My experience with Magic roundabout nursery in Stockwell has been fantastic. From the moment I walked I felt it to be a comfortable and welcoming environment. Most importantly my children felt at home. The Staff at MRN do their utmost to ensure the children are happy, safe and stimulated with a wide variety of activities. The facilities at MRN are second to none, all class rooms are spacious with big windows for natural light (windows from the bottom to middle are covered with coloured plastic for privacy). MRN have the biggest hall in a nursery I have ever seen! The children really enjoy playing there, nursery staff lay out different activities every day. The hall is also used for plays which the children and staff put on throughout the year. If you are looking for child care in the Stockwell area MRN is certainly a nursery to view. Staff and management are always happy to help. I have been using MRN now for 5 ½ years (I have 2 children). Would I recommend MRN to other mums/dads - ABSOLUTLY.
My little one went to MRN for about 6 months - he started when he was 9 months. The nursery was ok but they have lots of foreign staff and I think they did not speak to the babies in English. Fir us this was a bit of a problem as we are trying to teach 3 languages to our DS and did not want him learning Polish as well...
I went and looked at it when I was looking around for nurseries. It's quite a big nursery with lots of activity going on. The children all looked happy and like they were having a fun time and the staff seemed nice. I didn't choose it as I felt it was just too big. Also, I didn't like how there are big windows on the street in which anyone can see inside while the kids played. Some of my friends have put their children in St. Michael's and they all love it. Also, I have a friend with a child at the Asquith Nursery which she likes. I'm looking around right now for nurseries for my 2 year old, so I'm going to be keeping an eye on this thread!
