Alice and Eleftherios – Chester Nursery

Nikki has been amazing with our daughter since she started her journey in the nursery back in July. She has made her feel comfortable and loved since the first difficult transition period and we couldn’t have felt more happy and safe in leaving our little one in someone else’s hands.

Caitlin who has joined just recently has been absolutely amazing, our daughter clearly loves her and we see she is so passionate and careful, and very communicative with us, which makes us feel involved even if we are not there to enjoy the lovely little moments.


Louise – Broussa Nursery

I’ve been meaning to write a quick note for some time now to thank you for the fantastic job I feel you are all doing for our children at this time!

Everyday when we drop off and collect Sebby al the staff at Broussa are so warm and friendly and helpful. Gemma and Jess in the rabbit room are wonderful and we feel lucky that Sebby is in there with them.

It’s not the easiest of circumstances at the moment but the staff are never anything less than 100% enthusiastic and caring even at 6pm when we are arriving to you.

Thanks once again


Noelle – Broussa Nursery

This honestly feels like the end of an era and I’m so sad Fraser is leaving, he is doing so well at the moment and I know a big part of that is because of the care he is getting from everyone at the nursery. He is so comfortable and relaxed walking in everyday and comes running out every night with a big smile on his face. I have been coming to the nursery every day for the past 5 years and have had such a positive experience throughout this whole time.

Both of my boys have been so lucky to have the best key workers throughout. When Annette and Rebecca moved to the nursery it only became even more of an approachable, loving, caring and nurturing environment. I have felt like I have got to know you all so well and you just feel like extended family to Fraser and I. I just want to take this opportunity to thank you so much for looking after both of my boys so well over these past 5 years and giving me lots of support and advice during that time. I will miss you all lots.


Adam – Poppies Nursery

We’ve had two children attend poppies over the last five years with another due to start soon. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Poppies to anyone.
The facilities are excellent and the learning and activities are developing all the time. The recent road safety awareness week is an example of this – the  children brought in scooters and bikes and were taught what to do around the roadside. It was absolutely brilliant and the message has really stuck with our son.
We have noticed a significant improvement in our son since the return after lockdown and thanks must go to specific staff such as Claire, who has been instrumental in his development.

Stephanie – Poppies Nursery

What a fantastic nursery. After being in lockdown and my 7-month-old was only used to seeing me and her daddy for the past 3 months we were extremely nervous about our little girl going to nursery. Poppies nursery have been great with us and our little girl.
First and lasting impressions are clean, with lots of sensory/learning activities and a nutritional menu. We had been to view numerous nurseries before we went to Poppies and the biggest difference was not a jumperoo or ball pit in sight which was a huge selling point for us knowing she would not be put to one side.
On her first day, I was a nervous wreck, the team in the sunshine room sensed my feelings, rang me and kept me up-+to-date throughout the day. My little girl is coming on so much and is always happy.
We can not thank Poppies enough for all they are doing for our daughter’s development. Would highly recommend!

Sarah – Poppies Nursery

Our daughter Nancy has been at Poppies since turning one, and absolutely loves it. She has plenty of time outdoors, the outdoor play area is a great size with lots to do, and she gets involved in a range of activities – baking bread, messy play, crafts.
The staff have been so encouraging and caring, she settled so well and now gets her bag and coat to head there in the mornings. Her routine and all her needs are met and surpassed, and we have a great relationship with her key worker and all the staff.
Well done Poppies, we have already recommended to others parents.

Elmscot Broussa Parent

I am thrilled to have found this nursery for my child.  The care and attention they give her is outstanding.  She derives great benefit from attending and this is reflected in her development.  The team at the nursery showed great patience during our original settling in and again when re-commencing following the Covid closure period.  I know my child is in safe hands with the highly professional team who care for her.

Thank you to everyone – it means so much to me that you care so much!


Kathryn – Elmscot Altrincham Nursery

After a wonderful 3 years that Jack had at Elmscot, there’s nowhere else we would rather send our new baby!


Elmscot Broussa Parent

Our children have come on so much in the last year and it’s in no small part down to their time with you all and we’re very grateful for that and the fact that we feel they are ready for school. They have loved their time with you all and who could ask for more than that. As you know, from their first meeting, Isaac has loved Rebecca and he will be especially sorry to say goodbye!

Elmscot Broussa Parent

Broussa Day Nursery has provided both my children with a warm, nurturing environment where they feel confident to explore, make relationships and enjoy their activities. Since they started, last Summer Annette and Rebecca have welcomed them and got to know their individual personalities very well.

Recently William and Charlie spent some time at Hale Day Nursery due to the Covid lockdown. They were fully supported with this transition and settled well due to the trust that they have in their key workers. At a time when everything was uncertain, communication with parents was excellent and, by working in partnership, the children managed the change very well.

When the time came to return to Broussa, the boys were equally happy to see familiar faces again. Despite this having been a particularly challenging time, the committed members of staff, have ensured not only that health and safety is maintained with a comprehensive risk assessment that has been shared with parents, but also that the children’s progress remains prioritised.

