"Funmi is doing an outstanding job managing this nursery. The staff is caring, and they seem to be working well together. We can see a lot of initiatives both from the staff and the management, to involve parents and generate new interests for the kids. A lot of attention is given to communication with parents. The nursery is part of a big company, which can be felt in the procedures which are too heavy. However the staff work hard to retain friendliness and flexibility despite these constraints."
