“Can we take this opportunity to thank you all for the care and attention that both A and Z have had at Muddy Boots. Z especially started with you as a shy, sensitive toddler but started school a confident and self-assured little boy who has thrived and loved his Reception year. A may have been with you for a shorter time but he loves his weekly session with you all and we’re sure he’ll settle brilliantly into his next setting as a result of his time spent with you.”
“My little boy absolutely loves his time at nursery and we have been delighted with the progress he has made since joining the Muddy Boots family. There is such a warm and welcoming environment with all the staff and children. He has been looked after as an individual character, with his personal needs being cared for sensitively, whilst also enjoying well planned activities, lively play and creative time with all his nursery friends. Muddy Boots Nursery is a fun and friendly place to be!”

The care that is given to our son is outstanding. His learning is very individual and incorporates his interest at any one particular time. The staff are very knowledgeable and always very helpful. I would have no hesitation in recommending Muddy Boots Nursery to anyone.
We love Muddy Boots! From our very first visit all the staff have been very helpful, friendly and it is clear to see that they love their job and are so committed to each individual child and their development. We love that the kids are involved in the decision making on what they shall do and can just be kids. We’d recommend Muddy Boots to anyone, our daughter is very happy there and so are we.
My son had been going to Muddy Boots for a couple of months and he has fitted in so well, mainly due to the staff. Without sounding cheesy it really has the feel of it being a home from home. He always has lots of fun and really has come on leaps and bounds in his development since joining. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
Muddy Boots has a very relaxed yet focussed atmosphere. The staff are very supportive and approachable to children and parents. You feel able to discuss any issues your child may have as well as any preferences you would prefer the staff to facilitate. My daughter settled very quickly and she already has very settled and positive routine she carries out each week.
Friendly staff, a safe environment and a wealth of resources have made this nursery the perfect choice for our daughter. She is very happy there and her development has progressed rapidly since she started there. We are particularly impressed by the nursery’s reporting procedures and look forward to reading her learning journal. We are always told what she has been doing during the day and it is obvious that the staff make every effort to get to know the children really well. This shows by how happy our little girl is when we take her in on a morning. We love that the children are encouraged to be outside as much as possible!
Really happy with Muddy Boots. My lad always so excited to go every day. Staff always very helpful and friendly and comes home with lots of things he has done, like cooking and making things. He really loves the staff there and talks about them all the time at home. Cant recommend enough.
We love Muddy Boots- it has a wonderful, informal and happy atmosphere. The staff are so helpful and my son loves every minute of his time there. No fussing, no bureaucracy, happy kids and staff having fun. I would recommend this nursery to anyone who wants tired but happy kids at the end of the day, who want their kids to have some exercise and fresh air and don’t mind them coming home muddy. We also love the fact that the staff are so happy and clearly enjoy their jobs, are interested in the kids and their development and are motivated and enthused by their work.
