Julian’s Mum & Dad – Elmscot Chester Nursery


My husband and I just want to say thank you for taking care of Julian so well! It was hard to let him go at the beginning, but it fills us with joy to see him so happy when we drop him off and pick him up. He has been developing and learning so many new things and you are really helping him discover the world!

On Saturday we went out with a group of friends and their children and Julian looked confident and relaxed. We believe that Elmscot has really contributed to making him an even happier and more curious little boy.

We just wanted you all to know that we really appreciate everything you are doing. Nothing is more important than seeing our son smile and we are lucky to have found you.

This thank you of course, is extended to the whole team from management to practitioners and kitchen staff.

We just want to say a huge thank you to everyone that has looked after Iyla since she was 9 months old, she started Woodlands crawling backwards and she’s leaving such a fantastic grown up little girl (diva!).

Everyone in all of the rooms Rabbits, Otters Owls and Hedgehogs have been fantastic with her and I cannot fault the care she has received.

Thank you so much!

The O’Connor Family – Elmscot Woodlands Nursery

Thank you for everything you have done to make our daughter feel settled and secure at nursery. At first it wasn’t easy but with your hard work and perseverance she is a different child.

Sophia & Max’s Mum and Dad – Elmscot Hale Nursery

Just a quick e-mail to say thank you for the lovely parents’ evening report for both Sophia and Max.

We are delighted with the progress that they are making and the fact that they are just so happy. They appear to love all of the activities and get so much from them. The information sharing between both nurseries is excellent and helps to provide for the individual needs of both Sophia and Max.

Wherever I go, it goes with saying that I always unreservedly recommend the Elmscot group but with Hale and Broussa in mind specifically.

Thank you again to Alex, Nancy and Rachel for last night and the extra time given. We appreciate that it is already such a long day for everyone but it is really a lovely opportunity to hear about how the children are doing.

If you could please pass on our thanks to all the staff involved with the children at both nurseries, it would be much appreciated.

Kind regards

Natanya and Sean

Helen – Elmscot Nantwich

My granddaughter attends Elmscot Nursery and I would just like to say this has been the best possible start for her.

The staff there have brought my granddaughter on in so many ways: her social and life skills, her speech, her eating, her confidence.

A massive thank you to this amazing, friendly, professional nursery

Joshua & Orla’s Mum and Dad – Elmscot Hale Nursery

Please may I take the opportunity to thank you for the amazing time both Joshua and Orla have had at Hale.

The standard and quality you provide is outstanding and we will be very sad that our time at Hale nursery will come to an end.

The Bridge Family – Elmscot Altrincham Nursery

We just wanted to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to each and every one of you that have  worked closely with Oliver. It has been a huge part of his life for 3 years and the impact your nursery has made has been so positive.

He  loves coming to nursery and he will miss it a lot. He has learnt so much with you and his confidence has developed hugely. We really appreciate the hard work and dedication demonstrated by all the staff at Elmscot.


Heidi’s Mum – Elmscot Hale Nursery

Hi Stacey & Laura,

I’ve been meaning to say how impressed I am with Eleanor and Rachel – they’re fantastic. In fact everyone I encounter is lovely. You’ve got a fantastic team.

Heidi has a fantastic first day and Eleanor has been amazing. I’m genuinely so happy and reassured Heidi is in such good care. What a lovely and talented team!




Hugo’s Dad – Hale Day Nursery

I just wanted to leave some short feedback for Sofina.  We have been thoroughly impressed with Sofina always having such a positive and happy approach around the children.  It is infectious and we can tell immediately that Hugo is always incredibly comfortable and warm around her.

Earlier this week, Hugo was having a slightly difficult drop-off but Sofina bent down to offer Hugo a cuddle which immediately changed his feelings.  He calmed down and managed to give me a wave goodbye.  What may seem like a simple thing had a huge impact on our day and is an amazing reassurance that Hugo is in safe hands.  Sofina clearly has a great rapport with the children and parents alike and her enthusiasm is inspiring.

