Parents Feedback is important to us so as children move on to school or nursery we ask Parents/carers to fill in a comments sheet, below you will find some of the feedback we received at the end of the Summer term.

Staff supported my child with his difficult behaviour as well as giving me strategies for home life. They also understand his individual needs and had a lot of time and patience for him. When my home life became difficult and challenging playgroup staff always offered their support and advice, I never felt judged and was always respected as an individual. We will miss Sherwood playgroup - Thanks for all your support over the years.


We have loved watching our son grow and develop in the last 18 months at playgroup. He has so enjoyed his time at Sherwood playgroup you've cared for his emotional needs and that's as much as important as his educational needs, that's been so important and valuable. He has loved the range of activities but particularly the cars. We've loved how much he has been able to access the outdoor space all year round in all weathers. There's always a warm welcome for all the family. Thank You to you all.

This playgroup has been a perfect place for my daughter, she has loved every minute of her time here. It's a warm welcoming environment and I really feel like the staff care about my child. It has been really good preparation for when my daughter starts nursery in September.

I have been very impressed with the playgroup from the start. I felt very confident in leaving my son here as the staff are well qualified, experienced but above all demonstrative and caring. I think this is one of the nursery's biggest strengths. My son was always comforted if upset. I feel his interests were acknowledged and supported, such as the natural world and outdoor play, this is another aspect I really like about the nursery. There is lots of encouragement for play-led learning and isn't obsessively focussed on too much formal learning. My son has really enjoyed his time here and I am very pleased with it as a parent. I would highly recommend to other parents!

The staff are all friendly, approachable and most importantly seem happy in their work. The sessions provide the perfect balance and opportunity for children to self determine play and follow structured learning. There is a lot of creativity from staff in relation to topics and play. The outdoor area is a wonderful oasis for the children, brilliantly utilised by the staff through the seasons, from icicles to ice pops, beanstalks to bubbles! It is always a joy to see the children playing happily outdoors supervised by calm and engaging staff. My son has benefitted greatly from his time at the playgroup, although the group has limited resources it is very resourceful. I hope it continues to be supported by parents / carers and wider community. For hotter months blackout blinds / curtains could help cool the room. Is there a charitable provider somewhere? To end, Sherwood playgroup is great - Thank You
