This has been the best nursery by miles! On my son's last day today I genuinely do not want him to leave, not because he isn't ready, because he is thanks to these guys, but the kids and staff have kind of become a little family and he will truly miss every single person, staff and friends! Thank you so much for helping bring up our child into the perfect happy boy he is today! Toby loves you all! Thank you!

Both my son and daughter enjoyed their baby, toddler and pre-school days at this nursery. My husband and I feel immensely lucky that our children had a place here and the children were never anything other than happy and content. The staff are just amazing. I don't have anything else to say other than thank you Rocking Horse Nursery for making our childrens' nursery experience so wonderful x

What an amazing nursery both my girls were extremely happy there and have blossomed under the care of all the staff there, my youngest is now ready for school thanks to all the fantastic people who have cared for her for the last 3 years!

I had visited a couple of nurseries before to see what was around and where would be best for my little boy and nowhere felt better than The Rocking Horse. It is a proper home environment with the loveliest ladies who all love and care for the children like their own. My little boy has been going for just over a year and I wouldn't have him anywhere else.

Although I work at the nursery I wouldn't trust any other team of girls to look after my daughter more than I do The Rocking Horse Nursery team. If I ever went to another job I would still have her here, I know the nursery inside out and always know she is well looked after and safe in their care. I know I never have to worry about a thing, which is very reassuring especially as I'll be leaving to have another baby soon who will also attend and I won't be at nursery while she's there. They are all fantastic and lilly-Ella loves every minute there. She's always full of telling us what she's been doing when she gets home and excited to go. Couldn't recommend the nursery enough. Xx

My little boy has been at The Rocking Horse since he was a baby, and he is now in the pre school room..... and my daughter is just ending her journey in the baby room ready to go into the toddler room. All the staff are amazing, very caring, fun, and pay attention to children's individual needs and interests. The nursery itself has such a friendly, homely atmosphere. My son asks me everyday if he is going to nursery and if I say no he is always so disappointed. I always wished that my children wouldn't be held back like I was due to shyness and lack of confidence. They have already taken part in more activities than I ever did and I see their confidence grow week by week to which is down to The Rocking Horse Nursery. I cannot thank them enough for giving my children the best possible start.

My son started at the nursery 10 years ago and loved every second. He's now thriving in secondary school. When I had my daughter there was no question as to where I would send her. She has a lovely bond with all the staff, loves going to nursery, I have a job dragging her out at the end of the day and it's a real home from home atmosphere. Many of the staff are still there from when my son was there and I think staff retention says a lot about a nursery. Brilliant, friendly and approachable staff. Would recommend to anyone.

FABULOUS, FABULOUS, FABULOUS nursery! The staff are absolutely amazing and are like a second family to us. The boys settled in so well and always look forward to going to nursery. I recommend The Rocking Horse to all who ask and can't speak highly enough of them. If you want the best start for your little ones look no further.

I actually don't know where to start when rating Rocking Horse. Both my sons have been or still are at the nursery and I can't praise them enough. The team are dedicated, trustworthy, fun, enthusiastic and very genuinely care about each and every child. They go the extra mile and always ensure the children are happy, well looked after, are learning fabulous life skills and most of all are having fun.

Both my girls love The Rocking Horse (or Tina's as it is known at our house!!). My eldest left a year and a half ago and was so upset. The bonus to being a big sister is she gets to go back twice a week and see everyone who works there still. It's like a home from home and all the staff are brilliant with the children.
