What our Parents Say

"I just wanted to pass on my thanks to everyone, especially staff in my daughter's unit. It’s really noticeable when I pick her up how happy and well cared for she is; the constant cheery attitude of the staff doesn’t go un noticed and is another fantastic element of Red Bus. Thank you for providing such a wonderful caring home from home for our daughter even in these funny times."

- Kindergarten Parent, Coombe Dingle, March 2021

"Our son absolutely loves Red Bus even though he has only been going since February, and by the seems of it when he arrives, he is loved too. This brings such a joy to me everyday when we drop him off seeing the smiles from your staff and also to see how rapidly he is beginning to learn and pick up new things. The daily photographs and updates are mine and my girlfriend's favourite part of the day! Thank you all for your hard work"

"My husband and I have seen and have truly appreciated and been impressed by all the love and nurturing the Nursery team has shown to our daughter over the months she has attended, and the professional approach to childcare which has been given. Especially through these unprecedented times and just how everyone has pulled together to ensure that the children’s learning and development progresses as smoothly as possible. We are heartfully grateful for all of that. Thank you for all you have done in making our daughter feel comfortable cared for and safe."

“You are all doing an excellent job. Our children love Red Bus and we couldn’t be happier with how well they are looked after. The staff are lovely and overall have done an amazing job in a very challenging year.”

“My child has loved attending Red Bus and often asks to see his key person when at home! He shouts their name with excitement when on the way to nursery too. I think the ParentZone app and its use by the nursery is wonderful. I love seeing pictures of my child during the day and to see how they are getting on - it also helps me to talk to them about their day at pick up. Red Bus makes me feel that my child is well looked after and safe. I can drop him off in the morning knowing he is with attentive and kind staff who will take care of him and do their best to make sure he has a happy day.”

"All the staff at Red Bus are fantastic! My son started during the pandemic so I have never been able to physically see him in the room. This hasn't mattered too much as the communication has been fantastic, he is always so happy going into nursery and talks about nursery with such joy and enthusiasm. It is very clear that he is being given lots of lovely opportunities and activities to aid his development but, perhaps more importantly, he is so well nurtured.

I have previously sung the praises of the Kitchen staff but I will say it again. The way his dietary needs have been catered for have really blown me away. As an allergy parent, I can't explain how much this means to me. It is also so lovely to see the newsletters and be kept informed with emails and letters regularly. You really are outstanding!"

“The robust policies and frameworks are implemented in such a way as to enable more spontaneity and child-led play, so it feels like we have the best of both worlds in terms of formal and informal learning/support/entertainment”

“My son's key worker is so understanding and hard working and very patient. I trust her fully with my child and know she understands my son very well. Because of her, he has come a long way. The management have been absolutely fantastic and we have felt as parents listened to and understood. “