William has come home, excited to talk about rhyming words and initial sounds. He is proud to start forming letters and interested in words and signs that he sees in the environment. He even received a thank you letter from Buckingham Palace, when his card for the Queen had been posted by a member of staff in Owl Room.

Preparation for school has been included in the children’s learning with ideas for parents to be working on at home, uniform days, PE week and the chance to say goodbye to their friends during a wonderful graduation ceremony. This has meant that William is excited to start school and has asked lots of questions about the classroom, his uniform and which friends will go with him. Charlie’s language also continues to develop with more complex vocabulary, “it’s the owl first, not the reindeer”. He readily engages in pretend play and is developing his understanding of his feelings, using words such as sad, tired and hungry. Charlie is also starting to communicate when, “William not sharing”.

Myself and my husband could not be happier with the provision provided by Broussa and would recommend it to anyone looking for a nursery place. We are very grateful to all the members of staff for their continued support and exceptional hard work.”

Elmscot Broussa Parent

We love Broussa and would recommend it to anyone.

We love the staff (we feel like they treat our girls as their own) and like the consistency we get from staff being there long term.  Special shout out to Jen Bamber as she’s totally brilliant, Martha loves her, and Yvonne – who whilst Iris was in Badgers – I’m sure was her favourite person.

Communication during lockdown was brilliant, we really appreciated no fees being charged as we know some other nurseries didn’t take this stance, and by the time the girls started back, we felt completely confident you had the process under control and that the environment would be safe. There is lots of effort put into extra-curricular activities like graduation and the nativity – Iris absolutely loved this particularly and still talks about it now!”


Natalie – Elmscot Woodlands Nursery

I cant believe my sons time at Woodlands has come to an end – Where have the last 2 years gone? I’m not sure I can put into words… but Thank you! He has simply loved coming to nursery each week and has gained so much from it, he has done things he would never of dreamed of – thank you for challenging him and encouraging him along the way.

From my perspective, thank you for caring for him and making him feel safe and loved, when I wasn’t around. It’s been easy leaving him in such kind and caring hands each day.

Keep doing what you’re doing – I would recommend Woodlands to any parents in a heartbeat.

Elmscot Woodlands Nursery Parent

To the Wonderful team at Woodlands spearheaded by Danielle, we would like to offer our sincere gratitude for the wonderful care you invested in our precious daughter. Your selfless hardwork and dedication has provided her with a wonderful environment and platform to blossom into a happy and confident young madam.

She will always carry the values and qualities nurtured via play and interaction at Woodlands, as she embarks upon a new chapter in her developmental journey – her progress will be testament to the foundations laid at Woodlands.

Elmscot Broussa Parent

The Broussa Team are absolutely fantastic. Every single member of staff always has a smile on their face. There is a feeling of warmth and joy across the nursery and this is exactly the environment I want my children to be cared for.

My boys love the nursery and that is a true reflection on how it is managed and operates.

I would always recommend Broussa to others.

Elmscot Hale Parent

Isabelle had struggled settling in and Bianca has gone above and beyond to make sure she’s happy and settled.

She’s always so friendly and really thorough with handovers. She’s definitely one of the best keyworkers I’ve experienced (along with Natalie in squirrels when my Oliver was there) and I’m so glad she is Isabelle’s keyworker.

She’s doing amazing job!

Ottie – Elmscot Hale Nursery

We are very grateful for all the care and attention that has been given to our three children over the last few years and I know they will miss lots of the staff that have helped their development over time and have given them safety and comfort.  We are especially grateful for the time during lockdown where consistency of coming to nursery was so key for them and a tricky time for us all. I will also miss lots of the staff who I’ve enjoyed interacting with over the last few years too. It’s been a big part of our life!

Many thanks and all the best


Anna – Elmscot Broussa Nursery

Our daughter has been attending Broussa from being 9 months and we are only moving due to a house move. She was extremely unsettled at first, however the staff all worked very hard to make sure she was happy and comfortable when we left her. Since moving to the toddler room the change in her has been amazing. Her development in the space of 6 months has been wonderful and I do think that has a lot to do with the interaction and great activities the staff plan for the children.
We have had a few issues with regards to our house move, and the nursery have been more than supportive, which really has gone a long way in helping us as a family. We are really sad to be saying goodbye.

Elizabeth – Elmscot Altrincham Nursery

We approached Elmscot at the very last minute for a place for our 9-month-old. The manager was so accommodating and pulled out all the stops to help. The nursery is full of enthusiasm and energy and it is clear that every member of the team takes such pride in their roles. We were very impressed with the wide range of activities on offer, the space in the baby rooms (there’s two), the focus on the outdoors and how warm and friendly the staff were. Our daughter has only been at Elmscot for a week but she already seems settled and excited to arrive in the morning. The nursery app used by Elmscot to track development is better than some alternatives we’ve seen and the welcome material and paperwork for a new starter is really thorough. We’ve also been very impressed with the level of communication and feedback we have from the team in our daughter’s room. The return to work process has been much easier for us knowing our daughter is at Elmscot and will be having a fun-filled day.

Excellent day nursery, my little girl enjoyed going every day, friendly staff and fantastic management. Children are the heart of everything.

