Fitzsimmons Place Nursery is an excellent nursery. It is conveniently located in central Guildford and provides a safe and caring environment for babies through to pre-school. Not only do they look after all the active kids, but they find the time to rotate and develop their staff. This shows with the excellent attitude of the staff and with the small toddlers/ babies in their care.

I am so pleased with how well my daughter has settled at nursery. She absolutely loves going every day and has already built up great relationships with the staff and other children. Everyone at the nursery is incredibly friendly and approachable and any worries we have had have been quickly put to rest. My daughter has already learnt so much and enjoys all the activities and messy play. The fantastic outside space is a real bonus and being able to help look after the guinea pigs has been a massive hit. I can happily go to work knowing that my daughter is well cared for whilst enjoying her day in such a fun and stimulating environment.

The only place I feel 100% comfortable leaving my daughter. The level of the staff’s knowledge is beyond my expectations. Well done on caring for individual needs and creating a fun environment. The staff are very kind and helpful everything about this nursery is fantastic. My child loves everyone at the nursery. I feel confident here with the way they treat each child and their parents, they’re like a family. My child's development is very distinctive and clear to the point of my telling people about the nursery. Since my daughter started she has come on in leaps and bounds; from a little girl that cried before I said goodbye, she has turned into a confident little girl that cannot wait to go and play. I am so impressed with the things she shows me she has learnt.

I collect my niece once a week from nursery and it is always a pleasure. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful; nothing is ever too much trouble. When I go to collect my niece it is always so lovely to see her playing with new toys and friends. The outdoor facilities are wonderful and it is clear for all to see that the Children are having a fun whilst learning new skills and making friends. Always a pleasure to visit and I look forward to my next weekly visit.

Fitzsimmons is a wonderful nursery at which my daughter has thrived. She joined two years ago and although we moved further away we have kept her at the nursery because she loves it so much and because we are so happy with the care she receives there. The whole team are clearly very experienced, friendly and caring and our daughter has developed enormously under their expert care. The nursery is set in a fantastic building with an enormous amount of space. The children are outside every day and there is even a forest school. The food is all freshly prepared on site and there are boards showing what they will eat each day as well as tonnes of other useful information. There is online access for parents which is very handy and at the end of each day there is a comprehensive hand over from the key person who has been looking after her. All in all we could not be happier and would recommend a visit even if you have your heart set on another nursery. The staff, environment and space at this nursery sets it way ahead of others in the area. I have marked them as excellent in every area because they genuinely are.

A wonderful nursery; huge house with extensive grounds that the children play in all year round - lots of rosy cheeks and happily tired children!

Attentive, loving staff that go the extra mile to understand children and parents' needs; on-site chef and even a resident dog, guinea pigs and tortoise.

Centrally located in Guildford close to mainline station and ideal location for commuters.
