Since then Kirsty has had experience with all age groups at the nursery and has been a very steady member of the team.
Kirsty has been team leading the Green Room since late 2017 and has completed an introductory course in Team Leading.
H has been able to play with new toys/activities and be surrounded by children and lovely staff members. We are moving away from the area, we are very sad that we have to move her nursery.
I love hearing about H's day when I pick her up, she looks so comfortable with all of the staff especially Kirsty. Kirsty has been fabulous, she has really taken her time with H and H adores her. Kirsty has gone above and beyond for H. We know that she gets very attached to people and we are lucky that we have had Kirsty and all of your lovely staff members to look after her.
The nursery is very reasonably priced and we have been really happy with her care and all communications. I have already recommended the nursery to other friends and colleagues.
Thank you so much for everything. Unfortunately we have unexpectedly had to move locations but if we hadn’t we would have been very happy for H to stay at the nursery.
