Thank you to everyone who has given us these testimonials...

Thank you all so much for the most amazing couple of years Isabella has had since coming to you.  She has enjoyed every minute and has come on beyond my expectations.  I cannot believe it’s time for her to say goodbye to you all and move on to big school – if I had my way she would stay with you forever.  You should all be very proud of the incredible setting you’ve created as a team and it would be impossible for me to sum up how thankful I am in this short space.  I will be forever grateful for the advice, support, love and guidance you’ve given Bella (and myself).  You’ve all played such an invaluable part in her life thank you.  Bella chose the apple tree so there will always be a part of Bella with you.  We hope it grows and flourishes as she did and that the children can enjoy the fruit.

How do I begin to say thank you.  Just two words cannot convey it.

Dawn – committed and always comfortable to talk to.

Heather – always keen to get hands on and help.

Tash – a real trouper! Smiles and kind words.

Jane – giggler!  So easy to build a rapport with.

Sue – Cuddle monster! Kind, happy, always a favourite.

Charlotte – I never quite got to know, but thank you.

I will never forget what you have done for us.  Memories are priceless and cannot be taken away.



We can’t thank you all enough for everything you have done for our son during his time at nursery.  We couldn’t have wanted anything more from a nursery and we are so glad that both L & N were lucky enough to be looked after, supported and guided by such an amazing team of dedicated professionals.  Saying thank you to you all really doesn’t seem enough.   As soon as I stepped in to the Old School House Nursery, I knew it was a special place – and L & N would tell you I was right!

The Old School House Nursery is very special nursery indeed– the fact you are all Mum’s really makes a difference. There are so many fun activities and so many opportunities for learning that our son is thriving here and growing into a happy, confident little boy. I knew when I met the staff this was the place for us - all of you are wonderful, warm and caring.  I feel completely happy leaving him in such safe hands knowing he is going to love every minute of his morning.

Our son has not been left with anyone other than family and close friends, so choosing the right setting to look after him was a real worry.  On visiting The Old School House Nursery, from the first time we could feel the home-from-home environment and sensed the staff were mature and experienced.  Our son settled in quickly and is always excited to return to nursery.  You offer so much more than a normal pre-school - always going that extra mile.  They make the children's experience one to remember.  They have such fun packed days and gain in confidence and learning.

Experienced, mature staff nurture each child in a small, friendly homely environment making it an ideal setting for children to develop confidence and independence away from parents.  The staff genuinely care for every child.

Annabel Leech


A nurturing, fun and stimulating environment created by dedicated professionals who enable my daughter to be an individual, to be ever growing in confidence and to have fun learning at her own pace.  A fantastic and unique nursery!

I just wanted to say how delighted we are with the range of activities you offer and get our child involved with! It’s lovely to know that you offer activities such as cooking, ballet and the woodland walk weekly (as well as everything else) which really helps us prepare our child and get her excited about coming, as she can sometimes-like you know-struggle with changes in routine. From my childcare background I know how hard it can be with staffing to make all of these lovely activities possible as well as caring for all the children to such a high standard. She’s settled so nicely into nursery and the staff have all been friendly and welcoming which has made our move to the area a lot smoother. Many Thanks on behalf of all of us.

We couldn't be happier with how our son has settled into nursery (18 months old). It is wonderful to see all the things he has been getting up to!  He absolutely loves it and has learnt so much since starting.  Thank you to all the staff for making him feel so loved and content while he is there.  We are very grateful for all your hard work.
