Growing Up Green


 I LOVE my nursery mummy

“Our child is really, very happy at GUG and spontaneously said ‘I LOVE my nursery mummy’ which is the best indicator of all. The staff are great and the activities are varied. I would highly recommend GUG.”  – Abi

She’s come on leaps and bounds

“I also wanted to send an email to let you know how happy we are with the nursery. Our child enjoys it so much. She loves Ella, even speaks to her on play phones, real phones…ha. I was so nervous and anxious to send her to nursery at the beginning, she’s come on leaps and bounds since being there and is always so excited to go to nursery. So thank you so much for looking after our baby. She’s the most amazing little person in the world to us and it’s so nice to know she’s happy and settled in so well and bonded with the staff. Rich and I couldn’t be happier with how well you are looking after her. Thank you.”  – Amanda

Helped prepare her for school

“We have had two children be cared for by Growing Up Green and can’t speak highly enough of them. They have both made lasting friendships with other children there. The range of activities provided is exceptional, and there have been so many opportunities for off site visits. Both of our children have thoroughly enjoyed their days at Growing Up Green. The staff have always listened to feedback from us, and our children, and personalised their learning in response. Our four year old daughter has developed a real confidence with writing thanks to the support of staff, and her confidence in numbers has grown a great deal. The nursery have really helped prepare her for school.” – Russell and Jess

Staff are caring and kind

“My daughter has been at GUG for nearly four years and will soon be leaving to start school in September. I cannot praise the nursery highly enough. The standard of care provided throughout her time there has been exceptional and she has been extremely happy and settled since she started as a baby. As other reviewers have mentioned, it is the staff that make it such a wonderful place – they are caring and kind and they really know the children individually and treat them with respect and affection. The food they are given is wonderful and home-made with an amazing lunch and snacks included in the daily rate. As a family, we have been so happy with GUG and would recommend them to any parent looking for the best nursery for their children.” – C.G

A huge part of our lives

“We have had two children at Growing Up Green over the last 5 years and I can’t recommend them enough. Key to nursery care is the staff. GUG staff are enthusiastic, caring and wonderful. When we started with childcare we were at two nurseries and it was almost immediately clear that GUG shone out way above the other nursery we were attending. GUG have been a huge part of our lives as a family for all this time and we will be eternally grateful!” – L.B

Kid’s smile upon arrival says it all

“Brilliant nursery, highly recommended! Both of my children attend GUG, from 8 months old. Right from the first settle, my children have been really well looked after and the staff have been wonderful in providing feedback. Great variety of food, indoor and outdoor play, creative work and occasional face painting for older kiddies and baking treats to enjoy at home. Kid’s smile upon arrival says it all. Staff always friendly and polite, even at the end of the day. Also organise socials for parents which is lovely touch.” – N.W

Solid and fun environment

“Both my children have attended Growing Up Green in Preston Road. My little girl went from two and a half until school. My two year old has been there just over a year now. At each stage, GUG offers quality care which is warm and friendly but structured and educational too. This is a solid and fun environment with excellent positive and energetic staff, what more could a parent ask for? The team really care about the children and this shows in all they do.”  – J.S

The food is amazing

“My eldest has been attending Growing Up Green since he was 9 months old, he is now 4. The staff are so well trained, caring and genuinely care about the children’s development. The food is amazing ( I wish I ate like that every day). My son is boisterous but they manage him well by being firm but fair. They have just renovated the garden and it is lovely.” –  C.R
