Both my 4-year-old son and 11-month-old daughter attend this nursery and I couldn't praise the staff enough. From the key nursery staff through to the management; all team members treat the children with fantastic care. The activities and learning opportunities provided on a daily basis allow the children to develop in all areas. In addition, the meals and snacks on offer ensure a well-balanced diet and encourage healthy relationships with food.

Our twin sons have attended the setting since they were 1 (they are now almost 4) and we have been delighted with the level of care given by the staff. At each transition the boys have been given time to settle into the new room and get used to their new key worker. The boys thoroughly enjoy their time at nursery, particular highlights are the Little Kickers football sessions, exploring for bugs in the garden and getting messy with glue and paint! The crèche sessions offered by the nursery have been really useful.

I have a daughter who has been at Kid ease since January 2015. She really looks forward to going each day. They do many fun and interesting things with the children, and make the children feel at ease. Each child is allocated a key person who looks after and records their progress. The key persons are all very friendly and approachable to both children and parents.
