Funky Owls is such a lovely nursery with fantastic staff. After our previous experiences at a larger ‘chain’ nursery, it’s been so wonderful to send our daughters to a setting with a great emphasis on community and where all the staff know all the children. An added bonus are the great extra curricular activities, such as tennis and music. Our shy 3 yo old now loves going to nursery and our cheeky 20 month old has been supported so well since she joined as a baby. We cannot fault our experience with Funky Owls and we are excited to see the new venue once it’s finished!
We have sadly had to say goodbye to Funky Owls as we are moving away from the area, but would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a loving, caring nursery where your child can flourish and have fun! The nursery is run by a couple of amazing mums who welcome you as a part of the Funky Owls family, and we always felt that they would do whatever they could to help and support our son, and also us as a family. What I found the most refreshing was the honesty of the staff/management at Funky Owls, with such clear and open communication with parents. We always felt that we were in the loop of what was happening, especially through the recent difficult times with the pandemic.
Thanks for having us as part of the Funky Owls family, we really will miss you all lots!
My daughter started at Funky Owls when she was 9 months old and I can’t believe how much she has developed over the few months she has been there. She has grown in confidence and is now a thriving bubbly one year old. The staff there are fantastic and look after and love her as though she were their own. When I drop her off in the morning, she literally dives into their arms such is the excitement to be there. Thank you to the whole team there, you are doing so much for my little girl, I can’t thank you enough!
The perfect start to our child’s journey. Our son attended Funky Owls for almost 3 years. He made great friends (he is in school with 7 or so) and enjoyed his time there immensely. The staff were warm and caring and it was always a joy to collect him at the end of a busy working day and be informed of all the fun activities he’d enjoyed. There is a “family feel” to this nursery as Zuzanna created it and shaped it using her experience to provide a nurturing setting for young, adventurous children. The nursery evolved constantly during our time there and I was always very impressed by the provisions. We have very fond memories of Funky Owls.
A lovely nursery, my daughter settled really well and loved her time there. The communication from the team was brilliant with daily updates and pictures via the app on all the activities they had been up to that day. The staff are all very friendly and supportive
Funky Owls is an absolutely wonderful nursery – my nearly 2 year old daughter adores the staff and doesn’t want to leave at the end of the day! We’ve been going from about 14 months but they take under 1s. The materials and toys they have are great – she’s learnt so much since attending the setting. The meals are so varied and made on site which I think is a real plus. She’s often going out on outings outside of the nursery which is great for her development as well. And I’ve made some friends too! Can’t recommend it more highly.
Highly recommend Funky Owls nursery. I have been very impressed with the quality of care that they provide and our child is very happy here. They have a fantastic app that gives parents updates during the day – and the activities the children participate in are always interesting and varied.
Fantastic nursery! Our 2 year old boys started there a year ago and they found a wonderful, family-like environment, with caring key workers that helped them develop into thriving and happy little ones. They are always so full of joy going there and so happy and content at the end of the day, and we know they always have fun-packed days with music, art, running around the garden, play and rest. It feels like a real community, with a special human touch thanks to the little celebrations through the year, cooking sessions, photos and scrapbooks: our boys (and us!) have a heart filled with memories from a wonderful year spent at Funky Owls!
Our son has attended the nursery since he was 10 months old and would have happily remained there until he goes to school next Sept, however the new location really doesn’t work for us.
The team are amazing and have spent a lot of time and effort in creating a nurturing, family feel to the nursery. They continually seem to be trying to improve an already great setting and structure which has additional activities such teddy tennis, the music man and are looking to introduce new languages. My husband is also continually commenting on the fact that our son eats better than we do on a daily basis!
Can’t recommend the staff or the nursery highly enough, which is located right by the tube. Our son attended for a year and had a great time, he learned and progressed so much under their care. We were really sad to have to remove him but were moving out of London. The nursery update you multiple times a day on activities, progress, diary and diet etc complete with picture updates and learnings via an app, they take the children to the park every day come rain or shine and have something new or novel for the children to do every day. The staff really do care and love your child as you do, which is all you can really ask for! They never had to shut once despite Covid, which speaks volumes for their level of care and preparation. Can’t rate and thank them highly enough!/
