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..
Young Friends is a wonderful nursery. Amazing staff and management. Great interior and garden. My son is there at the moment and is really happy, we joined in February of this year and instantly felt like part of the family. I can’t recommend this Nursery enough. They really do care about the children’s welfare and progression and my son (who is 3) has blossomed since he’s been there. Many thanks to all of you in the Young Friends Team. April 2018. Nikki Cashin, mother of Billy.
Having had experience with other nurseries, I can categorically say Young Friends in Hove is a cut above the rest. Nowhere else have I seen the dedication from staff to nurture each child’s individual development. From the varied trips to the unique activities, my daughter is always excited to go to nursery and wants to be involved in everything. The children are outside every day and are conscious of nature and the environment. My daughter’s speech and social skills have quickly developed whilst at Young Friends and she is very caring towards others. I know this is due to how the nursery staff encourage the children to positively express their feelings and interact with each other. This is the one nursery I have been to where all the staff from the office to the key workers absolutely delight in the children and their wellbeing. Being a single mum it’s of the upmost importance to me that the nursery plays a vital role in my daughter’s upbringing as I need their support, and Young Friends has more than exceeded my expectations. I mean every word of this – Young Friends has been a godsend to us and Anaïs is so happy there.Thank you!

Hi there lovely lot. I’d like to reduce summers nursery days to two school short days please. I no longer need the extra childcare but she loves it with you guys and is clearly barmy about you all so I would love to keep her in for two short days a week if you still can…Lucy Yallop. Jan 2018
We can’t thank the staff enough for the excellent care they give our son. They truly do know him as an individual. The care he receives is outstanding and he really loves his days at Young Friends. I would highly recommend the nursery to anyone with young children. Nicole. Mother of Toby. Feb 2018.
It feels surreal that after 5 years and two boys later, that we will finally be saying farewell to Young Friends. You have helped so much and played a significant part in their young lives and we are very grateful for everything you have all done for them and us as a family. Thank you! Mark Edmondson, father of Finn and Wilf 2017
I cannot recommend Young Friends Nursery highly enough. Both my children have attended and I’ve never needed to consider anywhere else. As soon as you walk into the building it just feels right – homely, friendly, safe and secure. Louise is so passionate and knowledgeable about childcare and this starts at the top and filters down. Young Friends has a high retention rate of staff which speaks volumes, everyone who works there enjoys and cares about what they do, this is reflected in how brilliant they are with the kids. I feel Young Friends tackle the important things in life like good food, the environment, nature, outdoor play, instilling creative play, music, dance etc. Most importantly my kids have fun there, I am able to feel happy leaving them there knowing they are happy too.
