"He enjoys St Mary's pre-school so much he even wants to go at the weekend. The staff really nourish the children as individuals, encouraging them to develop confidence and new skills. We have been particularly impressed with how kind and helpful the children are to each other. We feel fortunate that our son is having such a wonderful early years experience, the addition of Forest school has been a huge success too! "
"Two of my children have attended St Mary’s and have thoroughly enjoyed their time there. The staff are brilliant at making children feel settled and there are always fun things to do, from arts and crafts to baking to role-play. The huge garden is a real bonus and the children are encouraged to go out in all weathers if they want to - the wellies are kept by the door! Forest School for the older age group has been a real hit - my children have really enjoyed the camp fires, tree-climbing, marshmallow-toasting and outdoor crafts. There is also a lovely focus on learning through play at the Pre-school - my children have learned many new things, including some computer skills. I can’t recommend the Pre-school enough."
"We think that the pre-school and you guys are just amazing. Both my sons have thrived while attending and staff go above and beyond to accommodate childrens individual needs. Forest school is exceptional and I wish I could be 3 so I could attend too! "
"This pre-school setting is a nurturing place where my children are/were allowed to grow and explore and fill their imagination in an environment with amazing staff who have oodles of experience. My daughter doesn’t give me a second glance when I drop her off, she is instantly immersed in the fun things the pre-school have set out for the day."
