“Harriet loves attending Boldon Outdoor Nursery School – she shares stories/experiences with her family and friends.  She feels safe and knows she is special to all of the staff.  She talks fondly about the staff to family and friends (especially Shannon, Zara and Sam).  Harriet’s confidence in her own ability has grown and she is great at problem solving.  I love Friday mornings as it is my only opportunity to drop Harriet off.  Always a smile to welcome us, a jolly “good morning”.  A calm relaxed atmosphere (Breakfast club drop off).  Phil and I wish Harriet could stay in this nurturing environment past nursery age.”

“Jude is the second of my children to attend Boldon Outdoor Nursery.  There was no question to send him anywhere else.  When my oldest started school, someone made a passing comment to me that “you know which children went to the outdoor nursery”.  At the time I took that to be a derogatory comment.  However, from my experience now, I know that Boldon Outdoor Nursery children are – confident, adventurous, independent, physically strong.  They are aware of the environment around them, from being able to describe the type of clouds in the sky to having the confidence to explore their surroundings.  The staff are exceptional – engaging the kids interests, my child is made to feel important and they instill a can do attitude in them.  Jude has formed some wonderful friendships and it’s been a real privilege to send him here.”


Parent of E Lewis

“Eve has had such an amazing experience at Boldon Nursery.  She has learned so much about nature, how to use and make tools, how to climb, grow plants and vegetables.  She has loved every minute from looking after the chickens to creating masterpieces in the Studio.  She is going to miss all the staff as she has formed relationships with all the girls.  I would definitely recommend Boldon Nursery to family and friends.”

“Oliver has had a wonderful year and a half at Boldon Nursery thanks to the amazing efforts of every member of staff here.  Every concern has been effectively dealt with in a very child-centre way.  We have been confident that every day our little boy has been engaged and challenged in a way that suits his interests and needs.  We would recommend this Nursery to anybody who wants their child to thrive in the natural environment.  I don’t believe the same results would happen in a different environment or without the super skilled staff from office to teachers everybody caters to this age group really really well.  Rebecca has been exceptional with helping at transition time.  Thank you.”

“It is evident that all staff are passionate about their Nursery and the children and families they support, inclusive of SEND and school transitioning.  The ethos of the outdoor Nursery and learning through nature is a fantastic foundation to young children’s development, as well as the forward-thinking, ongoing research and staff – training which is apparent in the relationships between the staff and children.  Our son’s had the best start to this educational journey, thanks to Boldon Outdoor Nursery School… And lots of fun.

“Esther’s confidence has significantly increased over the last year.  She is much more confident in social situations with adults and her peers.  She is more confident in new and unfamiliar situations and now finds it much easier to try new experiences.  The nurturing and care provided by each and every member of staff at Boldon Nursery has undoubtedly played a significant part in this.  Esther has grown in confidence in the Nursery space under the watchful and care gaze of the Nursery team.  They have all taken the time and effort to get to know and understand Esther and her needs and have done everything in their power to meet them.  Sending Esther to Boldon Nursery School was the best decision we could have made for her.  Thank you everyone at Boldon Nursery School.”
