“My daughter started attending Lemongrove aged 11 months. As with any first-time parent, I was extremely nervous about leaving her to return to work. I viewed 5 other local nurseries and chose Lemongrove because (and I know this makes no sense but) it felt more like a home than a nursery. 2 years later and I still feel the same way. My 3-year-old knows the name of every single staff member in the nursery and doesn’t ever pass any of them without them saying hello. Everyone is incredibly friendly, and all appear happy to be there which I think is very important when choosing a nursery.
2 years on and I’m still very happy with my decision. The communication has always been very good and the staff always very attentive. The toddler room staff lead the way with potty training, informing me when they thought she was ready and doing the bulk of the work using reward charts, plenty of encouragement etc. I couldn’t have been happier with how that was handled. The moves from room to room are handled very smoothly and well-coordinated and I’m given plenty of advanced notice and the staff turnover appears to be very low. My daughter absolutely loves it here, she would often tell me how much she loves mummy, daddy and her key worker! I would and have recommended this nursery to many parents. It is a lovely hidden treasure in Bromley, I only wish they ran a school, so my daughter didn’t have to leave.”AS
