Nursery Teacher, Mrs Karen Shaw:
"The children currently attending the nursery class have settled extremely well. They are fast emerging as independent learners who are confident in their environment. Feedback from parents has been very positive and the smile on the children's faces as they arrive each morning confirms the class' success."
Parent, Mrs Heaton:
"The Nursery Class has been fantastic for our daughter. She settled in from day one, despite being a child who doesn't like change much, and has not looked back. A number of family members and friends have said they have seen such a difference in her, and how grown up she has become. She really enjoys the ballet class, and also likes being part of the assemblies with the rest of Beech House. It is great that she is learning the early stages of phonics, which is just one of the many skills they are being taught. I would highly recommend the new nursery class to anyone who asks."
Parent, Mrs Akiff
"Our boy has been attending Bolton School Nursery for just over a month now. We have seen a vast improvement in his attitude and behaviour whilst he has been here. Every week seems to be structured and the children have a specific topic that they concentrate on.
When he describes his nursery, he describes it as 'the best nursery in the world'. As a parent, I have seen a quick improvement since he has been here. He comes home and tells me everything that he has learnt, for example today we were discussing Indian spices such as cinnamon. He told me they were talking about it in nursery and also asked me which spice turns the rice yellow.
Our son previously attended a different nursery so when I compare his attitude now, there is a big difference; there definitely seems to be a lot more learning, which I believe is done through play. Another aspect of the nursery class I think is fantastic is the fact that we are kept up to date with what they are learning about each week. We are given a sheet with what they have been doing, which I keep in a folder for my safekeeping and also what they will be doing.
I know that our boy is very happy here, which makes his parents happy. So far, so good, keep up the brilliant work!"
