Lauren - October 2020

'I wanted to say a big thank you for helping me settle my child into preschool so sensitively! She's our pride and joy and so very precious to us and sending her to preschool always  seemed such a difficult thought. You all really helped me and her daddy feel better about it and reassure me that she is happy and confident at preschool which we are grateful for. We're super proud of how she is doing. Our child has settled in so well which I had no doubt that she would, she comes out very happy telling us about her day. Thank you for that. You all do a great job'.

'My son had came here for a year already now and he has loved every minute. The staff are so supportive and caring andI love that they have an open door policy. The groups are small and the key workers give excellent feedback to the parents abouut the children's progress.  Thank you to all the staff, you do an amazing job.'


'I love this preschool. My daughter made so much progress when she was there and my son is happy to go. He talks about his key worker all the time and asks to go on his days off.'


'My son started here when he was 2 and is now at big school, and I couldn't thank Briary Preschool enough for all they have done for him and myself. Wonderful staff and the setting really made him blossom and he misses them so much.' 


'I first started to use this preschool 10 years ago with my daughter and have continued to for all of my children, 4 in total. The staff are amazing and very dedicated. All of my children have developed beyond my expectations and have found transition to primary school, easy as a result of the staffs hard work. My youngest is on his last year here at present and his speah and confidence have improved so much, I remember when he first started he was clinging to me but the staff have all formed an amazing bond with him and can't be happier.'


'My son had a diagnosis of ASD and the preschool has been absolutely amazing with him. I couldn't ask for more from them. He can be a challenging child but the ladies at the nursery have been so supportive, I wouldn't want my son to go anywhere else. 


'All four of my children have attended this preschool, staff are so welcoming and friendly and my children have been extremely happy here. Wouldn't have wanted to send them anywhere else.

'We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Preschool. Particularly impressive was the range of different activities available to the children and the lead given by the play/ supervisions, who seemed in to interact very positively. R was very interested in building a bridge in the sand pit area, which is a good example of an activity which stimulates as opposed to being entertaining, one hour is probably about right. Would love to come again.'

'Thank you for a very enjoyable afternoon. It was lovely to be able to share this experience with A. He is obviously happy and well cared for at the Pre-School. When making jam tarts it was nice to see that he was encouraged to be independent and make his own decisions.'

'A very pleasant morning with our grandson in what felt like a friendly and safe environment. Good variety of activities, well supervised without being too restrictive. Length of stay was about right for us. T clearly loves it and so did we. Thank you.'

'I have really enjoyed my time at Briary Pre-school as a student. I have been to a few other nurseries/ preschool's and could not match my experience here to anywhere else. I have always felt welcomed and well supported in every aspect of my work and would describe the environment as warm, supportive and all inclusive! Having a consistent and communicative team throughout the preschool is key here at Briary Pre-School and I found this method keeps all children, students and staff well supported and positive. I would recommend Briary Pre-School to anyone.'

'I have enjoyed my time as a student at Briary Pre-school because all of the staff have been very supportive when I need help with anything, such as; when my assessor asks to come to assess me as part of my college course, all the staff are considerate of this and they support me with planning and completing the activities. The environment at Briary Pre-school  is very welcoming and nurturing. I have enjoyed becoming a part of the team and learning about all the children as individuals and their interests.'
