Lovely feedback from one of our recent nursery visits…..
I’m not sure how today’s visit went from your perspective as a first visit, but from ours it was amazing!!!!!
I can’t tell you how much we appreciate how you set up the room and the thoughtful responses to Aidan as he came in and got to know the place. Rachel was brilliant with him as were all the staff and he was enthralled by everything!
Him talking the way he did blew our minds! I have never seen him do that instantly with new people and certainly none of the professionals involved have seen anything like it – they are going to be amazed.
When he went into the garden to make sparks with flints and blow on the fire, he was spellbound. One of the wee boys was showing him what to do, I went for a wander and when I came back Aidan had walked over to the wee boy, he was looking at him trying to catch his eye and saying an approximation of “spark” (he’s never heard that word before today) and was gesturing to try to get the wee boy to show him the sparks again.
I have not seen him try to initiate contact with other wee people he does not know very often at all, Aidan was showing some skills here, trying to catch his eye with verbal and gestures – it is amazing to me!
Alan and I are absolutely confident that Aidan will settle and thrive in your environment. The conversation I had with you was thoughtful and intelligent, we are certain that even if the move unsettles him initially that you and your staff team will be completely equipped to minimise this and to be honest my instinct is that he will be too excited about what is happening to be upset for long.
So to proceed, we are very confidently going to take your offer of a place for him. All our fears about moving him are gone.
