What The Parents Say
We understand that choosing a nursery can be a daunting prospect. There are many options. However, we feel our nursery is a great place for your child. Here are some amazing testimonials, from other parents, who have trusted us with their children.
Our little boy attended the nursery since he was a baby. The staff are amazing, Kinder Place Nursery was like a second family to us. Our little boy needed a lot of medication and extra attention and we felt completely confident that our son was really loved, cared for and extremely safe. When we needed extra support and help the nursery went above and beyond what was required. We sadly had to leave due to moving. But we miss them all Very very much. I can't recommend this nursery highly enough.
Both my children attended Kinder Place. A fantastic start to their education with varied inside and outside play. The staff were accommodating around my work hours and were supportive and approachable. Both my children have fond memories of nursery and still go back to visit despite being at school now. My daughter enjoyed the French lessons and my son loved the messy play and insects /animals. Well done to all the staff
... started at Kinder Place at 8 months old and has just left to start school. He has loved his time there and become very confident and happy. The staff have been fantastic, he made great progress from the start and has moved forward to his first week at school really well. Would recommend to everyone
