We are proud of our achievements, and work hard to deliver the best experience we can for our children.  But don't just take our word for it; here is what other people said:


"I was very happy with how the staff settled my daughter into the pre-school and how her confidence developed. She was encouraged to make friends, participate in activities and get lots of fresh air in the garden"

Claire, Maya's Mum


"Both my children have absolutely loved coming to Dulwich Village Pre-school. It's the perfect stepping stone between being at home and starting school. My daughter, who is now in year one, still talks very fondly of her time with Pam, Donna, Megumi and Nanny Pam!"

Caitlin Clasper Mum to Florence and Freddie


"My daughter Cecily loves her time at the Dulwich Village Preschool. I have really valued the relaxed, nurturing atmosphere, which really allows children to be children as they learn though play.

The teachers are experienced, warm and kind, and the stability they provide has given Cecily a sense of security. There always seems to be time for a hug, a story or a joke. As a family we have felt part of the nursery community, and the children seem to thoroughly enjoy all the school events, such as the Halloween party, Christmas play and summer sports day.

I believe that the pre-school has done an excellent job of preparing Cecily for school life in September, while allowing her to have lots of fun along the way."

Leah Hardy


"Both my children have attended the pre-school, James is now 6 and has really fond memories that he still talks about of his pre-school days.  Samuel is 3 ½ and really enjoys going, as a Mum it is sometimes hard to feel that other people can look after your children as well as you can yourself but I really trust the staff and my children adore all of them.

It’s a great start to the long road that education is and the flexibility of the sessions means that Samuel and I still have lots of time together."

Louisa Ellis


"It didn't take me long to decide that Dulwich Village Pre-School was where I wanted my son William to go. As Pam showed me around, it was obvious that the children were having a lovely time. They were calm, happy and confident kids and there was no doubt that this was because of the caring staff who were clear and consistent in what they do.

It was an added bonus that the school is surrounded by playing fields and that the children are able to play outside on the veranda whatever the weather."

Dr. Alice Rees, Mum to William
