Please read what has been said about us, here at Poppins Private Day Nursery.
“Poppins Day Nursery is small but lovely and caring nursery with great staff. With a designated key worker, our little boy has come on so much since starting nursery 6 months ago. The nursery provides a great range of activities and parents are kept well informed as to what their child(ren) have been doing through their daily record and through their online Tapestry journal. The nursery are happy to follow your child's routine and have a great relationship with parents. We are really happy with the service being provided and, more importantly, our little boy is incredibly happy there.”
“Poppins is a loving and caring environment, they have provided such consistency with this while my children have been in their care. One moment that I will never forget and will be forever grateful for, was the care they gave to my little girl who had her first fit. Without getting out any information on her they were able to tell the paramedics everything there was to tell about my little girl. So professional - organised and efficient - I couldn’t ask for anywhere better for my children.” (Josie, Mother)
“There is a lovely, welcoming and homely atmosphere at Poppins. Everyone is friendly and professional, our child is happy about going there and loves talking about time spent there. Language and development has come on really well since first attending. The range of activities and experiences is excellent. Staff are excellent and go the extra mile to give the personal touch and share experiences of the time spent there each day.” (Sarah, Mother)
“Our daughter has been going to Poppins since she was 9 months old and she is very happy there and always excitedly rings the doorbell in a morning! The staff are always very welcoming and friendly and are always willing to discuss our concerns. We feel they know our daughter really well which makes us really happy. We love reading her daily diary to see what she has been busy doing that day. Poppins is a small nursery which is lovely and our daughter enjoys having the opportunity to play with all the children within the nursery. She loves the food-often asking for 'more!' She eats better at nursery than she does at home.” (Rachel, Mother)
"Our little boy loves going to Poppins; I often have to chase him to get him to leave! He does things and eats things he wouldn't at home. The staff knew him really well after a short time and encouraged him to experience different things. He spends lots of time outside getting fresh air and exercise and as the nursery is small he gets to play with the older boys, which he loves! He has made some great friends, and he's really progressing quickly and learning so much. I look forward to reading his daily report about what he has been up to each day" (Clare, Mother)
"The carers at Poppins are always kind and cheerful. They do a lot with the children and the small nursery is like a home from home. They are very good at communicating with parents and make an effort to keep you informed. My son is very happy there"
"Poppins Day Nursery provides a home from home environment with friendly and caring staff. Each member of staff shows a genuine care and interest in your child- you feel like your child is as special to them as he/she is to you. The welcoming atmosphere of the nursery staff is reflected in the colourful and stimulating decoration and displays throughout the building. My child enjoys a stimulating range of activities throughout the day, as well periods of free play, cookery, messy play and plenty of outdoor exercise. No hesitations in recommending Poppins"
"As two working parents it is hard to leave your child with strangers. Our son has been at Poppins since he was one and will leave for 'big school' this year. We enjoy reading about what he gets up to everyday and love it when he proudly shows his latest masterpiece or what he has cooked. He has made great friends and obviously feels very comfy with the staff who care for him. We believe Poppins is a safe and kind environment in which a child can grow and develop and we are planning on sending our younger son later this year"
(Beth & Alex, Mother & Father)
"I would have no problem in recommending Poppins to any parent looking for a welcoming and nurturing environment for their child to grow and progress. My eldest son went to Poppins and is now 7, he is still best friends with a boy he met there. My daughter is now there as we wanted her to have the same wonderful experience. We had many tears to start with dropping her off but the staff worked so hard exploring different techniques to make her happy, that now she wanders in not even glancing back! Thank you Poppins" (Claire, Mother)
"I would recommend Poppins without reservation. The staff are excellent and the care and development my son has received is wonderful. He does different activities each day (inc dressing up, water play, making his own pizza, crafts) and we get a daily log of what he's been learning. It's very homily and everyone knows who you are. I especially like the interaction between the age groups. Thank you Poppins"
