Parent Reviews

  • "Our child has been at the nursery for a year and loves it, as do we. There is great attention to detail, which makes it feel like a genuinely loving, homely environment. But the best thing about the nursery is the staff. They always seem happy to be there, and like they really care about the children. 
    We can't recommend the nursery highly enough and have been reminded what an exceptional environment it is now that we are leaving the area and having to look at new nurseries, none of which feel half as good as here."

  • "I highly recommend The Grove Nursery, and I'm so thrilled with the love, care, education and nurturing that my son has received over the past year. Despite wanting the best for our child, we were new to the country so it was of utmost importance to research our options and make the right decision, but what gave us all the confidence we needed was the gut feeling we experienced on the tour and in the first month. Our son received the best support during this major transition (post covid, new country, new nursery), we couldn't be happier and he is just thriving. The engagement between educators/staff and the children is brilliant, and to me, this is what has stood out the most."
