I'm keen to place my child at this childcare called Tots United at Braddell (Muswell Hill). I like the place alot, but I find there's usually few comments on childcares that are run in the private estates.
Personally, I did not have a good vibe about the place when I viewed it for my child 2 years ago. The only thing I liked were their generous space.
When the principal brought us for a tour, she was more concerned picking up the mess my child left when he fiddled with the materials. That action made me feel she was more into a neat perfect environement instead of child centredness. The teacher I saw was also rather military in gathering everyone in a straight line to eat. I'm surprised about such mannerisms coming from a MOntessori approach.
