Don’t just take our word for it…

“My daughter had the best few years at Dawny’s. She never had a bad day or didn’t want to go in, always loving every minute of her time there. It is a very warm, happy and welcoming environment where my daughter felt very safe. The staff are caring and considerate and always actively doing fun and challenging activities. I could not recommend Dawny’s highly enough! Thanks Dawn and team!” Jodi Dunne

“My daughter loves her days at Dawnys! The girls are all brilliant, highly recommend!” Kelly Huskinson

“So today Olivia and Maddy saw Teressa at their new school, they were so so excited to show her their new classroom, coat pegs and new friends. They showed them what they do and what they get up to to. Olivia literally squeezed the life out of Teressa when she saw her smile emoticon
I just think all the girls at Dawnys are amazing and I would recommend your nursery to everyone.
I have watched Olivia grow in confidence whilst at Dawnys, and it was so lovely that Teressa came to visit them to learn more about how the kids deal with the transition from nursery to school.
Thanks guys you made two little girls very happy today

“After circle time Mary, Joseph and the nativity characters, including the sheep and donkey are lined up to wash their hands before lunch…
We thought it was so cute to watch her play with the characters (and us as we were invited to join them for circle time) we should share it with you to show the positive impact her Caterpillar days with you have on her…” Sarah Colborne

“Well 1 year accomplished, 52 weeks.
100 little bruises and 1000 kissed cheeks,
14 hard workers with a continuous smile,
You guys are amazing, I’ve known that all the while. 
12 long meetings, and 1000 suggestions,
10 tired heads and 1 million questions,
Routine and chaos, it’s what we live for,
Kissing them better, it’s the best kind of chore.
40 pairs of shoes, the coats and the hats 
Getting them ready could be it’s own act. 
10 minutes outside, before we rush back in,
Dinner is ready (most goes in the bin!) 
Pasta and rice, it’s all they’ll eat!
Unless of course it’s something sweet. 
1000 happy memories, 100 sets of tears 
Not all of those the children, I admit to you in fear!! 
1 gleaming new soft play, 1 million grins,
15 accident forms, and several grazed chins!
1000 answers to the question ‘why’
Reluctantly answered with a depressing sigh 
1 millions cuddles , many fun filled days,
Messy activities backed up by praise,
A job with real meaning, a job with real love,
A job at Dawnys goes beyond and above!!” Amy Willmott (Nursery Practitioner)

 

“Dawny’s Daycare is a lovely nursery, all the staff are friendly and good with the children it’s like a big family. My little boy has been going since November 2012 and can’t fault them in any way he has gained so much already in this short space of time, now I cant wait for my little girl to start next year to join in the fun, learn and grow.  I would recommend them to anyone and I feel lucky to have found them.” Katie Talbot

 

“Oliver has been at Dawnys for 6 months now and the way in which his development has come on and he has grown in confidence provides me with assurances that Dawnys is the right place for him.

The friendliness and professionalism of the staff leave me feeling that Oliver is their number one priority. The environment feels intimate and safe and hes provided with numerous learning opportunities and activities.  The iwatch system is great, allowing me the opportunity to log on anytime at work to catch a glimpse of what hes getting up to.  Oliver loves Dawny’s so much that it’s a challenge to get him to leave there each evening – I guess there is no better endorsement than that!” – Rachel McAuley

 

“Absolutely love this nursery. All the staff are so friendly and professional, my little girl loves them all – so much so, she never wants to come home.

The girls do such a wide variety of activities with the children from visiting parks and libraries to cooking and dancing as well as educational. At the age of 3 and a half my daughter already knows what her 5 yr old cousin is currently learning at school.

I cannot recommend this nursery highly enough and already have a place reserved for my new arrival!” – Lisa Lewis

 

“I just want to take this opportunity to thank you, Lauren, Amy, Ellie, Emma and the rest of the team for everything you’ve done for Daisy. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it.

She has become more confident throughout her time at Dawny’s and has raved about certain  activities, inparticular making fruit skewers and cake decorating. However, the amounts of arts and crafts daisy has parcipated in, is so vast there is too much to mention. But she has loved every minute of it!

We saw a huge movement in her development with numbers and letters. As she was only with you for two mornings a week, it clearly shows how much time, energy and patience is given.

It has also been very reassuring to know Daisy has been so well looked after. Thank you all so much for being so thoughtful and caring towards Daisy and having the time to listen to her needs in a busy environment. I am so very grateful.

Thank you all again for making Daisy’s time at Dawny’s a wonderful and enjoyable experience.” – Emma Welburn 

 

“Dawny’s Daycare is like one big happy family. Olivia loves the time she spends there with all her little friends  – she is always so happy at the end of each day to the point that she doesn’t ever want to leave.  I  am able to leave her in the morning knowing she is happy and in a safe environment and is cared for by all off Dawn’s ‘fabulous staff’ – and we love the fact we can tune in at any time and see what she is up to with iwatch :O)” – Louise Jenkins

 

“A huge thank you to you and your staff for the dedication, passion, warmth and professionalism you have shown our daughter. Her confidence and social interaction has improved greatly. She has grown in many aspects of her development. Thank you so much for making her feel so welcome, safe and for your enthusiasm.” – Maria De Matos 

 

“My son, Zavier, has been attending Dawny’s Day Care for more than a year and he absolutely loves it! As a parent, my child‘s safety, happiness and wellbeing are of paramount importance to me and Dawny’s Day Care provides this and more. There is a wide range of interactive activities that promote physical, moral, social and emotional development. Healthy well balanced meals are provided every day. I get daily one to one feedback on Zavier’s day and this gives me satisfaction and peace of mind. At Dawny’s Day, every child is treated as an individual but at the same time its’ one happy family where you are greeted by a smiling face every day!” –  Cathrine Paramu-Field

 

“The professionalism and care of the staff and fantastic interaction between them and the children make Dawny’s a nurturing, safe and secure learning and playing environment for my daughter Hannah. She has been attending for almost a year now and her tales of her mornings at nursery are lovely to hear – whether it has been out to feed the ducks, painting pictures, treasure hunts, making cakes, seeing the fire engines and trains or telling us the phonic songs (correcting us if we are not quite right with the words!) and explaining her letters and numbers. At the age of 3 ½ she confidently spells out letters whenever she sees a word and one of her favourite things is to practise making letter shapes using anything from crayons to twigs! The fun way in which she has been able to absorb this is, I am sure, in no small measure due to the dedication and enthusiasm shown by the staff at Dawny’s. Without exception they have been fantastic, flexible and accommodating in their approach with Hannah. She loves it!” – Hilary Keegan
