I agree. Well Maia loved her first hour in the Arc - ignored mum completely! All great except for a boy that seemed to take an overkeen interest in Maia's hair (ouch!)

Apparantly there will be a private? nursery attached to the Spa gardens flats development when it opens so it might be worth checking this out. The park itself very soon will start it's new under 5's drop in centre though they are waiting for OFSTED to give it the all clear before it can open - Any week/day soon.
Although I don't think baby care is included, Kintore way on Grange Rd, when it reopens after the new build, will be taking children from an earlier age I'm led to believe. My kids all went there and the staff and care was really great

Waterloo nursery, currently on Westminster Bridge Road is about to move to somewhere closer to Borough tube - I understand from friends that it is very good.



Anyone know the latest news on this?

That'll be Bright Horizons at Tabard Square:

Bright Horizons in Tabard Street is a very good nursery. I used it for my three children since they were 8 months and am more than happy. The new premises at Tabard Street are also state of the art.

Thanks for all your suggestions. We'll check out Bright Horizons. Research so far gone really well.

We have three children under 5 and are expecting the fourth. All 3 boys attend Coin St Community Nursery on Upper Ground and love it. They have recently been OFSTED registered to take children from 18 months and from Sept this year, when they move into State of the ark new facilities on Stamford street they will take babies.

All of our boys attended other nurseries until they were old enough for Coin St, Bright Horizons which has relocated to Borough and St Patricks were both fine, Coin St though does feel better to us. It has a real community feel and they have a large outside space which the children have access to all the time, which for us is a huge strength. All the food is cooked on site, often the children help and it is all fresh and homemade.

We would really recommend a look.

Thanks. Coin St sounds wonderful though it might be too far from my daughter's home in Tower Bridge Road.

My children went to St Patricks on Cornwall Road, the Montessori you mention and indeed the standards of care were very good.

However as they are now 8 & 7, they attend the Coin Street Family and Children's Centre nearby on 99A Upper Ground run by Guy Hanscombe. This currently provides day care for children aged 2 upwards but towards the end of 2007, they are moving to a purpose built facility which will provide day care for babies plus their current before and after school facility and a holiday programme. If only there had been a continuous care facility a few years back.

I cannot strongly emphasise enough, the quality of the facilities and dedication of the staff who are always willing to be flexible to the ever changing needs of our children. Suggest you give them a ring - 020 7593 1567.
