'Since attending Oak Cottage my two girls have gained confidence and independence. They settled in really quickly, they love it. I like the fact that the equipment doesn't look worn or dirty, the nursery is clean and they have a ball pit, soft play area, climbing frame and slides inside for the children and a large ……. with a slide and sandpit.'
