Testimonials

Maisie Poppins nursery is a haven for our little ones. Just off busy Mare St. in Hackney they step into a bubble of love, care and inclusion. We could not say thank you enough to the incredible staff who take care of our little boy. Having special needs, we were very careful in our choice of nursery. They are thoughtful, proactive and responsive. Communication channels are open and everyone who works there creates a welcoming, supportive environment. Our little guy has thrived in the nursery setting. I have no doubt that his development is further than it could ever have been because of their input. Every week a theme is carefully selected, and the activities are set up to stimulate little one’s minds. I am always in awe of the incredible effort that the staff make to create a fantastic learning experience every day. We have never felt that our little boy is being treated differently, rather the ethos of inclusion is lived and breathed every day. We couldn't ask for more!

"We have used Maisie Poppins for both our children and thoroughly recommend the brilliant service they provide to children and parents. All the staff clearly love children and are completely in tune with them and are also able to guide them gently and respectfully to develop their full potential as little humans. Both our kids bonded very securely with their key persons, as well as the other staff. The children enjoy a wide range of activities and themes which change every week, keeping things engaging, but also benefitting from a regular structure to their day. They get plenty of time outside and in the beautiful garden. Both our children have really thrived in this environment; despite their different personalities they have both benefited in so many ways from the gentle and calm approach used in Maisie Poppins. The communication between staff and parents is open and smooth, with daily handovers and pictures, which is so lovely to have and not necessarily the norm. You know your children will be in excellent hands at Maisie Poppins Nursery, and that peace of mind is priceless."

"This is an exceptional nursery. The staff are so positive and nurturing. The rooms and grounds that the children have access to are much more spacious and light than other nurseries we visited in the area.

Debora,

Maisie Poppins parent

"Very pleased with our son's progress so far. He finds new surroundings a little daunting, but the staff made him feel at home the moment he arrived."

Mark,

Maisie Poppins parent

"Sending your child to nursery is difficult for any parent. You want to make the right choice so your little one is happy and therefore develops. During Covid my child did not have the opportunity to interact with other children or be held by other members of family for the first 12 months of his life. Going to nursery was going to be a difficult step. The staff at Maisie Poppins have been more than amazing in helping my son settle in. I can leave him at the door knowing he is in safe hands. As a parent of course I worry, that's natural, but I don't worry about the care he is experiencing. Maisie Poppins has been the right choice and my son is happy."
