I'm surprised by your experience with Bright Horizons, JGarcia. I find they do lots of early years education. They do everything from sand and water play to trips to the museum and the park. They cook, even with the babies and do artwork and music more than once a week. There is an individual learning plan for every baby and a one to one parent meeting every month in addition to a lot of communication every day. Staff are loving and have a very personal relationship with every child, staff turnover is low. Admittedly, it costs an arm and a leg, but other than that I couldn't be happier.
I am a full time working mum to a 3 year old. She is attending a newly opened nursery in Law Street, SE1 (near to both London Bridge Station and Borough). The nursery takes 2-5 year olds and it is called Leo's Den.
It is quite simply a wonderful nursery with lovely caring staff and a clean and spacious environment for the children. It has a lovely garden complete with safety flooring. It has different play activity zones and wonderful food! My daughter has thrived since going there so I am very happy too!