We are always grateful for everything all the staff do for Hugo (and have done previously for Tilly), but this was a particularly stark reminder.

Thank you all – and thank you Sofina!


William & Florrie’s Mum – Elmscot Hale Nursery

Hi Stacey and Laura and all the staff at Hale

We just wanted to say how much we loved the Christmas bags. Thank you so much to the staff in Owls and Squirrels for making them with the children, we really appreciate it. The things in William’s bag were particularly thoughtful and we will keep the Christmas decorations to enjoy for years to come.

Also thanks to everyone at Hale for providing such a wonderful environment for William and Florrie. I hope you all have a well earned rest over Christmas and see you in the new year.




Declan’s Mum – Woodlands Nursery

Just want to say a huge thank-you to everyone for their support with Declan over the last year. Since starting when he was one, everyone has been amazing!

As parents we will certainly miss him being here!!

The Croston Family – Woodlands Nursery

We wanted to say a massive THANK YOU! to you all for taking such good care of our babies over the past two years. They have both loved their time at Woodlands.

We will all miss you and are really sad to be leaving.

The Hoyte Family – Broussa Day Nursery

I just want to take this opportunity to thank yourselves and all the staff at the nursery. Both my kids’ and my own experience at the nursery has been amazing.

I’m so happy that I choose this nursery for my kids. The whole team made my kids feel special every single day. The staff’s attention to detail to my kids as individuals was incredible. They always had a smile on their face and were so welcoming every day!

I dropped my kids off every day feeling content, knowing they were in the best hands and safe.

I noticed my kids development over the past year blossom as individuals, as well as build relationships with the staff and other children.

I myself loved having all my mini chats with everyone whilst dropping off or collecting!

I would like to especially highlight three ladies who where outstanding. Emma and Charlie in my daughter’s room, and Yvonne in my son’s room. All three of them demonstrated the utmost professionalism and were the most caring to my kids. Both my daughter and son always spoke of them and asked for them on a daily basis, to the point when Emma was on holiday my daughter asked me why she wasn’t in as she missed her. Charlie was so knowledgeable on helping me with my daughter and her 4-year-old diva behaviour!! She talked me through what to say and do to encourage similar things at home etc. Her advice was amazing and helped me so much! Yvonne is a very special lady who my son took to straight away; every day he went to her for his daily hugs! The love and care she showed towards him melted my heart!!

Of course the two amazing managers who put up with my daily phone calls and mad request! Thank you to you both ever so much! The nursery is simply the best and I will miss it ever so much myself! I will endeavour to keep in touch and send pictures of the kids to keep you all up to date! Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas and happy new year at Broussa!!

The Bromley Family – Broussa Day Nursery

Just wanted to pass on a huge thank you to you and all the team for your time at the meet the staff session the other night. It was lovely to have the chance to get to know Elise and chat for longer about my daughter’s days at Broussa, away from the usual pick up, and also to meet the staff in Rabbits, Owls and all the management team. I really appreciated everyone’s energy and enthusiasm at the end of what must have been a very long day and it meant a lot to hear the little anecdotes and details that there isn’t usually time for. Please pass on my thanks to everyone – my daughter is very lucky to spend time with such dedicated staff.

Eesa’s Mum – Woodlands Nursery

Thank you so much for all that you have done for my son, I can’t express how happy it makes me to see him settling in so well with you guys, he is such a cheerful little bubba these days.

You have all made going to work in the morning infinitely easier for me.

Faye – Hale Nursery

Our 2 year old has been here for over a year and we love it, more importantly she loves it ! The girls that work there are all so lovely, caring, and approachable. always a smile on arrival and the best care we could ask for. Our daughter has come on so much, learning new things every day and making wonderful friends. I was nervous to use a Nursery at first but it is the best decision we could have made. My daughter has food allergies and I do not have to worry as you always make her “special” food and ensure she is eating properly too.  Thank you all, you are super stars and I cannot speak highly enough of you.




