Parent Testimonials

"Nursery staff have been very supportive of her and have proactively sought to integrate parents and professionals views into her nursery experience. In particular her feeding has come along so much and she really enjoys her food. It is so nice to see her involved in group activities and making friends. We really appreciate her being able to use her wizzybug at nursery and her skills using this have clearly progressed. Her key person is so passionate and enthusiastic and deserves great credit for the progress and enjoyment that she gets from nursery. Many thanks." Parent Questionnaire July 2019
