Our testimonials

What a fantastic nursery! My son has been coming here since he was just a year old and is only leaving because he is starting school. He has had the best time every day, they do so many different activities with the children, he has learned so much and his progress has been amazing to watch.

More than that though is the complete peace of mind I have leaving him in their care, I know he will be safe, really well looked after and will be having so much fun and I don’t need to worry.

The owners Clare and Ian are amazing and have a brilliant team who really get to know and care about each child, their likes and dislikes and they tailor the activities accordingly. Their garden is lovely and the toys are always being updated, they have special events like muddy puddle walks in the park and visiting reindeer at Christmas.

The communication is fantastic and we are kept informed of changes and special events, the staff are all so approachable so any questions we do have are answered straight away. Each day we are told what he has eaten and what he has been doing.

There just aren’t enough words to say how much I love this nursery and would highly recommend to anyone xxx

My 1 year old and 4 year old love this nursery. It is a home from home setting and I feel confident leaving them with the staff knowing they are safe and well looked after. When I come to pick them up it is evident that they have enjoyed themselves and are happy, giving the staff a big hug when saying goodbye.

The nurserys location is brilliant as its so lovely when the staff take the children to feed the ducks and go wildlife watching. My sons have benefited enormously in terms of their development and have built strong friendships with the staff other children. I highly recommend this nursery. Well done Clare and Ian.

Great nursery! The owners and the staff are lovely, kind and caring. Our little girl has had the best time and she is missing them all. We’re hoping to get a place there for the little man too. Just brilliant! X

Both of my children have attended Playdays nursery, my daughter started with Clare and Ian as child minders before they opened the nursery, then my son joined later. They have both loved it there, all of the teachers are amazing, caring and friendly (and according to my son, they make better toast than me :-)).

My son had speech delay, and we were referred to a speech therapist who gave us different games to play with him in order to help his speech, everyone at the nursery worked with us to give him the time needed to progress. He is now starting school this week and I have no concerns about this speech, thanks for the support of the staff at Playdays.

If you are looking for a nursery who will do anything to take the best care of your children then I highly recommend Playdays.

Our daughter has just had her last day at Playdays. She has cried and spoken about all her teachers and friends everyday since. We absolutely couldn’t recommend this nursery highly enough. They treat the children like their own and the owners Clare and Ian are so friendly, helpful and flexible. The nursery is light, clean and very well organised. The outdoor play area is constantly being updated, modified and improved - we always felt our daughter was safe and well looked after. Healthy food and snacks are cooked fresh and on-site by their wonderful cook. All the staff are very experienced and you can tell how happy they are working here as it shows in their care and professional yet friendly approach. Using Jolly phonics and various handwriting/letter formation activities/ maths and counting - they have nurtured our daughter so that she is ready for school. The team are always thinking of ways to get visitors in to the nursery to offer extra curricular experiences for the children -Isabella has met dentists, held an owl, met Father Christmas, learnt how to be fit and healthy with a sports coach, raised money for charity and so much more. An outstanding nursery in our eyes.

It’s an emotional day as the girls leave nursery it’s not a goodbye as we’ll be back visiting for sure, I’m sure Lilly will want to show off her school uniform! We cannot thank enough for the care you have given our girls and everything you have done to help them grow. You’ve been such a huge part of their lives and they are going to miss you all, key workers and their little friends x thank you thank you thank you xxx
