My little boy has been attending this nursery since he was 10 months old and I honestly couldn't say there's any other nursery in Dundee I would rather have him in.
He loves going to nursery, every day is an adventure. The nursery has a huge garden, every age group has their own individual play areas. There's lots of indoor space too. The staff regularly provide fun, stimulating and age appropriate activities.
The children are encouraged to be independent and are listened to, which I think does lots for their self-confidence.
The menu is very varied and often my son will try and enjoy foods he wouldn't try at home.
The staff are lovely. They are all friendly and informative. The manager and her team do a great job they are very helpful and approachable for any questions or queries.
I can see the safe and happy environment which is created for the children and I'm happy to know that when I leave my son there in the morning, he is going to have a fun filled day.

The staff and management at Oranges and Lemons Technology Park are second to none. Two of three of my children have attended here and my third is due to start. I have seen first hand the effort and care that they put into each child. My personal experience is that this has had an immeasurable positive impact on my children, in terms of developing their confidence as well as their emotional, social and academic development. The outside space (particularly the mud patch!) is a big hit with my children. The dirty baths and clothes are evidence of the fun my children have had outside. I go to work safe in the knowledge that they are cared for, learning new skills and having fun at the same time. Thanks guys for all of your hard work!

My child has been attending O&L (Oranges and Lemons) in Technology Park for 4 years. I felt very happy for the choice. The nursery is an exceptional facility, with a big building benefiting from various room themes and an amazing garden, including their own piece of forest (called mud patch). A day in the nursery is well organised, children are busy learning new skills. Staff are well motivated and committed, helping children to achieve their milestones and developing their skills. Great manager, exceptional at leading the team. Thanks for looking after us for all these years. We will miss you!

My daughter is currently in the 2-3 room and absolutely loves it! She is always happy to go to nursery in the mornings and has so much to tell me when we get home about the staff, her friends and what she has been doing each day, She even talks about them over the weekend and asks when it is time to see them! Staff are always happy, feedback welcoming, polite and give feedback about my daughters day. I do and would continue to highly recommend this nursery!

My son is 16 months old and has been at this nursery since he was 7 months old. Can't fault anything about the nursery. The staff are brilliant and talk you through everything about your child's day from what they have done to what they have eaten and what times their nappy has been changed! My son is really settled and I feel he's more advanced from being at this nursery. Also, the food variety for the children is really good. :-)

Both our sons have been at Oranges and Lemons from an early age and we could not imagine a better nursery education for them. The staff are caring, nurturing and good educators. The building is well set up with fantastic outdoor space which our boys can't get enough of. Their access to learning resources, including technology, is evident even in the nursery's use of an online learning portal. Our eldest attends school in August and we feel the nursery has been there every step of the way in support of him growing into a confident, independent little boy set to take on his next adventure It's easy to recommend this nursery, it has the perfect balance of activity, challenge and experiences to match the needs of every child. All this is brought together with a fantastic management team, who ensure the staff are best placed to deliver a great education and take the time to know and care for every child and parent.

We have had our 3 girls at the nursery for many years (2 are at school now) and they have all loved it there. Plenty of space, friendly staff. They are always doing fun activities. The outside space is fantastic, and they have a great time playing in the woods "mud patch" in the summer. We've been recommending the nursery to friends for years and several are there now and very happy with it.

Both of my girls go to this nursery since they were several months old. And they are now 4 and 2 years. They both receive great care at the nursery. There's always plenty of variety of activities on going for the kids. They've learnt a lot from the nursery. More importantly, they have fun. They love to go to the nursery. My 4 years-old even wants to go on the weekend!! As a family far away from our original country and with not much support from our bigger family, we always received help and support from the staffs at the nursery. They really are like family to us. I would highly recommend this nursery to everyone.

My 2 children have attended this nursery at different times. The facilities are excellent. We chose this nursery due to the huge outdoor area they have, especially the mud patch. My daughter is quite shy but she was so welcomed at this nursery and encouraged to take part in projects. My son has a very close bond with the teachers and talks about them at home. I'm always very impressed when I pick him up from nursery and the teachers can tell me exactly how much he ate that day and what he enjoyed and didn't.
Considering they have a lot of children to look after they still seem to know everything that's gone on with each child that day. The food they are served for snacks and lunch always sounds amazing and are so healthy. The nursery has a very friendly and almost family-like atmosphere. Thank you so much to everyone at Oranges and Lemons Tech Park for taking such good care of my babies. I would, and very often do, recommend you to anyone.

