“Being a self employed mum I had to return to work earlier than most and finding a nursery I was happy to leave a 3 month old baby that I was breastfeeding was a task I did not relish. However ever since Oliver started his 2 days at the Old Station Nursery I have been overwhelmed by the care he has been given. The staff here don’t just do their job, they show the kind of love and tenderness that you would expect from a family member. They know his unique traits and habits and even point new ones out to me. The Nursery have been an integral part of Oliver’s development from how well he speaks to creating a non fussy eater (bliss to a busy mum!)
It is also the differences I see in Oliver compared to his friends who do not go to nursery that also impresses me. He is far more outgoing in new environments and easily mixes with children and adults alike and has learn’t valuable life lessons even at this tender age. My initial guilt of leaving him so young has turned into a real positive and given him a distinctive advantage in life already and I can clearly see the differences between him and his peers. I put this down to the combination of my own parenting and that of the nursery which has given Oliver the best of both worlds and exposed him to situations that only each party can provide.
The Old Station Nursery has changed my view on childcare. Rather than feeling that a full time mum is the best option I now firmly believe that not sending Oliver to nursery would have given him a disadvantage. There are certain things even the best mum in the world cannot replicate at home. But what the old station nursery does is create another home and for that I am sincerely grateful.”
“Oliver is in pre-school now – he has been at Old Station since he was a baby. He is totally at home there, loves the staff and he has a very special relationship with his key worker. The staff are dedicated, enthusiastic, patient and, most importantly, caring.”
“I’d like to take this opportunity to say a hug thank you once again for all your help and support and that of your fantastic staff. Both Megan and Kai have thoroughly enjoyed their time at the old station nursery and they (and I) are really going to miss all of you.”
“Thank you for everything you have done for Harry over the last four years he is really going to miss you all.”
“Thank you for all your help and support the past 14 months. Words can not describe how grateful I am and how much Emily loves you all. Thank you so much again.”
