"I am so pleased Miles was able to come to you for his pre school years. My eldest son had a wonderful time with you and I knew this would be the right place for Miles too.
Miles has learned so much and his confidence has grown enormously. It's as lovely to see him holding his pencil correctly as it is to know that Monkey can now be left at home and hand driers can be fun!
Thank you for caring for his brain and his heart. I think this is so important as the emphasis from the government is ever on targets.
It's reassuring to know from experience that your emphasis is our children and all their individual needs. I am so chuffed that Miles has come home wanting to write his name and interested in numbers but even more so that he is happy here, separated easily, is always outdoors, has willing help for his physical needs, chats about you all, loves his key worker, I could go on! We're both really looking forward to next year as Miles heads into Butterflies." J Osei, 2016
