Flying Start Nursery Scoop Top Award in Filton!

We’re delighted to announce that Flying Start Nursery in the Just Childcare family, are a part of one of the UK’s Top Recommended Nursery Groups!

The award which is based on independently verified parent reviews submitted to the UK’s leading nursery review site, daynurseries.co.uk, saw the Filton Nursery receive positive feedback from parents on every aspect of the nursery from cleanliness through to resources and value for money.

Filton Nursery wins award

Although the reviews revealed excellent scores from parents across the board one thing that stood out above everything else was the love shown for our amazing nursery teams!

The nursery, which can be found on College Road in Filton received plaudits for everything from the food they serve, through to the excellent facilities. By far the largest area for praise though was reserved for the nursery staff team who featured heavily in nearly every recommendation.

“I have my baby at this nursery, and the care they provide is fantastic. His key worker is so kind to babies, and I fully rely on her to be with him. He is smiling every day when he sees her. They do plenty of messy play and visit the garden frequently.”


Time after time we read parent comments about the incredible work our childcare practitioners do and continue to do in these challenging times and we couldn’t be prouder. It’s fantastic to read about the huge positive impact they have on parents and their children in Filton.


“Choosing a nursery is one of the most difficult decisions but the team at Flying Start made this easy for us. Our son’s key worker is phenomenal – patient, thoughtful, kind and is interested in his development and his well-being.  I couldn’t recommend them more highly.”


Thank you to our parents and carers

We’d like to thank all of our parents and carers for taking the time to review our nurseries. It means so much to our nursery teams to receive recognition for the wonderful work they do with our children and families.

Thank you to the Flying Start team

Without the passion and dedication our team members show every day, there would be no awards. We’d like to say a huge thank you to every single one of our wonderful staff, who have such a positive impact on our children’s lives.
