What the Parents Say

“I really can’t thank you enough for all that you and The Willow have done for Wilf. He has totally thrived under your care. You have nurtured his enthusiasm and channelled his endless energy and questioning mind into positive development rather being the class fool/troublemaker – although I’m sure you get a bit of that!”

What the Parents Say

“Thank you so much for everything you have done this year for Leo. He has absolutely adored his time at The Willow and you have been an enormous part of that. Thanks to your skilful nurturing and kindness you have turned an ugly duckling into a very fine swan indeed.” Kirsty and Nick

What the Parents Say

“Very special thanks to all of you for making these years such a positive experience for D and F. I know my kids will miss you all enormously but at least they, and indeed all of us, will keep our fond memories of the past years at The Willow. The Willow is a very special place and has given our kids fantastic start in life that we will always remember!” Jenny

What the Parents Say

“Thank you for all your hard work and dedication. This year has been wonderful for Matilda and we have seen her visibly gain confidence socially, physically and educationally. She comes home so excited about what she has done in the day with beautiful creations! We are amazed at the creativity and we really appreciate what you and the team have got at The Willow which is magical.”
