Ofsted - January 2008

“Children are very happy, contented and secure throughout the nursery. They confidently access the stimulating and challenging range of activities and are forming secure relationships with staff and with other children.”

Ofsted - May 2011:

"All staff are able to adapt their practice to not only reach out to the children and their needs but to meet".

From Parents:

“I have my second child at Samuels and have always been so grateful for the way the staff really care about the children. By far the most outstanding childcare provider I have worked with.”

The staff are dedicated to the children at Samuels and it shows ... The topic sheets are brilliant as they keep us informed of what he is learning at nursery and let us join in at home.”

“Samuels is a positive environment for the children. The variety of types of play is great and the space is excellent. The staff are always friendly and approachable. I admire the enthusiasm of everybody.”

“The love and support you have all shown my slightly shy and less confident little girl has helped her grow and develop into a confident individual ... This, I feel illustrates how Samuels provides for all children’s needs and each child is treated as an individual. We will all miss you!”