Charlie’s Mum – Hale Nursery

Hi Laura,

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and all the team for the amazing care and support you gave Charlie during his time with you at Hale.

The change in him is incredible since he first started with you all and he left a very happy and confident little boy with everyone’s help. He is absolutely loving school and tells me to leave when I drop him off; I’m obviously pretending not to be gutted by the fact he can’t wait to get rid of me now!!

Thank you all again.

Sarah Breeze-Mathews – Nantwich Nursery

I cannot praise the Nantwich nursery enough. My daughter goes 2 times a week, and appears to love it. The food provided is of very high standard which my daughter seems to love. All the staff are brilliant and very helpful. They go out of their way to help whenever and wherever they can, and always with a smile.

Lovely atmosphere, full of smiles and all children seem to learn whilst enjoying themselves through play. Every single child and parent is treated in a personal and meaningful way. A lot of courses run for parents as well, which are brilliant.

The Moussallati Family – Woodlands Nursery

Dear All the lovely staff that looked after Mia and made her time with you so unforgettable and enjoyable in Hedgehog room, Otter room and Owl room. Thank you once more to all the teachers, management and kitchen team.

Aarnas Mummy – Woodlands Nursery

A hearty thank you for providing Aarna the platform to grow into such an independent, strong minded, loving little girl. Whenever I’ve left her in the morning, I’ve felt reassured that the wonderful team look after her so well. I wish you loads of success and keep up the fabulous work.

The Ahmed Family – Woodlands Nursery

“Thank you so much”

for looking after our little Eliza and growing her into the superstar she is today.

Joshua’s Mum – Woodlands Nursery

It is with the heaviest of hearts that our son Joshua attends Woodlands for the very last time today. We would like to thank all who have contributed to his happiness, growth and wellbeing over these past two years – Francesca, Katie and Catherine in Rabbits, Leah and Marina in Hedgehogs and the amazing Georgia and Sarah in Otters. When you make the decision to leave your baby in nursery, what you look and hope for is that they can provide an extension of the love, attention and support received at home, and the ladies in Woodlands have provided that in abundance. Thankyou from the bottom of our hearts for all you have done for Joshua, we will never forget what a fantastic early years education you have given him. We will miss you all dearly.

The Daly Family

The Sinha Family – Woodlands Nursery

Thank you all so much for looking after the boys so well, for teaching me so many new things and for all the memorable experiences. Thank you for EVERYTHING! I will miss you a lot.

The Entwistle family – Woodlands Nursery

Thank you so much for everything you have done to look after Joshua & Charlie, they have loved all the great activities you offer, especially the visits to the woods, yoga, outdoor play and stories. They will miss the amazing “family” at Woodlands.

Maggie’s Mum and Dad – Hale Nursery

We recently attended a baby stay and play at Hale Day Nursery, it was very beneficial. Maggie had a fantastic time exploring all the different play stations and toys and watching the other children. Her dad and I loved watching her and we are very happy that we can now imagine how much she enjoys her time at nursery, and some of the things she gets up to. It was really great to chat to the staff who look after Maggie and to get to know them more, and hear more about what Maggie gets up to. We also enjoyed meeting some of the other children who Maggie will be spending time with, and their parents

Thank you for putting so many lovely things on for us, we really appreciate it.

The Baker Family – Woodlands Nursery

Thank you so much for the love, care and enthusiasm you have shared with our children over the past 7 years. We will always look back on this nursery times/activities with fondness. We believe the nursery has given our children a great start to lif, you’ve made them interested to take part in activities and also great at trying new foods!

Thank you to you all it’s much appreciated!

Jack’s Mum – Woodlands Nursery

Just wanted to give some positive feedback about Rabbits room in particular Katie and Jess.

We are so pleased with the care, love and attention they give to Jack since he started in February. They are very thorough in their job ensuring I complete the necessary forms give great observations on tapestry, involve him in a wide variety of activities and call me when needed. They are great communicators at drop off and pick up and it’s obvious that they are pleased they have a good time with them and that he’s developing so much. Jack’s development has come on really well since being there which is fantastic.

