...Just round the corner from my workplace, so am seriously considering sending dd3 there - two of my staff have their children there and I'm going to visit Monday. Anyone have any knowledge of it?

I have a friend who uses it.

We haven't discussed it recently. When we last spoke about it (at Christmas) they had just had a fairly dodgy Ofsted report. Friend was worried about this but didn't necessarily relate it to the experience she felt she had with them.

Yes, I read the ofsted and was a bit concerned but the girls at work are very enthusiastic about it - there is a french session every week which was quite appealing..

I checked it out some time ago ( but ended up not using it) I don't know if it is still the same but the food they proposed offering was a bit worrying and all cooked centrally someplace and shipped in. I thought - at the time I saw it - a couple of years ago so it amy be vastly improved now that it could do with a good clean ...sorry

They cook their own food on the premises now, so hopefully that's improved! Anyway, I'll have a good nose look round!

I think the Ofsted inspector caught them when they had a lot of temps in.

Wonder if you work with my friend? smile

Hey Coolma, the person I suggested for you works there- she would prob give you a very honest opinion if you wanted it! French is good- there are a lot of french speaking families in Cambridge.

oooh, that's handy to know - I'll email her tonight!

:-) Hopefully you'll get the review you are hoping for. Belive she is generally in the baby rooms but sure she could give you an overall opinion.
