Hackenthorpe Hall is a fantastic place, they have an amazing outdoor area. The staff are friendly, professional, kind and patient. It really feels like you are leaving your little one with family. I would highly recommend this nursery.

Lovely place. My little boy has been going since about eight and a half months old and I can tell he already loves attending this nursery. The staff are so friendly, very informative and helpful when I drop off and pick him up. When he had his wobbles at the start they reassured me via the app. They are so understanding and don't only have time for my son but as a first time mum too. I know he is safe their too as their are very conscious about their security. I believe they have recently upgraded their system. So happy we chose this nursery.

Hackenthorpe Hall Nursery was recommended to us by a work colleague who's son has been to this nursery from 6 months until he started school. Sending our son to Hackenthorpe Hall Nursery was one of the best decisions we've ever made. The environment is absolutely lovely, safe and friendly for the children. The lovely staff do various activities to keep the children busy and to help them with their development in areas like math, language, social skills, listening, speaking, reading, etc. our son has developed a lot of social skills since he started at nursery. They have a lovely garden outside for little explorers. They provide healthy balanced meals and snacks. Menus are changed weekly so the children don't get bored with the food they eat. Communication is easy on Family app. The carers carry observations on your child's development and upload them onto Famly app for parents to review. They maintain a very close relationship with parents and keep us all up to date. The lovely staff here does a great job to bring up our children. Highly recommend!

Our daughter is going to miss coming to nursery, she has really enjoyed it. We never worried about leaving any of our children in your care, we knew they were in safe hands. Thank you to all the staff for making it enjoyable and fun.

Just a note to say thank you so much for developing our daughter into a confident and happy child who is excited and ready to start school. In the four years she has been in your care she has enjoyed every day and you have listened to all our feedback with a positive attitude. I have recommended Hackenthorpe Hall to many family and friends and they too are advocates of your fantastic nursery. The staff are amazing and we are very sad to leave – although she will still see them in holiday club and after school pick up. Once again many thanks.

As our daughter leaves Hackenthorpe Hall Nursery to start school I write to say thank you for the 4 years she has spent with you. The time has passed by so quickly and she has enjoyed every day. When first coming to look round, deciding which nursery she would attend, I was impressed by the family feel of the place and this has contributed to you all becoming very important people in our lives. From starting in Tadpoles at 10 months old, through Ducklings, Butterflies, Ladybirds, Dragonflies and Bumble Bees she has been so happy, Your staff have shown professionalism and dedication for the whole of the time. Nothing has been too much trouble for them and they have given full care and attention to our daughter. They are all very special people. We are very sad not to be coming to Hackenthorpe Hall for much longer and we will miss you all very much. Our daughter has developed to be a very responsible child, she is well prepared for school and this is due to the high level of support and encouragement she has received at Hackenthorpe Hall. We have every confidence in all your staff and would not hesitate in recommending Hackenthorpe Hall to others. Best wishes to you all, thank you all so much.

I just want to say a massive thank you to you all for looking after our daughter over these last 3 and a bit years. We sent in a card and some chocolates for the girls today, but it just didn’t seem to say thank you enough! We are really grateful to you all for all your hard work. The whole team have always made us feel welcome and she has made some great long lasting friends. The girls have always been great with her, from when she has been ill, to when she has had wobbly moments after being dropped off. Never once have we been scared to leave her and know she won’t be properly looked after. We have never had a problem with any part of the nursery and have felt that she has always had the best amount of care, support and education. Over the past few weeks she has said she doesn’t want to leave nursery to go to school, so to me, that says it all!! Thank you all again so much! I couldn’t recommend Hackenthorpe Hall highly enough! I think there will be some tears when we leave today as I was very emotional when I dropped her off this morning!

Thanks for everything you've done over the years. My son regularly refers to your staff as his best friends! We will miss you all.

We would like to express our grateful thanks and appreciation to your staff who have cared for our daughter since she was four months old.

Thank you so much for all you have done. You are all wonderful and will be missed. Once again a big thank you to you all.

Thank you for showing such love and care. She has learned so much and has been so happy. We will miss you.

Thank you for everything you have done and for the love and kindness you have shown. My daughter could not have been better cared for.

Thanks for the excellent care given to our daughter. Wishing you all the best for the future and see you again when I return to work.

To people who have a heart to care for children putting them first before themselves. Please accept my sincere appreciation.

My daughter is now a ‘big gal’ who is confident in herself, friendly and independent, all because of you. We will miss you lots.

Just to say a big thank you for making his time at nursery so happy and enjoyable.

Thanks for all your time and patience especially in the early days helping him to settle in and look forward to coming.

I would like to give you all a very big thank you for looking after my little boy. I know he has been a handful at times! 4 years has been a long time especially going from almost the beginning of his life, trusting you all to look after him. I am very grateful and will keep in touch.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Hackenthorpe Hall for an excellent job in making my children’s early years education fun and enjoyable.

My daughter has been at nursery since being 5 months old and has therefore experienced life in Tadpoles, Ducklings and Butterflies. She has had a wonderful time and I’m sure she will miss everyone.

We will be sad to say good buy to all the staff who have always been very helpful and friendly. They have encouraged our son’s inquisitive mind and given lots of help with his reading.

I first came to view Hackenthorpe Hall around March 2001 and I remember looking out of the bay window in Ducklings and thinking what a wonderful garden and free space the children had to play in, it was good to see all the children running around in a safe but open environment.
