"My son has attended Babinogion 4 mornings a week since he was 10 months old. I have been completely happy with the care he has received. All the staff are friendly and polite and always happy to discuss anything with you as a parent. His development has definitely been enhanced by attending the nursery. They have been flexible where possible when I've needed to book him in for extra hours, which I find a great benefit if having to rearrange working days. I would be happy to recommend Babinogion to anyone looking for childcare."

"Both my daughters attend Babinogion part-time; my eldest in the preschool room and my youngest in the baby room. From day one, everyone at Babinogion has made us feel welcome, included and valued as parents. The range of activities provided for both my girls is excellent. My eldest daughter frequently asks to go to Babinogion on the days that she isn't there! My 11 month old started at 8 months, and Laura and the girls in the baby room have made every effort to make her settling in period as pleasant and stress-free as possible. I am eternally grateful for all the reassurance I have received during times when I have been on the phone to ask about how she's doing; the staff are very accommodating. I feel so much more relaxed at work knowing that my girls are looked after so well here at Babinogion and that they are both having a lovely time. Thank you Gwenan, Jo and the team for making us feel so welcome."

"I was unsure about sending my 2 year old to a nursery, as a first time mum I didn't think anyone else could look after her the way I do. It took my daughter a while to settle, I think I shed just as many tears as she did! But the staff at babinogion were amazing! I was never made to feel silly and they were so supportive of both me and my daughter! She now loves coming to nursery and tells me how excited she is to see all of her 'Aunties' there. My daughter has thrived since attending this nursery, she is more sociable and has made friends which was difficult before due to her being an only child. I cannot praise Jo, Gwenan and each of the staff members enough!! Thank you all!"

"My daughter has been cared for by Meithrinfa Babinogion since she was 5 months old, first attending the Caernarfon setting and then moving to the Menai Bridge setting when it opened in September 2012. She is now just over 3 years of age and so Meithrinfa Babinogion has been a constant in her life, with the manager and the staff all being instrumental in her care and development.
I have always been extremely impressed by Meithrinfa Babinogion on several counts: the level of communication with me as a parent; the level of care and consideration offered to my daughter; and the warm and inviting atmosphere within the nursery itself. My daughter is considered as an individual, not just 'another child' - her likes and dislikes are known and accommodated, her development level is a consideration in all activities, and she is treated like one of the family.
My own particular opinion of Meithrinfa Babinogion is that it is run impeccably well, it adheres to all standards and legislations set out for such a setting, and it does this whilst also putting the customers, the parents and the children, as the priority. The staff are always very attentive, very amenable and nothing is ever too much trouble.
With my child getting older, I held a concern that she should move to an educational establishment in order to stretch her academically and educationally, rather than stay within a nursery setting, but unfortunately my work schedule means that I cannot accommodate school hours. However, those concerns are non-founded - my daughter is stretched academically within Meithrinfa Babinogion, she participates in a wide range of educational activities, and I know that she will not be at a disadvantage when she does start school full-time.
I cannot recommend Meithrinfa Babinogion highly enough - they have been a goldmine of a find. My daughter is happy and thriving within their care, and I am content that the setting is safe and operated to the highest of standards."

"Florence has been going to Babinogion since she was about 7 months and she loves it! My transition back to work was made so much easier with Florence being able to have a gradual introduction to the nursery and staff, and the advice we were given when Florence first started (and continue to get) has been great – particularly for first time parents! The staff are friendly and cheerful, and you can tell how much Florence enjoys being around them as she is always quick to share a smile and a cuddle. Florence's development is coming on leaps and bounds, and it's great that she gets to enjoy time with other kids and have fun doing lots of different activities. I have recommended Babinogion to friends who have kids. We are expecting again, and our new arrival will be joining Florence too when I return to work early next year."
"Our two year old son has attended Babinogion Menai since he was nine months old.
I chose this nursery because the fully refurbished premises were spacious, light and airy, clean and cheerfully decorated, with plenty of outside and inside play space, and a generous car park for the morning drop off. The staff appeared friendly, professional and committed to the welfare and development of the children in their care. The safety and security regimes also impressed us, as did the provision of separate rooms for different age groups, which mirrors what the children will later experience at primary school.
To date, our initial impressions have proven correct in every respect, and our one year old twins have also been attending since they were nine months old. All three of our children have settled in without fuss and attend happily each day that they are there. In particular, we have noted how the staff make the effort to understand the individuality of each of our children and adapt their care and teaching to suit their particular needs. The staff seem able to make each child feel special."
