Both of my children have used Apple Blossom Day Nursery for the past 5 years. I send them because I think the staff are amazing. They value my children as unique individuals and share their enthusiasm for things they enjoy. My children have always come home from nursery happy and excited about the things they have done that day. The staff always inform me about what they've eaten, who they've played with, what they have been learning and their behaviour. I would strongly recommend this nursery over every other one.

My daughter has been attending Apple Blossom nursery since she was seven months old and really enjoys going. She will be starting school in September and after visiting the school I have realised how easy this transition will be for her due to the work and set up of the nursery.
She always comes home with something new she has learned whether it be Makaton signs, a new song or further reading and writing skills.
The staff are all very friendly and I know my daughter looks forward to seeing these each day as much as she does her friends.
My son will be starting Apple Blossom in September and I know that he is in safe hands and will be getting the best start to his educational journey.

My son has attended Apple Blossom full time from being 9 months old and has never been happier. He receives excellent care from all the staff. I find all the girls to be friendly, approachable and professional. The nursery environment is stimulating for him and he loves the big garden and outdoor sandpit. As a parent, its great to know that I can go to work knowing my son is safe and well looked after at Apple Blossom while he's also having a great time. Thanks Apple Blossom!
