“The nursery has a very warm and welcoming feeling as you walk in. The staff are very friendly and very easy to approach. They do lots of things outdoors with the children. All staff also know each child, which makes it more personal and inviting for the child.” – Anya - Day Nurseries Review
“My son loves going to the nursery. As soon as he sees the nursery his face lights up and he runs up the path to the door. He has been made to feel very welcome moving up to the three's room and is always happy when I go back to collect him. Staff are always happy to help and will always pass on information of what he has been doing during his session and how he has behaved.”– Vicki - Day Nurseries Review
“Both of my children have been at Buoys and Gulls since they were 1. My daughter has now left but the change in her confidence levels since she started was great to see! My son loves the 3-5 room and loves his time there. I feel like both of my children have made great friends and good connections with staff. I know that if I have a problem, I can go to most of the staff members there and resolve it. I know my child is well looked after and safe which makes me feel less guilty about leaving him to go to work.” – Louise - Day Nurseries Review
