The best nursery

My daughter loves this nursery,so do I. Great team and management, always flexible, always happy to help. My daughter was non english speaking child when she started nursery,the team done everything to help her with english language. I will not count how many trips she is had from the nursery including colchester zoo, stick man trail etc. She can not wait to start her forest school. She loves phonics lessons and jo jingles weekly visits. Children spend lots of time outside which she loves. There is no better place to start your child journey then yumbo.

Amazing childminders

My son attended Little Gigglers from 2019-2020. From the very beginning it was evident how amazing the care was going to be by Donna and Graeme as my son warmed to them both instantly . Their home accommodated all of his learning and care needs perfectly with lots of space and resources for his time there. Hugo always looked forward to his time there and especially enjoyed all of the days out that were planned on different occasions. I always felt at ease that my son was in the best hands whenever he was left in Donna and Graeme’s care . Hugo’s development come on leaps and bounds in the time he was cared for and this was always recorded and accessible for me to view through an app on my phone to view what actives / any additional information throughout the day.
Communication with Donna and Graeme was always easy and they were always very accommodating to work with my shift patterns at the time or even on occasion had Hugo for me if I had taken ill, this kind of support was always very appreciated.
I couldn’t recommend a better place for anyone looking for childcare and I think that their influences on Hugo have been invaluable . Hugo now sees both Donna and Graeme on his way to school and although he is not now in attendance of their care , he will always run to catch up / talk to them both and I think that shows how amazing they are to make such a lasting impression years later . They treat Hugo like he was one of their own and I will always be grateful for their amazing care and the start they gave him in his learning .

Caring, professional, proactive

Larysa has been taking care of our son from the time he was about 4 months old until today (1 year old). I strongly recommend her.
She's highly professional, punctual, with an excellent work ethic. She's proactive, always thinking ahead on what our son needs or might need, and always willing to help. She's excellent at listening and communicating: you won't have to repeat yourself to her, but also she's great at communicating and managing relationships with nursery staff, etc.
More importantly, she's lovely with our son and our son loves her.
Strongly recommended

Lovely environment

Very pleasant environment for children. Daily updates of activities. My little one is enjoying the playing and being outside with other children. There is a daily messy play session where he experiences new things and it’s a perfect work out for the little brains. The staff is very helpful and have incredible attitude towards teaching. I would highly recommend this nursery.

Peek a boo nursery

My son goes to this nursery and enjoys going! He does loads of different activities which helped his learning and since him going to this nursery he has come on so well with his learning and his confidence. The staff are so lovely and are always to speak to and reassure myself when my son is at nursery. He loves the outside area to play aswell as the visitors ( fire engine ) which came to visit the nursery. The manager and staff are amazing and my little boy loves going into nursery and seeing them, they have such a good relationship between them all.

Overall Experience

A year now since two of my children have attended Peek A Boo Day Care, and I’m still if not more over the moon to have chosen this nursery. My children are thriving, happy and growing in confidence every day and I’m so thankful for each and every member of staff there. They have worked hard through the pandemic to make each one of those children safe and still met milestones within my children’s development

An excellent professional yet a home like setup

Louise (Lu) and Roy are perfect that I have been looking for in a childminder. My daughter Aaradhya was 14 months when we started at Lu in October 2021, as you can imagine, this was a hugely anxious time, as she had very little contact with other children or adults prior to this point due to COVID. I was torn between nursery and a childminder. After a short conversation with a few people locally, and after speaking to Lu and Roy, we knew this was the right place for her. Because of being a pampered Covid baby, Aaradhya was not easy to settle from first day she went. But Lu was fantastic in helping her settle. She went above and beyond and constantly posted photos/ videos up so we can see how she is doing. Lu helped her settle with patience and gave us as many settling sessions as we needed. She creates a fun and educational environment and is very attentive to development opportunities and logs these, so I never feel I miss out on important milestones. They’re very educational and fun. In a very short amount of time of attending here Aaradhya is already able to do so much more. She began walking, she can draw on a piece of paper, and confidently climb on and off of toys and stairs, can eat independently and is soo good at table etiquettes. She couldn’t do all this before, and I feel I couldn't have taught her all this better. I’m so excited for Aaradhya’s future at this fantastic setting. Lu and Roy are both very kind, patient and fantastic childminders. I am very glad and lucky that we found them. I’ll always be grateful for how lovely they both are.

I look forward to all of the other sweet things she is going to learn and do here in the future. Thanks for making this so easy.

Fantastic young lady

Chloe is a kind, nuturing, mature and courteous young lady. Great communication throughout and our children thoroughly enjoyed their time with her. Fun to be around and really connected with the kids. Great at all the practical stuff too - making sure they were behaved and in bed on time etc
Thank you so much Chloe 😊

Be wary of this childminder

We were initially keen to use Maria as our childminder, however be aware in her contract she expects full pay not only for her and your annual leave, but also for her ‘occasional days off’. As this point in the contract was vague I asked if she could clarify, in her response she then said she no longer had availability as a child in her care needed an extra day. She had only just taken our son for an initial settling session.

Exceptional

Avril is a wonderful childminder. She is kind, patient and caring. My son was very anxious when I first left him and Avril was so understanding and patient with him. His speech has developed ten fold which I can only attribute to Avril. I couldn’t recommend Avril and her expertise enough and would give 10 stars if I could! Avril will send me
photos and videos of him playing and I love seeing him so happy with the other children and in a safe and clean environment.

Amazing

My daughter has been going to Shining stars for a year and a half. From the initial visit me, my daughter and Jane clicked. Jane has been amazing with lilia and her development, she had come on loads and lilia loves going every day to see Jane and her friends. I am a single parent and have no family around me and Jane has been amazing at supporting me and lilia and has been flexible with childcare arrangements. Jane's setting is like home from home and I wouldn't want to take lilia anywhere else. Would recommend Jane over and over to anyone.
