I am very pleased with the support and dedication of the staff at First Steps. In my opinion, the most important aspect relating to a childcare provider is that the children feel safe. My boys do, and I am very grateful.

The manager and her team have been brilliant, looking after my daughter. It started in the baby room when she was 18months old and then toddler room where it continued in a lovely friendly manner.
We feel our daughter has come on load and is well equipped to start nursery in September.
Thanks to the staff in the preschool room.
Thank you all so much for everything.

Truly excellent nursery with first class facilities (indoor and outside) and most importantly an enthusiastic, warm, highly trained team, who adore the children.

This nursery should form a best practice model for others. My daughter is happy, stimulated, well-fed and nurtured. What more could I ask for?

The owners continue to significantly invest in training, toys, equipment and technology. I wholeheartedly recommend this nursery and feel very privileged that my daughter attends.

Could not recommend this nursery highly enough.
The amazing staff have been brilliant with my son.
He has loved every minute.
The most positive start a child can get, from the beginning of his nursery education to the very end. The team of teachers are nurturing and treat every child with respect and individuality, dependant on the child's personality. I urge any parent to just see the nursery and how the staff work, to agree that it is a great place for any child to learn through play.

My son attended this nursery from six months old where he went through all of the rooms. The set up is well organised and the staff friendly and professional. My son has always had a smile on his face when being picked up and has enjoyed the use of all the resources they have available which has included the outdoor garden space.
We have never had any worries leaving our son. The nursery is very well kept, clean and the food menu is very good. My son has enjoyed his time here.

My daughter loves Kids & Co Nursery and so do we. The staff are amazing and many have been there for a long time so they know all the children well. Our daughter gets wonderful personal care and the children are encouraged to play well together as friends across the age groups. Kids & Co encourages a friendly and family orientated atmosphere, and many of the parents know each other as a result. I am delighted at the daily activities they do, from their wonderful forest school to baking, to drama and football and learning how to make sandwiches. The children are happy, stimulated and very well cared for. I highly recommend Kids & Co.

Thank you so much Zahra for your lovely review and helping other parents know your experience with us.

My two children (3 and 1) have been going to Birch Grove since April and both absolutely love being there. I knew as soon as I walked into the nursery for a visit, this was the one that my children would be going to. They have both come on in leaps and bounds within the few months of being here. The nursery staff are very welcoming to parents/carers but the love and care they have for the children is amazing. Both of their key workers are great and are always full of information at the end of each day. I love speaking with them and hearing about what they have both been up to throughout the day. I feel very confident in leaving my children with the amazing staff and I know if they have any concerns they will call me straight away. Nothing is ever too much for the staff and they are always happy to help. I would definitely recommend the nursery to anybody looking.

Thank you for your feed back, good luck in big school.

Our son attended Ladybird Nursery from the age of two until the start of school. Before choosing a nursery, we scoped out several and found Ladybird the best by far. We immediately warmed to both the staff and the setting, and our son settled in easily. Throughout our son's time there, we have found everyone to be open and approachable. We've received regular, helpful reports on our son's progress. The management are easy to deal with - everything is very well run. The food is great - freshly prepared on site. (I think the kids eat better than I do! There are lots of activities for the kids and opportunities for parents to get involved. The staff provide a kind, friendly, caring environment and our son has blossomed into a confident, articulate little boy more than ready for school. We've all made lots of friends there and will be sad to leave. We highly recommend the nursery, and the Christmas play - Yep, it's a cracker!!!

Love, love, love, this nursery, my little boy goes in with a smile and doesn't want to leave when I get him. It's such a relaxed environment which the children feed off, so when you walk in you feel at ease that your child is being well looked after. The owner and manager are so approachable and do such an amazing job.

Amazing nursery with amazing staff and owners (no I'm not related to them!).

My son has been coming to this nursery over a year now, we moved him from a different nursery and I'm so glad we did. My son is always coming home exhausted and dirty which in my opinion means he has had a great day.

Being able to play outside all day every day in any weather, has been my son's favourite bit and the walk to the woods is an amazing experience for them, rather than being stuck inside all day.

My son is starting school in September and he is very prepared for starting even though he has just turned 4, all thanks to this amazing nursery. I will be sad to see him leave next month as the nursery is such an amazing experience for them.

Our son started Field House in September 2016. He found it hard to settle initially and was always upset in the mornings; however the staff in the baby room have been caring, friendly, and encouraging, and he now loves it. They always seem to know the children well as individuals and provide activities which they know will interest them.

One of the reasons we chose this nursery was the big outside space they have, as our son loves being outdoors. They take them outside, rain or shine, and our son has great fun with the tractors, mud kitchen and playing football.

Our son has really developed his skills and confidence since starting and we feel happy and confident leaving him in their care.

Since my son who has special needs has attended Little Angels, I feel he has been given the same opportunities as all the other children to which he deserves, he has progressed so much more than I could ever have imagined and feel he wouldn't of without all of the care and support given at Little Angels. Highly recommended.

You know it's a good nursery when you go to pick your child and they are curled up on the sofa with two members of staff reading a book. The staff are like my sons 2nd family, he is just so settled with them all, which is something I have not seen when sending my eldest to nursery. The outdoor area is amazing, my son loves that he can play outside all day long no matter the weather.

My daughter has attended nursery since March 2016, and she really enjoys it.
Both myself and my partner are very pleased with the care and education that our daughter and we receive from the nursery. We feel that it has definitely brought on our daughters confidence and social skills. All the staff are friendly and helpful and always make you feel relaxed. I struggled at first to leave my daughter as she's my first child, but all the staff were so reassuring and supportive, this made me feel a lot better and comfortable to ask any questions. It's a very professional, educational, yet fun and caring nursery.

My eldest daughter first attended Apple Tree when she was 12 weeks old. Since then she has grown into a confident and adventurous 4-year-old and I know that this is because of the great care she received at the nursery. My youngest daughter (2 years old) currently attends Apple Tree and since joining, her development has improved significantly. She always seemed to struggle with her speech and communication, where as now she is a very happy and extremely chatty little girl. Apple Tree Nursery has done wonders for my two girls and I cannot recommend it enough.

My daughter has attended Little Lions for over a year now. The staff in the baby room were brilliant, always welcoming and caring and she loved going in. She has now moved to the Toddler room upstairs, the staff all made sure the move was smooth and as stress-free as possible which, it was. She loves going in and gets excited about going to nursery. All the girls are friendly and welcoming. They have lots of different play areas, role play, messy play and construction just to name a few. My daughter has come on leaps and bounds since going to Little lions and I would highly recommend it to anyone!

My baby started here at 9 months old and settled in immediately. The staff are friendly and caring and my baby seems to always enjoy herself! As a first time mummy, I was worried about leaving my baby with people she didn't know but I needn't have, as they take great care of her! Lovely happy place!
