Ciara Pieters 5th Mar 2017 – All the staff at Ely are fantastic. The nursery is a warm and loving place and we are really happy with our keyworker. The quality of care provided is brilliant and the staff are amazing at organizing different festivals and events. The manager, Sharina has been very accommodating with allowing us to swap the odd day and when Sophia has been ill the staff have been incredible in looking after her and giving her Calpol and cuddles!

Stef Carpenter 13th Feb 2017 – I have a very positive relationship with all the staff and we’re made to feel welcome. The staff show interest and always have time to talk to me. Molly loves the nursery so much and adores all the green room staff; we can tell how nurtured she has been in the 3 ½ years she has been at Ely. Molly eats much better at nursery than at home as she loves the variety of food that is offered! We’re always given a wholesome picture of Molly’s day and food intake from whichever staff hands her over. Molly has gained tremendously from Ely and has made great progress during her time there. She has learnt about lots of different faiths and we feel so lucky to have found a nursery with such wonderful staff where Molly is so happy that she doesn’t want to go home!

Nina Moyano 1st Feb 2017 – I am very happy with the interaction levels provided by all the staff and I know that Aya loves everyone. There are great daily activities and we are happy with the amount of food provided throughout the day. Aya has made great progress in her development and we are absolutely thrilled she loves the nursery so much.

Simon Merrick 3rd Aug 2016 The staff at Ely are very caring and the relaxed atmosphere in the nursery suited George perfectly. He benefited greatly from the ‘learn through play’ ethos. He also loved the food, the parties and the trips out!

Lydia Edwige 13th Jul 2016 – Leon is my second child at Ely. There is such a great family atmosphere it really feels like a second home. The staff are experienced and friendly. The food is freshly cooked on the premises every day.

Sandrine Graham 2nd Jul 2016 – Ely provides a great learning environment and the teachers show they really care. Immaculata is forever singing all the songs she has learnt!

Sheetal Sharma 28th Jun 2016 – The staff interacted very well with Diya and displayed a nurturing relationship. I also loved the flexibility to add additional days when needed.

Maja Romaniuk 17th Jun 2016 – The Ely staff are always very friendly and helpful. The food is cooked freshly every day and the meals are very healthy. The garden is divided into many different sections that help stimulate the children in different ways.

Dahlia Jacobs 17th Jun 2016 – Ely has a small and warm environment with some star key workers! The reports and feedback are thorough and it is very useful to hear how the children are progressing in each area of development.

Laura Masino 10th Jun 2016 – Ely operates in a homely, family-like environment. The staff are welcoming and friendly, and we really appreciate the daily freshly cooked food.

Sanaz Siyahpoush 6th Jun 2016 – There is a great atmosphere in the nursery and the teachers are all fantastic. Even though Ariya took ages to settle in, they really persevered with him. We loved it here and he will miss his friends but will be joining his brother’s school where he will make even more friends!

Jenny Jebreel 20th May 2016 – Ely have warm and caring staff that operate in a safe and comfortable environment. We are grateful for the friendships and bonds that Reuben has made with other children and we look forward to sharing a similar positive experience with Freya.

Sam Littaur 20th Apr 2016 – The Ely staff are friendly and caring. We loved the good outside space and it was great to always be able to get extra days at short notice.

Angelica Samuila 24th Mar 2016 – The staff are friendly with kids and parents, and they really help children to improve their skills.

Yee Voon Hew 24th Sep 2015 – Nicholas had a fantastic time at Ely right from when he started at 7 mths to leaving for ‘big school’. Ely provided excellent carers and timely observation reports for parents. The carers were also very willing to be sounding boards for new ideas to develop a child’s learning. The closing time of 6.30pm was a huge help and Nicholas learnt to eat vegetables whilst at Ely! We will miss everyone and leave with very fond memories.

Rebecca Kendall 10th Sep 2015 – We have been really happy at Ely and we are very sad to say ‘Goodbye’. The warm, caring, friendly and loving staff are what makes the nursery so special. They truly seem to care about Zac and that’s worth its weight in gold. Parents are encouraged to be actively involved and we receive regular updates about the child’s progress. Thank you for everything!

Natalia Zeleney 24th Jul 2015 - We were very impressed in the kindness shown by the teachers and also how they taught the kids to be independent in many tasks.

