I live very close to Borough Station and I was wondering what nurseries there are around here or in a walk distance from here. Could anyone help me, please? and if they have website, that would be fantastic.
Taking a guess, Lorenika may want ideas and recommendations from members of the Forum. My experience, albeit some time ago, was that the quality of local nurseries varied widely. As did prices. Without there being an obvious correlation between the two.
I actually tried to find a previous forum discussion about nurseries but for some reason nothing came out. Sorry, I´m new to this forum and I may not have done the search properly, so it´s probably my fault...
Anyway, thanks a lot for replying. I´ll have a look into the ones you told me.
We have our daughter at Bright Horizons in Tabard Street. I think it is wonderful, lovely staff, low staff turnover, food cooked freshly on the day, lots of extra activities (french, cooking...) and day trips. She started at 7 months old, but they take babies as young as 3 months old.
We had bad experiences of Bright Horizons, posted on this forum before I think. It's a commercial enterprise and the staff were a mixed bag (some young girls who only semed to be in childcare cos they had no better carrer it seemed). There wasn't the same level of love and care I've seen at other nurseries (Arc, Kintore Way etc.). Some people love it, but we didn't. It's also extremely expensive. If you join the Borough Babies Yahoo group you'll get lots of opinion of BH - some good, lots not good.
We went to BH and found it too clinical, but that was just after it opened, so it may have improved. Arc has a fantastic attitude and is overseen by a Parent's Trust which guarantees that the children's welfare always comes first. But don't take my word for it- go and have a look around.
