My son is treated as an individual and feels very loved and secure with every member of staff at Triangle House. The nursery staff are energetic and enthusiastic and create a happy and stimulating environment where children are encouraged to be thoughtful, caring, well mannered and considerate individuals. I am so happy that my son has had such a fantastic start in his journey into the big wide world and will be very sad when the day comes for him to leave
