Happy Parents

What Parents Think

My child has now been at Gateway for 6 months, and I cannot express how impressed I have been with the setting, he has thrived and made so much progress in all areas of his development.

He is always excited to come into nursery and enjoys coming home and telling me all about the exciting things he has been doing. We are always greeted with a smile and a warm welcome by the staff and I leave my child feeling confident and content that he is in a warm, caring and nurturing environment.

Management are always visible and I feel that I can approach them anytime I need to. Thank you for all that you do!

MN 2020

I just wanted to express my and my families overwhelming thanks and appreciation for all you have done for all three of my children at Gateway.

I would like to say that the staff at gateway have been absolutely incredible with all of my children, and gateway has also always been so flexible and understanding with us as parents who work shifts, accommodating last minutes changes and cancellations.  


My children and I talk about various staff members with fond memories, some of whom had great bonds with my children over the years and I feel incredibly sad that the family will be leaving and my youngest son was the last to pass through gateway.

Please could my most sincere thanks be passed on to all of the amazing ladies who have looked after my children over the years and I wish them all personally and the nursery best wishes for the future.

As a parent, I chose Gateway after researching what the different local provisions had to offer. Naturally, I felt the need to evaluate my choices- don’t we all as parents who want the best for their children?

After our sessions started at Gateway, it was the discussions with my children that assured me they were in the right place. The comments they made and the stories they shared were always full of excitement and positivity.


My children felt at home at Gateway; they were loved, their days were enriched with a wealth of activities and their love of learning was nourished. From the first day my eldest child started, I never looked back. I couldn’t have asked for anything more and I can’t recommend them enough.”


Our little one settled so well at Gateway, as a family we were made to feel welcome from day one. He only did a few settle sessions and he was confident to go in on his own, the staff in his room were so friendly and reassuring, they built such a lovely relationship with him from the very beginning and he talked about them all the time at home. When it was time for him to move up to the next room, we thought he’d struggle with the transition but he absolutely loved his new room, the staff made a real effort to get to know him quickly and build relationships.


He runs in every morning now with a huge smile on his face, we’ve experienced a few different childcare settings and as a parent it’s a wonderful feeling knowing your little one is happy to be there, well looked after and thriving. All of his needs are met and he has made some great progress socially and developmentally since starting.

We have been really impressed with the level of communication from the nursery, the staff in his room keep us filled in on his day and what he’s been up to and regularly give him next steps to work towards. The management are always there to greet you with a smile each morning and at pick up and nothing is too much trouble for them, they know all their children and families and always support them in any way they can.

I would highly recommend Gateway to anyone looking for a high-quality childcare provider! We can’t fault them.

Covid meant my little poppet hadn’t spent much time socialising with other babies or many adults before he started in Daisys. His world was really just Mummy & Daddy.

I found the support from Daisys staff, especially his key worker Alicia outstanding. They were attentive in taking on board his home routines, helped him feel reassured, offering him affection in the way I would & kept me well informed. They were kind when I struggled with goodbyes. He adapted well with their attention to his needs & he absolutely loves nursery now. He gets excited to arrive each morning, eager to get in to play. Because of their nurturing, warmth and encouragement in his individual development he’s a thriving and confident toddler & I feel less guilty about being a working Mummy.
