'From the first time we visited we knew it was just the nursery for our daughter. The staff are friendly, warm and welcoming as well as caring and professional. We feel confident she will be well looked after everyday. We have already seen the results of her socialising and play in her development. She has bonded quickly and very well with her key worker'

Cheryl Pierce and Al Start, parents of Tyler-Mae, aged 1.

'In my eyes Acorn is not only a nursery that cares and helps teach your children it also nurtures them by offering cuddles whenever they are needed. A nursery that is very passionate about children. It will bring a tear to my eye when Reece leaves next year'

Joanne Loftus, parent of Reece, aged 3.

'My son has now been attending the Acorn nursery for over 12 months. He has special needs and I have found Acorn and it's staff have excelled my expectations in every aspect of his care. He requires unique equipment for his disabilities and the members of staff have had to become familiar with this and indeed could not become more accommodating. In my view and from experience I could not recommend highly enough the comprehensive service offered by this superb nursery.'

Debbie Boulton, parent of Oscar

'I chose Acorn as the feeling I had when visiting was like I would be leaving my children with my best friend, they would be safe, loved and have lots of fun. Acorn is great they really look after everyone, the outdoor space is lovely and the staff are all so friendly. It's great to know my children are being looked after so well. I can concentrate on being at work.'

Caroline Hayes, parent of Katie, aged 3.
