We have recently had some fantastic parent reviews of our setting.

Acklam – My son has been back and forth to Acklam Day Nursery. This is the only nursery my son will settle at and it’s no surprise why. The staff are amazing with the children. They have a real care for each child’s overall development and well being. They’ve been outstanding supporting my son through difficulties and also supporting me, which with a very active toddler makes you feel more sane. I would 100% recommend Acklam Day nursery will be an emotional day when my son has to leave.

Billingham – My 2 children joined this nursery last year as theirs closed due to financial difficulties during coronavirus. The staff have been amazing at welcoming them and settling them in. They are caring and supportive, even more flexible with dates and accomodating for my children so I can work. Also, they have accommodated well to my daughter’s needs as she has a milk protein allergy yet she still has the same as other children but with adapted recipes with her milk. I have been overjoyed to see my children happy and well and can go to work carefree knowing they are safe and looked after

Ingleby Barwick – This is a lovely, welcoming nursery. The staff are friendly and caring towards the children. My son loves attending the setting, he always talks about what he has done at the end of the day. The activities are varied and planned to help the children to develop. The staff take the children’s individual interests into account when offering activities. The food offered is a big hit with my son! Overall a fab nursery!

Marton – Absolutely fantastic nursery. All the staff are lovely, welcoming and really care about the children. My son has attended since the age of 1 (now 3) and my daughter will be starting next month. The only place I trust to take care of my children while I’m at work. Highly recommended.

Minnows – My little girl absolutely loves the staff and nursery. We were really worried she wouldn’t settle anywhere as had a few issues, but this nursery has been amazing for her, and she really enjoys coming every day

Nunthorpe – This is a lovely nursery with friendly and attentive staff who I know will care for and meet the needs of my child. My child informs me, with lots of stories of how he has enjoyed his days at ‘school’ and he has grown in confidence thanks to the support of the brilliant staff at Nunthorpe Children’s Day Nursery. I’m regularly updated through Tapestry which is nice, especially during a pandemic where a lot has changed. I can see from the photos on Tapestry that the nursery is a clean, spacious learning environment where there are lots of engaging activities for my child to immerse himself and interact with other children which helps with his communication skills.Poppets – My daughter started in September and is excited to go to nursery each morning. She has settled in well and runs in without a second glance back at myself. She displays positivity when asked about her day and her teachers. Staff are friendly and cheerful. They are informative and always willing to assist with queries. I’m looking forward to watching my little girl progress throughout her time there
TAD – My oldest daughter came here and having my second in January 2020, there was no doubt in my mind she would attend TAD also when the time came I had to return to work. The girls (staff) are lovely and both my daughters loved their time here. I would recommend to anyone looking for childcare to consider the TAD Centre as their choice of provider. Couldn’t praise or thank them enough. Thanks for everything. Top team

Teesdale – Before the entrance of the nursery, I had a lot of questions and was stressed due to a new step in my child’s life.
The manager of the nursery replied to the million questions, offered the tour in the nursery to give me a chance to be sure that my child is in the right place.
We made the right decision because I see every day my happy child running to the nannies. Step by step my daughter learns new words and songs.
Important to mention that we moved recently and my daughter couldn’t speak English. I was surprised when I heard new English words from my child in 2-weeks.
