Reviewer Connection to Treetops Castle Garden (Duffield)

  • Mother of Child

I've been really impressed with the care and learning experience provided by The Clever Clogs pre-school room, that my daughter attends three days a week! The staff here have so many creative ideas that relate to the children's interests I.e fairy tale stories, space etc and also help the children to understand the world around them in fun ways. Recently they made Chinese masks, fried Chinese food and are making a dragon costume and dance to mark the Chinese New Year. This is just one example of the numerous enthusiastic ideas that the children here benefit from and I am very grateful.

My daughter has recently left here to start school and she was so well prepared by the nursery, as were we with a school readiness evening, that she has made the transition seamlessly. My son remains here and loves it. The staff are so friendly and caring.

The children are always having fun whenever I drop off or pick up. The variety of activities is great and all with underlying developmental support. The food offering really suits my son and he always eats really well. It's lovely to be able to drop him off guilt free knowing he is genuinely going to be having a great day.

My daughter really enjoys going to the nursery and has developed so much since joining in April 2016. The staff are friendly and caring and I feel my daughter is well looked after. She is able to participate in a variety of activities - outdoor play, messy play, crafts, singing and stories. I am told that she always eats well and enjoys the food served. I feel confident ti leave her there and that she is happy and has lots of fun; I couldn't ask for more.

Lovely friendly nursery, not too big, all the staff are so personable to the children and my little girl enjoys a great choice of healthy nutritious food !
There is always a range of activities and themes the children work on and dress up days !
Interaction with older and younger children is also great as it teaches the children how to socialise with different age groups.
My daughter also enjoys the dance lessons they have recently been having.
Thank you, Castle Garden !!

The nursery is a great size, being small enough that there aren't lots of children and all the staff know all of them, but it's supported by a national group so generally has good facilities and investment. The manager is good, and the baby room especially is great - the staff were amazing with my little boy and it's open plan so moving to the next room up wasn't too scary! The food is good and I like the daily updates we get, but most importantly my son is very happy there.

The nursery is appropriately staffed and are very accommodating to extra days of care - if needed - maybe due to small numbers of children attending on certain days.
Cleanliness appears to be paramount which is good to see, although my child has shared and received many infections/viruses with all staff and childcare since starting in August 2015.

The cook provides vegan food for my child which is brilliant for his dietary needs and social inclusion, however I feel the food could be more varied to include tofu, hummus, grains like couscous etc.- rather than mainly 'cheese' prepared dishes to support his variety of food intake.
Reporting on illnesses that pass around the nursery would be helpful to parents, as I suspect fear of disclosure a present doesn't seem to be necessity by parent and staff.

Very caring staff. Thoughtful and caring towards the children, give good feedback at the end of the day. Flexible in approach. Have formed a strong bond with my child. Child is happy and excited to go to nursery. Provide a positive learning environment - can see child's progress and development. Provide lots of opportunities for outdoor play and a variety of play activities. Were very helpful when it came to potty training.