Lucia Jemma 18th Jun 2015 - We are really happy with our move to Sydney. This city is amazing and it's a good chance for Federico to have a great future. However we always think about Ely. We miss you and even though Federico’s childcare is good, it will be really hard to find a place full of love and passion like Ely. I am attaching some pictures of Fede so you can see how he's growing!

Kate Holton 4th Jun 2015 – The Ely staff create a really lovely atmosphere and there is always a lot of communication with parents. There are a wide range of activities and resources available. Joe has learnt so much from Ely and we will miss you all very much.

Sarah Holmes 15th May 2015 – Ely is a friendly, warm and welcoming nursery. The management and staff at Ely are always very kind and friendly. I loved the way they welcomed Leo and made him feel happy and settled. There is also a fantastic range of vegetarian food to try!

Asli Jamil 19th Mar 2015 – Tymel started when he was 8 months old. I didn’t know how he would react with all the new faces but he settled in so well. The Red room staff are the best! They have great interaction with the kids and regularly take them on local outings. I am so thankful to all the staff at Ely nursery.

Yulduz Ali Omar 20th Sep 2014 – I am so happy that Haryad attended Ely nursery as he has learnt how to share and has developed a good sense of discipline. I am particularly grateful to June and Sharina for all their input.

Lynette Yaduat  21st Jul 2014 - Dear Sat & Staff of ELY, My special thanks to you and your team for the wonderful job you all do at ELY Nursery! I would like to express my appreciation for your hard work and dedication of staff while looking after Zechariah and making his experience at ELY nursery special and full of fun and learning. The level of service that you provide is outstanding and provides a caring, warm and inspiring environment for young ones to develop in. The staff are always polite, friendly and helpful and show genuine concern for Zechariah in his learning and development. While he has been at the nursery he has learned the alphabet, improved his counting and developed his co-ordination with drawing, coloring and painting - the evidence of this is the countless paintings and drawings I have with no more space to store it! I commend you on the good level of communication from and between staff. The update I receive when I collect Zechariah has allowed me to feel included in all that has gone on through his day at nursery. As a working parent it is extremely important to have confidence and trust in the people that care for your child for many hours of the day and I am grateful that the relationship I have with staff has allowed me to have peace of mind when leaving Zechariah in your care knowing he is in safe hands. All of you have been a great support and have made our experience at ELY nursery a joy. Zechariah has loved it and I’m sure he will never forget his time with you and will miss you all.

Gilli Erez 19th Jul 2014 - Tamar has had a splendid time at Ely nursery, and we are sure she will miss it very much! From her first day onwards she was always happy to come to nursery, where she was welcomed with smiles and cuddles (and flattering comments about her hair!) She enjoyed each day and always had many joyful stories to tell when she came home.  Tamar has made many friends at Ely, and has already asked to see them again in September. Even if she doesn’t, we will always remember her first love (who had crowned her as the most beautiful girl he’s ever seen!) A special thank you to all the warm and caring staff who were always free and happy to cuddle, comfort and have a laugh with. They have made Tamar’s time away from home just as we would have liked it, and we are truly grateful for this! Tamar’s time at Ely nursery has definitely made her well prepared for reception, to which she is looking forward. 

Vicki Watkins 23rd Jun 2014 – Ely is a fantastic nursery. The health and safety is excellent and the staff are always very friendly and easy to approach. James was very well looked after and I felt comfortable leaving him every morning. I was extremely pleased with the wide range of toys and equipment and James loved the nutritious and varied lunch time meals that were offered. James really came out of his shell during his time at Ely and my only regret was not starting him earlier! Thank you to all the wonderful staff, particularly June and Sharina who are amazing! James will really miss being here.

Chetna Patel 14th Feb 2014 – We feel the nursery is a safe and secure place to leave Bela. The staff are very friendly and nurture the children with patience.

Leon and Cemre Meade 8th Jan 2014 – It is very evident that so much detail goes into the care for each individual child. I have never felt so happy when leaving my child as the Ely staff are so caring and loving. We love the health food provided and Kiana eats things at Ely that she would not at home. Christmas was magical and Ely always makes all events and festivals very special. We are also very grateful to Ely for developing great social skills for Kiana.

Stef Carpenter 17th Dec 2013 – We’re so glad that we chose Ely as Molly’s nursery as we could not be any happier with the quality of care that she receives during her time at the nursery. She is happy and excited to be dropped off in the morning and has formed such good relationships with all the staff she is content to go to anyone that opens the door as all the staff know her. I’m grateful to all your staff for making my return to work such a smooth transition; knowing that Molly is happy is a massive load off my mind.