As a busy working mum when I’m at work I don’t worry about Jack as I know he’s having such a great day and look forward to hearing what he’s been up to. It’s reassuring as he will be starting 4 days soon which is a large amount of time but I know he will thrive on it and we had no hesitation.

The nursery on the whole is lovely great outdoor area and it’s very nice walking around and other staff not in Rabbits make an effort to say hello to Jack. It’s a very friendly atmosphere which is great. The food is also great healthy variety which he loves.

Amelie’s Mum – Woodlands Nursery

Thank you all so much for looking after Amelie so well and helping her to grow into an amazing child, she is raring to go to school, but will miss you all.

Joshua’s Mum & Dad – Woodlands Nursery

Thank you so much for taking such great care of Joshua during his time with you – we feel so lucky that Joshua has been able to grow and learn in such a great place and with such fantastic people.

William’s Mum – Woodlands Day Nursery

We cant quiet believe that our time at Woodlands has come to an end. Nursery has been our life since he was 18 months old and he joined Otters. He has loved every moment and always been so well cared for, by all the ladies over the last few years. He has been completely spoilt by all of you!!
I am lucky enough to see first hand what a wonderful job you all do, the care, love and support you have shown my family is so appreciated. The Woodlands team have gone above and beyond for us. William is going to miss you all so much.

Madeleine’s Mum – Elmscot Nursery

Madeleine has been at Elmscot for mainly 5 days a week and as a parent when you choose somewhere to send your child it is with a huge amount of trepidation. Sending the most precious of things to people you don’t know, to act as almost surrogate parents is a daunting prospect. One thing that came so quickly at Elmscot was trust. I did, and to this very day, trust all the staff at Elmscot with Madeleine in every way. To make sure she is happy, well looked after, eats well and gets a whole range of activities she is very fortunate to have experienced.

I strongly believe the strides Madeleine has taken and the person she is today is a huge compliment to you as a team.

To thank all the staff as a group may seem a bit empty but without exception every person has been incredible. However it is almost fitting that Katie, her current key worker, will also be her last at Elmscot. With her working pattern I don’t always see her when I pick up Madeleine or drop her off, but that does not mean I don’t owe her a huge debt of gratitude. Madeleine talks about her nearly every day and when she understands she wont be back in her care I think I will have a very sad 3 year old.

Thank you again and wish everyone all the best for the future.

Darcey’s Mum – Hale Nursery

I’d like to thank everyone in Squirrels for making her transition to day care such a fun and exciting experience. Particular thanks also to Becky and Lauren who’ve taken such good care of her as her key workers, I’ll really miss seeing all her little adventures on tapestry and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the nursery to any other parents looking for the perfect setting for their little ones.

Jaxson’s Mum – Broussa Nursery

Just wanted to say how great squirrels room have been with Jaxson, all of his staff have been great and Jenny and Jade in particular have taken such care of him and really made an effort to tell us funny little stories about his day. They really got to know him and understand him which is much appreciated.



The Plant Family – Woodlands Nursery

To the spectacular ladies at Woodlands,

I can’t begin to tell you how grateful we are for everything that you have done for Isabelle. We will always be appreciative of the care, attention and support that you have provided.

Izzy has grown in confidence, ability and important life skills thanks to your guidance. You are all wonderful!

Leo & Max’s Mum – Broussa Nursery

Just wanted to thank you for all your help with Leo and Max being at Broussa. You’ve always been really accommodating to us. They’ve both really enjoyed their time with you and the care that they’ve received has been amazing. I think the team of staff that you’ve got now are fantastic and we’re sorry to be leaving them. Wishing you all the best for the future.

Alice’s Mum – Elmscot Nursery

Our daughter Alice only goes to nursery one day a week but the team make us and her feel so welcome. It’s fantastic for us to know she has such a wonderful time when she’s with the team. The meal choices are amazing and the activities they do are brilliant. We love the Tapestry app so we can keep up with what she’s doing. Alice’s key worker Chelsea has given her the best possible start. Thank you!

