'A BIG thankyou to you all for being amazing throughout the hard times this year and for working so hard to make sure everything is super enjoyable for the children. I know IC will miss you! Thank-you for all your hard work, It really hasn't gone unnoticed!You and your team are fabulous and I'm so happy for the time IC had at Padbury and for the time JC has left there! You are all wonderful! Keep up the good work!'

'I can't believe what a huge difference my daughter has made since attending Padbury Pre-School. The support and kindness we have received from all the staff has been excellent.'

'Padbury Pre-School staff have given NB'S journey into education an extremely positive start. Utilizing his individual interests to help support his learning. Staff are friendly, welcoming and nurturing. We as parents were kept fully informed of NB'S learning journey through updates, work brought home or via communication from staff. Staff at the Pre-School were always approachable and made NB feel welcome from the start. He has thrived in this environment and we are extremely grateful to staff for the work they do. We would highly recommend this setting to anyone looking for a positive start to their child's learning journey.'


'Just wanted to say a massive thank-you to you and the whole team for looking after MB so well during his first year at Pre-School. He absolutely loves coming to school everyday and has really come on leaps and bounds since starting with you. You have all gone above and beyond to make sure that MB was developing and I have every confidence that he is receiving the best most personalized care with you. Thank-you for everything you have done in a very tricky year, it is appreciated!'

'My daughter has attended Padbury Pre-school since she was 2 and I cannot recommend the staff highly enough. I originally chose the Pre-school for my eldest son as I loved the smaller more personal environment as he was a much more quieter and shy child. Both my son and daughter have absolutely thrived here. The enthusiasm and care the staff provide is second to none. FB always bounds in with a smile on her face and is greeted in return with a huge smile from whichever member of the team is there to welcome her. Due to the Pre-school being on the school grounds they have a great relationship with the staff at the school and the children are so relaxed and comfortable when they move up to school. FB has learnt so much and has enjoyed growing and learning academically but as a little person she is encouraged and supported in being herself and has grown in confidence and character. I cannot thank the wonderful staff at Pre-school enough for being there and sharing her journey.'
