  • "Since my son started Pre-School, I have seen him grow in confidence. The staff take on my sons individual needs, showing such kindness and caring. He bounces into pre-school each morning, which is always such a welcoming, happy and smiley environment. As a parent I couldn't be happier with my little boy being part of such an amazing pre-school and recommend anyone who wants their children well looked after by kind, loving teachers in a happy environment"

  • "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"
    Louise Halford 2016
  • "My little boy feels so comfortable and settled so quickly. He was 3 months old when we went into the first Lockdown and his first birthday we were in the second so he really struggled in social setting and was never away from me. To see him so happy and confident already is such a relief!"
    Rhiannon Baretto 2022
