PreSchools and Playgroups for Walthamstow

Leytonstone Community Pre-school

Lister Hall, Lister Rd, Leytonstone, London E11 3DS, UK – 020 8988 1019

Both my kids attended Green Man up to the point where they left to go to the local primary school and loved it. Great place, with friendly staff who clearly like kids - and like interacting with them. I particularly liked the fact that they didn't tie me into going every day and that the lunch-club gave me until 1:15pm. Their previous premises had a nice big garden. The current place doesn't have quite such a nice outdoor play-space, but they are clearly working hard to make it better.

A wonderful preschool. This is the first place I left my little boy other than with relatives and I was instantly sure that he would be happy there. The staff enjoy being with the children and my son loves it. The staff have taken a quite shy little boy and helped him to blossom into a confident, opinionated person. There are lots of different activities for the children to do every day and the parents are all very involved too which makes it feel friendly. You can choose how many days your child attends and so start them off slowly if you want to. I can only recommend it.

After School Care

Kids R Us Daycare Nursery

881 High Rd Leytonstone, London E11 1HR, UK – 020 8530 5333

My son has been attending this nursery for over 2 years and I cannot praise their personnel highly enough. They accommodated my little boy’s differences very well, the ladies were helpful, caring and observant, all health professionals’ recommendations were put in place for my child and he was happy there. The nursery is well organized and superbly managed. I appreciate how much my son learned there and I see now, he’s in reception, how well he was prepared for enjoying school, making friends and learning.

Outstanding nursery. My son has learnt a lot there. Brilliant and very supportive staff. They used to go out of their way to support my son. Very well organised nursery and professional staff. Highly recommended.

Excel Day Nursery

62 Hainault Rd, London E11 1EQ, UK – 020 8556 1732

My daughter loves it here, enjoys the food/ garden and day trips. It has a family feeling, staff and owner are very understanding and they take the time to accomodate to each child's wants and needs. They have a great approach to their work, well set routine. This is coming from a mum with serious trust issues that is suing her previous nursery.

Good Child care

The learning hub is now helping me with my A Levels, and I am learning more at this centre that I am at my own school from my A level teachers. I feel confident secure with my exams due to the excellent teaching skills of the learning hub. Additionally I would like to big up Sir Shabaz for his kind professional thoughtful up to date experienced knowledgable attributes. Because of this I can recommend the learning hub to absolutely everyone.
