  •   Thank you for looking after me this past year, you have helped me grow and develop to help me in my next challenge. I will miss playing in the garden! Thank you very much R x 

  •  Well end of an era! Not just for our daughter but for us as well as she is the last to leave you. Nearly 7 years of coming to you at least twice a week, first our son and then our daughter. All we can say is thank you so much for your hard work and caring, loving and thoughtful ways you have looked after both of our babies. They both enjoyed their time with you and have grown in so many positive ways from all your influences. Now our daughter is off to school and she is ready to take on the world like a little Moana princess. You’ve all been amazing thank you. We will let you know how she gets on at school.  

  • To all the staff at Redhill day nursery thank you also much for looking after my daughter for two years she’s going to miss you all. M x 
  •  Thank you all for helping us prepare our daughter for her next adventure at school. She will miss Redhill and all of you so much. See you next month when the next one starts. H x 
  • We just wanted to say thank you so much for all you have done for the twins whilst they have been at Redhill. They have made so many memories and been so happy. Thank you so much.  
  • To everyone in Preschool, toddlers and baby room. Thank you so much for making my whole time at Redhill so lovely. I have made lots and lots of friends and had lots of fun. I will really miss everybody! I can’t wait to start my new adventure at Big school, but I will never forget you! Lots of Love B

  • Words cannot say how thankful I am to you all for the last 7 years, you have supported, loved and nurtured my children in a way that I would want them to be cared for. The children love you as do I. X
  • Thank you for all your effort, time and patience with our daughter over the last couple of years. We are so proud of how well she has developed in education and personality during her time with you. We are very sad to say ‘good bye’ and will miss you all
  • From the moment I walked through the doors 3.5 years ago I knew I picked the right place and people to look after our daughter while we worked. She has loved every minute at Redhill and you have all helped her become the thoughtful girl she is today. Not only will she be sad to leave but so will I to say good bye. I have enjoyed the chats and never felt like ‘just a parent’. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. X
  • Thank you for all that you have done over the past 5 years! I remember trying to find somewhere for my child and being utterly traumatised at the thought of leaving her. I know some parents feel secretly upset when their child forms a strong bond with their carers but for me it was such a relief. It made going to work a lot easier so thank you for looking after my babies so well, we really appreciate it. X
  • You are all doing such a brilliant job and I would highly recommend you. Thank you for all the help, advice and support over the past year and guiding my daughter to be ready for school. She has loved every day and I could not have asked for a better place to leave her. We will miss you all so much. X

  • Thank you for always taking such good care of Evan for us. We always felt like you genuinely cared for him and that made such a difference. X
  • Thank you so much for giving Ryan the best start in life. He has loved every minute at nursery and the preschool. I can’t believe he’s off to school! Seems only five minutes ago I was dropping off to you when he was 9 months old! Thank you again. X
  • Thank you for all of the amazing memories, and for the amazing friends that I have made. X
  • I would like to thank everyone at the nursery. Especially those who have worked with Jayden and got him to where he is today. I’m really proud and so thankful for everything you have done. You are all so loving, friendly, caring, kind and amazing people.

Keep up the brilliant work, you all deserve a medal. X

Card from child who left nursery in 2012 –

“Just a quick note to say thank you all for the last 18 months H has spent with you. If I think back to the first day he joined you I realise how much he has grown and what a confident young man he is becoming. This is down partly to the support, fun and encouragement you have offered him. He has always come home speaking very positively about his time with you and I am sure he will miss you all dearly. Thank you also for the confidence you have given me to leave H with you. Not any easy task for any mum. And thank you finally for making his time with you one I am sure he will remember (if only little bits).” HR and Family

Comments from a recent parent questionnaire

The staff are approachable and friendly, very sensible and have a clear ethos of what the nursery is trying to achieve.

A great team atmosphere with everyone singing from the same song sheet.

Staff are very approachable and ultimately have the childrens best interests at heart.

All information on the setting is well presented and easy to access. The best information is feedback received from staff on a daily basis as it is immediate.

The website provides excellent information especially while living outside of the area. There is also menu information and allows parents to see photos of what all the children have been up to.

I feel this is the best nursery I have used. I am very happy.
