My daughter has been going to Daffodils Day Nursery (Norbury Avenue) since she was 11 months old, and she absolutely loves it (She is now 2yrs old) and I couldn't recommend them more highly. As a first time mother, I was very apprehensive about returning to work and the prospect of having to leave my precious little person with strangers, however everyone at Daffodils made this transition easy for me and I cannot thank them enough for this. When viewing nurseries, most of them had set dates and times when you could view (which always made me feel like they could prepare for a visit), but what I loved about Daffodils was that I called in the morning, and was offered the opportunity to visit the same morning. I found Shabnam (the owner, and manager of the Norbury site) very welcoming, and willing to answer all the weird and possibly annoying questions that I had........ and 1 year later she is still as welcoming and friendly every morning (but that also goes for the whole team....)

I don't normally leave reviews for anything, but have made an exception for such an exceptional nursery (and I viewed a lot of nurseries.......)

From my very first viewing of Daffodils in Norbury Avenue I was so impressed. The staff are very professional, knowledgeable, and friendly and give you the 1-2-1 attention, you as a parent expects, when needing reassurance about leaving your little one there.
The building itself is so clean, bright, spacious and well organised and equipped. The nursery layout in particular has been so well thought out for the enjoyment and safety of the children e.g. to allow safe separation for age groups and equally a large room for combining the groups at meals times or for indoor play due to rain. The huge garden with trees, a sensible porch for shade when hot, safe flooring and multitude of activities makes you feel confident, your child is having fun in the fresh air whenever possible. Also parents have a safe large driveway to use for dropping off etc.
My son took his time to settle, each day the staff were always so patient and positive towards him, giving him the extra reassuring cuddles he needed throughout the day, and in turn, made me feel secure that he was being cared for emotionally as well as physically. The staff take the time to give you feedback after each day and discuss development plans and goals.
What has really amazed me is hearing my son sings the songs he has learnt from nursery that day, his eagerness to tell me the new letter he knows of the alphabet or new colour name. All signals that tell me he is having fun whilst learning how to become a confident, sociable and independent little boy. They also worked wonders regarding potty training, a very seamless and quick transition. I cannot fault Daffodils and would highly recommend it.
