Parent Feedback

Click below to read through some of the great feedback we have received from parents and carers over the last couple of years.

Child A absolutely loves coming to nursery. You can tell when she has had an afternoon at nursery as when she comes home, she’s happy and settled because she’s had a lovely day. As parents, we feel she is very well looked after and enjoys the activities you do with her as shown on Tapestry. We would also like to say a massive thanks to the practitioners for being great key workers to Child A, we appreciate what you and all the staff do for her!

It’s always a hard choice when choosing a Pre-School for your child but Waltham Pre-School made the transition so easy and are very reassuring. Thank you to the amazing team for all you have done for Child F.

Child E has settled so well with you ladies. Her daddy and I cannot thank you enough. We are so sad to be leaving you. All the best, thank you again.

Child I has enjoyed attending Pre-School, she looks forward to attending. The support we have received for Child I has been exceptional for all the staff. Without the help of everyone at preschool, Child I would not have made the progress with her speech and communication as she has. We have had numerous meetings to ensure Child I received the best support to help her thrive. Child I will miss Pre-School however she will see the staff when she attends breakfast and after school clubs. As a family we would like to thank all the staff who have supported and advocated for Child I from baby room to Room 2. You all do an amazing job with all the children. Keep providing the support and what you all do on a daily basis. It means so much to us as a family that Child I had a safe environment to learn and thrive.

Child G has had a fantastic experience at Waltham Pre-School. His confidence has grown alone with his skills and language. It is lovely to see him making friends along the way.

Child H has had a thoroughly positive experience at Pre-School. She has loved attending and I really believe the Pre-School has brought Child H on and really helped with her confidence.

Thank you to all the staff for being so helpful and accommodating during times Child M has struggled. Also, a BIG thank you to the practitioners for all the cuddles they have given Child M and for being the Pre-School safe space she has sometimes needed.

Practitioners have always gone above and beyond to ensure Child E’s time at Pre-School has been fun and lots of memories have been made. Thank you for caring for Child E so well. All in Room 2 have become a part of our home life chat!

Child F loves coming to Pre-School. I really feel it has helped with her confidence as she was extremely shy when she first started, due to the pandemic and not being around anyone other than her mum, dad and brother.

We are very happy with Child H’s experience at Waltham Pre-School. Staff are approachable and lovely to talk to. Child H has always gone into Pre-School happy and come out happy. We love seeing the updates on Tapestry as she doesn’t always tell us what she has been up to. Thank you for everything you do. We know Child H is in safe hands.

Lovely Pre-School. Happy with the service received and staff are amazing.

Room 1 staff are amazing. Child L is so happy and is thriving. Thank you for the interventions you have done to support her speech. Child L loves coming to nursery and is enjoying all the activities! Thank you for all your hard work.

My daughter speaks fondly of her time in Pre-School. She loves the activities, and she has made so many friends. The staff are lovely, and I trust them 100%. All three of my children have attended Waltham Pre-School and I feel it has moulded them into the great children that they are today.

Thank you for helping Child T settle into nursery life and always understanding her needs and quirks. Communication is AMAZING!!! I was very anxious Child T starting nursery at only 9 months old but now it is a part of life that she enjoys, and I know this and there is no worry when she is there. Thank you.

We are really happy with the wonderful care Child I receives at nursery. I love getting Tapestry updates on what Child I has been doing each week. It always looks like there’s some exciting activity going on! I really like that there is lots of ‘messy play’ activities because I know that she doesn’t do so much of that at home. I do also like that it often mentions in her diary that she’s been reading books because I know that is something she really enjoys. The staff are taking her interests into account. Child I always tells me what songs she’s been singing on the way home which is lovely, and she’s even introduced me to a couple of songs I didn’t know! Big thank you to all the nursery!

Always happy, friendly staff and can see how much Child B enjoys going. I feel like I can relax knowing she’s being well looked after. Thank you!

Wonderful supportive staff that go above and beyond for the children’s needs.

Child F adores nursery, he has developed so much. I feel so comfortable knowing he is cared for while I am at work. Thank you!

Thank you for giving H the best start in her education journey.

N loves going to Waltham Pre-School and we are so pleased he goes there. The staff are lovely and great at keeping us informed of N’s day.

Nothing has been too much for O. He loves Pre-School. Fabulous transition done for starting school. All staff are friendly and helpful.

D’s time at the Pre-School has been the most positive experience I could have hoped for. The staff go above and beyond and I feel confident that D has been supported, encouraged and cared for. I really feel that when D tries something new or learns a new skill that the Pre-School are just as excited as I am. This is evidence of how much they care about him. All the staff really have created something special and we will very much miss you all.

E loves coming to Nursery and we never have to worry about leaving her. All teachers are lovely and helpful.

Completely happy with B’s time at Pre-school and cannot thank you all enough. He has learnt through his interests and enjoyed his time with you all.

O has settled very well at Waltham Pre-School and loves her morning cuddle when she first comes in. The staff have gone above and beyond for O and I cannot thank them enough. I love seeing all the photos on Tapestry and seeing what she gets up to. I feel O has made a lovely bond with her key person.

