The Nest is what anyone who wants their child to be nurtured in a warm and caring environment could ever wish for. The staff are warm, involved and caring with both parents and children alike. The management is clear and cohesive and inclusive of parents. The schedule for the children is amazing they have pottery, computer learning, forest school and drama on a different day each week the likes of which I've never seen at any other nursery. Juliet, who set up The Nest has an ethos firmly placed in the arts and takes the children to see music and plays. The location means they're able to see play rehearsals for wonderful children's shows upstairs. It is ramshackle but colourful and charming and I am so glad we sent two kids there and will send our third. We love it and the friends we've made there. Couldn't recommend it highly enough. We love The Nest!
