My daughter started Whitchurch Under 5's in September and although admittedly this wasn't my first choice of pre-school, I can honestly say I am so glad she ended up here and wouldn't change it for the world if I had the chance.
As with most children at first she was a little shaky, but a few weeks in she loves going to pre-school and has really settled in and made new friends.
The Teachers are so welcoming & brilliant with the children, and I completely feel at ease leaving her for her sessions.
My daughter will be here for 2 years and I cannot wait to see the continuous improvements they are making to the decor and facilities of the building, as well as maintaining a great rapport with the parents as well as the children!
My son is now 13 but I still remember with fondness how well this charitable pre-school brought him on when he was a pupil.
I wish the state schools would bother to put in even half the effort into helping him nowadays, that the caring staff did in this pre-school.
My daughter Cassie started pre-school Sept 2011 and I just want to say how brilliant I have found the pre-school. I heard good feedback from parents of children who attended this pre-school, but it's only now my daughter attends that I realise how excellent it is run. All the teachers, especially Ms Sam, Ms Elaine and Ms Stacey are very welcoming, warm and friendly and make your child have fun by learning at the same time. My daughter has only been attending for 1 term but she really loves the school and I would strongly recommend any parent to send their child to Whitchurch Under 5's. Brilliant hard work by all the teachers and dinner staff!! Very pleased parent.
I was very impressed with the set up of Whitchurch Under Fives, from the outset, the professional staff interacted perfectly with my son, who settled very quickly as a result. The children are provided with great experiencing and varying activities both within the setting and out on local trips.
They are fabulous in developing early letter sounds and writing skills with children and by the time my son left pre-school he could write his own name. When starting school his learning has developed so quickly and I am certain this is due to the time and efforts of Whitchurch Under Fives.
I was initially surprised at how busy the setting was when the children all arrive together (very unlike a private nursery), however, this is part of what gave me the confidence that the setting are preparing our little ones for school, and my son is now in reception and I often wonder how he would have coped without the secure foundation that Whitchurch Under Fives have provided him.
Always willing to listen to any concerns you have over your child, and absolutely fabulous with the children. I can honestly say that my child loved his time here, and I loved bringing him, and it was sad to see him leave, but equally fab to know my younger son will be following him!! I can look forward to that now! See you again soon!
