“My child has been welcomed at The Spanish Nursery with great happiness and care. He is happy to join in everyday and is growing in confidence, is keen to explore and learn about new interesting things every day."
I love to hear loads of stories about what my child said or did and I feel that her teacher really knows my child well and is genuinely interested in her and who she is as a person. I like the 1:1 meetings with the staff and it is notjust a box ticking exercise. I find the nursery staff genuine which is great.
