My youngest child attended the Owl and Pussycat Pre-School from the age of 2. The staff were friendly and caring and I felt happy to leave my child in a safe and secure environment. He was always happy and willing to go. He is now at school and making very good progress a lot of which I feel is down to the staff at the Pre-School. I only wish my eldest child had gone here.
I would definitely recommend this Pre-School to anybody as my two children have both attended it and thoroughly enjoyed it.

The Owl and Pussycat Pre-School is a great place to send your child. It’s friendly, caring and welcoming nature makes it that little bit easier to leave your child, especially when they are a little less outgoing like my child. All the ‘Aunties’ go out their way to make sure your child is not only happy but achieving the best that they can. The outside and inside areas provide a lovely environment for children to learn in with a wide range of choices and activities to suit all children’s interests. The learning journey’s that every child has and gets to keep at the end of their time in Pre-School provide a brilliant record of their learning and discoveries and I feel really capture my child’s character.

In my experience the staff are professional, friendly, approachable and caring. They offer an extremely broad curriculum both through the stimulation indoor and outdoor environments and organised external visits such as Guide Dogs for the Blind, Fire Brigade, Creepy Crawlies etc. They successfully celebrate children’s individuality and use this specific knowledge to encourage children to learn. Whether your child is into nature, music, tractors or crafts, they utilise these areas of interest to inspire learning. I feel that my daughter was, and my son who still attends will be excellently prepared for school. The staff encourage the development of social skills such as interaction, turn-taking, sharing, co-operation, respect for others and positive self -esteem seamlessly through the daily activities. The expectation for behaviour, personal responsibility and independence is high and encouraged as soon as the children start. They learn the basics of counting and sounds to prepare them for school, but do so through interactive, contextual framework which is relevant and accessible to them. I would wholeheartedly recommend The Owl and Pussycat Pre-school.
