“So that's it. Freya has graduated from preschool and honestly I can't thank them enough, Parklanes Wykeham, for everything they've done for Freya. When she started her speech wasn't at all clear and it was frustrating for Freya but they worked with her and referred us to speech therapy.

You're all amazing and we're going to miss you all loads xxx" Samantha Jane - 2019

"I would highly recommend PWC, the staff are friendly and welcoming and our son has really enjoyed his time there. It has great facilities for your childs development, with an amazing outdoor play area. When it came to saying goodbye at the end of the year (my son is off to big school in September) all the staff made such a warming effect by hosting a graduation for the children, it felt so special and showed how valued every single child is there. We feel so lucky that our youngest daughter will be going there in September. Many thanks to all the staff!!!" Charlotte Louise Roberts - 2019

His social skills have improved greatly during his time at Parklanes Wykeham and he is also now ahead in where he needs to be with his education, especially with his phonics.

'Mia has been going to After School Club since Reception and more recently Breakfast Club, and she is now in year 6. Andy and Bev and the team have been brilliant throughout this time, and Mia has really enjoyed being there. I would highly recommend there services, knowing your child is safe and well look after is a blessing in itself. As Mia leaves to start her new journey into Secondary School, I would like to take this opportunity to thank them all for helping her to flourish in her younger years. And wish you all the best for the future. Eve Verschoyle 14/04/16

My children attend both breakfast & afterschool club and are always happy when dropped off and picked up. There is lots of activities for them to do and they often come home with things they have 'created' such as decorated biscuits etc. It's nice for them to spend extra time with their friends afterschool and make new ones too. Staff are always friendly and the clubs are really well organised. Just makes going to work that little bit less stressful! Nadia Chattaway 02/11/2015.

Both Bella and I wish whole heartedly that we did not have to leave you at PWC @ Forest row pre-school setting. We have both become vey attached to all the staff, and I have NEVER known a childcare setting to be so supportive and loving and have such a caring environment. I want to say thank-you for all the amazing support you have given us since Bella started. I believe that the staff have gone above and beyond the norm in their support for Isabella and our family. I would recommend this setting in Collier row to any parents thinking of starting their. We leave it with great sadness, it is one of a kind. Sharon and family. 22/10/2015

Evie has attended PWC Afterschool club with the team for over a year. They are always willing to work with you to accommodate any changes if at all possible. The children are well looked after and happy, you can rest assured they will collect your children and contact will be made if there are any problems. The willingness to help and flexibility have helped get me through the past years at primary school. Not sure how we would of got through without the support of Bev and the team.

Our son has attended Parklanes Wykeham Childcare @ Collier row preschool setting, for over two years. He has progressed so much at the setting. When he first started he wasn’t speaking much and had a hard time settling in but the wonderful staff worked hard with him with extra support and put measurers in place to help with his needs, and now he is a changed boy. We will miss the setting very much. Thank you to all. Riffat Irtiza (Rayyan) 16/07/2015

I can honestly say that i have no negative feedback at all. When Poppy started she was very tearful and found it hard leaving me but the staff did an amazing job at settling her in and keeping me updated throughout the day, by phoning and reassuring me (Nice Touch!). Poppy’s key worker @ Collier row preschool setting and the settings deputy were a big part of this. I think you have great staff, always friendly and helpful. Also the homework you give out is also a fab idea, i have enjoyed doing some of the pieces with poppy and its great that they can show and tell them. I couldn’t recommend use enough and i am very sad Poppy is leaving. See you in a few years with Daisy. Samantha Colliss 16/07/2015

I cannot praise or Thank you enough for everything you have done for Kyla. When she first started at Parklanes Wykeham Childcare @ Forest row preschool setting she was a very shy and reserved little girl who didn’t like mixing with others and now she is the total opposite . she has learnt so much and become such an independent little lady and I couldn’t be prouder of her. You have all brought out the best in my daughter and a am now confident that she will be just fine in “big school”. “Thank-you all so much!” Toni Brennan (Kyla) 16/07/2015

Elle has settled into Breakfast and After-school club with great ease as her first year in reception. This is all down to everybody at Parklanes Wykeham Childcare. She loves it so much that she moans about not going when we are there to take her to school or collect her from school. Elle loves all the activities that she does at both sessions and can’t wait for the next day to come. Sue & Elle 14/07/2015

I cannot recommend Parklanes Wykeham childcare highly enough. The Management and all the team run a very professional extended services within their settings. They are always helpful and so are the staff. Their settings are always clean and tidy and they strive to create a wonderful atmosphere at each setting, and i personally have complete faith and trust in the care of my daughter. Nothing is too much for them. When you need assistance with paperwork or issues other than childcare they are very approachable. Thanks! Tracey & Mia 13/07/2015

We cannot recommend the afterschool club highly enough. The Management and team are truly caring and nurturing towards the children. They are always happy to welcome you into the provision and they have created a lovely atmosphere. Our son Lucas loves the club so much that he has told us off on several occasions for picking him up “to early”. We have no doubt that he is in the best possible hands while he is at the club. Our most sincere gratitude to every member of the team. Marta, Lisle and Lucas SVB 13/07/2015

I am really pleased with the services and support received from Parklanes Wykeham Childcare Staff and management. I am really thankful for the support and understanding that the managing staff have given to my families needs and concerns. Andrew really understood the difficult circumstances of my family and got the matter resolved. Bilal Sajjad.20/03/0215

Our 6 year old son Louie has been attending the breakfast and after school club at Wykeham for 2.5 years. We have always been more than happy with the level of care he receives and think the staff are fantastic. He is extremely happy there and as well as learning he has lots of fun. Last September 2014 our 3 year old son George started at the pre school, he only attends once a week and we were worried it would take him a while to settle, as it did at nursery. However, he amazed us how quickly he settled and bonded with the carers. He is so happy and content and is always made a fuss of.Bev and Andy are a prime examples of good leadership, they are extremely supportive and show a great deal of care and interest in our children. We have often asked for extra sessions with little notice but Bev, Andy and Teresa are always happy to accommodate where possible. They show a great deal of care to the children and the parents, which is invaluable. I can't thank them enough for their continuous support! 06/02/2015
