We chose Oak house for our first and loved it so much we sent our second too. The care received is exemplary and genuinely feels like the boys second home; which when they spend a fair chunk of time at nursery is what you want. The nursery are always doing a variety of fun things, special celebration days and inventive ways of play. We couldn’t recommend Oak House enough.

Both our children have had a wonderful time at Oak House Nursery. Our eldest started in 2019 and finished when she started school last year. Our youngest has now been there 2 years. All the staff make an effort to get to know each child on an individual basis, the communication is great from updates on how your child has eaten to photos of what they have been up to. The outside space is fabulous with a covered area so the children can enjoy being outdoors in most weathers. Children are encouraged to try different cuisines and different cultures and religions are introduced in an age appropriate way, particularly celebrating the diversity of the children within nursery which is a great experience for them all.

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Oak House Nursery to anyone!

November 2023

Our experience at oak house has been more than we could have hoped. Our children have learned and developed in so many ways and most importantly they have always been excited about going to nursery everyday. The staff go to go great lengths to create a fair environment where each child is given the care and attention required to meet their needs. Oak house is also exceptional at involving parents through different feedback platforms and incorporating the children’s lives outside of nursery to supplement their learning and keep them engaged.

It really is the ideal environment for children to flourish so I could not recommend it enough to parents/carers who want to that for their children.
