They are much more than childcare providers, they are like an extension of our family. The ethos of 'nurturing children through family values' is clearly shown in every aspect of the nursery!

My son attends The Spinney Bell Meadow and I have full confidence in the care he is provided with. I know when I leave him at the door he is going to enjoy a fun and full range of activities whilst in a friendly and safe environment. He always enjoys his meals here (more than at home!) and especially enjoys the outdoor play area which I find hard to tear him away from when collecting! Overall a very welcoming, professionally run yet homely nursery school which I would have no doubt in recommending to other parents. Sarah G

In July 2012, said about The Spinney Bell Meadow Day Nursery

Our son goes to this nursery, after careful consideration of which one to put him into we felt that there was a real personal feel to this nursery. Each and every member of staff not only ensures the best for the children in their care, but there is a real sense of family values. Everyone knows everyone and our son really has developed with the help and guidance from all at the Nursery. True care is shown from Alison and John, the Owners, Louise the Manager and all of the staff, in particular Ella who our son took a great shine to from day 1. Now he can talk and tell us about his day it only compounds what we grew to expect, with him enjoying every day he goes and the interaction with all of the other children. I am confident that, with all of the activities they put in place for the kids and the meals prepared in house, it is the next best thing to home. Without a doubt we feel that he is in one of the best places in the area helping our child to develop. "A very pleased Mam and Dad" Chris W

I have used this nursery for my childcare for the last 5 years - both of my children started at 6 months old. My son still attends, and my daughter makes use of the after school and holiday club at the sister site. In all these years, there has never been any incidents or concerns about the care that our children receive; staff are always willing to discuss any issues; are always able to spend time talking to us and my husband and I trust them implicitly. They were only the second nursery that we looked at when our daughter was first born, and we didn't look any further. We knew following that visit that we would be happy for our daughter to go there, even at at the tender age of 6 months old. Their care is based on good family morals. I have recommended them and I will continue to do so. Well done to all the staff on both sites (Hoole and Bell Meadow). They work exceptionally hard and deserve all credit given to them.

In August 2011, said about The Spinney Bell Meadow Day Nursery

Our 2 year old attends the Nursery and our 5 year old attended from age 7 months and now uses the after school club. My wife and I are very happy with the service they provide and would definitely recommend them. It is a small nursery which means the staff get to know each child (and family) well and we like this. They are very flexible and as working parents, this has been a great help. The care is excellent and staff are professional but approachable.

In September 2010, said about The Spinney Bell Meadow Day Nursery

We chose the Spinney Bell Meadow a few months ago for our toddler after having seen a couple of other nurseries that just didn't 'feel' right. Within a very short period of time our daughter was running into nursery, and we've even had a few occasions where we can't get her to leave - which is testament to how happy she is! Alison, Louise and the team are fantastic with the children, very hands-on and they really to engender a family atmosphere of fun and happiness. Nothing is ever too much bother, in the early days when we were understandably anxious about leaving our daughter, they were fantastic, and positively encouraged us to check in on her. I would advise anyone looking for a nursery to pop in and look around - they welcome visitors at any time. Suzi P

In September 2010, said about The Spinney Bell Meadow Day Nursery

We have three boys who receive childcare from Alison and her team at the Spinney Nursery. Our eldest son, who is now 6, has been going to the nursery since he was 6 months, and our twin boys for one year. It is testament to the team at the Spinney that we continue to seek their assistance in providing care for our children whilst we work, as there are nurseries closer to home that could be viable options for us. We feel however so completely at ease and confident in the Spinney's approach to the excellent childcare they provide for our sons that we would not consider any other options. Alison and her team provide our family with complete reassurance that we will receive balanced, creative and loving care for our children, done with a sense of positive enthusiasm and appropriate nurturing. The core elements that we as a family deam important to the confident and happy growth of our children are carried on through the care at the Spinney and each child is treated individually and with respect, which is vital to us (particularly for twins!). As long as we continue to need childcare we will continue to seek the help of Alison and her team. Also, we fully appreciate the flexibility Alison has shown us to support our busy schedules over the past year. We will always recommend this nursery to anyone seeking childcare - I have forwarded the website link to many people already! Thank you Alison - you and the team are like an extension to our family!

