Bright Stars Nursery Ltd

79 Southbury Rd, Enfield EN1 1PJ, UK – 020 8342 2138

As for the nursery itself i would give it 5 stars. The staff are lovely and always focusses the children first in their practice. However when it comes to staff im not to sure. Some re really lovely for example the boss Nikki. However others are abit rude and make you feel like your a disapointment for makjng a tiny mistake. I was a practitioner in this nursery and loved it there the first year. The second year however had its ups and downs. I was taken out of the setting due to major work needing to be complete and for my mental welfare because I suffer from depression. I have gotten alot better now but at the time it was hard and when i tried my best. And when i make mistakes i like to be corrected. However I hated the fact i was always laughed at and judged by a certain 2 people for making a tiny mistake. For example needing help finding a certain child's peg

Two of my kids are currently attending. They love it and we love it too. Food is great and always home made. Activities are varied. And staff are lovely with the kids, engaging and always able to listen and take feedback on board.

Kidz Village

39 Tysoe Ave, Enfield EN3 6DZ, UK – 020 8804 5066

During the period my son went to Kidz village (for about a year - from the age of about 9 months) the growth and development I saw in him was quite remarkable. The team there do a fantastic job, and we were kept in the loop about what was going on with my son various times in a day through the baby's days app and email. Safety wise, we were able to trust the team there. All our concerns were taken care of. They are really nice and friendly people bringing a warm and close knit family feel. I would 100% recommend it.🤙

My son will be 3 years old this month February 2017 and he has been going to Kidz Village since he was 9 months old.. I am so greatful to my colleague who recommended this nursery to me. The staff are incredibly nice to the kids. It give me a sense of joy and its really impressive that the kids are all so well mannered which is a major plus for me. My son is developed well beyond his years and in most part its due to the dedication of the staff at the Nursery. On a typical day he picked up at approximately 8:00am, he loves the ride with his little friends. There is a great play area at the Nursery and a brilliant online diary created daily that each parent can log on anywhere with their own secure password. The diary gives a full account of your childs day right from the games they played how your child fitted in the game, what he ate, how many times he was changed, photos that you can download of your child and lots more. This gives me as parent a sense of peace and comfort as I am able to comment and express my views. I would recommend the nursery to family and friends my son and I are happy with the services offered and the staff are genuinely nice and friendly.

Highlands School

148 Worlds End Ln, London N21 1QQ, UK – 020 8370 1100

Eh this school is ok, but the teachers really need to sort out the year 11's cause on training day they go and beat up everyone, and some bullying goes on too and some of the school meals are meh but yeah, i made some really good friends on the other hand so yeah, mans got friends

People badly need to be reminded that this school is good only in comparison with the majority of schools in Enfield, which are absolutely appalling. It's very much a case of the one-eyed man in the kingdom of the blind. It should also be remembered that this was once an International Baccalaureate Diploma school: the gold standard world wide, and much better than UK A-levels. It is a stinging indictment on both the quality of it's teachers, and the kind of students that this school takes, that Highlands regressed to offering A-levels instead. From what I can discern, the teaching at this school is not particularly good, and as for it's students, as a tutor, I have gotten the very strong impression that the majority of them are spoilt, mollycoddled and lazy.

Chace Community School

Churchbury Ln, Enfield EN1 3HQ, UK – 020 8363 7321

I go there and it is a brilliant school.The teachers are all nice there is no bullying and all the people that go to this school LOVE IT! When I first came to this school I was not very smart but now my scores have gone up a lot. So thank you for that Chace.

Just because these lousey donkeys (Mr.BrewTown) grew up going to school with no intention of enjoying the ritual, other than having perfectly matching black uniforms and good grades. They apply the same concept in 2018. A time where students need to show identity and experiment with style. But your kids will get slapped in the face with a big half an hour detention if they try wear traininers that define them. This school is bollocks. I remember back in 2016 Brewtown had a assembly about how his parents met in like the 40s because hes dad kept seeing his mum at a train station after work. He said in the assembly "If that were not to happen with my parents then I would not have been here". Firstly no one cared about that and secondly.. thats worse than hipsters in shorditch calling themselfs 'starving artists'. Mate this whole school is built on a hierachy system and you can feel the ego of these idiots as soon as you walk through them gates :D

Grange Park Prep School

Great school, fantastic teachers and high academic standard. Our daughters always enjoyed and still enjoy attending the school.

Not as well known as some of the other schools but don't let that fool you, a wonderful educational establishment for young girls. We moved our daughter there after a frustrating experience at her other school and the transformation has validated that decision. GPPS offers a nurturing yet focussed environment for children to learn and develop. I wholly recommend that prospective parents consider this school, you will be pleasantly surprised