We love Waltham Pre-School. Tapestry is such a fantastic way to keep us in the know on how our child is doing and what they get up to.

S loves attending Pre-School. Staff have listened to our concerns regarding social development and delayed speech along with the SENCo have initiated a plan to help with S’ development. S has been nurtured and encouraged to grow at her own pace. Pre-School have worked closely with us as a family and other services to support S’ needs. A sincere heartfelt thank you to all of the team who have been involved in S’ continued development.

We are extremely grateful for the way in which Room 2 has allowed A to develop and progress over this last year. The structure in Room 2 along with the staff really allowed A to blossom within a school setting and find confidence within himself.

E loves coming to Pre-School. We can’t thank you all enough. He is very prepared for school thanks to you!

I am so happy with how E has progressed but also how happy she is and how well informed I feel about what she is doing and how she can do more. Wonderful experience.

Staff have gone above and beyond for E giving him such a wholesome start to his education journey. We really are so thankful for how fun staff have made Pre-School for him. You only have to talk to E about Pre-School and hear how happy it makes him. Thank you all.

R has settled in amazing at Nursery and loves the teachers. We love the diversity of activities he does every time he comes.

M has built brilliant relationships whilst at the Pre-School. The staff communicate well with parents and listen to their concerns offering advice and support. It has been lovely to see M grow into a kind and caring young girl. Thank you for your help!

We could not be happier with the provision for M. She loves school and is given the opportunity to develop and grow in a safe, loving environment. We are very happy with her key worker


It is not very often I am touched, but I have to say, the thought and warmth that has gone into H’s final days with you has overwhelmed me… I have never known such above and beyond commitment from a school…thank you from the bottom of my heart. (LAC Social Worker)

Since L started Nursery, he has come along so well. Everyone in the Nursery room is so lovely and are always so positive. I am very happy with the provision. (Parent)

C has settled in well to Room 1 and enjoys attending Pre-School. Staff make every effort to make C’s time there special and he has come home with certificates with his favourite superheroes which was a lovely touch. I feel that staff know C well had have been great helping him with his development and things like potty training. (Parent)

I would personally like to thank the Room 1 staff for looking after S so lovingly. I couldn’t have asked for better teachers! (Parent)

The Nursery staff are angels! (Parent)

I have been incredibly happy with the care my children have received at Waltham Pre-School. Both of my children have benefited massively from attending Pre-School regularly and being under the care of the practitioners has given them a fantastic start to their education. Thank you for the time and effort the staff have put into looking after A over the past two years. (Parent)

The staff are fantastic! They really know my baby’s needs and always support her. The communication is superb! I could not wish for better. Thank you for all you do! (Parent)

Second child in the Nursery setting and another fantastic experience! (Parent)

F has loved his time at the Pre-School, he has been here since he was 10 months old. I strongly believe he wouldn’t have developed and gained confidence like he has without coming. Staff in both rooms have helped and encouraged with his speech. He speaks highly of his teachers. You have all helped in him being ‘school ready’ and he will miss it. (Parent)

Brilliant Pre-School, amazing staff members. I always recommend it to people. (Parent)

We cannot thank you all enough for everything you have done for H. H loves school, all of his friends and his teachers. I know it will be sad for us all at home when H moves across to big school but I think he is ready and that is thanks to all of you. We will miss you all.

E loves coming to nursery and playing with his friends. He has had lots of lovely learning opportunities and is progressing very well. (Parent)

Waltham Pre-School has helped C grow and learn all the vital skills she needs to move onto Reception. she has loved every day spent here over the last two years and has some beautiful memories to take with her of the fantastic staff and fellow class mates C’s brother also attended in 2016 and the playgrounds and space keep getting more amazing as the years pass. Keep up all your fantastic work, Waltham really does appreciate it all. Thank you. (Parent)

Since A started to go to Nursery we knew we made the right decision choosing Waltham Pre-School. The activities that the teachers do daily, weekly, monthly is unbelievable. When I show pictures and videos to relatives and colleagues they are literally wowed how good you are. I love it, my child loves it and we are extremely happy with everything you do. (Parent)

My child loves her day with you, I am very grateful for the daily Tapestry updates. Thank you for your care for her. (Parent)

A huge thank you to you all at Waltham Pre-School. C has enjoyed his time with you over the last few years. All four of my children have gone through here and have fully enjoyed being there. What a great pleasure its been. I am sad C is my last child to come to such a great Pre-School and great staff over the 22 years I have used you. So a huge thank you from us all. (Parent)

Many thanks for all your hard work with C , he enjoys Pre-School and my wife and I both see positive benefits. (Parent)

The Room 1 staff have gone the extra mile in supporting D. They are always looking for new ideas to help support D’s development and I feel as if I am sending him to an extended family when he attends Nursery. This is down to the love and care these ladies show for him and I would recommend the nursery to anyone! (Parent)

My child enjoys attending Pre-School and I see the benefits every day. Staff are great! (Parent)