Natalie – Elmscot Nantwich Nursery

Elmscot is a great nursery setting that I would strongly recommend to friends and family. The staff are really friendly. Since my son has started nursery he has gained confidence when interacting with other children. I think this is largely down to the encouragement with staff and key workers and the friendly atmosphere throughout.

Helen – Elmscot Chester Nursery

I always have a cheery welcome at the nursery, the staff are so friendly, polite, obviously well trained and have a wonderful relationship with the children relating to their needs and the beginning of their education. My grandson has developed well, his speech is coming along which helps with recognition and communication. His skills in using his hands with the artwork he does, role-playing games, singing and dancing have definitely increased due to his day at the nursery.
The nursery is very clean, (shoes off in the baby room), newly renovated, and money has been spent on the premises, obviously well-planned to which rooms needed work doing. I love to see these Victorian schools in full use, history is very important to keep and cherish.
Parking outside is great for drop off and pick up and there is a locked shed near the door where you can put your pushchair for the day if you are walking to and from the nursery.

Sarah – Elmscot Chester Nursery

My child has attended the nursery since he was seven months old, my daughter is now also attending. My son loves going and has made lots of friends. He enjoys the different ranges of activities, such as forest school and the class visits they have. The nursery is a very clean and safe environment for the children and learning is promoted through a variety of techniques, so they don’t realise they are learning as they think they are playing.

Jenny – Elmscot Broussa Nursery

Broussa is an amazing nursery, my son has been there since he was one (and is nearly four). He has always been really well cared for and very happy. It’s a nurturing environment, the staff and management are great and extremely approachable. The nursery has really inspired my son’s learning through songs, games, activities, exercise, all sorts of different activities. Would highly recommend the nursery to anyone.

Amanda – Elmscot Woodlands Nursery

Myself and my son’s dad couldn’t speak highly enough of this nursery and their staff. They are so friendly, interested, caring and really approachable.
They do so many great activities with the kids and my son really enjoys his nursery days.
They care a lot and give really great feedback for the parents to see what their child has been up to in the day.
They also have an app where the parents can upload what their child has been doing and they can do the same so the parents can see what their child has been up to at nursery. We personally find this invaluable so we can keep up with the things he’s enjoying (some of which we would never have thought of) and it helps with his development.
They also have a great outdoor garden where they grow their own veggies and have play equipment for all ages.
We really couldn’t recommend highly enough. Our son is full of smiles when he arrives and all of the staff always make him feel welcome and seem really happy to see him.

Kerrie – Elmscot Nantwich Nursery

Everyone at Elmscot is so friendly, loving and helpful.
They are very hands-on, he comes home every night asking to go back every night – and asking to go stay with certain staff.
They have helped him learn and develop so much since he started two years ago.
Staff are helpful if you have any questions, and was very helpful during increasing/decreasing his days as needed.
My son is given so much attention, they listen, play and take time to understand him; as he struggles with his sentences still. The staff are always smiling, and the setting is always clean, uncluttered, in a safe location and providing delicious meals.
We commute every morning, even when I work in my hometown; just to ensure he goes to the best standard nursery around.

Julia – Elmscot Chester Nursery

My son has been attending Elmscot since he was 9-months-old. He is now nearly two. He loves it! He feels safe, loves the team and has heaps of fun. The team are brilliant, very kind patient and willing to go that extra mile.
The facilities have recently been refurbished, and the team continue to maintain the building to a high standard. The nursery is so clean.
Our son is rarely ill, and I’m sure it’s because the nursery is so clean.
The outdoor space is considerably large for an inner-city setting.
The children go outside every day, if not twice a day. The food is lovely, fresh and locally sourced. The menu is varied and continually changed with very little repetition. Nappies/pampers changed frequently. Our son is cared for in nursery as much as we would care for him at home. The management and finance team are always at the end of the phone. Location is convenient for the train station or working in and out of town.

Lacy – Happitots Nursery

My son has attended Happitots for almost two years now and he couldn’t be happier there. From the start, it has been a very loving and nurturing environment. There is consistency with the staff who take care of him, they know him really well and as parents we have a great relationship with them too. I feel like they really care about him and his development and communicate well with us as parents. On a daily basis they do a wide variety of fun and educational activities which are helping him to achieve his full potential and preparing him well for school. We really appreciate how they look after him, its a great environment and highly recommend this nursery.

Elmscot Altrincham Nursery Parent

Our girl started at Elmscot when she was 9 months old which was very daunting as parents…less so it seems for her as she absolutely loves it there! She had the best keyworker and didn’t have a chance to miss us with the wide range of activities on offer. She also established her reputation for eating all the food but when it’s that good, why wouldn’t you?

She’s now been at Elmscot for almost 2 years and her development has been fantastic. We are constantly impressed with the things she can do and she comes home chatting away about staff and friends alike. She’s certainly not behind on any aspect and I’m assured she’s having the best start in life.

