Jeanette, Parent, February 2016
We would like to thank all the nursery staff for their dedication and care shown to our daughter during her time at the nursery. You have all been instrumental in her development and the contribution to her early education in invaluable. We cannot thank you all enough and wish you all the best for the future!
Nadine & Michael, Parents, January 2016
I just wanted to drop a quick line to say how much these updates are appreciated and looked forward to. It gives us an insight into how well organised the children's meals are, the variety of foods they get a chance to get familiar with through Asquith - and how well they are taken care of from a balanced nutrition perspective. My mum teaches food nutrition at an M.Sc. level and always has a good word to say about meal planning at the nursery. It's my cooking that gets questioned more :) I always send on your monthly newsletters and any such updates onto the grandparents. They love being in the loop and feel that much closer to our child's world despite being in a different country. The teachers at Kew have always been great - looking after our daughter with care and affection. As an organisation too, you guys touch our lives in more ways than one. Thank you for the fantastic job you and your team do every day, it's very much appreciated.

Hope you all have a lovely Easter. 4th July will be very sad for all of us. Can't believe how quickly the last 4 years has gone since our daughter joined Kew children's day nursery as a little baby! She's the lovely (most of the time! ;-) ) little girl she is in no small part thanks to the nursery and the way you and your wonderful team have brought her on.
