Quotation Mark

[Our daughter] has been in the care of the team at Casa Natura from 10 months to 4 years old, and has thrived under their care. Looking for nursery space during Covid, I was very anxious about the thought of putting my (quite young) child into full-time care. The team at Casa Natura really put my mind at ease, with their beautiful home-from-home setting, compassionate style of care and careful planning of daily activities for the children. [Our daughter] has really progressed at Casa over the years, no doubt down to the hard work of the team. The Curiosity Approach has meant that she is also smart little cookie who is very prepared to start reception in September.

Our LO has now been at Casa Natura for almost a year and she loves it there. She settled so quickly thanks to the lovely staff and warm atmosphere. We get detailed daily updates and pictures of the kids that we look forward to every day on a very convenient and useful app. The effort the staff put into the activities each day is incredible and we are so grateful our LO is learning and having so much fun every day. We know every member of staff and they know us so there is always a familiar face at the door. The food is fantastic and facilities great. Finally our LO can now count in English and Spanish which is a great party trick! We couldn't recommend Casa more highly.

We love Casa Natura. Our little girl runs into the house every day, delighted to be there, and hops out so happy each day, having spent so much time being cared for and nurtured in a lovely home setting. It really is like having another family for our daughter. They go on cute little outings to the shops, library, gallery or park and even have a sports day. The activities are so creative - so many different arts and crafts, music, playing with water and cooking. And as a bonus, she has learned Spanish, too. It’s a wonderful setting and very valuable to the local community.
