Review submitted from a Website Submission by Emma (Mother of Child) on Saturday 25 June 2016. Relates to June 2016.
I have used this nursery for my daughter since she was 3 until she moved on to reception and now my son since he was 1 year old (now 22 months). Both children enjoy going to the nursery, are comfortable there and love the staff. My daughter commented regularly that it is like a family. The manager is fantastic and approachable and the staff are very caring. It is a very friendly atmosphere.
Every day there are a variety of exciting toys set out for the children to play with. Carers help children, catering to their individuality and personal needs. My daughter was desperate to learn to read. Her key worker took the time to sit and teach her, which really prepared her for her first year at school.
I would only mark the outdoor area as 'Good' as it is a small area with no grass. However, they have made the best of the space they have and children go outside regularly.
Overall I am very happy with this nursery and its staff.
