The staff here are very professional and attentive. We could not have found a more loving and safe nursery. The team here are incredibly reliable.

We’re delighted with the care our little boy is getting from creative explorer’s. He started at 1 year old and he’s progressed so well through baby room and into T1. Creative explorers go to great to lengths to keep the little ones entertained and safe. We love the app you use and it’s great to see constant updates of what’s been happening through your very eventful and creative schedule. The staff are very friendly and caring and we feel like Luca Bear is in great hands. Dorota has been fantastic along with all the other staff we interact with on a daily basis. We’re constantly amazed at how much effort and time goes into the multicultural celebrations you have and we couldn’t recommend creative explorers enough :)

Our baby has been at Creative Explorers for a few months now and we are really happy with everything. Our baby has settled well and is well attached to her keyworker and other members of staff. All the staff are warm and friendly, and communication from nursery about various things is timely and clear. We love the photos and updates that we get every time she’s in and are really happy with our choice of nursery.
We have had a really positive experience with Creative Explorers. Felt reassured by the professionalism when we went to view. Signup was handled well. Our little boy settled in straight away and loved going in each day to see his teachers and little friends. Regular updates and pictures on the Famly app are really reassuring and I know that he is in great hands with all the ladies in the baby room. We are really sad to be leaving London in a couple of weeks and hope we will be able to find something similar. Would recommend Creative Explorers to anyone :)

My baby daughter was well looked after at the nursery by the staff. Reena was very flexible with us during the pandemic/lockdown and she made sure the transition from baby room to toddler room was smooth and stress free. I highly recommend this place to anyone.

My daughter has been at the baby and toddler site since she was 11 months old (she's now 18 months) and I could not be happier with the care she has received there from all of the staff. Everyone has worked so hard to care for her and shown so much kindness and love. Leaving your child in someone else's care is such a huge decision, but we have been so pleased that we found Creative Explorers and have only positive things to say about it!
