Testimonials

‘I am absolutely delighted with the quality of care at Blackboys Pre-school. It is well-organized, the staff are professional, the garden area is delightful, but most importantly, my son settled in very quickly and is really happy there. There are a lovely bunch of children who he has formed good friendships with.’

‘Our son has settled here better than anywhere else. I don’t think you should change anything. I love the communication book, as it’s brilliant to know/see/read about what he has done. He seems really happy. Despite having attended another childcare setting since he was 7 months old, Blackboys Pre-school is the one he talks about the most. He loves the hamster, chickens, allotment and outdoor space. He seems to have bonded well with his key worker, other staff and has made friends. We’ve noticed an increased confidence in all aspects of his life since coming here. Thank you for providing such amazing childcare for him.’

‘Our daughter has flourished since joining Blackboys Pre-school. She is becoming a confident, well-rounded little girl who thoroughly enjoys attending and has developed and refined many new skills’

‘Since starting at Blackboys Pre-School, our son’s social and communication skills have improved even more. He comes away from each session very happy. We are very happy with the Pre-School and would certainly recommend it to others.’

‘We have been overwhelmed by the warmth and kindness shown from the staff. Our son has settled in really well and loves the Forest school element and the allotment. The Nativity show was brilliant to watch, with a lot of effort having been put in by the staff to ensure that the children and parents all had a wonderful time.’

‘If you are looking for a lovely pre-school where the staff are friendly, hard-working and dedicated then Blackboys Pre-school is the place. My son is in his final year and has been coming since he was 2 – he loves it. I have been over the moon with the care he has received and am very pleased with the standard of teaching given. The setting is great and there are always fun activities available for the children to take part in. My son’s favourite activity is going outside in the purpose-built garden to play on the trikes. The Committee are also very hard-working and have the best interests of the children at heart.’

‘We feel there is a very open, friendly and purposeful atmosphere and are impressed by the caring and professional approach of the staff. The environment and resources are excellent. We have appreciated the regular and specific feedback that we receive about our daughter, with the staff always available to discuss any concerns/issues.’

‘Blackboys Primary School has a flourishing relationship with the Pre-school. Liaison happens both formally and informally, with the Pre-school visiting the school regularly as part of their induction. As a result, the transition between the two has been straight forward. We hold the Pre-School in high regard and know they will have received a good grounding.’
-Mrs J F King, Executive Headteacher, Framfield and Blackboys CE Primary Schools

‘We are always delighted to receive children into school from Blackboys Pre-school. We find them eager, articulate and with a love of learning which propels them to success in our Reception class. Jenny and her team set the standard high and so children begin formal school with a working knowledge of phonics and a positive attitude to reading. The forest school element brings something special to Blackboys Pre-school as does the time and care staff put into those extra little touches like Nativity and Leavers Show.’
-Graham Sullivan, Head of School of Blackboys Church of England Primary School

‘I am always very impressed with the readiness and enthusiasm of the children coming up from Blackboys Pre-school. The children from this pre-school are always notably very independent, especially in self-care. It is clear, from the quality of the children’s work, that the hard working staff at the Pre-school encourage a real love for learning. The transition between pre-school and Reception always runs smoothly due to the strong links between both settings. It is clear how well the pre-school staff understand and know the individual children and they form such wonderful relationships with the children that attend the pre-school. There is always such a positive energy when I go and visit the setting. In the setting there are always excellent opportunities to further children’s learning with the use of excellent resources, equipment and fantastic outdoor play.’
-Miss Stevens, Reception Teacher, Blackboys Cof E School
