What do the Parents Say?
From the moment we visited Dagnall Under Fives they totally out shone the other pre-schools we had visited. It is clear from the first meeting that the teams full focus is the children and making their time with them fun but educational at the same time, whilst recognising they are all individuals with their own funny toddler ways. They have an amazing way of encouraging the children by engaging them in wonderfully fun activities so at times they do not even realise they are learning. Our daughter has thrived with DUF’s and, whilst I know she will be fully ready and prepared to start school (all thanks to Dagnall), I know she will miss all the team and all the fun that she has everyday with them. Cannot thank you all enough!
I felt welcome the moment I walked in and I knew my son would be well cared for, he developed and grew to go on to primary school with confidence and excitement!! Now my second son attends and I know how well loved and cared for he is. The staff love them and know them inside out. They are nurtured and encouraged in everything they do. I couldn’t think of anywhere better to care for my children.
My Daughter was just 2 when she started at DUFS it was a very hard and emotional time for my Daughter and I, however the amazing staff at DUFS where fantastic at helping us both. She attends everyday and Since June last year she has come on leaps and bounds, her confidence, speech and learning! Can’t thank the staff enough all Stars
Both of my Boys has attended DUFs and have absolutely loved it! I chose DUFs over all of the pre-schools and nursery’s in the area for one main reason, the love and care all of the team provide. From the outset the “home from home” feel had a huge effect on them settling in straight away and feeling comfortable and secure in their surroundings. Whilst DUFs provides the structure and routine that prepares them for school, the emphasis is always on the child and their needs. The range of activities from their weekly Football sessions with a coach, to the vast amounts of arts and crafts available, along with the daily reading and numeracy references, the boys were never bored, or under-stimulated. I can’t thank DUFs enough, and would highly recommend them.
Both my children attend DUF’s, every morning is always a warm welcome to both myself and my children! I feel happy knowing that not only are my children being looked after, but being loved and nurtured by all of the lovely ladies that work here! Every day they learn something new and do different things! My children are happy and so am I! DUFs have really supported me as a mum when I’ve needed advice, had any worries or concerns with my children and their development. It truly is a lovely play group with a real family feel where you can tell, to these ladies it’s not just their job, they put so much love and care into making everyday special for the most special little people in our lives! Thank You DUFs!!
Everyday is different. Welcoming smiley faces, varied activities, outdoor playtime, singing and stories always means my son looks forward to playgroup.
Dagnall Staff truly ensure that each child is as unique and special to them as they are to the parents.
Staff encourage children to try new experiences and learn through play. The playgroup has a good Ofsted report and my daughter is constantly telling me about the yummy hot and healthy daily snacks!
My Children are very happy and settled at Dagnall playgroup. With a good staff to child ratio, the little ones build strong relationships with their key person, adults and the other children.
