review of Pumpkin Patch - Nursery in Brighton
Excellent childcare + lots? of activities
My oldest son loved the nursery, he learnt about confidence, about sharing, about animals and nature. He loves books and that was the area where he would get to when we dropped him off in the morning, and with time he got more confident and more secure to engage in the other activities they were doing. When he left (almost five) he could write his name and many numbers 1 to 10. He could also count in Spanish and say some basic Spanish words. He was happy there, very happy. Excited about forest school, about the chicks they had in the garden, about the visit from the Booth museum. He did also two short courses of tennis lessons. It's definitely the place where my son could explore lots and lots of areas. I always received feedbacks and what I also really appreciated was the book Anita gave me at the end of the year. Full of pictures and notes and happy moments. What I think is that the staff encourage the children to learn through play, and that's great. Their mind is always questioning things.
My youngest son is there now, in pre-school. He started at two, and it was hard at first, for him and for me. He was not used to be without his mummy, not at all. But day by day it got better, I knew it would take some time. He received lots of cuddles and reassurance. He's at nursery two mornings a week and I'm happy to see him there, to leave him there, playing and learning and having fun.
I'm confident Anita and the other will do they best to help his phisical and emotional and social development.
