Word for word written testimonials from some of our parents.

Sandhills is child centered and that is the most important thing.
As my daughter Lily is now 10 and I have Joshua at nursery. I have seen your early days and how it is today. There was no choice to make when choosing a nursery for Joshua, although it was 8 years on. Sandhills is child centered and that is the most important thing. I always recommend if anyone asks. Thank you all.

Thank you for all the care, kindness and support
Thank you for all the care, kindness and support you have shown to our daughter during her time with you. She has loved it and you have helped prepare her for big girl school. She’s already looking forward to popping back to pick up Isaac and tell you all about her adventures!

Absolutely outstanding nursery
Absolutely outstanding nursery, childcare is first class. Staff are really personable and each child is treated as an individual, I really can't rate them high enough. They have helped develop my child at every stage and they have listened and provided support throughout his time there.

The nursery is a welcoming place, home from home
I have previously used this nursery for my daughter and now using for my son. The nursery is a welcoming place, home from home. The staff are all friendly and helpful. You know your child is in safe hands here. They are outstanding in their Ofsted report and it really shows. I wouldn’t consider anywhere else.

She is a well rounded happy individual
Words escape me to express my sincere gratitude for how you have looked after and developed Eden. She is a well rounded happy individual and that's a real credit to you all, as she has been with you since she was 5 months old and you have made such an impact.

You have supported her brilliantly on a very special early journey
I can’t believe the time has come for our little girl to leave nursery. Thank you to everyone for everything you have done. You have supported her brilliantly on a very special early journey – from learning to crawl and talk to now confidently running, playing, building and mark-making!! Thank you also for helping her to develop socially and emotionally. With your help she is a very confident little girl who is now able to build relationships well with other children. She has had a fantastic few years here at Sandhills and I know she will miss you all very much (as will we!).

We feel that she has thrived with this approach
We have been delighted with the care provided to Annabel over the last 3 years. There appears to be the right balance of care, learning , fun and discipline. We feel that she has thrived with this approach.

She has loved every minute of her time there
Thank you so much for everything you have done over the last year for our daughter. She has developed amazingly under your care, and she has loved every minute of her time there. I know she will miss nursery but thanks to your continued hard work she will be prepared to take the next step.

friendly staff that know all the children
Sandhills has helped take the stress out of returning to work, from the settling in, the friendly staff that know all the children, to the activities they take part in. The eyLog app helps you feel included in what they are up to and catching up with his progress at parents evening is great. They are also really good at trying to accommodate if you need extra days cover.

I couldn’t ever imagine her going anywhere else
My daughter's been going to Sandhills since February 2017 when she was 6 months old and I couldn’t ever imagine her going anywhere else, She is reaching all her goals for her age group and Sandhills have definitely played a massive part in this. There’s a lovely atmosphere and all the staff are friendly and helpful. I trust them completely and they are doing a brilliant job. I would recommend Sandhills to everybody!

The menu choice is great
The menu choice is great Millie is often more keen to try new foods at nursery and will eat veg that she wont eat at home. Millie also talks about exercise she has been doing outside'

They have learnt so much at Sandhills
My twins were only 6 months old when they started, only just eating solids. Now look at them! Starting school in September. They have learnt so much at Sandhills, much more than we could ever have done at home with them. They have enjoyed themselves – never wanting to come home! Thank you.

treated with care and affection since she started at the end of 2015
I have used Sandhills over the last 9 years for my 2 children and have been consistently pleased with their care. My daughter is currently in her last year there before starting school in September 2018. She has always enjoyed her time there and been treated with care and affection since she started at the end of 2015. She has a dairy allergy and Sandhills have gone out of their way to cater to her requirements, adapting the lunch menu and ordering specific dairy free foods where necessary.

The staff have always been professional and caring and we would highly recommend Sandhills to anyone looking for nursery care.

I don't feel worried about leaving him there at all
Sandhills Day Nursery is such a lovely nursery to leave my son, I don't feel worried about leaving him there at all. They follow through with their procedures, the staff are friendly and approachable! Day rate isn't too high either! I would recommend this nursery to any friend or family member. The menu for the children is also brilliant, my son really enjoys his meals.
