    "The staff are very supportive"

    "My little boy absolutely loves nursery and has such lovely relationships with different members of staff. The staff are very supportive, attentive and they really do care about all of the children that are with them. I was always apprehensive about sending my child to nursery so early on, but seeing him meet milestones and thriving because of the opportunities he’s provided with at nursery makes it all worth it. I highly recommend The Avenues Montessori Nursery!"

    "I highly recommend this room/nursery"

    "Today my daughter, Pippa aged 7 months started in the baby room of the Avenues. I was very nervous as i had not left her before with anyone other then family. Also due to her age, i was concerned she was going to be very hard work. However Pippa had a brillaint first morning. The girls assured me that they loved having her and told me all the lovely things she had done. When i picked Pippa up she had the biggest smile on her face and was laughing at a staff member. I left the nursery with a lovely warm feeling in my heart and genuinely cannot thank the girls enough. The girls are a lovely team and I highly recommend this room/nursery."

    "The place is always clean and presentable"

    "My little girl loves nursery, the staff are all lovely there, never had any problems, my boy used to love it here too that’s why my little girl now goes here highly recommend. My little girl enjoys the hot meals for lunch, the place is always clean and presentable."
