My granddaughter was rather on the shy side and would not share before attending nursery. Now she is a vibrant, very bubbly and social person. All the family have noticed the complete turnaround in the last year. A better nursery I don't think we could have chosen. Staff have been very friendly and took time to get to know me as the child's carer.

Before my son started at this pre-school he suffered terribly with separation anxiety. The team at Tommies were so helpful and supportive.

The playgroup is a very homely place so Caleb felt very calm and relaxed when I left him. They were very helpful when I was going through the process of toilet training Caleb which has been successful with their input.

The nursery was great for my daughter, she settled very well and they took great care in her and all the other children. I have had regular chats about my child's progress and they were very helpful. All the staff are very friendly and easy to talk to. I would recommend the nursery to everyone.

My daughter has loved every minute at St Thomas playgroup. All of the members of staff are very welcoming and approachable. They do lots of activities throughout the day and school term. Another very useful point to make is that they are open school hours and term time only, which fits in perfect when you have school aged children.

My daughter has been going to St Thomas Pre-School since January 2015. She settled in very quickly and enjoys going which is very important. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and she feels very comfortable with them. There is always a good variety of educational toys. I have always been informed if my daughter has had any toilet accidents and staff are very well trained to give an excellent level of personal care. Overall I am very happy with the level of service St Thomas Pre-School offers and would definitely recommend.

My son has been going to St Thomas since he had just turned 2, in September 2014. He started off very shy and found it hard to leave me but he has now completely settled in, grown in confidence and can't wait to leave me! All the staff are wonderful and it's a lovely preschool. My son absolutely loves going!
