I agree with above comments and would not recommend this nursery. The director is very unpleasant in how she treats the parents. She is prepared to exclude children from the nursery on the basis of minor disagreements with parents. She has done so recently and from one day to the next, and the children did not even get the opportunity to say good-bye to their friends and the teachers who had been caring for them for years. Although I have not been affected by this, my child has found it difficult to understand why some children have suddenly disappeared from the nursery without farewell.
The staff on the ground are wonderful with the children, but they are under a lot of pressure by the director. This is reflected by a relatively high staff turn over which, in light of recent events, is probably not going to get any better. There are many other good nurseries in Hackney, I would not recommend this one.
Yes, I know what you mean -- the director seems prepared to invent whatever suits her, and to bully staff into corroborating her claims. Not what one would expect from a nursery provider.
I really wouldn't recommend this nursery: the director, who ultimately manages it, is wholly unreasonable and capable of being vindictive towards the children. Contrary to its claim of having long-serving staff, I witnessed a high turnover of staff, which in my view is bad for the stability of the children's experience. I also found the director to be dishonest, which I consider to be completely unacceptable in a person occupying such a position of responsibility.
