Reviews taken from our previous website:

NAME: Lynne

COMMENT: Our eldest attended Harwood Day Nursery from 6 months old to school age and our youngest is still there. The nursery experience they have each received has been totally different because the staff tailor their care according to the individual child (and my two are very different!!) but we have been consistently delighted with the standard of development and care provided. I would have no hesitation in recommending this nursery.

NAME: Katie Ferguson

COMMENT: My two children go to Harwood Day Nursery and have done full time for over two years. All the staff are fantastic, caring and extremely professional. I would have no hesitation in recommending this nursery to anyone. Thank you Harwood Day Nursery for taking care of my most prized possessions xxx

NAME: Catherine Hill

COMMENT: Lovely nursery, my little boy has come on so much since starting at this nursery. The girls in the Baby Room are so lovely, I can talk to them with ease. My 2 year old is moving rooms in September, I will miss the baby room but looking forward to his new chapter in his little life. All the staff are lovely, a very homely nursery.

NAME: Kate Settle

COMMENT: When I have heard the word "nursery" a hundred times in the morning, I eventually get there to be greeted by smiley faces, wonderful smells from the kitchen and lots of happy children already up to their knees in sand, having fun. I am happy to leave Ava-Maria with her new friends there and her confidence has grown even in the few weeks she has been there. I knew it would as my 11 year old went there too :) keep up the excellent work ladies and thank you xxx

NAME: Emma

COMMENT: My daughter absolutely loves going to nursery - she cheers when we arrive in the morning. I know she is well looked after and I fully trust the staff with Alyssa. The staff are very professional and the nursery overall is of a very high standard. I receive regular pictures of my daughter's progress, which I love to look at. The meals are freshly made and they provide a great variety. I would highly recommend anyone to come to this nursery.

NAME: Leanne

COMMENT: My son has been going to Harwood Nursery for 6 months and he loves it and the staff there. He always has a fun packed day, like playing in the sandpit, the activity cube outdoors or baking cakes and painting. He also has freshly made meals there, that are prepared by the cook. The staff are lovely and friendly and at the end of each day they go through everything that Charlie has been doing. His speech and learning ability has come on brilliantly since he has been here too. Absolutely fantastic nursery, I would recommend it to any parent.

My eldest has now been at the nursery for 2 years and during this time I have developed good relationships with all the members of staff. Both boys look forward to their days at nursery. The staff are great and I leave my children fully confident that they are cared for and well looked after. I would recommend this nursery to anyone.


COMMENT: My daughter currently attends nursery 1 day a week, soon to be 2 days, and I am so happy I picked Harwood Day Nursery. I was worried about leaving her so young (she was only 6 months) but the staff were brilliant and put me at ease straight away. I now have no worries dropping her off and would highly recommend the nursery to any parent, especially those that are worried about having to leave a young baby when they go back to work.
