“Having now sent all three of our children to The Minors Nursery (both boy and girl) I can safely say that it has become a home away from home. Viv and her team make the transition to starting school such a gentle, warm and nurturing one that very soon these teachers are seen as extended family. The only time I have ever had tears was during the holidays – because my girls MISSED their school (100% truth)! Communication with parents is extremely impressive, ranging from newsletters to a weekly “stay and play” and with the door always wide open to pop in for a chat. Parents’ concerns are never ignored, never belittled; always taken seriously and addressed immediately with the utmost professional and sensitive balance of care. The children are so, so happy at Minors and there is a joyful calmness that exudes from the school at the very knock of that green front door. My children have learned so much and grown so much in their two years of nursery because of this perfect equilibrium between teaching and guiding – added to the weekly music and drama lessons, the mud kitchen, art and educational play. We have made friends for life – not only with fellow pupils and parents but also, I firmly believe, with the staff. I cannot recommend The Minors Nursery highly enough.”
Emily, mother of ex pupils Eloise, Aline and current pupil Zebbie.
“We think Minors is outstanding. We have been consistently impressed by the level of care and engagement each and every member of staff has with the children. All staff have an incredible ability to combine learning with pure enjoyment. The importance of confidence, sense of self and the utter joy of exploration and understanding are core values that Minors instil in each and every student. The team at Minors are always striving to deliver the best for the children in their care. We could not think more highly of this nursery or the staff that work there. ”
Emma & Michael, parents of ex pupils Rosalind and Hannah
“Minors is an outstanding nursery. This nursery is the most friendly, nurturing and supportive environment that you could imagine for your child. The teachers are natural, engaging and couldn’t be more accommodating and friendly. The progression in my daughter is incredible – now only in the first term of ‘Big Stars’, she is almost at the same stage as her older sister after a year of school. The facilities are excellent and well maintained. Communication is regular, informative and prompt. This is a beautiful nursery. The demand for Minors is proof that a space here is like gold dust.”
Vicky, parent of ex pupil Poppy
“Following their father’s footsteps, both our boys went to Minors nursery and were extremely happy there. The team of teachers is both highly qualified but also kind, caring and helpful. They create a happy environment in which the children develop, learn and become happy, confident, well rounded. They prepare them nicely to start school both emotionally and academically. We would highly recommend Minors to friends and family. In fact my sister’s son is coming to Minors in a few years!”
Diane and Khaled, parents of ex pupils Tarek, Teymour and future pupil Malek
We have had two children pass through Minors and are now on our third! We are huge fans of the approach that Viv and the team at Minors take to the children’s care and education. They make the children’s experience fun, varied and educational and the pastoral care is excellent. Our older children both look fondly back to their time at Minors and our youngest is already making herself very much at home there! It’s a terrific nursery and we would recommend it to anyone.
Carolyn, mother of ex pupils Isabella and Benjamin and current Little Star Emilia.
Minors is such a special place and my children continue to thrive here. It is incredibly nurturing whilst keeping a firm eye on educational goals, and yet all the children feel is the fun, especially on ‘choosing’ day! Mrs Thompson and the teachers are always so kind and are very welcoming in the classroom. One of our highlights is the Big Stars end of year show – we have been bowled over by the performance, the sets, the costumes…truly magical for the children and parents!
Sarah, mother of ex pupils Matteo and Bea and current Little Star Elisa.
We first joined The Minors Nursery in Sep 2010 with my first child Sonny.
Now in our 8th year I can say the nursery has gone from strength to strength. When you thought it couldn’t get any better it keeps evolving in all the best and latest learning techniques for children. Empathy, nurturing, trust and lots of fun are just a few of the wonderful things happening at The Minors Nursery School. Imagination and creativity, exploring and learning through hands on play. The staff are wonderful and so kind. The fact that most of them have been there as long as me says it all. It’s the best nursery in town by far! Thank you for all the years of looking after me and my children!!
Clare and Toby, parents of Sonny, Cooper, Rosie and current Big Star Amber
My two older sons both attended Minors, and we did not hesitate to send our daughter there this term – in fact, we were delighted to be coming back. The school is a welcoming, loving and supportive environment, where little children are given the best possible start in their educational journey. My boys learnt to love school, enjoyed new experiences such as computing, drama and the fantastic end of term shows, and made firm friends.
Emma, mother of ex pupils Leo and Arthur and current Little Star Sadie
“The Minors is the perfect place for our four children to start their education journey in a loving and stimulating environment. Within days of their arrival, you can see the magic start to happen — their confidence grows, their vocabulary increases, and the joy spreads across their faces as they look forward to school each day.”
Melissa, mother of Jacob, Elizabeth, Rosalie and current Little Star Gabriel
