“I feel that I really have to speak about our experience at Checkendon Pre School. From the very beginning our Son has been made to feel so welcome. The environment is always very nurturing and caring. The Ladies really put so much effort into everything they do for the Children . From organising special Dance Classes to thoughtful Plays and events for Parents to enjoy. They really do make everyone feel special and part of a community. They patiently encourage good behaviour and social manners from a young age. We love the way the Children are invited to eat together and our Son has never come Home with a full Lunch Box!
I feel as though Checkendon is a home from home and I don’t need to worry about him whilst he is there. Kelly, Liz and Claire are like members of the Family now and we can always confide in them if we are worried about something or have any concern for our Son’s welfare. They’re always happy to offer advise and helpful tips! They are so flexible with hours and even Breakfast Club. It has made our life far less stressful with the relaxed, caring approach they adapt. I cannot recommend this Pre-School enough. I was reluctant in sending our Son to Nursery or Pre School early because he was my first Child. But I can honestly say that Checkendon Pre School is the most wonderful start for any Child. Our Daughter will be attending in  Autumn and we are looking forward to many more special memories being made”.

“Great pre school, my niece went and my daughter goes now. Both Kelly and Liz are wonderful ladies and have settled my daughter in wonderfully. She never wants to come home and cannot wait to go back in.”

“I have sent both of my children to the preschool and I can’t recommend the checkendon ladies enough. The ladies are so encouraging and really do care about every child that goes. The preschool have such a variety of things to do on a daily basis. Diddi dance is a favourite with my son and of course the cooking!”

“Just after my daughter’s 2nd birthday, I hesitantly decided to get back to the working full-time world which meant the daunting task of finding child care for my little girl. Well, just as I was about to sign the paper work for another nursery that I thought was good but not 100% what I was after and also had unsettling restrictions on hours that could be used for the 15hours free nursery funding (from 3yrs), I had another mother approach me and tell me about this little gem! She only had praise for them.

I couldn’t be happier! My daugher couldn’t be happier (she asks to go to school to see her Checkendon ladies at the weekend)! What a lovely little school and group of ladies that genuinely care about the children and go the extra mile to make them happy and are so accommodating and flexibile in real world situations. I am so pleased my baby gets this home from home experience (including cooking, dancing, and learning) and urge you, if you’re looking for somewhere you’d be happy to leave your child, to check them out! You won’t regret it!
Thank you ladies!”
