Word for word written testimonials from some of our parents.

You’ve made such a difference
Thank you…. For holding my hand, for wiping my noise, for picking me up when I trip on my toes. For teaching me things like how, what and why, for holding me tight when I just have to cry, for playing with me and guiding me too, for all of those things, I’m grateful to you. A teacher is known for the lives that they touch, you’ve made such a difference so thank you SO MUCH!
– Love from Holly, Rachel and Glenn

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.

We are so grateful for the love, care and learning
The end of an era – you’ve been like part of our family for the last 6 years. We are so grateful for the love, care and learning you’ve given to our children – we’ll miss you!

Thank you for your patience and kindness
Thank you for your patience and kindness when settling us in when mommy returned to work and for all the messy, fun and laughter along the way whilst watching us grow (nothing has been too much trouble). Thank you for remembering our ‘best bits’ and telling Mommy. We will miss you. Hugs and cuddles.

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.

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.

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!).

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.
– Rachel Smith
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.

Such an outstanding nursery
Our grateful thanks to you and your wonderful team for helping Millie and her Nanny and Grandad through recent sad events. Coming into Nursery we always felt we were enveloped by such care and compassion from everyone we met. Millie has been so lucky to attend such an outstanding nursery and we are sure it has prepared her well for ‘Big School!’ Tom and I will miss our chats but all of you will remain in our hearts and memories.
– Much Love,  Jeanne and Tom

You all do such an amazing job
Thank you so much for doing such an amazing job looking after Riley! I have seen him become so confident and sociable since coming to Nursery and everyday I’m shocked at there’s something new he has learnt. You all do such an amazing job and we will miss Riley having so much fun at Nursery. Thank You!

You have all played a key role in him
Just want to say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who has been part of Nirmaljots early years of education. He has flourished and grown into a confident little boy and I am very pleased with him. You have all played a key role in him achieving this. He has thoroughly enjoyed coming to Nursery and made a lot of good memories and enjoyed his time here. Thank you again. 
– Nimaljot and Mum
Fantastic care and attention of the staff
The one thing that we have ALWAYS loved about Nursery is the fantastic care and attention of the staff – we have felt like every single person knows, cares and has Seb’s very best interest at heart – you all somehow make us feel like he is as important to you as he is to us. He is well prepared  for school (more so than us) and we are so unbelievably grateful to you all. A very heartfelt thank you.
– Claudine, Iain and Seb
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'
