Re: Chelsea Westminster or Kingston Maternity hospitals (NHS)?

Hi- I used the C&W and would definitely recommend them. The regular check ups took place on time- although I can’t remember them being particular remarkable in any way. We also supplemented that with private check ups a few times but I don’t think that is necessary. My son was born with an infection...

Re: Parents of Boys at Eaton House - Advice?

Hi parrat- was it hard to find a spot at a private school at Y3 following a few years at state? Does it make sense to take this route vs starting at an independent school right from reception? We have a similar situation with another independent school so we would love your advice! Thank you in adva...

Re: École de Wix vs Belleville Webb's

Hi! My son got a place at Ecole de Wix (french section) last year and does speak french but we decided a curriculum which included more extra curricular activities closer to the British system would suit him better. In addition- they only have 2-3h English per week in the french section if I remembe...

Re: Kibou Japanese Hot Kitchen & Bar launches Click & Collect

Hi- I have tried ordering twice from your site- both times before 12. Each time when I check out- it asks me to choose another time slot but none of the alternatives work. So I have given up. Does your ordering system work and is there an alternative? Thank you

Re: Ecole du parc

Can’t recommend it more highly! My son is at the Stormont road one- and loves going there every day. Very nurturing, and lovely supportive staff. I wish they had a primary school as well!

Re: Anybody?! consultant recommendations: Lansdell

I was on the private wing for post natal care (booked a room there) and it was really good. The midwife very quickly realised my son had an infection, and because the excellent NHS neonatal centre is next door, he was restored to health after a few days there. I would highly recommend it.

Broomwood Hall or Eaton House the Manor?

Dear all, I would love some thoughts on the relative advantages of the two (I have a little boy), focusing on the academics, diversity of the parent base including which might have a higher proportion of working mums, and the holistic aspect of the education. Tips if any on the transition to Northco...

Re: Nurseries

Highly recommend the bright horizons just off Northcote road- my Little son went there from age 6m-1y but we had to transfer to the one next to Clapham Common as it was closer to the tube and is open until 630pm. I preferred the one near Northcote Road although both are good. I think this one has an...
