What parents say about us

July 2023 “We’re sad that the St Philip’s Marsh phase of our lives has come to an end.  The enriching, nurturing environment that you have created feels really special and we have loved being part of your community.  The whole feel we get from the nursery is one of positivity and happiness.  Both of our daughters have thrived with you.  They have felt safe and loved and thoroughly enjoyed the stimulating and varied experiences you have provided them.  So THANK YOU so very much for your care and the hugely positive impact you have had on our family.  We’ll miss you.

July 2023 “After 5 years its time for us to say goodbye!  We cannot thank you enough for the care and support you’ve shown the children and us as a family!  You guys are amazing and make such a difference to these little people’s lives.  St Philip’s Marsh will always be special to us.”

July 2022Thank so much for everything… I would not have considered sending … anywhere else.  You are all so fab and the children are always at the centre of what you do.  I knew it was a super special place that I wanted my children to go to when I visited … I know I’m not alone in this.  Everyone I know who has sent their child here has raved about how wonderful it is . Not only do you bring joy, excitement and wonder to the children but you are warm, welcoming, caring and friendly to their adults too!

I have been overwhelmed at times with the support … and all of us as a family has received.  Thank you!

Couldn’t have asked for a better school/team of people!  So accommodating, friendly and nothing is too much trouble.  Very efficient staffing from nursery helpers right through to the head teacher, they have helped our child thrive!  Couldn’t give enough stars!  Will be missed when our son moves on.

Congratulations to Mr Holmes, … and all the other staff on providing such a wonderful nursery and amazing environment for children to learn“.

Hugely warm and welcoming – all staff – and by creating a fun, exciting learning environment where I feel totally confident leaving …

Nursery has provided a group of people who support me in what I am trying to do for the family“.

The Nursery School has provided an excellent foundation for structure/learning in preparation for infant school.  Both our children have enjoyed their time at St Philip’s and have very fond memories.  Simple disciplines of sharing, planning and daily routine of school are key teaching from their time at school.  The school is a safe, caring environment that has excellent resources.  The outside area is a particular hit which the children love.  All the staff have great school ethos and staff are exceptional.  Thank you all so much – our time at school has been amazing.  Keep up the fantastic school environment you have created.

Nursery has had an amazing positive effect on ….  He has developed his confidence, independence, concentration and has enjoyed learning through play with all of the varied, exciting activities.  He has developed friendships and learnt to play with other children.  He is always excited coming to Nursery and feels safe and secure here.   He has been encouraged to try new things and when he does then his confidence has soared.  … has been on an amazing journey and we are so grateful for all the effort from the teachers and assistants at Nursery.
