Greenacres Day Nursery
Kind, supportive and positive
My three year old and one year old really thrived with Margaret and her team. I was made to feel as though my boys (then 2.5 and 6 months) were the most fascinating children ever born, a sentiment I am sure I shared with every other parent! I know my eldest was a trial at times but the team were never anything but supportive, and helped me to put into context my child's behaviour against all of the other children they had cared for. It didn't seem so bad after all. The team are very well qualified and there isn't much they couldn't give advice on.
Over the course of the year that we were with Greenacres, my boys made a lot of friends, had a lot of fun and drew a lot of pictures! Play is a nice combination of structured and free-form, with different activities planned for each day. It is interesting to see a tableau being laid out the evening before for the next day's "shopkeepers" or "hotel" scene!
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the team at Greenacres. Had we not moved away, I have no doubt that we would have remained with them until both boys were at school.

In 2005, Sue flung open the door on the first visit and gave us both a big hug. 7 years and two children later, we leave for the last time. Your ‘give a hug when needed’ policy and liberal outdoor play areas was idyllic for our future children. From the home made healthy lunches to the individual attention that is paid to each child, it is obvious that great diligence and preparation is given to the running of your nursery. We highly recommend Greenacres as a place of warmth, security & learning

Caring, safe, stimulating and homely
Both of my children have had the pleasure of attending Greenacres over the past seven years. I had no qualms about my daughter starting as I knew my son had had such a great time there.
The owner is excellent. She hires wonderful, caring staff who stay - there isn't a quick turnover so you get to know each member of staff and they get to know your child, plus you and your family.
The nursery is accommodating, homely, educational, stimulating. Both my children have thrived there.

Homely, friendly, caring, helpful, trustworthy
Greenacres is a bungalow on a country road near Deanshanger. The atmosphere is relaxed, I always feel I can ask a question at any time. Staff are caring and professional. Children eat quite a wide range of food and drink. Toys are set up on a theme each day eg a shop, a hotel and parents sometimes come in and talk about their jobs. Staff are very safety conscious.
We haven't potty trained yet so can't comment on bathroom facilities.
