‘Thank you for all your hard work, making Windmill such a lovely nursery that my son really enjoys.’

Thank you so much for welcoming my daughter into your lovely ‘home from home’. She had an amazing time and has learnt a lot in such a short period she was with you. Thank you for your amazing work, you are the best!’

‘Your nursery and staff are amazing! I can’t thank you enough for taking such good care of my little girl and having such a huge influence on making her such a nice little person!’

‘Just wanted to say, I was really impressed with a member of staff when I picked up yesterday – what a lovely girl. Thumbs up to her!’

‘Thank you for all you do for my son. You are all amazing!’

‘Thank you so, so much for taking care of our boys for the last 6 years! You have played an important part in both their lives. They have learnt to share, be polite, join in, to be independent, how to behave, how to be happy…all of this is down to your hard work, care and love. Windmill and its brilliant staff have been part of the boys and our lives since they were both 11 months old – we are so sad to say goodbye.’

‘Thank you so much for the wonderful work you do. Both our children are so happy to spend time with you.’

‘I am so happy with Windmill. I am so, so glad that we decided to choose you chaps. It is so hard for us as we are so far away from him. If I think about the distance for too long it actually makes me feel sick. I could not do it if I did not have absolute faith that my son was safe but above all happy in his environment. A huge thank you to you and all of the staff.’

‘Thank you to you all for being so clear about my son’s additional needs – the information given by you and his key person was spot on – thank you so much for your support.’

“Jack settled into Windmill very well and all the staff welcomed him and took the time to ensure he was happy and content.  It is a very personal approach here so each child is given the support and attention they require.  Now Jack loves going and it is sometimes hard to get him home as he won’t leave the toys!” (March 2012)
