Toad Hall Nursery Haslemere

Chestnut Ave, Haslemere GU27 2AT, UK – 01428 654117

Both of my boys attend Toad Hall and love it. When we were looking for a nursery for our boys it was very emotional for me. Like any parent you want the best for your babies and know they will be in good hands. There was something different about Toad Hall though and it had a incredibly welcoming, homely feel. We visited TH twice, on different days and at different times to ensure they weren't just putting on a good show...but everybody was really on the ball. It took my eldest son a little while to settle which I expected but it was made much easier for us knowing we were able to call up at any time to find out how he was getting on. We are now also able to log in to ParentZone which allows us to see photos and video footage of our boys doing activities throughout the day. TH have a focus on catering to their individual needs and they do lots of indoor and outdoor activities. I also have to comment on the support TH management team gave me whilst going through a tricky period after having my second baby. They seemed to genuinely care and were very accommodating. Since having a career break my husband and I debated changing nursery for convenience as TH is close to work but a 15-20 minute car journey from home. We very quickly decided against it as the boys are so very happy and settled and have made some beautiful friendships. I can wholeheartedly say that I trust all of the team at Toad Hall. Everyone is incredibly happy and bubbly. Our boys have a great time when they are there that its often hard to get them out at the end of the day. And when my eldest wakes up in the morning and says 'let's go to nursery' in excitement.....Well, I couldn't ask for any more. Thanks Everyone!

Our little one is so well looked after by the staff at Toad Hall. They do a great range of learning based activities with them as well as lots of fun and play! It's very reassuring to know that he has such a great time and is so well looked after.

Queen Ethelburga's Collegiate donated 50% of the production costs on behalf of the junior school, Chapter House, and our Forces community across campus - which is about 25% of our total student population.

St Ives School

Three Gates Ln, Haslemere GU27 2ES, UK – 01428 643734

A delightful School who nurture children both pastorally and academically. Turning out confident all round girls.

Our daughter started in nursery at St. Ives in 2012 and has never looked back. She's now in Year 2 and thriving. The school is set in beautiful surroundings, the Teachers are caring, passionate, nurturing and truly 'interested' in each and every child. I've heard the school referred to as "a hidden gem" and that is truly what it is....as a family we really do feel like we're part of something special. It's amazing to see the girls grow and develop into confident, energised young ladies developing their own identities and beliefs as they progress through the years ready for secondary school. Visit St Ives, meet some of the girls and I guarantee you'll be hooked!
