We moved to the area four months ago and are so pleased we chose Loveders. It's such a lovely place and the activities and resources are brilliant. Our little girl comes home saying how much fun she's had each day. Staff are dedicated, creating a warm, nurturing environment for the children and come up with imaginative ideas for learning and play each day. They are also really flexible and nothing seems too much trouble. They understand children as individuals and go the extra mile to meet the needs of every child. We couldn't recommend them more!
