What our parents have to say

We are very proud of our history and very grateful to all the parents that have entrusted the care of their children to Abbotswood over the years.  Here below are some of the lovely things that parents have said to us.

I have been so pleased with the experiences both my children have had at Abbotswood, right from babies through to Preschool.

For the little ones the staff provide a caring, home from home, environment and as they get older the children are provided with a rich learning experience.

The outdoor area is second to none, and I always know the children have had a good day when their appearance shows they have been in the garden.

My daughter has attended Abbotswood pre-school and day nursery from the age of 13 months through to starting school and I honestly have only wonderful things to say about it.

The setting is fantastic, with so many exciting things for the children to do and explore, particularly the outside space and the opportunity to interact with animals. How many other nurseries have ducks and chickens?!

The staff are incredible and you can really tell they love what they do. The care my daughter has received throughout the different stages has been fantastic, all the staff and children feel like an extension to our family. It has been incredible to be able to leave her there happily, knowing that she will be loved, cared for and stimulated.

What more could you ask for in a childcare setting? We are very sad that her time at Abbotswood has come to an end but, thanks to the amazing work of the staff, she is ready for big school.

We can’t wait for our new baby to start his Abbotswood journey soon.

My husband and I felt so comfortable leaving our daughter in the caring and capable hands of the staff in the baby room when she started at Abbotswood. They were extremely attentive, making sure they did their best to follow our daughter’s routine and nurture her rapid development.

Today, I look forward to picking my daughter up and hearing all about her day in Toddlers. She is constantly learning new skills and is exposed to so many different activities. I love that the children spend so much time outdoors, getting grubby in the fresh air, as children should do.

Staff continue to listen and act on any feedback we have had. Our daughter loves her nursery days and we leave her in the knowledge that she’s safe, cared for and having fun.

We honestly from the bottom of our hearts can’t thank you enough for your setting Eri is so happy xxx
We can not thank the staff enough in Babies for welcoming our daughter into such a warm and friendly setting. We know when we drop Erin off she is always going to have such fun which is reflected when we pick her up and she is full of smiles but exhausted!!!

Nikki and Ellie have worked particularly close with Erin and they know her inside and out and we feel so lucky to have you both. We certainly have made the right decision sending our daughter to Abbotswood.

Feel I must also mention the yummy food Erin is experiencing. - it’s always such a variety, healthy and fresh which is really helping Erin into not becoming a fussy eater!
