Parents Feedback

I can’t believe after 7 years, I will no longer be bringing any of my little ones to Chatterbox anymore! You have all helped give Jess, Belle and Alex the most amazing experience across their early years, and they all talk so fondly of the time they had with you all. The environment you have created is just so wonderful and the care you offer so nurturing yet build their independence. Thank you for everything you have done for us!

Thank you Chatterbox pre-school
I’m glad you were my teachers
as I’ve come to love you so
I can’t believe I’m all grown up
and now I have to go!

I will remember all the fun we had,
the memories I will treasure,
but now I have to move on
and leave here forever.

I will miss you all lots and lots