Even though she spends most of her time there, she still has her own personality which is encouraged and something I love about Elmscot. It takes us so long to leave as we talk to all staff on the way out: they all know her and take the time to stop. It’s a very personal feel which when leaving your most precious thing is how you want it

Rebecca – Elmscot Altrincham Nursery

Our child loves her time at Elmscot. The staff are always warm and engaging and make our child feel safe and nurtured. They challenge, when appropriate, to move her learning forward but always start with her interests and what will capture her. She has become a resilient and independent learner and we couldn’t be happier with her progress.

Melanie – Happitots Nursery

My daughter has been happily attending Happitots for over 3 years. She has formed such a bond with all the staff and children and are all one big family. Cannot praise this nursery enough for turning my shy little girl into a confident happy girl. It’s in the name…all the kids are extremely happy tots. Will definitely be sending my new baby there.

Noelle – Elmscot Broussa Nursery

I have wanted to write a review for some time now just to express how grateful I am to all the nursery staff at Broussa that care for my little boy while I am at work.
The staff are all a reflection of the nursery manager, kind, caring, nurturing and most importantly fun. They genuinely feel like extended family and they have created a second home for my son to grow and develop. They truly care about him and about helping to develop his little mind. My son’s key worker has such a special gift with children. She just knows how to make the kids feel calm, safe and loved. That is massively important to me. Not only do the staff do a great job at caring and developing my son but they are always there to talk through any issues I may be having with him and to give advice. The managers are all very present and are around all the time in all the rooms – they know all the children and parents. It feels like a family of very well trained staff that all genuinely care.

Elmscot Altrincham Nursery Parent

My daughter loves her nursery days. I have complete confidence in the staff who care for her who are kind, well presented and passionate about developing and encouraging the children. If you ever have a query, these are answered swiftly. I am very happy with Elmscot, so much so, my second child has been registered to attend when I return to work. I would highly recommend Elmscot to anyone.

Kathryn – Elmscot Altrincham Nursery

Thank you for the amazing sleep workshop you organised last week. It was really well run, and has really helped us understand sleep and why it doesn’t always happen! We have already made small changes which have helped. A brilliant offering by Elmscot! Thank you!

Sarah – Elmscot Altrincham Nursery

Elmscot Altrincham is a fabulous nursery. Both of our girls are there 3 days a week and get excited about their “nursery days”. Not only is it a first-class facility in terms of food, learning and physical space (they have an amazing garden!) but the management and team there are second to none. They genuinely love working with children and that shows in everything they do.
Whilst pregnant with my first, we were recommended Elmscot but knowing I had to eventually leave my precious bundle was daunting. But I had to go back to work so finding somewhere with my extremely high standards was crucial. I needn’t have worried because after our tour, nearly 5 years ago now, we fell in love with the place and their team. Our settle sessions were calm and happy and two babies later, we are extremely happy at Elmscot. They care for our children so well, our girls love them too!
They have great extras like Forest School and yoga which the girls love too.
Go for a visit!

Rachael – Elmscot Chester Nursery

Elmscot Day Nursery & Nursery School Chester has been a wonderful setting for the development of my daughter. She has been given the opportunity to explore and learn in the way that suits her personality, for example, the staff ensure she has plenty of opportunities for sensory, messy play because she loves it! She enjoys water play and themed messy play – the staff try to ensure she has the opportunity to do this most days she is at nursery.
The staff are warm and I have had no concerns leaving my daughter in their care. She happily starts around 8am, waving her Dad off and jumping straight in to play with her friends. Then when she is collected she is always smiling and enjoys inviting us into the nursery setting – she is always content, at ease and comfortable with all the staff in her room.

Manou – Elmscot Hale Nursery

There was a Nativity show arranged by the nursery at the Church in Hale village on Tuesday 10th December. What a show! It was excellent. It was amazing to see all four-year-old kids remembering all of their words and actions to the songs. They presented in their costume in front of all the parents. It was another testimony on the dedication that the staff at Hale Day Nursery & Nursery School had put time and effort to teach, practice and carry out numerous rehearsals to achieve that degree of success.
I thank all at the nursery but in particular all of those at the Owl room. Well done all!

Farha – Elmscot Broussa Nursery

I have really been pleased with the standards, facilities and care by the staff towards the child. My daughter really started enjoying the nursery but as I am expecting my second child in 3 weeks time we will be going away for a while that’s the reason I am taking her out of nursery but once back I will be enrolling her straight away.
The staff are really friendly and the key person gives a daily sheet letting you know about their day in nursery. The app is great. Staff are really friendly and approachable.

Michelle – Elmscot Altrincham Nursery

Our little boy started at Elmscot in September 2019 and has absolutely thrived. He settled very quickly thanks to the care and attention he receives from all of the staff. It has been reassuring to know that even when he has been upset, he can be easily calmed because he has developed great relationships in Willow Room. There are a great range of activities, which have brought on his development. There is a great variety of healthy meals on the menu too. I would recommend Elmscot without hesitation

Gennaro – Elmscot Hale Nursery

We have been so impressed with the level of care given to both our daughters during their time at Hale. The staff are knowledgeable and go the extra mile to ensure our children are happy and secure. They have both grown in confidence each year, our youngest is summer born but thanks to the hard-working, attentive staff in preschool, we are more than confident that she is on the right track to join reception next year.
The outdoor provision is particularly impressive and we love the forest school sessions and other activities on offer.

