Comments from New Starter Questionnaire January 2022
Such a lovely setting and staff who couldn’t be more helpful or caring towards the children and parents
The care provided is above and beyond. A family for all and a base for mindfulness learning.
I’m very happy with the care my son receives and he is very happy always to go in
I can’t express enough how happy I am with the pre school, I feel like my child is so loved and as a anxious parent the staff also make me feel at ease
The hard work and dedication from every member of staff that goes into pre school is incredible and I feel very lucky that my son is attending.
My child absolutely loves attending and the parent consultation was really useful. You all work incredibly hard and obviously care a lot for the children in your care, we feel lucky to send our child to you!
My son enjoys his time with you all. He seems to be settled and always comes home tired out and a bit muddy! He loves bringing crafts home.
They are all doing an amazing job considering what the staff, children and families have had to endure in the last 18 months due to COVID – well done! Keep up the positive spirit!
I notice things daily that my child learns it’s fascinating
I feel very good with all the staff and the care I receive and the support they give us.
The effort of home visits and the opportunity to join our child for a settling visit was really appreciated
Made me feel very secure as if I was leaving my child with a family member or best friend.
Praise for our social media presence
Love being able to see my daughter in action, makes me feel so proud seeing photos of her
I love the up to date content regarding what new things are happening in preschool, and the community interaction with the posts.
Seeing a glimpse into the day/week of learning our little ones have had.
Very informative and it’s nice to be able to talk to my son about what you have been doing.
In depth info on what they have done and what they will be doing. Aids conversation at home.
The blog and gallery are helpful to see what’s offered at preschool but the parents consultation and learning journey will tell me how my child is developing and progressing.

Feedback from parent questionnaires
“The settling in process was great, we all feel involved as a family – my child was made to feel very welcome and loves coming to pre-school.
I found the settling in process excellent, keyworker and all staff are very reassuring for child and parents.
Keyworker was amazing with my child when she started having a wobble in the mornings which quickly solved the problem.
My son was happy overall with the nursery settling and the staff friendliness. He likes to talk about his days at nursery and seems happy/satisfied when he is in there. The parents evening was brilliant and I had all my questions answered
We found settling in great. Our keyworker has done a great job comforting our child on her first few sessions and she now goes in really eager and with no trouble or tears
I found the settling in and new parents evening to be really good, very informative.”
