much for everything you have done so far.

My son has been at Nelly's for almost a year now and he could not be happier. The time and dedication they put into making sure he is happy, looked after and learning is amazing. I really enjoyed the nursery outing which was a lot of fun and really nice to get to know other parents and staff. They have been exceptionally helpful with us arranging for nannies and family to do pick ups when needed and have also been very accommodating on the odd day we needed to put him in to nursery on top of our regular days. He is a big lover of being outdoors and there is great outdoor space which he loves playing in and it is great to see him outside enjoying it when we come to pick him up a lot of the time. We have regular contact with his key worker who knows him very well and has a great bond, allowing us to get regular, informal and more formal updates on his progress. It's really nice to have somewhere where we know he is being well looked after and having a lot of fun with his friends, thank you!

I have two children at Active Kids Day Nursery and both have benefited from the engaging and stimulating environment Active Kids provide. The outdoor area is brilliant and I sometimes can't get my youngest to leave at home time when she's busy playing there!
My oldest is in Pre School and has had extra help with a stutter which has helped him enormously over the last few months and my youngest is in small toddlers and has learnt some sign language and her confidence over the last year has grown and grown.
The staff are all so caring and helpful and go out of there way to help with any issues that come up. I highly recommend Active Kids to everyone that asks where my children go to nursery.

The nursery is great. The staff there are all lovely and it’s clear they have the children’s best interests at heart.
They get to know your little ones so well, they know if they’re out of sorts and not happy. They're constantly engaging with them and help them to discover new things.
The facilities are great! Based in an old school, there are tonnes of space for all the activities and there is always a lively happy buzz around the place whenever I’ve gone in.
The menus are all good, varied and balanced and they have an app that you get updates on periodically with videos and pictures.
We’ve been really impressed with everything.

The staff are caring and wonderfully attentive to the needs of the children.
They were very helpful in establishing a routine for our daughter.

The meals are healthy and varied.

Activities are diverse (messy play, painting, going for walks, reading, singing, with specialist classes like yoga and music). The rooms are very clean and tidy, even more so since the facilities received a makeover!

We were kept informed of our daughter's development thanks to photos and videos and there were regular parents meeting.

There is also a weekly newsletter to inform parents as to what their children as a group have been up to and what they will be exploring the following week.

The manager at the time (June 2017) did an incredible job.
Our emails were always answered promptly and our requests dealt with effectively.

Any issue with the child is discussed in private and any incident, no matter how small, is duly reported to the parents.

I highly recommend the nursery to any prospective parents!

My daughter started Tiny Toez when she was a baby. The care she has received is excellent and they cater to all of her needs. The nursery is clean and tidy and the staff are friendly and caring I'm so glad I chose to send her to Tiny Toez. The activities they do with the children are brilliant and the food menu varies each week and promotes healthy eating.

My son has been going to Pumpkin Patch now for nearly a year and he really loves it and has thrived since being there. His speech and development have come on leaps and bounds and the staff and management there are just amazing, caring and friendly. It is a home from home environment which is what I liked about it when I first looked at the nursery and the manager made us feel at home straight away. He is always so happy when I drop him off and pick him up which to me says everything about how great it is there. The staff make sure they do everything they can to make the children feel at home and are so loved and cared for.
The chef is great and cooks lovely nutritious meals that my son loves to eat (mostly!) The outside space is good, with a lovely garden that they go out in all the time. I couldn't recommend this nursery enough.

Over the last 2.5years, my son has had a fantastic time at Harmony House Nursery. During his time there he has developed really well from his time in all of the rooms, he has enjoyed his time thoroughly and the staff are very approachable, very friendly and always put the needs of the children first.
To summarise, I had two children in here at one point and they have and will do well at school, due mainly to their time at Harmony House.

I have two daughters that attend Acorn at Kents Hill. One in the oaks rooms and one recently joining acorns room and both myself and their dad couldn't be happier that they are both there. The staff are all friendly, with great feedback, updates and response to queries. My eldest always comes home explaining to me what she has been doing, the games they have been playing, stories been read and just all the great fun that she has had. I'm happy to say that I would totally recommend the nursery.

I love all the nursery staff and my little boy is very happy in there. He runs towards them every morning and I can see how welcome he is there. The staff are all lovely, kind and professional. They do regular updates on the internal nursery app so parents wouldn't miss out on all the fun their kids have during the day. I can only recommend this place for all the mums looking for a fun, safe and educative place for their little ones!

This is a wonderful nursery where our son has been very happy for over three years. The staff at Nelly's are amazing. They are caring, creative in organising a diverse range of activities to encourage children to explore the world and accommodate each individual child's own personality and needs. Our son has many different allergies and the nursery has been extremely helpful in accommodating his condition. The staff are always very attentive to early signs of the onset of an allergic reaction. They help us find foods and arts and crafts material our son can use and generally manage to make him feel included in celebrations and activities despite his allergies.

George Elliot nursery is an excellent nursery. My daughter and son both attended and I was amazed at their development. That is why my youngest daughter will be attending as well.
They have a great understanding and a good policy on children's dress and behaviour.
My children are in excellent hands and I am happy for them. Mark 90 out of 100.

Friendly named workers who give you a full report of the day. Always approachable and helpful staff who work with parent and child. An example I can give is one child was afraid of monsters and wasn't sleeping well at night. A member of staff arranged circle time where the children spoke about being afraid and what was real and not real, the member of staff informed me when this had taken place and resulted in a good nights sleep.
