My son has attended preschool since he was 2.5 years old. It took him a while to settle in he would always cry when I left, however I knew from the beginning that when I left I had nothing to worry about. The staff just took care of him and after a while it stopped. He absolutely loved his time at preschool. He thrived on the learning through play as he loves to be outside. I would not hesitate to recommend the preschool and cannot wait to see you all soon with our second little boy!
Our son has attended preschool for the last 2 years and we highly recommend it. We love it because the staff have become like family, not only for us but for other families, and this is recognised by the children and makes them feel at home whilst at Preschool. The learning through play approach and use of natural resources is excellent and the benefits are evident in the children's development - they don't realise it's a "lesson" as they are playing. The preschool is committee led and has lots of opportunities for parent/family involvement as you would choose. We find this really beneficial for all our family and in turn the children and staff at the preschool as it benefits from support and engagement outside of typical day care.
Our daughter has just graduated from the preschool and I struggle to put into words how wonderful it is.
All the staff are amazing it really feels like a second home. Every time she went she was welcomed with open arms and smiles. The outdoor space is brilliant, gives the children plenty of outdoor time. There are walks around Doddington, popping to the farm to meet lambs, school trips, grandparents days. You name it they do it. Very special memories have been made that will last forever.
My son attended this preschool since he first turned 3 years old right up until school age. He absolutely loved it here, he always went in with a big smile on his face and came out with an even bigger smile on his face. The staff are so down to earth and lovely, they really care about all the children and families! The activities they put on and do are amazing! The Learning through play approach and the resources they use are great for a child’s development. My son has progressed really well and learnt so many new things whilst being here. The preschool always have great opportunities and events on, which are great for all the family to get involved too! My son felt so at home at this preschool and he will miss everyone here. Definitely recommend to all my friends and family and hope to see you soon in the future!
My daughter has attended this preschool for 18 months. She settled well and was encouraged and supported effectively by the staff there. Her development and progress has been enhanced by the ethos of the wonderful setting. Their positive and thorough approach to learning through play has allowed her to reach her full potential. My daughter loves her time there and looks forward to going each morning.
My son started Preschool around this time last year. I have to say this preschool is the most amazing place for children to explore and develop. Oscar is such an outdoors boy and here the doors are always open which means he could free flow between what he wanted to do. The staff were so amazing, so friendly and caring. I am really going to miss taking him to preschool and am very sad that his last year was cut short by covid-19. 100% recommendation for this fantastic preschool!
Simply an amazing preschool.
Phoebe loved her time with you. Thanks to all your hard work, patience and dedication Phoebe left Preschool a totally different girl. She will miss you and so will we.
