I do feel that safeguarding and wellbeing of the children is fully prioritised and staff go to great lengths to support families and children. The Nursery demonstrates empathy and works hard to ensure fairness for families/children here. Really stands out as 'safe space' for children.

It was really nice to meet other families In our group, in the same situation as us, "I was terrified to start with but it was an extremely fun day"
