What Parents Have Said About Brinkley Lane

I would like to thank the Brinkley Lane Nursery team for the outstanding care they have given to Millie over the past three years.  Every Team member is kind, thoughtful and professional.  I am eternally grateful for their efforts and I'm sure this is over and above anything I could find elsewhere.  Thank you.

What Ofsted say about us

The quality of the teaching is exemplary. Practitioners are dynamic and demonstrate a superb knowledge of how children learn. Practitioners provide a stimulating range of learning oppertunities, which give children the freedom to develop their own interests and learning styles, so that they make excellent progress in their learning.