The Scott Family – Woodlands Nursery

Over the last 5 years both my children have attended Woodlands and loved every second of their experience. Thank you for giving them the best start to their education.

Kinder Family Woodlands Nursery

Thank you to everyone at Woodlands for making nursery such a fun experience and giving us peace of mind that he is well taken care of. Woodlands will be tough to replace.

Emmie & Robyn’s Mum and Dad – Hale Nursery

Both Emmie and Robyn have loved their time with you and Matthew and I have had every confidence that it has been the perfect place for them during their early years. Your team have provided a wonderful, nurturing environment in which both my girls have grown in confidence and spirit.

Lukas’s Mum – Nantwich Nursery

I am so sad that my son’s time at Elmscot Nantwich has come to an end. He has been attending Elmscot for the past two and a half years and I don’t have a negative word to say about it! The management, deputy and staff are all amazing and good at what they do.

My son developed his social and educational skills in leaps and bounds during his time here, and I couldn’t recommend it enough. I will 100% be registering my youngest for this nursery when the time comes.

A special thanks has to go to Emma, Laura, Carolyn and Leann for making Lukas’ time with you so special, and thank you to all of the staff for being so welcoming and supportive

Oliver’s Mum – Nantwich Nursery

Thank you to everyone involved in looking after Oliver, me and his dad are thrilled at the progress he’s shown in such a few weeks of being there! He’s eating whole foods better. Drinking cows milk and picking up on words! His new favourite is “oh dear” and “hiya” .. followed with “mummy” which I’ve been waiting for, for so long!

I love that we get informed of what they’ve done throughout the day and we couldn’t have picked a better nursery!

We really feel you go above and beyond at Elmscot. Worth travelling from Crewe before work! Thank you

Isaac’s Mum – Nantwich Nursery

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone at Nantwich for looking after Isaac since he started in 2015! He has grown so so much and thank you for the graduation last week it was lovely, me and my mum really loved it.  Isaac will miss you all so so much thank you again xx

Austin’s Mum and Dad – Hale Nursery

We would like to say a huge thank you to all the staff at Hale and especially Hayley, Alex and Lauren who have been his key workers from when he joined in the Rabbit room through to the Squirrel room where he is now. He has loved every day and has developed so much. We are incredibly grateful for the education, support and care you have given Austin over the last few years.

Austin is moving onto a new setting at the school he will be going to and we hope he will be as happy there as he has been at Hale.

Thanks again,
Claire & Rob Wilde.

Max’s Mum and Dad – Nantwich Nursery

Hi Carolyn, Leann and the rest of the Elmscot team.

Just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for yesterday’s graduation, it was such a lovely afternoon and was lovely to see Max so happy and proud of where he is and enjoying himself! Thank you for his book too it was read straight away when home. We left yesterday in a hurry so felt terrible I hadn’t thanked you properly!

Suzanne, John and Max x

James and Katie’s Mum – Broussa Nursery

I really want to pass on my thanks and praise for Yvonne who has joined the Badger Team recently. She is an absolutely amazing addition to the already brilliant team! She quietly and calmly gets James talking and interested in something great right from the start of the day. He’s so happy going in and clearly has a fabulous time all day. She’s such a professional in all her mannerisms too whilst being warm and friendly – the exact kind of person a parent is happy to leave their child with, and the kind of member of staff I’m sure you and the Elmscot team are always looking for.

As you know, I cannot praise the whole Broussa team enough. Both James and Katie adore coming to nursery and I am so confident with all the staff for the outstanding care you all provide.

Maddison’s Mum – Woodlands Nursery

Maddison has truly had an amazing time at Woodlands and has come on leaps and bounds. We are both going to miss everyone and everything about Woodlands, it is a great nursery and the staff are a credit to the company.
All the staff in Owls have been amazing, so welcoming, easy to talk to, professional and you can tell they absolutely love the children they care for. Maddison is going to miss them all so much it will be a sad day when she has to go.

