Our son attended Daisies Montessori from January 2015 to July 2016. He enjoyed his time and made his first best friend there. We liked the fact that he was able to pursue his interests such as learning about animals and discovering the world. He is still very passionate about countries in his new school! The owner is passionate about bringing the best to the children in her care. We are convinced that we have been given a very good start to our son's education and we are happy to recommend this preschool to everyone!

My daughter left this nursery in July 2015. She loved her time here and so did I. In fact 8 of my 9 children have attended here and I can't wait for the fun to begin all over again when I plan to enrol my youngest child in the spring. My children, all very different in character, have all flourished at this wonderful little nursery school. My first child was so reluctant to leave me but the care and dedication of the staff were clear as they comforted both him and me by a reassuring phone call to let me know all was well.
I believe wholeheartedly in the Montessori method of education and it certainly set my children in good stead for starting primary school when the time came. Some of my children had only just turned 4 when they started primary, yet thanks to this great start they seemed prepared! A high point for our family has always been the Christmas production and the summer sports day. All in all a home from home atmosphere with fantastic quality educating.

My son is a very active 3-year-old who needed a lot more variety in his day than watching his mum clean the house! Daisies has been the perfect place for him. Since starting at the school last autumn he's found interest in so many new things and generally LOVES being at school. The staff are very attentive and are always cheery and absolutely wonderful to work with. My older two boys attended pre-school as well, but I'm not sure they ever got the level of attention and care that my littlest does on a daily basis. He really enjoys Daisies and I'm really glad to have found you!

The team, ethos and supportive environment at Daisies is very heart warming. The new manager and owner have taken my sons’ additional needs (he has Down's Syndrome) completely in their stride. The fabulous staff actually embrace the new skills, including sign language, to the benefit of all the children and my son has become a very confident and chatty little boy who loves his key worker and the whole school experience. The sensory based learning is perfect for a child who is more practical than naturally academic and he has blossomed. I really cannot rate them highly enough.

My son has attended this nursery for a little over a year. Daisies was the third nursery we looked at and was by far the most superior. My son and I were both impressed with the quiet, calm atmosphere and the independence all the children exhibited. We adore the caring staff and I am impressed with the changes the new management has brought. I always recommend this nursery to anyone who asks and we will miss the Daisies family when my son goes to Reception next year.

My son started in this nursery 3 years ago, after being at a different nursery. We have seen the changes in his behaviour and his learning improved greatly. I always find the team pleasant and extremely helpful. They made us feel welcome as they are approachable and easy to talk to. Obviously we chose to send our daughter too. We have always been happy with everything and we have seen many improvements since the new owner and the new manager took over last year. We didn't know about the Montessori education until we sent our children here but we wouldn't go back to another kind of pre-school. My son was an active outdoor child and we like the fact that he was always allowed to be outside whatever the weather. We feel it's a home from home environment where the staff are caring and give cuddles. They helped our children to settle quickly.

This was the best thing I could ever do for my son. He has improved and grown so much just by going to the nursery. The staff are amazing, they work with the children and they teach them how to be independent. The nursery is not just about playing with cheap plastic toys, it is about teaching them how to learn.

I'm very impressed by the calm atmosphere and the gentleness of the staff. The room is well equipped and the Montessori curriculum truly embraced. I appreciate the small number of children and parents are well included.
