How Likely are the Reviewers to Recommend Daffodils Day Nursery Norbury Avenue?
Reviewer Connection to Daffodils Day Nursery Norbury Avenue
Recommendation submitted from a Website Submission by S.Russell (Mother of Child) on Tuesday 23 June 2015. Recommendation relates to June 2015.
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.......)
