"Quite categorically the finest and most loving nursery you could find for your child.
We have been so lucky after many nurseries for our other children to happen
upon this wonderful, fun, energetic, creative and utterly inspiring nursery run
un-assumingly from Clare Gould's home. Her garden is exactly what any child
wishes for, her home and staff are the kindest and most nurturing. Daily the
creative output from the kitchen table astounds, from flower arranging to hobby
horses and fresh soup to eat that day, everything topical is covered. The
'class room' is never short of ideas and new methods, the annual nativity and
sports days are total community times. From tractor rides, to endless walks, a
new and exciting project every day, but a stable routine of normality and
learning. My son has left a very happy soul, loved and educated, developed,
well mannered, with his character and integrity intact and enhanced." (parent)
"Children enjoy an abundance of exciting and inventive experiences and thrive on the new challenges provided. All children make outstanding progress from their initial starting point.
Staff use every oppotunity to encourage and praise children for their achievments. Children are valued. They learn to share, understand boundaries, are very kind and considerate, and value others' views..
Children are confident to take risks according to their age and ability, and staff expertly support them to manage tasks safely" (OFSTED January 2016)
