“The ethos, standards and solid links with the primary school were what attracted us to this pre-school. Having left London, the activities delivered at forest school and in the charming garden on offer were very much a bonus for our active outdoorsy children. We have found that the friendships and learning acquired at preschool provide a head start for children to thrive in Year R and beyond.” 

“My son spent two-and-a-half happy years at the Micheldever and Stratton pre-school.  I can honestly say that he was excited to go to pre-school every day.  The setting is idyllic – both at the pre-school and at the Blackwood forest for forest school.  My son particularly enjoyed the forest school experience, which encouraged creativity, independence and teamwork.  The staff at the pre-school are fantastic!  They are caring and always interested in the children’s development, fostering a nurturing and safe atmosphere for the children.  I was amazed by the huge variety of activities and opportunities for creative play.  The teachers seem to have an endless source of inspiration for learning activities – all of which the children view simply as play.  My son has started “big school” with a positive attitude towards new friendships and learning, and I give the pre-school a huge amount of credit in this regard.” September 2017
