PARENT COMMENTS - SUMMER 2023
I am very happy with my son’s experience at Nursery. He learnt so much, socialised more and I am happy because they helped my son to adapt to nursery and now he loves it.
It’s a great place for kids to start to explore and learn. I will definitely recommend St Stephen’s Nursery to other parents.
I am very happy with the Nursery. Curriculum days have been great and insightful to see what the children are learning and how to help them at home.
Staff are always available when needed and I have received good advice and support.
The staff are always smiling and use my home language to explain what is going on.
I love the Special Books and all the special moments that you capture throughout the year. The books celebrate everything she has done.
So emotional as her time has come to leave. The staff are amazing , they really engage with the children and make them feel safe.
PARENT COMMENTS - SUMMER 2022
My child absolutely loves nursery school. Nursery provides the stimulation she requires as she is very very active and very sociable. The teachers are all so lovely we will all feel very sad that it's coming to an end next month!
We cannot praise the nursery staff highly enough. They do fantastic work!
All staff have great knowledge about the children. Staff know children’s individual needs when working with them. Staff know when to push a child to encourage them to try something new and when it might be too much for them. Staff check in with families if the child has not been themselves. Staff remember conversations had with families from months ago so families feel what they’ve said is important. Amazing staff, a privilege for my child to attend this nursery :)
So far I am happy with what the school has to offer my child, he seems very settled and happy, no concerns.
Such a great nursery with wonderful teachers. The teachers are extremely friendly and professional. Definitely I made the right choice by choosing this place!
The learning in blue room is amazing! My child has progressed leaps and bounds.
We love St Stephen’s and we are really sad to leave.

PARENT COMMENTS – 2014
"Reya has improved a lot, she speaks very good English. She likes listening to story books which are read to her. She sometimes surprises us by using certain words like lets swap, felling bored, good at fixing things, fantastic etc. etc. she speaks about her friends at Nursery. Her school picture shows that she is very active and good at extra curriculum activities as well. I am very glad to say that her school live brought a lot of changes to her which all my family members appreciate especially her grandmother is very pleased with her. Thanking you,"

"I am very happy to see all Fatima activities. She is now more confident and she is good in sharing her toys, her books. I am really thankful to her teacher for her friendly behaviour. Thanks again."
"I am so pleased with Shalima’s improvement ever since she joined nursery. She has shown much improvement in her speech that now she can construct a full sentence in that one can understand quickly what she means. She loves writing and drawing and loves reading books. I am so impressed with the activities I have seen in her special book and I have taken note the areas she need to improve at and will do my bit at home to help her improve those areas at home and am so glad that she joins in with kids and actually takes time to concentrate on things she is doing. The fact that Shalimah looks forward to coming to Nursery each and every day gives me more confidence that she loves what she is doing at Nursery and speaks highly of her teachers all the time. She has a different story to tell me which is interesting because it shows she has a great relationship with her teacher and I would like to thank you all for your help and time you have put in.
P.S. Shalimah loves to sing and dance."
"It is great to see how my son Ayman is developing his learning skills in his school day by day. I firmly believe the school is doing an outstanding job to ensure Ayman is being well equipped and well trained to explore and face the future."

"To All Nursery Staff
We have seen Trisha doing all activities i.e. drawing, using remote, making food etc. that’s really good, it’s just because of all the staff effort. Thank you very much to giving attention to my Trisha. Also we can see the progress by Trisha doing lots of different activities at home, also her improving her English (use few sentences and words) which she was not using before. Once again thank you to all staff."

"We are very pleased with Rayhan’s progress. The range of activities he is participating in is very good. You guys are doing a great job! Thank you."
I would like to say that she improved now. She starts to speak English, little bit and she likes to draw always. She sings rhymes sometimes. Thanks for your effort and your support. Thank you so much."
I am very impressed with my son’s improvement at school, he is able to speak very clearly, sings rhymes and says numbers and alphabet. He clearly is able to identify things, analyse them and try to describe about them. I would like to see more pictures as it makes my whole family happy.
Thank you and kind regards"
