    • Thank you so much for always being so understanding and looking after my child. Now have a really good couple of years rest before I send double trouble to you.

    • Thank you so much for taking care of my child the past 3 years, but not only for that for helping him become a part of the nursery. It’s felt hard at times with reviews; health visitors, speech therapists etc. but you’ve always helped us through it, Take care I know my child will miss you all.

    • The hardest thing for parents is finding the best nursery/school for their child. I can honestly say without a doubt we sent my child to the best nursery. My child has been so well looked after and has learned so much from all of you. Thank you all so much, take care and I will see you soon.

    • You are all ‘AMAZING’, thank you for always being there for my child and giving him such an incredible journey in pre-school. See you soon with number 2.

    • Thank you for all being so kind and caring. I appreciate everything you’ve done for my child and preparing him for school. From his 2 years at pre-school I’ve noticed a great improvement in his speech, confidence and independence.
