"A very successfully run Nursery. Staff are superb and I have always recommended Highwood House to friends and family."

"Excellent Nursery, very flexible and wonderful with my child, would highly recommend it."

"Practitioners use planning to choose appropriate next steps and offer independent, guided and spontaneous activities as well as adult and child led activities." “All children are observed and these observations are fed straight back into the planning to provide activities that build on children’s interests and life experiences.” (Ofsted report 2009)

"Children enter the nursery with enthusiasm and excitement and are eager to play with each other." “Staff are genuinely pleased to see children and provide a very warm welcome. Children jump into their arms as they arrive, settling in confidently as they talk about their weekend.” (Ofsted report 2009)

"Our daughter is very happy at Nursery and we are very pleased with the care she gets. She is becoming a really confident, chatty little girl."

"I’m really pleased with how my son has settled in. Staff are always friendly and helpful. It’s very reassuring to know that I don’t have to worry about how my son is getting on at Nursery. If I have worried it’s nice that there’s a friendly voice on the other end of the phone."

"Highwood House is an excellent nursery. We plan for our second child to attend the nursery and would not hesitate to recommend it to friends."

"Very happy with the interaction and development my child is getting. A very happy environment."

"Thank you so much for giving our son such a wonderful year and a half. He has really enjoyed coming to Highwood house and will miss coming here and seeing you all and all the great friends he has made. I could not have asked for anything more- you have all been fantastic."
