We accept all childcare vouchers, but advise you that your first fees payable to the Nursery will need to be paid in full, as the receipt of vouchers is often inconsistent resulting in continual late payment.

At the time I was looking for a suitable nursery for my daughter to attend, I visited several nurseries in the area. When I walked into Rhymes the atmosphere was fabulous. The staff immediately engaged with my daughter and she with them. I hadn't seen this in the other nurseries.

During Freddie's time at Rhymes he has come on in leaps and bounds which is all down to the fantastic staffs care and attention to detail. Nothing is too much for them and they take the time to really learn about your child and their personal likes and dislikes. Freddie was shy and timid when he first started but with the help of the staff his confidence has grown and he now loves going off to play. I cannot thank them enough for making the transition back to being a work mom a smooth one for both me and Freddie.    


Staff will always be available to discuss any concerns you may have and we welcome parents visiting the nursery at any time during the day.
