Does anyone have any experience (good or bad) or the Early Years Nursery (near Southover school) or Jigsaw at the YMCA off high street??
I need to book my baby in and would love any insider feedback.

Both my boys have been to Early Year Nursery since 2005, one is at school now, and the other is now in the family room at Early Years!!! All the staff are very nice and caring!! Yes its very expensive but u pay for the peace of mine tht yr child is safe and happy!! You get a day to day log of wht yr child done, even down to nappies! Ive had no problems with the nursery its very good! Its worth a visit!
However I do have friends who go to Jigsaw nursery and are very happy there too but can not comment as Ive never taken my children there!
Hope this helps!!

There's a nursery at the top of Bradford Road you could check out, and one in the Cliffe. The LA should have a list, or check out ESCC website.
Also don't forget that you can get childcare vouchers to help with the costs, I think post 3 years, everyone is entitled to about 15 hours a week free nursery care ? Unless, of course, the Tories have already cut it.....

My daughter goes to Jigsaw and she is quite happy there. However, I am considering Early Years for my son as it is convenient for where I work. One of the pluses of that one, is that you can park without fear of a ticket!

i took my boy to early years for a visit and was appalled to see a young lad there sobbing his heart out and was entirely ignored. then it was story time and he was still ignored. Then we left and didn't look back!!! Personally i am saddened to see the babies there. why have them if you know you cant afford them or will miss work so much you have to palm them off. my youngest sister was left in the care of others all day from two. she is 21 now and she cant let mum out of her sight without a run down on mums pending movements of the day. out of the 4 of us whom 3 of us had mum at home, she is the one who is unable to cope on her own. and no theres nothing mentally wrong as such, but i wouldn't leave my kids all day everyday. just in case there is a link!

instead of juggling the work/childcare ratio, why not simply embrace lewes culture a bit more and actually juggle your child.
dress the baby up in organic milk bottle-tops and juggle it.
providing you have a safe pair of hands and a decent sized straw hat in which to accept donations, i should imagine your problems will be solved quick-sharp.

Taw .. thanks for sharing your experience. That's pretty worrying .. about the crying child :-( I'm sure most people wouldn't put children in nursery so young if they didn't have to.
Re. I smell and so do you's post above ... ha ha. That's put a smile on my face :-)
