My older daughter has been at Plantos for a year and a half and my younger daughter has been going for around 6 months. Finding the right childcare makes a huge difference to the experience of returning to work after maternity leave and my girls love going to Plantos! They’ve bonded fantastically with the staff there and have made great friends. They do lots of different activities and come home every day tired but happy and full of stories.

All I can say is my daughter Harriet absolutely loves Plantos! I pick her up she’s always happy chatting away about her day all the way home. We were anxious at first because of a house move we had to relocate her at 2 yrs. We need not have been worried. The lovely staff there have helped her settle in really well catering for her little quirks. The only downside is we can match the Plantos activity packed schedule at weekends she can’t wait to get back there. A fabulous nursery for any little one xxx

My one year old attends plantos twice a week and just loves it. I used a different more well known nursery for my eldest and the difference between the two is massive.
The staff in Plantos care and are so welcoming. Making the children feel at home is priority to them and is the key to their success. My daughter always eats all of the meals as they are home cooked on site.
It's very reassuring for a working mum that she is cared for so well and supported in all her stages and milestones.
The flexibility they also show families who need additional help at times is fantastic.

I am a teacher and have always been fortunate enough to have family look after my children whilst at work. I wanted my daughter to socialise with other children before she starts mainstream nursery. I was pleased to be recommended Plantos nursery by my sister whose two boys had thrived at Plantos. My little girl attends Plantos every Friday. The staff are extremely friendly and make every child feel welcome and comfortable. Plantos is clean and organised. My little girl has a fun filled day, playing and learning. The nursery provides many activities that stimulate and engage children. The food Provided is well balanced and staff inform you of how much your child has eaten. The nursery is simply fantastic. I cannot recommend enough!

My daughter has been there since she was 10months old she is now 5 and they do pick up from school so she still attends 3 days a week and in school holidays , to catch up worth the great friends she has made.
I couldn't recommend the nursery enough .

Thank you for all the years enjoyment for my daughter.
