Defending nursery

Dc have both been at nursery since they were 6 months old and bar a couple of minor incidents I've been very happy. It has gone downhill a bit recently due to a key member of staff leaving - she was exceptional and is sorely missed. I have been chatting to a number of other parents who have said how bad the nursery is, how it no longer specialises in what it is and that if their dc weren't starting school in September they'd pull them out.
Now one of these parents is very vocal and I am worried they are going to try and ruin the name of the nursery. I don't agree with their opinions and am still happy with the nursery although admit it's not as good as before.
My dilema is whether to highlight this possible issue to the nursey (assuming they don't already know). I don't want to be thought of as a drama seeker or sticking my nose in but equally I don't want the good name of the nursery ruined. Wwyd?

I would leave it.

If the nursery are genuinely doing a good job then recommendations from other parents will outweigh the negative comments.

If there are real issues that need to be addressed then I expect the parents will take it up with the nursery themselves.

Either way I don't know how your involvement would help. The nursery can't really do a PR campaign?

You're right of course. I just feel really protective of the nursery and thought maybe forewarned was forearmed or whatever the saying is!!

I would just say something if it came upon conversation. Just say. Well I like the nursery. Or I think it's just fine xxxxx enjoys going and is learning. Just give a simple contradictory opinion. That'll shut her up.
