Testimonials

Here's what some of our parents think about our food;

The Old School Nursery is a fabulous place with dedicated and enthusiastic staff. They have been brilliant dealing with my son's multiple allergies, catering for him specially and never making an issue of this. He loves it there and I feel very comfortable leaving him with them. The fees are straightforward and cover everything, including 3 good meals a day which makes life so much easier when you're working. Highly recommended! - Clemency Jan 2016

I'm so pleased we chose this nursery and my daughter would go everyday if we allowed her. She now eats food she wouldn't try before and always has a delicious home cooked hot meal. - Kirsty Aug 2015


The children eat delicious home cooked food, with a carefully balanced menu which changes frequently. They are also understanding and patient with children who may not be quite as adventurous about trying new things (my little boy wouldn’t eat sandwiches at one point, so they would give him crackers instead).
- Kirsty Aug 2015

Thank you so much for looking after the girls over the last few years. They have blossomed into characterful, fun, happy children and have thoroughly enjoyed their time here. Thanks again for everything that you and your team have done.

Sarah Feb 2016

My son has been attending the nursery for over 2 years and has always loved going. The nursery is advertised as a home away from home and this is certainly the case, it is often hard to get him to leave because he’s having soo much fun! The staff are always friendly and informative, keeping you up to date with your child’s progress and telling you all about funny things that have been said or done during the day.

Kirstie Jan 2016

My daughter, who is just 8 months, has been going to The Old School Nursery for just 3 weeks and has settled in exceptionally well. The staff are lovely and such caring people, who cannot do enough to alleviate any worries about leaving your precious little one.

Vicki Dec 2015

This nursery is a hidden diamond. It feels like a big friendly family. I have never had any concerns about leaving my 2 boys in their care. The boys have loved every moment of their time there.

Heidi Nov 2015

One of the scariest moments in a parents life is leaving their most precious, most loved and most vulnerable human being with people they do not really know. With The Old School Nursery, what should have been a traumatic experience became a moment handled with grace, kindness, support and understanding.
