What Parents Say About Our Nursery

We hope you’ll find these comments about our nursery useful...

"I have been delighted with the care both my children have received at Silchester Manor since joining from another nursery. The team who care for the children are fantastic and clearly enjoy their jobs within the nursery; they are always actively involved with the children and are never just hanging around waiting for the children to be collected; something we have experienced in the past! Both my children love coming into nursery every day which is a huge relief for us as working parents; we know they are receiving the best possible care they can have away from the home environment. I would like to thank you and all the team for making our whole family happier!"  
Helen Donnelly

"I cannot speak highly enough of the care Masie receives at Silchester Manor. Masie loves going to nursery and enjoys all of the many activities that are on offer on a daily basis. I would always recommend Silchester manor to anyone who asked."
Nick Hayman, Masie’s Dad
 
"We have always found the nursery to be exceptional in every way. Our child’s development has excelled, without a doubt. The environment is spacious, varied, well considered and safe. Furthermore, the staff are personable and caring – and their consistency is really beneficial for our child. The Silchester team have been extremely flexible in meeting our needs, and for this we value the nursery greatly."

"Our son loves Silchester – as his sister did before him. The grounds and facilities are great, and allow active children the space to run. Nicholas is always happy to go to nursery and adores his key carer – Becky. And he enjoys playing with all the other children."

"We know that Silchester Manor is a great nursery because our son cheers when we say “it’s nursery today”!
The staff’s care and attention to the children is always evident. Each room is stimulating and bright, and the variety of activities and play are exciting."
Heather Kearney
 
"My daughter was shy when she first started, but the staff supported and encouraged her. Now she is a confident little girl and that is helped by the secure and loving environment in the nursery.
Thanks to the staff in the ‘Gruffalo Room’, who are wonderful at their jobs!"
Claire Deegan
 
"Jess and Harriet really look forward to nursery days. They have so much fun that when they get home they are exhausted. They get to do more than we can at home. They love the carers and feel secure. I feel confident that they are being cared for, which takes the stress away of having to go to work. Thanks for making their early days so special and memorable."
Sophie Needs
 
"I have one child that has been through the full nursery, and a second child currently in the Gruffalo Room. I have been very happy with the staff caring for both of my children. They are friendly, helpful and attentive. I would recommend Silchester Manor as a great place to bring your children."

“Children are happy, settled and secure in a setting where the uniqueness of each child is valued. They participate in a broad range of activities and make good progress ...in an environment where a wide range of suitable resources are easily accessible to enrich their learning. Children are interested and involved as they actively make choices from a broad range of new and exciting toys and resources, and they make successful strides in their development in this strong setting. All parents spoken to praised the setting”
