My daughter had many happy years full time at Woodpeckers. The staff are all very warm, caring, fun and fully engaged in the children. The activities are varied and creative and they really seem to take into account individual childrens' interests. There is a strong emphasis on good manners and social skills, which are a positive reinforcement of what you'd expect at home. The food is healthy. Like most parents, I'd rather not have to work, but since I do, I consider Woodpeckers to be an excellent alternative. All the children seem to have a lovely sociable time (my daughter grumbles if I arrive too early to collect!) and I would recommend it to anyone without hesitation.
If I could leave much higher star rating to Woodpeckers, I would. Both my kids love it; one year old doesn't look back at me when I drop him off, off he goes to play right away and greats the staff with smile. He comes home very happy after being there. All staff are so nice, I will be sad when he goes to a big school. My now 7 year old, has met friends for life there; every time we go past, she remembers the days she used to go there and loves going in to get her brother now. Such a lovely place.
I cannot fault Woodpeckers; the staff are fantastic, caring and knowledgeable, and my son loves attending. The activities are superb and the child lead learning opportunities are just what I'd expect from such a well respected nursery.
In our eyes, woodpeckers is an outstanding nursery and my Connie has thrived, being well cared for and nurtured. What I have found especially wonderful is the way they include the families and involve them in the woodpeckers family, brilliant christmas party, annual trips to frinton and special events through the year. More recently the hatching of their own baby chicks has just been a wonderful experience for the children.
My son goes there and has for a year and he loves it.
The staff are great the facilities are excellent and throughout the year there are gatherings for everyone to partake in :)
Outstanding nursery, with fantastic staff that have made Gabriel feel very welcome Indeed !! 5/5 stars ***** keep up the brilliant work.
I cannot recommend 'Peckers', as my daughter calls it, highly enough. She cries if we drive past and don't drop her off. Every single staff member is so kind and friendly, fabulous place.
My daughter has attended woodpeckers since April and absolutely loves it. The staff are brilliant, they helped her settle really well initially and now each morning she asks if it is a nursery day as she looks forward to it so much. The range of activities and outings are great and not to mention the lovely home cooked lunches! It really is a home from home environment.
Amazing, amazing place. The staff are fabulous and all have a really close, personal relationship with our children. Joshua loves it, I believe it has bought out the best in him and also been the reason he is so advanced in speech along with our coaching at home. Always so happy and quick to accomodate your needs and they are just so lovely
