Don’t take our word for it! This is what our children & parents have to say…

“Forest Row Community Pre-school has been incredible for my son, and for me as a mom. It is the best of both worlds: as small community school with caring, knowledgeable and intelligent staff that is truly ingrained in the community, yet they also use technology and educational tools to help parents stay informed on the children’s’ progress and development (and fun!).

My son has cystic fibrosis and the school has gone above and beyond to make sure the environment is right for his health and they communicate regularly with me if there is any risk with other children’s illnesses. They made a point to learn about cystic fibrosis and meet his nurse specialist.

I have been incredibly impressed with activities they do – it’s not just finger painting any more! They go to the store, the post office, the recycling center and the community playground. They’ve just begun incorporating activities with a local senior’s group and the inter-generational contact is awesome and so good for all involved.

We are so lucky to have a Pre-school of this caliber in our community. Keep up the amazing work you are doing educating the next generation. Thank you!” HY-B

“Thank you all so much for your hard work and dedication. Aaron has had a fantastic time since he started at Pre-school. He has experienced many wonderful activities and learnt so much. We are extremely grateful to each of you for your input and care.” ST

“Thank you for the wonderful time Tomos has had at Pre-school. It is a lovely setting and that is all down to the staff. He has been really happy and you have made a heap of difference to his confidence and readiness for big school.” LC

“Thank you everyone for how you have taken care and looked after Betsy. She really enjoyed Pre-school, so much that she’d rather come to you than go to the beach with her big sister! We can see from her learning journey that she has developed & progressed but most importantly for us she has had so much fun along the way. Thank you again.” NP

“Thank you so much for all the support that you give Ben. Knowing that he is happy and being cared for well is a huge relief!” JH

“You have been absolutely fabulous. Thank you!” CB
