wish you luck - we are registered but not a sound as yet - but we have a fab nanny at present and am possibly looking for a nanny share in the hope our DD might have a place by her first birthday in August!
We went with Active Learning in West Hampstead (its on Compayne Gardens). Very happy with the place. They've got a new principal who seems to be quite switched on so hopefully admission and realted admin issues will be smoother. good luck!
I am looking at nurseries in and around South Hampstead / Swiss Cottage / St. Johns Wood for my little girl for when I go back to work in May. She is currently on the waitlist for Active Learning in West Hampstead, but a friend of mine whose baby was also on the waitlist for last month did not get in - they were full up (though she had registered her baby almost 8 months earlier) - it was most stressful for her! So I am now concerned that we may face a similar situation as Active Learning does not confirm until the month before and I am therefore looking at other nursery options in and around South Hampstead. I've seen the thread on Teddies - depressing. Anyone heard of Bright Horizons in St Johns Wood? Any other recommendations in the area? Thanks!!
