Chestnut Nursery is a great nursery, staff members are friendly, polite,understanding & approachable.
Before my daughter started chestnut she was very shy, Chestnut nusery has helped boost my daughter's confident, it's prepared her physically, mentally for reception. She's excited about school☺☺☺☺.
My 2 daughters attend this nursery and I am very happy with their progress here, the staff work fantastic together as a team and my children enjoy coming to the nursery.Chestnut Avenue Parent
My 2 year old son has been coming here since I started full time work in October. After having a very bad experience with another local nursery I was so worried about leaving him again - my trust levels were at their worst. My first impressions of Chestnut - very clean, bright and cheerful, well structured and professional. The staff @ Chestnut have been wonderful. They are always friendly & genuinely love working with the children. Stacey the nursery manager is very hands on. She took on all my concerns, assured me my son would be well looked after and gave me the extra time I needed to feel confident during his settling in period. They even sent me pictures of him while I was at work to show me he was fine which was lovely! Nothing was too much, my son Loves it here and they have lots for the kids to do!! He always has so much to tell me on the way home and when he talks about nursery it's with a smile on his face. :) I have complete piece of mind knowing he is in the best hands possible. Would highly recommend!Halbutt Street Parent
As a single parent letting go of my youngest child was very difficult for me. My son has never been left with anyone on his own (not even grandparents), so this was a very big deal for both me and him, the staff helped reassure me and settled him in fantastically. They are always polite, friendly and approachable, and the setting itself is very welcoming and clean. I would also like to thank the staff for the support they have given both me and my son for toilet training, which I myself have struggled with him, but after a week, his doing so well. I would strongly recommend this nursery to any parent.Parent from Halbutt Street

Before starting I never liked to leave my son at such a young age however Chestnut Nursery are so attentive in all areas of care and it really does show! Giving parents full confidence all the time! So glad I made this choice.
