    I am very happy with my child’s progress. St Mary’s has a very “family” environment.
    My child settled into the nursery very well and has made some good friends.
    The nursery has improved and now looks much more like a nursery. I am very pleased with the new toys/educational games and equipment the nursery have to help the children learn.

    Very welcoming, real effort to get to know the children once the new staff were taking over. Thorough baseline assessment of the child, caring, supportive manner, open communication with parents. My child has really enjoyed spending time here and has been encouraged to join in socially and really feel a part of the setting.

    I would like to thank all the staff at Twickenham Bright Horizons for taking food care of my daughter. She felt home and comfortable at the nursery and she learned a lot of new things before going to reception. She learned empathy and friendship.

    Our daughter has been at St Mary’s Pre School for over a year now and has very much enjoyed her time there. The staff are all amazing and the level of care is excellent. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the nursery to anyone who asked.

    The staff are very caring and my 3 year old loves coming in. They are always welcoming and happy to chat about my child’s progress. My older child also comes for after-school care and loves it too. During half term, when she was coming full time, she told me as she went to bed that she couldn’t wait to wake up and go to nursery. Outstanding.

    My daughter was previously attending another Ofsted “outstanding” nursery, and after relocating to this area for work purposes, we came across St Mary’s Pre-school. We have been impressed with this nursery in every way. My daughter is a new girl after attending this nursery. At her previous nursery, which was a very good nursery, we still had tears when dropping her off, however at St Mary’s, thanks to the hard work from the staff, she settled so well and so quickly. She loves going to nursery and adores the staff.

    Staff always listen to all our concerns and any goals we have for my daughter’s learning and work with us to achieve them. We get very individualised care. Both myself and my daughter adore the staff. They work so hard and are so caring and so good at what they do, each and every single one of them. The nursery manager and deputy always have time for a chat and are highly professional.

    It is just an amazing nursery all round.

    My daughter started at St Mary’s just before her 4th birthday. I’m just so thrilled at the progress she’s making in just one term. The emphasis on math and English is amazing and really helps the little ones get ready for school. She’s writing her name, always asking me how to spell words, and adding and subtracting. It’s just amazing.
    The staff also do a great job with activities and play with the children. It is so lovely to pick her up, and for her to proudly show me what she made. The dedicated outside space is brilliant and ensures they get some fresh air and exercise regardless of the weather.
    They also do such a fab job with holistic learning – good manners, the difference between healthy and unhealthy food, hygiene, safety.

    The absolute credit to all of this is down to the staff. They are incredible and I feel like everyone in there is her key worker. Their effort is evident in my constant amazement of everything she is learning every day.
    Highly recommend. Outstanding!

    What a little gem this place is. It has a lovely, caring atmosphere that was head and shoulders above the others I considered. My son has settled quickly and looks forward to going every time. I cannot recommend it enough!

    We have been very pleased with the care our daughter has received. This is a well run and managed nursery and I’ve been impressed with how well they have prepared her for school (writing her name, phonics, counting, etc).

    This nursery is by far the best that is around. The ladies that work there put there all into the children and it shows in my son’s amazing progress since going there. My son is always very busy doing amazing, fun and educational things. They are very welcoming in every way possible. I’m so pleased and proud of them for getting outstanding from Ofsted, well done ladies!.

    We moved to the area in September and started our son at the nursery amidst a lot of change. The staff were brilliant. Very supportive and caring. They ensured he settled well into the nursery and its environment. He is very happy there. His recounts of his day are full of smiles and excitement. We couldn’t be happier with the nursery and its staff.

    Great experience. Friendly, caring staff. Love the enthusiasm and activities they do with the kids. Great to see them focus on what each child enjoys and how they try to grow each child’s strengths and abilities/interests.
    Only negative is food often looks unhealthy eg melted cheese on bread for tea. Not sure the kids are getting balanced meals, but I may be wrong. My child is always starving when we get home and seems to always just have sandwiches for tea.

    We are so happy with our son’s nursery. The settling in process was great and meant he has already had a taste of how his day would run. The staff are lovely and always have time to chat about what he has done and how he has been. The activities are purposeful and build on care skills. We couldn’t be happier with his first experience of the nursery.

    My daughter attends St Mary’s Twickenham Preschool two full days per week, and our son attends on the same 2 days for pre and post School care. Our experience is that the care both our children get is simply excellent. The activities, learning and general support for both is greatly helping their development. The Nursery facilities are excellent and the range of educational and play activities is fabulous. The staff are caring, attentive and very knowledgeable. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it.

    My daughter is attending Bright Horizons St Mary’s Twickenham Preschool for six months now and we are extremely happy and satisfied with the care, attention, development and overall experience she receives there. We tried multiple different nurseries in the area and there has always been something she didn’t like about these. Amazingly, she settled into St Mary’s straight away and looks forward to going there every morning (and sometimes on the weekends too). She has established a lovely relationship with the nursery manager and all her teachers. I have no hesitation in recommending St Mary’s to any parent looking for a safe, stimulating, caring environment for their child.

    My daughter loves the nursery. I have seen a massive improvement in her communication skills, she’s a lot more independent since starting at Twickenham Bright Horizons. The staff are extremely friendly and my daughter is so excited when I drop her at the nursery. I am so pleased that I chose Twickenham Bright Horizons. Thank you all the team.

    Excellent nursery. I’m so glad I joined my son at Bright Horizons St Mary’s Twickenham Preschool. All the teachers are so wonderful and helpful. My son has learnt so much and is more confident thanks to all the staff.
