" The Haven 2000 is a wonderful family-owned and run nursery and pre-school. Both of our children started at 11 months old and have stayed until school age. We are extremely happy with the quality of the care and education provided. Our youngest daughter will soon start school and has been incredibly well prepared, as was our eldest. She can count and recognise numbers, write her name, as well as sound out and recognise most letters. In addition to the educational side of things, she has been well supported in developing her self-care skills, which will stand her in good stead for life at school. The staff do an amazing job with the children and have been incredibly supportive over the years with great advice on weaning, behaviour and potty training. We could not have asked for more and are truly sad that our time with The Haven will be coming to an end when our youngest starts school in September! "
