  • "I watch my two boys run in every morning and feel grateful that this fantastic team are caring for them. They have a great space for playing and activities that engage them throughout the day"

  • Both of my children go to Funky Owls Nursery; they are both extremely happy, and love the staff!
    My daughter (4) is learning to read and write, and loves the teaching.
    My son (2) is brilliantly looked after and constantly engaged with learning and games.
    On top of the usual stuff (and a huge outside space) there's gymnastics, teddy-tennis, "the football guy", soft play, and trips to the park.
    The chef cooks lovely food.
    Open 6:30am-7:30pm.
    Easy to park and commute.
    Highly recommend!
  • Management have been excellent; from initial queries by email, to visiting, to arranging registration and beyond. Manager responds to emails quickly and efficiently and is present in the setting too which I think is so important. She always been very friendly and helpful and able to answer all of our queries. She regularly arranges events for families which creates a feeling of community
  • "My 2 year old boy has been very happy at Funky Owls for the past 8 months. It's nice to see how excited he is to be dropped off in the morning and the staff are always really friendly, energetic and positive. I like the range of messy play and sporty activities like football and tennis he gets to enjoy each week and how much he's learnt and developed since he's been there. Keep up the good work!"

  • As a first time Mum, I was very anxious about how my little boy would settle at nursery. Luckily, the staff at Funky Owls were excellent and looked after, not only my little boys needs, but were also aware of how I was feeling too. They were so supportive and reassuring during his settle period and within a short period of time he was happily waving us off in the morning!
  • "My daughter has been at funky owls for more than 2 years and we couldn't be happier. From the baby room right through to the pre-school, she is always engaged and excited to be there. As parents we are so grateful to have found such a genuinely caring, enriching environment for her. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend."
