My 2.5 year old son has been going to this nursery for over a year now and absolutely loves it.

Following a move back to the UK from overseas when he was almost 1.5 years old, he was a tad unsettled, and I was worried he would get "lost" in a big nursery as he was very attached to myself and my husband. I was therefore keen to get him into a smaller nursery where he could flourish and thrive in a boutique setting.

Natalie has been instrumental in helping him get there. He absolutely loves her and we can see how much he has developed under her guidance. He tells us about his day when he comes home and is very good at telling us it's tidy up time and making us play games that he has learned during the day.

Natalie is an absolute natural with him and my husband and I are so happy we found this nursery. Both Natalie and Claire are friendly, caring and extremely professional and we know our son is in good hands. The fact that he loves spending time with them is testament to that!

My daughter Emily joined the Forest Hills Nursery in January 2020 at the age of 1 and is loving it! I couldn't be happier with the service Natalie and Claire provide. They do lots of activities which change daily and provide a wide range of healthy homecook meals. This boutique setting of 6 children is just perfect, especially since I was worried that a larger nursery might be overwhelming for Emily after spending 12 months with mum and dad!

Our 18 month old attends the Forest Hills Nursery and we are incredibly impressed with all aspects of the nursery.

Not only is our little boy really happy and settled (evident from the fact that he never wants to leave!) but Natalie and her team are outstanding in every way. They are so imaginative and creative with all his activities for the day and ensuring that he is stimulated. The care and attention he gets is second to none.

Natalie is clearly passionate about what she does. She is a complete natural with him and it’s easy to see why the children all adore her so much. She is also very personable and professional.

We can’t believe we were lucky enough to find this nursery - we’re hoping to keep our son there until he’s ready for university!

Our 9 month old son goes to the Forest Hills Nursery in Teddington and we can't recommend it highly enough.

He thoroughly enjoys himself every day and is very happy to see Natalie every morning.

Natalie is fantastic and is so natural with him, it is clear that she really enjoys her role and she loves spending time with him. She has such a great attitude and is really accommodating and tries to be as flexible as possible with respect to our needs. We also completely trust her and her decisions. She takes the role seriously and has a wealth of knowledge and experience. She always has new ideas to encourage our son in his learning and development and stimulate his interest and his senses.

Even at such a young age he has been out on frequent educational and fun trips and he is always experiencing new environments. We can't wait until he's old enough to tell us all about his adventures!

Overall we would definitely recommend the nursery and we feel confident and happy leaving our son knowing that he is in good hands.

My daughter struggled with both confidence and ability in Maths. Natalie effectively assessed her needs and areas to work on and we now have a child who believes she can tackle any maths problem put in front of her. Having her own children makes her empathetic and she has a lovely way with connecting with our daughter in order to get the best out of their lesson. My child can easily get distracted however Natalie is able to keep the lessons fun with a range of resources which holds her attention for the full hour. At the end of the session she then explains what she has taught and gives us a small related task to work on for the next week. We started tutoring with Natalie half way through last year and her end of year report noticed a marked difference in confidence and ability during the last half of term. I was thrilled at the difference the tutoring is making. Can't recommend Natalie highly enough.
