Wickham Primary Pre-School is fantastic.
Manager and staff are really organised and build a really good relationship between the Pre-school the children and their family.
They all the time set up news activities to help the children to grow up while they are playing (summer water fun, painting, Christmas nativity, cooking, gardening ....)
They give you the opportunity to bring a pack lunch from home or choose a meal from school.
I really appreciate that they are open from 8am to 5.30pm is was really useful to us.
Highly recommend this Pre-school!

Thank you for such a lovely review.

We have found Wickham Pre School to be outstanding. Mrs Wood is an incredible manager, so organised, supportive, open and fantastic with the children and full of great ideas. My son has loved his key worker who has built a great relationship with and will miss very much. He cannot wait to go in everyday and has grown in confidence. He loved seeing the ducks hatch recently and always talks about things he has done. There is always something new and of interest for the kids. He loves his hot lunch delivered from the school. Their extended hours until 5.30pm have been very useful and they have a great relationship with the school for a smooth transition. But most importantly he is always happy at Pre School. All the staff are extremely professional, definitely recommend this setting.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments Tina. We have really enjoyed our time with you both xx

Our little boy absolutely loves going to Wickham Pre-School . Ever since he started the school in 2014 his speech and vocabulary was improving each day. He is always happy to go to school and keeps asking if he can stay longer each day. The staff is extremely enthusiastic, always smiling, happy and chatty. I personally can not praise them engouh , every single time I got stuck at work ( I'm a community carea and quite often on a short notice I had to stay longer at work ) they were a helping hand to me. On each day they have an amazing activities for children to get involved in, whether is digging dinosaurs out of the ice or looking at creepy crawlers or making fantastic keep sakes , painting, baking and many many more ?.

Thank you so much Maria, it means so much to us when the children enjoy themselves and we are always happy to help out if we can.

Both my sons have attended here since they opened and can not rate them highly enough!

My youngest son has been going to them since January 2015 and has really improved tremendously thanks to the hard work and commitment the staff put in to help him with his needs. My son has a global development delay and I can not fault the support and help the staff have provided us as a family with his speech and general needs. He loves going to preschool and really has come along so much with his development and I couldn't thank the staff enough for their input in that.

My son absolutely loves going to school, always comes back with new words and his ability to build sentences since he started the school it's just amazing. I personally love the fact, that every day , they have a story time.The staff is always smiling and happy to help , even at the drop of a hat. Brilliant pre-school.
