See What the Parents Have To Say

Molly has been attending Dunky's since she was 9 months old, and has always been very happy and enjoys coming to Dunky's. The staff are always friendly, polite and are always on hand to speak to. I always get a daily update on what she has done at nursery. Molly is full of confidence which I believe the staff have helped to achieve this and feel she is well equipped for when she starts school in September. I always recommend Dunky's to friends and family as it is a great setting for children to thrive. Dunky's are also very accommodating as I am a shift worker, this is something other nurseries won’t accommodate.

I chose Dunky's as it was conveniently by my workplace. It doesn’t cost as much as other nurseries. It has a brilliant indoor ball pool and tunnels which my boy loves. So even if it’s raining they can still have a great play. All of the staff are lovely and helpful. It is a great place for my son to grow and learn,  we love it!
Denise Gwillym

My son can’t wait to tell me what he has done at Dunky's each day. I am really impressed with the nursery programme as it captures all of my child’s interests and I can see that he is learning new things every day. At the moment he has been engrossed with the life cycle of the caterpillars and has really enjoyed watching them turn into chrysali before releasing them at the gardening club.

“My son has attended Dunky's for nearly 8 months now. He really enjoys the time he spends there and it is lovely to hear him chat about all of his special friends and all the staff which he obviously cares for very much! He has recently moved from baby to toddler room. During this time I was very anxious but the staff made the transition very personal for him, nothing was rushed and I was fully informed at every stage. Thank you.
