Comments about the staff at Pre-School:

Just want to say thank you for always going above and beyond even with helping talk to girls with issues at home eg nightmares and eating. Even through covid you’ve all kept it together and made it a safe while fun environment.

Staff have been excellent during covid and keeping our children safe and happy.

Fab staff

You have all done amazing, a big heart felt thank you for all your hard work and dedication.

It has been a tough time, but the staff have been amazing.


How do you feel about your child’s return to preschool after lockdown:

Amazing

Very clear, calm and professional

You have all done an excellent job

Excellent and very cautions with keeping the children in their bubbles

Brilliantly. It was reassuring to have the smaller bubbles and I had confidence in all the hygiene and safety measures.

Very reassuring

I think caroline did a great job organising the bubbles and communicating procedures. My son has been very happy with the changes and I feel this has not affected his learning and progress with the school.

Outstanding!!!! It was good for the twins to have some normal back into their lives. If anything the twins started to blossom more than ever when returning.

Brilliantly !!! she was not concerned due friendliness and normality from staff even though all measures were in place.

Preschool handed the return very well instilled some lifelong lessons on hygiene. (handwashing). The fun element was not lost. Felt very safe to send my daughter after lockdown.