Our son has been at Tech Park since he was nine months old. He is now five and ready for school. Throughout his time at Tech Park, we have seen him come on leaps and bounds. All of the staff have always been consistent, positive, kind and attentive. The food is excellent; tasty, balanced and nutritious. At every age and stage there have been a huge variety of activites and opportunities for our son to learn. He really enjoys painting in the art room, finding out how things work in the construction room, exploring the garden and learning about growing food and flowers, playing in the den and mud patch and being a real wee boy.
Any issues about behaviour have been dealt with promptly and fairly, he clearly has a good relationship with all the staff. We deferred his school placement for a year, with the support of the staff. They follow the curriculum for excellence to prepare him for school and he is loving learning. The nursery have regular parents' evenings and we have always felt inolved.

The nursery is fantastic - purpose built, with the most amazing outdoor space. The staff are exceptional and genuinely caring and engaged with the children they look after. Both of my children have attended this nursery and I don't think there is anything I would change about their experience there. The management team are wonderful - you are always greeted with a cheery hello - and they always make time to chat if you have anything you need to discuss. What I also like is that the staff are always coming up with new ideas of things to do with the children, from building a life size Viking ship out of cardboard, to building a mud kitchen in the garden. Their enthusiasm for what must be a very busy and exhausting job never ceases to amazes me! Thank you to all O&L staff!

By far the most outstanding nursery in Dundee. My son attended tech park for 4 yrs and I could not praise the staff enough. They gave me peace of mind leaving my young baby in there care. Taking him throughout many stages of his young life. He loved the nursery food and as A fussy eater at home this was great, in fact he still says the nursery food is better than school dinners. The outdoor area was fantastic he had so many fun days outdoors in the mud patch. He learnt so much and had so many amazing experiences in his time there and after a year away still meets with nursery friends and talks of the staff. They gave him an excellent start to his education helping me grow him into a lovely young boy and for that I cannot thank them enough. Baby no2 will be joining nursery at the end of the year and I can't wait for her to start her nursery journey too!

Top class nursery. My daughter has been attending this nursery since June 2016. It's really a home from home for her and it has brought her development on leaps and bounds. The staff are excellent and the manager is an asset, always available and offering any assistance required.
All staff are very professional yet extremely friendly and I feel very confident leaving my daughter in their hands. The food the children are given is of a high standard and is all home cooked on the premises. The outside facilities are also excellent and the staff are keen to utilise this at every opportunity. All in all a fab place.

Simply a fantastic nursery. All 3 of my children have been here from the baby room to leaving for school.

The care and attention of the staff is outstanding. They look after all aspects of care from naps and potty training to getting ready for school. The children become so fond of them and are happy and content. They always have fun and interesting things to do and experience and the nursery constantly looks for new ideas and inspiration. Their outdoor space is outstanding with individualised areas for each age group. The highlight for the 3-5s is a "mudpatch" area in the trees where they are free to play with sticks and build dens, and they have a tortoise!

The management at the nursery is exceptional. They have high expectations of their staff yet maintain a positive and supportive environment. Many of the staff are working towards further qualifications. They work closely with the parents and seek and act on feedback.

The food is good quality and healthy, it's very clean and safe.

This is an excellent nursery!
As a mother or any legal guardian for that matter, you will be aware of how hard it is to leave your baby for the first time and how hard it is to leave your child in nursery for the first time. My child started here at the age of 4 weeks old, so it was extremely hard for me. Every staff member here made me feel so relaxed and at ease with the whole situation. From the manager to the kitchen staff, each and every one went out of their way to ensure both me and my baby were settled and happy.
All the staff are friendly and helpful, you're always greeted with a smile. Each staff member takes their time to get to know you and your child, to make nursery a happy experience.
Always thinking of new and exciting ways to develop children's skills from sensory trays to role playing.

An excellent nursery where all the staff are fully focused on the well being and education of all children and also making it a very fun place for the children to spend most of their early years. The Manager and her staff are the most helpful and friendly set of people I have ever met and their dedication to all the kids is amazing.

My twins have attended this nursery since they were nine months old and are now nearly ready to leave to start school. Throughout their time at this nursery they have grown into smart, confident and friendly individuals and I would recommend this nursery to all parents.

My son has been a part of the nursery since he was 8 months old and has been apart of every room in the setting, he is now about to set of for school with O&L going going above & beyond to ease his transition from nursery to school. My son is excited to go everyday, he is given lots of opportunities to learn and have fun at the same time, the setting is brilliant, catering for all ages and learning needs. Cannot fault O&L in anyway, they have been a big part of our little boys life and we are sad that his journey there is coming to an end. The manager and staff are brilliant and have kids as there first priority. Highly recommend!

