What do parents say about us?

  • “Really lovely nursery and my daughter loved it. Unfortunately I had to move her due to a change in my job but if things would ever change I will definitely take her back to Cherubs Pleasley. Thank you for looking after her so well!”

    Emma T Wednesday 7th June 2017, Cherubs Pleasey
  • “A truly outstanding nursery with truly outstanding staff. My daughters both love coming to nursery and both have really genuine bonds with their brilliant key workers. The activities that the nursery staff create for all age groups are very imaginative and original and develop the children's skills and challenge their abilities. I love the opportunities that the girls have been given and I can see them flourish in such a caring environment. I honestly think Cherubs Pleasley has enriched their early year's experience. A fab manager and a fab team.”

    Clare G Wednesday 3rd May 2017, Cherubs Pleasey
  • “Excellent quality childcare provision. Professional and knowledgeable staff. My son enjoys going to nursery - this tells me he has a good relationship with the staff who care for him. I believe my child is well cared for and happy here.”

    Samantha H Wednesday 5th April 2017, Cherubs Pleasey
  • “Cherubs Pleasley is a great nursery. Staff turnover is low in comparison to other nursery providers we have used and the staff are hands-on. Our son enjoys coming to the nursery and our daughter looks forward to coming every half term.”

  • “My daughter has not been at nursery for long, she started in January 2017, she was very shy at the start but the staff were very, very friendly and she soon settled in and enjoys every minute of being there. She comes out of nursery singing all the songs that she has learnt and tells me all her friend's names and what she has been doing. She talks about the staff and she likes them all. I'm really happy with the nursery and would definitely recommend it to others.”

    Rachel G Tuesday 28th March 2017, Cherubs Ladybrook
  • “The nursery and staff are always welcoming and they have made mine and my daughter's experience of nursery a great one. My daughter initially suffered from separation anxiety, however, the staff worked well with her and would always make a fuss when we arrived and would tell my daughter who was coming to the nursery and would sit with her on the table and provide breakfast and a drink. My daughter now loves going to nursery, she would often say “I have lots of friends and the ladies are nice to me”. Very welcoming environment from all staff and the manager.”

    Louise L Monday 27th March 2017, Cherubs Ladybrook

The activities at the setting are wide ranging, including additional sessions offered e.g. Mini kicks and encourage development. The outside space is great and I love that my child gets fresh air and exercise whenever possible. The nursery manager is fantastic - she knows all the children and parents, is very approachable and the communication is great, particularly through the Facebook page. There is a good variety of food offered and my child always eats very well at nursery. My daughter is extremely happy here - thank you for looking after her so well.”

When I leave the twins with the lovely nursery assistants at Cherubs, I know they are very happy and settled especially when they are waving and saying goodbye to mummy. Their development is coming along beautifully with saying lots of words at home. Identifying shapes, colours and numbers up to 10. They have fantastic key workers as well. I couldn't wish for a better nursery and lovely ladies to look after my children. Highly recommend. Thank you so much.”

They spoke me through everything and asked what I would like my little boy to achieve from them. He has been attending full time since December 2016 and has come on so well. Every morning I drop him off to big smiles from all the girls and its the same when I pick him up after 9 hours!! I can't thank the girls enough for the attention they give him and the love he has for them!”

    KC Tuesday 28th February 2017, Cherubs Executive House
  • “After viewing two nurseries previously - and still feeling unsure, I went to visit Longdale for my son. I immediately loved the location and felt a sense of homeliness as I entered. Staff were very friendly, approachable and professional. The nursery was large, with a vast outdoor area, clean, and staff appeared organised and knowledgeable. After having all the information and being shown around - I felt like I had finally found a nursery that was suitable and made me feel at ease with the thought of leaving my boy in their care. Plus, on the way out, they even offered to change his nappy as he had filled it. Overall felt above and beyond expectation. My son loves it and at 14 months old, already is making progress in learning.”

    RR Monday 3rd April 2017, Cherubs Longdale
  • “Cherubs Pleasley is a wonderful, supportive nursery. My daughter only does one day a week but loves her time here, has made some lovely friends and gets really well supported from the staff.

When you pick up they tell you what she's been doing and what she's been doing and what she's eaten. All in all, it's a great nursery and they do a great job.”

    Terri 18th April 2018, Cherubs Worksop

The staff really comforted him and reassured me too and he settled after a short while, their support was lovely. All the staff at Cherubs Worksop are approachable and I have an excellent relationship with the pre-school staff - who regularly update me with my child's learning and development and share activities with me that my child has been doing that day. The preschool staff encourage my child to try new things/foods and genuinely want the best for all the children at the nursery.”
