“My eldest daughter started at Phoenix the Christmas before she was due to start School. From the start everyone was so welcoming and friendly and took every care
to help my daughter settle and get to know her. The playgroup is run by a committee of parents which makes it a very special and unique setting where they truly
care about each child and their family. The time my daughter spent at the playgroup also made the transition to school easy as we had already got to know lots of
people and felt part of the school community.
We loved it so much that my youngest daughter has started at the Tweenies group (which is a lovely, friendly, relaxed group) and she will start the pre-school
playgroup as soon as she is old enough. Everyone that works at and helps run Phoenix is so lovely and the care provided is outstanding.” -SM, January 2017
“My youngest and third child just started baby group in September, which is a bit scary as it only seems like yesterday that my son who is now 7 and at Park Grove was there too! I love that fact that she’s already playing with other babies who she’ll be going to school with in 4 years, when my son and daughter both started Park Grove, they were so comfortable with their surroundings and peers that it was a bit of a non event for them ( less so for us! ). They were all looked after by the same staff who saw them through from 0-4 and I was part of the commitee with other mums whose children attended Phoenix too, people who I’m still friends with. There’s such a wonderful sense of community at Phoenix, and the pre school itself is an integral part of the children’s school experience. I’ll be genuinely gutted when my youngest starts school and my connection is officially over.” SH, January 2017
“All three of my sons have gone to Phoenix over the last 8 years. My youngest will start school this September and I’ve realised I’ll have run out of children to bring! The care has always been fantastic and all my children have loved their time there. I am sure this is because of the attention and genuine care they recieve from the staff, as well as the variety of activities they are able to do. It was staff at Phoenix who highlighted my middle son’s Aspergers which was diagnosed a year after he started school. I am grateful for their help with starting us on the process of diagnosis as well as their assistance in enabling his transition from Phoenix to full time school. Phoenix has a genuine community feel, with an active committee and fantastic staff. I am genuinely going to miss being a Phoenix parent.” – LW, January 2017
