Emma Howard - 31 May, 2013
I just needed to say an enormous thank you to everyone who has been involved in looking after and developing both Alexander and more recently Sebastian. To see their excitement at going to nursery and then hearing about their days is fantastic. We will miss you all and seeing your happy face everyday at drop off and pick up. (Elmscot)
Michelle Haigh - 02 April, 2013
Thanks so much to all the staff at Elmscot for the fantastic care that our daughter Jessica receives. Jess really enjoys attending Elmscot and the progress she has made is most impressive. We are amazed at the range of different activites and quality of work under taken with Jessica. We are so glad we decided upon Elmscot for Jessica. Michelle and Simon Haigh
Stephanie Maunder - 14 March, 2013
We are thrilled with Lucy's progress. She is keen to learn new things and is very sociable. We are so pleased she is enjoying nursery so much <Elmscot>.
Charlotte Phillips - 06 March, 2013
I just wanted to say what a fantastic addition to an already excellent facility at Elmscot the new Oak playroom makes. I personally am delighted with it and Holly is too. She is even more excited about coming to nursery now Credit to the whole Elmscot team for making the changes so quickly and smoothly. I think the new Oak room will give the pre-schoolers an even better opportunity to prepare for Reception and will be wonderful in the summer months to have such ready access to the garden.
Catherine Armstrong - 06 March, 2013
Thank you for working so hard to allow Eilidh to settle in at Elmscot. I love the handover at the end of day when i hear what she has been up to.
Odette Thompson - 06 March, 2013
Thank you for making going back to work easy. Having had Harriet at Elmscot for 4 years it was an easy choice sending Joshua as well. Claire is fantastic and really looks after him, I know he is in safe hands.
Nicola Percival - 06 March, 2013
My two girls went to Elmscot and we wouldn't have sent our son Lewis anywhere else. The team have been really supportive with settling and Lewis is very happy. Thanks to all the staff at Elmscot who have provided excellent care for our children for 11 years.
Mark Fryar - 06 March, 2013
Jake always enjoys his time at Hale Nursery. The pre-school room and outside play setting is a lovely spot and staff are friendly. Well structured play should be good preparation for school
Emily Street - 06 March, 2013
From the day I looked around it (Elmscot) felt right. 4 children later I'd never send my children anywhere else. Thank you to all the team.x
rashad al-safar - 06 March, 2013
I love hale day nursery my daughter always comes out with a smile and has a fantastic time. the staff are wonderful and i will be sad when sofia has to leave. Rashad
Vicki Bryne - 06 March, 2013
Thank you Amanda, Alex and Katie for all your work, we have loved Jacob's time with you all looking after him in Squirrel room (Hale) and look forward to his time now in Owl room.
Caroline Britton - 06 March, 2013
Claudia continues to enjoy nursery and spending time with the Rabbit room team (Hale) and the other children. I would like to thank Jenna, Charlotte and Francesca - we feel very lucky to have had Claudia looked after by such a friendly, caring and professional team. You have made the transition back to the working world so much easier as I know she is in safe hands. Thank you.
Rachael Woodhall - 06 March, 2013
We are very pleased with how Jacob has settled at nursery and with the progress he has made and continues to make. He loves the staff in Hedgehog room (Hale) and is excited in a morning when he is told he is going to nursery.
Philippa Biggs - 06 March, 2013
Our eldest son Isaac is at Elmscott. When he first started participating in stretch and grow and drama, he was very shy and not too keen. However, the staff at Elmscott have been fantastic in encouraging him to take part, and he now loves taking part in both of them. We are so pleased with his progress.
Claire Court - 28 February, 2013
I just want to pass on my thanks publicly to Catherine in the pre-school room at Elmscot. Bess has always been a fussy eater and rarely eats her lunch at nursery. This has been going on from 18 months-3 years. However we have suddenly had a breakthrough thanks to Catherine. With a little encouragement and more attention at mealtimes, Catherine has succeeded in getting Bess to eat her lunch every day for the past three weeks and on one occasion she even had a second helping Nothing short of a miracle. Thanks to Catherine and the pre-school team for your hard work x
Claire & Wanson Chiu - 24 February, 2013
