My daughter has been cared for by the room leader of Starters 1. The care she has received has been fantastic. My daughter's mother and I separated and the room leader has made sure I am kept informed of my daughter's development and made myself and my girlfriend very welcome at pick up time. My daughter's development has massively improved thanks to her room leader.

The girls who work here are brilliant with children. They are all very different and work in different ways with each child. My little boy has been here since 9 months old and sees it like a second home and is very comfortable and safe here. He likes the climbing area the best. One of the best things for me is this nursery does before and after school care and holiday clubs as there are few in the area and they are really flexible with times.

As soon as my child started he was unsure of nursery but when he settled, he has loved going. Since then, my child has come on leaps and bounds and has learnt to do and say different things. He loves going and playing and there is lots for him to do and the staff are very welcoming.

Staff are always friendly and polite. Room is always clean and as tidy as a nursery room can be! Staff good with my child, especially as he is quite tearful at drop off.
Communication could be improved slightly between home and staff regarding events going on and would be nice if they still had a communication book in the 2nd room.

My child has been very happy here, recently several key staff have left which has been unsettling. The staff looking after him are great and the manager is always available if I have any questions or concerns. My child loves being outside playing with the good range of toys and equipment, and the open day was great to watch how my child really likes being here.

We trust all the staff and he always tells us of the fun he has, it has also made him be so confident and a happy boy.

I would recommend it wholeheartedly.

I've used Kindercare for both of my children, and have always been really happy with them. My children have really enjoyed their time here and it gives me peace of mind to know that I'm leaving them somewhere I trust and know I can talk to any of the staff if I ever had an issue. I feel the level of care my children have had has always been very high and they are often trying to improve services. They've also been as flexible as possible when I have needed to change times and days of care. I view it as a lovely, friendly and relaxed place.

My child really enjoys coming to the nursery, I feel very happy and relaxed to leave her, I think the nursery runs excellently, I am a very happy parent :)
The staff and management are all very friendly, I have no concerns or worries but if I did I would feel comfortable to talk to the manager knowing 100% that the problem would be solved.

My son is extremely happy at this nursery, he has come on wonderfully since starting! I cannot recommend this setting enough. My son has allergies and is very well cared for with his food and safety regarding these.

All staff members are extremely friendly and helpful. They do so much for the children and I couldn't ask for kinder more attentive people to look after. Air con still not working fully and outside has no awning so outside play limited.
