Below are Testimonials written by parents about the Nursery and the Staff. We are very proud of our Nursery and work very hard to build relationships with both the children and their parents/carers so are very grateful to have such lovely feedback.



"Best nursery around!"

I can honestly say that Snowdrop cottage is the best nursery around. My son James joined the preschool room when the nursery first opened.

The care he received by all the staff was outstanding. The preschool teachers all do a fantastic job, not only caring for James but helping him get ready for school. James would always come home happy, telling me stories of what he had done during the day. The outside learning activities really suited James and I was pleased that staff took the class outside to explore play and let them be children.

Amy and Hannah are very approachable and have always done their utmost to accommodate extra sessions or changes if they can.

When my younger child joined the baby room I knew that he was in capable hands. Sarah the chef was amazing at catering for his dairy allergy and staff would always check with me first before trying new foods.

I would thoroughly recommend this nursery to anyone who wants quality childcare, you will not be disappointed. I often walk past the nursery, and when I do I see the staff playing and interacting with the children. It’s like a breath of fresh air as you can tell that they really are enjoying looking after the children.



"Warm and loving teachers"

Snowdrop cottage has warm and loving teachers, a magical back garden to play in and a literacy based curriculum that encourages a lot of reading and life long learning. Plus being located in town allows the children easy access to Monkton park and other cultural events.



"Delighted with the level of care"

We are delighted with the level of care provided by the whole team at Snowdrop cottage nursery. They provide a warm, calm and nurturing environment for the children and it feels like an extension of our family, without compromising the professional manner in which the care is delivered.



"Complete confidence"

We would recommend Snowdrop cottage nursery with complete confidence to any parents looking for fantastic childcare support from a dedicated team who ensure the children’s interests are always priority.




Amy took me around on my first visit and I fell in love with the whole thing, home from home! The house is laid out really well and the garden is fantastic. Amy told me that they don’t have lots of plastic toys, the children are encouraged to use their imagination which I believed is a little lost treasure in this new generation.

In the preschool room, a few cornflake boxes made their amazing robot and the children loved it!

Ronan and I had an induction (I say both of us as I found it harder than Ronan!). It was probably the hardest and most emotional time for me but all the staff were fantastic. Sarah their chef caters for all dietary requirements and talked me through what she would do for Ronan.

I can’t say enough about everyone, especially Steph and Gemma who are Ronan’s key workers. They have all shown real passion for their work and the children they look after. Ronan always smiles getting out of the car in the morning when I drop him off and is always happy when I pick him up…..what more can I say!



"Very Happy"

We feel very happy with the nursery and Alice really enjoys her days. The staff are always helpful and caring with Alice. We are so please that we have recommended Snowdrop cottage to our friends.




Everyday my child tells me of his adventures at “School” (Nursery) from exploring the garden to find insects to painting, cutting, singing and much more. Going back a year I was very impressed that the staff in the toddler room recognised that Ashlee was becoming frustrated in there as his vocabulary was a lot more forward than his peers as well as his level of understanding so after some discussion it was agreed that we would try out Preschool. After some settling in periods he moved up and has thrived! I felt that this showed excellent practice as you did what was right for my child based on his individual needs.
