Nursery and breakfast club to meet your needs!

I’m very satisfied with this Nursery, my youngest attends the baby Catterpillar room and my eldest goes to the breakfast club. They are super helpful and would accommodate to your needs. They have been extremely supportive with us during this difficult times, their staff looks always very happy and they’re lovely, fun and caring. It feels safe when we drop our Children off with all the measures they have put in place.

Excellent nursery

My oldest has been with Caterpillar since he was 14 months old and has now started school, which was heartbreaking as it’s the end of an era as a mum and it was so sad to leave his lovely nursery years behind him. The staff are all wonderful, great rooms and outdoor space, and the food is always excellent.

My youngest is there now and she has a brilliant time there. Thank you to Caterpillar for providing such a wonderful service.

Outstanding Nursery

As soon as we visited this nursery we knew it was the one for us and we visited a lot! They offer such a warm and caring environment which you feel as soon as you step through the front door. Being smaller and more intimate than some other settings every member of staff not only knows every child but every parent by name which is so reassuring. We have started both our daughters in their baby room and we loved watching them flourish and develop as they move from room to room with the help and care of the staff. I couldn't not mention the food either, home-cooked nutritious meals served everyday! We would recommend Caterpillar to anyone and know our daughters will have lovely memories of their time there for years to come.

Exceptional nursery

Amazing nursery which has supported and help our son grow for four years. He joined as the youngest (at 3 months) and is now the oldest! He loves every second of his time at Caterpillars, which is evidenced by his delight at being there and the relationship he has with the staff. The staff are fantastic - caring, patient and kind and the management team is approachable and responsive. Fiona stands out as being an excellent leader. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Caterpillars to anyone.

Amazing Nursery!

The best nursery for my children, I would recommend Caterpillars to anyone who is looking for childcare. Having looked around others, I hadn't felt the comfort I did when attending caterpillars. The staff are all happy and friendly, always smiling faces from staff and children. The planning and observations done for the children are just brilliant and its lovely being on the app so we can share what we do from home. The food is amazing & my children try so much more at nursery then they do at home - constantly trying different things. The overall experience with the activities and resources available to children and the wonderful outdoor area is just brilliant for children of all ages. Having 2 children in different age groups I have got to experience both and can say they are both extremely happy and settled here! Can't thank Caterpillars enough for being such a great support to helping my children develop and grow. Fantastic care x