Jonasz Ostrowska 17th Oct 2013 – Weronika was attending Ely nursery three days per week. Throughout the entire time she was there, we did not pay a penny! This means we did not pay for fees, food, drink, nappies, etc, as she was entirely funded through the 3 and 4 year old government grant scheme. We found the Ely nursery staff were always professional and sensitive to the care of the children. The atmosphere is fun and friendly and we found the management and owners are highly organised and easily approachable. We had great fun on the day trip to Willows farm last month. Sadly we are having to leave as we will be moving back to Poland.

Emma Collins 4th Oct 2013 – The Ely staff are always friendly very caring and there is always a warm atmosphere in the rooms. Evie loved the food and still talks about it when we go to collect her sister Lucy!

Hedieh Terghini 23 Aug 2013 – We found the Ely staff to be very kind and approachable. The outdoor area is great, and the nursery is flexible with drop-off's and pick-up's. The food offered is fresh and healthy. Lyna really enjoyed her time at Ely nursery. Thanks for everything!

Gali and Jonathan Cochavi-Ronen 11th Jul 2013 – We left Ely because we are moving back to Israel. The best things we liked about Ely were the staff, the atmosphere and attitude to Ahinoam, the facilities, and the flexibility (We can change the days when we want to from time to time).

Elaine Cutler 6th Jun 2013 – We were extremely happy with the care and attention that Charlie received at Ely. The staff are caring and show genuine interest in the children. They are also friendly, flexible and creative. The daily activities and routines are excellent. There is always a lovely atmosphere at Ely and we would highly recommend the nursery.

Sigrid Klein 23rd May 2013 – Even though Leon only attended 3 mornings per week, we found the staff to be caring, approachable and communicative. The nursery is very clean and well organised providing fresh vegetarian food every day. We particularly loved the warmth provided by the ‘non-chain’ character of the setting in a converted house.

Deepa Gosalia 7th Mar 2013 – (left to go on maternity leave). What we loved most about Ely was the warmth and support from the staff and the encouragement and love given to Mahi in her development process. All a parent wants is to leave their child at a nursery without needing to worry about anything. Ely's staff are great and they have lots of fun activities to keep a child entertained throughout the day. 

Victoria Andrews 17th Jan 2013 – Mary-Jane has thoroughly enjoyed her time at ELY. The staff are friendly, welcoming, and genuinely care about each individual child. The food is varied and nutritious. The activities are excellent and the parties and themes make it an exciting place to go to. I would happily recommend ELY nursery to everyone.

Kirstie Burgin 2nd Sep 2012 – Evie has developed as a well-rounded child with the skilled support of the staff. She has felt loved, secure and stimulated by a wide range of activities. We have been happy in the knowledge that the staff were genuinely interested in our daughter's development. (Evie and Magdalena both joined in August 2010. Magdalena still attends Ely)

Mandy Strelitz 7th Aug 2012 There is something truly magical about Ely nursery! The staff are all so loving and this atmosphere transcends to the nursery. Amongst a million other things, Matti has recently learnt about friendship thanks to Ely. At Matti’s and Tami’s previous nursery, we felt that both children were also loved and cared for but there was no ‘community feeling’ like there is at Ely.

Jonny and Tamara 19th Sep 2011 - Ely  has been a wonderful experience for Oren. He has loved the staff, his new friends and all the toys. From our perspective he's learnt to be more confident, more verbal and more sociable. We found the staff to be warm and loving with a genuine affection and interest in our child, for which we are hugely grateful. You’ve also been so flexible with additional days etc and we’ve enjoyed getting to know you all. We'll all miss Ely and wish you success for the future.

Sasha Frieze 7 Aug 2011 -  I want to thank you, Sharina, all the girls in Amber room and the whole Ely team for nurturing and looking after Joshie so well. He has loved every minute he's been at Ely

Russell Platt 7th Jul 2011 - Ely nursery has helped give Lola the perfect start in life. The staff have been nothing short of perfect for the 3 1/2 years Lola has been there. It is sad that Lola is finally leaving and we would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the care and all the fun times she has been given. We will always be happy to recommend Ely nursery to anyone.

Nick Morley 15th Jun 2010 - Many thanks for being so accommodative with my shift pattern. I am grateful for your kindness, flexibility, helpfulness of management (Sharina) and friendliness and warmth shown by all the staff.

