  • "your flexibility and approach to family life isn't unnoticed and your genuine love and care for the children is outstanding, you should all be very proud!"
    Charlie Wright September 2018
  • "My little boy started at Little Spinnakers when he was 2 years old and from the minute he started the staff have always gone above and beyond to make him feel safe and comfortable. He is now almost 4 years old and still loves going to Little Spinnakers. The staff have helped him grow in confidence to the point that he even got to play the role of Joseph in the Pre-School nativity which he absolutely loved. The wide range of play equipment and learning resources along with the highly skilled staff have really allowed my little boy to excel and grow. I could not ask for anymore from a Pre-School and will be sad when the time comes and he has to leave"

  • "I cannot recommend Little Spinnakers Pre-School highly enough. From the moment my daughter started she has loved every single minute. The staff are always happy, welcoming and so enthusiastic. The children do something different everyday and I particularly love all their little outings around the local area. A truly wonderful pre-school"
