Our Story

Praise Day Nursery

We here at Praise Day nursery are a close knit community comprised of individuals who work hard on a daily basis to ensure that our children receive the highest level of care possible.

Est. 2019

Our Nursery was established in 2019 by our Owner and active director Sonia Carrington. The nursery was born out of Praise Childminding Services, an OFSTED outstanding service that was started by Sonia over 20 years ago.

Over the years, Sonia worked hard to select and train a high functioning team of trusted individuals to work alongside. The staff here at Praise are well seasoned childcare professionals that have worked together for several years to ensure that every child is able to grow and reach their potential in every aspect of their development.

Philosophy & Mission

Our aim is to create a warm, friendly, loving, and nurturing environment where children can play, learn, explore, learn and be confident. We endeavour to seamlessly continue the care given by parents at home in our settings.

Helping Your Child Explore, Grow, & Learn

"I thought Praise Nursery really went above and beyond to understand the needs of my toddler
Ada's well-being and development, always did lovely activities to stimulate her, and created a warm
environment she was very happy in.

I felt the communication and consistency was excellent to from all the staff there."

- Elisha and Ada

"My sons Zac and Ethan both attended Praise from 12 months old. The care they have received has been first class. It is a lovely nurturing environment and they formed strong bonds with their carers, as well as demonstrated strong development in a range of skills.

Zac is now in reception year - he was very well prepared for starting school and absolutely loves it as a result. We have been very happy with our experience of Praise and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it."

- Sarah

"A THANK YOU so much for taking such good acre of Danny since he was a baby! He’s had such a wonderful time with you all over the past 4 years and we have been so happy with the care and support you’ve provided.

He’s ready for his next big step – thanks to you all. We will miss everyone at Praise and hope to still see you around."

"Our little boy Charlie has attended Praise Day since September. We are absolutely thrilled with the nursery and Charlie always runs to the gate, desperate to start his day there. The staff are so caring, helpful and flexible.

They are great communicators and have gone out of their way to be accommodating to my recent change in working circumstances. We can not fault them."

- Hannah

"We just want to express our sincere gratitude, for the care, education and fun you and your team have given to our son Uriah.

You have and are playing an important role in his development, which will shape him for life to come."

- Richard & Angelique

"We love Praise Nursery! Both our children attended the nursery, from infancy to toddler age and then in the after school program. From the moment I visited the (original) setting and met Sonia, I felt the warmth and love she and all the staff have for children. Over the years, they became an extension of our family.
They truly care about the well being of every child and nothing is spared when it comes to their commitment to care. They were fantastic with my son who started at 5 months old, its never easy to leave such a little baby but I knew he was in safe and caring hands. My daughter reflects so fondly on her time here and we are so sad that we have left the UK and can’t see everyone anymore.

If you are able to enrol your child there, you are truly lucky!"

- Yasmin

"Although we're excited for our move it is with an extremely heavy heart that we have to take Edith out of her nursery. She is so happy at Praise and we will be hard pushed to find another nursery as special.

We are very grateful for the amazing love and care you have shown her over the last couple of years. "

- Nancy & Josh

"Coco will be leaving Praise Day Nursery at the end of August.
She has been very happy under your care and I am very grateful to you all - in particular the relationship she has made with Opi.

Thank you again,"

- Sarah-Jane

"We are so grateful for all the amazing care from the Praise team and will be sad to say goodbye…until our return!

All the best"