Alisha – Elmscot Hale Nursery

My daughter has very recently started attending nursery here and is in the Owl room. Every morning we are greeted by smiley welcoming faces and my daughter has a cuddle with her key worker upon arrival as she is always reluctant to walk into her room. Staff take the time to ask if there’s anything they need to know about my daughter during drop off which I find very attentive. Occasionally I’ll ring the nursery during the day and I am always reassured that she is happy and participating in the day to day learning and activities provided. At the end of the day when I go to collect my daughter, I always walk in to find her extremely happy and engaged in activities or conversations with her peers and staff members.
The nursery have been great in catering to my daughter’s dietary needs. She has always loved yoga and participates in this every Thursday. I receive detailed observations twice a month and feedback at the end of the day is very informative. It’s just a really lovely nursery.

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.


Zowya – Elmscot Woodlands Nursery

My daughter started at Woodlands at eleven months old. It was a journey that was difficult for both my daughter and myself to commence. Leaving a child is never an easy thing to do but the girls who so tenderly cared for my daughter made it easy. She transitioned from the Rabbits to the Hedgehogs smoothly. The Hedgehog ladies were fantastic and have treated me like family. They have supported not only my daughter but my family and myself through a very traumatic loss journey. I will forever be indebted to the ladies who looked after my child when I physically couldn’t and made sure that my daughter was none the wiser about the loss and for that reason alone I would recommend this nursery to everyone. The level of care, kindness, empathy and support along with an excellent learning environment for the children that they collectively provide as a unit makes them truly outstanding.

Woodlands is a fantastic nursery. Our daughter started in 2017 and has grown in confidence significantly, largely thanks to the amazing care provided by the team. The nursery provides a homely feel and has a fantastic outdoor space, which the children spend a significant amount of time in exploring, playing and having fun. In addition to the fantastic care provided on a daily basis, the team also put on a variety of trips and events from forest school to workshops for parents. Would highly recommend.

I honestly cannot speak highly enough of Broussa and all the team. My daughter is so happy there and has been from day one. She has loved every room and all the staff. The range of activities is fantastic and I love the fact that they get them all out in the garden as often as possible. I have found everyone to be very supportive during a recent spell of ill health and genuinely feel like the staff are friends of mine. I have also had a lot of support with things like getting rid of dummies and potty training. It has certainly felt like a team effort! The setting is fantastic and the food is great. Tapestry is a brilliant tool that the nursery use to share updates about your child and parents can upload photos and videos too which is really nice. The staff are approachable and professional. My daughter has some health issues and this has been handled brilliantly by everyone at Broussa. We love it and more importantly, our daughter loves it!

My son started attending in February 2019 and he loves it too. The staff are very welcoming and the management team listens to what parents have to say and takes their feedback on board. Their outdoor play area is amazing and the children are spoiled with that space. I would highly recommend Woodlands Day Nursery to anyone looking for nurseries for their children.

We moved our daughter to Woodlands in September. We can’t thank the staff enough for the outstanding care they have given her since she has arrived. I was very anxious about moving nurseries as she struggles in new situations, however, I haven’t regretted our decision once. The staff have completely changed our nursery experience and I’m very grateful for the support they have given our daughter and myself since her move.

Shaun – Elmscot Hale Nursery

My son has been attending Elmscot Hale Day Nursery since he was 9 months old, he loves going and we’re delighted with his progress since attending and we trust the team 100% with his care. His dedicated key worker greets us every morning with a smile and has formed a brilliant genuine bond with him. He has different activities and classes planned and they’re always special events. There is a large play area outside also which includes their own animals which live at the nursery. I’m jealous of the menu he gets served from the on-site kitchen, it always smells lovely when I walk past. We’re provided a summary sheet every time we pick him up and we also get in-depth reports through the online parent system which includes a written piece by his key worker with photos of what our son has been up to. There are also development checks against how he is progressing.
I would, without a doubt, recommend this nursery and we’re very happy with our choice, as is our son!

Amy – Elmscot Broussa Nursery

Both my children have attended Broussa nursery since January 2016 and we have been very impressed with the outstanding care received.
Not only does Broussa offer fantastic facilities and high levels of care across all ages but the staff are always so supportive and caring towards the children. They provide tailored support for the child and ensure that there is continual communication between the nursery and the parents.
The nursery provides lots of extracurricular activities which enables a varied and innovative environment for the children and I have seen both my children thrive and develop whilst attending.
The staff are friendly, approachable and you can feel that the interest of the children is at the heart of the nursery.

Becky – Elmscot Broussa Nursery

I can’t recommend this nursery enough. I have two children with a small age gap and nothing is ever too much trouble from everyone. All the staff know who both my kids are even though they aren’t necessarily in their room yet. I feel really comfortable leaving my children here and they’ve both developed loads since starting. Thank you Broussa.

