Testimonials

My daughter has been at Circus for 3 years now, having started just after turning one. She’s now about to leave Preschool for “big school”. She has loved Circus and really enjoys her time there. She’s made some good friends and has had brilliant carers in each room she’s been in. The staff are all lovely and take the time to get to know all the kids. They do a great range of activities and make the most of the large outside space. I love that they go outside every day. The food is great, the kids enjoy it and eat loads. Although it is quite a large nursery it is very friendly and caring. We are very pleased we chose Circus and happy that my son will be continuing there for a while too. Thank you everyone!

“Our son Oscar has been at Circus for just over 2 years, and absolutely loved every minute. From the very first moment we looked round we knew from the warmth of all the staff that it was the perfect place for us. It’s such a big decision, and we felt so torn about having to use a nursery to care for our child but the staff, and environment at Circus really has been exceptional. Our son, Oscar, has made some wonderful friends and had brilliant experiences – most of which he wouldn’t have got at home.

We’ve moved away which is the only reason Oscar isn’t continuing his Circus journey, and it says a lot that it really was the toughest part of our move – we’re yet to find another nursery that lives up to the experience we’ve had with Circus! Very big shoes to fill!

Thank you to all of the team, you’re all amazing!”

Our daughter joined Circus from another setting when she was two years old. The staff were wonderful throughout her journey to school. I often looked forward to our second child going to Circus, I knew he would have a fantastic time and be loved and nurtured there. Alas, our circumstances changed and due to location and time constraints, our boy attends a different setting in town. I was disappointed but needs must. If I’d known that our daughter’s last day at Circus would be our last day at Circus too, I would have cried more than I did. Perhaps it sounds silly but when somewhere is so intrinsic and brilliant, you can’t help it. We have fond memories of the staff and the other children and will always think of Circus when we look back at our girls early years. Thank you.

My husband, daughter and I had a wonderful viewing of your fabulous nursery last week on Monday 4th June, the facilities are incredible and the staff were so friendly and welcoming. We are both very excited to have found such a lovely nursery and feel confident our daughter will be very happy in your care. We would like to continue and register with you starting September 2018, she will be looking forward to joining the baby suite.

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for everyone’s help in settling my daughter into daycare. It has made me fully realise that we chose the right place for her and I really appreciate how professional, friendly and smiley everyone is when we arrive each morning. She may be a little stubborn about going in to nursery but she talks non-stop about everyone when we get home and absolutely lights up, so I know she is having a fabulous time with you guys. I’ve also seen a huge leap in her speech and listening since starting at Circus.

The ladies who care for her are brilliant and I’m so happy knowing that she gets to spend her days with them.

So today was my daughters last day on pre school, what a truly amazing nursery! My little girl started her Circus journey at 9 months old and has worked her way through the setting to pre school. I can not thank the staff enough for what they have done for her, each and everyone of you are wonderful and I feel blessed that such kind warm hearted staff have looked after her… you have made her nursery experience the best ever and as one amazing chapter ends, a new one will begin for her.

I just wanted to write and say thank you. My daughter has been with you for roughly 4 months now and she loves it.

I was nervous about having our daughter in nursery as it’s for socialising purposes rather than because I’m at work but felt it was important for her development. I’be never even had a babysitter before because I’d rather her be with me and didn’t want to leave her so nursery was a big deal. The staff that look after and care for her are just fantastic, nothing is too much trouble. My daughter loves it at nursery and her spoken word is quickly improving I’m sure as a result. She’s making friends which is important and seems to love the team who look after her. Nothing is too much trouble and they are happy to listen to me when I drop off and pick her up which I find hugely beneficial (I’m a bit of a control freak :)). So thank you so much. I’m so pleased we chose you as a nursery.

Being a new mother in a new home in a new town, ensuring my two-year old son Quinn felt safe and settled at his first nursery was vitally important. I was finding my way and so would he be…

I felt anxious and unsure about leaving him, but all worries melted away once I met founder, Sue and a handful of the most loving girls who would be taking care of him.

From his very first day, he’s been thrilled to be in Clowns then Jugglers and now pre-school. He has blossomed into a confident, comfortable, humorous and deeply contented little boy. Curious to know more about the world and the people around him and always up for a cuddle!

I know that I owe much of the grounded sense of security that he enjoys to the heart-felt care he has received from his Circus Family.

Thank you with all my heart.

I started my life at Circus Day Nursery since I was 1yr old. I am now 14 and believe this was one of the best experiences of my life. I remember what it used to be like but I would like to see it now and all the new staff etc. Mel, Caroline, Lance and Ben were the staff I remember.

I just wanted to write to say thank you so much to my son’s key worker for the lovely letter and photos she sent home with my son on Wednesday. It really made my day to see how much fun he’d been having! I’m so pleased that he seems to be getting settled, and really appreciate her support and care for him.

Great nursery, I have visited a few times to meet Sue and the team when reviewing work for Ask Baby Cotswold. Keep up the great work.

We were recently guests at a wedding, in Cheltenham, where we were lucky enough to be able to make use of child-care provided by Circus Day Nursery staff. The two nursery carers had filled a room with toys carefully selected based on the children’s ages and the gender ratio. It was the first wedding that we had taken our boys, Oscar aged five and Felix who is three, and were slightly apprehensive, but we needn’t have worried. They loved playing with the train set and cranes whilst we were enjoying the speeches. Everyone was happy! They stayed up later than usual but as the tiredness kicked in they were able to watch the Lego Movie on the iPad. Oscar made some new friends too! Thank you for helping to make them feel at ease and looking after them so well.

Staff from the Circus Day Nursery did a great job looking after children during our daughter’s wedding reception. The children were completely absorbed in their activities, and so their parents could relax and enjoy the speeches and cabaret. Thank you!

My little girl attended Circus for nearly four years. Not only was Circus an amazing support to me but they also offered my daughter a secure environment where she could grow, have fun and learn. She was always surrounded by positive people and happy children which has made her sociable and confident. What a great start!

As an Early Years practitioner and the senior early year’s consultant for Classpeople I have had the opportunity to visit and work closely with Circus Day Nursery. Having completed an Early Childhood Studies Degree alongside the manager Vikki, I already had a clear understanding of her professionalism and dedication to Early Years.

My son Hugh has attended circus nursery since he was 5 months old and absolutely loves every aspect of his care. The girls are all lovely and caring. Circus has a lot to offer for childrens development. I highly recommend it as a setting. I wish he could go there for ever.

I know that Monty and Effie love their time at Circus by the smile across their face everyday when they’re getting into the car to go. Using Circus for four years now with two children we have experienced most floors and a lot of carers throughout our time. I can honestly say that I’m sure that we couldn’t have found a better, happier and friendlier setting for the two little people we love most. From the very first day it felt like a ‘home from home’ with the girls forming great relationships with the children and the parents. I know that they are both in a safe environment within Circus but most importantly…. they are having fun. When I drop Effie off in the mornings, I feel like I’m dropping her off with extended family who love her and enjoy being with her. I have two happy, outgoing and well rounded children and I’m sure that this has been encouraged and developed by Circus. I just wished they opened a junior school so they wouldn’t have to leave at 4!

After looking at a number of nurseries, the staff at circus were the only ones that took the time to actually talk to Megan and play with her rather than talking to us! We felt comfortable with them straight away. Megan has now been there a year and has developed leaps and bounds under the loving and watchful eye of the girls on Clowns and now Jugglers. They look after the kids as if they were their own and we couldn’t have chosen a better place for her!