It had been 17 months now since Aidan joined M&M in Elmscot, which seems just like yesterday. And from next week, he will be leaving M&M and moving up to the 2nd floor. We would like to say a huge “Thank you” for everyone in M&M who have been taking great care of Aidan, especially Kanta. Your kindness, patience and professionalism had made our shy little boy who couldn’t speak a word of English to today’s confident boy who couldn’t stop talking about the fun stories of his friends and teachers in nursery. He had thoroughly enjoyed every minute in M&M. I am sure he will miss everyone. Thank you. xx
Susan Smith - 05 February, 2013
Emily loves coming to School`s Out @ the Bollin so much that she requested to come back in the afternoons she simply cant wait for holiday club she feels at home and loves all her Aunties.
Jo Stretton - 19 December, 2012
The team in Chestnut (Elmscot) were fantastic, they helped settle my little boy in. He was full of smiles when i picked him up. A big thank you to Claire and Joanna
Janette Boynton - 18 December, 2012
Alex really enjoyed being a part of the nativity play on Tuesday - he had a big smile on his face the whole way through. Congratulations to all the staff and children for putting on a fantastic performance :)
Rebecca Moss - 13 December, 2012
Elmscot's Christmas play was lovely
Lyn and Mike Denny - 21 November, 2012
Claudia and Louise have been at Elmscot for seven months now and we are so pleased with how well they have both settled. It was a fairly difficult transition for Claudia, with moving to a new country away from family, friends and familiar places, not to mention starting a new nursery. We are so happy to say that she is finally starting to genuinely enjoy going to nursery. It has been a slow progress, but so worth it to hear her chatting about her friends and teachers and all the things that happen at nursery in such a happy way. We think the consistency and strong routine that Elmscot provides as well as the patience shown by the staff have been key in helping her to settle so well. Louise has enjoyed Elmscot from the beginning and we are so happy that our adventurous little girl is encouraged to climb and make a mess and do all those things that she can't do as freely at home. The activities you think up for small babies to do are wonderful. We look forward to watching her enjoy the experiences in the toddlers room next Thank you for minding our two daughters so well.
Catherine Armstrong - 13 November, 2012
Eilidh is really enjoying Elmscot and often has a glow at the end of the day when i pick her up. Eilidh has had a lot of changes - new bedroom/sister/nursery this summer/autumn and is hopefully now settling into them all this should help with confidence, we will continue to encourage her.
Shelley Gosling - 12 November, 2012
A huge Thank You to all the girls on the Pre-School floor at Elmscot - my daughter Emma has been with you for less than 2 months and already I can see how much she's progressed during that time, with her speech and general independence. We've also just come home from our son Harry's first Parents evening since he started at St Hugh's in September - and his Reception teacher commented on what a great start he'd had with you. He's settled in so well and I have you all to thank for doing such a great job with him. So keep up the great work (please). X
Julie Stepney - 02 November, 2012
Massive thanks to the Woodlands team in their preparing of Myles for school. We have just had his first Parents' Evening and the teachers feel he has settled really well, making lots of friends, and is LOVING reading his Floppy Phonics books to us. It is the end of an era for our family as we have been coming to Woodlands since you opened in 2006. The children had loads of fun everyday and have formed friendships that have overcome not going to the same school together. A truly lovely environment.
Jo Laird - 30 October, 2012
I just wanted to say a big thank you on behalf of my sons. When I asked them if they enjoyed their morning at Holiday Club, they said it was EPIC and AWESOME P.S Apparently lunch was WICKED Jo Laird (Woodlands Pre School)
Cath Park - 02 October, 2012
Just wanted to say a much belated but massive thank you to the pre-school team (Elmscot). Since Abi has started school I've realised even more all of the good work you did in getting the children ready for school. All of the team are experienced, enthusiastic and knowledgable and genuinely care for the children they look after. Cath Park
Anna Sharman - 01 October, 2012
APS School's Out - James has really settled in well to School's Out and is always so happy when I arrive having had a great time. The girls are so friendly and always have smiles on their faces when I come to collect James. They are a credit to School's Out
Nicola & John Henderson - 27 September, 2012
