Some lovely feedback that we have received from one of our parents.....


Dear Sam, Sarah and the Abacus Team

I just wanted to write this to express our gratitude for all that you have done in the 3 years that Oliver has been coming to Abacus Nursery.

You have helped so much in his development and getting him ready for his next venture at “big boy school” as he likes to call it.

Sadly I couldn’t see you all to say goodbye and thank you in person as I was working a long day (probably a good thing as you would have probably had a blubbering mummy mess in the reception area)!

Oliver comes home from nursery excited to tell us what he has been up to, who he has played with and the teachers who have been working that day.

He has adored everyone (especially Alice who he informed me that he was going to Marry) ❤️.

We wish you all the best and keep up the amazing job you all do.

Kind regards

Parent of a child who has left summer 2022
