It was such a relief to find Millfield and witness our daughter enjoy her time in a wonderful, warm and caring nursery environment. I drop her off knowing she will have a great day playing and weather allowing, be able to explore and run around the fields behind nursery. I only wish I could join her! We can highly recommend Millfield to any parent who wants their child not only to be nurtured but also to begin the building blocks of their early education. Our daughter has grown in confidence and blossomed during her time at Millfield and come September when she starts school, will miss Millfield and all the team,  who put so much energy and enthusiasm into caring for pre-school children.

The Halsall family

Both of my children have attended Millfield and as well as them loving it, I love it too. My youngest will leave in September and we will miss the staff so much. My children have really come out of themselves while attending the nursery, my youngest hardly said 5 words when she started as now doesn't stop. They have learned so much and experienced such a friendly, warm and loving environment where the staff become more like friends. I wish I had more children just so we didn't have to say goodbye in September!! I would whole heartedly encourage any families looking for first class childcare and education to use Millfield. Thank u for such lovely years together xx

Millfield is a wonderful nursery school – no doubt about it. It is true that not all nurseries are the same and from my experience Millfield is exceptional.

The staff are extraordinarily supportive and dedicated to the nurture and development of the children in their care. They are warm, approachable, knowledgeable and caring – such that even an incredibly shy child, such as my own, quickly settle in and benefit from the high-quality early years provision provided by Millfield; my daughter often did not want to come home at the end of each day and could not wait to get back there each morning.
The provision Millfield is excellent, children are engaged, well-behaved and learn through play. Activities are fun and inventive (and sometimes messy!) and stretch them mentally as well as physically. Essentially, kids have a great time at Millfield. The nursery is also in a beautiful rural setting with lots of outside space and the children are able to take full advantage.

This is the nursery you dream of finding for your child. Friendly staff who feel like part of your extended family, fabulous setting with more outside space than my local park and a solid structured learning through play routine (with the emphasis on fun)
We were sad to leave Millfield as our son has just started school but we are already seeing the benefits as his reading and writing skills are helping him to settle in.
Millfield may be a little out of your preferred route to or from work or seem a little out of the way but that is what helps make it so special. It is definitely worth the detour and I always recommend it to friends.

We honestly could not have wished for a better start in life for our son. The wonderful staff and environment are beyond what we could have hoped. They are so kind, caring & the level of education is perfect. The nursery itself is set in the beautiful countryside, near Bingham (but not to far out), surrounded by fields which the children run in all the time. They have alpacas next to them, where they go & collect flowers & feed them, they have an amazing playground with pirate ships, summer house and of course scooters etc. Our son is the most confident, happy & caring little boy & and loves going so much that he extended his own hours! He is leaving this September to go to infant school & I am heartbroken that we have to say goodbye to Mr & Mrs Miller & all of the amazing girls that work there. This nursery is incredible xxxx

We cannot sing Milfield's praises highly enough. Having recently moved to the area, the team at Milfield could not have been more accommodating for both our pre-schoolers. They go to nursery happy, and come home full of excitement from the day. We are delighted with this nursery.

My son Alfie attended Millfield & my daughter Millie has followed in his footsteps. The nursery is in a beautiful setting & is run brilliantly by Liz & John & their dedicated staff. My children could not have wanted for a better start in life.

Between our 3 children we have attended 5 nursery settings over the years, and Millfield has been our favourite for so many reasons...the idyllic setting in the countryside, the owned fields for nature rambles/sports day behind the nursery (and the alpacas next door!), The superb outdoor wooden playground equipment, the clean, well organised free flow rooms inside, the caring experienced staff, and the friendly, helpful attitude from everyone. My youngest has just started school and his Reception teacher has been really impressed with his reading, grasp of numbers and fine motor control. Millfield has given him the best start...he's both happy and confident. This is a long established, professionally run, caring and fun setting with a real sense of homeliness about it. We miss Millfield as it holds nothing but positive memories. I would not hesitate to recommend Millfield to any parent.

E Giltinan

Our children attended 2 preschool settings over the years and Millfield Nursery School was the outstanding option. The staff are wonderful and really care about the children and their development. The daily creative activities were varied and the dance and sport sessions were a great addition. The outside play area is exceptional along with the lovely nature walks and the neighbouring alpacas. The children were school ready and have lots of happy memories they still talk about. As parents, we had complete confidence in Millfield Nursery School. We wouldn't have wanted the children to attend anywhere else!!

