Thank you to all the staff, especially my son’s class of helpers and of course Ms Dalal. My son Troy has loved his last year and a half at the nursery and he will miss it very much indeed. It will be his last day on Wednesday and then he will be going to school next term. I have to say it will be a very very sad day on Wednesday and wish to say thank you very much for the love, care and attention you have given my son whilst being there, I couldnt fault the nursery in any way and the staff are all lovely, caring and generous and would recommend it to any parent!Tracey Galloway July, 2012
Thank you to Ms. Marta, Maxine, Dalal and all staff at Crystal Valley Nursery, you are a great team and all the love and care you give to the children each day is absolutely wonderful, thank you.Bernadette King-Turner October, 2011
My son Troy, who is now 2 years of age, has been in the nursery for about 8 months now and he loves it. All the helpers and teachers there love him too which makes him feel very comfortable and makes me feel very happy leaving him there. Unfortunately he has had a change of head teacher of his class a few times which obviously affects him slightly but he seems to settle back in easily enough with the new one. But i have to say generally i am very happy indeed with the nursery and would recommend sending their child there, everyone is very welcoming and makes you feel at ease, which is definitely what you need when you leave a young one in someone else’s care, I feel he is getting a great introduction to life at nursery and being with children his own age is wonderful, and also doing so much more activities than what i would be able to give and show him at home, I am sure he will be there right up until he is of the age he needs to move onto school. Thank you for giving my boy the great attention and love which he needs and wants, it really is a lovely nursery.Tracey Galloway August, 2011
My son is enrolled in Diamond Class, under Teacher Kera and assisted by Lolita and Raquel since January 2011. The warmth of Teacher Kera and unwavering care of her assistant teachers provided me peace of mind to leave my son in Crystal Valley Nursery. I felt their love and understanding for my son when I informed them of the special attention required for my son. I was able to meet with the Ms. Sharon and Ms. Paris who altogether boosted my hope in providing appropriate assistance for my son. Even the school dietician is very accommodating of the special diet of my son and happily ensures that he eats well. With Crystal Valley, i have found a second home for my son. Thank you to all of you and please continue loving and taking care of each child like your own!Mary Gueco July, 2011

I get my daughter to crystal valley nursery after I visited many nurseries, I felt comfortable with the people who is working there as first impression. My daughter loves the nursery; she improved a lot in the communication skills where after one month from joining she was able to communicate to others in English and Arabic well and singing too. She enjoyed the handcraft activities a lot and the other classes such as Kun fu, ballet & drumming. She was so exciting for the performance in her graduation ceremony. She always talking to her family – cousins about her scholl and what did they do!
I’m so proud & happy for my decision to take my daughter to the Crystal Valley Nursery. I am planning to get my second baby to this nursery inshallah.Rawda Al Ali - Afra's Mum July, 2011
very nice nersery with so kind people I feel safe when my baby is there 🙂Roaa Talal July, 2011
When my son first joined the Nursery, he was not very good in dealing with other kids because he doesn’t have friends his age. Now, having stayed in the Nursery for 2 Semesters and a half, I’ve seen such a big improvement in him. He learned the value of sharing, borrowing nicely, saying please, and sorry when needed. He now enjoys the company of his friends and always looks forward to coming to school in the morning. His speech is better now and his vocabulary has greatly improved as well. I’m also very grateful that though my son might have moody moments, his teachers are very patient and loving. I know that when he is in the Nursery, he is in good hands. Thank you Crystal Valley Staff.Mrs. Gonzaga July, 2011
It is the most wonderful nersery in Dudai. My son used to cry on Friday and Saturday because he wants to go to the nursery . Put your children in Crystal valley nursery and be sure they are in honest hands because they are mothers not teachers .Eman July, 2011
