Parents Views


'Toad Hall has given us first class care for almost two years. It has helped our son develop into a confident, clever and happy young man who could not be more ready for school.'

'The nursery has a happy atmosphere where the children always seem to be settled and having a good time. The building is well set out, with bright colourful rooms and the grounds are a real bonus.'

'The staff at Toad Hall offers an excellent service in the development of young children. The tuition offered is of the highest standard with the focus on fun as well as learning.'

'Toad Hall provides a safe, loving, caring and happy environment for the children. It has a strong management team which has always given me a sense of confidence that my children's best interests were always put first.'

'My daughter was made to feel very welcome and included from the first day she started. It has been very reassuring to drop her off in such a friendly, happy and stimulating environment. I have been particularly impressed by the building, facilities and freshly made meals.'

'Both of my children have encountered so many fantastic people during our time with you at Toad Hall as well as being very well cared for but most importantly they have been very happy which is worth its weight in gold and a huge weight off our minds whilst we have been at work'

'Whilst it is difficult as a working parent to leave your child, it was made easier at Toad Hall because you always knew that they were having lots of fun doing activities and playing outside and were generally  exhausted at the end of the day! Both my boys have grown in confidence and have become much more sociable with other children.'
