I have found this preschool to be exceptional. I have several years experience working with pre-school children in various settings, and looked round a number to find exactly what I was looking for. Magic Dragon most definitely has that extra touch of 'Magic' that I was after. The staff are wonderful and knowledgeable and go the extra mile - really caring about my daughter's social and emotional development, as well as learning new skills. Although she's very sociable, I was worried about her settling in after having attended no toddler classes or groups since March - I needn't have worried! The staff were so kind and she was settled by her second session. I asked her in the evening if anything made her happy today and she said: "going to preschool makes me happy and excited!" What more could a parent want?!

We had Tara look after our 2yr old boy for a few days and he absolutely loved her! They got on really well and quickly became friends. She is very easy going and approachable and he thoroughly enjoyed his time with her! We’d definitely have Tara look after our son again in a heartbeat!
Lora had my little girl over the half term. She was amazing, my daughter enjoyed spending the day at Lora's house and would ask me if she is going again the next day. Her children are amazing, so friendly and lovely.
I am just so thankful I ran across Lora's profile and she had availability during that time. I will definitely seek her help over many half terms to come 🌸
My son has been going to Marie for the past 1.5 years now. Words can’t describe how lucky I am to find someone like marie who’s give so much time to my son who was always anxious to leave home. Marie has so much patience and today my little man just wants to go to her. That has become his second home and us as a parent we can’t thank her enough for all her hardworks. She’s the best and she will never disappoint you. I would 100% recommend her because she is amazing in what she does. Thank you marie
My little boy had been going to kristina a for a year or so. He absolutely loved being there and always asked about kristina and wanted to go see her, we never had any issues with him going as he loved to be there. Updates on my sons day were always detailed and on time, kristina made good healthy food and snacks which my son always enjoyed. His verbal and communication skills had come on so well since being with kristina along with his confidence.
I would 100 percent recommend kristina to anyone, she was always so helpful and very flexible which was perfect for us as I wasn’t always sure when I was going to be at work but kristina worked around us and was a massive help and support throughout my sons time with her. Thank you so much for everything you’ve done for Roman x
Shakira looked after our daughter full time between when she was 11 months and 2.5 years and we were so happy with her - our daughter was welcomed into Shakira's family with so much love, it was like a second home. I couldn't recommend Shakira highly enough for a loving environment where the children are truly cared for.
My son has been going here since not long after they opened, all was well for the first six months but since I dropped his hours the owner has been extremely unhelpful regarding changing hours and various issues. Since my son went back after lockdown the care he has been receiving is awful. He only went 3 mornings a week 3 hours per session. On one week he came home in different clothes each day he was there as his nappy had soaked. Almost every time Ive picked him up his nappy has been either wet or bulging. I have now taken him out of the nursery and the manager has done nothing argue, be very rude, and unprofessional despite me being very reasonable. Glad I’ve decided not to send him back as that’s not the type of person I want around my son. I’m yet to receive my deposit back and have now been blocked for asking when I will get it. Have kept all of the messages and taken screenshots, and if this isn’t sorted I will be reporting the nursery and taking legal action.
Our son went to Sacha when he was 10 month and now, almost 3, still spends half the week with her (now in nursery the other half - we couldn't bear to lose her! She is incredibly loving and dedicated to the development of children she looks after. But even more than that she has been great to work with as a first time parent and supported us as a whole family with a range of issues - notably sleep and other behavioural things that inevitably crop up with toddlers! She gives the children she looks up to a real variety of experiences (they won't get bored) from zoo and museum trips to lots of arty/creative stuff and plenty of fresh air and running around Hampstead Heath. She's a really wonderful and talented person (could have done so many things - teaching, counselling) and quite exceptional. It's a lucky family that gets a place with her.