Thank you so much for everything.


Harry’s Mum – Hale Day Nursery

Just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you both and all the team, Harry has grown to be a very kind and thoughtful little boy and I certainly cannot take all the credit! Your staff are a huge asset in the way they nurture and care for the children. Harry will be very sad to leave – tissues at the ready!

The Evans Family – Woodlands Nursery

We cannot thank you enough for giving our little boy the best possible start. Your tireless attention, unwavering care and genuine love shown will never be forgotten. We really will miss you. You have a very special team and we thank all of you from the bottom of our hearts.

Otto Brumby’s Mum – Elmscot Nursery

Otto has settled well into the Oak room, really well and he looks forward to coming into nursery in the morning.  We are pleased to see that he has mate lots of new friends and some lovely relationships with the staff (who are amazing!) we have noticed a huge difference in his development most notably his speech, vocabulary and independence.



Noelle Petty – Broussa Nursery

My son, Jasper, has been attending Broussa for almost 2 years and is now in the Owls room (the big boy room!). He absolutely adores all of the teachers in the room and comes home talking about them all as though they are his second family. They are all such warm and caring people and I couldn’t ask for a better bunch of people to care for my son when he’s not with me. In particular I would just like to say a massive, massive thank you to Amy O’Toole and Sophie Kirkland for going above and beyond the call of duty to give Jasper some extra one on one help with toilet training which he currently struggling with. Both Sophie and Amy have been really creative with their ideas to help with this. Sophie made him and some of the other children a rocket sticker chart to track their toilet successes! And recently Amy made him his very own super hero laminated sticker chart as a way to encourage him to use the toilet (and even made a second one for us to take home because it was such a success at nursery). She knows how much he loved super heros and cleverly tapped into that. I feel like Amy, Sophie and the other girls in the Owl room genuiely care about his development and are being so proactive to help us get him through this difficult stage. Amy just knows what works with Jasper and how to get through to him/encourage him. He has definitely progressed these past 2 weeks and that is without doubt down to the extra attention he has received from Amy recently. It is hard to put into words what that means to me as a parent. Thank you for everything.

Catherine Connaughton – Broussa Nursery

Sarah has been Katie’s constant link every day since Katie started… I can’t remember any days when Sarah isn’t there for our drop off and again when we pick Katie up. She’s just wonderful!!! I would also like to send on my thanks to Rebecca also in Rabbits who is the loveliest person and her care and love for the children radiates out of her.

For James in Badgers I cannot sing Emma’s praises highly enough. She has taken him under her wing (along with Ala and Julie of course) and has a natural connection with him. I know he’s been a little more reserved when at nursery and a little shy, but Emma seems to get his confidence up and I can see his little face light up when she is there in the morning – which obviously is the time when he would be a little more reserved and quiet.

Please feel free to pass on my thanks to all the staff but especially those mentioned above as they go out of their way, every single day, to make my 2 little ones feel happy and secure and I trust them and the whole of your nursery, implicitly with my 2 most previous things in the world! They do the most excellent job and deserve every praise!!!



Claire Anderson – Hale Day Nursery

I just wanted to say how pleased I am with how well Theo has been looked after in Rabbit Room. He has come on so much in terms of eating and joining in, in such a short time. It is very clear that his needs are of primary concern and I am very thankful to Becky, Jenny and Rachel for all they do for him. I’m sure there are many other people who are great with him, it’s just these are the people I see looking after him the most.

Max has also settled in and is very happy in Squirrel room. His key worker Charlotte is lovely and I am always confident Nancy is on top of everything!

I just wanted to let you know what a great job your team are doing and what a great team of staff you have.


Lynne Hampton, Elmscot Day Nursery

I just wanted to express my appreciation to all of the team in Oak room.

We were worried at the start of term about how our son would settle and make the transition into the new room as this is something that he has struggled with in the past.