Natalie – Elmscot Altrincham Nursery

We looked around many nurseries in the area and on first viewing, I immediately got a great feeling about Elmscot Altrincham. The staff are lovely and provide amazing care for the children. The communication from management is fantastic and parents are kept fully up to speed with everything that is going on. The hand over on collection is great and the staff always give a full brief of what’s happened that day, what your child has been doing, how well they have slept and eaten etc. They also update the app weekly and sometimes daily and it is completely tailored to your own child. It is a great way to be kept on the loop with what they have been doing and to see how they are developing alongside the EYFS guidelines. The children seem to do completely varied activities so no 2 days are the same and they also combine fun activities with educational ones too.
I cannot recommend it enough.

Penny – Elmscot Broussa Nursery

We have been very pleased with the standard of care and support that our little boy has received whilst at Broussa. We have found the environment to be both stimulating and comfortable for him and staff have taken the time to get to know him and ensure that activities are relevant to him. Staff also take time to learn about our family and activities that we do at home so that they can talk to him about this whilst he’s at nursery.
The garden and animals at the nursery are a real positive for our son, as he loves the outdoors and has gained a lot from this environment.
We have trust in the staff and have found them to be professional, yet friendly and caring.

Kristina – Elmscot Broussa Nursery

I was really struggling to find a nursery for my daughter as I wanted somewhere that was a home from home. I believe it’s important for young children to feel secure and have fun when they are little.
After looking at several nurseries, my friend recommended Broussa as her twins had recently joined and were really enjoying it.
After a tour and meeting with the staff and children, my husband and I were relieved we had found somewhere we could place our baby whilst we went back to concentrate on our careers.
The staff are extremely caring and provide so many different activities for the children to enjoy. My little girl loves Thursday Morning’s Pyjama Drama and is so excited when she sees the teacher. She has developed so much and has formed great relationships with the staff and her little friends.

Natalie – Elmscot Woodlands Nursery

Over a year ago I moved my son to Woodlands and straight into the preschool class. It was a big decision to move him from his previous nursery but I haven’t questioned my decision even once. A year on and he is in his final year before he starts primary school and he loves going to Woodlands – on the weekends and days he’s not due to attend, he asks to go. All the staff at Woodlands are simply excellent at what they do and have the most lovely relationship with the kids, whereby they focus on developing independence and other key skills which will help them as they develop. The children drive the direction each of their days take them, some of the activities they participate in are simply fantastic. They use every opportunity they can to take the children outdoors, it’s such a lovely setting. I would recommend Woodlands as a nursery to any new parent – I’ll be sad when my son’s time in such a kind, caring and fun, learning environment comes to an end in August next year.

Catherine – Elmscot Hale Nursery

Gemma – Elmscot Broussa Nursery

We could not be happier with Broussa. My son has really thrived since he has started there, he has made some lovely friends and has a real bond with the staff. He has come on leaps and bounds with the support of the nursery.
We really love all of the different activities that he does on a daily basis and the emphasis that is put on outdoor play. I feel really happy and content when I leave him knowing he is in really good hands.

Deepa – Elmscot Woodlands Nursery

Staff are amazing. They are very supportive and approachable. They are also qualified and experienced. It is nice to see how my child looks forward to go to nursery every day and enjoys his day learning and playing with his friends. The environment at Woodlands encourages learning and development. Children also have activities like ‘forest school’, yoga, zoo lab. The nursery offers a variety of healthy food which is cooked fresh every day (using high-quality ingredients). There are other Ofsted outstanding nurseries much closer to where I live (meaning much less traffic morning and afternoon) but I still chose Woodlands because of the exceptional standards.

Faye – Elmscot Hale Nursery

I cannot recommend this nursery enough. The ladies in all the rooms are wonderful and so caring. My daughter has been here since about 8 months old and moved through the rooms, now she is 3 years old.
The staff really care about the children and make such efforts to ensure they feel safe and loved each day. My little one has food allergies and she is in safe hands with the fresh food here, they make her specials meals to suit. Amazing place!

All of the nursery staff are friendly, welcoming and excellent with our son. He has been so happy and settled at the nursery and enjoys all the different daily activities they organise. The outside space is lovely and well used in all weathers which is great because my little boy loves the outdoors. I would recommend this nursery to everyone – they made returning to work and settling my little boy so much easier than I thought it would be.

Elmscot Hale Nursery Parent

We love Hale Day Nursery and highly recommend it. Our son was there from the age of 12 months until he started school in September. Our daughter, who is nearly three, has also been at the nursery since the age of 12 months. The setting is lovely, all the rooms are really welcoming with loads of age-appropriate toys and activities. The garden is a wonderful space and the children spend a lot of time outside which was important to us. We really like the staff, many of whom have worked at the nursery for some time. They really care about the children and know them well. They also build good relationships with parents. The meals are also excellent, made by on-site cooks.

Jill – Elmscot Hale Nursery

Both of my daughters have attended Hale Day nursery from babies right through to the pre-school room, Owls. I can’t recommend the nursery highly enough. Both of my girls have thrived in the setting and have been so happy there. It’s such a comfort knowing that your children are in such great hands. Everything from the amazing level of care, the lovely meals they have, the amazing outdoor settings, activities and all that they learn, it’s all of such a high standard, which is consistent throughout all rooms. All of the staff are wonderful and it’s clear that their work is a vocation. They really go above and beyond to help the children thrive and grow. But it’s their warmth and care that they give the children that really stands out.

