I have dropped off and picked up both of my granddaughters from this nursery over the last few years. The staff are always very friendly and the nursery has a lovely atmosphere where all the children who attend look very happy. It's particularly nice to see my eldest granddaughter keen to go back to the nursery and drop off her sister, the staff there all know and remember her. It's also lovely to have witnessed both girls happy and looking forward to going there. Keep up the good work.

Kaye Knox, Child Care Manager at Caerleon Child Care Cardiff responded to this review on 20 Feb 2017:

Thank you so much for your lovely review Sue and thank you for letting us look after your 2 lovely Grandchildren.

Me and my wife absolutely love the environment and the way that my child is looked after at Blossoms Day Nursery! My child actually eats the food that is made here! (considering she doesn't eat much at home). Me and my wife are also very happy with the staff, knowing that my child is well looked after and cared for.

The staff in the toddler room have been so supportive whilst my daughter adjusts to doing a full day. Nothing is too much trouble and they really make her feel confident and secure in her surroundings. Thanks and keep up the excellent work.

As soon as we visited Little Acorns Private Day Nursery me and my husband felt extremely welcomed and comforted. Our 15month old loves going to nursery and have come on so much since starting. The improvements in her social skills, speech, communication and motor abilities are amazing. The staff are really friendly and know your child inside out- they clearly spend a lot of time getting to know them and their individual needs. We made the right decision choosing Little Acorns Private Day Nursery.

Blossoms is a fantastic nursery! The staff and management are very welcoming and friendly, they have made me and my child feel very welcome and are supportive of my situation as a single mother. The food and facilities are second to none and I love the parent portal it is very useful as I get to see and read about my child's day every session. Thank you Blossoms!

My son loves this nursery as do we. The staff are great, friendly and more importantly great with the kids. The nursery is large, clean and has all the toys, books and fun things a child needs and wants. My son has progressed so much in the short time he has been there. Would highly recommend.

My Son has been at Mama Bears since August 2015, so has used both the Nursery and Preschool. He is really happy there and the staff have really helped to bring him out of his shell. He has made lots of friends and he eats well (much better than at home). The staff are all very friendly and helpful and they plan good activities to help develop their skills and work on any areas that need improvement. The outside space is great given the limitations. It would be nice if the children could go on some outings/trips away from the preschool more frequently.

Our youngest granddaughter (now 14) and our great-granddaughter (17 months) have gained huge benefits from attending TOPS Day Nursery at Wareham. Our granddaughter attended from age 1 to starting school and the great-granddaughter has been attending for the past year. The facilities are superb and the staff helpful and caring. The children have the opportunity to try out tastes and experiences which they may not get at home. There are lots of ‘new’ things since our great-granddaughter attended, such as teeth cleaning, potty-training and the regular updates on progress via eyLog. We can’t recommend highly enough the excellent start to their early years that TOPS provides for pre-school children.

I am extremely happy with the care my child receives when he is there. Many thanks.

I wanted a welcoming, caring, child development focused environment for my children. I get all that and more from Twts Tywi. Highly recommended. My daughter started there with no welsh and is now fluent, she is ranked highly in terms of readiness for school because of the work done with her. My baby boy is now 10 months and I was so comfortable to leave him at Twts Tywi when I go to work.

Happitots is an amazing nursery and we were very pleased with all of the staff who work there. My daughter spent almost 2 years there where she made lots of friends and enjoyed every minute. The communication between nursery and parents is fantastic and we received monthly newsletters explaining what the nursery was focusing on each month. I would recommend Happitots to all of my friends and family

The overall standard of the nursery is excellent. My child has come on leaps and bounds and she is always talking about certain numbers of staff saying "She is funny! etc. The care they provide is excellent. The management is also excellent and you are always kept informed on what's happening.
I would say the manager is excellent and you can see that all the staff work hard as a team. As for safeguarding, that is excellent too as you have to be buzzed in and there is a camera and you have to be let in again by a member of staff. All in all, I would give the nursery 10/10 as they are amazing and if I had any more children I would definitely send them to Cherubs.

My little boy is very settled in the nursery. He looks forward to going and doesn't want to leave at the end of the day.
The staff treat him like I would and I am very happy to leave him there whilst I work.
If I have any questions, staff respond very well and I get a full update on what he has done each day.
The staff actively take an interest in all our lives not just my little boy.
They do a variety of activities each day and all are encouraged to participate. My little one has come on leaps and bounds and is showing new skills all the time.

Overall, very very pleased and will and have recommended to others.

Two of my daughters attended Farthing wood. They were very happy going there and enjoyed the time they spent there. I found the staff very friendly, attentive, knowledgeable and kind. My daughters spent time doing many fun activities, a lot of these were in preparation for EYFS at school but never beyond what the child could do. I would recommend this nursery to everyone.

My little boy (now 3) has been at Stepping Stones since he was 9 months old and absolutely loves it. There is such a happy welcoming feel to the nursery. My son can't wait to see his friends each morning and it makes it so much easier to go to work each day knowing he is being well cared for by staff, that obviously love their jobs and all the children in their care.
The nursery is always clean and warm, the food always smells AMAZING and each morning we are greeted by a happy smiley member of staff.
The staff are fantastic, I can't thank them enough for all their care and support over the years.
We are proud to part of the Stepping Stones family!

Our son has been attending Paper Moon Forest Town for just under 2 years now and has come on loads since starting there. He loves the staff and they make him feel welcome and loved. He had his own key worker to help him along with his speech and he also has dietary issues and they are brilliant with that too.

Farthing wood is a very safe and nice place for little children. Our child loves going to the place and has happily adjusted to the place, staff and her friends in the nursery. The facilities are very good and staff members are caring, communicate well and are good at expressing genuine concerns if any.

All of the staff are professional and caring throughout. Our little girl started just after her 1st birthday and has loved every minute.
It has made the transition back to full-time work a breeze, as I know with all the activities and ideas the team have planned, I really feel she benefits from every day.
The food is cooked fresh in house, and even in the baby nest, children sit around the table together (instead of the row of high chairs in some nurseries) which really adds to her social skills further, and encourages her to try foods she may not eat for me. Dietary or medical requirements are all catered for with no worries, these wouldn't be missed nor are they an inconvenience to the team.
I would highly recommend Poppies to any parent looking for child care.
