WHAT OUR PARENTS SAYTESTIMONIALS ABOUT BERRY COMMUNITY PRE-SCHOOL
“The staff are dedicated, experienced, and very approachable. I couldn’t have asked for a better pre-school experience. Berry Preschool offers the right mix of ‘playing and having fun’ and ‘getting them ready for school’. My son has become more confident and more social since attending Berry Pre-School.”
“What a wonderful time we have had at Berry Pre-School. My daughter has blossomed into a confident, social, happy girl who is more than ready to start school. We are excited about the next chapter but sad to no longer be part of this wonderful community”
Berry Pre-School gives children and their families such a warm welcome – my shy girl quickly felt at home and is making new friends. We are particularly impressed with how familiar the children get with Berry Public School, which will really help with the transition to ‘big school’ next year.
