‘Thank you very much for taking the time to show us around your wonderful nursery. We were so impressed with the amount of space in the light, airy rooms as well as the amount of facilities you had at the various learning stations around the room.
In particular we enjoyed seeing how confident happy and friendly all the children in your care were with us and each other! I think having a kitchen on site is wonderful for the children in introducing them to food making and the height of all the facilities, enabling for maximum independence was superb! You have a fantastic nursery and we would highly recommend you to other mums with youngsters.’ – Mr & Mrs Groombridge (March 2014)
