What the parents have said…

“Cliffe House has provided excellent childcare for both our children. It is a caring environment in which they have been happy, whilst developing the confidence and skills needed for school”.

Richard & Sunita

“As a first time mum I was so nervous about my little boy going to nursery, especially as he was only 4 months old, but I have been delighted with how he has settled. The nursery feels like home from him and the staff are always so supportive – I love reading his daily information sheets and receiving all his pictures and paintings”


“The care and attention our child receives is second-to-none and the pride that each member of staff takes in his achievements is overwhelming. He loves every second he spends at nursery and takes it for granted it’s part of his daily routine”

Rhian & Philip

“What an excellent Nursery ! My daughter has been there nearly a year and we couldn’t be happier. She comes home with a smile on her face and we receive lots of constructive feedback from staff about her progress. The variance of food is particularly good with a 4 week rota – full of healthy choices and the odd treat.”
“The nursery is brill and highly recommended”

What the staff say…

“Having worked for Cliffe House for 12 years, I have seen the nursery grow.  I have been encouraged to take part in training to help my own personal development and am proud to work with a greateam of people.”


“It is an amazing and rewarding feeling to see how much a child can learn during their time at nursery through exciting activities and varied opportunities”


“The nursery is owned by a very friendly, yet professional couple who with the support from knowledgeable staff, run a setting that is a warm, welcoming place enriched with many wonderful learning opportunities for children”


“The children are exceptionally happy and all the staff work hard to ensure the children are thriving”

What our children think…

“I like nursery because we have good story books about trolls and bears and we do lots of counting and I get to play on a proper phone.”


“You can climb and play football and see real frogs in the wildlife garden – my mummy hates frogs.”


“I like to play outside on the slides and I like my friends.”


“We can dress up and make things and my lunch is in my tummy.”


“Its really, really, really fantastic.”

What our Ofsted think…

“The quality of care provided for children is exemplary; provision for their physical and emotional well-being is excellent.”

“Staff are positive role models and consistently give children much positive praise and encouragement. As a result, children are well behaved and use good manners without being prompted to do so.”

“The relationship with parents is paramount to the provision, therefore, a parent representative is in place. As a result, partnership with parents is excellent and they are fully included in their children’s learning and development.”

“Parents express extremely positive opinions of the setting and praise the staff in glowing terms. They feel that the setting is not just somewhere to drop children off; it operates as an extension of the family.”

“Exemplary management skills help to retain highly skilled and qualified practitioners who are extremely well motivated and whose dedication to the children they care for is evident in all areas of the setting.”
