Comments from parents and carers of children who attended in July 2017:
Nursery has been an amazing nurturing fun environment. (He) has developed, matured and been so very happy here. It’s run so smoothly. The staff are professional, welcoming and so nurturing. We will miss all the staff and the environment so much. Wishing you all the best.
An amazing nursery, filled with caring and lovely staff. Couldn’t wish for a better start for (her). Thankyou.
I was nervous moving (him) from his previous setting to the school nursery as he finds change hard but moved him as I thought it would be better for him when moving onto school. He actually got on so much better at the school nursery and I’m really happy with my choice. All the nursery staff are lovely, he’s made some good friends to move up to school with and is very happy. Couldn’t ask for more.
All we as a family want to say is a huge thank you for all your support, love and encouragement, you are an incredible team and we are so lucky to have experienced Maidenbower Nursery. We just wish (she) could stay longer. Thanks again.
Thank you for making the boys experience a great one!

"The staff are friendly and attuned to the children's needs."
"I cannot thank the nursery enough. Nothing is too much for them. My daughter settled amazingly and was allowed a fantastic transition period. All the staff are fantastic and approachable. They all know the children and their individual personalities so well. I honestly cannot fault the nursery and look forward to the next academic year."
"We love this nursery - thank you so much."
"The nursery is so lovely. My son really enjoys going and has progressed so much this year both socially and academically. It has been amazing to watch his confidence grow, all thanks to the nursery. The staff are fantastic, friendly and approachable. I would highly recommend this setting to anyone."
"We loved attending the nursery and will be sad to say goodbye - keep up all your hard work!"
