    I can't recommend The Manse enough. My son started here in January and my daughter went here 10 years ago. A lot of the same staff are working there which is obviously a very good sign and was nice to see. My son absolutely loves going to Nursery. The staff are brilliant and look after all his needs.
    We receive plenty of feedback and the communication between staff and parents is great both face to face and also by notifications on the phone app which securely has regular updates on it. The nursery is always spotless and the variety of meals is good with lots of healthy meals. My son has a liking for a whole range of different meals which has been helped by this. When I go to pick my son up it is very noticeable that all the children are given a great deal of attention and everyone is treated really well. This is definitely a fun and safe environment for your child to go and make friends and learn lots of new things. Thank you to all the staff for the superb job you do.

    The Manse is the best! I can’t recommend the staff and facilities highly enough. My youngest is almost 3 and loves being there. In the holidays she asks to go every day. My 7-year-old son is Autistic, I moved him here from another nursery as a toddler - the level of care and knowledge around his specific
    needs were unrivalled. My eldest, now 11 went to a different nursery and hated it. He still struggles now with school anxiety whereas my younger 2 love it. I truly believe this is down to the quality of care provided at The Manse. The early years are so so important. Your kids feeling nurtured, safe and respected as their own little individual self is fundamental in laying down the foundation for their further emotional, social and physical development as well as their future academic education. The Manse ticks all the boxes and above all else is filled with happy little people who want to go to nursery and to top it off, it’s excellent value in comparison to other settings in the area

    A warm comfortable environment that makes it feels like a home. The rooms are thoughtfully decorated with cosy quiet areas, eating areas and play area so know there’s room for all my daughters needs. Staff are well trained and professional. They take a genuine interest in my daughters including what
    they do outside of the nursery. They all know their names even though they are in different rooms and my girls are comfortable with all members. I choose this nursery due to how much it felt like a family. I couldn’t have done it without them. The activities always spark tea time conversation and our toddler enjoys telling us about the toys and games and the youngest enjoys showing us song actions all of which the manse has taught them. The outdoor space is great and they encourage outdoor play. They teach a range of topics including key dates - Chinese New Year, Easter, Halloween, Diwali. When needed They helped with weaning, toilet training and independent skills such as eating.
