Below are comments and feedback which we have received from parents and other professionals involved in our setting
2 year old play sessions

My son and I love coming to the play sessions, there is so much for him to play with and interact with other children.  It is so good to come with him to the play sessions and see how the nursery is run.  There is a very calm atmosphere and the learn through play is excellent.  I am so impressed with this nursery, I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone.

Mrs O, Rainham.

My grandson has loved his play days and as a nan I can rest and have peace of mind to know that he is safe and will come on a treat in all areas.  I will miss coming when he starts for good.

Mrs B, Rainham

My daughter loves coming to play sessions it gives her the opportunity to get to the staff and the setting, ready for when she starts.  She is now confident in the routine and knows where the snack table and toilets are.  She loves playing with all the different toys and interacting with the children.  She joins in with all the activities on offer especially the art and craft.  I now feel really confident that she will settle quickly when she starts.

Mrs P, Rainham

My son has been coming to play sessions for 8 months.  His confidence has grown enormously.  He now plays and interacts with the other children more and knows the daily routines and teachers well. He is relaxed and happy at pre-school and knowing this makes me happy that leaving him on his own in september will be a smooth transition with no crying from either of us!

Mrs W, Rainham

My little one comes for play sessions and in his words "I don't like my big school I LOVE IT", he would come everyday.  The staff are geat with the children and the atmosphere is calm and an excellent environment for the children to learn and grow.

Ms M, Rainham

I have been attending play sessions with my son for ten months and I feel confident that when he attends alone he will be in great hands.  Parkwood Pre-School offers a service that seems to be unique amongst this type of facility.

Mrs H, Rainham

Two thoroughly enjoyable play sessions each week in a well-ordered, excellent learning environment.  Learning made fun and exciting.  Looking forward to the next session!  Staff are lovely.

Ms S, Rainham

My son loves coming to pre-school.It is a very fun and friendly environment with lots to do and learn.  It is teaching him to share and play with other children and getting him used to the routine of school life.

All of the staff are caring and I am happy that my son will learn and play and be happy during his time here

Mrs W, Rainham

The 2 year old play sessions are a wonderful opportunity for my daughter to gain confidence for starting pre-school. The staff are very welcoming and supportive and it is lovely to be able to learn the routines and expectations together. My daughter says 'pre-school is brilliant!'

Parents and Carers

Thank you to all the teachers who have made this time for my daughter so enjoyable.  She has had an amazing time learning how to identify numbers, letters and sounds.  She has loved coming to pre-school.
Ms L, Rainham

Thank you for every thing you have done for my son and us.  He has turned into a very confident little boy thanks to you and looks up to you all.  I could not have wished for him to be anywhere better.

Mrs W, Rainham

The staff were amazing in helping my son develop from a shy child with language problems to a confident, articulate team player.

Mr M, Rainham

'Thank you for making it such an enjoyable time for my daughter. She has never not wanted to come, that is an achievement for her. She has learnt so much. Thanks very much.'

Mr and Mrs B, Rainham

'I am 100% happy with how things are and what you do with the children and just wanted to thank you all. We are only a few weeks into the year but the whole transition of learning for my first child at pre-school has been helped by how lovely it is and how much ..... loves it.'

Mrs B, Rainham

'All three of my children have attended the pre-school and I have nothing but praise about the place. My girls all loved coming to their sessions and we've never had any complaints. All the staff are friendly and approachable and if I'm honest I'll miss coming when my daughter leaves for 'big school' next year :('

Holiday Club

My son enjoyed his days with you, he came home very happy and had lots to tell me.  He said he had lots of fun.

Mrs S, Rainham

........loves holiday club, he has now been enough times to know what to expect and really looks forward to it.  He came out of pre-school on the last day of term and the first thing he asked 'Is holiday club tomorrow?' He was disappointed he had to wait until after the weekend!!!

Mrs W, Rainham

Yes I feel it is a brilliant service, we will definitelybe putting her in again for holiday club. When asked ..... said 'we made pizza, we played outside, this is a fun nursery' This has given her the confidence in moving to this setting.  I would recommend this service from .... comments and how worn out she was, its a brilliant extended service.

Mrs B, Rainham

I would definitely recommend the holiday club particularly if your child struggles getting back into the pre-school/school routine after holiday break.

Miss S, Rainham

I would recommend the holiday club as it prepared....... well for starting pre-school on her own.  She is used to the environment, the teachers and the routines.

Other Professionals

'May we take this opportunity to thank you for your hospitality  this morning, it was an interesting and enjoyable experience for our students.  All students took away a better understanding of what an Early Years setting provides which I'm sure will help them immensely in their GCSE coursework.'

Mrs P, Teacher, Health and Social Care

'Thank you for giving our students the opportunity to be involved with both staff and children in your setting.  All had an amazing time and are still buzzing from their experience. It was wonderful to see them gaining confidence outside of the classroom'

Mrs B, Teacher Brompton Academy

'Thank you for allowing children to speak, discover, invent and dream in their own way.  Thank you for all your time, support and advice I have had such an inspirational and memorable time here at Parkwood Pre-School.'

Ms K, student  teacher

'The staff were all incredibly welcoming and open......

I was particularly inspired by seeing this truly child-initiated learning and how it benefits children.  The children at Parkwood show clear cognitive development and a level of understanding, responsibility and independence that children their age do not always have.'

Ms J, student teacher

'....On behalf of the centre I very much appreciate the inter-link work you have offered us and supported us through.'
