'Thank you so much for having me and teaching me so much about childcare. I can tell all the children love and appreciate each and every one of you.' (Student placement comment- March 2023)

'My child always wants to come to Daycare and has said she enjoys it. I always feel I can discuss a problem with a member of staff.' (March 2023)


'All staff have been very welcoming and supportive of my child when she was settling in. You're all wonderful and so an amazing job.' (March 2023)


'What a lovely daycare. Although my son cries for his mum, I know he's in safe hands in a good environment. You've got a friendly team of staff. You're doing a great job.' (October 2022)


'I would just like to start by saying how grateful I am to Honley School Day Care. My daughter started on the 7th of September, I had spoken to Sammi and staff about my daughter and her behaviour beforehand. For example, she doesn’t engage with the staff or the children, there’s no eye contact, she doesn’t respond to her name etc. Once my daughter started properly the staff started to notice themselves, and Sammi got straight on with referrals to speech and language and SEND. The nursery have been so supportive of me and my daughter and in such a short space of time they’ve really taken the weight off my shoulders. The nursery have also made a plan for all the staff and for me and dad, to try get my daughter engaged more. Moving her to Honley school daycare was the best decision we have made, she absolutely loves it there and we are very happy too.' (October 2022)


'I just wanted to say a quick thank you to you and all the staff at daycare. I know my son has only been with you a few months but he has had the best time with you all. The way he settled in and so quickly was down to all the staff making him feel welcome and safe and he has loved every day he has spent at day care. It's been great these last few weeks being able to come into the setting to see how he interacts and it's been wonderful listening to all his stories of what he has learnt . Over the few months that he has been part of the setting I have seen how you are all working to develop the environment for the children and it's clear to see how all the staff really care about their roles. All your efforts don't go unnoticed and it's certainly appreciated. I hope you all get the recognition you deserve for all your hard work. All the staff have been wonderful with my son but I'd like to say a special thank you to Mrs Tyas. It's very reassuring to know that my son had that point of contact should he be struggling with anything and I know he adores her. It was clear from the report that time has been spent to really get to know Alf and his personality.' (August 2022)


'Thank you to everyone for making my son's time so special. He 's loved coming to Daycare and has got so much out of the environment you all help to make. He's become such a funny and confident boy because he has been allowed to be himself and learn in a way that suits him.' (July 2022)


'Thank you so much for everything you have done for my daughter. Since starting Daycare, she has come on leaps and bounds and all of it is down to you guys.' (July 2022)


'I cannot thank you all enough for the way you've taken care of my children over the years. Every single session my children have come home happy, content and overjoyed to tell me about their day. I thank you guys for helping them grow into the cool intelligent little people they are today. You are all amazing, kind, caring and patient and my boys love you- daycare so much.' (July 2022)

'I want to say a massive thank you to you all. Yesterday I was so nervous about my child coming back into nursery after Boris announced he was shutting schools but keeping nursery open, I was telling my self he wasn’t going but then thought I was been selfish by keeping him away from his super learning and support you guys are putting in with him and he had an amazing day, so thank you for the reassurance guys keep up the good work during this, I’d give you all a big hug if could but can’t so my child will have to do that.'
