What our parents say

This setting is outstanding in my eyes. My child's key worker is great at communicating with me and my daughter. The child care is fantastic and I know the staff are all trained in areas such as safeguarding and health and safety. The food is nutritious and they have great resources.

Thanks to Sarah for being really wonderful at the nursery. Our child's progress under Sarah’s care has been impressive and she has grown from a baby to a toddler beautifully. Sarah is a great influence in the 0-2s and I think her work is commendable. Thank you to Sarah.

Thanks to Charlie for taking such good care of my little one. Charlie is extremely caring and is a real honest person. Her patience and attention is commendable, my little one absolutely loves being with her. Charlie’s has all the qualities of a good childcare nursery and we would like to thank her for all her help with our little one and would like to wish her all the best for the future.
