Parent Testimonials

"There are many things that we love about Playbox; friendly caring staff, but also the structure and discipline, lots of stimulating and varied activities; a small but perfectly formed outside area.

My daughter loves going to preschool and loves the interaction with her peers.

I feel the children are known well by the staff.

Its good to know how aware the staff are of your child's likes and dislikes, particularly when there are so many children attending the setting.

I love the extra activities - shadows was a favourite, ducklings, lambs, Monkey Music, frogspawn etc.


"The setting is amazing with lots of outdoor space. My child loves Playbox and is happy when he is here. Staff are very experienced and know my child well. I'm kept up to date with his progress and concerns are raised quickly.

Tapestry is great as my child loves showing me pictures of what he has been up to during the day.


"Our child has thrived at the setting, she asks to go on the days she doesn't attend, so obviously enjoys going! For her, being an only child, the interaction she has had with other children there is a vital part of her development"


"We have found Playbox to be a very caring and supportive pre-school. The staff have a natural ability to relate to children with varying needs. This gives each child the opportunity to flourish at their own pace.

The love and comfort that my child has been shown has supported him to access activities where he may have struggled.

The continuous programme of activities has kept our son interested and keen to return each day. He has particularly enjoyed the chicks, tadpoles and butterflies.

Tapestry has been an invaluable tool for putting my mnd at ease. Current information as it happens ensures I am aware of how he has settled each day"


"Both of my children have found the environment at Playbox to be warm, comfortable and engaging for them. Kindness shown by the small stable staff team is rare in this day and age and allows children to feel secure in their surroundings. It also gives parents the peace of mind that continuity of care is provided and children's individual needs are met"
