    "The staff are just amazing"

    "My little one absolutely loves going to nursery, she is always so happy and the staff are just amazing, they are all so caring and understanding, they always do fun things and always make sure the children are always well looked after and always filter to each individual child’s needs. I am always informed of any sort of little accident and always informed when we get to have days where we come into the nursery to have some fun days with them. They always make sure they are happy."

    "Really lovely nursery and a great team of carers/educators"

    "Really lovely nursery and a great team of carers/educators. It feels very warm and inviting whilst also very much like early education. We get updates throughout the day about all the activities the kids are up to and how this ties into their development. We were at a different nursery prior to this and immediately noticed the difference once we transferred to Choochoos Day Nursery - in the atmosphere of the nursery, the interaction with parents, the types of things the children were doing and also the happiness of our child who seems to really love it there. Highly recommend."

    "The staff team are always so happy, helpful and enthusiastic"

    "Choochoos Day Nursery is an excellent nursery because it caters to the individual needs of each child. The variety of activities available each day are both engaging and stimulating. My child is encouraged in all areas from singing, dancing, painting, drawing, role play and outdoor play. I love the fact that my child can choose whether to play indoors or outdoors. The food offered is excellent. The staff team are always so happy, helpful and enthusiastic. Thank you."

    Helping pay for your childcare

    Understandably, the cost of day nursery can put many familiesoff choosing it as an option. But there are a range of Government schemes open to parents that can make nursery affordable and we will do everything we can to help you understand the choices and access the funding that you might be eligible for.

    Tax-Free Childcare  – For working families earning under £100k and at least £131 per week (equal to 16 hours at the National Minimum or Living Wage) each who aren’t receiving Tax Credits, Universal Credit or childcare vouchers.

    15 hours and 30 hours Funded Childcare  – For many working parents of 2 year olds, and 3 – 4 year olds for 38 weeks each year.
