We can’t speak highly enought of small talk. All the members of staff are incredible. They really make an effort to get to know the children’s personality and what they need to progress. We moved both are children here from a nursery because we didn’t feel the children were progressing enough and we are so glad we did. We noticed a difference nearly straight away. When our daughter was due to start school the staff were amazing at getting her ready for the big step. A perfect preschool

We changed To Small Talk Nursery In September 2018 from another preschool in the local area.

Our children were unsettled in the previous school. From the moment we visited Small Talk to now we have seen a huge change in our children. They have settled, happy to go to preschool and thriving.

The staff have also been very supportive to myself.

I highly recommend this nursery / preschool to anyone.

Our son attends Small Talk and has done since 2 years old. He has grown so much there in many ways. I wasn't sure how he would settle being away from us, being a clingy baby and toddler, but I'm amazed at how well he did. The staff here are just absolutely brilliant and we couldn't be more grateful to have this setting so close to our home. He has now been attending for a year, we have never had any issues with him being there and he has always been excited about going. We have access to Tapestry where they post all the fun things our son has been up to and we love it! They are extremely attentive and respect what we do at home to help with things such as toileting. The children always seem happy as do the staff. It is nice to see the ladies genuinely proud of the children and loving what they do. I wouldn't have chosen anywhere else for our little boy and we will definitely be sending our future child here when they're old enough. Thank you to everyone at Small Talk you are all amazing!

SmallTalk is not just a home away from home environment, They are a family away from home! They have been a fantastic support throughout the process of getting my daughter,who suffered extreme separation anxiety, to attend without a fight everyday! Because of their effort and hard work, above and beyond any expectations, my daughter has the opportunity to get a preschool education and more importantly some friends. I spent 10 weeks attending the pre school with my daughter and witness first hand how well cared for and happy the children are. I would highly recommend SmallTalk, the past few months have seen a huge change in my daughters confidence, one which without the help, encourage and support of Carrie, Kirsty and their team we would never have seen and we are thankful for all the hard work!

We have used Smalltalk now for the last few years and have nothing but praise for under 2's and pre school, and also holiday club. My son is now at school but regularly tells us he would rather be at Smalltalk, and loves going to the holiday club, and my daughter is in the under 2's and has settled in really well and we feel that she benefits from the attention she gets in a smaller group. The staff are really friendly and we always find them very helpful if we need any advice over anything. All in all, I feel I can go to work and the children are happy and having a nice time at Smalltalk.
