A.G.N.E.S Day Nursery

Last year I would've recommended this nursery but...

Last year I would've recommended this nursery but not now unfortunately. I've recently taken my daughter out for a few reasons.
I would pick my daughter up and get told 'She's been fine' but they wouldn't be able to tell me anything else about what she'd been doing in the 7 hours she had been there.
My friend picked her up one day and the staff didn't know which bag or coat was hers (She'd had the same bag for 2 years and coat for 4 months).
After 2 years they were still spelling her name wrong.
Her book would be filled in on average twice a month.
None of this sounds too alarming so far but when your daughter is going in so upset and doesn't have anything positive to say at the end of the day it becomes quite upsetting because you wonder if they even notice she's there and if she's valued or just a number? Her key worker was very nice and my daughter liked her, unfortunately she wasn't always in and a lot of the time the other staff were watching my daughter.
I would also hear things about my child through another parent but when I'd enquire I'd get told an alternate story.
My daughter also had trouble making friends because she would make friends, those children would then leave and it would take her months and months to make another couple of friends and then they would also leave. There was no effect made to help my daughter make friends although a few weeks before I took her out they did track her movements around the room.
This nursery used to allow parents to swap days, now it seems certain parents are awarded this convenience.
The nursery used to do a nativity play which was really lovely but not anymore.
I'm so disappointed things have turned out this way as when we first sent her there we were really pleased with Agnes. I did email the nursery manager with my concerns but she did not respond to any of them. My daughter has now settled and is happy at Glebe Pre-School.
The one good thing I will say is that Agnes did transfer the funding.

best preschool = best start

My children started at this preschool at the age of two and have grown into confident, social and funny little characters ready for their next stage of starting primary school. The care and support they have received from everyone at AGNES has allowed them to flourish and they could not have received a better start to their school life
The ladies are caring, patient and knowledgeable in the correct way children should be raised to create well rounded children who enjoy life and the many activities there are on offer at AGNES have supported their learning in a fun way.
Could not recommend AGNES preschool more, it gives exactly what it offers to children, A Great New Exciting Start.

Great family feel playschool

Both my children, Lottie 6 and Harrison 4 have attended A.G.N.E.S Day Nursery but my son was there the longest. He was there for 2 years and I was never uncomfortable leaving him as I was confident he would be well looked after. All the ladies at the nursery are fantastic, friendly and loving towards the children and my son had many favourites.

I am due to have another child in September and when he is old enough for playschool I will also be sending him to A.G.N.E.S.

I was quite sad that I wouldn't be having my morning chats to all the staff, all in all a lovely experience sending my children there.

Brilliant

The experience and dedication of the staff is fantastic. My daughter loves going to the nursery. She settled in easily and has never looked back. The atmosphere is great, the children are absorbed in their play and all are happy and confident. I will be very sad when my little one leaves.

Agnes - such a wonderful caring nursery

My daughter has been with Agnes for Over a year and she loves it, my son is due to start soon. I couldn't recommend Agnes more highly, the ladies are wonderful and the environment is perfect, no day is the same as the next.

Highly recommend.

Agnes day nursery was recommended to me from friends that have had siblings and children attend the nursery. From day one the staff have been brilliant with my son. He's come on leaps and bounds during his time there and is now totally ready for school. They've helped develop his social skills and his speech is now brilliant (something he struggled with when he started) not only do they support the children, they're there for the parents too. The hall is perfect setting for the nursery, with outside space too. The girls are constantly adding new features to the hall, making it a bright and exciting place to be. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a nursery, and we're all going to miss them terribly.

Friendly, caring, supportive staff. Highly...

This is a lovely preschool/nursery. I'm about to send my third child. Both older children loved coming here. The ladies are so friendly. Really nice care and an ever improving place with new play areas added and garden area. Can't fault them.
