Nursery schools are usually a more relaxed learning environment and more flexible enrollment terms. They are also cheaper and vary greatly.

My daughter goes to this amazing school. I was worried that she might get bullied because she joined from year 5 and other kids pretty much know each other from Nursery or Year 1. Fortunately, she came back with a very happy and good responce to her first day at school. She told me a lot about how nice her friends were to her and how nicely the teachers treated her. To this date, she loves her school very much and made many good friends. I heard that some kids who were bullied at other school came to St marychurch and how happy they are now. we are very lucky to find this great school.
Fantastic school! My daughter is so happy here after we moved her from a school she was unhappy at. Now she is thriving and loving life once again. Great staff and children.

A wonderful school offering so much more than others in the area. I've watched my children's self-confidence leap through the support of very dedicated teachers and staff. Children and their families are made to feel so welcome and shown that learning really can be fun.
Today (16/10/17), I again visited Barton Hill Academy with a 5m planetarium. This time 180 Year 2 and Year 5 students enjoyed peering up at the planetarium night sky, visiting the International Space Station, handling a meteorite and travelling across a future colonised Solar System. Thank you Barton Hill Academy for another very pleasant visit. Today (19/10/16), with my business Immersive Theatres, I delivered a 5m digital planetarium experience to 90 Year 2 students at Barton Hill Academy. On arrival I was warmly welcomed by the teaching staff and site manager. The morning was well-organised with all groups arriving on time. The excited students enjoyed viewing the planetarium night sky, visiting the International Space Station and learning about the Solar System and the different types of stars. Thank you Barton Hill Academy for a very pleasant visit.

An amazing friendly environment and understanding staff. They work with the parent to achieve the best for their child taking everything into consideration from toilet training to fussy eaters. They work hard to make sure children are reaching new goals within the Early Years Foundation Stage framework and spend time out of the establishment on every occasion the weather allows, with trips to the zoo or the park etc. I sent my oldest son here and now he has started school he is excelling, which I partly believe is due to excellent early education. I will be sending my youngest son to this nursery next term and I am confident this is the best choice for him as the owner is an amazing lady who treats every child individually.
The breakfast club and after school club give the nursery children a chance to mix with other age groups and prepares them for school later on. The staff are great and really do work hard with the kids so they must have the patience of a saint tucked away in there. When weather permits the children get to go out on regular trips. Our grandson has progressed in leaps and bounds since going to Phoenix. Can't praise them highly enough.

Abbey School Nursery has been the perfect place for my daughter to mix with other children and to adjust to school life, and I am so very pleased with the progress that she has made in her early developmental stages. I would recommend Abbey School Nursery in Torquay to any parent looking for similar for their child.

I’ve past 3 weeks there and that was really good ! Teachers and staffs are always taking care of you. I’ve learnt a lot and I recommend this school to you.
Very good school, perfect teachers as they are always to help even if you don't have any problems, member of staff are amazing, fantastic environment. Talking about EF is actually talking about a new family and very good friends that you are going to make throughout the year. Since I came, the members of the staff have been very attentive and the students will not let you alone never at school. There are a range of culture, people from different countries with different perspectives and mindset, it is just a global environment. Strongly recommended.

Preston Community Preschool has been great for my two children; nurturing, friendly, supportive and encouraging. The setting has a great outdoor space, which the children are encouraged to explore. There are always an array of activities on offer for the children, which are different every day. It’s really helped my children to become independent learners. Although it took a while for my son to settle, his key worker went over and above to help him ease into preschool life. My youngest went in on her first day and didn’t look back...!

It was a really productive and pleasant stay in 2017. Our 65 pupils were offered a brilliant programme in the language school as well as in the afternoon when the fun part began. The programme was really put together well and diversified. The staff and especially Peter and Andrea Hughes were very professional and took care of all our questions and wishes. We are already looking forward to next year's course! Keep up the good work, see you soon! Cheers, Martin Blattner

Both children had tutoring with Suzanne and have benefited from her approach. Groups were small and friendly and there was lots of material to practice between sessions.
Great tutors. Really helped our son to progress with his education.

I always knew that my son was different to other children, in that he appeared to be very bright, but was struggling academically. He was diagnosed as having dyslexia in his final year at primary school. This was good news for us, as it meant that I could start looking to get him the help he needed and deserved. My partner found Jenny Hulme by chance, and it was one of the best things that has happened for my son. School had tried very hard with him and were accommodating providing 1-1 lessons and various interventions. However by the end of primary school he was 3 years behind in his reading and 4 years behind in his spelling. When my son began his tutoring with Jenny he was 11 years old. His reading and spelling ability was that of an 8 year old and a 7 year old respectively. We started off with one hourly lesson a week and because of how successful this was increased to twice weekly to close the gap in his education even faster. His second assessment took place after 30 hours of intervention with Jenny and showed an improvement of 9 months in his spelling and a whole year in terms of his reading age! Memory is an issue for those with dyslexia and Jenny has been able to expand his auditory sequential memory by 15%, which essential for his academic learning. His memory scores also continue to improve. He is making excellent progress. These are his scores so far: Assessment pack used - Aston Index Initial Assessment 29/03/16 Spelling age: 7yrs Reading age: 8yrs Auditory sequential memory: 4.5/10 2nd Assessment 16/09/16 Spelling age: 7yrs 9 months Reading age: 9 yrs A.S.M 5/10 3rd Assessment 15/02/17 Spelling age: 8yrs 2 months Reading age: 10 yrs A.S.M 6/10 4th Assessment 13/10/17 Spelling age: 9yrs 4 months Reading age: 10yrs 10 months A.S.M 6.5/10 Jenny had the ability to form a positive teaching relationship with my son and he has been willing to attend his lessons twice a week for a sustained period of time. Jenny undertakes assessments and I would highly recommend her interventions if you are struggling with dyslexia or arrange an assessment if you suspect that dyslexia may be an issue.
