Testimonials

Lisa and Ian Bancroft

Dear Sir or Madam

We have recently made the difficult decision to enrol Ellis in Bruche Primary Pre School beginning January 3rd 2012. As Ellis will be attending this school when he reaches the appropriate age, my husband and I both felt that the transition to reception class and full time education would be made that much smoothly if we were to register him at pre-school with a lot of the friends he will eventually begin reception class with. Therefore we would like to give formal notice that the last day Ellis will be attending Kalgarth Grange Nursery will be Friday 30th December 2011.

Since Ellis has been in Kalgarth, with your staffs guidance, we have watched our son blossom and develop into a wonderfully well adjusted and gentle little boy who has a very close bond and friendship with his Child Practitioners Jane & Sara in the larger Pre-Prep room. Jane & Sara know Ellis so instinctively well, irrespective of Ellis only being in Kalgarth for 1 day each week, that Ellis constantly talks about them on an almost daily basis and very much looks forward to his day at nursery when he gets to spend all day with them. These two particular staff members have always shown the utmost professionalism and in-depth knowledge of our sons development, preferences and personality, which is so reassuring and they are an incredible asset to your team and I think very highly of each of these individuals. Between them they have guided our son in his personal development, knowledge and confidence and for what they have helped Ellis achieve over the years, we are truly thankful and appreciative. Please can you convey our heartfelt appreciation for all of their hard work.

Thank you again for providing such a wonderful Nursery environment for our Son, we will never hesitate in recommending Kalgarth to anyone requiring a safe and encouraging environment for their children.

Yours Sincerely

Lisa & Ian Bancroft

Dear Nursery,

I am really happy to say that we are so glad to have chose your nursery as we think the staff are lovely and have looked after our Jacob very well. I will recommend it to anybody who asks about it.

Thank you for everything you have done for us, especially Ellie who came to meetings and supported us with social services.

I am sure Jacob will miss you all very much.

Thanks again

We are massively impressed with the high quality of care that our son has received at kids academy Kalgarth Grange.

The staff care a great deal and consistently do a fantastic job. We would whole heartedly recommend the academy.

We chose Kalgarth Grange for a number of reasons. The staff are very approachable and always make time to discuss any issues or concerns I might have. Even the more junior/less experienced staff seem to genuinely care about the welfare of the children. The staff turnover seems quite low, which I feel is important to give the children security and continuity, but also for me as a parent, to have a piece of mind that staff know my child as an individual.

The management team are very accessible and are open to ideas and suggestions. Two of mine have been taken up!

Children are engaged in a wide variety of different activities and encouraged to participate but never forced to.

My child noticeably improved language skills within a few weeks of joining the Early Learners, and now tells us about her day over dinner, which is great.

The size of the rooms are larger than most, and we felt that our child would have freedom to express herself and not be too restricted.

Amanda Cooper

When I first visited Kalgarth Grange I could feel a positive, warm and welcoming atmosphere. The staff really enjoy their jobs and take pride in what they do. They make each child and parent feel like individuals. The setting is inspiring and really supports the children’s growth and enjoyment of the nursery.

Cheryl West

My two children have attended Kalgarth Grange for 18 months. I like the spacious accommodation and the outdoor play areas, both being very well equipped. The meals/snacks provided are nutritious and best of all my children eat everything whilst at nursery.

All members of staff/management team are friendly and professional.

My children enjoy going to nursery and are very happy being left in this environment, which is reassuring whilst I am at work.

I would have no hesitations in recommending Kalgarth Grange Nursery school.

Jackie Houghton

Our daughter started at Kalgarth Grange 8 months ago and enjoys every day. She has developed and become a lot more confident. She skips into nursery in the morning and is not always happy that I disrupt her fun at home time.

As a whole, the nursery has a homely feel where all the staff are warm and friendly. There is a traditional feel where everything is commemorated. The children sent 80 hand prints to the Queen on her recent birthday, everyone dressed in red and white for St Georges day and they all wore football kits for the World Cup day. In a few weeks there is a sports day coming up for children, staff and parents!

It is a hands on nursery with lots of activities. The staff are very involved, enthusiastic and genuinely care about the children.

There is even a pet rabbit ‘Gismo’ who my daughter loves and regularly talks about at home.

All in all, we couldn’t wish for a better environment for my daughter to spend at nursery.

Lindsey Trownson

I think, as a parent, feeling comfortable with the nursery is so important.

If I feel comfortable with the staff who are looking after Nathan, I don’t worry about him. I know my child and I know that he loves being at nursery.

Being at Kalgarth has brought Nathan on leaps and bounds. When I first went back to work after having Nathan I felt guilty that I was depriving him by not being with him, now I know that because I went back to work I gave Nathan his independence, confidence and most importantly his friends. When our second baby starts at Kalgarth in the New Year, I won’t be feeling guilty.
