Parent Testimonials
A Few Parent Comments about our Montessori Pre-School, Baby Rooms & Nursery
“Thanks to the fruit Tree Day Nursery & Montessori team my daughter was prepared over the last few months for her Prep school test and was one of 12 that secured a place out of 200 applicants, we are extremely grateful and recommend their services”
“Our son first came to Fruit Tree when he was seven and a half months old and we have been thrilled with the nursery. It is a well rounded, diverse place that is representative of the local area and offers all of the children an opportunity to learn in a positive, lively atmosphere. Our son (now two and a half) still often talks about “S” (his first care giver) who was knowledgeable, thoughtful and gentle (both to us as we acclimatised to the nursery / work routine and our son as he settled in!) We love the nursery and the staff and we would recommend it to anyone”
“V feels completely comfortable at the Fruit Tree Nursery and is always bubbly when we pick him up. Keep up your zest for the job, you are making a real difference for the Camberwell community”
“Working in local schools ourselves, we know full well the challenges of such a job and you appear to lead and manage things with true professionalism”
“One of the most important points of learning for H from the Nursery, during these younger years, has been his development of confidence/independence and learning how to treat others with kindness and respect”
“Thank you for always being willing to listen to us. Whenever we have had a question or query you have dealt with it in a timely and caring manner. An example of this has been listening and modifying meals to accommodate (C’s) numerous dietary/ allergy requirements. Not only has this been reassuring, it has enabled (C) to eat healthy, suitable, nutritious meals”
“thank you for doing your utmost to ensure (B) (and all the children) experiences are exciting and continually improving and developing in complexity as he grows older. We have watched with interest the activities (B) has had the opportunity to participate with”
“Staff have been very friendly and caring and (L) speaks fondly of the staff each day at home. He has made some great little friends too. This has been encouraged by expectations of how the children are to treat each other – which I’m sure must be a quality you look for in your staff”
