Dunkys is a fantastic and friendly nursery! All the staff are very welcoming and go that extra mile for the children and their parents! My little girl has been in the baby room toddlers and now pre school. Each and every member of staff are very kind and caring! My little girl has a smile every day running into Dunkys and always talks about her friends and staff and all the different learning activities she has been involved in. I love that I get regular updates and pictures of her days in nursery too! The nursery itself is well decorated and is safe environment, it has brilliant outdoor areas which is well utilised daily no matter rain or sun! I cannot thank Dunkys staff enough for all their amazing hard work!! I couldn’t have chosen a better nursery for my little girl!!

My daughter has attended Dunkys nursery since she was 16 months old and the struggle of leaving your child was made so much easier thanks to these loving caring girls. My daughter is almost 4 and always has a story to tell when she comes home . I can honestly say I have never trusted anyone as much as I do with these girls. The staff are very approachable, loving and caring. My daughter has learned so much throughout the years and that’s all thanks to Dunkys. Nothing is ever too much trouble and the messaging system (Famly) online enables me to communicate easily and to read upon what my daughter is doing whilst at nursery. What a credit you all are. I’m due to have my second child and without a shadow of doubt I know where my son will be attending. Thanks once again girls.

Dunky’s is a lovely warm, safe and friendly environment to work in, the staff team are very caring and considerate and know the children and families really well, through strong key worker bonds. It’s clear that the staff’s main aim is to have happy settled children and they go above and beyond to ensure this happens. My daughter has attended the nursery since she was 9 months old, the staff helped and supported a smooth transition into nursery for both myself and my daughter which made returning to work so much easier. The staff have nurtured my daughter to grow and develop and learn so many new skills through the wide variety of activities and experiences they provide, they tune into her interests and plan around these. I would definitely recommend Dunky’s to families and friends.

I would without a doubt recommend Dunky's Great Sankey to any parent out there. My child has been coming here for 18 months and it was the easiest decision we have made. My child has developed so much and loves every second there. The staff are so friendly and will help with any query that you have.

My youngest attends Dunky’s at Sankey and has loved it in every room. She didn’t have the easiest start in life which caused me a lot of anxiety when choosing a nursery for her. Dunky’s at Sankey have been excellent and helped her develop into such an independent little girl. All the staff are warm and friendly. I couldn’t recommend it enough. My eldest also attends the morning and after school club at Dunky’s at Sankey. She has loved it and even asked to attend during the holidays. The staff are friendly and lovely and I would recommend it to anyone.

Dunkys is an amazing company to work for, I have been here now for over 3 months and feel so welcomed by everyone. There is so much opportunity to grow and so much support from the head office team and other managers. The benefits are great, from holiday entitlements and rewards for length of service, staff discounts (off nursery fees) and staff awards night to celebrate the success of the company and within. There is lots of opportunity for training and to further knowledge in different areas and support with continuous professional development. The focus of the company is to make sure the children and staff are all happy and this shows with the amazing reviews we have from our parents and families.
