    Both my daughters attend Building Blocks Childcare Teddington. Through the continued care and commitment from their staff, many of which are long standing, they have flourished and are confident learners. Two home cooked meals is a great support, along with the recipes we follow at home too and a big range of extra curricular activities such as forest school and swimming are weekly favourites. Web cameras provide a reassurance and connection if we wanted and for grandparents too. Highly recommend.

    My two children are currently attending Building Blocks Childcare Teddington and they both love it. The settling in process is thorough and the staff and team really make you feel at ease and confident in leaving your baby with them, they really take the time to get to know your child. The activities my children take part in daily are enriching and exciting and my four year old doesn’t stop talking about what he’s learnt! Building Blocks Childcare Teddington also offer a range of extra curricular activities, such as forest school and swimming, which is a huge bonus. It’s very clear to see how much they are both benefiting from their time here. The staff are all extremely skilled, knowledgeable and caring with a clear passion for early years education.

    My daughter attended full-time from 2yrs to school age and my son is currently in the pre-school room having been there since the age of 10months. What makes my children happy to go to Building Blocks Teddington day after day are the fun and nurturing staff. They make huge efforts to create stimulating activities and put a lot of thought into the environment. Before the pandemic the children had regular trips for ‘forest school’, swimming or just a walk to the garden centre/local train station etc which I really valued. Weekly menus have always impressed me and the kids really enjoy the food. It’s well managed from the office admin side too. Where I’ve wanted key carers to pay particular attention to something they have been very supportive. The outside space isn’t as big as I would like but they co-ordinate and rotate well amongst the rooms to make it work well. Building Blocks has been a great start for my kids, thank you.

    My daughter always has a wonderful time at Building Blocks Childcare Teddington and even though she’s only currently attending once a week, she always asks if she can go more often! The staff are very kind and thoughtful, I’m always impressed at all the activities they provide and it seems a genuinely lovely environment where my daughter’s confidence has really grown.

    My daughter began preschool in January 2021 and due to lockdown, had been in contact with very few children. However the carers at Buildong Blocks Childcare Teddington ensured that she was eased into her new surroundings gradually and made to feel welcome. Academically, not only has her vocabulary come on staggeringly but she’s making so much more effort to express her needs and feelings every day. We can also see a massive improvement in her confidence and the way she interacts with her brother at home, which is very clearly a direct reflection of the encouragement to engage with others at nursery. Her enthusiasm to learn grows more each week and it’s just been an all round pleasure to observe. We’re so grateful for the effort and dedication that’s put in and my daughter adores all of the staff. Thank you so much, Building Blocks Childcare Teddington.

    My son has attended the nursery for 5 months, since he was 11 months old. We had a very thorough settling in period and the staff went to great efforts to make both my son and I comfortable in difficult circumstances given that it was during a lockdown. Since attending the setting he has flourished into a confident and happy boy. We really value the great efforts the staff go to to ensure that the days are varied and stimulating, from swimming to baby ballet to walks in nearby parks. I also appreciate the regular feedback and input on what he is working on/enjoying.

    My daughter loves the staff at Building Blocks Nursery. They are very loving, caring and gentle with my daughter. Helpful, understanding and willing to assist in every way they can. I gladly recommend this nursery to anyone. I just want to express my gratitude to the staff.

    Amazing, kind, beautiful, loving staff. Made me and my child at ease every day, always there for anything. Extra resources were brought in for my disabled child, whatever he needed. My son has really improved and progressed massively within the 2 years he has been there.

    Both our sons were cared for by Building Blocks Childcare since 2016. Our youngest just finished this summer as they will be going to the same school. We have nothing but a positive experience with the nursery and it will sadly be missed. Many of their peers are moving onwards to the same schools which gives them a nice transition to their next journey with the foundations set so well by Building Blocks Childcare.

    After-school club only:
    They left my autistic 8yr old at school because they missed him off their register.
    I had to leave the office to collect my child.
    They graciously refunded the fees for that day and “apologised for any misunderstanding and inconvenience caused”.
    Disgraceful! Does anyone know if there was a breach of care here?
