4 Street Nursery

Fore St, Eastcote, Pinner HA5 2HX, UK – 01895 623288

My shy timid little boy who wouldn't play with other children, wouldn't speak to any adults and wouldn't even look any one in the eye skipped off to infant school yesterday full of confidence. This is all down to 4 Street Nursery. The carers are so genuine and they really care and understand the children. There are definitely more carers than necessary which means everyone gets lots of attention. Every day all I saw was big smiles and enthusiasm and I was so happy to have my children around people like this. Not only are they nice but they have great methods of teaching the kids and equip them with great skills for life. The office and management team are second to none. They totally get what a parent needs and will bend over backwards to accommodate and support you and are so dedicated to the children. Some how they manage to treat you like you and your child are the most important people in the world I really don't know how they manage to do it with so many children on their books. They really know the children and understand what they need at times more than the parent! They genuinely care about the children and have often gone above and beyond what's required to support them and us as parents. The managers are super knowledgeable and have given me so much support over the last couple of years I will actually feel quite lost without them. Thank you so much for the support you've given us over the last 2 years. I could not believe my eyes when I saw how my son handled himself at his first day of school and this really is testament to 4Street Nursery.

I would not hesitate to recommend 4 Street Nursery to anyone (and have in fact recommended it to a number of friends). The best thing about it to me is the staff - they are a wonderful, caring and engaging group. They plan and carry out the most incredible activities for the children (usually without the need for any fancy toys or apparatus) which children are free to move between. They build great relationships with the children and also the parents and listen and help with any concern. I was also impressed with the 'school readiness' work they did with my older daughter and will do with my younger one when she gets to that stage.

After School Care

Cheeky Chums

8 Eastcote Rd, Pinner HA5 1HF, UK – 020 8868 2621

My Son has been with cheeky chums for over a year. I am extremely satisfied with the nursery. The staff is very warm and friendly and quickly develop a strong bond with the children. The children are well settled and the facilities are good. The staff and the key person work really hard and help children pick up skills and help them be more independent and ready for school. The key person works with the parents and provide inputs and feedback from time to time on the children's development. A big thumbs-up from me!

Extremely satisfied with my experience at Cheeky Chums Pinner. My daughter has only attended the nursery for one year and I have seen tremendous development in her overall personality. She has liked going to nursery from the first day, all thanks to the caring and welcoming staff. She has grown confident and independent. Like the fact that I am able to see her performance through the log on my phone. Feedback sessions are good. Highly recommend the nursery.

Eastbury Farm Primary School

Bishops Ave, Northwood HA6 3DG, UK – 01923 824543

Eastbury farm school is a place where my 3 children feel safe. It's a place where the teaching is second to none. The dedication of the new head Miss Workman and her leadership team is refreshing and I can only see things improving here. The recent results are proof of that. I love the school and everything about it, from the well mannered children to the lovely playground atmosphere. Not to mention the fabulous fundraisers! Don't let the Ofsted report put you off. Come and see the school and speak to the staff parents and children and then make your choice. It will be well worth it.

A wonderful, welcoming school family. My son has been here for 2 years now and he is very happy and settled here. The staff are very supportive of him and his additional needs. The head and her team are providing strong leadership, setting high standards for the staff and children to attain to. The school is supported by the PTA, families and staff, all working hard to maintain the welcoming school community, for our children's benefit. There is a real community spirit at this school, everyone is welcome and all children are cared for and nurtured here.
