    Our child loves going to Freshfields! The outside space is the biggest and best in the area – so much space and it even has a small farm with pigs, rabbits, chickens, goats and lambs.
    When the children are inside, they do so many activities throughout the day of which we enjoy getting the updates/photos via the app.
    The staff are all friendly, caring and they have gone above and beyond to help our child settle into nursery – of which she clearly loves and happily goes inside and doesn’t look back anymore!

    I have had children at Freshfields since 2018 and I cannot recommend enough. Amazing staff who treat my children as their own. The best outdoor facilities possible with animals, mud kitchen and playhouse. My children have always been happy going in every morning.

    My child is almost 3 and has attended Freshfields Nursery School since the age of 14 months. He has been in two different rooms and has flourished massively. The staff in each room have helped him to develop and experience a whole host of new experiences. He has always loved animals and being outdoors so this nursery has been perfect for him. He has made strong relationships to the staff he sees, and still asks for his old Key Worker! They have also been really accommodating towards his various medical needs. 10/10 would recommend!

    The staff at Freshfields are very caring, constantly keeping us up to date either in person or via the app while our child was settling in and now full-time. We also love that there is a mini farm on site and they visit the animals regularly! We picked this nursery because it focuses on outside playing/learning as much as inside and we’re happy we did as our child loves it there!

    We are delighted that we chose to send our daughter to Freshfields Nursery back in 2022. She has thrived since joining at 10 months old which is down to the hard work and dedication of the manager and her team. Our daughter gets excited at drop off, running in without so much as a wave goodbye to play with her friends and greet her key workers. Thank you for all of your hard work each day to keep our children safe and happy!

    Our little boy has been at Freshfields Nursery School since the nurseries opened during lockdown. He is now three and enjoys attending Freshfields every day.
    We consistently felt that the staff in the rooms were excellent throughout, however, the management of things was always a little lacking. Communications were lacking and information was difficult to find.
    Recently there have been a lot of changes, including the loss of a few fantastic staff members. However, since the most recent manager took over management we have seen improvements in communications and involvement.
    The children spend a lot of time outdoors and are very lucky to have access to animals on site including pigs, rabbits and some Spring Lambs at the time of writing. My son enjoys animals a great deal and we are glad that he is able to enjoy these extra benefits at Freshfields.
    His teacher has worked hard to ensure that the transitions have impacted him as little as possible and he talks very fondly of her.

    Our daughter loves going into Freshfields, she has super relationships with the staff in her room, Bluebells. The Freshfields staff care and look after her so well. She has always loved all of the outdoor space and the animals, she finds the goats hilarious and is delighted with the latest additions of pigs! Communication is great in terms of hand over at home-time with key information about the day and also via the app. The app is a lovely way for us to share our daughter’s learning journey and the photos are delightful. We have always found our daughter to be so happy when we pick her up; a testament to what a wonderful day the staff have provided for her.

    My children started at Freshfields Nursery School in February 2023, aged 9 months and 3.5 and I couldn’t be happier with it. I chose this nursery mainly because they have a farm on site and it strikes a lovely balance between indoor and outdoor activities. I was a little nervous at first with the recent takeover, but the new Manager is fantastic. Most importantly, the staff are amazing – both kids settled so quickly and clearly adore their carers. They both go in so happily and my 3 year old is always very disappointed on non-nursery days!

    It took my 12-month-old 2 weeks (she only goes to nursery twice a week) to settle into the nursery when she first started. She now loves going to nursery and I know she’s well looked after. Special thanks to the nursery staff.

    I love that the nursery has got its own little farm, which probably contributes to the fact that my toddler is not scared of any animal and will go up to pet any animal.. regardless of it being a chicken or rabbit, or a goat!