My son and daughter absolutely love going to nursery, my daughter has been there since she was 6 months old and seeing her flourish in such an amazing environment is fantastic. The service all the staff provide is fantastic. The staff are always friendly and helpful they are brilliant with the children and the managers also get involved with the care of the children so they are all well known faces to the parents and children. My kids can't get out the car quick enough on nursery days to play with their friends. I cannot recommend this fantastic nursery enough. the learning material and meals supplied are fantastic my children eat better than me most of the time haha! 10/10 from me and my children! keep up the good work!

This nursery is very friendly and approachable if you ever need or would like to ask something. Nothing is too much bother for any of the staff and I feel 100% confident in leaving my son with them. They are all experienced and are very good at what they do. The management team as always there if needed and on the whole the nursery is very well run with happy staff members.

From our very first visit to the nursery, we felt at ease & loved how the staff interacted with our daughter. There is genuine kindness and affection for the children and my daughter is delighted to go to nursery each day. Activities are tailored to age & development stage & there's always something fun and exciting to do. The environment is very inclusive-all children are made to feel special and safe. The manager runs the nursery very well and takes time to speak to each family whenever required. She also knows and speaks to each child individually and even sacrifices her spare time to create activities/enhance outdoor space. Children are nurtured according to their own needs & everything moves at their pace. All aspects of care including eating, napping & learning outcomes/observations are carefully documented and shared with parents. I can call whenever I like throughout the day to check on my child which gives me peace of mind. I cannot recommend this nursery enough!

A fabulous nursery. All staff go above & beyond, they take such good care of all the children, we have never once had any concerns. So glad we chose here for our girls, and would recommend it to anyone.
It will be a sad day when we have to leave.

The staff at O&L have been wonderful so far. They have made our little ones transition into nursery very easy, and they have made it very easy on us too (us parents who worry about everything, staff even making time for our daily phone calls to check on our wee one)
The staff are warm and caring. The activities they create are fun and full of adventure. Our babies development has came on tenfold since starting which just goes to prove they provide a nurturing environment. He has so much fun. Nothing makes me happier than seeing our boy happy, and the staff are definitely to thank for that.
I can't praise them or thank them enough. Each staff member we have came into contact with has greeted us and more importantly spoken to our son even when busy with other tasks. You can tell they are devoted not only by the care they provide but by the little things they take notice of.
Our son loves the food too.

A fabulous nursery where your child is their number one priority. No request is too difficult carry out. The food is delicious! My son always has extra helpings. Every day is full of fun, engaging and creative activities stimulating cognitive development, social relationships and an awareness of the world around them. They spend as much time as possible outside either in the play zones or the muddy patch. The staff are superb. They are bright, enthusiastic and genuinely get excited when they see your child reaching milestones.

Our daughter has been attending this nursery since she was six months old, now nearing four. This nursery is well managed with great team moral, with only the best focus on the children. All the team have great communication skills to relay info back to us as parents at the end of each day.
This nursery also benefits from having the best outdoor area I've seen, promoting great outdoor and messy play.
Even with this nursery having such a large headcount, it is very personal with good relations built between staff, parents and children.

My 2 daughters have attended Oranges and Lemons since November 2015 and we wish we had enquired about places here earlier. We are overjoyed at how welcome our girls are made to feel every day by each and every one of the nursery staff. The girls in the 2-3 room are very kind and caring towards my youngest and the girls in the 3-5 room make sure my eldest is settled quickly as she only attends pm session. The management team have helped me with enquiries I've had about helping my girls sleep all night, special medication etc. A wonderful nursery setting.

The only nursery I can ever imagine sending my daughter and any future children. The staff treat the children like one of their own and are so caring towards them. The manager is the best nursery manager I have ever encountered and would go to the ends of the earth for each and every child in her care. The kids get so many different activities and learning opportunities. My daughter has progressed so well here and is clearly streets ahead of other children thanks to the dedication of the staff.

When we first started looking at Nursery's for our Son, there was just so many to choose from. We had submitted a few enquiries but Oranges And Lemons were the only ones that got back to us. From the moment we stepped inside we got a good feeling for the place. Getting used to the idea of leaving our Son with someone else was a bit stressful and emotional but the manager and all the staff have been very supportive! Taking us through step by step. Oranges And Lemons are really good and we would highly recommend them for your children!

A very well managed nursery with approachable staff. Great outside space to have activities and to play in. Enables my daughter to make friends, learn and interact with children of the same age in preparation for school.
