I am extremely overhelmed, impressed, proud and satisfied with Tommies Childcare being my son's primary carer until now.
They have done an amazing job helping me with my son's education, growth and development.
Every day my son came home he always had something new to share that he learnt at nursery.
The nursery are very organised, trustworthy, respectful, patient and understanding. Most of all they are very loving, tender and caring with my son.
I am happy and proud to have given him the chance to experience his toddler to preschool stages here.

We have always been very happy with the staff and running of the nursery at Kids Planet Crewe, If I ever needed to change a date or time they were always very helpful and understanding. Never had any problems with my daughter or the nursery. My daughter has been at the nursery for 3 years (leaving the end of July 2017) and she loved her time with her friends and always spoke about the staff and how nice they were in her room.
Would recommend this nursery for anyone looking for childcare from baby to pre-school.

I really like the nursery because it is very clean and the staff are very friendly. My son loves the nursery. He is more active, learning so much and his speech is now fab. As he is a fussy eater, he has started eating food from the menu. He has made friends and loves sharing and caring - this is shown in his behaviour. Keep doing what you are doing.

A friend of mine who had recently been a teacher, before having children herself, recommended Puddleducks to me and I then had other recommendations from other friends when I started thinking about a nursery for my little girl.
I have not been disappointed. the atmosphere is nurturing, loving and fun and my little girl always has a smile on her face.
I know that I have found the best possible place for her whilst I am at work and I know that she is happy - such a relief.

Our son has been going to Daybreak since he was 11 months old and is soon transitioning to the pre-school building.

He loves going there and chats excitedly about his friends and the day's activities when he gets home.

The staff are always friendly and greet us with lots of information about our son's day. They do so with excitement and seem to genuinely care how he's been feeling and getting on, rather than giving the impression of merely reading off a chart.

When our son first settled in, and when he transitioned to the toddler room, we received lots of guidance from management and other staff as well as multiple free settling-in sessions, that all meant that the process was quite easy for both us as parents and our son.

I can't think of much that could be improved as he gets to do lots of exciting activities and develop his social skills.

I love the engagement my son has with both the staff and other children. He is always happy and loves telling us of his daily experiences when he gets home. Recently (due to the arrival of his little sister) there have been a couple of occasions, where he has not wanted to be left in nursery at morning drop-off.

Needless to say, every time I run away !! he settles within minutes and starts getting on with his day.
The staff always go the extra mile when required to inform us that he has settled, which keeps my wife happy and allows her to continue with her day without regrets.

Since our son has been at the nursery he has been so happy due to the level of care he has received from the staff. They are all approachable and put your mind at ease. Our son has shown huge progression in English and Maths due to the activities the nursery put on during the day. The variety of food they put on is also first class. I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone.

Sarah Savage, Operations Manager at Cherubs Ladybrook responded to this review on 24 Jul 2017:

Thank you for your lovely feedback. I will pass it on to the nursery manager and her team.

My daughter loved going to preschool and even though she is excited to go to her new school, she will miss everyone at Mama Bear's.
The staff are so caring and very helpful, I couldn't recommend enough. They have been brilliant.

My daughter has been at the nursery for a year after transferring from another setting. She settled in quickly, has forged strong bonds and friendships with the staff and children and is happy and secure there. She experienced a period of separation anxiety when she found out she was going to be a big sister and the nursery was excellent in handling this - working collaboratively and patiently with us to support her through it.
The staff are capable and caring and turnover is very low. The nursery has a homely, family atmosphere. The children spend a lot of time together and it is nice to see the older children helping the younger children. The manager of the nursery is very hands on and close to the children, yet very responsive, professional and receptive to feedback. Communication is good, with monthly newsletters and daily activity reports. Emails are picked up and responded to quickly and the nursery is very flexible and accommodating with extra sessions and emergency care.

Candice Lee-Thomas, Nursery Manager at Young Oaks Day Nursery responded to this review on 24 Jul 2017:

Dear Kathryn, thank you so much for your review. The staff and I work very hard to ensure that all children and parents are happy here at Young Oaks Day Nursery. We are very open to any feedback that you might have. Thanks again.

I cannot recommend this nursery enough! All the staff have been fantastic since my daughter started. They show genuine care and compassion towards the children in their care.

My daughter has come on so much since her time here. She is a much more confident little girl who loves to talk to me about the learning that they have done there. Staff are very informative at feedback and we love looking at the Tapestry app to see what our daughter has been doing in nursery.

Thank you!

I am so pleased with Daybreak Nurseries. My son has loved his time there and I have seen a big difference in his confidence and behaviour. He will soon be moving to their pre school, and our next little one will hopefully be going to Daybreak as well in due course!

Fantastic nursery, my son loves it. The staff are brilliant and give regular updates on how your child is developing. He has gone from a clingy shy boy to a confident little toddler. Would definitely recommend this nursery.

We had our son in this nursery since 6 months old until 2.5 years old. We stopped as we were leaving the country due to our jobs, otherwise we would have continued and put our daughter there too.

I cannot rate the staff highly enough. Always attentive, smiling and hard working. Very kind to children and time to debrief parents too.

The management team are quick to reply to emails and efficient to sort out any problems or requests.

Our son loved going to nursery where they have a multitude of activities that are related to development aims, but also allow the children to play by themselves inside and outside. We also liked that they try and get the children outside every day and minimise use of electronics devices.

Only criticism would be lack of parking!

Thank you to all the staff at Child First Bicester. You have been wonderful and do such an amazing job. I wish there was more governmental financial aid to support nurseries and pay you all more because you deserve it.

My daughter has absolutely loved being at Rainbow. She first joined at 13 months & is leaving to head to infant school at 4yrs old. My daughter has learnt so much whilst being at nursery & I can't thank her key carers enough for all their time, love & support they have shown our daughter. Her last day is going to be a very sad day leaving everyone. Thankyou!

My daughter has started at Puddle Ducks in January '17 when she was 2 and we cannot be happier for the choice we have made.
Since joining the nursery my daughter has flourished in all aspects of her development, including the social, intellectual, physical aspects and in her communication skills. This is the result of the warm and happy learning environment, with set routines that combine multiple stimulating activities throughout the day with healthy food and a nap.
The staff make the difference: they are caring, affectionate, proactive and professional. Every child has a key person who closely follows them and my daughter loves hers! The nursery manager takes extremely good care of the nursery, is very approachable and has always provided concrete follow-up actions to address any request.
Puddle Ducks offers outstanding standards of care and education and I wholeheartedly recommend it to all parents looking for a safe and happy place where their children can thrive while having fun!

My daughter has attended since she was 8 months old, the initial appeal was the separate baby room in the baby unit. Everything's provided so you don't have to worry about food, nappies etc. Most nurseries seem to mix under 2's with the babies. I have not regretted my decision, the team are absolutely brilliant and my daughter loves every minute of being at Nursery, she prefers it to home. Building great relationships with her key worker.
The children are really at the centre of everything the nursery does, their physical and emotional well-being are paramount and they also benefit from fabulous educational development too, especially in the 2-5's Unit. The outside areas are superb and come rain or shine the children normally get a good dose of fresh air every day.
Events throughout the year allow parents/grandparents can get involved in nursery life.
My daughter is now more than prepared for starting school and we are both going to miss the nursery, I can't recommend it enough.