We couldn’t be happier with the care and support that he has received. All of the team have worked so hard to make him feel a very welcome new member of the room. The fact that he already knew 2 of the key workers made a HUGE difference and we are grateful to Elmscot for providing this.

He is loving every second of pre school life and we know that he is developing all of the essential Early skills to support him as he moves towards full time school.

Thanks to everyone involved. We really appreciate all of your support and time.

Hale Day Nursery

I just wanted to say thank you for how sensitively you’ve handled the move from Squirrels to Badgers. The staff in both rooms have done a brilliant job in helping the transition. William isn’t very keen on change (bit like his mum!) but we have had two morning drop offs without any upset – which I really was not expecting! It’s early days, and we are likely to have a little set back due to being away on holiday, but fingers crossed it continues!

Hale Day Nursery

To all the wonderful ladies of Hale,
We can’t thank you enough for all the love, patience & knowledge you have given Bradley over the past 3 ½ years.
He has grown into a gentle, kind, caring, inquisitive and confident little man that we could not be more proud of, and in a large part that is down to all of you that have touched his life. The very lovely Owl ladies have done an amazing job preparing Bradley for ‘Big School’ and we are just in owe of you and what you achieve with the kids and how much of yourselves you give in doing so – not least of all Bradley’s beloved Sophie who he will miss immensely.
Leaving your baby at nursery is a huge leap of faith, you are leaving the most precious part of you with people who are effectively strangers. You can and do, of course, do your homework, reading OFSTED reports, getting recommendations, visiting dozens of nurseries!

However, you never know for definite if your little person will be cared for enough or in the right way. I once heard having kids described as ‘wearing your heart outside your body’ and it is so accurate!
We could not have been more fortunate with the amazing, wonderful, caring people who have looked after Bradley for over the years. Thank you to you all for everything!!
Much love,
Donna & Steve.

Brereton Family Woodlands Day Nursery

Thank you so much for an incredible 4 years and all the valuable time you have ploughed into Faye’s experience. She has enjoyed every minute of her time with you all and I know she will miss you terribly. The relationships she has formed with you ladies have meant the world to all of us and you are an absolute credit to Woodlands. Keep doing what you’re doing, you are literally the dream team!

Devine Family Woodlands Day Nursery

Just a little note to say thank you so much for all of your help and support. Teddy has loved being a hedgehog and has come on so much since being in your room. I also want to say a massive thank you for all of your support with TEDS, Physio and all the additional support that Teddy has needed, Marina you have been a great help and have made things a lot easier for me and Teddy.

Broussa Day Nursery- Rabbits & Sarah Mairs

Hi Broussa Team

A quick note to let you know how happy I have been and how grateful I am for the support and care provided to Fraser during his time in Rabbits. He has been so happy during his nursery time to date which has made my return to work a much easier / enjoyable experience.

I would especially like to share my appreciation towards Fraser’s key worker, Sarah Mairs. Fraser has bonded with Sarah from the start and I have seen this bond develop during his time with Sarah. He has grown and flourished under Sarah’s care and has really come into his own. I have been amazed at Sarah’s commitment – she is always there for drop offs (at 7:30am) and is also there at pickups (around 5:30pm) and is able to tell me all about Fraser’s day.

Not only does Fraser adore Sarah, but Chloe does too and she often talks about Sarah to Fraser and I. It has been great to see how the Rabbit and Owls team have worked together to facilitate Chloe and Fraser spending time together in the nursery setting. This truly has been another stand out feature of Broussa day nursery.

Thank you to Broussa for introducing Fraser, Chloe and I to Sarah, a remarkable member of staff and a credit to the nursery.

Kind regards

Franklin Family- Broussa Day Nursery

I just wanted to say what a fab job Francesca, Nicola and the rest of the team are doing in Jemima’s room (Squirrel Room). The wall displays are fab and engaging, they always keep us up to date with what’s going on and Jemima has settled brilliantly. It’s lovely to see a team work so well together – they clearly enjoy their jobs!

