Choosing Scotts Wood has been one of the best choices we have ever made, it really is a fantastic place. Right from the settling in visits in the baby room to our 3year old now being in the rainbow room, we often say to one another how thankful we are.
Our son is developing before our eyes into a clever, kind and confident boy which the staff have encouraged and nurtured so much. He also has complicated food allergies which the cook has been fantastic in accommodating.
Kind, caring staff. Great food. Brilliant activities. Happy boy. Happy parents!

My little girl really enjoys her time at Banana Moon Day Nursery. They carry our a wide variety of activities to keep the children stimulated. I like how the nursery is set out and the great outside space. A real selling point is the opening hours, the sensory room and that they get two hot meals a day. I would definitely recommend it.

I would definitely recommend the nursery to others. I am confident that my son receives the highest level of care whilst at Scotts Wood, so I feel totally relaxed whilst I'm at work. When I pick my son up I can see that he has had a lovely day and always has lots to show me like drawings/paintings etc.
The staff are lovely and really seem to care about the children under their care. They have a nice space to play and it's vibrant.

We love the nursery. My little one has been there from 9 months old.
We were both helped with settling in and the ladies are very helpful and friendly. The outdoor space they have is well designed and the food they provide the children is varied and also very good.
Would recommend to anyone.

My little girl has been attending the nursery for a couple of years. She absolutely loves attending. She is met in the morning by the girls who she is always happy to see.
Thanks girls for creating a great environment for my little girl.

I have used the nursery for over four years and feel that they have provided excellent care throughout this time. The staff genuinely care about my children and have been very supportive during difficult times for them (e.g. around the birth of a sibling). In addition to the standard care expected from any nursery, there are a number of extra activities put on, e.g. forest school, swimming lessons, summer trips, nativity and Christmas parties.
They also provide an excellent pre-school education, such that my daughter easily made the transition to school despite being one of the youngest in her class.

A fantastic nursery that truly has your child at the forefront of their minds. The staff are extremely approachable and very friendly, taking time and effort to fill you in on your child's day. The family feel and love that comes across from his nursery makes me know that my child is cared for in a loving environment and is developing, learning and growing whilst we are at work.
The security is extremely good, the fingerprint entry gives reassurance but also promotes an open door policy.
The communication is fabulous, regular emails and information about what is happening at the nursery and what your child's room will be doing for the coming week.
Overall a fantastic nursery that my child loves going to, he constantly talks about the staff and children in a positive way. He is blossoming under their care and through their guidance.

Scotts Wood is a quite simply fantastic nursery. After looking around several nurseries in the area, I'm so pleased that my partner and I choose Scotts Wood. Since joining at 1 year old, my son has developed his interpersonal skills more than I ever could have imagined.
The staff are all very kind and caring and the food is all freshly home cooked. I would not hesitate in recommending Scotts Wood to anyone.

My daughter has been going to this nursery since she was 11 months old, they did excellent settling in visits, really thorough on finding out about my daughter so they knew how best to care for her.
I had never left her with anyone else before and they made the whole process really easy with my mind totally at rest she was in good hands. My daughter is now 2 and loves going to nursery. She transitioned from the baby room up to the toddler room without a hitch and loves the outdoor area they have.
I love getting all the pictures she's done, seeing that they do a wide range of activities and she has come on leaps and bounds confidence-wise with others. I can't remember the last time I picked her up and she hadn't had seconds on dinners so the food must be a winner too.
Highly recommended nursery!

I have been and continue to be very pleased and encouraged by Arnhall Day Nursery's care of both my children. We have experienced the full scope of care on offer at Arnhall, having "gone through the system" in the baby/tweenie/toddler and 3-5 rooms. Overall the standard really has been excellent, and both children continue to gain confidence and flourish under the supervision of the staff. The facilities and support in the 3-5 year room for children preparing to go to school deserve a particular mention - my eldest will go to primary school this August, and both he (and I!) feel very relaxed and supported by the Arnhall staff for this next transition period.

Alison, Admin Manager at Uplands Nursery responded to this review on 21 Feb 2017:

Thank you for your review. It is always nice to hear from happy parents.

A really friendly, lovely nursery.
The best thing about it are the staff who seem to genuinely care about the children and there is a low turnover, so my girls have got to know them all really well. I have three children here the youngest, twins, started just before they turned one and settled incredibly quickly - they haven't cried once at drop off. All the different ages are together - which works well for me as the twins can be with their older sister during the day (if they want).

We are always told about what our daughter has been up to at the end of every day. She always comes home excited to tell us about her day and we feel her character is being nurtured.
Great nursery all round.

Helen Elliott, Owner at Brightsparks Day Nursery, Eltham responded to this review on 21 Feb 2017:

Thanks so much for your review! We are happy to hear that you like our new nursery and we look forward to welcoming you again soon!

Arnhall is a fantastic nursery. The staff are so friendly and welcoming. My son loves going to nursery and loves all the cuddles he gets! I'm so pleased he gets to go outside so much, every day they are out for forest walks or playing in the garden. The staff work so hard to provide a variety of activities for the children, just last week the firemen came for a visit and the children got to sit in the fire engine.
The food provided is also fantastic and varied, all home cooked too.

Scotts Wood is a fantastic nursery and I would recommend them.
Their baby room is lovely and small so the babies get to know their carers quickly. The toddler and rainbow rooms have plenty for them to do, whilst being well looked after by the lovely staff.

My two and a half-year-old daughter has been at Arnhall since she was ten months old and she is so happy there. The staff are friendly and caring, they provide a wide variety of activities that are stimulating and fun, they get out in the fresh air and do plenty of exercise.
They provide a healthy and tasty meal and snacks. Children are moved through the rooms at their own pace meaning that each individual is provided with an experience appropriate to their stage of development and personality. I feel that Arnhall has been key in driving my daughter's development and social skills. I love knowing that this is happening in a safe environment in which her emotional needs are also met.

We have two children at Arnhall. They have been looked after very well from day one. Our boys have several food allergies and the staff have been extremely helpful in preparing and suggesting food for them to eat. The range of activities and learning that goes on is amazing. We are always surprised at how many new things they come home telling us about and the things they have been studying.
