Brilliant setting, both children have attended one still does currently as is very happy, always happy to attend and always has stories to tell and has built up good relationships with the kind and caring staff. Always happy to accommodate where possible at short notice. Would recommend without hesitation. I like that the staff are a little tactile with the kids and treat them as family is the best way to explain it. None of this we can't hold kids hands, can't put plasters on etc. Just basic common sense which is rare in today's day, but a welcome change and something that really sets the setting apart from others. Definatley does not feel like a clinical educational setting, feels more homely which definatley benefits the children. My eldest who is now nearly 7 is very confident and i credit kiddecats for this and she would also say 'It was amazing' and regularly asks if she can go back someday.

I have 2 older children that went to an outstanding nursery, but Kiddicats puts them to shame. Staff are friendly, warm and are always open to discuss any issues we have straight away. Most of all my child is extremely happy there and safe and as a parent that is the most important thing to me as a parent. Through this whole Covid 19 pandemic we were always kept in the loop about changes. My son has been going there for almost a year and i couldn't have been happier. I would definitely recommend this setting. Working in a school setting myself, i can see where Kiddicats go beyond their call of duty.

My daughter has attended KiddieCats for two years and is due to start school in September. The staff are warm, caring and approachable and go above and beyond to ensure the children‚Äôs happiness. My daughter is leaving Kiddie Cats confident, happy and ready to start school in September. Kiddie Cats have always been flexible and allowed me to make changes, even at short notice. They ensure the children have access to a wide variety of activities throughout the day and I love that they go outside as much as possible. They also take the children out for walks and do visits in the local community e.g. to the library or garden centre. The pandemic has made it even more apparent how dedicated, flexible and caring all of the staff members are as they have gone out of their way to ensure the children‚A safety and happiness. A wonderful setting which allows children to flourish and be school ready!

Lovely homely feel from the minute you walk in. Going out of their way to provide evening & weekend visits due to the pandemic. Highly recommend
Fab nursery, amazing staff! Lots of love and care. Nothing is ever too much trouble. Halle absolutely loves it and has made some amazing friends. Thank you for everything you do.

My Daughter has only been attending a few months but loves KiddieCats so much, she looks forward to going each session, has made lots of friends and takes part in some great activities, including lots of outdoor time and music/dancing lessons. The staff are lovely and very child centred, very helpful for anything out of the ordinary and very supportive for the parents as well as the children. They take part in activities with/for the local community and have a very varied and engaging programme. My daughter loves going there and I feel perfectly happy leaving her in their hands. -Mother of child

Both my children have attended over the years and the nursery has been outstanding for both children, it feels like the children are part of a family with the kind and caring staff. Staff always go above and beyond to provide a safe and cared for space for the children and both my children have loved their times at Kiddiecats and it’s just a shame we shall not be needing the nursery after this year but want to say a special thanks to all the staff current and past who have contributed to the education and growing of my children and I cannot express enough gratitude. Thanks for everything you have all done over the years, will miss the daily trips to bringing the kids to their favourite place. Take care and keep up the fantastic work.

My daughter joined this nursery in January this year. She as been there for 6 months and she loves it. The staff are extremely friendly and even with covid and the difficulties that brings my daughter as settled in well. Her communication skills, her little personality and her overall development as come along. Would highly recommend this pre-school.
A lovely little preschool, both my children have attended my eldest left a few years ago but my youngest leaves to go to infant school in September. Both loved attending and never had any problems with getting them to go to school. Whilst at Kiddiecats there social skills thrived and they learnt lots of new skills. Staff are friendly and approachable, I found that Kiddiecats are flexible. Communication between parents and Kiddiecats is excellent.
My daughter really enjoys going to Kiddie kats . She is very fond of all the staff members and the children as they are all so lovely and welcoming . She would go everyday if she could !
--Mother of child
My oldest daughter attended for 2 years and my youngest daughter is there now. The staff are caring and kind, the lunches are good, there’s fun sessions run by outside companies. There’s loads for the children to do, both inside and outside. Kiddiecats really helps get young ones ready for school - teaching phonics, letter writing, turn taking etc. staff communicate well with parents and they are really accommodating when it comes to swapping sessions. This is my last year with a child there - we’ll all feel sad when it’s over.
