    Firstly, big thanks to all the teachers and staff at the nursery. We have had kids at the nursery since 2017 and we are very happy with the support provided. Our daughter is happy going in and loves her friends and teachers. It has been a stressful year for all but the nursery has done a great job managing that. Our daughter is learning so much, it is pretty remarkable. The play ball, the Spanish songs, the relaxing breathing, playing in the garden, pet snails and chicks are all great but the most important thing is the love and kindness of the staff.

    We are so happy with this nursery, our son has been there for twelve months now after we switched him from another nursery where, among other things, we were frustrated with how little time he was spending outside. Our son loves both indoor and outdoor play, which he now gets a lot of and he gets to take part in many different stimulating and creative activities. The staff are clearly devoted and well-trained to provide our children with a well-balanced and happy early years development experience. We also really appreciate the daily pictures and updates we receive about how his day has gone. He seems to be developing such a wonderful bond with the carers and other children! Communication with and from the management team has been great, especially with regards to health and safety measures during the pandemic. They are a hard-working team, committed to keeping the children and the staff safe.

    2020 has been manageable for us, as a family, thanks to the nursery team. They were great supporting us when our sons were and were not attending the nursery. Most importantly, they’ve never realised how bad the situation was. Thanks to everything the manager and the team have put in place to provide them a safe and “normal” nursery. We realise the sacrifices and risks they have taken to be able to look after our children and we are very grateful for this.

    Our little girl started at the nursery nearly a year ago when she was 12 months old. Like most children, it took her a few days to adapt to the new surroundings and people, but thanks to her key care givers’ attention and care, she’s really fallen in love with Little Gardens. She’s excited to go in every morning and comes home each afternoon eager to relate her day to us (never mind that the language she uses is her own!). As parents, we really appreciate the app that allows us to read about her daily activities, skills development, and even her daily eating/sleeping/nappy habits! The team is so caring and their creativity with the children has no boundaries; yoga, Spanish classes, sign language, etc. The team at LG has been wonderfully responsive and accommodating, which has certainly been welcome during this year of lockdowns. I’m happy to give a wonderfully positive review and have recommended this nursery to every parent in search of one.

    My son enjoys going to the nursery. He started during Covid but he settled in fine and the carers were great at giving us updates on his progress each day, and the communication and photos through the app give us reassurance that he’s having a good time. The children spend a good portion of time outside every day (weather permitting) and there’s a varied course of activities including Spanish lessons, yoga and sign language.
    I’d be happy to recommend this nursery.

    Our son attended this nursery from November 2018 to August 2021 and it has been a really good experience. The staff have always been nice to all of us, doing their best to help us with any issue that could occur. The place is really clean, the food sounded delicious – and according to our son it was, the songs, games and activities carried out were perfect for the correct development of our son’s skills and certain members of the staff even became our friends. Our son really liked them and was happy to go there every day to see his friends and play with them along with his carers.
    I would definitely recommend this nursery to anyone. Your child will be in good hands at this nursery, no doubt.

    Our son started at exactly one-year-old and during Covid. Although the transition was a bit more difficult for us than for him since parents were not allowed inside, our son settled in very well and they made sure to keep us updated about progress and what we could do to ease him in.
    He loves his teachers and comes home very happy every day. The staff do a great job teaching important skills, sticking to the government guidelines and our son has learned so many new things while attending (including yoga!).
    We are constantly impressed by his meal selection and love that they give so many nutritious options.
    The nursery does a great job updating us and we absolutely love the app which provides daily updates and photographs on our son’s activities, eating, etc. We would highly recommend the nursery!

    Amazing nursery where my children are learning a lot and doing a lot of activities.
    The team is great and loves the children. The outside area is a plus since I know they go out every day to enjoy the fresh air.

    My son has been attending this nursery since he was 10 months old and he is now 3 and a half years old. He is very happy there and so excited to go in every day. He is very fond of the staff who all come across very caring and lovely. Good activities every day which are shared with parents through an app with pictures, this has been a godsend during the pandemic where we are unable to enter due to health and safety. Keep up the good work Hammersmith Day Nursery.

    My daughter started in September 2021, we hadn’t been into the nursery to visit because of COVID and had just signed her up on a recommendation. I am a nursery teacher myself (potentially a tough client!) and we couldn’t be happier with how she has settled in, the activities and opportunities she has, the friendly staff and the garden time. Since her first day (11 months old) she has always been happy going in and coming out of Nursery. She loves the food too!

