Just dont take it from us.....read what our parents, The Care Inspectorate, Perth & Kinross Council and other agencies say about us....
"Doodlebugs is a very friendly, caring nursery. You always get good feedback on how the day has been and staff really get to know your children as individuals. They always take time to chat and get to know the family. The garden is a big plus and was also one of the main deciding factors, along with the welcoming friendly reception on our first visit." Mrs Auty
"I looked at a variety of nurseries, I had heard of Doodlebugs but it was a bit out of our area. After visiting Doodlebugs we were very impressed, we were shown round properly, the building is purpose built (theres only a few in Perth) and it is lovely. All the staff are very welcoming. They are always happy to take an afternoon call to give me an up-date at work. I will be sad when I have no more children at Doodlebugs." Ms Hewitt
"The doodlebugs ladies are just truly wondeful." Mrs Chalmers
What others say about Doodlebugs...
"We found the nursery providing a highly positive emotional environment. Parents who gave us feedback confirmed there were preparatory visits, clear written information and joint planning with staff for nursery transitions including children starting,
moving to different rooms and leaving the nursery. This promoted children being ready for their new experience, moves appropriately supporting their individual needs and, consequently children feeling confident and secure."
"We also witnessed staff consistently upbeat and constructive when interacting with children. They were enabling and encouraging, gave praise and recognition for achievement and gave support when children needed comfort and help. This led to the
nursery being a positive place to be and children being content, relaxed and
happy as confirmed parents' comments."
"All children appeared to be happy and settled. There was a very friendly and home like ethos throughout the nursery which supports a real sense of nurture.
Staff have developed the environment and experiences in all the younger rooms to take account of Pre Birth to Three. Staff were very excited about the new resource that had recently been bought to promote role play. We observed a very well led group music activity in the 2-3 room."
"In the 3-5 room the children were observed engaged in a variety of activities to support their learning. Staff have reorganised the layout of the room to take account of visual hygiene to support all the children in their play and learning. hildren’s learning was well documented in their personal learning folders."
"The outdoor environment is well used by all the children and has been developed to provide many stimulating and quality outdoor experiences for the children."
