He built up strong relationships with his Key Person and still talks very fondly of the Preschool now.I can not recommend this Preschool enough, it has prepared my son for school better than I could have hoped.He is excited to learn more and ask questions which I believe to be down to Woodlands.

Our daughter went there for 2 very happy years. Lovely staff and wonderful outdoor play area for the children to play in. Highly recommended.

St George's Nursery, Pre-school & Out of school club

7 Chilston Rd, Tunbridge Wells TN4 9LP, UK – 01892 543982

My son has been at St George's since he was 16 months. I Couldn't rate St George's high enough! Such amazing staff! Every staff member seems to know all the children and parents regardless of which class their in, my son is always so excited to go to school, he always comes home with painting and biscuits that he has baked there, his key worker Suzie is always seems to be excited to see him, always seems touched when he smiles at her and she is always working on his progress and pleased when he achieves. Couldn't ask for a better nursery! And thank you to Suzie and Ellie who have been his key workers so far.

My daughter uses the holiday club and we couldn't be happier. They do fantastic activities and trips out and my daughter absolutely loves her time there. The times that they are open are also great, as a working parent it is brilliant that I can drop her off at 8am and pick her up at 6 pm knowing that she has had a hot and nutritious dinner. She is very happy there and loves all the staff. Couldn't recommend St George's more! :-)

Broomhill Bank School

Broomhill Rd, Tunbridge Wells TN3 0TB, UK – 01892 510440

I liked Broomhill Bank School because we got to do lots of fun activities that many other secondary schools might not do like theme days and McDuck day! The staff were very helpful and kind too. My favourite lesson was Science which I had not liked at primary school but they made it extremely fun at Broomhill Bank, I also enjoyed English, Maths and work experience , P.E, Independence training, the only thing I did not like was dance and I wished we done History even if it was a History Theme Day and not a lesson! I also liked making things for Christmas in the Sixteen Plus, later The Further Education Department (FED) Sadly they don't have it any more but I really enjoyed boarding and Arches Club! Jessica
