Some Of The wonderful things People Have Been Saying About Our Nursery

Dalia Osman, Hajar's mum

It is one of the best nursery schools in the area. The facility is well-equipped and the environment encourages learning and development. The teachers are so friendly and active at all times. They are very consistent in what they do. My daughter easily bonded with them and she does not want to miss a day. Now that she is about to join primary school, I can see that she has greatly developed. When she first joined the setting, she was so shy; she rarely spoke and she was so clingy to parents. Now she is confident. She can express herself clearly and she has become a lot more sociable. I can also see that she is independent in terms of self-care and organization, which is a great preparation for primary school. She has also developed an interest in learning numbers and phonics, thanks to the interesting curriculum and successful methodology that her teachers are following. They nursery encourages healthy eating and I could see that reflected on my daughter. She now knows what is good for her and what is not. I know leaving will not be easy for her, as she really loves her teachers and the place so much. I am seizing this opportunity to express my thanks to Miss Pam and her team and wish them all the best always.

Molly has thoroughly enjoyed her time at Orchid Montessori. She has had a fantastic start to school life, developing firm friendships and creating wonderful memories. Miss Pam and her dedicated team created such a calm and caring atmosphere that the transition from home to nursery was very smooth. Equally they worked hard to prepare Moly for school, both academically and socially. Orchid Montessori is truly a special place, and i have no hesitation in sending my son there once he is old enough."

My son was at the Orchid Montessori for just under two years and I would recommend this nursery to everyone.

I have been amazed at how he has developed since attending the nursery and I have been so proud of his achievements. He has learnt some French and his speech and manners are impeccable.

The wonderful, caring, loving teachers form such a beautiful but professional relationship with the children and keep their learning environment fun, yet calm and relaxed.

Ms Pam and all her staff are always approachable and able to give an in depth report on your child's development and behavior on demand.

I can truly say it saddened me when the time came for my son to leave.

The Orchid Montessori has given me and my son such confidence, which will stick with him through life.

I would like to say a huge thank you for all your hard work and great job that you all do

Kelsey has learned so much and thoroughly enjoyed being with you. I couldn't recommend your school higher, I think you do a fantastic job, and I will be sad to see Kelsy leave you.

Dear Miss Pam
I am writing to say thank you to you and your staff for the time and effort you have put into making my daughter's time at your nursery thoroughly enjoyable for my daughter and myself. As this is my first child going through the school process I was really apprehensive about leaving my child in someone else's care as she has only ever had myself looking after her. From the first day we attended your nursery the warmth and kindness from yourself and your staff made the parting so much easier. I must say as parents choosing your nursery environment has been the best choice we have ever made and we really feel we have given Emily the best start to her education that was available. from the first week at the nursery we found her counting on her fingers and that's something she learnt in the first week and every week since she has astounded us with all her knowledge. The most important thing she has learnt has been to be kind and consider her friends. I myself have made some really good friends through the nursery and I will continue to stay in touch with these people. as a nursery the many activities our children partake in the parents are always encouraged to join in and these have been such a great success and I do realize what hard work these events must be for you and your staff but as a parent they are enjoyable to watch. My daughter has learnt so much and has also gained so much confidence we didn't notice this until we took her yesterday to view her reception class and meet her teachers. After the teacher commented how confident she is, this is one word I wouldn't have used but on reflection you have provided her and prepared her for the school environment and this is something I couldn't have done without you. I could write for ages and tell you about all the new things we are learning from our daughter, just this morning we were woken up at 6am only to be told that a kangaroos baby is called a joey! Thanks for that. Once again miss Pam thank you for all your kindness and encouragement you have to shown Emily. I will miss bringing Emily to nursery just as much as Emily herself will miss coming. Thank you for making this step into schooling so much easier for us.
Good luck in the future.

It has been a pleasure & delight to send my son to the Orchid Montessori Nursery. My son is the last of 4 children and I have has much experience of nursery's be it negative or positive. I can safely say that there has never been any negative feelings or experiences. The nursery is a very professional, caring, attentive to children's and parent's needs, excellent with communication and is a welcoming, clean and safe environment for the children to play in. The staff appear to have good one-one relationships with each individual child. the nursery endorses healthy eating - providing a range of healthy eating snacks - and group eating, encouraging hand-washing and manners and politeness. My son has made lots of friends at the nursery and has thoroughly enjoyed his time playing and learning with Miss Pam and her staff - it has been a great start to his education!
