My daughter has been so so happy at Abacus from the first day she joined. Kirsty is a fantastic preschool leader, ensuring that everything is well organised and calm for the children.
Our daughter is not only happy but has shown real progress in her writing ability and drawing, something we struggled to get her to engage with at home… she can now write her name!
Overall we are so impressed, Thank you Abacus
“Since I visited Abacus first time I had a good feeling about it. I work in education and can spot when a place is special. Abacus is all my girl talks about. In half and end of terms she gets her bag ready and asks to go everyday. She’s very attached to the staff and they have a massive positive impact on her behaviour, communication skills and development. She already has friends and even talks to strangers about her time with them.
When Abacus Stoke Gifford opened I didn’t hesitate to move my girl although she was well settled. But we barely noticed the change. She loved it from the first day. We enjoy tapestry so much, it’s such a treasure. What a nice preschool to get toddlers the right start to education!!
My little girl has absolutely loved her time at preschool. She started at Baileys Court, moving across to Stoke Gifford in January and every member of staff we have met at both settings have been amazing. She is a quiet character who initially did not want to leave me and I was amazed how quickly she settled and really looks forward to going.
If she is ever upset, her key worker quickly settles her, handing out cuddles when needed! And they have even sent me updates if I have been worried when leaving her.
They learn so much and do many activities whilst at preschool both inside and outside with updates on Facebook each day so that you know what they have been doing.
I really like that the teachers encourage independence, good manners and sharing but in a kind and gentle way.
Tapestry has been brilliant in seeing her progress and also using it as a journal for outside activities which enables the preschool to use these as additional examples to document her progress.
I cannot rate Abacus highly enough and absolutely love the friendly, busy atmosphere at Stoke Gifford.
My son is 2 yrs 5months. He has always been good at talking, and only started at Abacus Stoke Gifford in January. His speech is improving more and more every day!
I cannot believe the words and sentences that are coming out of his mouth! He loves Kirsty and Kerry and talks about them at home. During half term he’s missed school, is asking to go and says he wants to see Kirsty, Kerry and Aimee!! This morning he’s crying because his big brother has gone to school and he’s not going till tomorrow!
Thank you to all the staff for providing Harvey with such an amazing experience for his first step to becoming independent, and his first educational placement.