The time has come for Neve to move onto BIG school. We are really excited for her but we will all miss everybody at Elmscot, and are very sad that she has to move on. We cannot thank you enough for the care and love that you have given Neve over the last 4 years. Not once have we worried about her and we have known that each day she would have a lovely time. We could not have wished for a better start to her schooling years and would like to thank you all for this. PS love the fact that she is smiling at you every day on the pre-school wall Nicola John & Neve xxx
Gemma Brown - 11 September, 2012
We cannot believe the time has come for our girls and us to say goodbye. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the security and dedicated childcare our girls have received over the last 3 years at Woodlands. Eva and Phoebe have had an amazing time and have grown very fond of many of you. Phoebe will not be far away, she'll be continuing her journey at Elmscot with me. As for Eva, she has the foundations imparted by the team that will take her forward onto school. Many, many thanks for everything With lots of love from Gemma, Jonathan, Eva+Phoebe Stott xxx
Caroline Langford - 31 August, 2012
Its Abigail’s last day at Woodlands today. I just wanted to say a big thank you to all the staff who have looked after Abigail over the years. In particular Miss Jackson, Nicola and Miriam have been fantastic in the care and teaching they have given. A true credit to Woodlands. Abigail has always enjoyed her time at nursery, and will miss everybody. I must say that the outings she has gone on during her time in pre-school have been fantastic and memorable.
Helen Mark & Oscar Welch - 30 August, 2012
Oscar, Mark and myself would just like to shout a big THANK YOU. Oscar has had a wonderful time with you over the past 3.5 years and you have certainly been a great support for me. Each week and each room Oscar has had the opportunity to do and learn different things. You have helped so much to give him confidence and enjoyment. He tells me all the time that my cooking is not as good as Helen's, which is probably true. I hope the rest of his schooling is as strong and as much fun as it has been at Woodlands. Choosing Woodlands is one of the best decisions we have ever made.
Jane Holford - 17 August, 2012
Matt and I would like to say a huge thank you to Woodlands for the excellent care you have given James Bell over the last 2 years. It is quite unnerving leaving your child (especially your first) with someone else when you go back to work, however Matt and I have never had to worry about James as we always knew that he was safe and cared for well. The activities and menus have all been excellent and James has really loved his time there. I know James's brother Thomas will really enjoy his time at Woodlands. Thank you to everyone and see you soon with Thomas. Xxxx
Julie & Mark Bailey - 17 August, 2012
We would like to say a HUGE thank you to everyone at Woodlands for putting a huge smile on our daughter's face every day. Lauren's face lights up every time we bring her here and she never wants to come home which is proof of the fun, love and encouragement she receives. We are so sad her time here has come to an end and we know she will really miss everything about Woodlands. Thank you SO much for everything.
Jo Roberts - 16 August, 2012
A great big 'Thank You' to you all for William's wonderful time at Woodlands. He has enjoyed every minute. Thank you to Catherine for settling him in when he first started and getting him ready for Pre-school where Miss Jackson, Nicola, Miriam, Jo and the other girls have brought the best out in him and done a fab job looking after him. Thank you as well to Helen and Terri for the delicious lunches that he almost always wanted 2nds of. Finally marks to Carla for putting up with my dithering phone calls. I will send a photo of William in his uniform and no doubt you will see him when Emily starts at Woodlands next month. Thank you again. xxxxxx
Shirley Jones - 10 August, 2012
Thank you to all the staff at Woodlands for all you have done for Jessica over the last year. She has been very happy here and has come on leaps and bounds. It's given me peace of mind whilst Ive been at work to know she has been in a secure and happy enviroment where she has been taken care of by such lovely staff, especially Ania who has shown alot of care and love towards our daughter.
Lee Frost - 06 August, 2012
Dudley and Esme have loved School’s Out, and Margriet, Lucy and the team have done a fabulous job of keeping them busy, stimulated and entertained
Georgie Myers - 01 August, 2012
The staff at Elmscot are amazing. So approachable, caring and professional. As a qualified nursery nurse I thought it would be hard to find somewhere that met all my expectations but Elmscot has ticked all the boxes. We couldn't be happier - it has made returning to work much easier than I thought I would. THANK YOU
Melissa & Nick Durrant - 27 July, 2012
To all the staff at Woodlands who've helped look after and teach Matilda we'd like to say a huge thank you. Matilda has had some fabulous experiences.

