Our son joined nursery in September and has enjoyed every second. He skips happily into school each day and loves his class teachers and new friends. We have seen him develop in so many ways. in confidence, learning new concepts with letter and numbers, but also interacting in different environments and situations. He loves his PE lessons, the Forest School and so much more. he has settled with ease and all made better by the efforts of all staff. We couldn’t have asked for more!
