Muddy Boots Nursery

The Gardens, Boroughbridge Rd, York YO26 6QD, UK – 01904 289291

Excellent staff, my kids love going here! Couldn't recommend enough!

Our little boy has been attending Muddy Boots full time from 7 months (now 2.5yrs) so has progressed through the majority of the rooms. From day one the staff have been amazing with him and us. It was a nerve racking and emotional time placing our only child in nursery at such a young age but they were able to put our worries at ease and settled him and us into nursery life without much of a fuss. They have been flexible to deal with any little quirks or challenges that we as a family have faced and even managed to get our little boy sleeping independently and eating (which is no mean feat). Since those early days our son has developed into an amazing caring, confident child and I place a lot of this down to the wonderful loving, family environment of the nursery. They have always been there to give extra cuddles when needed as well as answer any questions we have had as first time parents. The nursery has been really important in our son’s life as we have no close family or friends living nearby so it has given us all the chance to form an extended family. It is wonderful to see him run into nursery every morning and to hear about all his exciting adventures when we collect him and watch him learn and grow.

Manor Church of England Academy

Millfield Ln, Nether Poppleton, York YO26 6PA, UK – 01904 798722

This school is an excellent educational institution, their quality of teaching and pastoral care is second to none. Students are worked hard but compassionately so with the intent to get the best out of them, in the words of a child who goes there “You learn a lot more in a lesson than at Huntington” which says it all. The schools use of technology is also excellent and really enhances the quality and breadth of teaching. I cannot recommend enough.

My friend said it is a good school

Lovely school but lots of changes over the past year with teachers leaving and timetables being changed.

From a dance dad's point of view... An incredible dance school, run by elite dance teachers with a wealth of experience in dance and educating children. Lovely big dance studios, a great atmosphere. The ballet classes are exceptional and its no surprise En Pointe have won 'Best Dance Classes' in York 3 years running. Very impressed and I would recommend highly.

York Maths Tutor

33 Allerton Dr, Nether Poppleton, York YO26 6NL, UK – 01904 862031

Keir provided an excellent tuition service in the run up to my A-level Maths exam - having initially struggled in the larger class room environment, I found the 1-1 tuition allowed me to excel well beyond my initial expectations. His vast knowledge of the subject was evident & he was an excellent teacher - patient, friendly & had a great gasp of where i could improve. Thank you Keir!

Keir has an astounding ability to explain even the most complex mathematical concepts in a very intuitive way. He will help you understand these concepts instead of just memorising them, which will prepare you for any questions the exams throw at you. Can't recommend him enough!
