A couple of months ago I had a viewing and tour of The Old School House Day Nursery in Hartford for my 9 month old son.... The Nursery itself is in a perfect location and the staff are very warm, friendly, approachable and accommodating, which appears to create a good environment for the children. Unfortunately, however I am not going to be placing my son with this nursery and have decided to place him with Little Frogs Day Nursery and Pre-School. This is due to the fact that during my visit to The Old School House Day Nursery, I noticed a familiar face, a member of staff who I know of as she lives local to myself in Castle. This member of staff has on a number of occasions whilst on my way back from my local mini Tesco passed me whilst smoking a joint and stinking of weed. This factor completely changed my views on the nursery as I would expect them to have a better outlook on this kind of behavior as I am sure they must have a Drugs and Alcohol Policy including random drug testing in place in order to keep children safe. For the above reason I am not leaving my child in the care of someone who is irresponsible and would advise others to not do the same.read more

    “My daughter who is now 7 attended Paintpots Hartford from the age of 6 months. What I loved about the nursery that no other nursery had that I visited, was its instant warmth. You want to know your children are happy and safe, and be assured the staff are amazing and just look at how happy the children are. My 4 year old now attends the nursery and absolutely loves, and the fact that many of the staff are still there after 7 years speaks volumes. Thank you!”

    “We are very happy with the nursery, loved it as soon as we were shown round. My daughter thrives in each room she goes in and she is so happy there which make my decision to be a working Mum a lot easier. I’ll be putting my next babies name down as soon as they are born. The food always smells lovely when drop her off and she always eats everything. She always has so much to tell me about what shes been doing in the day. All the staff are lovely, friendly and helpful.”

    “My son has been here since he was 6 months old he is now nearly 4. I would have no hesitation in recommending Hartford Old School house to anyone, the warm friendly atmosphere and very happy children are a credit to all the staff! He always comes home full of tales of the day and has gained such confidence in his time here. Never easy as a Mummy to go back to work, but this has been made so much better with the help of all the wonderful staff and excellent Nursery thankyou”

    “Henry started in the baby room with Fiona from 6 months old and stayed up until he left Pre school to started School. He was very well cared for from day one and as he was there full time this was very important to us as parents. My daughter is also now in the baby room with Fiona and Amy and again we are extremely please with the care she gets. The standards at the nursery are very high across the board, from care and education through to the meals that the children eat and standards of cleanliness. Low turnover of staff means that Henry saw the same faces every day so really a home from home. The daily activities are extremely well planned and the children have fun but also learn a great deal. This nursery comes highly recommended.”

    “There was no contest in choosing the nursery/preschool for our daughter. Paintpots Hartford Old School felt right from the minute we walked through the door. Mo shown us around each of the rooms, ranging from the baby room, through to preschool and explained how it was run, as well as detailing the EYFS. The staff are fantastic and are always willing to discuss your child’s progress or ways to meet their needs. We have never doubted our daughters happiness within their care. Would and have recommended this nursery to parents looking into child care.”

    “I am a parent who has used this day nursery since 2007 and have always been extremely happy with the care provided over the years from the baby room through to preschool. Both of my children have been nurtured and allowed to grow here and I feel that the nursery adapts well and cares about the individual needs of the children. The average age of the carers is higher than normal (in my opinion), which gives a good mix of experience and enthusiasm. I would whole heartedly recommend this setting to any parent and I have :-)”

    “Chose Hartford Old School House after a friend’s 2 children attended there a few years ago. I also looked on this site and her comments were echoed in what I read. Hartford is odd in that there is a plethora of Nursery options for such a small area, but having looked around, there wasn’t even any decision to be made, it was the Old School by a country mile. On the day I was shown round by Mo, children were in the Veg patch unearthing what looked like turnips (I’m not green-fingered so I am probably wrong), other older ones were playing on a large outdoor climbing frame with 2 and 3 year olds running around in the main area. I appreciate the sun shining makes everything look better, but it was just where I could see my daughter exploring and making friends. All the staff wanted to speak to me and explain what their room did, it was fab. Now that she’s started, it’s every bit as good as I hoped and I get daily alerts on Facebook and Twitter telling and showing me what the children are up to, which considering we cannot use personal email at work, just is an added layer of reassurance that all is well. I am glad that they now ave an after-schools club now as it means in 18 months or so, that’s one less thing for me to have to worry about, Thanks Guys!!”

    “My son attended this nursery/preschool for 4 years. He has been very well cared for from day one. The standards are very high across the board, from care and education through to the meals that the children eat and standards of cleanliness. The nursery doesn’t have a high turnover of staff which means that the children see the same faces. My son has developed and learned so much here. The staff not only help with the practical things weaning, potty training etc (& give advice to struggling parents!) they have also taught my son numbers, the alphabet, how to write his name, the calendar – he can even count to ten in French! He’s also had a lot of fun playing, painting, baking, story telling and all the other activities that they do here. Overall an excellent establishment that cares and develops children so that they are ready for school. We are going to miss it!”

    — Ed B's mum

    “When we moved into the area we were concerned about moving our little boy from his previous nursery to a new one. But he settled in brilliantly due to the caring staff and the activities they provide. He absolutely loves going to Old School Nursery and gets extremely excited every Sunday about going. His sister also now attends so we have had excellent experiences of most of the rooms from the baby room to pre-school. Would fully recommend.”
