"Our son has been with URC since he turned 2 and he has always loved it there, he can’t wait to get there he has so much fun, his language has come on so much and we are happy with the things he has learnt and how he is developing he will continue at URC until he has to move on at age 4. He has made lovely friends and comes out smiling at the end of the day. All the staff have been wonderful and particularly encouraging with the potty training also, which now he has really nailed. Thanks to all the staff you are all wonderful." Mrs Birch (Feb 2022)
"We can’t speak highly enough of this wonderful preschool. Our daughter has been attending for 18 months now and is so happy here. I will be very sad when the time comes for her to move on; it has been the best start for her. The staff are all fantastic - from the initial home visits to ensure she settled in smoothly, to lots of invaluable help with potty training, and a varied and stimulating weekly timetable. Our daughter is always singing songs she has learned at preschool. The enclosed garden is such a bonus for a town centre setting, and the children spend plenty of time playing outside." Mrs Phillips (Feb 2022)
"We are very happy with the care and education URC provides. The staff are professional yet also friendly and approachable and really care for the children. Our son really enjoys his time there!" Mrs Thomson (Feb 2022)
"I couldn’t be happier with the care my son receives at URC pre school. It is the first childcare setting he has ever been too without a parent and he has been thriving since starting to attend in January. He asks to go every day, he thoroughly enjoys it and he loves the staff." Mrs Gardner (May 2020)
"My experience with this nursery has just been fantastic. As corney as it sounds, I honestly feel like part of the family. Nothing is too much for them and their care is second to none. I don't think twice about dropping off my children as I know they are going to be very well cared for. My eldest has some physical challenges and they have cared for and encouraged her throughout her time there. But not only her, me also. My youngest has separation anxiety that I wasn't sure how she would handle it. But now she doesn't even say goodbye! I can only say thank you. Thank you for making this so easy for them and me." Mrs Meller (May 2020)
"My daughter has been extremely happy here, her wellbeing is always the staff’s priority and they are brilliant at engaging with the children. I feel the preparation into getting ready to go to school is really good and my daughter is already very competent with her letters and numbers and she is starting to read! I have always been very impressed with URC and would recommend them to everyone. Thank you to all the staff." Mrs Gupta (May 2020)
" As a family we have not had an easy few years and I can honestly say I don't know how I would have managed without the care and support from the staff at URC. I know my son is loved and cared for at all times." Mrs Shapton (July 2019)
" I have been so impressed by URC, it far exceeded any expectations I had of the level of care that a nursery could provide. The staff are so attentive and caring with my son. I have total peace of mind that he is in a safe and nurturing environment at the URC. I couldn't have asked for more!" Mrs Olandj (July 2019)
" The preschool is a wonderful nurturing environment. The staff all take great interest in my daughter's happiness and development. We have been really happy with the experience. I also feel it is great value for money - we get so much more from the URC than we ever did with commercial nurseries. " Mrs Willmington (July 2019)
"Lovely environment for kids, the staff are friendly and always smiling!" Mrs Andongabo (July 2019)
" My daughter loves this wonderful & nurturing pre-school. They make learning fun & the staff are so caring. She cheers with joy on nursery days! Thoroughly recommend. " - Mrs Deutrom (January 2019)
"From my daughter’s very first day going into Rainbow Room to the day she left as a much bigger four year old, everyone at URC did an outstanding job in helping her learn and develop. There is such a caring ethos coupled with a focus on the child having fun and learning so that they are ready for the next step that I wouldn’t hesitate recommending it to anyone else." - Mrs Hancock (September 2018)
