Truly a Great Nursery
My daughter was at Reflections from the age of 5 months to 4 and a half years. She loved the indoor space, freedom to express what she would like to do during the day. Plenty of outside activities. My daughter also went on the Forest School trips for a year and loved the outdoors and the exploring. The food was always of a good quality and it varied. The staff give you feedback each time you pick your child up so you are always aware of how they are and what they have been doing. This nursery is worth every penny.

Quite Simply the best
My daughter attended Reflections from age 15 months through to 4.3 years of age. It was quite simply the best start we could provide her in life - every element of her care was simply amazing.
The project based environment where the kids lead the learning is one of the keys to the success of the nursery. The kids are engaged and involved in what they are doing which creates a natural curiosity. The resources are amazing yet I can't remember seeing anything Fischer Price or such there. It's all stuff that can be used to drive the childrens creativity and imagination.
The staff are well trained, interested in what they are doing and good at it. The children bond with the adults and there is a climate of joint experiences with the adults as excited about the kids development as they or the parents are. I did not meet one staff member who did not impress me. The incredibly high standards are maintained by the room leaders and Yvonne Barr.
The food provided to the kids is prepared on the premises and is a high quality. It is also plentiful with regular opportunities throughout the day for the children to eat. They will not go hungry!
Another key opportunity offered to the kids is Forest School. I can't recommend this highly enough - the kids develop social and teamwork skills and well as getting a couple of hours a week to run around in a privately rented wood. Their confidence grows as does their ability to manage risky play.
I am trying to think of a downside to sending your kid there but I can't. It really is that good. You might look around and see that it costs a bit more than other local nurseries but for me, the opportunity to have my child at one of the best nurseries in the country put pay to any reservations I had.
Outstanding nursery and recommended without reservation.

Cannot rate highly enough - absolutely excellent
My daughter attended Reflections for three years; she has just started Reception. I cannot say enough about how wonderful this nursery is. First, the staff and practitioners genuinely care about the children. They are constantly seeking ways to improve, and to stimulate the children. The project-based work is great for the children, as they can explore a range of things associated with a topic, rather then being introduced briefly. The materials used in the nursery are natural, meaning the children really use their imaginations and cooperate to play and create. The children are given the opportunity to explore and learn about what their own interests. Forest School gives them the opportunity and freedom to explore nature. Reflections' philosophy has given my child a strong sense of independence, curiosity, and confidence. The food is amazing, and my child loved the vegetable garden, which I think has helped her eat her veg! When we started there in September 2011, we didn't find the cost significantly higher than other nurseries, when food and nappies were factored in - I'm not sure if this is still true. I couldn't have asked for a better nursery for my kid, and we are very sad to have graduated.

A Fantastic Nursery
My daughter Darcey attended the nursery for just over 3 years and I can't praise the staff at Reflections enough. They all have a passion for their job which shines through in the care they provide. Forest school is a wonderful experience and increased Darcey's confidence in preparation for big girl school. I would without hesitation recommend Reflections

An excellent nursery, can't recommend it highly enough.
Both my children have attended Reflections, and loved it. The setting is ideal, with such a wonderful outside area and the staff are amazing. My children are quite different and I felt confident that their needs were being met and my expectations exceeded. The staff worked hard to ensure that the children were well looked after, and explored a range of topics to encourage learning in so many different areas. My youngest attended Forest School, which is without doubt one of the greatest experiences we could hope for him to enjoy every week - he is off to school in September and is still asking me when he will be going to Forest School again! I fear that after such a wealth of 'outdoor' learning, school will seem quite hemmed in. Both my children were sad to leave, as was I. I can't recommend Reflections highly enough.
