Wee Ones London
Posted: 18 hours ago by Wendy W (Mother of child)
We have been delighted with the professional yet caring and creative team. They have offered a perfect balance of Montessori education and play, enabling my son to develop into a well rounded independent and confident young boy. My son has been very stimulated by the huge range of topics each week covering a variety of subjects. It is always a joy to see his handiwork and art display at the end of the day. I know he loves the nursery as he wants to go there even on a Saturday!

Happydays Pre-school Wembley, London
Posted: 14 Apr 2014 by Rakhee Sweeney (Parent)
Happy Days Pre-School is lovely friendly Nursery, the staff are warm and very welcoming, I know my son is in safe hands. I feel as if my child is going from one home to another. It's also very well equipped with a lovely outdoor area with a beautiful big playhouse. My child comes home happy and is always showing me and telling me about the new things he has learnt. At the end of each term we have a one to one with my sons key worker, just so they can discuss his progress and to show us his achievement folder, which I find very informative. Over all I would give Happy Days a 10 out of 10 ranking, lovely safe Nursery. Thank you happy days!

Grasshoppers Day Nursery & Pre School St Albans, Hertfordshire
Posted: 14 Apr 2014 by Lizzy B (Mother of 17 month old daughter)
My daughter loves going to nursery. She started full time at 5 1/2 months and the staff could not have been more caring as she and I made the transition to me going back to work. Her key worker is fantastic and my daughter has blossomed under her care. Each day my daughter does a range of activities and there is always some time outdoors. All the staff are friendly and always have time for you if you have any questions. Every morning my daughter leaps out of my arms when we arrive at nursery, it is just a great place to be!
