Ok with babies, average when they get older. We moved our to Blueberry on recommendation - it was like a different world.Check out Blueberry Nursery round the corner - AMAZING nursery. If there's a waiting list go on it, it moves quickly. Fabulous well qualified staff, ( ex teachers, experienced child care workers, graduates) all older so no unqualified nursery juniors, brilliant setting, all food homemade in their kitchen, mostly organic. Very social for parents too. progressive and inclusive. Particularly great for kids with parents from outside UK and LGBT families. Our DC's have made life long friends there as did we plus the children mostly move to Stanford Infants & Brunswick schools so they have friends already when they go to school.

We have a 3 yr old there and are happy with it. We chose it mostly because of the extended hours, as we both have long commutes so some days have to do early drop offs/late pick ups. We also liked it because it's spacious, clean and has a big garden. We also looked at Blueberry, it wasn't an option for us because of the waiting list, but also the rooms felt quite cramped and dark to me and I genuinely preferred the setting at YS. But blueberry gets really great feedback so must have just been me!
Basically, both are really good I think!

Both of my sons went there. The eldest from 18 months to 4 and the youngest for about a year from six months until we moved abroad for a few years. I was very happy with it. This was a good few years ago though, my eldest is now 12!
