What an amazing approach to learning. The staff are so welcoming and caring, they really take the time to tell you what your child has enjoyed in the day. I love the parent link app where we can follow our sons learning journey and he loves going out on the adventure days. The resources available and the setting that Parklands is in is just stunning as well, we feel very lucky that he is able to spend his last year before school with you....
My daughter just loves the new space at Rushen for Hopes and Dreams! The curiosity approach fits with our love at home for open ended wooden toys and the amount of sensory activities available all the time through the Rushen space really means she runs in for every session eager to do something. She looks forward to going and enjoys nurturing relationships with staff and new friends alike. The staff are so approachable and I feel like we really work as a team together for my daughter's best interests.... Read More...
Hopes and Dreams really is a very special home away from home. All the staff are so caring and genuinely seem to build individual relationships. Each day is different and allows the children to explore the learning environment themselves. My daughter has grown so much in such a short space of time in areas from dancing and singing to her food tastes. I would not hesitate to recommend Hopes and Dreams to any other parent. I’m very excited for the growth they will support over the next year.... See More
My daughter Sophie first began attending Hopes and Dreams at age 3, shortly after moving to the Isle of Man from abroad. She’d lived all of her life in an extremely small community so the busy pace of Douglas was quite a shock to her and made for a difficult transition at first. The amazing staff at Hopes and Dreams helped her to settle in and adapt quickly. She’s really been able to grow and thrive there. Now she’s finishing up in the preschool class with so much more confidence, new abilities, and friends. She absolutely loves going every day and telling us about all of her adventures and showing off her new skills when she gets home. We are sad to be leaving the Hopes and Dreams family in September, but will have lots of happy memories to look back on. We’d highly recommend Hopes and Dreams to anyone looking for the right place for their child. ... See More
Hopes & Dreams has just been that for us. Max had been to a previous nursery and did not thrive as he should and this changed from day one in Hopes & Dreams. He was shown from first day patience and understanding and this increased so much Max became much happier boy. His speech improved greatly (which had been a concern) and he began to interact with other children. Max is now about to progress to the preschool a more confident child. Hopes & Dreams make you feel like you’re part of a family - and not a business. Everything they do is with the child and their best interests in mind.... See More
Excellent care, can’t rate Hopes & Dreams high enough and would recommend their nursery to all. Thanks for a fantastic preschool year!
Have loved this nursery. Lovely friendly and welcoming atmosphere and my son has thoroughly enjoyed his time here. Would recommend to any parent.
Our daughter has really enjoyed her time at hopes and dreams, she has grown up so much! The team are really enthusiastic and supportive, she will really miss them.
Theo has only been going to Hopes & Dreams for 2 weeks but he has settled so well. We love the freedom he has to choose what he wants to do (and when), we also love the outside space the nursery have to offer as Theo’s favourite time is to be outdoors. We look forward for Theo to continue to grown here and be a part of H&D family. Thank you... See More
Our daughter started at Hopes and Dreams just after her second birthday. We were amazed at how quickly she settled in and grew in confidence. Thea asks to go to nursery every morning! Thank you to all the staff at Hopes and Dreams
