From Thomas's parents
We have loved Early Learners for our son.
It's a lovely, social nursery where you're greeted, by name, every day by the lovely staff. They have fun weekly themes to keep the kids engaged with lots of play.
It's great to get weekly emails with a summary of their week.
My son has loved the teachers and assistants he has had since joining.
We are really going to miss it!
From Ruaridh's Parents
We are really glad that Ruaridh has had a chance to start his 'school' life with nursery at Early Learners. It's a really nurturing and happy environment where the kids seem to thrive. The teachers there really care about the children and work hard to make their days fun and full of activities, helping them to learn through play in a way that they enjoy. This was our son's first experience of being away from Mummy and although the initial transition was hard for him, the staff were really supportive and helped both him and I to adjust to it. The weekly email updates with photos and the end of term scrapbooks are a great way for you to see more of what they do everyday. I know he's going to miss going there now that he's heading to the big school this year but he certainly has lots of great memories to take with him. Thanks Early Learners!
From Harry's Parents
Our little boy, Harry has attended Early Learners since September 2014 and is about to start his new adventure to big school. We could not have wished for a better start to his learning and development. It's been wonderful to see his confidence and social skills improve during his time there. He loves the different themes each week and learning through play.
We have always found the staff to be caring, friendly and always happy to help and we feel are very supportive to a child's individual needs.
We have loved receiving the photos at the end of the nursery week, being able to see Harry and his classmates all learning and experiencing new things.
We feel Early Learners has been a magical fun place for Harry to attend and couldn't recommend this nursery more highly.
We will miss Early Learners just as much as Harry but we know he has had excellent preparation towards his next stage in learning.

From Sami's Mum
We feel so privileged to have had Sami at Early Learners. We would like to thank you for valuing him for the person that he is and helping him to become the best that he can be.
From Elizabeth and Olivia's Mum
We will be forever grateful for the many gifts you have given our children. It has been a pleasure to watch them grow in your care and our years at Early Learners will be treasured and not forgotten.
From Ted and Sam's Mum
Writing a testimonial has come at a timely juncture, as Ted is just about to leave Early Learners and move onto the next stage of his educational journey. I feel tearful at the prospect that we won’t be picking up happy laughing children from the wonderful Early Learners environment after this term finishes. Yvonne and all the staff have changed our lives with their incredible insights into our children and always positive words of encouragement and support. We particularly like the emphasis on creative play and the ever changing array of games, painting & modelling stations and imaginative role play areas that have allowed our children to grow and learn within a fun and happy atmosphere. We have also appreciated how Early Learners recognized and promoted each child’s skills and strengths as individuals and we feel that our children have benefitted from this approach and we will be forever grateful!
From Sam's Mum
My son, Sam, has attended Early Learners for the last 2 years - we are very sad to be leaving for "big school" after a fantastic start supported by the careful attention of all his teachers. Sam started at the age of 2 and was quite shy to begin with - the teachers showed great care in helping him to settle quickly by understanding which activities he engaged with, and helping him to make friends with his classmates. Over the last 2 years, Sam has flourished and become a happy, confident boy who plays well with others. He has hugely enjoyed the variety of themes followed throughout the year - the activity corner is a frequently changing adventure area transforming the children to anything from deep sea divers, to vets, and even dinosaurs! During Sam's time at Early Learners, the nursery was assessed by the Education Department and achieved outstanding reports in all areas of assessment - this achievement is well deserved and I would highly recommend the nursery as the first choice of pre-school on the island. Thank you for such a great start to school life - we will miss you!
From Lawrence's Mum
I feel privileged to have been able to move
From Layla's Mum and Dad
Our daughter has loved her year at EARLY LEARNERS and we only wish she could stay longer! Staff have always been available to answer our queries and nurture all the children, encouraging the best from them depending on their own talents in a fun environment. What a fantastic first school experience ! I have suggested the school to many friends, all of whom feel the same way. The rest of the staff are equally wonderful and I would recommend the school to anyone who wants the perfect start to their child's education.
From Phoebe's Mum
I have been extremely pleased with everything Early Learners have done for my daughter Phoebe. Settling in was easy as there is so much for the children to work with and parents are encouraged to stay initially which really helps. The staff are dedicated and really know the children as individuals. They are exceptional; they nurture, encourage, enable, facilitate and, quite frankly, bend over backwards to ensure the children learn in a safe and stimulating environment. I would recommend Early learners unreservedly! Dr. Clare Beckett-McInroy EdD
