What Our Parents Say

My daughter loves it at this nursery. They are very aware of development and learning without the stress of forced targets (this put me off other nurseries).

The choice of toys, outdoor play and activities are brilliant for all ages and I love the fact that all the children mix and aren't kept separate all day. The children have constant opportunities to develop skills. My daughter has come on loads since joining.
The food is fabulous and they also support baby led weaning which was another reason I went with the nursery.

I'm always kept up to date with everything that goes on during the day and my daughter naps really well. She loves all the staff and even sang the manager's name to the tune of twinkle twinkle this morning on our way there!

After taking our daughter to another nursery first and not being happy with them, we came across Growing Minds Nursery and from the minute we met the Manager and she showed us around, we could tell they were miles ahead of the competition; wish we had come to Growing Minds first!

All the staff are very friendly and professional, and our daughter really enjoys going here. It's such a weight off our minds not having to worry about leaving her for the day, knowing she is in such good hands.

The nursery also provides you with an app, which provides you with regular updates of food eaten, naps taken, photos, etc. which is great.

Would highly recommend Growing Minds to anyone!

My son has attended Growing Minds Montessori Childcare since he was 4 months old. He is now 3.5 years old and he absolutely loves his time at the setting! The staff have been fantastic, the communication has always been second to none, lots of photos and updates about his day which really puts my mind at ease. He has learnt so much especially during his time in pre school with his teacher Janet who he never stops talking about!

He has delicious home cooked food every day, and is always taking part in a wide range of activities and learning so many new skills. I feel like the setting has definitely got my little boy ready for school in September and I thank the team so much for their involvement in his early years.

Highly recommended!
