What our parents would like to share...
My son has been with giggles since he was 8 months (2010) and he still attends at nearly 8 years old. It is a home from home nurturing environment which put my son totally at ease right from the beginning. Right from the start I felt comfortable dropping him off knowing he would be exceptionally well cared for. There is so much variety of activities for the children on offer from trips to kew gardens and the park to craft activities and baking. He has also learned so much whilst there, even some Spanish! It is a truly fantastic place for children and I would have no hesitation recommending Giggles to my friends. 2017
My two sons attended Giggles from baby and toddler, right through to starting primary school. Giggles offers excellent caring childcare in a nurturing home environment, to every age and stage of development, from babies to toddlers to pre school. I am delighted to see my four year old now completely ready for the demands of reception year, thanks to the input and commitment of all the Giggles staff. The opportunities offered to children at Giggles are second to none, from educational visits to Kew Gardens and other outdoor places, to the Science Museum and Natural History Museum. The opportunities are unrivalled, as is the care and the attention to detail, including nutrition.
They have been instrumental in supporting him through every stage of his development so that he is a confident, happy, adventurous inquisitive child. I have no hesitation in recommending Giggles to parents of babies, toddlers and three and four year olds getting ready to start primary school.
Thank you Giggles! July 2016
Armaan started Giggles as a baby around 10 months (2013) Unlike most babies he took a while to settle in, almost 2-3 months as he had separation anxiety! Giovanna and the giggles carers were extremely patient and loving and took all the time needed to ensure Armaan felt safe, secure and at home in Giggles! Its 5 years now that he has been there and for us Giggles has been a golden find. Armaan loved his days at Giggles and thoroughly soaks in all the fun, play and cuddles. He loves the outdoor time, independent play, creative messy play and most of all the strong bonding with kids & adults alike which is really unique in this setting! We are super happy with what Giovanna and her lovely team and homely environment have brought into these early, formative years of our little one's life. Now he has moved on to school and still attend the setting after school. Armaan's sister is also at the setting. Thank you guys, you are brilliant!
Finding Giggles was what enabled me to feel able to return to work, as I had not been able to find anywhere I felt comfortable leaving my then 10month daughter who was extremely clingy. Giggles was the “home from home” environment I was looking for, and I immediately knew it was the perfect choice. My daughter settled surprisingly easily and has never looked back. She loves the staff and has made a very strong bonds with her circle of friends, and talks incessantly about “Giovanna & Giggles”! I love the range of activities they do, and the fact they are often out and about exploring in Kew Gardens, charging around the local playground, or helping Giovanna in the kitchen….exactly as she would be doing if she were with me.
It was without hesitation that my son aged 11months recently joined his big sister at Giggles – and he absolutely loves it too! The fact that they are both happily there together is a huge weight of my mind.
I have been recommending Giggles to every new Mum I meet!
