Quotes from parent questionnaires.
“I love the warm and friendly atmosphere of Windham and the way my child is so eager to get in and get busy. I love the variety of activities, the subtle teaching and sense of worth and pride instilled in my child.”
“Lasting memory of Windham. Their joy at going to nursery each day and their excitement as they re-count the stories of what happened during the day.”
