Our son was at Gants Hill Playgroup for two years. He went in a very shy boy and we were quite worried about how he would interact with a group of children. He settled in very quickly at the playgroup which is a credit to the staff...particularly Dawn and Nihan. He loved his time there and as parents we were more than satisfied with the progress he was making at this nursery.
The nursery was always clean with lots of activities and toys for the children. They were well looked after and our son always looked forward to going to nursery.
We went for his first parents evening at recption at school and they asked me if I was worried about anything. When I mentioned his shyness and confidence they couldn't believe it and said we had nothing to worry about in that respect. His first school report was outstanding. Only 6 weeks into reception and he has already met over 80% of his first term targets. This again is a massive credit to Gans Hill Playgroup and we are very grateful we had the opportunity to send our children to this nursery.
All in all very highly recommended.

My son used to go to this nursery for 2 years and he enjoyed every single minute there. The member of staff are very friendly and take their work very seriously. My son still ask about his teachers. I would like to take this opportunity to thank every single teacher there for being there for my son and all the other children. They are doing an amazing job! Best of luck for in the future!

Thank you so much for your kind words, reading them made us very happy and makes our jobs more valuable. It was a great pleasure to work with you and your child.
We will miss him a lot as well..
We wish you and your family all the best for the future.

Kind Regards,

Gants Hill Playgroup

I can't thank Nihan and all the collective of teachers enough for an outstanding care for our son Matyas. He is very active child with very busy mind and can be little bit of a hand full :) at times ...but they managed his active nature so well and he has learned so much and I can tell he really enjoyed going there and spend time with his teaches and friends.We had great support from the team as parents as well which is so nice and comforting. Especially when you have to go back to work after spending so much time with you little one you want to be sure your baby is in a safe place and being looked after with love and care. We can only recommend this nursery and if we were to have an other child in the future we would definitely take him/her to this nursery:)!

Excellent family orientated Play group

I don't know where to start . Both my children grew up here at gantshill play group and last so many things I cannot not emphasis the nursery has teachers that are so helpful and loving with the children being mothers them selves most of them can rely to how to deal with children. I loved the extra small touches this playgroup has which makes it a class different and gave me memories for life which I why I say it's like family feeling for eg the photographs of graduation pictures for mothers day and fathers day Xmas parties and when they finish a collection of the years of things the children have collated amazingly it brings tears to my eyes that my children are now going to reception I will miss u guys and your love and care you all gave my children you will greatly be missed best memories of my life with this play group. Teacher Nuzhat, Nihan teacher Zara Sabrina and Dawn sorry if i mossd any names these were the teachers in interacted with mostly thanks ever so much i wish o go up turn back time so my children can go back to your nursery!! Hats off to you busy for making it so special for children. Thanks once again i never felt for one day my kids in I'm Sad hands always felt reassured my children were in safe hands and well looked after.

Thanks Johan for all your help and flexibility always ... we all will miss u xxx

My 3 year old started Gants Hill playschool In jan 2019.i was very concerned as he was very clingy and had never stayed with anyone other than me or his father.But as many of my friends and family had recommend this play school after sending their own children, I decided to go ahead and give it a go.WELL! With the help of the lovely Nihan and her gentle approach he settled in after a short time and loved it From then on.The staff are approachable and caring.the recommendation was so strong that I traveled from another borough, but it was sooo worth it.Im sad he no longer goes there, but I know he has benefited and will have an easier time adapting to school nursery in sept.It almost felt as if I was dropping him off to a family member, I felt so confident and comfortable that he was in the greatest hands.Dawn was also so very attentive and caring she will be missed too.We have nothing but positive thoughts about this setting and all the staff in it.
