What Our Parents Say -

Our child loves his time at Pre school and has enjoyed playing with both staff and children. He loves making new friends and playing with both inside and out. Our child speaks very fondly of every one at pre-school and we are looking forward to his next adventure. Thank you for all you hard work in allowing him to grow into the child he has become.

Anna and Daniel

We love this report. Our child has thoroughly enjoyed his year at High Lane, he’s become so much more confident and we’ve seen him grow so much. He really is a cheeky boy who does do everything at his own pace. We always hear about the snails that are going to school or work 🙂 (This little one takes the walking bus every day!). We’d like to thank all at High Lane for everything you’ve done. Moving him to Simmondley Pre school was such a good decision.


What a lovely and brilliant assessment. It’s really great to see how he has come on in leaps and bounds. Thank you to the staff for all your support in helping him to grow as a person.
