Magic Daycare Nursery

Ofsted got it right - Truly Outstanding

My twin b/g have been going to Magic Daycare Whetstone since they were 2 years old.
My main points about Magic are:
Cleanliness - their kitchen is spotless and they have a food hygiene rating of 5 which is well deserved. The keyworkers always have gloves on hand for various activities - serving food, toilet training etc. Basically you see cleanliness in action.
External Provider Activities for kids - there are activities for the kids everyday which include French lessons, Drama vision, Sporty champs etc. Kids are actually learning and not just having only free play.
Communication with kids - the keyworkers communicate a lot with the kids and this is evidenced from the fact that when my twins started, they didn't speak a word of English. After only a year at Magic and going only 3 mornings a week, they had learnt English and after another year going 5 mornings a week, they are both fluent and officially bilingual.
Your child is a name and not a number - your child is known personally, their likes, dislikes, temperament, how they learn etc. The staff communication with parents is exceptional including daily reports, quarterly PTA meetings, parent portal updates etc
Staff are accommodating - during show around, we were told they would try and meet any special requests and they really do. They work with you to meet requests regarding activities you may not want your child to participate in or food you don't want them to eat etc. They fully respect your position as parent and you knowing what is best for your child
Security - biometric thumb scanners for people entering and leaving the nursery.

Magic Daycare Whetstone has being great for us. Sometimes I have to carry the kids out physically because they don't want to leave ?. They have fun, are learning, made friends and absolutely adore the ladies there. I know it sounds like am saying this daycare is perfect, they are not but they are close enough and that's perfect for me!

Friendly, clean and a pleasure!

My son started at Magic when he was around 10 months old. The level of care and attention he was given was second to none. Myself and my wife felt confident leaving him with all the care workers and he truly loved going there. Even to the extent he got so excited to go one day he nearly fell off his chair! I would recommend Magic Whetstone to anyone living in the area and i'm sure the same level of care will continue for years to come.

caring, fun, loving, clean, rounded

Having had a bad experience with a child minder we were extremely fussy and worried about finding a nursery. From walking in we felt a warm, happy atmosphere and staff were very caring with the children. Seven years on and three children through the same nursery, one still there, I feel no different. Without reservation, all the staff are warm, cheerful and wonderful with the children. The older ones are stretched ready for the giant leap to school and the younger ones nurtured...happy children!

Safe, Fun, inclusive, flexible, friendly

My daughter has been at Magic full time since 2008 & I have never had cause for concern. The staff are dedicated & really form bonds with the children. They take time to get to know the parents & have a real understanding of each individual childs' needs. I would recommend Magic to anyone who wants to be able to leave their child in a fun, stimulating, safe environment. It's home from home & we'll both be sad when she leaves for school. Socials with the other parents are good too!

Nursery that feels like home!

A very, very friendly and reliable daycare for all your babies and pre-schoolers.
The nursery and all the staff provide the upmost professional care and love, the kind you expect from your close family and friends.
Very clean and modern premises, cannot fault the nursery at all.
Our daughter is always happy and enjoys her time there during the week(even missing it some weekends)
Glad I went with Magic, the best start for your little ones.
Always a warm and happy atmosphere !!

Wouldn't consider anywhere else

My son was at another local nursery, but having heard about Magic I went for a show round at both their locations and was so impressed with the whole package I moved my son over. I chose Whetstone over Finchley due to the extra little bit of travelling involved. The facilities and staff are great and we use free entitlement during term time which is what we were looking for. I have not had any problems yet, but hope if any issue arise they are dealt with quickly... I'll keep you all posted!

a high standard of daycare

I have used the nursery for both my children since I went back to work in 2007, and in the past 5 years I have had no issues at all with the care provided, and have been extremely happy with the staff at the nursery. Both of my children have been very happy here (one is still there for 3 days a week). The early opening hour of 7.30am has enabled me to commute to my job in central London and work a full day as I did pre-children. Overall a very positive experience.
