After visiting quite a few local nursery's for my 2 year old, Parkside felt the best choice for us! Chloe who met my little girl at the show around made her feel so at ease and even cried when leaving! Her first day at nursery she loved it! I got updates with pictures, videos and text, the nursery is very welcoming and so are the staff we have met! My little girl didn't notice I had even gone and when I came to pick her up she came out beaming with  smiles and laughing! A big part of why I chose Parkside is how Chloe interacted with my daughter! Thank you so much! I feel confident at leaving my child knowing she will be looked after so well!                          - Charlotte


'Our daughter loves her time at Parkside and gets very excited to go. She is always very happy to see all the staff and we love to see the photos and updates we are sent showing the activities and fun she has while there.'                                                                             - Lindsey


Both my children have/are attending Parkside, I would highly recommend it to any parent/carer! The staff are friendly, caring and supportive. The setting is personalised and need focused, and the children are very well occupied with fun and educational activities. My son was very well prepared to start Primary School after attending Parkside.                   -Emma


Hadleigh parkside was fantastic for my daughter after being to a couple of previous settings as we move around alot as a family my daughter was quite unsettled with change. Parkside were fabulous with her they put both her and myself at ease, she absolutely flourished there and no more tears at drop off. They gave her all the confidence and tools she needed ready for school, when she left and she could even read!!!! I can't recommend Hadleigh Parkside enough’. - Rachael

‘Thank you very much for welcoming Libby and although she wasn’t with you long, she really enjoyed her time. Thank you for all the bits during lockdown and the bits to prepare for school’. – Jeff and Caroline


‘As the manager here at Parkside I can also share with you my first hand experience of the setting as a parent too. My daughter who is now 12 attended the setting from the age of 2.5yrs until she started school at 4. She really benefited from remaining at the setting until reception age as she gained so much confidence, resilience and readiness for school.

My other daughter has this year started school and she has surprised me the most, as a shy little girl with new people I never imagined how she would just love school and be a confident young lady going off in these strange times into school. She remained at pre-school when we were able to return to larger numbers during Covid and this time gave her so much knowledge of how school life would be, getting her ready and encouraging her independence in all areas of learning but also in her key skills, dressing, using a knife and folk etc. I was on maternity leave for the last 9 months and I can honestly say that my daughter has loved her experience at Parkside, although she does think she was the boss in my absence, she felt so safe and secure here and has learnt so much. Parkside has been a wonderful place for her to learn all that she now knows’.  – Megan Josselyn

‘My daughter Tallulah went to Parkside before starting St Mary's this September. She only turned 4 at the end if August so I was worried about her going off to school but she is doing so well.  I strongly believe this is partly down to Parkside and all the things she learnt whilst there. She thoroughly enjoyed Parkside and all of the staff were lovely. I would not hesitate in sending my child there and am in fact sending my youngest in January’. - Kerry
