    My son has been at Next Generation for over a year now and started when he was less than a year old. He loves the place and all the staff members. The staff are very warm, and welcome and do an amazing job at taking care of the kids and keeping us informed (regular updates through the day, activities done, etc).
    I would highly recommend Next Generation to any parent looking for a nursery.
    I left a review last year with 4 stars for outdoor space as that seemed smaller at the beginning but it definitely is a 5-star nursery and they do an amazing job even with smaller outdoor space by planning the day so kids get enough outdoor time.

    My youngest currently attends the nursery and my older eldest used to go. The overall experience has been great for both and I would have no hesitation in recommending them. Both children have benefited and developed during their time there and enjoyed/enjoy going. Everyone is really friendly and you can see they really care about the children which is the most important thing.

    Our daughter has been going to the nursery for about eight months now. The team took the time to get to know what she liked and didn’t like, so we felt comfortable right from the start (even though it was a big change for all of us). I love the fact that our daughter sees the same three or four members of staff each week when she goes, and it’s great having the app so we can see how she’s eating/sleeping and see photos of the group activities too.

    I will always have a special place in my heart for this nursery. I was extremely distressed when I booked a place for my less than a year old son due to an unpleasant experience with his childminder at that time. The manager called me, patiently listened to my anxious concerns and said and done all the right things that I needed to hear. My son is now 2 years and 7 months old and I cannot thank them enough for giving my child the best experience and making his childhood magical. I am working full time and doing really great with my career knowing my child is in safe hands. He is learning so much and enjoys every bit of it. All the girls are superstars. Thank you so much again for what you do for him. Well done team!

    My daughter has been going to this nursery since September and has thoroughly enjoyed her experience here. The staff are amazing and attentive. They plan well and engage with the children. They have a lovely outdoor area that is used often. Highly recommend

    My daughter has been in the baby room for over a year and we absolutely love it. She is really happy in there, has developed so much and the staff are amazing. We are updated regularly with progress and daily pictures. I would recommend this nursery to anyone. Also, the food menu is varied and she seems to enjoy it.

    Following in our oldest daughter’s footsteps, the younger daughter also started nursery at the age of 18 months. She has been enjoying the time, and we have noticed her grow in all areas. The staff working with children are amazing, and not forgetting the admin and management who have helped and guided all our needs throughout our time.

    My son has been attending Next Generation Day Nursery (Barnehurst) for 7 months now and absolutely adores it. The room leaders and nursery assistants really take the time to get to know the children and their interests as well as cheer on their achievements. The settling-in period was at a good pace and really allowed my son to feel happy there before he started full-time. I love having the app because we can see what our kids are getting up to during the day and the friendships they are forming as well as an excellent communication tool for parents.
    I’ve noticed huge leaps in development since my son started from his writing and drawing, language skills and even helping to encourage him with trying some new foods. He loves his days there so much he even tells me he wants to go to nursery on the weekends!
    I can’t thank the staff enough for making it such an easy transition for him.

    My daughter has attended the nursery since she was 11 months old and now 3.5 years old. She is so happy attending and has learnt so much in her time there.
    The staff are all so friendly and I’ve never got any concerns.

    Our daughter started at Next Generation Day Nursery in November 2019, since being reintroduced post covid, she has thrived. The nursery makes effective use of indoor/outdoor space and have all facilities needed, the staff are always keeping their space fun, entertaining and full of imagination. They work extremely hard to support the children in their key development. The nursery offers activities such as football, phonics and sensory. Food menus are updated and offer a good variety for all diets. Cleanliness has been maintained post covid and safeguarding is effective. I can’t thank the manager and staff enough for supporting, understanding and helping my daughter through her early years. I already feel she will have the best start to school this September.

    The warmest, most professional place and we have seen real results with our little one developing her social and language skills particularly well. Other technical skills have moved on leaps and bounds too, we simply would not have got where we are on our own. Love the work you are all doing, top level!

    My little girl started here in October, she went into the baby room at 9 months old. It is an amazing nursery, the staff are lovely and really care about the children! I would definitely recommend to other parents and carers!

    My daughter now loves going to Nursery thanks to the very friendly staff at Next Generation Day Nursery. My daughter now even puts her arms out to get to the staff as we drop her off! Couldn’t recommend enough. Thanks.

    Absolutely fantastic nursery with amazing staff and management. Always doing anything they can to help with anything at all. They are so caring and friendly and teach the children so well in every aspect. I have my second child now at the nursery and highly recommend them. Both mine had severe allergies and the care and checking involved is amazing.

    Very happy with my experience with Next Generation Day Nursery and would highly recommend. 
    My son joined at 8 months old and has been there for over a year and is thriving.
    I had to send my son to nursery earlier than I had intended due to a work circumstance and felt very stressed about the whole situation but dealing with all the members of the team and settling him into the nursery made the experience so much better. Such a relief!
    It feels very much like a family environment and they keep us well informed with various updates on activities and progression. 
    The entire team is friendly, engaging, upbeat and more than anything caring which is such a comfort when you know they are spending a lot of time at nursery.
    Thanks to all the Next Generation Day Nursery team!

    My child has loved attending this nursery. They always have different activities set up each day looking at different skills, books or interests of the children. The staff listen and takes on board things that the children tell them they want to do, which is really great as it keeps them engaged. My child especially enjoys the outside space and free-flow area and the staff ensures there is time spent outside every day, even if it’s raining.
    The meals provided offer a great range of flavours and different foods so the children are exposed to lots of different types of food from around the world.
    The staff are welcoming and really get to know the children well.

    An absolutely fantastic nursery and I’m happy with the care that my children receive there. Wonderful staff who are kind and knowledgeable. The staff are also very supportive when it comes to things like diet/eating and toilet training. Lovely activities for the children to do. Good communication between nursery and home.

    My son has been at the nursery for nearly a year now and I couldn’t be happier. He found it difficult to settle at first, which was very difficult, but the staff were so caring and supportive and offered additional sessions to help. Now he loves it! There are different activities every day and this has really helped with his development. I feel the staff in the baby room really care for him and he feels safe and happy with them. A big thanks to the ladies who are all amazing!

    My daughter has progressed so much since being here. Would recommend it to anyone. Excellent nursery.
