Nurseries Guildford- positive steps vs Drayton house plus Guildford high(2 Posts)
We're currently at Fitzsimmons but are having to change nurseries as they can't accomadate the new days we need. A shame since we're quite happy there although like with all nurseries there are a few things we don't like.
We need somewhere quite close to lanesbourough where ds is going to make drop off easier and have narrowed it down to positive steps and Drayton house.
Just wanted some reviews of what people think of them.
We like both but for different reasons. Positive steps very clean, new manager seems very good and trying to bring new initiatives to the rooms. But does feel a bit soulless and the staff quite young. Drayton house on the other hand has more of a personal touch but we worry of it's too structured and whether especially in the older rooms if they are too small to have much free play. However dd will only be going 2 days a week so will have lots of other time for free play, toddler groups, outdoor activities etc. also a bit worried about a comment made here that Guildford High had mixed things to say about Drayton house as that is where we'd want to try and send dd once she reached the right age.
Have cross posted in education as thought might catch some of the Guildford high mums who might have heard something.