My little boy has been with Teresa now for 2 months and he absolutely loves going! He loves Teresa and the girls so much and has such a big grin on his face when we drop him off every time, which is so reassuring to both his dad and myself. Teresa’s set up is just fantastic and there’s always something for him to play with. He’s only 7 months old, so to be able to have developed that much of a bond already shows how special it is there. I get daily photos and updates to show what he’s up to and the fun he’s having. We’ve seen a massive difference in all his abilities and every day he’s learning new skills there! Having been born in lockdown and never meeting another person apart from his dad and myself before going to Teresa, it shows just how homely he finds it there (both the environment and everyone there) that he hasn’t had an issue settling in!
Vanessa is an Outstanding childminder. Our daughter attended Vanessa's setting for a year and she grew and learnt so much thanks to Vanessa's care, love and dedication. We could not be happier!
Vanessa is very professional and goes the extra mile to help the children under her care thrive.
Thank you Vanessa!
Patricia has been looking after our son for several month and it has been a totally seamless and joyful experience. We dropped him off at 8 months, which felt so young but the care and attention he gets is brilliant. Patricia's exposes him to lots of stimulus and his days are filled with energy, variety and new activities. She is super flexible and accommodating to our needs and has been very reassuring to us as new parents. She has been supportive and worked with us to improve sleep routines, meal times and all things that small people need as they develop. Patricia’s house is clean, safe and child-friendly and we would recommend her to any family looking for childcare services.
Lynn has a family of well mannered, well behaved children of her own which says a lot about her ability with children. I would be very pleased for my own children to be so respectful.
My son is very fond of Lyn, he is happy & comfortable in her company and he listens to her. I am always more than happy to leave my children in her care.
I can’t speak highly enough of her as a childminder, and experienced mother.
Highly recommend Caroline. My 3 children (5, 4 and 2) are quite shy when it comes to new people so we were apprehensive of getting a childminder but they settled with Caroline straight away! No complaints from us or the kids, they're sad to leave her! We always hear such great things from the children about Caroline and even though I have major anxiety I feel at complete ease leaving them with her. Very punctual, extremely good costs, and Caroline is so lovely and friendly. We started using Caroline for school runs (both drop offs and pick ups) and have since used her services of longer stays both during the day and overnight. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a friendly but professional childminder
My son went to this pre-school for two years and I couldn,t be more happy with the way he has been taken care of. As English is his second language he has made huge progress with the help of the professional team from the pre-school. He was really happy and anxious to go every day and after two years he is doing really well in reception. Thank you Des and the team! We miss you lots and wish you the best!

Tatum also on occasions has my other daughter sienna (aged 6 ) , sienna also loves it there !
If your looking for a kind , friendly home I totally recommend tatum .
Highly recommend Kiely for anyone in need of a childminder. My son (3) absolutely loves going there. He gets so excited. Always has loads of fun whatever they do, there’s something for every child. Kiely is definitely passionate about caring for the children & making sure they have the best of times. Best childminder my son has had by far! So glad I found Romsey Rugrats- & very flexible too!
My daughter has been going and I have seen nothing but positive changes in her. She really enjoys going and all the activitys offered to her. The staff are all lovely, caring, welcoming and nothing is too much for them. Highly reccomend to anyone looking for childcare.
I cannot recommend Anna’s Acorns enough.
Both of my children have been with Anna and John and we were all sorry to leave them (my children went to school). I felt so comfortable and at ease leaving my children with Anna, my children enjoyed going there and felt safe and comfortable too. Not only do Anna and John provide a loving, caring environment, they educate the children inside and outside of the setting, which is brilliant! Thank you for everything you did for us, we appreciate it all and will definitely stay in touch. Get a place at Anna’s Acorns whilst you can, as I’m sure they are in high demand!!
Our daughter Freya has been at Sweetpeas for almost 2 years, and we couldn't be happier with our experience. Freya absolutely loves going to Sweetpeas and always comes home proudly with things to show us that she's made at Sweeppeas. Vicky and Debbie are constantly coming up with fun and exciting activities to engage the children, such as arts and craft, music, cooking, dressing up and much more. They have a lovely, very well kept garden and playroom and are always investing in lots of new toys/activity packs, to keep the children stimulated. Vicky and Debbie are energetic, kind, caring, professional and the mother daughter dynamic works fantastically. They are very experience and supportive when it comes to things like potty training, sleep and weaning. They have high expectations and set clear boundaries which the children respond very well to. The food is excellent with home cooking and lots of vegetables and exotic fruit. We couldn't recommend them more.
