What our parents say

“My daughter’s language has improved a lot since attending Wise Owls. She is gaining more confidence and she is starting to form relationships with new people, as she is quite shy. I would totally recommend the nursery to my friends!” – Sarah, Baby Room


“Staff seemed more friendly and engaged than other nurseries. The atmosphere seemed more welcoming. The staff answered questions and made the application process seem easy, we felt like guests rather than just customers. That is why we chose Wise Owls!” – Mike, Baby Room


“I was impressed with the facilities and staff’s friendliness, the location is really convenient for us and my son really enjoys his time here. You are doing a great job!” Stephen, Toddler Room


“Google helped me find your nursery. After the look around, it just felt right. The changes I see in my daughter since starting here are: increased independence, good communication and language skills, increased social skills and cooperation. I have already recommended the nursery to friends and family.” – Amber, Pre-school Room
