When looking for a suitable pre-school for my first born, Little Companions stood out from all the rest. The loving and nurturing environment made my daughter feel like she was home and picking her up with a smile every day reinforced the fact that I'd made the right choice. I would highly recommend Little Companions to all parents!
Amazing nursery with Dedicated staff
You have surpassed all the qualities that I value within an early years setting, providing an excellent and appropriate learning environment alongside dedicated and loving staff. A.B enjoyed his time with you very much and he is still asking when he can go back to see Naazish and Reema again. Thank you so much
Our youngest child has attended Little Companions since it opened, and both us and him are extremely happy with the nursery.
Our son loves the nursery and looks forward to attending every day, which must be a testament to the inviting and friendly nature of Little Companions.
The teaching staff and assistants are friendly and open, but firm when they need to be. Coupled with there informal nature and surroundings, it has meant our son has bonded well with a number of them, so much so that he now thinks of some as them as family.
From joining as a shy quiet boy, he naturally had reservations, however they helped him to settle in, and have now made him into a confident little boy who has an appetite to learn and express himself.
They regularly send updates on what the children will be tackling next, and we are similarly kept up to date with his progress, both formally and informally. When we have had concerns with our son, the staff are willing to listen and offer advice to resolve. He learns well, which must be down to the techniques they use and he constantly surprises us at home with his knowledge.
Having older children, we have had experiences with both private montessori and nursery's, however have found Little Companions to be by far, the best. We would have no hesitation recommending this nursery, and which we have already done to a number of friends, and will be sad to leave them when our son starts School.
During my three week placement at Little Companions my time spent there was extremely beneficial! All the members of staff was lovely to work with and was consistently professional. At first when I was told by my university I had to complete an additional 3 week placement after the course was finished it was a very stressful period, but as soon as I attended my first day at Little Companions all stress seemed to fade away very fast. The staff was all very welcoming and as for the management, I don't think they could of made any more time for me, ensuring that I was constantly kept up to date as to why they did what they did.
I was able to pick up a lot of tips and pointers from Naazish (Manager) about speech and language for EAL children (which I can personally say is not my strongest point) and made it sound very simple to replicate, as well as lots of other teaching strategies and techniques.
In comparison to my own setting it gave me a strong insight about the importance of helping those in the community around us. Little Companions has inspired me to encourage my current setting to do what we can for the community around us.
The nursery overall was a educational eye opening experience, it was very clear to see that all the members of staff are very passionate about their jobs, and because of this the children have thrived educationally and emotionally!
