  • amy page on OFSTED Report – Outstanding in all Areasa very well done for recieving outstanding results on your ofsted report it really does show when you walk into the nursery as all the children and staff have smiles on there faces and it is such a happy enviroment. My littleboy has had a great year at the close nursery and he always tells me how much he enjoyed his day and talks about all the other children his age and the little members of the nursery. i am upset to see him leave for big school but know he has had the best possible start to get ready for it and i hope i can get my little girl in for the january term start so she has the same :). Thank you very much! x
  • Sadie Kennard on OFSTED Report – Close to PerfectWell done to all of the staff at The Close Nursery. The brilliant scores are a great reflection of the nursery. I will be sad when our son leaves for school in September. I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone (and I will be sending my next son here when the time comes!) Congratulations!
  • Carrie Cage on OFSTED Report – Outstanding in all AreasWell Done to the wonderful staff and management at The Close Nursery for achieving Outstanding In All Areas on the recent Ofsted report. My son has been coming here for almost 2 years and its evident how well run the nursery is and how hands on the staff are with each child, not just my little boy. My little boy is a very confident happy young lad and I have the wonderful staff to thank for this!! Well Done!!!
  • Claire & David on OFSTED Report – Outstanding in all AreasTo Sandra & the Team This outcome is not surprising; in fact, it's very well deserved! All staff are friendly and welcoming but also hard working and passionate about the nursery & all the children. My daughter has enjoyed her time with you all and it will be sad to see her move to big school, but it's also pleasing to know that she's been given a good grounding from expectional staff. Congratulations to you all & keep up the good work!
  • J Simester on Recent eventsI'm often asked by other parents which nursery my daughter attends and am usually met with a positive response about how they have heard that is is a really good there. The staff and manager at The Close Nursery really earn their good reputation with their high standards and expectations. It is a cosy, non-intimidating environment in which the children seem happy and content.
  • D Clarke on Recent eventsIt has been reassuring to me as a mum to observe the love and care that the staff have shown to my daughter during her time at The Close. They are always interested in what she is/has been doing. She skips in each day and cannot wait to see her friends. She is always keen to tell me what activities she has taken part in, and also what trips they have been on, be it to the fair, or bowling etc. I would not hesitate to use the nursery again, and will wholeheartedly recommmend it to friends and family.
  • Lisa & Mark Readman on OFSTED Report – Close to PerfectThe wonderful scores in the Ofsted report are well-deserved; many congratulations! We are particularly pleased to see the Outstanding score awarded to "the extent to which children develop skills for the future" - as we have seen the benefit of this in action. When our daughter left the nursery for Foundation Stage schooling, she was well-prepared for all the educational and social challenges she faced at "big school" - due in no small part to the care, support and teaching she received at The Close. Well done to you all.
  • Jane and Alton Ainley on OFSTED Report – Close to PerfectCongratulations to all at The Close on such an excellent Ofsted. It reflects all we know and love about the nursery and the great team that work there.
  • Cynthia Jordan on OFSTED Report – Close to PerfectWell done to all of you. You truly deserve such good comments.
