Some Testimonials From Happy Parents
It is with great pleasure that I write this testimonial for Little Shepherd Pre-School. Over the past 8 years I have had four children attend Little Shepherd and to say they have enjoyed their time there is an understatement. They have thrived in this environment. Rebecca and her wonderful staff make each and every child feel special and unique whilst providing them with the special and academic skills needed as they make the transition from pre-school to “Big School”. This is exactly what I as a parent want for my children.
The genuine affection and concern that the staff show the children at the centre truly makes Little Shepherd a child’s “home away from home”. I know it is rare to find a pre-school with all these outstanding qualities which is why I cannot recommend Little Shepherd enough to friends, family and anyone who wants a wonderful caring and nurturing learning environment for their child.
Our daughter has been attending Little Shepherd Pre-School for six months and she absolutely loves it! She would walk herself to Pre-School if she was able to. The teacher's friendly, nurturing and professional manner helped her settle into pre-school routines quickly. In the time that she has been attending, her skill in interpersonal relationships and communication has developed immensely.
She now happily shares with her peers and communicates her wants, needs and frustrations more effectively.Our daughter enjoys completing the fun, learning experiences and activities that are incorporated into the pre-school day and she is always made to feel very prud of what she has achieved.
Little Shepherd is a wonderful preschool with very personable, dedicated and caring staff. Both our children have learnt so much and developed as confident individuals since attending this centre.
It’s the extra quality care the preschool provides that makes it a special place. Such as when you arrive to collect your child the staff make time to tell you the little details about your child’s day – who they may have played with, new skills learnt and simply just the kind of day they have had.
Through the staff’s guidance and structured activities we have watched the confidence grow and important social skills develop in our children that they will need, in particular, as they progress through schooling life.
We cannot thank the staff enough for the wonderful experience they have provided for our children.
We are incredibly blessed to have our son attending Little Shepherd Pre School. As soon as you enter Little Shepherd each day you are greeted by such friendly, engaging and nurturing educators. They take the time to know each child and their families so that everyone is comfortable; the children and the parents!
Each day we hear stories from our son about the fun, adventures and learning that he has experienced; reinforced by the photos and stories that the educators share with us. Little Shepherd addresses the educational needs of each child as well as their emotional and social wellbeing. The children participate in programs and activities that encourage them to engage, question and analyse the world around them, enriching their lives and forming a love of learning.
Little Shepherd promotes a wonderful community spirit and we couldn’t speak more highly of this wonderful pre school.
To Whom it may concern,
My name is Denise and I am a mother of three children. All of my children have had the wonderful benefit of attending Little Shepherd Pre-School. Rebecca Gorman and the caring staff at this centre carry out their responsibilities in caring, nurturing and educating the children to a standard of excellence that I feel would not be easily found within the childcare industry.
Children are treated, without exception, with kindness and respect, each child is made to feel so valued and important. As a parent, I have always found the lines of communication between the staff at Little Shepherd and myself open at all times. My daughter has gained so much confidence during her time with Rebecca and the lovely carers- it is so wonderful to see her growing in confidence and I attribute much of this development to the way she is cared for and taught while at Little Shepherd. The level of care and dedication displayed by Rebecca and the staff is second to none.
I recommend Little Shepherd Preschool in the highest of terms.
