Parents’ Comments Page

A selection of compliments and comments we have received from parents about our nursery in Castleford:-

  • "It has been great to see our son grow in confidence and much of his ability to integrate with other children is a result of his interactions at nursery. Yes we are thrilled at his recent progression in reading and general literacy but what has really stood out for us is the continuity of care he has received. All the staff have been utterly fantastic, whether greeting him by name, reinforcing good positive behaviour, going the extra mile and ensuring that we, as parents, are always kept informed and involved. It really is the people that make the place,,,, the staff have been brilliant. But you don’t get off that lightly – my son’s sibling is due in November – so it’s not goodbye just a temporary reprieve.” (Helen)
  • “We would like to say a huge thank you to you and your staff for all the love and care they have given our son. Whilst he has been at nursery he has thoroughly enjoyed his time and has loved playing in each of the rooms. He will begin school full of confidence and eager to start the next stage of his education and this is with thanks to the effort that has been made to allow him to be ready for school. The early years in a child’s life are so precious and ones you can never be given back so we just wanted to pass on our appreciation for giving such valuable experiences and enjoyment. Your staff are a credit to you and the nursery and we wish you all many more successful and happy years at Brambly Hedge." (S & J H)
  • "We would like to thank you for the excellent start in education and all the happy memories your nursery and staff have given our children." (Mr & Mrs J & J L)
  • “Thank you so much for looking after our son for the past 3 years. He has had so much fun & learnt so much. We have made some fantastic friends through the nursery and have felt supported in his development at every step." (A & G M)
  • “Thank you for looking after our son for the past 3 years. You have all done a fantastic job of teaching him and giving him a great start in life." (L M).
  • “Thank you so much for looking after and helping with the development of our children. It’s so sad that they are now leaving you but I know they’ve had lots of fun & learnt so much whilst they’ve been with you.” (N & H and the boys)
  • “We want to say a huge thank you for all the help and support you have given our son over the last 4 years. We have seen his confidence and skills develop especially in the Pre-School Room. Everyone is really friendly & show a genuine interest in his development. I feel he is now at an advantage going into his 1st year at full time school. All the staff are a credit to the nursery and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to family and friends in the future.” (M & M B)
  • “I feel my child coming to Brambly Hedge has helped him grow in confidence. With him being born premature I thought his learning would be affected, but the staff at Brambly Hedge have worked wonders on him and I feel he is now ready for school.”
  • “I have been very happy with Brambly Hedge Day Nursery. The staff to children ratio is very good. My child, who speaks little English, has been very happy which is very important to me.” (N H).
