Parent Feedback

  • We have been very pleased and impressed by Little Bicks during the time our daughter has attended. She started at 18 months, having not settled particularly well at her previous nursery and has stayed until starting school. She was immediately at ease at Little Bicks, and her learning and development has really flourished under in their caring and nurturing environment. The staff are always willing to help in every way and we are so grateful to them all.

  • My daughter is so happy at Little Bicks. There's so many different activities engaging all the senses and helping develop lots of different areas of learning. She loves going outside, such a range of things to play with she also loves the food. It took my daughter a while to settle in due to her nervous nature, the staff were amazing with her and me, reassuring both of us lots everything will be ok, giving her the support she needed to build confidence. It certainly is an outstanding nursery!

  • Little Bicks is a warm and welcoming nursery, and my daughter thoroughly enjoys her time there. From the thought-out, creative activities, to the kind and enthusiastic people who look after the kids, we’re thoroughly happy with the nursery and definitely recommend it!

    Jolie Azouri
  • We adore the nursery. Audrey comes home everyday with a smile and thinks of the nursery staff as an extension of our family. Everyone is warm and caring and the days are planned out and well structured. I love how there is such an open dialogue so I know everything that goes on and can raise anything with the staff.

  • Little Bicks has been our son's first nursery experience, starting when he was just over 18 months old. It's been a strange experience due to COVID, but the nursery has been supportive by providing information about the staff in the classrooms when he first started and sharing photos of his days via the app. He looks forward to going to school in the mornings and always has a smile going in and coming out. He's also learned so much while there- his speech has come on loads and he's telling us things we've never taught him! It's definitely a fun, stimulating environment.

  • We absolutely love Little Bicks and know that both of our kids are being very well looked after, nurtured and taught there. We are delighted with the teaching methods that encourages the kids to be independent and have a thirst for learning.
    We are thrilled with the range of activities and the creative way that Jewish studies are built into the curriculum.
    The communication with the parents, including during lockdown, is excellent, with weekly emails, check-in calls over lockdown and their willingness to listen and then act on feedback provided.

    Amanda Dysch
  • My daughter absolutely loves coming to Little Bicks. She jumps up and down with excitement when I tell her at home "It's time to go to Little Bicks!". Little Bicks has stretched my daughter in her individual abilities and there is such a variety of different activities on offer, no two days are the same and when I come to collect my daughter she tells me with enthusiasm, all the different activities she has done that day and everything she has learnt.

    Rachel Lowy
  • With our second child now well on her way through the Little Bicks journey we couldn't be happier. She is engaged, learning, cared for and most importantly happy.
    The nursery always work with us to help her to grow and have been a hugely beneficial partner to us.

    Aimee Caplan
  • Both my daughters have been at Little Bicks and we have all absolutely loved it. My youngest who is currently there skips into nursery every morning and leaves with a beaming smile. We only have positive things to say about the nursery and it’s given my eldest a great start to her first year at school. 
    Lisa Fox
  • I am so happy we chose to send Zac to Little Bicks. It’s the most nurturing and stimulating nursery. The staff are amazing, and the activities they do are so creative and stimulating. Every day Zac is so excited to tell me all the different things he has done. Thank you all so much.
