Both my kids attended the gants Hill playgroup and we are bonded more like a family with the play group staffs.

My eldest was a very clingy child who never liked to interact with others except for me n my husband. I was super worried about her and decided to place her in the care of the playgroup. Nihan was so friendly, kind and patient in handling kids, which gave me confidence in leaving my kid with them. Since it was a huge change for both me n my daughter, I used to leave a crying child with them and step out crying my eyes out. Nihan had to comfort both me and daughter 😀. But to my surprise, my daughter quickly got adapted to the play group environment and was eager to go there everyday. I was able to see how my baby turned into a very social n confident young girl. She doesn't like activities related to fine motor skills. However teacher Nuzzat was very patient and encouraged her to write, paint and do other activities.

My daughter was very possessive of me. This got me worried when I was pregnant with my second child. When I expressed my concern to the staffs in one of my casual chats, they took it upon themselves to help me out. Teacher Nuzzat sat with my daughter every day and talked about how family works, what is it to have a sibling, the love of siblings and how to take care of a baby etc. My daughter warmed up to the idea of having a sibling and I was surprised to see how well she took care of my little one after he was born. I was able to feel the love she has for her brother right from the first moment she saw him. I am so thankful for moments like these.

The playgroup staff always are helpful, friendly and supportive. They treated my kids like their own. I was eager to get my youngest placed there as well when he turned 2. Like my eldest, my youngest also settled so well in the playgroup. He enjoyed the ambience there and the company of the staffs. They are still his favourite grown ups. Both my kids are so different in character but they loved going to the play group all the same. Special mention to teacher Dawn, Lena and Nuzzat who made my little one into a very confident, kind and independent boy.

Now that both my kids are off to primary school, they dearly miss the staffs who were like family to us.

I wish Nihan and all the lovely staffs very best. U will always have a very spl place in our hearts.

Few words about the playgroup setting before I conclude my review 😊 The playgroup was maintained very clean with a wide variety of toys that was rotated on a regular basis so the children get to play with different set of toys everyday. They also have outdoor garden area where the kids get to play everyday. The nursery also provided snacks in the morning sessions to the kids. So on days where my kids dint eat a proper breakfast at home, I wasn't too worried as I knew they will get to eat cereals or fruits during their break time. The playgroup have schedule planned everyday for the kids, so we will know what the kids are doing there. I never seen such structured activity plan in any other nurseries I had enquired before.

I am one very happy parent with lot of happy memories from the playgroup. I will keep recommending this play group to all my friends and acquaintance.

The staff at the nursery were great with my son and adapted to his needs. My son was not the easiest of children to deal with; his speech and communication levels were not quite in line with the average for his age. The nursery staff understood his sensitivities and helped him learn and grow. Despite the several lockdowns of 2020 causing gaps in his attendance, he enjoyed going to nursery and I am now looking to send my youngest son to the nursery too.

Gants Hill Playgroup has been an amazing pre-school for my son. He's been there for one and half years and had memorable time. He misses the staff Nihan and Dawn and all his friends there. Just doesn't want to go to full school but continue at the playgroup.😊

A very warm and friendly staff who are very patient with the children. Both Nihan and Dawn listen to the parents to understand and accommodate. I have received great advice from them about child behaviour and management.

I couldn't have asked for a better pre-school for my child in those tender early years. I highly recommend this pre-school.

My both girls went to Gantshill preschool nursery. My elder one went for 2 years and was always excited to go. She learned new activities and improved her communication skills.
Nihan and all the staff members are friendly. They always keep me uptodate about her activities and gave her report time to time.
Thanks for helping her grow & Wish you all the very best in future.

My son has been attending Gants Hill Playgroup for 1 and half year. He went in as a very shy boy.

I was very worried about how he would interact with other children or the teachers.

He settled in very quickly at the playgroup which is a credit to Dawn and Nihan and other staff's.

My son was learning new words every day.
He loved his time there and as parents we were more than satisfied with the progress he was making at this nursery.