In August 2010, said about The Spinney Bell Meadow Day Nursery

One of the most important decisions you will make is choosing the right nursery for your child and we certainly did that for Thomas with the Spinney Nursery. They really embed a family ethos which the children can relate to and the children are classed as children not a number or a means to a profit. The buildings are kept clean and the food is all made fresh on sight. We really appreciated the recent open day that was run which gave us an opportunity to review our child's development folder and meet the key worker. It was great to see such a variety of activities that the children do each day. The Spinney is passionate about development which will see Thomas well prepared for his coming years in Pre School and primary etc. Professional, Clean, Family, Trusting, Development, Attentive, Superb. A real winner and a clear demonstration of how things should be done well first time and every time. Andrew, Jennifer and Thomas

In March 2010, said about The Spinney Bell Meadow Day Nursery

Having looked at many nurseries in and around Chester I can say I have never experienced one as lovely as The Spinney Bell Meadow. The staff are fabulously attentive to the children and babies, and I have found a very rare mix of true professionalism and genuine care for each child. The premises are exceptionally well looked after, a pride in the job that seems to extend to everything they do. My son Joseph is very happy here and has developed great confidence in what could be quite an alien environment. Alison and Louise have been tremendously supportive and are even on emergency call to take Joseph when I go into labour with my second! I could not ask for a better team of professional and caring nursery staff for Joseph. A true best of Chester. Rachel H

In February 2010, said about The Spinney Bell Meadow Day Nursery

Having thoroughly researched all nurseries in Chester, I decided upon the Spinney Bell Meadow for my little girl. The care the children receive is fantastic, all members of staff are very friendly and know my daughter by name. The management team are great and did all they could to help settle my little girl in. I arrived unannounced a number of times and stayed several times whilst settling my daughter into the nursery-all this is encouraged. The building is very clean but adorned with paintings and photos with lots of newish but well-used toys. Well done to Alison, John and deputy Louise - I can't thank you and your fab team enough. PS - the food always smells lovely!! Laura F

In January 2010, said about The Spinney Bell Meadow Day Nursery

I would highly recommend the Spinney Bell Meadow Nursery. As a first time mum returning back to work I was anxious to find the right nursery for my son. After visiting a number of nurseries in the Chester area I was surprised at the poor level of service and care offered, however I am pleased to say that this is not the case at the Spinney Bell Meadow. My son is a happy confident little boy who enjoys playing with the other children and nursery nurses. I feel lucky that I can go to work and not have to worry about my son as he is looked after and cared for to the same level as if he was at home with me. For that I cannot thank Alison and the team enough! Christine

In January 2010, said about The Spinney Bell Meadow Day Nursery

The care provided is the best that any parent could wish for. Our son started attending at 18 weeks of age, the staff & management have become like family members over the last 6 and a half years. Nothing seems to be too much trouble in order to ensure the safety and well-being of all the children in their care. One very recent example of this was during the very adverse weather conditions we experienced in Chester. My car was snowed/iced in and I was unable to get to The Spinney to collect Michael - there was a 2 hour wait for any taxi services. The driving conditions were really difficult due to the snow drifts that had been non-stop for several hours. Understandably I was distraught, but John Thomson, the owner, drove my son home. My son arrived home calm and happy. This I do not feel would have happened with any other childcare provider. My sincerest thanks.

The Spinney Bell Meadow has always provided an excellent standard of care for my children, whilst I worked full time and now that I work from home. I have found them more flexible than any other nursery and or childcare on offer. Despite having to travel further since we moved house, it is well worth the extra distance for the peace of mind. I would recommend given the positive experience we have had. Emma