Sarah Riley - 27 July, 2012
We feel Thomas has come on immensely during his time at Woodlands Nursery. He has always had a happy face when we have picked him up and been excited to tell us what he has been up to. We have been very impressed with the care provided to Thomas and the level and quality of communication with us his parents. The whole family will miss our visits to Woodlands and we wish you well for the future.

I wish you well in the future and hope Woodlands continues in providing other children with such a great level of care.
Sally Gilder - 19 July, 2012
The boys have forged some great relationships with many of the School's Out Bowdon Staff which has made their time there even more enjoyable and I'd like to say a special thank you to Hannah, Francessca and Kelly for looking after the boys so well.
Gemma & Jonathan Brown & Stott - 06 July, 2012
Thank you to everyone at Woodlands for their dedication and excellent care that our girls have had since beening there.

The girls will miss the staff and children very much but move forward with fantastic skills alot of which the nursery staff has helped to instill. Thank you
Kaukab Shah - 06 July, 2012

Katja Houston - 22 June, 2012
I would like to thank all the staff who have done a fantastic job in looking after Emily while she has been at the nursery (Hale). She has been very happy there, has bonded well with the staff and loved the activities. As a parent, I've really appreciated knowing that Emily is in such good hands. I would thoroughly recommend the nursery.

Just wanted to say a BIG well done to Rachael and the Hale team on their thoroughly well deserved praise in the recent Ofsted report.I am really pleased that the Inspector recognised what fantastic work has taken place over the last few months, as our son George could not be happier.

Susan Pavey - 25 April, 2012
First time my twins aged 7 have attended Schools Out holiday club. I moved them from their previous one because it was nearer to my new home and better hours. My kids absolutely adored it. The staff, the activities and the food were all great. My children only ever want to go there in the holidays now. Many thanks
Shelley Gosling - 24 April, 2012
Just a little Thank You to everyone at Elmscot for the brilliant trip into Manchester today to visit the Science Museum - they had such a fantastic day. I'm not sure what they enjoyed most...the experiments, the rides in the bus and trams or the picnic. It's wonderful that you provide these trips - and very much appreciated Thank you xxx
Windeler Lyn - 29 March, 2012
Thank you so much for your whole team looking after Matthew so well, I cannot believe how much he enjoys being at nursery (Hale). As you know I had him in a nursery nearer to my home before and moved him so that he was nearer to my work. I am so glad that I made the change because the difference in Matthew is fantastic.
Donna Mairs - 28 March, 2012
I just wanted to say I am extremely pleased with Lila's progress, she adores coming to nursery and we feel reassured that she spends her day creatively and learning every step of the way. The carers are a credit to the nursery and both our girls mention them constantly. It is lovely to have no concerns about their welfare or development. Both of which are managed with care at Woodlands.
Sarah Hawthorne - 26 March, 2012
You get what you pay for - great nursery (Woodlands)
Helen Holmes - 22 March, 2012

Nicky Pimlott - 16 March, 2012
We were fascinated to hear Nathan tell us about the consequences of an oil spill on a poor little duck. He had remembered so vividly what had happened and what it had meant for the duck. Congratulations to Emma (Elmscot) for broadening the minds in pre-school in such a memorable way.
Emma Laycock - 16 March, 2012
Navigation School's Out. I would like to say I have always been extremely happy with School's Out. Scarlett has loved going to Donna and colleagues are always friendly and helpful.

Joanne White - 07 March, 2012
As we are leaving for a short time I was given my son Zack's development file. The file is so well organised, the observations and photographs are amazing. It is all linked to the EYFS and I know what Zack has been learning. I look at this and think he is so well looked after. Thank you Anita and we look forward to our return to Woodlands very soon.
Kath Richards - 06 March, 2012
I just wanted to say how really pleased we are with how well Isabelle is developing. Not just her speech but also her lovely and entertaining personality. She really enjoys nursery (she is at Woodlands) and we look forward to hearing what she has been doing when we pick her up. She has bought home some lovely art work. We are really pleased with the variety of activities she takes part in which are helping her to develop so beautifully.
Kerry Edwards - 01 March, 2012
When asked whether my son Joseph would be going to nursery at school my immediate response was no. My daughter had such a good grounding at Woodlands and I would like Joseph to stay here so he gets the same opportunities that Rachael had. Thank you to the all of you who work in preschool.
Claire Osborn - 01 March, 2012
Thank you to all the staff (cooks included) at Woodlands nursery for all your love, care and support towards Erynn and myself over the last 2 and 1/2 years. I truly believe Erynn has had a great start in life with your help and we will be forever grateful. Thank you x
Wendy Tozer - 29 February, 2012
We are delighted with how much George is enjoying his fun packed days at Hale Day Nursery. The addition of the chickens, especially as spring is round the corner is even more exciting. The recent redecoration has been seamless and the baby room is especially clean and fresh. Thank you to the baby team for making George so welcome everyday.
Kate Topley - 20 February, 2012
Dear School's Out-Team, I would like to thank you for the excellent care your team at BCS have always provided Luka was always very happy, and very well looked after.
Helen and Mark Williams - 13 February, 2012
We are delighted with how our 2 year old son Isaac has settled into Elmscot under the superb experience and care of Michelle and Kanta in Mulberry room. Isaac joined on 4th Jan 2012, 2 days per week and settled well after only a handful of full days. His care before this was all done by grandparents so quite a different experience for him and a challenge for all those involved, but to our absolute joy he is now happy so quickly, we actually had to really convince him to leave for home last week, he wanted to stay so much Michelle and Kanta have made what was a very daunting challenge for us actually very easy, so thank you.
Suzanne and Richard England - 12 February, 2012
We are extremely pleased with the progress our twins Evie and Ellie are making with you. Evie's language skills are improving daily aswell as her understanding of when to use words, descriptions and sentences. Ellie is talking so much more now. She loves singing and dancing which is much encouraged by your Stretch and Grow sessions. The support you provide to our family is invaluable to us. Whilst recovering from 2 years of cancer treatment, I am increasingly struggling to wear them out or play as physically as they need. They are so happy when they spend their day each week with you Thank you
Wanson & Claire Chiu - 03 February, 2012
Just want to say thank you to everyone in M&M, especially Kanta & Michelle. Aidan has been going to Elmscot for 4 months now, but it feels like he's been there for years. He is getting on so well with everyone. Every time you ask him do you like nursery? He always say yes with a big smile. As a Chinese parents, we were very worried about how he would communicate in nursery, but his English has improved so much since he started, and now he has no problem at all with communication. We really appreciate all the effort from the nurses. Also because Aidan has food intolerance and eczema, all the nurses have been paying extra attention to his food and reaction, also apply cream when necessary. We are very grateful for the care Aidan received in Elmscot. Thank you very much.
Sarah Gough - 26 January, 2012

