"A really great example of when a nursery is done properly!""The staff at Mottershead nursery are fantastic! My 7-month-old has been at the nursery for 2 months and loves it. I chose this nursery because my eldest child attended for 3 years and loved it also so there was no doubt in my mind to send my 2nd child here. All the staff care about your child and also you as the parent. They really are an extension to the family! I can't fault them. The communication is brilliant, the care and activities are brilliant, the food is brilliant and varied. A really great example of when a nursery is done properly!"
"She is always in good spirits when we pick her up""Our daughter loves to go to Mottershead Drive nursery. The staff made her feel welcome from the start. They listen to her and take her seriously in her wishes, if possible. She is always in good spirits when we pick her up. We know that the staff would call us immediately if something was not right. This is very reassuring. Mottershead Drive is a smaller nursery than the other ones in the area, so if you are after a nursery with a family feel, where everyone knows your child and you by name, then you are right at Mottershead Drive."
"The best nursery in Gloucester!""All the staff are amazing and supportive. Communication has always been brilliant, I remember ringing after every drop-off for the first couple of weeks just to 'check in'. They were always happy to chat and assured me he was fine. As a parent, you have access to an app where you can see various information about their day but most importantly photos! Each day they do a varied amount of activities and also get the opportunity to play outside. The staff also take the time to focus on each child's interests as individuals too. The food always smells lush and the staff regularly tell me he asks for more! My son is currently being toilet trained and they have been great with supporting him. I couldn't be prouder of the little boy he's becoming and nursery are a huge part of this! I owe all the staff a big thank you but a special thanks to his current key worker and the manager. You are all a part of our family and we will be extremely sad to leave next year! The best nursery in Gloucester!"
