Currently going through the debate of which nursery to put our daughter who will 2.5yrs in September and would appreciate anyone's experiences about these two nurseries. We are both working parents so know we will need wrap around care and Parkgate does seem to do additional activity weeks at the end of each term. That said, the reputation of Marmalade seems to be good. Ultimately looking for somewhere nurturing and friendly.
My daughter has been at marmalade cat since September 2019. I can’t rate it highly enough. If you’re looking for somewhere nurturing and friendly then you can’t find anywhere better. The staff are all so caring. Yes it’s a pain to fit hours around working however well worth it if you can. She has loved it and learnt so much.
Both my children went to Parkgate and loved it also it makes getting into Parkgate Prep School easier. The parents of the school are great fun and very welcoming they have become lifelong friends. I can’t recommend it high enough.
