Parent Testimonials

"The nursery’s strengths are the caring staff who are interested in the whole family’s well being. a laid back and relaxed atmosphere that is like home from home for the children. Lauren, Natalie and Chloe have been particularly caring and have bent over backwards to help us. They have supported us during difficulties with sleep issues with our daughter and helped potty train our son. They have washed dirty/soiled clothes and were happy to use real nappies and have even bathed our son when he got very messy. |I consider this above and beyond what we pay for and want to thank them for their fantastic work." Marianne Parkes
"I am always really impressed with the variety of activities that are planned, and the thought, imagination and detail that goes into them." Chloe Cook

"If your looking for a nursery that is outstanding in terms of staff, development, menus, fees and most of all a caring environment then this is it. Staff are more than caring they really care about your child, they are very considerate and go beyond their job roles in looking after after and stimulating my children. They ensure that the children’s needs are met with a huge element of fun through play to assist with development. The food is outstanding, offering a massive variety and all diets are catered for, even down to preferences. Our baby has special needs and her key worker has been absolutely brilliant in terms of coming up with different ideas for stimulation and sensory items. She is thoughtful with her planning and when carrying out suitable activities in relation to our baby’s development and independent stage. The management are friendly, open and honest and always approachable about any issues. I felt instantly at ease and there is nothing I would change about this nursery. Its obvious that the emphasis is not on profit but on caring. My 3 year old son was initially at another nursery and I didnt realise how unhappy he was, but at the Ark he settled straight away and really loves it. He feels valued at “Rainbow |Nursery” as he calls it." Meghan Blakeman

"The feed back sheet at the end of every day is great and is always well completed and informative. I feel and believe my son is very well cared for. I feel the staff care for the children genuinely and not just because it’s their job but because they have bonded with the children. I am totally happy with the Ark and so pleased I changed nursery’s. I would, and have, recommended it to friends. Well done and keep up the excellent work". Sue Sinkinson
