We have been with two other nurseries in the past and the standard of care at Cherry Trees far exceeds the others. The routine and structure offered here is very much in line with what we practice at home, and there appear to be good learning and development opportunities through play. Staff are always professional and approachable, and managed the recent refurbishment in a very organised manner. Very impressive! They also take the time to build good rapport with the parents, making communication really easy.
The biggest satisfaction for me is the feedback my little one gives me! He is fond of the staff, the friendships he has formed and the activities he completes in the day - construction and art table being his favourite. He has only been attending Cherry Trees for about six-seven months but he settled in so well and so quickly. It’s nice to see him feel comfortable at nursery.
Cherry Trees was a recommendation from a friend, and I am so pleased we decided to go for it."

“Without your help and support we couldn’t have done it better! During her nursery days these months we have seen Nishi developing from a bud to a beautiful confident sprout… now with all her qualities developed from Cherry Trees she will shoot up and become a plant. ”

“The children are happy and form close bonds with kind, friendly and caring staff. A well-embedded key-person system ensures that children's care needs are successfully met. This promotes children's emotional well-being and good health.”
OFSTED Report August 2015
Each child's needs are monitored and planned for in exceptional detail. The safety and protection of children is given the highest priority. Detailed information is gathered from parents when children first start at the setting, and each time they change rooms. This ensures that staff have a fully rounded understanding of each child's needs. This information is used highly effectively; staff plan meticulously to ensure all children make rapid progress from their starting points ……. children are happy, relaxed and fully absorbed in exciting activities. Key staff, that the children know well, move with the children to help them settle in. This high level of concern for the children's well-being underpins all of the nursery's teaching. This ensures that children have secure foundations for future learning.
Staff are excellent role models. Their polite and respectful relationships, both with each other and the children, ensure children know how to behave well. Staff use puppets and masks depicting emotions to help children understand and manage their feelings. The baby room has a calm and soothing atmosphere. Staff speak gently to babies, providing reassurance and highly sensitive support. The well-planned rooms and the outside area are very well resourced, creating an inspiring environment for children. Children are highly motivated and keen to investigate all that is on offer. As one child said, ‘it’s good to get messy!’
There are many exciting opportunities for children of all ages."
