Testimonials

The Little People of Willow Vale nursery is so friendly and welcoming. My son is now 3 years old and has been attending for the last 18 months. He has benefitted so much from his sessions at the nursery in terms of his language development, social skills and learning good routines. All the ladies who look after the children are so caring and nurturing, they really get to know the children well and make them feel loved and supported.

My son is 16 months and has been in the nursery for 10 months now.
Amazing and caring staff. They get to really know all the babies and adapt to their specific requirements and personalities. The babies do many different activities and go outside to the garden or park every day. They get to learn a lot. Parents are informed daily through an app on what the babies have eaten, the sleeping times and activities the babies have done through the day which is really nice.

Deeply human and genuinely caring nursery staff.

I feel rest assured every day that my girl is taken good care of. While Little People of Fulham may seem a bit small, the teachers more than make up for it and the outdoor area is super nice.

I'm amazed by my 3-year-old daughter telling me about all the bones in the human body, continents, seasons, numbers, showing me her ballet and yoga skills and talking to me in Spanish.

I'm very happy my little one goes to Little People Nursery.

We love Little People of Fulham! The practitioners are all kind and warm and our 11 month old daughter loves spending the day with them. The nursery is well managed and has great facilities. We love getting regular updates from the practitioners that let us know what our daughter has been doing, whether she has slept and what she has had for lunch. The nursery organises well thought out programmes of activity and sends excellent communications and newsletters. We are so glad that our daughter goes to this nursery!
