Our child has been coming to Poppy's since she's been a year old.
She's had excellent care in both Babies and Toddlers and has formed really strong bonds with those looking after her. She's always coming home singing the songs from Nursery and is always excited to tell us what she's been doing with her friends. Her key workers are very kind and patient and I feel very pleased with how she's progressed since being at Poppy's
We are so pleased we chose Poppys for our two boys when we moved back to the area - both boys settled into nursery life so quickly and really do enjoy their Nursery days!
From day one all members of staff have taken the time to get to know us as a family - they know our children's strengths and weaknesses inside out and how best to encourage them with their learning adventures. The learning resources in both the indoor and outdoor facilities are great too - our boys especially love the outdoor area and exploring the gardens!
Both units have a welcoming, friendly and homely feel to them - everyone is always cheerful and are always on hand to offer advice if needed.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Poppys to any of our family and friends!
Our child has been enrolled with Poppy's nursery for two years since turning one. We have therefore had experience of both environments offered by the nursery and have met many of the current staff.
We have been very happy with the development of our child in all of the age grouped rooms. The transition from toddlers to pre school was difficult for our child who got upset on being dropped off in the morning. This period lasted only a short time as the staff were very understanding and helpful in encouraging our child to focus on having fun and joining in with friends that the apprehension of being separated from us was quickly forgotten.
The staff are friendly, caring and work hard to understand each individual child's needs so that they feel safe and happy to learn and grow through play.
We enjoy reading about her time with Poppy's in the learning journey books that get sent home and also the newsletter and blog that has recently been started.
Mr & Mrs O
Great Nursery, all 3 of my children have been to Poppy's and I would highly recommend it as a childcare provider.
Our son started in Poppys Baby Unit in February 2017 at the age of 15 months and immediately the staff made us feel very welcome. Our son loves going to Poppys and we are seeing a significant improvement in his eating habits and interaction with others. We couldn't be more pleased and would fully recommend Poppys to other parents! -
We are moving to France and one of the hardest things is to take our daughter out of her beloved Baby Unit at Poppy's. Thank you so much everyone, she clearly loved it there.
Every morning she would get out of her high chair after breakfast and walk straight to the front door keen to get out and to her friends at Poppy's. She would arrive at the Baby Unit with an enthusiastic knock on the door. All the staff have been amazing. Our daughter walks in and runs towards them with a giggle and open arms for a hug.
Forever grateful. It is just too bad I cant make you all move to France with us!!
I would recommend Poppy's Baby Unit as a safe, welcoming and supportive environment. Our daughter has had a wonderful time there.
When I walked into Poppy's I just had a great feeling. The staff were friendly and experienced and provided education yet fun activities. The garden is fantastic and I like the fact they take the children out on little outings. They also are very accommodating and flexible with your needs should plans change. My daughter looks forward to going every week. Thanks Poppy's!
Our Daughter has attended Poppy's Nursery from the age of one and we are delighted at the level of care and support she has received from the start. She has developed from a shy toddler into a confident outgoing girl, all due to the professionalism and hard work from all the staff. She absolutely adores her key worker and comes home each day with tales of what she has learnt and the fun that she's had with he friends and carers.
The staff are very confident in their work and give daily feedback on how out daughter is progressing and learning.
Having hit a difficult time as a family, Katherine and her team have gone above and beyond to support us and our daughter when we needed it most. We shall be forever grateful and appreciative of the level of care and kindness shown. We strongly believe our daughter has had the best start in her pre-school years at Poppy's and would highly recommend to any parents.
I have been very impressed with Poppy's. It's a very caring and loving environment for children. I have noticed a massive difference in my son's development since he started attending. He has gained in confidence, good manners, the ability to share, and to be considerate to others. I can see that a lot of the positive aspects of his character have come directly from the interactions he has every day at Poppy's.
