A Parents View

"I would describe the nursery as one that goes far above and beyond for the children and families. Iwould describe myself as one of those more needy parents and this is completely accepted and as a parent my needs are met too."

"Felicity and her senior team seem highly competent and committed. It’s an amazing setting that deserves full recognition for all that they do, that in my opinion not all settings achieve this. I couldn’t fully put into words what a wonderful place Felicity’s Fledglings Nursery is. I would highly recomending to others."

"Very happy parents that our child is in the best possible place!"
