Testimonials about Elizabeth Terrace Day Nursery & Pre-School
I would like to write a short letter about my children’s enjoyment of day nursery in Eltham at Elizabeth Terrace. Jake is now 10 years old who attended and enjoyed Elizabeth Terrace very much and developed very early skills and learned a lot before junior school. He was very forward and had achieved so much at Elizabeth Terrace that he is now well advanced in all his school work and above his year in most classes. I believe this is due to a great start that the staff provided him at Elizabeth Terrace.
Sophie, who left this week, is a very chatty child and probably drove the staff crazy with her singing and dancing all the time! She too is now very advanced for her start at junior school and will be put into reception/year 1 due to her ability already which is great.
I would like to say that both my children are great eaters now and are not afraid to try new things I do believe this to be the cook Tracy with the menus she had and her great cooking - the children were always trying new things. I would also like to say a big thank you to the Manager (Jo Boniface), with such a difficult year of Sophie’s Nan passing this year herself and all the staff were very caring to me and my family and especially delicate with Sophie at this sad time.
I think Elizabeth Terrace does give children a great start to life and I have recommended a young boy Daniel who is starting in October and I hope he too can enjoy this great experience at Elizabeth Terrrace. All staff will be sadly missed as they have been a big part of my life with the children for the past 10 years!
