My son has been attending this nursery for over 3 years now and we are extremely happy with the care he has received and his development. The staff and management are very professional and they genuinely care about the children's development and wellbeing. I would highly recommend this nursery and pre-school to other parents!

My child was very happy here, even though only attending for a short time. The nursery offers an amazing range of activities, including languages, music, drama, and important life skills. I feel like it's great preparation for school. I am not sure about the food, as I never actually saw any of it (dropoff at door, but menu provided) and some teachers were strongly encouraging the children to eat, which I am not a fan of personally, but apart from that we were very happy. Excellent, caring teachers and staff that cater for individual childrens' needs.

My son started nursery when he was only 10 months old, his first approach with the nursery wasn’t very good, he was crying all the time and was extremely difficult and stressful to drop him in the morning.
The stuff seemed not to care enough as anything they were able to repeat me all the time was: “just ignore it!” I got to the point I thought it was even a pain for the stuff to welcome my son in the morning as I never had a smile or a word of understanding.
Not only was a complete disaster, I was told repeatedly my son wanted to be held all the time. I’ve been called in with the assistant of the manager to “find a solution to this” and what I’ve been asked for was literally train my baby to stay on his own and to not respond to his needs.
It’s easy to imagine how I felt as a mother to be told all the time how difficult was to deal with a baby that nothing wanted more than been cuddled or considered for what he is: a baby!
It was very difficult for my son to fall asleep at the nursery so I suggested they would hold him and walk around a little to make him fall asleep, again, the staff suggested I had to train my son to fall asleep on his own and the most recurring tip was: IGNORE HIS NEEDS.
I’m so happy I went against their careless approach.
You expect from a childcare structure to be able to deal with this situations in a more comprehensive way, considering the years of experience they have.
A lot of girls in the staff were nice but the people in charge were terrible and inquisitive!

On the top of this, the management used to be unorganised with the accountancy, sending emails more than once asking for money with did already pay. We’ve never been late with payments but we were treated like we always own them something.

Cold and shallow approach with kids, they act as they are in front of a robot to use with an instruction manual. Kids need more than simple rules, especially when they are still babies. Also poor and rude management, trying to charge more than requested all the time with no shame or regret. Not people to trust! We have also officially complained with the Ofstead because seems absurd that they are going away with all of that. I am sure the outstanding will go soon as speaking with other parents we are not the only one unhappy. A waste of time and money! Now we are in a new nursery and kid and parents are much happier.

Our daughter has been attending Hornsey day for a year now and we could not be happier with the service they provide. All the staff are highly qualified and very engaged with the children's welfare and development. It's a large enough setting that there are lots of great activities and stimulation, but small enough that the staff form strong bonds with the children and provide personalised care. Our daughter does drama, Spanish, art, singing, trips out and she's 2! She is thriving. I could not recommend Hornsey Day enough.
