    "A home from home"

    "My twins started nursery at 9 months old and they love it. I can really see their independence shining through after they've been and they are always babbling more. The nursery treats them as two separate babies and really takes into our account our routine and makes it a home from home. They get so much out of their day at nursery from art, to messy play and getting outside whatever the weather. The staff regularly update the app too so we can see what they've been getting up to."

    "I have been very happy with the facilities"

    "My son loves his nursery and never wants to come home, he is also very eager to go to nursery and can get very emotional during half terms. I have never had anything to moan about and my son was very upset when I explained he would be going to a new school soon. Overall, I have been very happy with the facilities, staff and the care for my child."

    "I would most definitely recommend Choochoos Day Nursery"

    "My daughter has attended this nursery since she was 9-months-old, she has transitioned from the baby room to the main room.
    She enjoys going to every session and always has fun with her friends learning and playing. I have seen a real difference in her speech and confidence since she has been going to nursery, I would most definitely recommend Choochoos Day Nursery to any parent."

    Simple and straight-forward

    Our nurseries have many outstanding and unique qualities that you’ll want to see and experience for yourself.

    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.
