Testimonials

Happy children mean happy parents. See what our parents have to say about us.

“I just wanted to say thank you for making the arrangements for my daughter to return to Pre Prep with such short notice. She was so excited to go and came out beaming today, she had a wonderful first day back. Your staff member saw us walking up the drive this morning and came straight to the front door where she greeted her will the warmest welcome! She looked just as excited to see her as my daughter was to be there. Another staff member was also equally as lovely on collection. The way they are with my daughter has helped to cemented my decision for her to return to Pre Prep. I realise this isn’t just a strange time for the children but for the adults too so for them to make it all seem so normal didn’t go unnoticed and I was grateful today for that! We deliberated about when/if to send our daughter back but as ever she has surprised us and taken it all in her stride. I think we grown ups do the majority of worrying on their behalf.”

“I have always been very happy with The Old Barn Day Nursery and Pre-Prep. My son has been attending now for six months and he always loves his time here. The staff are friendly and welcoming, as well as very nurturing since moving to pre-prep. I have noticed how my son has progressed in his knowledge of numbers and his writing. The staff were also extremely helpful when my son was potty training and with their input, we managed it within a week with no stress at all.”

“My son loves Pre-Prep and asks to go when he isn’t there. He has come on leaps and bounds since going to The Old Barn in both his capabilities and confidence.

My son has made some lovely friends at Pre-Prep and his social skills are great thanks to him and his teachers. My son loves the excursions and sporty tots as well as the outdoor equipment. I couldn’t be happier with all the support my son has had at Pre-Prep and couldn’t recommend it enough to anyone I come across. I will be devastated when my son leaves in September for school, but also know that nowhere else could have better prepared him.”

“My daughter joined The Old Barn Pre-Prep in September 2019. We are welcomed by amazing staff members of lots of happy children. Previously my daughter had not attended nursery and this was overwhelming for us as a family however the transition from home to pre-prep was very smooth. My daughter loves coming to school and she has excelled in all aspects i.e. her confidence, communication, writing, learning in leaps and bounds. We can not recommend this place enough. The team are fantastic.”

“We are so delighted with The Old Barn. Our son has developed so much since he has been at Pre-Prep – his confidence, his language, reasoning, knowledge and listening skills have improved immeasurably. Perhaps what we are most thrilled about is his compassion and kindness which has been fostered by the outstanding team at The Old Barn. Thank you for all that you do!”

“We would highly recommend The Old Barn to friends and family and we are very happy and believe we made the right choice.” 

“A very warm and friendly environment. The lovely staff all ensured our daughter settled in quickly which was a relief. The amount of activities they do is brilliant, including cooking, visits out, making things and learning with play. The food choices are good, and it is excellent to be able to see in our child’s diary each day what she has done. Would recommend.”

“My child has transitioned really well into Pre-Prep and the staff are a big part of this, as are the excellent facilities. Her flair for craft and drawing has very much been expressed and she has enjoyed being with old and new friends. She often comes home with a new fact or learning and I love the fact she has a homework task each weekend. I really do think The Old Barn Pre-Prep has been excellent for her overall development thus far

“This place cannot be faulted! 

The staff are second to none, they make you feel so comfortable straight away.

My little one has come on in leaps and bounds since joining in April, it has brought her right out of her shell.”
