"Now that our daughter is nearly at the end of her time at the Lyme Nursery, we feel happy that she is moving on to school and we are looking forward to the new, exciting challenges she will face. We are, however, so sad to say goodbye to the fantastic staff who have looked after her for the past 2 years. We will really miss dropping her off at nursery each morning! When our daughter started attending the nursery she was a very shy child who got very upset in new situations. This was mainly due to a medical condition she had suffered since birth and subsequent hospital treatment which had made her nervous around adults she did not know. All the staff were so understanding of her needs and worked hard as a team to help our daughter to settle in to the nursery as quickly as possible. As time has passed, she has become a very confident little girl with lots of new friends and a genuine bond with the staff who look after her in the Preschool room. She enjoys playing with her friends and taking part in daily activities such as outdoor play, phonics sessions, story time, singing and dance classes. She really looks forward to her days at nursery and can't wait to tell us all about what she has been up to, who she has played with and what she has eaten for her lunch! She also really enjoys completing her homework tasks and showing off a word she can read or a picture she has painted. A huge "thank you" to all of the staff at the Lyme Nursery, we will never forget her time spent with you all! We do not hesitate to recommend you to our friends and family.Thank you once again, Katie and Neil Tillett March 2014."
"My twin daughters have gone to the Lyme Nursery since they were 9 months old. They love going! The staff are fantastic and so helpful, the range of learning activities they use is fab. My daughters have come on leaps and bounds, but most of all they go in smiling and come out smiling, that says it all! Helen Bagguley October 2013."
"The Lyme Nursery have cared for my son for the last 15 months and the praise I give them is unconditional. The staff are superb - kind, caring, helpful, fun, enthusiastic, knowledgeable - I cannot fault them. They always provide me with information about my son's day, and other general information, and will always answer any of my questions. The nursery itself is a lovely place to be. All the rooms are bright and colourful with many pictures and drawings the children have done on the walls, and toys everywhere! All the children have very fun-filled, and educational, days with much drawing, painting, sticking, gluing, singing, and much much more. There is a large garden area at the nursery providing all the children with a very secure outdoor environment to play and learn in. There are plenty of outdoor toys for the children to play on, and even a little maze. In the summer I vividly remember seeing my son and the rest of the group sitting under a tree in the garden having a story read to them - it was a beautiful sight! The food is always home cooked and there is an ever changing menu which is wonderful. I would always highly recommend the Lyme Nursery to anyone. Sarah Deane October 2013."
"We are very happy with the care and attention both our children get at the Nursery. It provides a safe, friendly, playful environment for our children to spend the days that we are at work! The garden area was a particular selling point and it's great that it's been able to be used so much this summer! Debby Taylor-Woods August 2013."
“Both of our children have been coming to The Lyme Nursery over the last 5 years. As parents it's one of the most difficult things you will do to entrust others with your precious little ones. The Lyme Nursery has made this a very positive experience for us through friendly and professional staff that above all else take care of our children extremely well. Without doubt I would recommend The Lyme Nursery to any parents taking, what was for us, a big step in sending their children to Nursery. Jon Downing June 2013."
“I'm over the moon with how my 18 month old son is getting on at The Lyme Nursery. I was initially worried about how he would settle in because he had only been used to spending his days with me, and as an only child he wasn't used to being around other babies. But, I have to say, the support, understanding, and flexibility of the Lyme Nursery School was absolutely terrific during the settling in phase, and we didn't feel rushed into moving from the taster sessions to full days. The staff are all so friendly and do a fantastic job. After considering several nurseries before placing Zach, I have no doubt that I chose the right one. Thank you! Sam Hopwood May 2013."