Thanks for all your hard work,


Nicky Baines

We have been delighted to have Amy in the Owl Room at Broussa assigned to be our daughter Imogen’s key worker. Imogen had a tough start to life so has a bit of catching up to do and it has been such a comfort to see her working so well with Amy. She has taken time to really understand Imogen’s interests and has used that to support her in making fantastic progress with her speech and general communication skills. Imogen’s confidence and ability to join in with all the activities in the room is growing thanks to Amy and we are very grateful for all she and the rest of the team do to support Imogen at nursery and help get her prepared for going to school.

Barr/Brooke Family Woodlands Day Nursery

Thank you so much for having looked after my most precious thing for the best part of 3 years. When we moved her at 9 months, we knew this was the place for her- Juliet was happy, always excited to come, learnt new things everyday and develop into a polite, sociable and confident little person. I cannot thank you all enough for this and for being like a second family to her.

Wilding Family Woodlands Day Nursery

To all the wonderful team of people who have worked with my son for the past 3 1/2 years. We can’t thank you enough for helping our little boy grow into a happy confident, happy child. He has loved his time at Woodlands and its given him an excellent start in life.

Thanks so much for all you are doing in for Sophia in Oak Room, we feel she is really flourishing and becoming increasingly independent.

Dylan Heaton’s Mum & Dad – Elmscot Day Nursery

We are so pleased with the progress Seth has made this year. He loves his time in Oak room and is very enthusiastic about the extra sessions (Stretch’n’Grow/Forest School/Mr Ross) that you plan and facilitate. We feel that all the work you have done has prepared him fully for school, which was compounded by the fact that he ran in freely and excitedly to his ‘taster’ sessions this week. We really are very grateful for this.

Seth will miss you all, as will we!

Thanks again for everything

Thank you so much for making William’s pre-school experience in Owls such a special and memorable one. William has enjoyed every minute of it.

It’s amazing as parents to look back at the 13 month old William that started at Hale Day Nursery and see how much he’s grown. Everyone at Hale has contributed to this and we will not forget you – we’ll be back soon with #2.

Thank you for making us feel part of the Hale family!

Byrne Family Woodlands Day Nursery

Leo has had such a lovely time in your care and we will really miss bringing him here. He has made such good friends with the children and close bonds with the staff we cant thank you enough for how happy we are with the care he has received.
After our eldest went through a different nursery system, we were skeptical about how good a private nursery really could be, but you have excelled our expectations. We always feel like Leos best interest are always taken into consideration and this is why he has enjoyed this time with you so much. Thank You!

Evans Family – Woodlands Day Nursery

Thank you so much for taking such wonderful care of our little boy. He has really grown and developed as a little person whilst being in the Hedgehog Room. We will miss you.

Demetri & Milly Stephani – Elmscot Day Nursery


I just wanted to email you and tell you how impressed Demetri and I were with Lucas’ parents evening last night. Jenny was extremely thorough, helpful and polite. Our appointment was much longer than expected however Jenny was genuinely happy to stay and give more of her time, to ensure that we had been given all the information about Lucas’ achievements. We feel that Lucas has flourished working under Jenny’s wing and also the rest of the team. We are looking forward to another great year once he moves to Oak.

“Firstly, me and my wife  would like to say a big thank you to your team. We are very pleased about how well our son settled in the nursery, he simply adores the nursery. We would like to thank all members of the staff and his key worker Leah as well especially for making this possible.

Me and my wife are both doctors working in public service and currently under severe pressure due to increased demand as you may have gathered from press recently. Hence a great child care is very important for us to make our job doable, your expertise with him has helped us make this possible.

I once again like to thank all your staff for your excellent care offered”

Declan has recently moved into the Hedgehog room at Woodlands and I cannot express my delight with his progress so far. He settled in really well and all the staff are absolutely fantastic! If only you could see him on Tuesday and Wednesday before we set off to nursery, he is eager to get there. Thank you all so much once again for helping him settle in and with his development.
