Both of my daughters have attended St Helen’s pre-school. My eldest is now in primary school and my youngest joined in March 2021. I really cannot fault the care that St Helen’s provides. From the moment we arrive at the door we are always greeted with a warm welcome and a smile. It’s been a strange couple of years with lots of changes throughout the pandemic but I know the staff and management have done everything possible to keep the children safe and with as much routine and structure as possible. I get regular updates either in person at pick up time and using the online portal. The setting is always clean and there’s a great range or toys, crafts, and learning materials. It has everything that my daughter needs and wants to make her day enjoyable and she always comes home happy. It really is a fantastic pre-school and I’m very grateful for the care and support they’ve given both of my daughters.

I wanted to email you to give some feedback/compliment on how impressed I have been with the support that Alfred has had settling in to pre school over the past few weeks. I have always thought St Helens is a lovely environment for the little ones but I have been very impressed with how sensitive and thoughtful Kate has been with Alfred – yesterday in particular she was fantastic with him and had made a story sack which I thought was incredibly thoughtful. Please pass on my compliments I’m very happy and reassured to know Alfred is in such good hands!!

A few comments from our recent parent questionnaire, July 2021.
The preschool overall is amazing and VERY child-centered, they provide support and activities to help and encourage the children to be engaged and part of the preschool community. As parents, we are extremely grateful for the provision you have given our daughter – the support and nurturing has gone above and beyond our expectations and we will always look back on her pre-school days fondly. THANKYOU!
Outstanding, I couldn’t be happier. Gemma in particular has had a really positive impact on both my girls and each and every one of your ladies goes above and beyond to keep the children safe, happy and feel comfortable.
Amazing, just amazing! We have been to a variety of settings over the years (two nurseries) and I can say 100% my child has been supported far better than in any setting we have used.
I honestly couldn’t fault the preschool at all, it is an amazing place for the children to develop and grow with wonderful supporting staff. Any issues or changes are dealt with quickly and clearly which over the last year with COVID has been very much needed and appreciated.
Just keep up the great work you are doing! The child-centered approach deployed at St Helen’s is unique and provides such a nurturing environment that is tailored to each and every child. You really provide an amazing environment for our young explorers which enables them not only to grow, but flourish into confident children that are as ready as they possibly could be for school.
