Here is a recent review from a local Reception class teacher…

“I was particularly struck with the outdoor play that was encouraged and that the children were learning the skills needed for school, such as fine motor skills, doing up buttons etc and that independence was encouraged around going to the toilet. I was delighted that there was not a strong focus on letters, which is for school, not preschool.  If I have a child, this is where I want them to go to preschool.”

And some recent reviews from parents…

‘We feel very fortunate to have found The Children’s Workshop for our two sons. All the staff are exceptional practitioners, going above and beyond to help our children settle and to make learning enjoyable. The play area is beautiful and the forest school is always a highlight.  The staff make it a priority to know each child’s interests and all indoor and outdoor activities are always creative and tailored thoughtfully.  Both our children have always left The Workshop happy and really excited to tell us what they’ve been doing and learning…and looking forward to what’s planned for the next session!’

‘We are delighted with the way our son (2.5 years) has settled into the Children’s Workshop. His days in the Buds room are action-packed with exciting discoveries. He is always talking about his new friends and singing the songs he has learned. It is absolutely wonderful to see him soaking it all up so happily.’

‘I am so happy with how quickly my daughter has settled into the Children’s Workshop. She really looks forward to her sessions, talking and singing songs about it, her friends and her key worker, whom she has bonded really well with. I love the small grouped class sizes and the large outdoor space and the special visits from the local deer are always a treat.’ 

‘My daughter was just 2 when she started at The Children’s Workshop. The setting is like a home from home, and the staff are so nurturing and friendly. She is so proud of her preschool and tells everyone that her key worker is her best friend.’

‘My daughter started attending The Children’s Workshop  when she was around 2 and a half years old. I was delighted by the warm reception we received on her first day in the Buds room. My daughter loves being outside, so The Children’s Workshop was a natural fit, together with its caring atmosphere and central location.’ 

‘My daughter has grown in confidence and knowledge.  She has loved coming to preschool.  You have made her a very happy girl and even given me a boost to potty train, which I am grateful for.  Thank you.’

‘We are absolutely delighted with The Children’s Workshop. Our older daughter benefited immensely from Saplings and was so well prepared for primary school that the transition was really smooth for her. Our younger daughter adores Buds and has so much fun and is thriving there due to the fantastic staff and the wonderful environment which makes the most of its fabulous setting. It’s a really special preschool.’
