What Our Parents Say

Caring, energetic and organised. Our daughter was here for 13 months and adored her time. Not only lots of great activities, they have a real interest in developing the children in their care. The transition to Primary School was organised, thought through and understanding of the needs of our daughter.- Sam Moore
Both our children have attended Lavington Pre-school and we could not ask for more. The hard work and dedication of the staff and committee ensure it is a setting where children feel safe, secure and encouraged to 'learn through play'. Our son's transition to primary school this year has been a positive one and we are in no doubt that is testimony to the three happy years he spent at the pre-school.- Jo & Mark