Laura – Elmscot Hale Nursery

We are so thrilled with the progress and happiness of our son at Hale Day Nursery. We did a lot of research around nurseries, reading numerous Ofsted reports and were immediately impressed with the nursery even before even viewing.
Our little boy has been at nursery now since September, he has settled so quickly and is showing his true personality (which is a sign he is comfortable and happy, the most important thing to us).
The management are outstanding and always friendly. The staff in his room are so kind-hearted, warm and fun. They listen to us every day when we arrive to get our little boy and praise him and his behaviour each day. They are all so positive! Thank you! They are consistently there and I am impressed by this as the staff are clearly happy at work. The feedback we receive is in line with EYFS standards and is consistent with whoever produces the reports.
We really love the nursery and so does our son, the magnificent outside space most of all.

My son absolutely loves coming to nursery each week. He has settled so well thanks to the incredible team. Management are hands-on, friendly and approachable and I know that when I come to collect my little one, they are always around – sometimes even pinching snuggles!
Thank you so much for everything you do for my son. Without you, returning to work would have been impossible.

Karl – Elmscot Broussa Nursery

My daughter has attended this nursery for a year now. In that year, she has really developed her interactive skills through song and acting. I have been really pleased with her mentors and one lady, in particular, who was her mentor last term. She went above and beyond in all aspects to support my child and me to understand what is the best way to help develop her skills. I really like the engagement with the daily update sheet you receive. Also, one thing I like is the nursery app this allows me to view what my daughter is doing through written and pictured reviews. Keep up the good work, all staff.

Jess – Elmscot Broussa Nursery

We have used the nursery since 2018 when our daughter started at 5 months old. The staff are caring, have a positive attitude and kindness and this has not changed from the day we first visited the nursery. Each day, children and parents are greeted with smiles, children are welcomed and cuddled in a caring manner on those days they don’t want to part from parents. Each child is treated as an individual and dealt with on this basis, each day my child has carried out a number of activities but with plenty of free time, mostly outside, which has increased her social skills and confidence. At the end of the day, we are always given feedback on what she has been doing and this is also written down to refer to if needed.

Claire – Elmscot Woodlands Nursery

This is such a wonderful nursery, my child absolutely loved the setting in each room and the progress he made over the years was excellent. I can’t recommend the nursery enough the staff are very attentive, kind, caring, go out of their way above and beyond. Even the food choices for the children is excellent. Every day was packed with different activities, different ways of learning. This nursery and all of the staff certainly made the transition to school a breeze.

Laura – Elmscot Woodlands Nursery

Both of my children have attended Woodlands from the age of six months. In each room, my sons have received the very best care and challenge from highly professional, attentive staff. The boys have always been so happy to attend nursery, and the staff get to know the children extremely well and can speak confidently about my child’s day and their learning.
The provision in each room is of an excellent standard- clean, well-maintained play areas and equipment are perfectly matched to the age and stage of the children. We really enjoy receiving pictures and videos of what the children have been doing via app, where this is all linked to the early year’s foundation stage curriculum.
One of my sons has now started reception class at our local primary school, and I cannot recommend Woodlands highly enough for the start they have given him. Not only with knowledge of basic phonics and number, but the skills to get along with his peers, take risks and take care of himself.
The team are wonderful!

Catherine – Elmscot Broussa Nursery

We are absolutely delighted with the outstanding care given to our 2 children since joining Broussa Nursery 2 years ago. The staff are highly professional and exceptionally friendly and caring towards the children providing a top class service every day. The daily routine is full of educational activities which are fun and child-centred and my children love going into the nursery to see what fun activities they will be involved with.
The Tapestry app means we have very regular contact between the nursery and home and is an excellent tool – my children actually request when they can add photos from home to discuss with their friends at circle time the next day.
The extra events put on for parents in terms of parents evenings, forest school taster sessions and workshops ranging from nutrition to behaviour support is excellent and a major attraction for parents.
I cannot recommend Broussa more highly! Thank you for everything you do for the children in your care.

Matt – Elmscot Woodlands Nursery

Nothing bad to say about Woodlands, it’s been an amazing environment for my son. He is an active boy so spent a lot of his time in the amazing garden doing lots of learning as he played. He absolutely loved the forest school sessions too.
The team of girls were all amazing and genuinely care about the children’s learning and development, there were also lots of opportunities for parents to get involved with different activities.
The whole atmosphere of the nursery is fab, from the friendly staff to the nutritional meals, I really wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Woodlands to anyone.

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.

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!


Clare – Elmscot Nantwich Nursery

We have been very impressed with Elmscot since our little boy started here this year – the staff are friendly and he loves his key worker, which makes leaving him there so much easier.

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.

Leanne – Elmscot Nantwich Nursery

Our little girl has been going to this nursery for 8 months now from 5 months old. From day one, she went off no problem at all and now goes to all members of staff with open arms. Our daughter loves her keyworker who is always doing fun and exciting things with her. As for the food… What a menu. I don’t think I’ve ever known her not to eat it all.
Very professional nursery, extremely pleased.

