hi im relocating to west london and have begun to look at nurseries for my dt:0.4 i have looked at a fair few now in ealing/chiswick/twickenham and have rounded the ones i like down but would appreciate any ones thoughts on the following nurseries:buttercups(chiswick x2 and ealing), bright beginnings(twick).little acorns(w5), i play and learn(w13),blue girafee(w3). i know the area varies widey but am unsure where we will be located and travelling to the best one is fine, am also due to look at giggles(isleworth)soon so any views on that appreciated. If anyone wishes to email me then can as i appreciate not everyone likes to post on a public forum, dont want a nanny/childminder as been there and done that allready. Thanks for reading

I don't know any of those you mentioned but you might find comments on the Ealing local forum.

Have PM'd you already about one of the above but I also know people who have sent their babies to Devonshire Rd nursery in Chiswick and been pleased with it(sorry - know it's not on your list!)

Hi, just saw this one. My DD has been going to Blue Giraffe since she was 9m (she's 2 yrs now), and I'm really happy with it. It's small, so all the staff in all the rooms know every single child, and there's enough interaction amongst all the staff and children that I think moving up rooms (from baby to toddler to preschool) is a much easier transition than in some of the bigger nurseries (especially the ones that have interim rooms between baby & toddler - meaning the kids move rooms twice in one year).

More importantly, my DD loves it there.

The outdoor space isn't extensive, but when the weather is decent, the children are often taken to local parks with playgrounds.

I have friends using Devonshire Road nursery too, and they like it.

Oh, obviously staff are lovely and friendly and caring - didn't think to mention that before as I assume all nursery staff everywhere are - but maybe not the case? Food also good, meals cooked fresh on premises.