    We have had two daughters at The Hammersmith Nursery, both of whom have flourished within it. The activities are varied and stimulating, we get a lot of detail on their progress and daily activities and they have a wonderful bond with the nursery staff. Compared to other nurseries, staff turnover is noticeably lower and there is a very stable management. Furthermore, the management has gone to some lengths to provide male members of staff, which is very important. The team is dedicated and manage and respond to feedback well. The nursery’s relatively long opening hours (0730 – 1830) are a real help for working parents. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend The Hammersmith Nursery.

    My youngest son has been going to the Hammersmith nursery since November 2021. He started at three months old, so very little still, but I knew he was in good hands. First and for all because his older brother also started there and he was always very happy there. The little one was received with lots of affection and the staff absolutely really care, that is what I like most. The children are all individually very important to them and that is very comforting. Also, the premises, the activities and the menus are top level. I thank them very much for everything they do for my two boys.

    Our son has been with The Hammersmith Day Nursery & Pre-School since August 2020 and we have seen him flourish since that time. He has transitioned into the pre-school room and we have been so impressed with the level of care, activities and learning he is receiving. They are doing an excellent job of preparing him for primary school as well as boosting his confidence and independence to take on this new milestone. We’re always impressed with the diversity of the activities they do each day and get a full report on his actions via the app which is so useful. The staff are also excellent at encouraging his eating (we struggle with that at home!) and are grateful for their support in this area. Most of all, we love the staff who clearly love and care for him and all the other children so much, and you can’t really ask for more than that. We will be sorry to leave!

    We have been with the nursery for over a year and it’s been such a wonderful experience for our little one, as well as the parents. The nursery has a perfect balance of education through play and our toddler is thriving. She has love and support from the nursery team to grow both emotionally and intellectually. She can’t wait to leave the house every morning to go to “school”! Our second child will be attending the nursery as well, once they’re old enough. We can’t recommend the team at Hammersmith Day Nursery enough.

    My son has attended Little Gardens since he was just shy of a year old and will leave later this year as he starts Reception at 4.5.
    I can’t describe how great the care for him has been at this nursery/pre-school. Not only is it well run and organised, it is obvious that every single person who works there cares deeply about the well-being and development of my child. It’s been a true partnership and I will miss it in the autumn. My son has been cared for, loved, hugged, offered well-balanced and nutritious food, learnt things, had his creativity and imagination stimulated and learned great manners (much better than I could have done on my own!). The nursery has also managed difference beautifully; my son is donor conceived and I’ve been included in Father’s Day celebrations, they’ve taken the time to talk about families etc. Couldn’t recommend Little Gardens highly enough. Huge thank you from a grateful parent.

    Our son has been attending the nursery for over 3 years now and he is so happy there. All the lovely staff were part of our son’s development and 1st stage in life and helped prepare him for school through creative and educational activities. All of the staff are so nurturing and supportive and they provide him with so much care, attention and positivity. Our son has always been happy when arriving at the nursery in the morning and when picked up in the afternoon. He has learned a lot and developed from a baby to a young, polite and confident boy. In summary, we are pleased to highly recommend the nursery and believe it has provided the perfect foundation for him to continue his journey in life. A big thank you to all the team, we will never forget you!

    I’m very happy with this nursery: my son attended since he was 9 months old and the attention is fantastic. All carers are dedicated and willing to improve, listening to our comments and implementing changes to make all parties feel at home. It’s a clean space and the atmosphere of children and parents is very positive and healthy.
    I would recommend this nursery to those living in the area.

    Our 2 year old daughter has been doing great at this nursery since she was 1 year old. She has established very nice relationships with her key workers and I have never had any concerns about the care she is receiving and have felt comfortable leaving her in the hands of her carers. She has developed greatly in many respects due to the activities and support she is receiving at the nursery.

    Our son arrived at the nursery in November 2021, not speaking a word of English. The staff has been very careful to ensure he can play with other kids and helped him to learn and express himself. He is now in his element only after few months and is growing up so fast! The staff are not only caring, they have a lot of affection for all the kids. Thank you.

    At the Hammersmith Day Nursery, our son has fun and engages in activities that are always different and stimulating. It offers the right balance between encouraging him to participate into new and diverse activities and letting him play and enjoy his favourite past times (cars and trains!), as well as between individual and group time. Children also get to spend regular time outdoors and once a week do physical exercise (playball), although everyone’s favourite is Spanish with songs and a guitar. Staff is caring and attentive, the atmosphere always welcoming. Children are encouraged (but not forced) to become more independent, for example at the table during meals. Finally, it’s nice to read the daily reports, especially when you can tell they are customised for your child.
