“Absolutely love this nursery! My daughter has been going for 8 months now and she loves it! Never had any problems, the staff are great with her and always keep me up to date and respond to any messages I have promptly. I get lovely updates and they do lots of different activities to celebrate all occasions. She often comes home with drawings she’s done and gifts at occasions like Valentine’s Day etc. It’s lovely. The nursery itself is so clean, well looked after and doesn’t smell like other nurseries did that we visited before choosing Kidz r us. It’s smells clean and fresh. Highly recommend.” (Sally Richardson – 5 star Google review)

“Kidzrus – The Lodge is an absolutely wonderful nursery, and the staff are utmost friendly, caring and responsible. My child has been going here for more than a year now, and he looks forward to spending time, make new friends and learn new things every day. The rooms are clean, well decorated and set for the appropriate age along with an excellent outside play area.”

“They constantly update me regarding my child’s day, including his food and snacks, nap time, activities he enjoyed during different sessions etc. which is a big plus. Each child is assigned a key person who work in close partnership with parents in monitoring and nurturing the child’s skills and mental health. I would like to especially mention Kelly, my son’s key person who is a delight to talk to, and has really helped me in shaping various aspects of my son’s development including potty training, speech and emotion contol.”

“I am glad to be able to spend my day with the comfort of knowing that my child is in safe hands, and I greatly recommend the nursery to anyone who is looking for a safe and friendly place for their child.” (Vishallini AV – 5 star Google review)

“Great nursery brilliant staff! Both my daughters have attended the lodge my youngest is still there and receiving the same brilliant care that my oldest got! I can’t rate the nursery highly enough. The staff are great with the children and made me feel very at ease about leaving my 10month old daughter. Their development has been amazing and I love being updated with photos of all the activities they do and all the occasions they celebrate.” (Catharine Young – 5 star Google review)

“I have sent both my children here after being recommended by both of my friends who had previously had their children attend. I knew as soon as I visited the nursery this was the one for them. Beautiful bright premises and the staff are all really friendly and great with the children. Mine have attended both from being babies and always come home with a smile on their face.”  (Samantha Prady – 5 star Google review)

“I would absolutely recommend Kidzrus nursery to any parent! Our daughter (almost 4) has been going there since 6 months old. She has always been happy to go from the start, which made the transition so much easier. The ladies are great at communicating with us on her development and any issues. Even though we cannot no longer go inside to have a chat due to the pandemic, Kidzrus team has been using their Famly App so that we can still send any questions and get regular posts with pictures about what activities she gets up to. Their health and safety levels were already excellent, but it was even more reassuring at the start of the pandemic to see that the team has put in place cleaning measures even more thorough. I am very grateful for all their professionalism and their kind and constant support.”  (Marie Bakhtlari – 5 Star Google review)

“Kidzrus The Lodge is wonderful and we would highly recommend. My son has been going since he was just over 1 year old (now in pre-school) and loves it! The staff are great – so attentive and continually keep us updated on his progress and are so prompt to respond to any messages. We receive lovely updates and they do so many various activities which have really nurtured his development and the care is second to none. The nursery itself is very professional, clean and has lovely settings. The nursery make such a great effort to engage the children in celebrating occasions such as Chinese new year too. I never have to worry about our little one whilst at nursery and he practically runs in every morning without a goodbye at times as he is so excited to go! So happy with chose Kidrus The Lodge.” (Kirsty King – 5 star Google review)

“We love Kidzrus The Lodge! We looked at 13 different nursery’s before choosing the lodge, I knew as soon as we arrived it would be the right place to send our daughter. She started nursery as soon as my 9 months maternity leave was up but being born 11 weeks early meant she was still really tiny. The whole team were so lovely but Karen in the baby room was absolutely amazing, she was so attentive and caring towards our daughter but she also supported me through that tough transition too. Our daughter has developed so much since starting nursery and continues to do so with each room she moves through. Our daughter has always been supported with her development from her physio home work to her speech and language homework she gets from her therapist now, the staff create play plans to make sure they are working with us and helping her achieve her milestones. As our daughter is deaf and wears a hearing aid I was worried about her starting nursery and how this would be handled but the team at the lodge have been amazing! Sarah her tots key person learned sign language over lockdown and Kayla her toddler key person works on signs with her during daily activities as well as working to develop her speech, all her key persons have looked after her and her aid and makes sure she wears it throughout the day I really couldn’t have asked for anymore. The food is amazing! All freshly cooked and a wide variety! I’m always jealous of the food my daughter gets! It’s clear to see how much she loves her days at nursery and all the fun activities she gets to do, the lodge is an Absolutely Fantastic nursery!” (Amanda Wilcox – 5 star Google review)

“We chose the Lodge over the other nurseries we viewed in the area as it looked so new/ colourful and fresh. The staff were so welcoming and paid my little one so much attention when looking around. She made herself at home straight away. My little girl has been there for 3 months now in the baby room. I cant believe how much she has come on. She’s learning new things each week. The staff are fantastic, always keeping us updated on the famly app with photos and observations. She now gets excited when we arrive. She’s always coming home with bits she’s been making / baking. I couldn’t ask for a better nursery. Highly recommend.”  (Rachael Hart – 5 star Google review)

“Absolutely love this nursery have been coming since my older son was a baby and wouldn’t go any where else nursery is immaculate they do some amazing things with the kids and the staff are the nicest people especially Nicola who runs the nursery – she has a heart of gold !!” (Emma Whittingham – 5 star Google review)

“We are very happy with this nursery. Our child has been attending the Lodge for over 3 years now. We have never had any problems or concerns regarding our child well-being and safety. We appreciate all the work and effort the nursery provides towards meeting our child’s special needs, including close cooperation with specialists and therapists.  A special mention to Kelly S., our daughters key person, who is not only very warm, caring and committed to our child but also brilliant at providing feedback and open to suggestions. The nursery uses a mobile app to communicate with parents and provide updates about children daily activities which is very convenient and useful.”  (Marlo W – 5 star Google review)

“The first and only nursery my son will ever go to. The staff don’t only just support my son but they support my family and I will forever be grateful. As a single mother with two young sons Nicola and the staff at the lodge go above and beyond to help us whether it be in the nursery setting or delivering us food parcels at home.”

“Kidzrus has an OUTSTANDING Ofsted report and you will go far to find another nursery that is anywhere near the same! It’s sad to see some people trying to tarnish this nurseries reputation but there are always two sides to every story and I would not send my son here if I had any doubts that there was any truth in some of these reviews. The facts speak volumes!”

“Thank you so much for taking care of William over the last 3 years and giving him the best possible start that any parent could ask for. William is sad to leave all of you behind but is very excited about starting his new adventure. Hopefully we will be seeing you all again soon. Love Mum, Dad & William.”  (August 2020)

“For all you patience day to day,

For every tear you wipe away,

For little hands you gently hold,

And all the stories you have told,

For silly songs and quiet times,

For peaceful naps & nursery rhymes,

For teaching William how to share,

How to be kind and how to be fair,

For every shoe that you have tied,

And thoughtful words that instil pride,

For all the sweet things that you do,

To teach children all year through,

For being there in place of us,

Were both grateful.

And we’ll always be”  (August 2020)
