“Fledglings at the Palace is a wonderful nursery and we would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the nursery and team to any parents looking for a safe haven for their children. The location of FATP is utterly unique; hidden just inside the grounds of Fulham Palace, which quietly hogs the Southern end of Bishop’s Park in Fulham and runs adjacent to the Thames, the slightly ramshackle building is perfectly positioned. The true value of FATP is in the garden and in the people. The garden overflows with life and I think it unmatched in London in providing a daily outdoor experience for the kids in this way, the summers here are exceptional and this simple and fulfilling approach is a huge part of why all of the children always seem so happy. The team here are wonderful, unpretentious and funny, quietly excellent at all aspects of childcare, we were totally at ease from day 1 in leaving both of our children in their care. This is a nursery where these important early years are cherished and enhanced by a group of people who really care, where nothing is too much trouble and where your children will be so, so very happy every day. Thank you. “
'We couldn't of asked for more during our son's time at Fledglings and the support he has been given to become the great kid he is!
The whole team have gone that extra mile to help him develop and grow.
As 2 full time working parents, we would often get pangs of guilt at how much time H spent at nursery each week, but this was always made so much easier knowing how much he enjoyed coming to Fledglings and the quality of the people he was with and the environment he was in.
It really is a special place!
Thank you all so much'
'Our son has just finished up 2.5 years at Fledglings. He started with Fledglings in the ‘baby room’ and from early on I knew we’d made the right decision when choosing Fledglings as his nursery.
From early on, fledglings was a nurturing home-away-from home environment where our son thrived! I was always grateful that his days were consistent and balanced as this showed through in his behaviour and overall demeanor at home.
My son has grown up with familiar faces around him both in students and teachers. The lasting relationships he has made with teachers and friends is a further testament to the happy environment of the school.'
'I cannot believe it is already time to say goodbye! Thank you from the bottom or our hearts for being so wonderful, loving, kind, caring and inspiring. We can't begin to tell you how much we appreciate everything you have done and all the hard work. M LOVED his time at Fledglings. He was always happy and excited to go to school and cried when I came to pick him up.You have all been so FANTASTIC and we'll miss such an amazing team!!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!' M
'The biggest thank you to you all for your love, care and making K a very happy little girl.
I cannot believe its been 3 years when i nervously had to return to work. Since then K has grown up so much from walking, talking, feeding,toilet training and more.
We are beyond grateful for the care and nurturing you have provided. Fledglings will remain a big part of our lives and we will miss you all very much.' L&D
'We could not recommend Fledglings more highly. It had everything we could have possibly wanted and needed in a nursery for our daughter. The staff are extremely caring and enthusiastic and are led by an excellent, approachable and imaginative manager, who went out of her way to help us and our little one wherever and whenever possible. A was motivated, engaged and cared for in a way that shone through daily. Seeing her development and growth in confidence during her time at Fledglings gave my husband and myself immeasurable pleasure and we will be forever grateful for everyone's hard work and dedication during such an important time in our child's life.

'Fledglings at the Palace is the most amazing school! Our DS has been at the school for 2 years now and is so so happy. It is a loving, caring environment; most days my DS leaves the school with hugs and kisses from the staff. Summers at the school are the best, with the children playing outside for most of the day. The staff also go the extra mile for the children, giving up their weekends to celebrate Halloween, Royal Weddings etc. In a nutshell I couldn’t have asked for a better school for my DS.'
'You have all been beyond wonderful. The effort and love you give the kids is second to none and we think you are a team of very special Mary Poppins! Thank you for everything you do, you give the children so much happiness, and thats a real talent.' A&N
' When A came to Fledglings she couldn't walk, talk, dance, sing, love or laugh. Now she can do all those things. We are so very happy she had the benefit of your love, care and attention and in such a wonderful setting as Fulham Palace. We will miss you and know that A will speak of you often. We will never know completely the joys and wonder she experienced at nursery as they are her memories to treasure but we know as parents we always felt a lot of support and care from the team to us.
A heartfelt thank you for everything you have done for A and us as a family. We are forever indebited to you.' A&B
'Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for for being a home away from home for D. You have all been such a special part of his life and have greatly contibuted to the little boy he has grown up to be. I am so grateful for all the love and support you gave to him and to us all as a family. You can be so proud of the passionate and nuturing school you give to the children.' D&J
'We would like to thank you all for looking after our boys for the last year and a half. This has been a time of such happiness to them. They have learned and grown so much with your care and help. We will miss you all so much!' R&N
Thank you for being the best carers I could imagine for little W! He has changed so much from the shy little guy that started with you in the Wrens Room. It has been the most comforting thing in the world to know that your one is left in such brilliant hands. H & N
Our son has had such a wonderful time at Fledglings. We looked around several nurseries and Fledglings completely won us over from the start. We were so impressed with all of the staff and with their energy, dedication and enthusiasm. It was always a warm and welcoming place to leave him and there were so many things he loved - the amazing garden, the rabbits, the ducks, trips around the park and to the river, eating cake made using eggs from their own ducks, and lots and lots of singing! He has had great relationships with staff and other children, and had such fun playing and learning with them. NPH
It's been a pleasure to bring my little boy to your nursery and seeing him so happy and settled. Well done and keep up the excellent work! CI
We would like to thank you all for making A's experience such a memorable one! A has come on so much since being with you all. Thank you also for all the confidence you have given me as a new first time mum. SW
What an inspirational place this nursery is, full of ideas, fun and an exceptional place to live, learn and love. MD
Just returned from a visit to @fledglings1. What a wonderful setting, educational yet homely, an outside area to die for. Lucky little ones!
