We loved the atmosphere at Nelly's from our first visit, there is a homely feel and the staff show genuine concern, care and love for the children. They were particularly good at settling in, and there was always a key person available in the mornings to administer cuddles and ensure our toddler felt safe and secure when we left. We couldn't ask for more.

My older two children attended another branch of Nelly's Nursery a few years ago, and now my youngest is at Turney Road. As with my older two, my husband and I have been extremely pleased with how she has settled in and above all the caring and positive atmosphere created by the staff, who really seem dedicated to making sure the children are happy, stimulated and well cared for. The facilities at the nursery are great - a charming little garden with lots of outdoor toys, and well thought out and equipped indoor play and activity areas, but with a homely feel. Our daughter loves her time at Nelly's and has become very fond of the carers and other children. I would certainly recommend it.

Both my children attend/have attended Nelly's Turney Road. The staff and management team there provide a nurturing, positive and safe environment for children to learn, tailoring activities to meet the needs of individual children. There is an overwhelming atmosphere of care and commitment amongst the staff. Staff turnover is very low which is a huge positive for me. Both my children are/were extremely happy there due to the high standards maintained by this wonderful staff team.

Both my boys attend Nelly's Turney Road and I could not be happier with the lovely caring staff and environment. The key reason I decided upon the Nursery was the 'homely' feeling, fun outside space, friendly and engaged nature of the management staff and the superb team who have and do look after my sons. In the baby room there is always a lot of affection and cuddles and both my boys built strong bonds with all the team in the room. It is such a comforting feeling leaving my son at Nelly's knowing they will have a fun time, do lots of activities and they really enjoy it.

Nelly’s is an excellent nursery. Our daughter has been going there since she was two and she flourished there. The level of care is outstanding – from what she eats, the activities she does and the interaction with parents, there is very little we would change. Her progress is tracked regularly and they work well with parents to improve areas requiring attention. They encourage children to be independent, thoughtful and assertive. The only thing we would suggest changing is the illness policy. Every spike in temperature requires the child to go home, even if it is a one off.

Our daughter has been at Nelly's since she was 7 months old. We are really happy with the culture and home from home environment they provide. The staff are terrific and the low turnover means that they are all brilliant at knowing her comforts and likes and dislikes. There is a wide range of activities which she loves including whippersnappers and PE. She also surprised us the other night by counting in French.

The nursery provided a safe, happy environment for my son from 5 months of age. They were superb at keeping him entertained and in a good routine. My son made some great friendships at the nursery and the staff were incredibly professional at all times. I always received a full hand over at the end of the day with details on the activities that he carried out on the day and the amount of food he had eaten. If he was ever upset they spent time comforting him. All the staff really care about the children. It's an amazing company.

Our son has enjoyed every day of his 3 years at Nelly's Nursery. The staff have been like family for these most important years. They have given him all the support that he needs to enable him to become the confident little boy he is. He has done PE activities, reading and all the motor skills, social and emotional development as well as cognitive development. There really is not anymore we could have wanted.

My oldest son was at Nelly's from 2012 - 2015, and my youngest is still there. We love everything about the nursery. The staff genuinely care about the kids and take excellent care of them. The development reviews are well structured and they strike the right balance between encouragement and development. I am dreading our last day - there will be tears!
