Creating a good rapport with our families is one of the most crucial things we do as parent partnerships contribute to positive outcomes for Young Friends children. Because old ones aren’t all that useful here are some recent testimonials of families’ experiences at Young Friends Nursery and Nature School..
Both our kids have done very well here. The staff are warm, friendly and genuinely perceptive of the children’s needs. They tailor activities to the kid’s interests and keep the rooms fresh and attractive.
When choosing the nursery one of the real clinchers was Louise’s sincere belief in getting the kids outdoors and in contact with the natural world through a huge garden, beach cleans, weekly nature plot visits, trips to the farm the parks and even Reggio inspired play indoors.
They have helped my kids grow into active, respectful and engaged children. This was even more evident when my eldest attended the nearby primary school: despite his difficulty with change he transitioned beautifully and was ready for this important next step.
We are always grateful for the support and care YF has given us and our kids. We strongly recommend them!
This is my 5th year with Young Friends Nursery, with my second child there now. They have made so many excellent changes over that time with the nature plot and reusable nappies being some great highlights! The staff are amazing and they are always thinking about how they can improve. Can’t recommend them enough!
Such a great nursery, I can’t recommend them enough. They were brilliantly supportive to my one year old throughout the settling process and really took the time to give the one to one support he (and I!) needed during the transition of me going back to work. He now adores it there and it’s testament to the energy and thought the whole staff team put into nurturing each child’s interests and personalities. As a parent I feel connected to what’s going on on a day to day basis, and our keyperson is always happy to give whatever time is needed to discuss the important things that are going on for our child. They do a great job of fostering his inquisitive nature – both through the staff’s supportive encouragement, the environment the kids have to spend time in and the approach the team take to learning.
