Having a bit of a panic as due to go back to work at end of the year and finding there aren't really many nurseries in the area and those that are e.g. Teddies have massively long waiting lists. Should I give up and start looking at childminders instead?
Do not use the one on Southwood Road (New Eltham but Greenwich Borough) - they are truely awful - DS hated it and they were so unorganised and not at all helpful when it came to settling him - I moved him pretty sharpish!
Blimey! I sooo wished I'd knew how bad it was for nurseries around here while I was pregnant now, it is ridiculous. dd is already on the waiting list for nursery around the corner in Deptford but doesn't look like we'll get in, hence looking at other options now. I've started looking over in Docklands, though I work in town (Westminister): had a look at Mudchute Farm Nursery though they prefer it if you live round there or work at Canary Wharf, they didn't have a great deal of time for me which was offputting so obviously no shortage of parents for them! Also it's not that convenient to get to for pick up/drop off so probably a no-go but getting desperate. Going to see Lanterns next week, and then start looking at childminders so keeping options open. How much do nannies cost? I haven't a clue, so need to see if we can afford it!
