The only way we can continue to do this is through the developing our own team and also attracting the very best childcare professionals to come and join us.

I love childcare as no two days are the same and I enjoy seeing and helping children to grow and develop life skills, as well as watching their characteristics and personalities develop and evolve. I’m loud and bubbly, always up for trying new things and like to get stuck into whatever is going on.

I need to let you know that I think you are a truly amazing nursery. Words can’t express how happy the girls have been in your care and how happy I have been with absolutely everything you do!

Ambourne House is such a lovely place. I feel so happy sending my children there. Every single member of staff seems genuinely passionate about the care they provide and our daughters, particularly our eldest, have flourished there. Everything they do from settling in, to the way they speak to children, to the activities they organise is excellently thought out. If I had to write down the perfect childcare environment for my children, this would be it. We are really appreciative of how the team have kept a real sense of normality at Ambourne House after lockdown.

My son absolutely adores his days here! He comes home singing songs he's learnt, showing me the actions and always comes out the door with a beaming smile! I love how much he loves preschool. Although it was initially difficult dropping off after the first lockdown, he loves going now and the updates at the door and regular tapestry updates really put me at ease as a parent to see what activities him and the other children are doing, especially as we can't see the full setting at present. Thank you to all at ambourne for creating such a fun environment during these difficult times.
