We’re proud of our children and that their parents say such wonderful things about Stanhope House Day Nursery. Below are just a sample of what our parents have said about the nursery and its staff.
Stanhope is a wonderful nursery. Ruth and Sherri do a great job running the nursery and all the nursery nurses are really helpful, attentive and caring. They all work hard to support the children as individuals, taking each child’s needs and interests into account. It is very reassuring seeing how much the children like all the staff. During her time there, our daughter grew from being a baby to a confident, polite, happy and well-informed girl ready to start school. Stanhope made our job as parents so much easier by supporting, or at times taking the lead, in areas such as potty training, writing and learning to eat with a knife and fork. We all felt sad when our daughter left Stanhope to go to school. We are very pleased that our son has now started at Stanhope as we know they will help give him a great start to life.Lorna & Fred Muskett
Stanhope has given the absolute best start in life to our baby girl. She started at 7 months and although far from the nearest nursery, Stanhope came highly recommended. We visited several nurseries closer to our home but as soon as we set foot in Stanhope, there was absolutely no doubt in our mind that this was the place for our daughter, even if it meant a much longer daily walk. We never regretted our choice: Stanhope has exceptional standards of care and professionalism and is incredibly friendly and trustworthy. Our daughter had special diet requirement and we were impressed how Stanhope met every single one of our requests and went the extra mile to adapt to our child as an individual and how the team communicated with us whenever there was a doubt or a question. This was priceless for us. Our daughter key person was fabulous and inspired trust from the start. The whole team was also extremely friendly and trustworthy and it was obvious that they all knew and cared for our baby. The thorough daily reports gave us extra peace of mind although we only needed to see how happy she was to go to Stanhope every day to know it was the perfect place for her. We cannot recommend Stanhope highly enough as they have given our daughter the best start in her independent, social and learning life!Marion, Matthew & Mila
We looked at a number of nurseries before visiting Stanhope House but as soon as we walked through the door we realised this was the nursery for us. The welcoming and friendly feeling, the staff and facilities made us feel confident our son would be well looked after. Throughout his time at Stanhope he has steadily developed with their guiding hand always available. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. The breadth of activities and learning opportunities available is also great. He was always happy to go to nursery and sometimes did not want to leave! They took all the worry out of him being at nursery and made it much easier to be working parents.

From the very first time we looked around Stanhope we knew it was the right setting for our son, even though it wasn’t the closest to our house.
After a bad experience for nearly a year at a child minders, it was such a relief to take our son to Stanhope and not have negative comments on collection or during the working day.
Our son has a non ige dairy allergy and we have been pleased with how this was handled from the beginning. The menu was adapted so he could have the same as his nursery friends without dairy.
Our son has had a really lovely relationship with staff and in particular Tasha, she always was so kind to him even after he left the room she was in. She even brought him free from chocolate at Christmas time – it was very much appreciated.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff at Stanhope house Day nursery for all the loving care he has received over the last 2 years.
It has been unfortunate the way he has had to leave Stanhope with all that’s happened during these unprecedented time’s.
