    We have been really impressed by the whole team at Orchard Day Nursery.  We looked at a range of nurseries, but decided to go to Orchard Day because of just how much care they take with their children – and we are so pleased we made that decision!  Our daughter was a little uncertain at first about spending her days with anyone other than her Mum or Dad, but the care taken by the Nursery team in getting her settled in was second-to-none.  They were really thoughtful about what would make her feel more at ease and went out of their way to help her adjust to her new surroundings.  Our daughter loves it at Orchard Day – she’s a happy bunny when we drop her off and still happy by the time we go to pick her up again!  The staff are fantastic, the rooms are well equipped and clean, and the garden areas are brilliant for the kids to let off a bit of steam.  We couldn’t have asked for anything more from them – they’re fabulous!

    Our daughter has been cared for by Orchard Day Nursery since she was 8 months old, she is now four. She is in the pre-school now and feels like a big girl in her uniform (which is optional) she has developed so much with her learning and play which we feel is preparing her for primary school. She has a good balanced nutritional meal breakfast, lunch and dinner. We as a family love Orchard Day and the lovely staff and would highly recommend it, as a parent it's hard to leave your children but we know she is in safe hands and enjoys her time there with her friends.
