Review of Chatterbox House Day Nursery (Bexley) on Tuesday 1 April 2014 by Shelley Brown (Mother of Daughter)

I have found the nursery to be very welcoming. Staff are of varied ages, which I feel is a benefit, as many have experience of raising children and currently have children or grandchildren. All foods are cooked fresh on the premises daily, offering a variety of fruit and veg. My daughter is very understanding of the need to share, play and tidy which is different to being at home with no one to share or always play with. This nursery comes highly recommended.

Review of Chatterbox House Day Nursery (Bexley) on Thursday 6 March 2014 by L K (Mother of three year old son)

My son has additional needs so I was very apprehensive when choosing a nursery. He took a while to settle but he is now so happy. The staff are caring, understanding, and fantastic with my son. He loves the environment and I like the fact that you can go in anytime, no appointment needed, which I found with other settings, gives you peace of mind that you see how everything operates on a normal day.

Review of Chatterbox House Day Nursery (Bexley) on Thursday 20 February 2014 by Alison Hadland (Parents of 2 & 6 year old girls who attend/ed)

My children have attended this nursery full time from the ages of 3 & 6 months and I can only praise the staff for their loving, caring approach to all of our children. The staff turnover is very low so a family feeling has been maintained over the years. The carers are a variety of ages, cultures and genders and there shared experiences allow our daughters to safely explore and learn about family lives which are different to our own.

Review of Chatterbox House Day Nursery (Bexley) on Friday 12 October 2012 by Mummy (Mother)

We have just joined this nursery as moved to the area but I wish to leave my recommendation at this stage as I am very happy with everything. The nursery is clean, cosy, staff members always find a minute to happily chat (with no rush even though it's busy hour) about the day of my child and what he enjoyed the most, his diet, etc. I love the fact they do the Forest School and take kids outside as much as possible. The food is freshly made on site which is a big advantage for the nursery. My boy loves it here and likes to chat of what he has been doing throughout the day. He is happy about the selection of toys too... Hope to keep getting the same care as we have got until now :)

Review of Chatterbox House Day Nursery (Bexley) on Thursday 2 August 2012 by Donna Eaton (Mum)

My daughter has been attending since she was 10 months old. The staff are wonderful and include brilliant male nursery nurses and my daughter has had the same key worker since she started in toddlers at 16 months. The menu has always been very varied and nutritious and the children are involved regularly in preparing their own snacks and cooking from toddler age. The nursery recently introduced forest school which I was thrilled about and as the children's security is paramount to them they have also just introduced biometric finger print entry. My daughter will start school in September and I shall be removing her from chatterbox with a heavy heart but know that she has had an excellent start there. She is my 3rd child and my elder two went to child-minder’s as I didn't want any of my children to be one of many but I wish now they had attended chatterbox as it would have given, particularly one of them, a much better educational start. Thank you to all staff at chatterbox but in particular Megan for allowing me to go to work every day with no worries that my daughter would not be happy or fulfilled with you. Her last day will be a very sad one for both of us.
