My children have been at Whipper-snappers for 4 years now and the girls that care for them feel like extended family to us. The children love them and everyone is so approachable – you can tell they really care for the children and the independence and confidence they bring out in them is amazing. I wouldn’t send them anywhere else.

It’s so comforting to leave Henry at nursery when he’s smiling at me and waving me off. Henry has such a great time with his friends and the staff at nursery and it’s definitely helping his development in all areas. For this and many other reasons, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Whipper-snappers.

After all my concerns and stresses when it came to finding child-care, I feel certain that I made the right choice, my daughter loves coming to nursery everyday. You’ve got a fantastic team. Thank you very much for making my return to work an enjoyable experience.

Louise (Baby barn parent)

My children are so happy, they come home full of lovely stories about their daily adventures and activities, it is so reassuring for us to see our children thriving in this environment. Whipper-snappers are very accommodating when work plans change – the early and late drop offs means I can juggle other commitments, and there has never been a problem when I have requested extras days.’

Caroline (Toddler and Big barn parent)

What an outstanding nursery. I had total confidence from the start leaving my children at Whipper-snappers. In a lovely environment with excellent caring staff, we will miss you all.

Michelle (Toddler Barn and Kids Club parent)

We are very happy with our daughters development throughout her time at nursery, she is so very happy. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The standards are always of a high standard. You have all provided her with a stable and fun environment, that, at all times, was the only consistent feature in her life after being diagnosed with a life long illness only 6 months ago, and for that I am incredibly grateful. I cannot thank you enough for all your support and I will continue to recommend your excellent service and wish you all well for the future.

My husband & I are so impressed with Whipper-snappers. Our little girl has been going there since she has been 8 months old and she is so happy there. She partakes in so many different activities and always comes home smiling. We are so pleased we took the time to find this brilliant nursery!!

Jacqueline (Baby barn parent)

Situated on a farm overlooking picturesque countryside, Whipper-snappers goes one step beyond a normal nursery, encouraging children to learn and grow in a safe and secure environment.

Claire (Toddler barn and Pre-school parent)

It didn’t take long for us to make a decision which nursery was right for us. Once we saw the wonderful rooms, the great outside space and the friendly staff our mind was made up and 5 years later, we still feel the same. Both our children have thrived and loved every moment at Whipper-snappers.

Layla (Kids Club and Pre-school parent)

Our son only joined at the pre-school level when he was coming up for 3 years, but he took to it straight away and has loved evey day he has spent there.

Joanne (Pre-school parent)

Collecting Hollie and Ben from Whipper-snappers is always a pleasure, to see them running around the play areas having so much fun they don’t realise I’m there is a lovely sight and totally reassuring that they are happy to spend time with you.

Nick (Kids Club and Pre-school parent)

Staff at Whipper-snappers always have time to listen to you and help when they can. Very friendly and excellent care. My daughter’s brother will be starting soon to join in the fun and she can’t wait to show him round.

Anna (Pre-school parent)

As two working parents I don’t know how we’d have managed school picks up without Whipper-snappers. Discovering Kids Club would pick up from the school playground was a relief!

Julie (Kids Club parent)

Both our son and daughter have been going to Whipper-snappers since they were 11 months old. They love going to nursery and more often than not, it’s a struggle to get them to come home.


They both enjoy being outside and Whipper-snappers have several great outdoor space’s for them to explore and have fun in. Our son, who is just about to leave pre-school, particularly liked his time at Forest School where he was able to climb trees, explore and learn about nature.


We have always been confident that our children are well looked after by friendly and capable staff and I’ll be sad when our eldest leaves for big school
