Parent Testimonials

"We are so glad our daughter KV started her journey with you. We found you by luck two years ago and it was the best luck we could have ever asked for. Your experienced staff, we cannot speak highly enough of and they are your greatest asset, they have really cared about our daughter's development. It has been great reading about K's progress and being kept up-to-date about K's daily her Key Person CP. We would recommend St Francis to anyone looking for pre-school childcare, we can't imagine there is a friendlier pre-school in the area!!! Thank you so much"  
"Just to say A HUGE THANKYOU!!!! J has had a fantastic time at St Francis, in such a warm, lovely environment. Don't ever change" 
"I cannot thank you enough for the brilliant job you do with the children. D has absolutely loved pre-school and he has learnt so much in this past year. I just wish I had found/tried the pre-school for my older daughters as I firmly believe St Francis is streets ahead of any other pre-school in the area.Thank you"

"I love everything about St. Francis! Most of all I love its openness, the way I feel informed about Sam's morning even though I'm not there. It's such a joy to read about his progress. The staff work so hard to see these little 2 1/4 year olds start off on the route to becoming kind and happy people. There are some fantastic resources that other pre-schools don't offer- live music, library books to take home, the freedom to play inside or out as they choose, which are all things I value. This is in addition to the usual arts and crafts, early maths and literacy, role play etc. The staff, who I can't speak highly enough of, are definitely the biggest asset - they're just wonderful and I really feel they care about my son and his development. I am so pleased that we made the decision to send Sam to St. Francis; there's no question where my daughter will be going! Now I tell everyone who asks (and some who don't!) how much I love it, and why I think their kids should go too.The reason? There's no friendlier pre-school around!"

"After a move to the area from Devon last April, and not knowing anyone, finding St Francis was a godsend. The Staff have not only made my 3 young children welcome, but have also made the move easier for me too. It is a wonderful setting with great facilities and a very caring team. They are all full of both enthusiasm and encouragement for the children's individual needs. Speaking as a mother of twins this is great. I would recommend St Francis to anyone looking for pre-school childcare."

"With all our hearts we want to thank you for all your help and care dedicated to K. We are very happy that we could give our child such a wonderful place full of LOVE. We wish you all he best"
