What parents say

The nursery has always provided a standard of care for my daughter which has been excellent. She has thrived on her time at nursery, mainly as a result of the commitment of the staff which is second to none

We had so many laughs and joyful moments over the last couple of years and the support of management and staff is amazing

It is clear to us how fondly our children are thought of by key staff involved in their care and this has always reassured us that we are leaving them in safe, trustworthy hands

Continuity of care has been a major factor in the positive relationships that we as a family have been able to foster with the nursery

It is imperative that a parent is reassured their child is being well educated, fed, loved and most of all safe. I can honestly say there is no doubt in my mind, when I leave my child at Granby House that my child is getting all of this from the staff

Your professionalism is second to none and I would have no hesitation recommending you to anyone

We know that our child’s excitement and happiness about coming to Granby is because everyone works very hard to make it the wonderful, caring, quality environment it is

The love and attention you have given them has helped them both grow into happy and confident children

You have surpassed all the qualities that I value within an early years setting, providing an excellent and appropriate learning environment alongside dedicated and loving staff

I cannot begin to thank you enough for the love, care and attention you have shown both my children during their time with you
