I would like to say a big thank you to the whole team of (TORNS) for looking after my daughter and making her shine and grow into an independent smart girl. She loved her teachers and always wanted to come to nursery in the morning very happily which used to make our day. We trusted the staff and they did a brilliant job for which we cannot thank them enough. Even office staff were very helpful as they accommodated her whenever we needed her to attend extra sessions. She made good friends and is going to miss them a lot, not forgetting kitchen staff for cooking and providing the children with yummy food which she also loved. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. God bless you all for giving the children enormous love and hugs.

The nursery is managed very professionally by friendly staff. It is situated in a safe area away from the busy roads. My son tells me about new fun activities that he has been learning about every time he has attended. They help with all my son's needs, for example, education, health and self-care. It is a nice clean, bright environment for all.

Thanks for making my daughter's days in nursery wonderful. Very good nursery in my opinion and would highly recommend it. The care, love, affection, motivation and moral ethics my daughter has received and the changes I have seen in her since she has joined the nursery is outstanding and I thank them for all that. It's like a big family in which the teachers knows all the names of each single child. My daughter is going to miss their warm cuddles every morning....

I would highly recommend this nursery, I found it extremely welcoming, smiling faces. You all actually made me feel special, you took time out to speak to me especially me as a grandmother. My granddaughter loves coming to you as she must be loved, she loves people to hug her and make her feel special and you all were extremely loving towards her. I will miss you all too, but we know my granddaughter will too and she will remember you all dearly. Thank you all very much and keep up the good work. I will highly recommend you thoroughly.

I am so much satisfied with TORNS. My son enjoys the whole time he spends in the nursery. Have seen so many changes in him. He is very attached to the teachers and staff. Staff is very friendly and helpful. All of them have put a great effort to make my son who he is today and to help him adjust in the nursery and in the main stream school. I am so thankful to all the staff for taking care of him and making him a good boy today and for the future. You all will be sadly missed. I strongly recommend TORNS to my family.

Our initial attraction to this nursery was the excellent cleanliness of the environment upon our first visit in 2013, and we have proved it wasn't a one off. We are very impressed with the management to the front-line staff because they are approachable and we have developed a good rapport. We trust the nursery hence we have entrusted three children in their care in the last three years. We are exceptionally happy with the care they offer to our children and the regular updates we receive about their development. The excellent learning environment can be seen in our kids development and interpersonal skills.

Excellent staff and nursery. My son thoroughly enjoyed his time at nursery despite being reluctant before due to language barriers. The teachers were able to deal with his difficulties really well and I am extremely satisfied with his academic performance and improvement in speaking skills. The nursery itself was very well safe guarded for children and I am happy with the food that was provided all being healthy. Overall an excellent nursery for children under five.

Torns is an excellent nursery which provides a high level of care and learning. The friendly and experienced staff made everything from settling into the day to day activities all fun and exciting. Our daughter spent two and a half years at Torns and felt totally at ease with the nursery environment. She has become a confident little girl and mixes well with other children. A varied and rotating food menu has encouraged our daughter to try new foods which has made her a less fussy eater. The overall standard is excellent and I would highly recommend this nursery. We are now getting ready to enrol our second daughter.

Fantastic nursery!!
Being first time parents; my partner and I naturally wanted to ensure we found the best placement for our daughter.
We, and most importantly, our daughter absolutely love the nursery!! Our daughter joined at 9 months old and is now a very bubbly confident chatty inquisitive 21 month old.
The staff are fantastic. I also love the fact the nursery has a large enclosed garden so the children enjoy outdoor play and aren't cooped up inside all day.
A diary of food eaten, activities and naps is completed daily and parents are able to read these as each child has their own pigeon hole. All in all I would recommend The Old Rectory Nursery School 100%.
