“Our child has been attending CK Duston for almost three years. The bright and welcoming facilities are a real asset, but what really sets this nursery apart is the fantastic and dedicated people who run the nursery and look after the children. Our little boy literally runs into nursery each day to do interesting and stimulating activities. Where additional support has been required, the nursery staff have worked closely with us to ensure our son gets that love, understanding and support. Overall, a fantastic place for little ones to develop and grow before they go to “big school”. I would wholeheartedly recommend Caring Kindergartens Duston to any parent looking for a safe, gentle and supportive environment for their little one.”
“Our 3.5 year old has been attending CK Duston since he was 9 months old and he has thrived there since day one. The nursery setting and staff are a cut above the rest and really take the time to invest in the children and constantly keep their enquiring minds active and challenged. Alfie frequently comes home with a different painting or biscuit that he’s made. Alfie suffers with a dairy allergy but we have never once had any cause for concern with how they manage his allergy and I have complete confidence in their ability to cater for his needs and ensure that he is never excluded from activities because of his allergy. The environment at Duston is not only nurturing and supportive for the children but professional and friendly for us parents – a real credit to the Caring Kindergartens name.”
“I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you to the nursery manager Kim and her team for looking after my son so well. I have felt that the process of Reece joining CK nursery has been pleasant and the transition from first look around to taster sessions and then completing relevant paperwork has gone really smoothly and so far I am really impressed with the service you are providing for my son. The support I have received has been fantastic and very reassuring when I have spoken to staff over the telephone when I have called to ask how he has been and its helped my decision to remain at work and for the nursery to continue to look after my son. He has achieved so much already in his first weeks, his confidence has doubled and mixing with others, also I was overjoyed to see a picture of Reece and his ‘first week at nursery’ – he looks so comfortable in his surroundings.”
“The nursery is lovely, especially the garden. Staff are extremely friendly and welcoming. My daughter has seemed to settle very quickly and we are looking forward to seeing her progress at the nursery.”
“We are really pleased with how our daughter has settled into nursery; she is always excited to go and usually doesn’t want to come home. Thank you all so much for helping her to settle so quickly and all the excellent care your provide.”
