Outstanding nursery

This nursery has undergone a change of management and I believe ownership) and the current team is fabulous. They have just been rated outstanding. My little one has been there almost a year and I can not praise them enough. I would very much reccomend them to anyone.

Very disappointing experience

We sent our two children here for a total of two years. The staff are generally very good but we had a very bad experience with the management (which is one reason why I have given "care and staff" a one star rating - I think the bad management trumps the good staff. The other reason is the safety issue below which I think reflects on quality of care).

Specifically we raised several times a safety concern, about a low wall in the play area, which the management did not address. Instead there was an increasingly contentious correspondence and - suddenly - an email from the nursery at 11pm expelling our children and telling us not to bring them in the morning.

The issue was subsequently addressed by Ofsted, following a complaint from us and other parents. They made an unannounced inspection, found a number of safety and other issues (including the wall issue we had raised in the first place) and issued a "notice to improve" which can be found at http://ofsted.gov.uk/provider/files/2417967/urn/EY481057.pdf (it is also linked from the bottom of the nursery's page on the Ofsted site at http://ofsted.gov.uk/inspection-reports/find-inspection-report/provider/CARE/EY481057

It has also been covered by the Hackney Gazette, on their front page on 31st July 2014.

Lovely nursery

I\'m such a fan of this nursery. I looked around so many before settling on this one, and i was taken with it straight away. I particularly like the layout - all the rooms flow into each other which enables the children to interact with each other easily. It\'s also really nicely decorated, you can tell a lot of thought has gone into each room. I love the fact it\'s all open plan and the changing tables are in the open.

One of the first things I noticed was how the staff talk to the older children, making them understand why one of the other kids was crying, and how they could make them feel better.

Outside space was a must when I was choosing a nursery, as was a good healthy menu, and this also ticks those boxes. Overall really recommend it, and my little boy is very happy here.