Shelley Gosling - 22 January, 2012
Just a little thank you to the Pre-School team for the brilliant time that Harry had on his bus trip to the library this week - he has so much fun every day and it's amazing how much he's learning without even realising I couldn't be happier with the level of care and support that my two get at Elmscot - the staff are fantastic and it's very clear to me that they really care about all the children there. Thanks a million
Odette Thompson - 30 November, 2011

The staff in her room have all been absolutely fantastic, without exception, and we really couldn't have wished for better.

John & Sue Chapman - 25 August, 2011
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the staff at Woodlands Day Nursery who have been an instrumental factor in Nathan's development. In particular his first key workers Anna & Philippa who settled Nathan into the baby room so well and helped him to adapt to nursery life. His later keyworkers Marina, Miriam & Catherine, Liam, Nicola & Rosa who have helped Nathan progress between the different stages and played a huge part in helping Nathan become the delightful child he is today. A personal thanks though to Carla who seems to have been with Nathan in most of his rooms. Not only have you been a fantastic influence on Nathan but you have also given us as parents lots of support and advice.
Richard & Julie Lynn - 25 August, 2011

Can't believe it's Olivia's last day. Where has the time gone? Thank you so much for all that you have done in giving Olivia so many different experiences. I know she has loved being with you and has flourished in such a happy caring enviroment where she has been encouraged and supported. It has been a pleasureto see her development, most especially to watch her confidence grow. We feel her time at Woodlands has been so special and she has had a terrific grounding.

A HUGE thank you to you all at Woodlands for taking such great care of my three ginger ninjas over the last four and half years. They couldn't have asked for a better start in life. Don't change anything as it's a brillant nursery.

I have been coming to Woodlands every week for nearly six years and I am sad to say my visits will soon be coming to an end as Molly is moving on to big school. Woodlands is a welcoming nursery with a real family atmosphere and I have always been confident leaving my children with the caring staff. The food is fantastic, the turnover of staff low so there is good continuity and facilities, especially the garden, are fantastic. Carla, one of the managers is very approachable and always available both around nursery, by email and by phone. The staff work really hard, have the patience of saints and obviously love the children. Please pass on my gratitude to all at Woodlands for making a working mum feel much less guilty about leaving her children

Rhea's numerical reading and creative skills have progressed rapidly over the last 6 months and she has also become remarkably independent with day to day things. She has become a lot more emotive too. Overall she seems to have developed a lot recently. Thanks to the excellent pre-school team for your input towards Rhea's development.

The teams have been fabulous at helping Petra make the transition from baby days to toddlerdom. All of their efforts have been rewarded by Petra becoming the happy confident little girl that she is today. We couldn’t have wished for a better start to Petra’s nursery days and are very happy that we chose Elmscot. Thank you for everything.

We have seen a big step forward in Hannah's imaginative play in the last few months and her ability to count objects has also improved. We already work on numbers with Hannah at home but will also concentrate on shapes and some additional letters work to build on the good work the preschool team are doing.
Ruth Butterworth - 02 August, 2010
Ella loves and gets so much from the range of activities on offer. Her confidence and understanding of the world has gone from strength to strength during her time there. Thank you for all your hard work and for making Ella feel so safe secure and nurtured as she has explored the world and her relationships with peers over the last 7 months, she will miss you all and we will all be sad to say goodbye.

I wanted to say how highly we rate Woodlands and all the staff there, in particular Anita and Lisa who did such a great job at the start, and of course Sally who Seth is really going to miss. Everyone has always been kind, reassuring and helpful, both to Seth and his parents I would like to congratulate Dee and Steph for having set up such a great business.
