Reviewer Connection to Tiddlywinks Day Nursery Clayton

  • Mother of Child

My daughter has been attending Tiddlywinks since she was 12 months old and she absolutely loves it! The staff are amazing, so helpful, so nice - I feel I have built a good relationship with every single one of them. They have a lot of time for you but most importantly they have an amazing relationship with my daughter and they each bring something different to her personal development.

My daughter has learnt so much since attending this Nursery I can't thank the staff enough. Everyone who meets/sees my daughter always comments on how good her vocabulary is, how well-mannered she is and how confident she is. It's such a fun environment for the kids and there's not a wall in there that isn't covered in pictures or paintings that the children have done. They're really proud of the children they take care of and that shows. Also it's always clean and tidy no matter what time of day you turn up! I don't know how they do it!

Tiddlywinks is a brilliant nursery and all the staff are great at what they do. The nursery holds lots of theme days which incorporate what the children are learning about. My child has been with Tiddlywinks from 11 months old and her development has come on leaps and bounds. The selection of food provided to the children is healthy and varied. Management staff are also very approachable.

Since my daughter started going to the nursery I have noticed that she is developing really well and her speech is loads better, all the staff and management are very good in what they do, they are very good towards the children and parents. Any questions or queries I have ever had they always do their best to help with. The rooms, activities and food they provide are excellent. Our daughter was shy when she first started going but everyone's approach has seen her come on loads in all areas.
