What our parents say...

My son started at Auden place in 2018 and stayed for a full 4 years until the day before he started school in 2022. Many of the staff who are there now in 2024, including the Nursery Manager, Nicola, have been there from when my son first started and I have no hesitation in recommending them all - my son has fond memories of their warmth, kindness and fun. My son greatly enjoyed weekly football, daily walks, forest school woodwork, music, dance and yoga sessions as well as all the trips they take the children on - to London Zoo, theatre performances, Chinatown, softplays and boat trips on the Thames. The staff helped my son become a very confident and independent little boy who can regulate his emotions well so he was more than ready for school. He had also been fed such high quality and varied food there that we had no worries about him ever being a fussy eater, which certainly would have been the case otherwise! He still talks about Mary’s yummy food now!

Thank you for looking after me in this wonderful place, with so much care and love. Auden Place is an absolutely magical place, we will take it and keep in our hearts forever as we are sure that Ilan couldn’t have had a better start in early childhood education.
Seeing Ilan happy every morning, ringing the bell and wanting to come in meant so much to us. He grew, he developed, he laughed, he cried, he saw, he learned, he was loved, cared for and had so much fun. We’ll miss you dearly and we will be forever grateful. Also a big thank you to the Management Committee and the kitchen team for lovingly working for our little one day after day.


Thank you so much for all you have done for us to help Bear enjoy his time at Auden Place. We will back to visit very soon.

Oona and Bear
