Our children both attended Willow Cottage from 12 month of age through to the end of Pre-School. We could not have loved our time at Willow more. The care provided by all of the educators was completely outstanding – they cared for our children as if they were their own and they were each extremely well prepared for school following their pre-school program. There were many tears shed when it was time to say goodbye to Willow Cottage, it will forever hold a very special place in the hearts of our family.

Willow Cottage is a beautiful nurturing centre. Gerry, Katie and the girls are so amazing. Every time I dropped off Sam, I knew he was going to have a great day. The girls have so much love to give. They not only taught them but they let the kids grow. Willow Cottage was like our second home. We miss Willow Cottage everyday

My son (Archie) was lucky enough to attend Willow Cottage from the age of 12 months until he went to school.
Willow Cottage provided us with peace of mind every single day. It was a safe and engaging environment with caring and nurturing staff where Archie could have fun with his friends. Many of the friendship bonds formed at Willow have remained over the 4 years since graduating from Willow and attending different schools.
We can’t recommend Willow Cottage and its team highly enough, it was one of the best decisions we made to send Archie there.

Willow is such a special place and we are so lucky to have been a part of the wonderful Willow community for 6 happy years.
The boys settled quickly, were happy at drop off and usually impossible to drag away at the end of the day!
We always felt supported in our parenting by the Willow staff.
I appreciated that the staff always took time to tell us about the boys day and funny anecdotes of what they’d got up to.
Some of my favourite artworks are Willow creations!
The synergy of genuinely caring staff (many the same throughout our entire time), a nurturing environment, thoughtful and varied activities and so much fun play all combined to provide our boys with fantastic, secure and happy care in their early years.
Willow is so much more than just a daycare - we joined for care but left with fantastic life-long friends.
The days are long but the years fly by - Willow will always hold such treasured memories for us.

I can’t recommend Willow Cottage highly enough. A beautiful, nurturing and caring environment for young children where the staff are committed to the best care and education of your precious little one. My son, Paddy, attended Willow Cottage from the age of 3 until 5, he flourished at Willow, it was lovely to watch him grow and develop over his time there.
The staff are outstanding, they know each child and family personally. The dedication to the care of each child is exceptional and they consistently offer a warm, home-like environment where a personalised approach to prioritised.

We absolutely loved our experience at Willow Cottage, Gerry and the team looked after our child and family so well.
It was such a warm, friendly and professional place especially with being new parents.
We just wish we could have stayed on with our next child although unfortunately had to move from the area.
I was recommended to Willow Cottage by a local friend and now I highly recommend it to anyone in the area.

Willow Cottage really was home away from home for our girls for four years. The teachers are caring and wonderful, welcoming us with smiles every day. Our girls loved their time there from the baby room all the way to the pre-school room. It is a very special place, and the Willow team really feel like an extended family

My son attended Willow Cottage in 2017/2018. He loved his time there so much. The staff were caring and attentive and the activities the kids participated in were inspiring and engaging. We saw him really blossom in confidence and creativity over the two years. We will miss Willow Cottage dearly.

We can never thank the staff at Willow Cottage enough for the creative, caring early learning environment they provided for our daughter from the time she was 2 years old. She loved the staff to bits, and so did we! The sense of community that was fostered by Gerry and her team was really special and supported us all through those early childhood years.
