Parent Reviews

Here are some testimonials and reviews we’ve received from parents of children and babies who attend our nursery.

“As first time parents choosing a nursery felt like a difficult task, how would we know which was best for our child, we visited a number of nurseries in the local area and when we went to KLT’s early on in our search we knew we had found the perfect place.

We called and booked an appointment and Kirsty (Managing Director) showed us round the whole nursery, explaining the different rooms for the children as they progress through the nursery and at the end of the tour explained how everything would work, from payment to what the nursery could supply and what we needed to provide.

On the tour we noticed how kind and caring the staff were with the children and how engaged they were with supporting their learning.

We received advice on settling in sessions which was invaluable and the staff’s knowledge on how to best settle children in was fantastic and reassuring, they would make contact regularly when our child was settling in to let us know he was ok or if needed collecting early.

Our child has been at KLT’s for 2 years now and we are very happy, knowing he is been well looked after and developing.

The management of the nursery are flexible, fair, have a passion for looking after and developing children and are always happy to help.

I would highly recommend KLT’s it’s an independent family run nursery with a lovely atmosphere.”

“KLT is just the most amazing nursery! The level of professionalism is outstanding as is the care, thought, and love shown to the children. My son has settled in so easily and the process was thorough, informative, and easy. My son loves his keyworkers and the activities he undertakes daily are challenging, fun, and engaging. Every day I know when I pick him up he has had a great day, staff meet you at the door with a smile, fill you in with what they have done, eaten, and everything else you need to know, they never rush the end of day handover. Staff go above and beyond to support the stages your child is going through and anything you ask they implement, for example, my husband mentioned my son not speaking much and the nursery happily worked on this area. When he crawled for the first time at nursery they took a video and showed me at the end of the day. They follow your routine from home for the babies so there is no confusion for your baby. I go to work not worrying at all.”

“Kirsty has looked after our daughter since she was 6 months old; the service Kirsty has offered has always been professional, friendly, flexible, and accommodating. During times of job and financial worries for my husband and me, Kirsty was flexible to our personal circumstances and ensured that our daughter Grace was able to continue her childcare at reduced hours with little notice of this change. This was only required for a short amount of time but it was a very worrying time for us made easier by Kirsty’s understanding of our situation.
Kirsty has always been friendly and courteous in whatever the situation and I would recommend her to any parents looking for a nice setting for their child, where they will feel happy, learning new things every day.
Not only will your child be happy, you will also be able to build a good relationship with Kirsty and her staff that will enable you to feel content that your child is being looked after in a friendly, safe and professional environment.”

“Over the last 8 years Kirsty has played a key role in caring for our three children at various stages of their pre-school life.
Kirsty has the great ability to provide a warm, caring, and loving environment, whilst at the same time maintaining structure and routine.
Our children have thrived on this and they have all loved being in Kirsty’s care. We have always found Kirsty to be very professional and approachable regardless of circumstance, she tackled all situations with a calm, ‘can do’ attitude.
We have no hesitation in recommending ‘KLTs’ whatever your child’s age or childcare needs.”

“Just wanted to say how impressed I was with the nursery and your staff. Craig and all the staff were so lovely with the children and my little boy seemed very settled. I’ll be dropping his registration form off this week with the registration fee. It makes it seem a lot less scary knowing he’ll be going to somewhere so passionate about the safety, development and care of the children. Thanks so much”

“Our daughter has been attending KLTs since she was 15 months old. Initially this was just one day a week but when we realised how great it was and how much she enjoyed going we very quickly increased to two days a week. Our daughter loves her time at nursery and now as a chatty 3 year old she enthuses about the staff, her friends, and the fabulous activities she is involved in. Attending nursery has played a key role in her development and we feel it’s excellent preparation for starting school next year. Kirsty and the team are amazing; friendly, approachable, flexible and most of all they really care, and this shows. I cannot recommend KLTs enough and I am so very grateful to them for the fantastic care they provide and the relationship we as a family have with them. If you are looking for childcare, KLTs should be your first call! An absolutely brilliant nursery!”

“It hardly seems five minutes since we first met Kirsty for our twin daughters’ settling in session when they were six months old. Kirsty soon put our anxieties about childcare to rest. Kirsty has always been genuine in her care and commitment to our children and in dealing with us. She is always upbeat and full of fun but is firm when needed. Over the last six years we have seen our three children thrive under Kirsty’s supervision. She has a natural way of engaging with the children and we are delighted to recommend Kirsty.”
The Blundell family
“My son James went into Kirsty’s care when he was just a baby, he is now preparing for his first year at school. Its one of the most anxious times for parents as you are trusting another person with the most precious thing in the world. Kirsty put my concerns to rest, and never once did I feel she didn’t fully understand. I was meeting with Kirsty on a regular basis and I can honestly say she has always been friendly, informative, and very caring. Kirsty always made time for me, regardless of how busy she was. I can highly recommend Kirsty, she has excellent communication skills, an in-depth understanding of what children and anxious parents need, and above all Kirsty really cares and it shows time and time again. When James achieved, Kirsty was as thrilled as I was, Kirsty has a truly remarkable bond with the children within her care.”

“Kirsty has looked after my children for the past 4 years and has always been friendly, welcoming and organised carer. She has always made my children feel very settled and welcome and they have enjoyed and thrived in Kirsty’s care. The activities she provides for the children are exciting, stimulating, and differentiated for the individual needs. More importantly, as a primary school teacher I understand the importance of learning the basics needed for a successful entrance to school and I feel that my daughter was very well prepared, as she had been taught letters and sounds, numbers, and many of the important social and educational skills needed to flourish at school and for that we are very grateful to Kirsty.”

“KLT’s have supported my daughter from 6 month’s onwards. She loves going and gets upset on the days that she doesn’t. They have advanced and enhanced her development into the toddler she is now”