Heather Johnson 2nd Sep 2009 - Ely has been Harriet’s extended home and family and she is constantly asking when she will be going to Ely’s. I need the recipes as Harriet will not eat my food in preference of Nita’s cooking. Thank you to all for looking after her and we hope to see you all at half terms, teachers training days and snow school closures snow!

Nada Pantelides 28th Aug 2009 - We have been very happy with Ely Nursery. Small groups, very friendly and professional staff. Raphael has made tremendous progress and it’s all thanks to the professional and friendly staff. We will very readily recommend Ely Nursery to any parents.

Marion Smith 8th Jul 2009 –Very friendly welcoming staff, safe environment and good communication between nursery and parents. Erin has been very happy at Ely. Knowing I was leaving Erin in a safe and friendly environment made my day at work easier to contend with.

Andrew and Marysia Henty 28th Apr 2009 - The staff are clearly the strength of the nursery. Caring and friendly family atmosphere and interaction with staff and children from all the rooms. You select/recruit very well. We are particularly happy with the broad range of ages and cultures and mix of young and not so young! Ely is brilliant!

Judith Williams 24th Aug 2008 - The staff are caring and committed, especially Sharina. The owner is great! Staff are a mix of mature and young. We have been really happy with Ely and appreciate the wonderful attention and care given to our three children. We hope to give Avital (number four) the same experience soon. You have a well organised and thoughtful nursery and we will gladly recommend you to anyone.

Dr Tabinda J Burney 7th Sep 2005 - I can’t praise this place enough! Really happy memories of Carol, Marie, Su and Anika to name a few. Very warm and loving towards Alvira. Excellent, capable and friendly staff. Always a pleasure to interact with particularly Bettina who’s and absolute gem! Good facilities, varied activities, safe, clean, stimulating environment for our child. It was an ideal starting place for my daughter who’s really blossomed into a bright, confident child. Thank you Ely!

Joshua 10th May 2005 - Thank you to all the staff particularly Daniella, Pam, Bettina, Annika, and Katie. A wide variety of activities was provided and daily information sheets that were given out were very useful. We also liked the vegetarian food that was provided.

Lucy and Steven Ramsey-Brooks 7th Mar 2005 - Good atmosphere and environment. Both children have been very happy, especially when Lizzy moved to green room. Thank you for allowing this before age 3 and thank you to members of staff Pam and Carol.

Nadia Gurney-Randall 6th Feb 2005 - Super nursery, super staff. Harry requires special needs (almost blind) which can only be met at a special needs school. Thank you to all of you for such care and attention. Hope that Harry can come back during holiday times.

Joanna 5th Nov 2004 - Thank you for looking after Kyle. After his term here I feel he is now more settled around other people and that I can move him to a school nursery without any worries. The staff were always smiling when they greeted us in the morning.

Mrs. Kemi Olagbegi 20th Jul 2004 - My daughter Toluwani appeared to be happy and always not wanting to leave when I pick her up! The type of food she was getting was fantastic and I could see that she had regular nappy changes. Keep up the good work. It is great to see my child motivated with the different activities she was engaged in. she undoubtedly found them all stimulating and challenging. When we return from Germany next year she will return.

Natasha Bajoo 16th Jul 2004 - Everything about Ely nursery is great. In my opinion it is the best nursery in Barnet! We receive daily sheets at the end of the day that tell us what our children have been doing in the nursery. The food is absolutely great and management and teachers are good.

Adele Skelton 16th Aug 2003 - If the situation at work changes we will be back. Marni has really enjoyed her time at Ely and has certainly become independent and confident. She is always happy to be left off in the morning and always happy when I pick her up. The daily report sheet is a very good idea. I know she has been looked after very well. Thank you for everything.

Alex Quinata-Appiah 30th Jul 2003 - The three best things are the equipment, daily child records and attitude of the staff. Before attending Ely, Shanice could not form a single sentence. In 8 months her speech has improved tremendously.

Nadia Gurney-Randall 16th Jul 2003
- Thank you for a wonderfully warm, friendly child oriented atmosphere created by staff and environment. Thank you for providing Olivia with a wonderfully happy start to the school. The staff are just fantastic and so caring. I look forward to Harry joining you soon.

Nevena Kirilov 17th Mar 2003 - I would like to stress that my overall impression is particularly good. The staff were fantastic and made my child feel welcome. He could not speak a word of English when he joined and now he not only understands English but has also made good friends at the nursery.
