Loved seeing my little girl bloom at helmingham. She has been there from 18months and is now nearly 3. She is always excited to go and only aprehensive the 1st time. All the lovely ladies who run it are warm and friendly to us both and a source of knowledge and wisdom when dealing with potty training etc etc. we both love it!!
An outstanding nursery in every way
Our son has thrived at this nursery and absolutely loves going there! All the staff are extremely friendly, caring and knowledgeable and the children receive individual care and attention to bring out the best in them. The children are given lots of opportunities to grow, learn and have fun in a safe and stimulating environment, with a wide variety of activities on offer. Our son has become far more confident and his speech and vocabulary have developed enormously. We will be sad to leave when he goes to 'big school' later this year.
I can't praise this nursery highly enough. The setting is beautiful, lots of outdoor space for our son to explore. Many of the staff have had their own children which gives me the peace of mind that they understand and can empathise fully with all sorts of situations. Since starting at the oshn our son's speech has improved along with his confidence. He loves going to nursery and has made lovely bonds with members of staff. The effort that the ladies go to to put on extra events is remarkable; art exhibition, sports day etc. I will be truly sad the day my son moves on and we couldn't wish for a better setting for our child to start their educational journey.
