A Wanstead nursery has scooped an award after parents rated it as one of the best daycares in London.

Little Bear’s on The Green nursery, in The Green, was ranked as one of the top 20 services in London by users of review site daynurseries.co.uk.

The nursery was handed an award by the website for the achievement, which has seen it fight of competition from almost 2,000 other nurseries across the capital to claim one of the top spots.

Little Bear’s on The Green founder, Shona O’Neil, said: “We are delighted that our nursery has received this prestigious award.

“The Little Bears team has worked to provide a top quality service for our children and families, it is great that this has been acknowledged by our families, who took time out of their day to provide feedback.”

The nursery provides care for up to 35 children at a time between the ages of three months and five years old.

Amanda Hopkins, reviews manager at daynurseries.co.uk, said: “We would like to congratulate Little Bear’s on The Green on being a top nursery in London, as rated by parents.

“It is such an achievement to be chosen as one of the best nurseries by the families and carers of the children that attend the setting.”
