What Our Parents Say?

Very impressed with the quality…

I have been very impressed with the quality of teaching and care that my children have received at Rydal. Rydal has a very welcoming atmosphere and my children love the time they spend at nursery. They have developed fantastic relationships with all the staff, who are always friendly, enthusiastic and attentive, and work to a very high standard. My children have always been very well looked after and cared for at Rydal. There are always lots of interesting activities planned which fully engage the children in their learning. Rydal has provided the very best early education for my children and has given them an excellent start in life.

Management team are highly competent…

Both my son and daughter have been to Rydal and they have very fond memories of their time there. The care of the staff is great - they have gone the extra mile especially in the extra care for my daughter (who suffers with eczema). The management team are highly competent, very approachable and always very accommodating. The range of activities on offer are varied, fun, challenging for little ones and often give me inspiration for things to do at home. For me, the best advertisement for Rydal is seeing the collective happiness of all the children.

Fantastic and supportive environment…

Rydal is been a fantastic place for our daughter. We relocated from overseas and our daughter had many new things to get used to - the weather, the food, the lack of sunlight!. Rydal provided a fantastic and supportive environment for her and has been a wonderful introduction to the UK. The staff have been very vigilant and responsive to her needs and she has flourished at Rydal, enjoying her environment, making friends and learning to get the most out of life. She is now getting ready for school and is looking forward to it and all it entails. I have no doubt that she is so confident and happy about going to school, in large part due to the vigilant, kind and nurturing environment that Rydal provides. And they even got her eating curry!

Caring, compassionate and knowledgeable staff…

Emma Binding leads an outstanding team of caring, compassionate and knowledgeable staff who have nurtured and encouraged our sons to become confident, considerate and happy little boys. The nursery and preschool environments are well equipped, inventive and fun and they are forever striving to develop and improve what's on offer. We have been delighted by the service and support that the team have given us and our children.

Best possible care and educational opportunities…

I have used Rydal day nursery for day care for both my daughters and have been extremely happy with care and provision they have provided for both of them. The second is now leaving to start school in September. Both my daughters have been very happy there and be given the best social, personal and educational opportunities they could have received in developing them as individuals and preparing them for school. I believe Rydal day nursery to be a welcoming and stimulating environment for any child. I believe my children have have received the best possible care and educational opportunities. Rydal provides fun and stimulating activities which my current daughter at Rydal will come home and talk about. She thoroughly enjoys the outings and visits she has been involved in. I like the way that the children's achievements are displayed and celebrated so that parents can feel involved in their child's learning. Communication is very good and we are always kept up to date with any news, events or policies. The children's progress meetings and sharing of learning diaries are also a clear way for me to see the progress my daughter is making and how her individual needs are being met. My daughters key work worker did an excellent job at helping her settle in at Rydal so that she felt happy and safe whilst she was there. The flexibility and organisation of the settling in sessions were definitely a contributing factor in making this transition for my daughter as smooth as possible. I think very highly of Rydal Day Care nursery and feel that the experiences my daughters have received there have prepared them for the journey ahead of them at school.

Delighted with the quality of care…

I have been delighted with the quality of care my son has received over the last 18 months. In a loving and nurturing environment, you have helped him grow and mature so that he is ready for school. The lengths Rydal go to, to help children engage in learning, is fantastic. He has loved his visits to the beach, talks from different parents on their exciting jobs and not forgetting Bertie the dog whom he adores.

They all genuinely love their jobs…

The team at Rydal are amazing. You can tell they all genuinely love their jobs. Emma is a brilliant manager, she does so much to make sure Rydal is a great place to send your child. They are great at tailoring their prospectus to each individual child. From day 1 when my son had no experience of being away from me he loved going there. He talks about Rydal and the staff all the time. They are really good with him as he is shy while he's there but he loves the staff and tells me all about his day. Rydal has such a wide range of visitors to the nursery which are massively varied and they are all fun for the children whilst still being informative and great learning experiences. The building is lovely and has undergone some major renovations which only enhance the nursery setting. I would not send my son anywhere else. I recommend Rydal to everyone. They have fun but they are constantly teaching the children in a way where they are nurtured and encouraged without it felling pressured. My son loves the "homework" which are maths games that really help with number skills. A brilliant place for children.

All are valued and made to feel special…

What I love about Rydal is that they just 'get it.' Completely child led, learning goes off on many different tangents and who only knows where they might end up!! They LISTEN and HEAR what the children say and all are valued and made to feel special. My first and second daughter have been to Rydal (third due to start next year!) - and for all of them the staff have gotten to know their little habits and ways and nurtured, encouraged, and developed their characters. Rydal use the local environment in their learning, going to the beach and green spaces, playing in the sunshine and dancing in the rain! They also have many visitors - reptiles, local people - police dogs, guide dogs - all of which the children talk about years later. But Rydal also get it with mummy (and daddy) - when its been a bad morning, if things have gone a bit wrong, if there are tears at drop off - I've had many a cuddle (and cry) myself - and Rydal staff make you feel that's fine too.

From the visiting reptiles to the Police Dogs…

Everything about our experience with Rydal nursery is simply outstanding. The staff work really hard with both children and parents providing fantastic care and support and building relationships - always so very welcoming and make time to talk though anything if needed - nothing is ever too much trouble. As a parent we have experienced great support from Emma and the team to help with specific areas of development. There is a really good variety of learning and different activities always interactive and educational, from the visiting reptiles to the Police Dogs. It's feels like every week is very different! The overall progress that Harrison has made and what he has learnt is amazing.
