" All of the URC staff have been so supportive in helping my daughter to settle and enjoy her preschool sessions. She has struggled with separation from me but Mrs Robinson and all the staff have shown great patience and given a lot of individual attention to her. She loves her preschool sessions and will be very sad to move on! I feel very happy that the team have prepared her well for her next stage. " Mrs Machin (July 2019)


" 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.

" The years my child has spent at the URC have all been happy and have hugely benefitted his development. Every stage of the preschool and nursery is perfectly designed for the level of learning and need for support of the child. The staff are outstanding and know each child exceptionally well. The atmosphere throughout the preschool is caring, fun and disciplined. My child is very ready for school due to the nurturing and teaching he has received at URC." Mrs Vardy (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.

" We are absolutely  delighted with our experience of the URC Preschool. The staff all went out of their way to help my son settle and we are especially grateful to Mrs Valle and Mrs Powell who took such good care of him in Rainbow Room. They have really helped to develop his confidence and independence in a fun and safe environment. Thank you!" Mrs Breakell (July 2019) 


" Very nurturing environment that helped my child settle when we were new to the area." Mrs Smith (July 2019)


" Both my girls have been to URC and loved it, the teachers are excellent and the level of care and support they give is amazing and includes the whole family. My girls have loved going and learning how to understand the world, make new friends and get ready for school. I highly recommend URC Preschool for a warm and caring environment." - Mrs Rae (May 2019)


" My son loves URC Pre-School and Nursery and so do we as parents. It is such a happy and bright place and the staff are so caring, experienced, and nurturing. Our son has grown so much in his self-confidence, care for others and educationally too. All the staff know each child and are so good at treating each child as an individual. It is also a wonderfully inclusive school with excellent SEN capabilities.
We feel so happy knowing our son is in the care of such dedicated and wonderful staff. We even decided to keep him there a year longer than we originally planned (rather than changing to our local school’s nursery). Highly recommend!"
- Mrs Reyes-Churchill (February 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) 


"Children (and parents) love URC Preschool. There is so much joy and laughter at the preschool. The staff care so much about the children and their families. They are also very attentive. They are great about work with parents regarding the childrens development! Personally, my child recieves excellent care and has so much fun at URC. Over the past year, my child has grown and matured so much. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful! They were instrumental in helping me successfully potty training my child. Not to mention, my child is learning so much more, from sharing and other social skills, to colors, numbers, and so much more. I would highly recommend URC for any parent looking for a preschool program in Harpenden." - Mrs Ramirez-Mann (January 2019)


"What an amazing nursery & pre-school set in the heart of Harpenden. The staff are so caring and have a massive sense of well being for my son. Two of my boys have thrived in the pre school environment, they have been nutured, enjoyed play and have enjoyed learning too. It is a great place to start your child's childcare at 2 years old and sets them up for school when they turn 4. I could not recommend it enough, we will be sad to leave in 2019. " - Mrs Whitehead (December 2018)


"I would highly recommend URC Nursery and Preschool. Both my boys went there and started as 2 year olds. They were so well looked after by kind and nurturing teachers. They both learnt and developed so much and were always so happy. My boys loved the setting, lots of space to play and a great outdoor garden. It was super that the boys could stay for lunch. My boys made some wonderful friends at URC and I have to." - Mrs Roberts (December 2018)


"Fantastic pre-school, both my children have absolutely loved it and l couldn’t recommend it enough. The teachers are all really nurturing and get to know the individual personalities of the children so well and help them develop and grow." - Mrs McPherson (November 2018)


"We were so pleased with our choice of the URC preschool. It is a safe, secure and happy environment for staff and children. The staff are amazing and very caring for the children. They clearly spent the time to learn each child's individual personalities and needs which resulted in a very friendly and approachable environment. Our two boys loved every minute of preschool. It was lovely every day to drop off two excited boys and pick up two very happy boys at the end! Thank you to all the staff who make it such a wonderful place." - Mr & Mrs Prentice (September 2018) 


"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)


" I can highly recommend the URC preschool and nursery. It’s been absolutely fabulous for my son, who has been there since he was 2. The staff are friendly, experienced and the majority of them are mums themselves that have been at the school for years creating a brilliant team. They know all the children and families. We have just accepted our nursery place for September which we are delighted about. The Ofst report is outstanding, I can’t not recommend the school enough. " - Mrs Love (June 2018)
