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 πŸ˜€. 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.

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!

Hi,

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.
