Fennies from Heaven
Based around South London, Fennies Under 5s Nursery is one of Croydon’s largest nursery chains; in December 2010, it welcomed a brand new nursery, Sanderstead, into its burgeoning group. The new establishment looks after 40 children and was created to replace the old nursery that had been on the same site for many years.
During a period of extensive change in which the nursery was partly knocked down and gutted, Fennies’ Operations Manager Nikki Reeve began looking for a company with which she could work closely and who could supply all of the indoor furniture and toys.
Nikki wanted the “Wow factor”, to create a wholly unique space that would be the envy of the neighbourhood. Drawn to eibe’s imaginative designs and the natural look and feel of the products, Nikki began consulting with her regional play consultant, Stuart Evans, as well as other relevant members of the eibe team in June of 2010, in order to ascertain the requirements of the nursery staff and children.
eibe created various rooms, including a new Baby Room and Pre School. Each was specifically tailored to the needs of the stakeholders and enhanced by an array of stunning, innovative products; alongside standard chairs and tables stood our unique and highly impactful Loft2Play climbing units.
eibe and Nikki worked tirelessly to best suit the needs of the nursery and its children. She was impressed by how eager the eibe staff were to help, and delighted with the results,
"The furniture we have in our setting from eibe is absolutely wonderful - the children love it; and the service we have received from the company has been excellent, especially from Stuart, who has liaised with me by phone, email and text to ensure that our order was correct and on time. eibe has a real personal touch and were available on the day to install much of the equipment. I would highly recommend them to anybody looking to furnish their setting with good, high quality equipment."
So happy were Fennies with how the project went, they felt confident to take the partnership with eibe on to a reference level. Similarly, eibe are very proud to now call Fennies Under 5’s our partners in the nursery sector.
