Questions & Answers

Each year we offer parents the opportunity to come in and take part in the class with their child. These "Stay and Play" sessions are limited to parents and grandparents (sorry no siblings for insurance reasons) and can be booked in advance (one family at a time). We have a timetable posted on the door of the classroom where you can fill in your name and the day that suits you.
We don't encourage children to miss any sessions, but you can talk to us about any arrangements you have made and we can advise on the best course of action.

    I think the staff are fantastic with the kids and can always get the best out of them in a fun way and I know my son will really miss all the staff and other kids. He has thoroughly enjoyed his time there.

    Keep up the good work! My daughter has enjoyed her time at the nursery very much and we’re both a little sad that the time has almost come to an end. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the nursery to any family or friends. Thank you for providing my daughter with an excellent start to her education.

    This year has been a wonderful beginning of schooling for my child. It has been nothing but a positive experience, with a friendly teaching and caring atmosphere. It is sad that this year has gone so quickly – I have watched my child develop and flourish through the excellent teaching methods. Thank you Ballymena Nursery for everything you do and invest in our children. Please know that you are a very much appreciated staff team.
