Downs Park is really lovely. My son is very clingy to me usually, and I sent him from the age of one, but he happily trots in because he knows all the staff and knows how caring they are. It is a lovely warm place, where little ones thrive and enjoy great adventures. They often take them onto the nearby Downs for little outings spontaneously if the weather is nice and its so sweet to see them all enjoying everything the days have to offer.
Downs Park has been a wonderful home from home environment for our daughter. Children are nurtured and supported to develop at their own pace and are offered a huge range of opportunities and experiences by knowledgeable and experienced staff. This has included Forest School, yoga and massage. Our daughter has been thriving and growing in confidence since she started attending.
The facilities at Downs Park are excellent with well-resources rooms, a lovely garden and delicious food cooked on site.
Everyone at Downs Park has been so friendly and welcoming not only to our daughter but to our whole family. Downs Park is a truly special place and we can’t recommend it highly enough.
We will miss you very much and we’d like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your commitment and your hard work…absolutely priceless.
My son started Downs Park Day Nursery as a very clingy 10 month old. I was quite anxious about how he would settle in to nursery life, but I needn’t have worried. He’s so happy and confident there! The nursery accommodated a slow settling in period and were very supportive during this initial transition. The staff are wonderful, and the baby room has a calm, warm and fun atmosphere. I feel confident that all my son’s needs are met with care and compassion. It has a home-from-home environment with home-cooked meals and lovely garden. All the children seem to be so content and happy. I would recommend Downs Park to anyone looking for a nursery for their child.
We have noticed an improvement in both children since they started with you. We feel that they enjoy your nursery. We are very impressed with the staff. They are much happier now than the previous nursery. It is a shame we did not change earlier.
We also wanted to thank you and the staff so much for providing such a lovely environment for Tom over the past two years — we are delighted to have found such a wonderful nursery. We’re going to miss you all!
Down’s Park Day Nursery is like a home from home. My daughter is 4 and has been going to nursery since she was 11 months old, and before her, my older daughter attended also. The staff are so welcoming and affectionate, and they have such a shared enthusiasm for all the children. They have offered nothing short of excellent care and attention for my daughters.
I have visited Downs park several times and have always been impressed by the professionalism and high standards of the staff. They show real commitment to the well being and education of the children. This is reflected in the happy atmosphere, where staff and children are engaged and welcoming.
Such an amazing nursery. I wouldn’t think twice about recommending it. My girls have been so happy and thrived there. The staff are friendly and honest and I trust my girls to them without having to doubt whether they are being looked after and cared for. The food (cooked on site) is varied and appropriate. The activities are fantastic with lots of opportunity to get outside. I go to work knowing my girls are safe and happy. Thank you to all the staff.
Thank you for everything you have done in helping to ensure Jack has loved every minute of nursery, I can’t believe he has been with you at Downs Park for 4 whole years! You and all the girls have been fantastic and made leaving Jack so much easier, knowing he is in such a safe, loving and nurturing environment.
