Today we dressed up as characters from Matilda. The children have made pancakes, book marks and dream catchers and completed a golden ticket hunt.
Hello I didn’t have a chance to thank you for Sebastian’s Birthday photos.
…and that you made that day special for him on Monday! Sebastian loves coming to the nursery (although he’s only just started) and we are very pleased about it so thank you for making him feel so happy there. Thank you very much once again!!

When Finn arrived at school he was happy, confident and ahead of the game academically…
We are writing to you a good year after our son, Finn, has left your fantastic nursery. This is to say a heartfelt thank you to you and your team. When Finn arrived at school not only was he confident, happy and socially aware and totally ready but noticeably ahead of the game academically than the majority of his peers. At the time we knew he was doing inspiring and varied activities that were planned and structured around his interests but the attention to gearing him up for his school days genuinely has made his time at school easier, happier and more exciting right from the off. He loves school and this is a large part down to Young Friends. He also adores cooking – all that measuring and pouring also went a long way. This is all without even mentioning one of the things that first made us leave another nursery and come to you – the wonderful photos of him in action at the nursery that you give to parents. They are even more precious all this time after and even he loves looking through them. These fantastic moments would have been lost by now. What a great thing to do – thank you!

It’s a somewhat daunting task deciding who will look after your young child but we immediately felt our 1 year old was in safe hands.
We immediately liked Young Friends as the setting has a warm atmosphere and is obviously well run. The staff are great and very good at what they do. It’s a somewhat daunting task deciding who will look after your young child but we immediately felt our 1 year old was in safe hands.
The entire setting seems stimulating and exciting, from the rooms to the outdoor area. Our 1 year old absolutely loves it and is thriving there. The settling in process was well thought through and they understand it can be difficult for the parents as well as the children; we certainly felt supported.
In summary we are very happy with the nursery and often recommend it to friends.

It’s not an exaggeration to say the Declan is made feel like a rock star everyday he comes to Young Friends…
“To have your child loved, educated and inspired each day by such a wonderful team is the greatest joy and reassurance to his mother and myself”

It’s an emotional time settling your little ones into nursery and returning to work but you have honestly made it so much better than I had anticipated.
I just wanted to say thank you for making Matilda’s settles and first week as painless as possible.
You have all been so supportive and flexible and I really appreciate it. As you know, it’s an emotional time settling your little ones into nursery and returning to work but you have honestly made it so much better than I had anticiptated.
The girls in the chimp room have been totally amazing. Matilda seems so comfortable and happy with them already.
I just wanted to say thank you for being great. Please pass this on to Cheryl and Carly.

Thank you for arranging the fire service visit yesterday…
First of all, thank you for arranging the fire service visit yesterday. The children loved it. Berenice loved the experience. It takes time and effort in arranging visits like these. We really appreciate what you and your team brought to all the children at Young Friends. Well done!
Have a good day!

The care for my child is exceptional…
“My son has been attending Young Friends Nursery for the last 2 years – we feel we are part of the Young Friends family. The care for my child is exceptional. He is in a well thought out, stimulating environment where there is lots of lovely equipment. The outdoor space is wonderful – lots of areas for the children to explore, grow, dig, climb, ride and play. The staff are very caring and professional.
They are friendly, loving and kind and work well as a team. The children are valued and listened to and their interests are pursued. They are made to feel special.
My son eats like a king at Young Friends and the food is home cooked and nutritionally balanced. The snacks are interesting and healthy. He has opportunities to play indoors and outdoors and has made many friends.
Young Friends Nursery also holds high values in its attitude towards environmental issues and is committed to improving these.
We are delighted with the child care provision we receive at this establishment.”
