We have had hundreds of wonderful parents and children come through our nursery over the years, and hundreds of lovely cards and letters from them.

Here is a selection of what our parents have had to say about us:

“We would like to say a big ‘thank you’ for the caring service we have received over the last 6 years.  Today is Evie’s last day, but of course we had Max at the nursery before her.  We have never hesitated in recommending the nursery to friends and colleagues and will continue to do so.  Both Max and Evie have really enjoyed their time with you, and it feels sad to be saying a final goodbye.  We believe, like you, that the formative years are paramount, and both Mike and I felt we made the right decision entrusting our children with you.”    

Alison and Mike

“Thank you all so much for taking such good care of Felicity over the last two years.  She has loved going into nursery and is always so proud of the things that she has learnt and done.  The staff in every room that she has been in, have been kind and genuinely interested in her development.  We couldn’t have wished for a better place for Felicity and are grateful to you all.”

Neal, Charis and Felicity

“Having settled everyone into school I now have time to draw breath and thank you for the many years of care you have offered our children.  In every case, we think they have benefitted enormously from the ethos of your nursery.  You have made time for all three children as individuals, recognised and valued their developing abilities, allowed them a circle of their peers to mix with and supported them as they learn to be part of a group.  You have gently and responsively helped prepare them to start school.  You have shared our values in treasuring the creativity and freedom of the moment that is so special about childhood, just as you have helped socialise them to face the demands of their future.  We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you have given our children and the friendship and support you have offered us over the years.”    Sue and Neil

“Words are not enough to express our gratitude at the care and love extended to Aaron first, and now Gracie over the past 9 years.  Thank you.  We will continue to point family and friends in your direction and pray that the nursery will continue to flourish in every way.”    Tai and Ayo

“We’d like to say thank you very much to all the staff who have worked with Hollie over the last 4 years.  She has had a really brilliant time and has loved coming each day.  The nursery has been a ‘home from home’ for her which has been so reassuring to us as parents.   She has learnt so much and enjoyed many different experiences.  You all do a fantastic job!  Thanks very much.”    Karen and Paul

“Thank you so much for Heidi’s time here, she has absolutely loved coming and has never wanted to miss a day.  You all work so hard and it is shown through the pure enthusiasm that Heidi has had with coming to nursery and also how far she has come and all the things she has learnt.  Heidi is going to miss everyone here very much.  Also thank you for being understanding and always so helpful!” 

Minty and Heidi

“Just wanted to send a very heartfelt thanks to you all for looking after my two for the last seven years (overall!)!  You have been an invaluable part of our lives and this is the end of an era!  Thank you for keeping them safe and happy.  Not once did either of them not want to come to nursery.  Wishing you all lots of love…it will be very strange not doing the nursery run!”    Natalie

“It’s hard to put into words the gratitude I feel at being able to leave my boys with caring and professional staff, particularly if they have been upset, knowing that they are being cared for and cuddled and that when I pick them up they will be smiling and full of all the fun they’ve had.  As a parent I also believe you have helped me, when I have had a bad morning or been upset at leaving one of them.  You have all shown empathy, encouragement and support.  I have recommended St Ives Nursery on many occasions and will continue to give a glowing reference in relation to my experience and that of my boys.  I wish you all every success for the future.  Thank you once again for the immensely positive impact you have had on all of us.”  Ciona

“Thank you for your hard work, the wonderful care you provide and just for generally being fabulous”    The Warriners

“I’m so pleased that I chose your nursery above all of the others in the area.  I really love your nursery and all the staff you employ are amazing, they are all so friendly, happy, caring and professional.  Your nursery is a credit to you and I would always highly recommend St Ives Nursery.  Ryan has been so happy here to the point he wanted to come at weekends!  We shall both miss you and the staff.  Wishing you all the best for the future.”    Karen

“I just wanted to drop you an email to say how happy we are to have placed Georgia in the care of St Ives Nursery.  We were so nervous about her childcare arrangements before we moved to St Ives but we’re so glad that we made the decision in the end.  She seems to be progressing really well and is obviously very fond of you and your staff, they are a credit to your nursery.  She gets so excited each morning when she realises she’s arrived at nursery which makes it easier for us to leave her each day.”    Ben
