Recommended By Parents

Playbox Nursery is by far the best nursery I have ever come across and they have helped my son settle in so well.  Lovely staff and I am kept well informed on my child's day and future events.  They have helped me potty train my son and he has already learnt so much even from going just one day a week


The level of communication between staff and parents is excellent and the detailed feedback we receive on my daughter's activity and progress is a reflection of the close attention the children receive there.  Huge gratitude to all the staff


My daughter settled so quickly into this nursery from the age of 2.  I am convinced she settled so easily because of the warmth of the staff, their patience, their encouragement and the level of thought they clearly put in to the learning programme.  She is happy every time I drop her off and collect her. 


I moved my daughter to Playbox from another nursery and couldn't be happier with my decision.  The staff are simply brilliant and my daughter loves going here.  Thank you Sarah and everyone at Playbox


Playbox have been so supportive to our family and we are just so grateful to them for providing excellent childcare for our children


We have a Babysdays account which Playbox regularly update with diary entries and photos, which are great as they allow us to keep up to date with what our daughter has been doing during the day at Playbox and how she is progressing through the early years curriculum.


All the staff are friendly, approachable and amazing with the children.  They do all they can to help, nothing is too much trouble.  Our daughters have thrived there, our eldest left last year completely school ready and our youngest always looks forward to going to Playbox.  


Such a wonderful nursery, the staff are so lovely, kind and helpful towards the children and the nursery itself is well thought out, the children have a great environment to play and learn


At Playbox we are committed to promoting high quality childcare in a secure, safe and fun environment.

This enables the children to learn through play whilst encouraging them to access a variety of planned activities, promoting each child to develop in self- esteem and confidence.  All our activities are carefully planned by each child’s key person to ensure each child’s need are met each session.
