Fantastic! Rated 5 out of 5
My daughter has been in Penguins for a year and a half. She absolutely loves it. The team are wonderful, supportive and friendly. My daughter has learnt a lot but has had so much fun in the process she doesn’t even know she’s learning. Such a relaxed atmosphere. Thoroughly recommend it. Submitted 04/07/2019

Brilliant Rated 5 out of 5
Amazing preschool Rated 5 out of 5
Both of my boys have attended this preschool and I wouldn't be able to sing their praises loud enough. My eldest , with autism, was offered so much support during his time at penguins. He made so much progress in his speech and understanding while he was there and I couldn't think the staff enough for the amazing effort and care they put into his progress. My youngest is currently still at the preschool and he loves being able to play and explore, hes really developed his social skills well with the other children and and never ever wants to leave. Theres such a family feel from the minute you walk through the door, and the staff are so welcoming and friendly and really supportive with any concerns or questions you hav about your child and local schools in the area when it comes to choosing your childs primary school Would highly highly recommend !
Amazing staff Rated 5 out of 5
Charlie has been going to this nursery since he was 2, he has progressed really well thanks to the fantastic staff with their understanding of special needs. He loves all the staff and children and cant wait to get through the door! I love that there are 5 members of staff compared to only 2 or 3 other places and they manage more children. Here I know Charlie is heard, they give time and attention to every child.
Gem of a pre-school!! Rated 5 out of 5
My daughter started this pre-school when she was nearly 2.5 years, she absolutely loves it!! The staff were very supportive, kind and caring when she started and have continued to be. My daughter talks about it a lot and always comes out beaming with smiles when i collect her, excited to tell me all about her day. The staff are wonderful, their support, care and teaching is exceptional. My daughter is learning brilliantly and has a lot of fun in the process. I'm so happy I found this gem of a pre-school.
Fantastic in everyway Rated 5 out of 5
My little girl attends the pre-school and she can't get enough of it. She's made lots of friends,has grown in confidence and academically come on leaps and bounds. The team at penguins are like family, they are so close to all the children and can't do enough for them. I cant rate them highly enough.
Amazing nursery Rated 5 out of 5
My daughter joinee the nursery in January she gas always been very clingy and never wanted to leave me so taking her nursery was hard but i new deep down she was ready for the first few weeks she was so upset and heart broken about going in but after a while soon settled i was always welcome to call to make sure she had settle which she always did in time! My little one took a shine to debbie and would only allow debbie to change her nappy and it was never push that someone else did because they all care for each child individually the care the children get is on another level nothing is to much trouble and the staff are always there to help my little girl now loves going to "Debbies house" thats what she calls it and asks to go everyday! amazing team amazing nursery
