"St James's Pre - School is a very special place. Not only is it outstanding from a learning and developmental perspective but it is also outstanding from a caring and nurturing perspective. All the staff are very dedicated to providing a safe and warm environment in which the children thrive. St James's has provided a wonderful start to our daughters' education, which will stand her in good stead for her future. With our thanks and best wishes."



"We have had two children attend the pre - school and have been delighted by their progress. We will have no hesitation in repeating it all again for our third child."



"We can’t recommend St James’s Pre – School highly enough. The staff have been fantastic in helping our daughter settle into pre – school by responding to her individual needs. The school has a really friendly and welcoming vibe and we know that when we drop our daughter off, she is not only being well looked after but having lots of fun too!"



"Both my boys have excelled since being at St James's. They absolutely love coming. The staff are supportive, knowledgeable and make everyday fun. It's such a caring environment, a space for children to flourish."

"The environment at St James’s Pre-School is lovely. My son really enjoys going and loves all the teachers! He even asks to go to ‘school’ on a Saturday! I’ll be very sad when he leaves to go onto big school, but rest assured he will be going with some lovely friends which he made here.”



“All three of my children have attended St James’s Pre – School. The staff have always been friendly and caring and the activities and learning experiences have always been to a high standard. My sons who are now in primary and secondary school, left St James’s with best friends that they still have today."



"The staff are amazing, very friendly and are wonderful with my four children. They are great when it comes to potty training. They give great advice and are on hand whenever we have any concerns. All four of my children love coming here."



"St James’s Pre – School has been great for my son. He has grown in confidence and has made some lovely friends. They really care and look after the kids and he loves his key worker Harriet.”



"Both of my children have been very happy at St James’s. I have always been very impressed with the kindness, knowledge and professionalism shown by their key worker. The observations and progress tracking is beautifully recorded. The folder parents receive of their child’s learning journey is a wonderful keepsake."



"My son absolutely loves St James's Pre-school. He always comes home with a smile on his face and a spring in his step. The Waterfield is his favourite. All the staff are wonderful."



"After our neighbours recommending St James’s Pre- School to us, we are really happy we chose this pre-school for our twins. They settled in quickly and are always happy to go. Their daily routine is clear and the activities are well prepared and varied. They enjoy both indoor play and outdoor play exploring the Waterfield. We are very impressed by the time and effort put in by the teachers and especially their keyworker, to tailored activities to their individual needs. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend St James’s to parents looking to choose a pre-school."


"St James's Pre-School is an amazing early years care provider, with very caring staff and excellent facilities including outdoor space. My children have blossomed since attending the pre - school."



"My son loves his teachers and his friends in his class. He looks forward to pre - school and is learning so much."



 "The experience of both my children at St James's has been very positive and enjoyable. During their time at pre-school, the support of their teachers/staff have contributed positively to their behaviours, attitudes and interactions with friends and staff. Children looking forward to 'going to school' can only be a positive thing for any parent!"



"All three of my children have attended St James's and we have been more than happy with their pre-school experience. It is very well organised school with lots of different play areas and friendly staff."



"Both my son and daughter have attended St James's Pre - School. We are very happy with the setting and staff there. My daughter is currently thriving and thoroughly enjoys the time she has there. It's very friendly and welcoming and they have a great variety of activities for the children to choose from. We highly recommend this pre-school to all parents seeking childcare."



"I'm glad I chose St James's Pre - School for my daughter. They made the transition into this new environment really easy for her as she is very shy. She now loves it there and is always excited to go to pre-school. She loves the teachers and Maggie. They provide a great variety of activities each week and it has been great to see my daughter growing in confidence especially over the past few months. Recently she's been learning about the human body, counting and loves reading stories with her teachers. We will be sad to leave when she starts school this September."
