I am new to the forum and I'll appreciate any input: we're deciding between these two nurseries, Lavendale Montessori and Mace Montessori in Finchley. We've been to see them but I can't find any reviews from parents who have or had their children in one of the two. We need to decide soon!! Please help smile

Thank you!!

Not sure if this is too late, but my son goes to Lavendale and has been there for the past two years. I love it, and more importantly so does my son.
They are great at dealing with children with allergies and work with you to ensure they are not excluded from activities because of their allergies. My son will be one of the youngest in the year once he starts school, but Lavendale have been great at getting him to progress on phonics, pencil control, first steps for reading and maths.
There are things that could be better e.g. variety of tea time meals, but overall I would recommend it

I am not sure if OP still looking for an answer, but my LO went to Lavendale couple of years ago. They were great and taught a lot of practical things that helped my LO to be independent. If I had to put my toddler to nursery now, I wouldn't look elsewhere. Hope that helps xx
