Chuckle Bunnies Day Nursery - Swadlincote

The Old VIcarage, 35 Vicarage Rd, Swadlincote DE11 8LG, UK – 01283 552711

Our children have been in the care of Chuckle Bunnies since 2015 and we have never been disappointed with the care they have received. The staff are very friendly and child centered. The activities are wide ranging and creative. They have been accommodating with my shift patterns and the times that I have had to change the time we use their services. If we are ever uncertain about anything they are only a phone call away and are always willing to discuss our concerns in detail until we are happy with the outcome. We are happy to recommend Chuckle Bunnies as an excellent childcare provider.

I couldn't recommend Chuckle Bunnies Day Nursery enough! My son can be extremely shy with strangers, leaving him and returning work was something I dreaded. The staff at Chuckle Bunnies took care of both myself and my son during the process of returning to work. A good nursery contributes greatly to the right work lift balance.

Albert Village Community Primary School

Occupation Rd, Swadlincote DE11 8HA, UK – 01283 217880

My children are very happy here! They always look forward to going to school. They made really great friends. It is a brilliant school with brilliant teachers/staff. Staff are always welcoming and friendly. We never had any problems.

In smaller classes we feel that we are able to help the children to settle in well and to gain confidence in their learning and social development. The progress of each child is the responsibility of their class teacher, although children may work with a number of other teachers, teaching assistants and helpers during the school day.

After School Care

Woodville Day Nursery

Blacksmith's Ln, Woodville, Swadlincote DE11 7EF, UK – 01283 552277

I feel so comfortable leaving my baby with them, they genuinely treat him like they would their own. I’m able to see real time itinerary of what he’s getting up to and what he’s eating throughout the day. They even take the time to take photos of it all which you can see on the nursery site. At the end of the day they take the time to let you know how he got on and how much he ate etc. The meals he gets are amazingly well cooked and thought out. Lots of healthy varieties that are all freshly cooked. They do fun activities for them that are very well thought of and imaginative. Lots of painting and texture play and arts and crafts. He really experiences things that he wouldn’t have until he goes to school so he’s getting a good head start. By him being exposed to this it can only make him a more confident, happier little man. Thank you for being there when I can’t.

Happy, Caring and Friendly. Our Little Man loves it, I'm sure that he would go every day if he could.

The William Allitt School

Sunnyside, Newhall, Swadlincote DE11 0TL, UK – 01283 216404

Mr Williams (Geo), Mrs Glossop (Math), Mr Hilton (PE & resident comedian of it's a long way to Tipperary fame), Mr Crawley (Headmaster) Mrs Parker (RE), Mr Roberts (Eng), Mr Stan Bridges (Hist & Form tutor) Probably still wondering how Michael Collier and myself each came in with 98% in history test:). Many happy memories of the early 60's. Strange to say I cannot remember my Science teacher/s, which, considering I went on to become a science teacher, probably reflects poorly on them or maybe I'm becoming senile. However I do remember chasing little balls of mercury across benches in the lab, try getting away with that today!! NO THANK YOU. Finally, a very special thank you to Mr Bridges, not only was he a brilliant teacher (and disciplinarian, 'reinforced' with board ruler and/or gym pump ;)) he was a great bloke for whom I had great respect. Maybe the 5 stars is a too generous mark today, I hope not, because fifty plus years ago it was very worthy.
