We are delighted with my Eve's development in all areas at Mrs Roberts class, the setting, staff and teaching are first rate and we love the 'homely' feel of the nursery. The children love the garden and escaping outdoors whenever they can, we can't wait for our youngest daughter to start when she is two.
I looked at many nurseries in the local area, but Mrs Roberts class was the one that gives the nurture I believe young children need. The small number of children allows them to have the attention to increase in confidence and let them be individuals. We always have a warm welcome and my child's personality is appreciated and celebrated.
I have been very happy with Mrs Roberts class - A home away from home setting where my son has developed & grown through nurturing in a gentle and unpressurised environment. All the staff are empathetic, caring & enthusiastic, meeting individual children's needs & interest. A well structured routine of play and learning activities adds to my child feeling safe, secure and very happy to attend. I have every confidence that my second child will also flourish with Mrs Roberts and would not hesitate to recommend this setting to any parent.

Mrs Robert's class is a rare find, an early years setting which is truly holistic, nurturing, stimulating and enriching. This is evident in the children who are happy, fulfilled, respected and love to be there. They are ready to absorb the environment and activities which are varied, exciting and give a fantastic foundation for each child's social, emotional and educational development. The team are caring, informed and child centred. I cannot rate Mrs Robert's class highly enough and feel lucky to have found it. This is the gold standard in provision for pre schoolers, I only wish it could continue into school-age. My daughter would happily stay there forever!

I have been absolutely delighted with Mrs Robert's Class. My daughter Isabel has been attending for the last 2 years and I feel that this has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. Somehow, Anne creates a wonderful warm, homelike environment which allows children to be relaxed and have fun whilst learning. All the staff are clearly devoted to the children, their happiness and well being and their development. Each child is able to learn in a way that suits them, whether that is scooting around the garden, playing in the Wendy house or the sand, helping Peter to grow and harvest vegetables and fruit, cooking, dressing up, doing jigsaws, singing and making music. The list is endless. This is all in addition to Anne's Montessori teaching, which is exemplary. The staff enjoy nurturing the children whilst helping them develop their social and independence skills. Isabel has just started school and I am so grateful to Mrs Robert's class for preparing her as she has so much confidence and is able to cope in a bigger class environment, in the playground and at lunchtime. Peter also takes a real pride in preparing delicious quality healthy food for the children.
As a working parent, I also felt very supported by Anne and Peter. I very much appreciated their flexibility when I needed to drop Isabel off early or had to collect her late and Peter was happy to bring Isabel home for me when needed. Anne and Peter took great care in letting me know how Isabel was getting on, including photos and detailed reports and Isabel loved telling me about her day. I will miss Mrs Robert's class very much and have recommended the nursery to everyone I know who is looking for the perfect place for their child to be safe, happy and learn.

I am so pleased I have found out about Mrs Roberts Class. My child has grown in confidence and is excited to attend every day.
My child feels safe and secure and is listened to; her needs are met on an individual basis – fantastic!
I think the facilities are fantastic inside and outside. The garden is great, especially the sand house and planting beds.’
I am happy with the routine and activities; they are varied and fun with a great balance of indoor and outdoor options.
I just wanted to add a big thank you to all the staff. I feel confident and comfortable with my child coming to spend time with you all. Without the responsiveness, support and kindness (of the staff) she wouldn’t be as fulfilled and happy to be there.
