Information For Parents

What our Mums & Dads think about Balfour Nursery!

I really want to thank to each and every teaching staff of the nursery. This is the place
where my daughter spent almost a year before her primary school and we could see
her growth in every aspect. We could really felt the effort and affection from the
teachers that brings smile to my little one. Thank you!!

Balfour nursery is excellent. I cannot rate them highly enough. My daughter has very complex medical condition requiring a lot of extra care. Dawn, Harvinder and the whole team went the extra mile for my little princess. I remember they organised an out of hours training session for ALL the staff so the they could all be aware of what to do with my daughter.

I was so reassured. I am sure without Balfour and their meticulousness with Oumy; I would not have managed to keep a full time job.
My mind was at ease when she was in nursery. Sometimes they would do even better than I. They helped her reached her milestones and documented everything. I am so very impressed and pleased with how Oumy has been cared for.

Dear parent, if you are in the Ilford area and your heart is swinging between two or more nurseries, go to Balfour without any hesitation. They are just top notch.

Both of my kids went to this nursery and I was always happy with the way the staff took care of them. They were always so supportive and encouraged my kids to develop their learning skills especially towards the end when preparing to go to ‘big’ school. Meals are provided with snacks in-between, so you are assured your child is fed throughout the day. The staff  were always so supportive if you have questions about your wellbeing as a parent and that of your child. I would highly recommend them as they are one of the few in the area with early and late opening times, which is good for working parents especially seeing as it is literally minutes from the train station.

My boy is so happy; he has developed so well since starting, I’m so proud. If I had another child they would definitely be attending.

My child in 2 month has learnt, new words, eating more with a spoon and sits up at the table. He has become more sociable. He just seems  happier in social activities now. Very well managed team, who create a great environment for both child and parent.
