"My son has attended Golden Lane Children’s Centre since he was 10 months old. The staff at the centre are caring, kind and my son literally runs into nursery every day. Although he is assigned a keyworker, all of the staff and children know each other. Throughout lockdown the staff couldn’t have been more accommodating and kind.

His development has excelled since attending nursery and that is in no small part due to the teachers in the nursery."

"The curriculum has a range of good enrichment opportunities, and pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is supported well"
