My son has ASD and needs extra support and can be very challenging. Sandhills Day Nursery has provided him with all the help he needs to develop social skills his ability to communicate, his behaviour and understanding of his emotions. The team there are friendly, helpful and supportive. It was most certainly the right choice for my son and we are all very happy with Sandhills Day Nursery.

Everyone is friendly and approachable
Daisy is happy and comfortable at Sandhills Nursery. Everyone is friendly and approachable. We have always felt involved in her development at nursery and well informed. Being at the nursery for the past 3 ½ years has certainly helped Daisy in her development.

Overall great nursery!
My daughter has been attending Sandhills day nursery since April 2015 she is going to be 3 this month I would fully recommend Sandhills. It took around 6 months for her to fully settle and get used to it all but now really enjoys going and coming home to tell us about what she's been doing. They have a great, thought out menu which all meals are provided. Lovely ladies that are very helpful and supportive with parents and child's needs. Overall great nursery!

Is a lovely intimate nursery
Sandhills Barnt Green is a lovely intimate nursery. It's small size is a benefit; staff know all the children by name and all the children get to interact with each other, both older and younger, at times during the day. The environment is very home-like and all the children are happy, secure and stimulated. We visited a lot of local nurseries before choosing Sandhills and I continue to feel we made exactly the right choice. Our son thrives there; developing great social skills, confidence and a love of singing rhymes!

Really professional
I have experienced lots of different nurseries and Sandhills Barnt Green nails it. It is small enough that the staff really know and care about the kids but still really professional.

Her speech is developing really well
Sandhills is great with my daughter. They settled her in beautifully and always keep her occupied. And she loves the dinners they make, she never comes home hungry and she's made plenty of friends. Her speech is developing really well since she has been there.

Hardworking and dedicated staff
Amazing nursery! Hardworking and dedicated staff who provide a caring, welcoming and rich learning environment. My children didn't settle in their previous nursery, however they get excited about going and seeing their amazing key-workers!

It's been worth every penny spent
My daughter has been there 2 years now and enjoys every day to the point she asks me now, when is it time for school!? (she means nursery, I call it school) She's come on leaps and bounds and I can only praise the staff there as to helping her over the last two years. It's been worth every penny spent. When the time comes for my daughter to go to school it will be a sad time for us leaving Sandhills nursery.

Lovely family atmosphere
Two of my children attended Sandhills nursery and at both times I cannot thank the staff enough for the things they did for my children. Very dedicated staff, always with a smile on the face, lovely family atmosphere. :)

An excellent nursery
Really excellent nursery, with very professional staff. I was apprehensive as I have had a bad experience sending my 2 year old to a different nursery before, but I really shouldn't have been. Staff are all very warm and friendly and excellent with the children. My son comes home with things he has made whilst beening there, which is great because they do a lot of messy, crafty things (saves my house getting so messy) :-) Also there is a fabulous garden area with sandpit and lots of other things for the children to do and explore. They keep you updated on what your child has been up to and if they have any concerns etc. Excellent staff and venue, resulting in an excellent nursery.

Thank you for caring
Putting Charlie into nursery was a big step for me , the moment I walked through the door I automatically felt comfortable and knew Charlie would be happy and well cared for of which he certainly is. Thank you for caring for Charlie and ensuring he is kept safe and happy while I am at work.

Wouldn't of chose any other nursery
Sandhills nursery is a fantastic nursery and my daughter has grown so much confidence since she's been going since sept 2015. My daughter has grown the confidence to talk a lot more, she interacts with kids a lot more and is learning more and more each time she's there. Wouldn't of chose any other nursery. Definitely recommend this nursery.

The staff are amazing
I was making the biggest decision of my life, who do I leave my baby daughter with before I go back to work! I visited many nurseries to see who we was both comfortable with... Sandhills ticked all the boxes. They offered settling in hours / days, and are very welcoming. The hours suited us perfectly as I didn't need a full day. They help me when I need more hours or days and it's never to much trouble. The staff are amazing and so happy to see all children. They comfort them when needed and also teach them manners.

Would definitely recommend Sandhills
My little girl started Sandhills last year there were a few weeks of her crying and being unsettled which made me sad, but the ladies there are all amazing and soon settled her they are all so kind and my child absolutely loves them all, they also help with the potty training etc can't praise them enough. Would definitely recommend Sandhills to other parents wanting somewhere safe and caring to send their children.

It's been wonderful journey
My little girl leaves Sandhills after 4 happy years. I have to say the care has been outstanding throughout. Consistency in nursery staff, activities and efforts made to nurture the children has been at the highest level in all the key stages, from the baby room upwards. It's been wonderful journey and a massive thanks for all you have done for Arabella.

Welcoming atmosphere
Friendly staff and welcoming atmosphere within whole nursery, both of my children go to this nursery and I have never had a problem with anything there. They always have great parent partnership and always care for the children in the best way they can.