The attentive staff and fantastic facilities at Millfield Nursery School created very happy pre-school memories for our 3 older children whilst the youngest is still enjoying the delights of its rural location. The "Busy Bee" books produced for every child depict hours of fun painting, drawing and dressing up as well as learning to read, write and identify colours. They have baked, decorated and brought home all manner of buns and biscuits as well as tasted interesting food from around the world to celebrate and understand special events such as Chinese New Year. Wonderful arts and crafts have accompanied every occasion from harvest to Halloween and in 10 years I've never received the same card for Mothering Sunday. There are sports days and fund-raisers which give parents an opportunity to meet. Taking part in the sponsored walk around the grounds of Millfield in the summer confirmed how right we were to send our children here. The amazing staff are kind and patient and encourage these qualities from the children in their care. I particularly like the fact that the children are not confined to an age-related room but have the freedom to choose between the rumpus room or the quiet room and to establish special friendships with children older and younger than themselves. Son number one liked the books and games in the quiet room whilst highly active son number 2 loved playing outside with his friends. Millfield channeled his energy and zest for life in a positive way with its passion for the outdoors. The outdoor play area is brilliant. Our eldest daughter enjoyed singing, dancing and dressing up whilst our youngest loves painting and sticking. She's 3 and we have seen her grow in confidence since she started a year ago and her language has come on in leaps and bounds. My husband and I are delighted with Millfield and we cannot recommend it highly enough. Our children have been so happy and had so much fun, I shall be very sad when our youngest has to leave to start school. At least we have 2 more years of magnificent Millfield!

We instantly fell in love with Millfield Nursery when we looked round it. The outside space is something you don’t get in most nurseries. A perfect environment for a highly active little boy!

My son started at 3 years, a very shy and sensitive little boy. The staff were exceptional during his settling in period. The environment at Millfield is warm and caring. I watched my son develop into a self-assured, confident little boy fully ready for school!

Its obvious Millfield are totally focused on development and provide thoughtful and interesting activities to support the development of each individual child. Dance classes, football training, baking and walks in the countryside were just a few of my son’s favourite activities.

The staff and owners are truly amazing! They are friendly, attentive, supportive and caring. We have always felt confident leaving our son here which is a testament to the excellent staff.
This nursery is extremely well organised and run to an exceptional standard by the owners. Communication is excellent, including regular emails/newsletters etc.

I cannot rate this nursery highly enough! Caring staff who will do absolutely everything they can to ensure your children are happy. My only wish is that he had started there earlier!

H Deverill

Millfield Nursery School is in an idyllic environment for children, in peaceful countryside with lots of outdoor space which enhances their play and learning. The staff are kind and caring and provide a clear structure for activities throughout the day. The free flow between rooms and mixing of age groups sets it apart from other nurseries and enables friendships and mutual support to develop between the children. The nursery also provides appropriate preparation for school and has shown a thorough understanding of how children learn. Regular progress meetings have been very helpful. The nursery is very well run with long standing and consistent staff and communication with parents is excellent. The range of activities is wide and include dance lessons and walks around the grounds to visit animals in nearby fields.

Claire Byrne

We are so pleased we found Millfield Nursery School, as we believe our children have had the best possible start on their journey through education and learning social skills. Our son Isaac, has had 3 wonderful years there. He has thoroughly enjoyed his time there, grown in confidence and learnt so much in every way. Millfield really is something very special. It is with a heavy heart that we have to say goodbye as our two are now at school.

We will miss all the wonderful staff and will continue to always recommend you to all parents.

Steve & Diana Bradshaw

As a teacher myself, I feel that the amount of hard work that has gone into your records clearly reflects the detailed planning and assessment that goes into the activities provided for the children at Millfield.  My three children all attended Millfield, although they are all very different characters they have all absolutely loved their time at Millfield and you have helped them all to develop and blossom in their own way.  I have always been impressed with the way that you balance so many varied and stimulating practical activities and play with also preparing them well for school in terms of learning letter sounds and beginning to read if they are ready.

It only remains to say a huge thank you for everything you have done for our family over the past 9 Years.

With love,

Deborah Bonney

"Our daughter appears to thrive at Millfield. She is extremely happy and looks forward to going. Her confidence has grown since attending; she has clearly developed and is eager to learn. We would not hesitate in recommending Millfield to others, as our daughter obviously benefits from being there."

Sheila and Dan

"Our daughter is as happy at Millfield as our son ever was, which is why we are continuing our relationship with this nursery and then at Colston Bassett School."
