Barnies Day Nurseries and Pre-schools

Parent's Views

Here we share some of the lovely comments that parents have made about Barnies:

"Morning, my daughter P went to the Hadlow nursery and started Reception in September 2020 and today they have had “dress as what you’d like to be when you’re older” day at school. I just thought I’d drop a message and say that you all did a wonderful job with her and that she has chosen to go to school as a barnies teacher today and she’s wearing her barnies top to school. (Silly enough I forgot to take a picture) thank you so much."  

"O loves it a Barnies and has a lovely group of friends. He loves exploring the garden all year round. He always comes out happy and smiling."  

"O is an only child so going to Barnies two days a week helps him interact with other children."

"Barnies have been absolutely wonderful with A. He happily runs in every morning without a backwards glance.  A absolutely loves all of the amazing sensory activities his key workers do with him and how his key worker designs games like 'posting' just for him, that he specifically enjoys.  They have also been great at helping develop his speech and vocabulary. A lovely part of Barnies is their focus on getting to know the family and things like the “focus child” weeks. They’re outstanding in every sense."

“When I had J I was determined I would not be sending him to nursery, but after hearing so many positive things I had to come and visit. I have not had one regret about sending J to you, he has loved every day and always comes out telling me about all the exciting things he has been up to. He has made so many friends, learnt so much but more importantly he has been so well looked after. I will always be grateful to you all for the terrific start you have given him and for your patience and hard work each day. We will both really miss you”

“Thank you for all the love and support you have given D and us over the last 4 years. Your guidance through a difficult settling in period, speech and language therapy and ENT surgery and beyond. You have all helped create a happy healthy D who is more than ready to start his next stage of life ‘Big Boy School’”

“Thank you so much for supporting, developing and nurturing A. I know it hasn’t been easy at times, however we are so grateful for the positive impact the team has made on her and truly preparing her for school”

“We can’t thank you enough for giving H the best start in his education. We will be forever grateful to all the hardworking staff at Barnies. H will miss you so much”

“Words cannot describe how grateful I am for everything you have done for us! In the time O attended Barnies, I don’t think anyone would have thought she would have progressed like she has! You will be missed very much & I promise that ‘if’ we have another child – we will be in touch again for childcare”

“Thank you for a lovely year at Barnies. I have enjoyed all of the fabulous things you organise for me to do. I have walls covered in my artwork now. I love cooking pizza and S & I even taught mummy and daddy how to sing ‘Twinkle, Twinkle Traffic Light’. Thanks again!”

“Thank you for every day that E spent with you! For all the things that he has learned like being fair and kind and waiting turns! For time you spend teaching, wiping tears, for knowing a hug is what he needs! For the tenderness you have shown, teaching E to be kind at heart! For being there when mummy can’t be! For making every day a special memory!

“A note to say how appreciative we are of the care and support you have given T during her time at Barnies. You have been instrumental in her growth and development and especially supportive during the emotional times we have had this year. We thank you for all the support and communication we have had during each step of the way on this the first part of her life’s journey”

“Thank you so much for caring for and helping to bring up our two son’s. They have flourished over their time with you, and it is obvious that you love them as well as just look after them. As parents we have also had great support when we had parenting dilemmas, and I feel we’ve been friends as well as clients. We are sad to leave, but new adventures await so goodbye and thank you all again”

“Thank you so much for the amazing way you have looked after and taught the girls. You really are the most amazing team and I will be forever grateful for the care and attention shown to F and E”

“Thank you so much for your care of H. It is clear he has felt safe and happy with you all since starting. You all touch children’s hearts in a positive and loving way, it is truly special”
