What Our Families are Saying
We are so happy we decided to send Will and Ava to you! Ava loves coming every day, I was worried she might be bored this year as she was probably ready for school but you are doing great things and she talks so fondly of all staff and activities.
We loved the homely of the setting, e.g. children wearing slippers inside, the feeling of the building as a house has been maintained even though the rooms are used differently. Also, as we are parents of a baby, it was important to us that it was a small community in the baby setting, and knowing that she should be sharing the room with no more than 8 other children was really reassuring. Also when we have met with and chatted to the staff we have always had warm and friendly responses, and it’s clear that the staff care deeply for our daughter.
We originally chose Sarah’s Ark for our first child due to the flexibility of your offer -term time and part days etc and even more importantly as we just got the right feeling when we came to visit. We felt that the nursery was homely and that the staff were all pleasant and welcoming. After coming to visit (we had already visited one) we didn’t need to see any other settings and signed him up. When we found out we were expecting our second child we didn’t even have to think about signing him up to Sarah’s ark and have even ensured that he continue to attend(even if only for a couple of sessions) whilst I have not been working due to the difference that you made to our fist little boy. Now that I am rejoining the workforce we have already been in touch about increasing his hours and you responded quickly and with a flexible approach. I don’t feel as guilty about returning to work knowing what fantastic care you give and how much Harvey will learn for you as he increases his hours in the near future.
I feel that you are always happy to listen to the children’s needs and also just really understand all the children and their families in the setting – Thank you, you are all fantastic!
