" Children are extremely happy and enjoy their time at the Nursery." - Ofsted
The Wendy House Day Nurseries are owned and run by Matt Darby and Jacquie Ellison. Since opening their first Nursery in 2003 they quickly established a reputation for having extremely high standards and believe that caring for children in smaller groups offers a more individual and personal level of care. They both completely understand that they are asking parents to leave the most precious person in their world in their care and, as such, take that responsibility with the seriousness it deserves.
The Wendy House is not part of a large chain of Nurseries, governed by a distant head office. Both Matt and Jacquie are on-site every day ensuring they can oversee the care of the children, offer support to their team of staff and have regular contact with parents to get feedback from them, which is vital in maintaining standards.
They are both passionate about their Nurseries and their belief that children in Nursery settings can, and should, receive personal and top quality care. "Our success is based very much on our philosophy of providing bespoke individual care and a very personal service. Our Nurseries are not large children's centres housing 100+ children, but concentrate on providing top-quality care in smaller numbers, with very much a family feel".
