    We are extremely happy with Homefields and importantly our son is also very happy there. The nursery and staff are full of joy and we have every confidence that our son’s development in every aspect is in excellent hands. The outside space is incredible (especially for London). I often have to ask for adhoc extra sessions due to freelance and unpredictable work and their accommodation of this has been amazing. We feel very lucky to have found this nursery and love seeing how our son is growing, maturing and learning from his time there.

    My kids love their nursery. We are so happy that they get to spend their days surrounded by love and fun activities. It is like a second home for them.

    We love Buttercups Homefields. The staff are lovely with the children and really care. My daughter has come on so much since starting there, I’m often shocked at the things she knows and has learned.

    We find Buttercups at Homefields to be a friendly and welcoming environment. The children are nurtured, engaged in fun and stimulating activities and they have an excellent outdoor space and garden for the children to explore and develop their personal growth. Our son joined this nursery last month. He had a gradual settling in period over two weeks where the staff supported us through this transition. We are delighted to see our son happy and thriving and so wonderfully cared for by all the staff here.

    The Buttercups at Chiswick Lane nursery is truly one-of-a-kind and something you don’t find often in London. Large outdoor space, a forest school, lots of creative Montessori activities and – most importantly – incredible teachers. Our son looks forward to the nursery every day, he is inspired by all the activities and loves the nurturing nursery environment. I would highly recommend it if you’re considering Buttercups for your child.

    This Forest School is just amazing! All the staff are extremely professional and kind with the kids. The children are looking so happy they are never bored as the variety of activities keeps them engaged. They have lots of outdoor activities and outdoor learning, they make lots of fun things that they bring home especially some colourings. It is wonderful to see the little ones spend their days playing in the woods and hunting for minibeasts just what they should do at their age.

    We have been very happy with this lovely nursery for several years now – our son went there first and now our daughter (who is 3). They have a Montessori room with lots of stimulating activities for the pre-schoolers and a lovely big room for the younger ones to learn and play. The garden is fantastic: a huge outdoor space (especially for London), with a covered part so the children can still get fresh air when it rains, and the amazing Forest School facility. Both of our children love being outside so this was a huge draw for us. The biggest attraction, however, is the staff. They are kind, caring, knowledgeable, creative and fun and even though both of ours were a little reluctant at the beginning, they handled the transition (and a worried mummy!) with confidence and kindness. It wasn’t long at all before they both loved it! And they have done a brilliant job during the pandemic – remaining positive and providing the children with a safe and happy space. I would highly recommend!

    Our daughter has attended Buttercups Nursery since she was one. We could not be happier with the dedication and care they have provided. The staff are attentive, caring, respectful and great fun. Buttercups and Homefields has a great outdoor extension used for forest school activities which is fantastic for energetic toddlers.

    Buttercups at Chiswick Lane is an incredible place. The emphasis on Montessori activities and outside learning sets it apart from other nurseries in the area. The teachers are committed to the children and in turn, the children love being there. The nurturing and supportive environment helps the children flourish.

    Buttercups at Homefields is an excellent nursery experience combining top class learning and social environment with a brilliant outdoor space. The curriculum and attention to the children is excellent, and this is clear in how happy our daughter is but also how well rounded she has become during her time. The staff are very friendly and considered, really taking the time to get to know the children as well as going the extra distance to provide thorough feedback to the parents each day. I would highly recommend this Forest School.

    Buttercups at Chiswick Lane is an incredible place where children spend part of the day doing Montessori activities and the other part playing outdoors in the garden or activities in the forest school. The staff are kind and nurturing, placing emphasis on the well being of the children. Our daughter is very happy and has spent 4 years with the Buttercups Nursery group with over 2 years in this particular setting. I would highly recommend the forest school setting to any parents that would like to learn in the natural environment/woodland setting.

    I love Buttercups, Chiswick Lane. The staff are the most nurturing, caring and fun that I have come across – and I have three children who have attended 4 different nurseries. The setting is also lovely, with a big outdoor space.

    The staff at Buttercups are absolutely amazing. They have been so caring and have really nourished his curiosity. The balance of forest school and Montessori, delivered by specially trained staff has given my son such confidence and has enabled him to become independent as well as igniting the path of ‘follow your curiosity’. The team is so attentive and well-informed. The outdoor space and chickens are an added bonus.

    I absolutely love this nursery. My child’s confidence has grown exponentially since attending. She loves the staff, and they love her. Both learning outside and inside skills, have left my child with such an amazing curiosity about the world. Couldn’t have been happier!

    Amazing nursery Buttercups, Chiswick Lane. After visiting many of the nurseries in the area we loved this one and that has been the case for the last year and a half. Great and loving staff. They get to know each kid on a personal level and build a strong relationship with them. You can see this when dropping or picking up the kids that they all have a special bond. Staff is always available for additional support and a chat on the kid’s development and progress. They have a mix of Montessori and Forrest school methods with a large outdoor area for the kids to play and learn.

    Buttercups Nursery on Chiswick Lane is absolutely wonderful. My daughter is so happy to go every morning and when I pick her up she is beaming from the day that she’s had. The teachers are creative, kind, thoughtful and loving. The environment is also excellent, with a lovely indoor space with lots of toys and engaging activities and an immense garden with a fenced-in forest for the kids to explore. We feel very lucky that our daughter is able to spend her days with Buttercups.

    The staff have been great and my child has enjoyed his time at the nursery. He comes back singing the songs he’s learned and talking about all of the interesting facts he’s been taught. He has enjoyed playing inside and out and made friends. The staff has been accommodating and helpful in every way.

    Our daughter has been Buttercups for about 6 months now (since she was 2 years) and absolutely loves it there. The staff are wonderful, providing a caring, safe and supportive environment to take advantage of the fantastic outside space and Montessori-based activities. We have been so impressed by the effort made to organise Christmas/Burns Night/Halloween/Easter activities for the kids which parents can come along to also. We’ve recommended Buttercups to quite a few friends and feel so lucky to have found it.

    Buttercups at Chiswick Lane is a great place for children to get a good balance of indoor and outdoor experiences. The staff have been caring and fully engaged in helping our little one discover and develop new physical and mental skills. I’ve also appreciated the effort they’ve made to teach good behaviour and help little ones develop their social skills. It’s a wonderful place all around!

    Our son has been at Buttercups for just over a year. He loves the nursery and has been so happy there. The staff are wonderful and caring, and our son has developed hugely during his time at Buttercups.
