Here's what the parents think...
"The staff at Clyde Valley Kindergarten are very friendly and are reassuring through a difficult time when going back to work. The online journal which they have in place is great and allows you to see what activities your child has been doing each day and you feel part of their experience. I would recommend Clyde Valley Kindergarten to anyone."

"The manager assured us that we could contact the Kindergarten at any time to speak to her in person or to our daughters key worker to ask how she was. And, she meant it as anytime I have called or gone into the Manager’s office I have always been made feel welcome and my questions (no matter how small) have always been answered.
The Kindergarten is located in a lovely part of the Clyde Valley and the children have a great outside area to play in allowing them to get fresh air and enjoy the outside space. There is also an Eco garden within the Kindergarten which children are encouraged to help in and the children are also invited to be part of the Eco Committee. The Eco initiative within the Kindergarten has taught our daughter the importance of recycling and made her aware of how we, as a family, can help recycle.
The Kindergarten provides a great service which is educational and has encouraged our daughter to become more independent, outgoing and respectful to others and also prepared her for when she started primary school.
Clyde Valley Kindergarten clearly provides each child with the opportunity to experience learning in
a fun way from a very early age. Each member of staff, and the Manager, are friendly, helpful and approachable and they encourage the children to complete their goals in a fun and safe environment.
Our daughter has been going to Clyde Valley Kindergarten since she was 6 months old and she absolutely loves it! She is now 6 years old and still uses the Kindergarten for Breakfast Club, Out of School Care and also during the holidays where she attends Summer School.
We looked at other child care providers within our area and it was clear from our first visit to Clyde Valley Kindergarten that it was a pleasant, inviting and most importantly, a fun place for the children. Every member of staff greeted each child as they came into the building by name and greeting them with a smile and asked how they were."

"We loved the nursery straight away. The outdoor space, dedicated chef cooking hot meals onsite and the wide range of inclusive activities immediately drew our attention. Each of the team are genuine, caring and consistent and build really lovely relationships with the kids'
For us, Clyde Valley Kindergarten ticked lots of boxes which were important to us. Our daughter clicked really quickly with the early years workers and built really nice relationships with both the team members and other kids. She flourished in an environment in which outdoor activities were really important and nurtured. We felt choice was important and taking her own feelings into account by implementing the 'thumbs up' feedback was an important step in her development, allowing all the kids to share their views'
I'm so pleased that we chose Clyde Valley Kindergarten for our daughter. She loves going to nursery and regularly says she wants to stay longer! She's built great relationships with all the team, she has
a healthy and varied appetite thanks to Wendy who provides meals for the kids and loves the outdoors thanks to the amazing outdoor space. I love the regular interaction we have with the nursery team through the different communications shared with parents from evenings, ad hoc emails and the regular newsletters'
We are so glad we chose to send our daughter to CVK. She has flourished in the care of Suzanne and her team and loves going to nursery (sometimes even wanting to stay for longer) and it's reassuring to know that the level of care she receives is excellent. The nursery has great facilities, excellent outdoor space, innovative staff who are always looking for things to improve and a dedicated chef (that the kids love!) who prepares hot meals onsite. We've been really pleased with the variety of activities offered and the support we as parents have received."
