“Choosing a school for my daughter was a very challenging decision for me. The reason being that I came from a minority ethnic group and it was important I leave my child in the care of a trusted team, since she could not express her self very well at the age she started school. I wanted a Nursery that has experience of caring for children from different ethnic backgrounds because of a past bullying experience that affected my son’s development and psychological wellbeing.
I visited many Schools around and visited Springboard twice before I made my decision. Based on the recommendations of my friend.
I was pleased on arrival because the security system in place and neatness of the environment. Then I met friendly staff members who are happy to provide necessary support. I am happy that the school is a training institution meaning that daughter is exposed to learning from people who are knowledgeable in child care and development milestones.
I have never regretted the decision of sending my child to Springboard. And also using facility as the 1st option for holidays club for my Son. I feel my daughter receives quality care at an affordable cost.
I can truly say that Gift loves Springboard and looks forward to coming to school every day. Even when she is supposed to be off school. Sometimes I have to dress her up in her uniform at home to make her happy.
She achieved her toilet training without stress. She demonstrates what she has been taught in school. She is more confident and independent. I will certainly recommend Springboard Nursery any time and day.”Nnenna O

“Springboard Nursery has enhanced my son’s developmental journey immensely over the last 18 months. The team are very warm and friendly and treat you like part of the family. They are very approachable and supportive and celebrate the successes the children achieve. My son has had some extra challenges along the way and they have adapted and implemented training to support him further. At first it was difficult for him to settle in a new environment and create new routines but through the dedication and support of the Springboard Team he now runs into nursery to see his friends and key workers.“Natalie W

“Since the first day my daughter Emmy started springboard nursery we were made to feel welcome and part of the nursery family. Emmy has come on fantastically with everything from numbers and letters to learning how a caterpillar turns into a butterfly to nocturnal animals she has grown from a baby to a very intelligent young girl. We have been on trips to cooking and having books days which all children and parents enjoyed. So overall I think springboard nursery is a fantastic place for your children to learn and grow in an amazing family setting thank you team!“Kelly H
