The following are testimonials from parents, visitor and child:

“Both my wife and I were very happy with our choice of Pre-school for our daughter, with its high level of care and its commitment to giving the children a safe and happy environment to develop within.”

“Having recently visited Rixton-with-Glazebrook Pre-school to deliver a safety talk, I was impressed with the atmosphere and the children’s speech and language skills. It was an enjoyable experience that I look forward to repeating next year.” (Community Nursery Nurse)

“I am keenly aware of the benefits of outdoor play and it was a pleasure to see my child enjoying vigorous physical activity. The children can play, explore and interact with the natural outdoors allowing them access to gardening, water, sand, insects and outdoor toys, not to mention fresh air.”

“I like running in the wind and getting wet in the puddles. I love going outside, I can go faster.” (4yr old)
