Comments from Parents and Carers:

We highly value feedback from families on how their children’s time is/was with us, and what they enjoy and/or appreciate about the Gooseberry Bush Day Nursery. The quotes below are from parents and carers of children that have attended the nursery in the past.

“I just wanted to say ‘Thank you!’ for running such a lovely nursery and for looking after my boys over the past 4 years. They have always had a good time and have learnt a lot! Keep doing what you’re doing!”

“Thanks so much for everything you have done for us. My child is now so much further forward”

“Thank you for all the help and support, he has come such a long way and wouldn’t be where he is now without all your help”

“Thank you for creating a safe, loving environment for my daughter”

“A big ‘thank you’ for all the love and support you have given our family”

Staff Appreciation Days

With the coronavirus pandemic putting more pressure on staff than before, we have now decided to host a Staff Appreciation Day each year (usually in Spring Term).

During Staff Appreciation Day we ask families to show their appreciation for our lovely team by adding their comments to our event post on ClassDojo. We keep all those lovely comments on a board located outside of the Main Office for our staff team to view all throughout the year!

Below are some of the comments from various families on Staff Appreciation Day 2022:

“Thank you to everyone in the Pooh Bears class. Harry has come on so well the past 6 months and that is due to the wonderful staff. It’s reassuring that when I drop him off I know he is well looked after and he is developing his skills and knowledge whilst he’s with you. Thank you x”

“Draco loves coming to nursery and misses it when he is not there, which I think says a lot about the job you’re all doing. I know some nurseries are still closed, and we really appreciate the work you’re doing despite the unusual and difficult circumstances putting extra stress on you this year. Thank you!”

“Thank you so much to all the staff that look after our Hermione they love spending time at nursery and looks forward to telling us all they’ve done – always at home ‘making pretend cakes’ for Pomona 🙂 truly are so thankful much love Hermione’s mummy and mumma xx”

“Minerva from Little Tiggers has been absolutely incredible with my Ron and is such a kind, gentle lady. Minerva has really helped improve on Ron’s learning and understanding and I feel she always goes into so much detail about his day for me. he makes me feel very much involved. All the Little Tiggers staff are wonderful and very friendly. Thank you to everyone of you x
