A year like no other touching and effecting everyone brought with it many unprecedented changes which resulted in new coping strategies and adaptations on both personal and professional levels for all of us. As key workers and proud members of the Circus Family Team, the dedication shown in each member during these exceptional times in continuing to provide a safe, professional service to parents and families has been outstanding on so many levels.
Whilst we continue to navigate through the many changes imposed and new norms, we want to express a very heartfelt thank you to all of our customers for their ongoing support, words of comfort, kindness, gifts and beautiful testimonies. As a way of spreading some positive spirit and energy it would be lovely to share the below messages of gratitude and appreciation to our page aptly dedicated to Caring through Covid.
Caring Through Covid…
Let us know if there is anything we can do to help, although sill working full time, I could always come to cover staff lunches or any odd jobs. All in this together! Hope this is not too stressful for you. Take Care
You guys are all doing brilliantly. My son just loves coming into nursery and adores his key worker, we will support you guys in whatever way we can during this time (even if that is just bringing in some treats for the staff) All the best.
My daughter is really enjoying her time at Circus Day Nursery and comes home very proud of the new things she has learnt. She tells Jordan that she is “happy today” when I come to collect her. It makes it more difficult not to send her into nursery knowing what she is missing. I am really impressed with the alphabet activities she has been doing. I am trying to encourage it with some learning games at home too. Hopefully it will not be much longer before she can come back and join everyone again.
My daughter learns so much at nursery too, she wouldn’t be the little girl coming out of her shell if it wasn’t for the staff and giving her new experiences and interactions with others. Forever grateful for the Circus Family! For now a big heartfelt thank you.
I was actually thinking of all the staff today at Circus, wondering what I can do to show our family’s appreciation for all of you. In such an uncertain time, Circus is what gives my daughter a sense of normalcy and socialisation. Thank you to all of you for showing up and continuing on with children that have zero sense of hygiene and personal space.
Our Lovely Testimonials Throughout the Years…
After looking at a number of nurseries, the staff at circus were the only ones that took the time to actually talk to Megan and play with her rather than talking to us! We felt comfortable with them straight away. Megan has now been there a year and has developed leaps and bounds under the loving and watchful eye of the girls on Clowns and now Jugglers. They look after the kids as if they were their own and we couldn’t have chosen a better place for her!
I know that Monty and Effie love their time at Circus by the smile across their face everyday when they’re getting into the car to go. Using Circus for four years now with two children we have experienced most floors and a lot of carers throughout our time. I can honestly say that I’m sure that we couldn’t have found a better, happier and friendlier setting for the two little people we love most. From the very first day it felt like a ‘home from home’ with the girls forming great relationships with the children and the parents. I know that they are both in a safe environment within Circus but most importantly…. they are having fun. When I drop Effie off in the mornings, I feel like I’m dropping her off with extended family who love her and enjoy being with her. I have two happy, outgoing and well rounded children and I’m sure that this has been encouraged and developed by Circus. I just wished they opened a junior school so they wouldn’t have to leave at 4!
My son Hugh has attended circus nursery since he was 5 months old and absolutely loves every aspect of his care. The girls are all lovely and caring. Circus has a lot to offer for children's development. I highly recommend it as a setting. I wish he could go there forever.
As an Early Years practitioner and the senior early year’s consultant for Classpeople I have had the opportunity to visit and work closely with Circus Day Nursery. Having completed an Early Childhood Studies Degree alongside the manager Vikki, I already had a clear understanding of her professionalism and dedication to Early Years.
My little girl attended Circus for nearly four years. Not only was Circus an amazing support to me but they also offered my daughter a secure environment where she could grow, have fun and learn. She was always surrounded by positive people and happy children which has made her sociable and confident. What a great start!
Staff from the Circus Day Nursery did a great job looking after children during our daughter’s wedding reception. The children were completely absorbed in their activities, and so their parents could relax and enjoy the speeches and cabaret. Thank you!
We were recently guests at a wedding, in Cheltenham, where we were lucky enough to be able to make use of child-care provided by Circus Day Nursery staff. The two nursery carers had filled a room with toys carefully selected based on the children’s ages and the gender ratio. It was the first wedding that we had taken our boys, Oscar aged five and Felix who is three, and were slightly apprehensive, but we needn’t have worried. They loved playing with the train set and cranes whilst we were enjoying the speeches. Everyone was happy! They stayed up later than usual but as the tiredness kicked in they were able to watch the Lego Movie on the iPad. Oscar made some new friends too! Thank you for helping to make them feel at ease and looking after them so well.
Great nursery, I have visited a few times to meet Sue and the team when reviewing work for Ask Baby Cotswold. Keep up the great work.
Best nursery we’ve ever experienced. Top marks all round!
I just wanted to write to say thank you so much to my son’s key worker for the lovely letter and photos she sent home with my son on Wednesday. It really made my day to see how much fun he’d been having! I’m so pleased that he seems to be getting settled, and really appreciate her support and care for him.
I started my life at Circus Day Nursery since I was 1yr old. I am now 14 and believe this was one of the best experiences of my life. I remember what it used to be like but I would like to see it now and all the new staff etc. Mel, Caroline, Lance and Ben were the staff I remember.
Being a new mother in a new home in a new town, ensuring my two-year old son Quinn felt safe and settled at his first nursery was vitally important. I was finding my way and so would he be… I felt anxious and unsure about leaving him, but all worries melted away once I met founder, Sue and a handful of the most loving girls who would be taking care of him. From his very first day, he’s been thrilled to be in Clowns then Jugglers and now pre-school. He has blossomed into a confident, comfortable, humorous and deeply contented little boy. Curious to know more about the world and the people around him and always up for a cuddle! I know that I owe much of the grounded sense of security that he enjoys to the heart-felt care he has received from his Circus Family. Thank you with all my heart.
I just wanted to write and say thank you. My daughter has been with you for roughly 4 months now and she loves it. I was nervous about having our daughter in nursery as it’s for socialising purposes rather than because I’m at work but felt it was important for her development. I’be never even had a babysitter before because I’d rather her be with me and didn’t want to leave her so nursery was a big deal. The staff that look after and care for her are just fantastic, nothing is too much trouble. My daughter loves it at nursery and her spoken word is quickly improving I’m sure as a result. She’s making friends which is important and seems to love the team who look after her. Nothing is too much trouble and they are happy to listen to me when I drop off and pick her up which I find hugely beneficial (I’m a bit of a control freak :)). So thank you so much. I’m so pleased we chose you as a nursery.
So today was my daughters last day on pre school, what a truly amazing nursery! My little girl started her Circus journey at 9 months old and has worked her way through the setting to pre school. I can not thank the staff enough for what they have done for her, each and everyone of you are wonderful and I feel blessed that such kind warm hearted staff have looked after her… you have made her nursery experience the best ever and as one amazing chapter ends, a new one will begin for her.
I just wanted to say a massive thank you for everyone’s help in settling my daughter into daycare. It has made me fully realise that we chose the right place for her and I really appreciate how professional, friendly and smiley everyone is when we arrive each morning. She may be a little stubborn about going in to nursery but she talks non-stop about everyone when we get home and absolutely lights up, so I know she is having a fabulous time with you guys. I’ve also seen a huge leap in her speech and listening since starting at Circus. The ladies who care for her are brilliant and I’m so happy knowing that she gets to spend her days with them.