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.




Jo – Elmscot Nantwich Nursery

My child has settled in with full staff care and support. They care about the children as if they were their own. An excellent food menu, variety and quantity, excellent cleanliness. My child gets to experience many activities for his age and all children interact with other age groups – great for development. I am 100% confident that he is getting the best care here. Outside is ample but I have seen larger- but I know kids are taken out here as well. All staff are so friendly and happy to advise you. This is a nursery which lives in the ‘real’ world and knows children well.

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.

Elmscot Nantwich Nursery Parent

Great nursery! Would recommend to everybody! Well managed and friendly staff, safe and happy atmosphere! Thank you for taking care of my daughter!

Alicia – Elmscot Woodlands Nursery

My son has delayed speech. He has been there two days and he is coming out with new words every day, more confidence and very happy. This is a brilliant nursery with cameras inside and outside, security with parental fingerprint systems so I know my son is safe. I would recommend highly.

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.

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!

Elmscot Nantwich Nursery Parent

The staff at Elmscot, Nantwich are very engaged with the upbringing of my child. She is developing socially and academically in a way we could not achieve at home.
We always feel our daughter is safe and well looked after, with plenty of opportunities to learn and play. We are also very happy with the standard of food.

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.

Elmscot Day Nursery – Dylan Hather

We are pleased with the progress Georgia has made whilst being in the Oak Room, she loves going to nursery and often runs to the room as she is so excited to start her day.

Thank you to everybody who has contributed to Georgia’s progress.

Elmscot Day Nursery – Sophia Borg-Bartolo

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

Hale Day Nursery is a wonderful nursery. My daughter has attended this nursery since she was 11 months old and she is now 4. She leaves in August 2017 to start school in September.
The staff in her current room, owls, are amazing! The staff have such a great attitudes towards the children and it is clear to see how much they care about the children and their development. I think they are truly wonderful and my daughter will miss them terribly.

Elmscot Hale Nursery Parent

My son has been at Hale Day Nursery for the past 3 years and is currently in their preschool class. The care he has received has always been excellent. The setting is clean, safe and our son loves the outside space. I am reassured by the excellent care he receives from his current key worker shows a genuine and sincere interest in his welfare and development. I highly recommended this nursery.

Lizzie & James Meadowcroft – Hale Day Nursery

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.

Mum and Dad to Lucas


Nia Moorhouse – Elmscot Day Nursery

Could I take this opportunity to thank everyone at Elmscot for your hard work, support for our whole family – not just the children – and your dedication. I really will miss being part of the Elmscot family which has treated us so well over the last six years.

Joanne Whitwell- Maisie and Lauries Mum

I  wanted to say a huge thank you for making the girls so welcome over the years. you really do run a fantastic nursery which is head and shoulders above all others I have ever seen. Your whole team are amazing and we are sorry to leave but it is the next step now at the school nursery.


Hale Day Nursery

“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”

Kirsty – Elmscot Woodlands Nursery

My son started at Woodlands in January 2017 and the staff were amazing with him. He settled quickly and has already made some great bonds with the team.

In only 3 months, his language and understanding have come on leaps and bounds and he’s even learning ‘baby signing’ which he uses daily, along with words, to communicate his needs. As a full time working mum, I feel happy and safe in the knowledge that my son is in the best place and more importantly, that he’s happy.

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.

Kim – Elmscot Woodlands Nursery

Louise – Elmscot Altrincham Nursery

My daughter is in the Maple room at Elmscot and always enjoys her time there. The team are fantastic and take such good care of her. I can also see the improvement in her language due to the activities and learning that the staff do with them. They are always doing something different and she always comes home with lots of artwork and different crafts. The food they provide at Elmscot is excellent, but also very nutritious. The team at Elmscot are so friendly and welcoming and my daughter and us love it there! I would recommend it to anyone.

My second child is now attending Elmscot after my first started at 7 months until pre-school and had the most amazing experience, as my second child is now. I feel confident and relieved that my child is in a safe and secure environment being well looked after and coming on in leaps and bounds. His confidence and development are coming on during each day he attends. I feel comfortable to approach the staff if the need ever arises.

Katherine – Elmscot Altrincham Nursery

My son started at Elmscot Nursery when he was 9 months and has loved his time there, he is now 3 years old and moved through 3 rooms, making friends with other children and staff in each.
Every staff member is friendly, knows my son by name and is happy to chat.
His key workers have always been approachable and able to update me on his progress.
I’ll be sad for him to leave.

My husband and I are extremely pleased with the provision that Elmscot Day Nursery provides for our son. He is a happy little boy and this is due to the love, care and support he had from all staff at Elmscot Day Nursery. He has access to a vast array of learning experiences and he is always keen to tell us about the new things he has learnt in the day. We are delighted with the progress he has made at Elmscot Day Nursery and very proud of the achievement he has experienced so far. This is down to the sheer commitment of all involved in his care. Thank you Elmscot Day Nursery.
