We appreciate all of your lovely words, thank you.



We were so nervous moving our daughter from nursery to Early Learners away from all she had known so far, but it was without doubt the best decision for her.  She has come on so much this last year and she is every bit as happy and confident as we could hope for as she starts school.

You have created such as caring and nurturing environment that really does bring out the best in those little ones. Not to forget all the fun!  It must be tremendous fun as she asks hopefully if it’s an EL day every single day!!  Sundays are so disappointing these days!

We wish you all the very best over the next year and will be sure to encourage a wave as we pass.

Thank you for all you have done for our daughter this past year, she has come on leaps & bounds since joining Early Learners.

We can’t thank you all enough for everything you do and we look forward to our youngest daughter being able to join her big sister in September.

Thank you for everything you have done with our daughter over the past 18 months.  She has LOVED being part of Early Learners, and she is definitely ready to start school in September.

We very much hope to see you again soon, if not before, when our youngest child starts. with you., next September.

It has been a crazy year but our child has loved every minute that she spent at Early Learners and talks proudly about you all.  

The activities you have sent home and the zoom sessions during lockdown have been massively appreciated and she has enjoyed seeing you all.. Thank you.

We just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for everything that you have done for our daughter this year at Early Learners.  We have loved watching her learn and grow, she has absolutely loved her time there and I know will miss you all.  We so enjoyed going back through her Tapestry Online Journal and seeing all the brilliant things she did, you all work so hard. Our daughter had never been to nursery before and we worried about leaving her for the first time - well we couldn't have left her at a better place.

Thank you!

Both of our children have attended Early Learners and have had such amazing experiences.  My eldest son still talks about his time here and even though my youngest son is looking forward to primary school, he still wants to stay in your classroom, so I know he is going to miss you all.  

I have loved being able to attend the stay and play sessions and coming on the end of year trips.  It has been a pleasure seeing how much fun our sons have had, learning new things through play.  They both were able to overcome any challenges they had, and I will be forever grateful for all you have done for them.

Thank you for giving them an amazing start to their journey through school.

Thank you for everything that you have done to make my son's time at Early Learners so wonderful.  He has learnt so much and become much more independent and confident.  We will all miss you.

A huge thank you to all the staff at Early Learners. I cannot praise or recommend this pre-school enough. 


My daughter started in September 2018 after a previous unsuccessful nursery attempt elsewhere. After looking around a lot of other nurseries and pre-schools I knew this was the perfect one for her on our first visit. 


The staff are second to none, and spend all their time and energy engaging with the children. The learning opportunities, patience, encouragement and support they provide are outstanding. 


My daughter has suffered with sensory issues since she was born, and is of the shy / sensitive nature. I never thought she would be happy leaving my side, but from the first day at Early Learners she started to flourish. She is so happy here, and adores all the staff and her friends. It’s the nicest thing to witness. 


Over the past year she has grown so much in confidence and independence, it has made me the happiest and proudest Mummy. 


The staff at Early Learners are so supportive of the children and their growth. They always keep you in the loop with regular online journals so you can see what the children have been up to. I am honestly so thankful to have found this pre-school and I can’t wait for my younger one to have her journey there. 


Thank you so much, you will be greatly missed !

My daughter has really enjoyed her time in Early Learners and I know she will miss all the staff that she has come to love when she moves into Reception at Lancaster Lane. My daughter is a confident and happy girl and I know she has learnt so much during her time at Early Learners. Thank you for all your hard work preparing our little girl for school.

Really happy parents. ...

Thanks so much to Mrs Gold and her team my daughter has grown to become a lovely little girl who loves Pre school.  She has become independent and I love that you have been able to get her to do things for herself. The toilet stamp idea works amazing and I have implemented this step at home by buying a motivation stamp.  I tried stickers first, but the stamp works wonders.  Thanks. I truly appreciate all that you have done and do still to make my daughter a wonderful little girl.

She loves everyone at Lancaster Lane.  The chickens in room at moment make my daughter wonder how and why/and the plants teach her to grow things - she now wants to go into our garden and plant things. I am now looking into buying a growing tent.  Thanks again for all that you do.

We moved to Leyland 3 years ago and were very fortunate to be able to get our son (then 3yrs old) into Early Learners. He was very shy and after our recent house move we were unsure of how a new nursery on top of this would impact him. Securing his place in Early Learners was the best move we could have made. Mrs Gold and her team were truly amazing at helping Harry adapt and build his confidence. Harry has since moved on to Lancaster Lane and we have to say the way that Early Learners supported him with that transition and how they got him ready for school life was just perfect. He joined school a very happy and confident child and we have to say it is down to the nursery and all their hard work.
We were then even more fortunate to have our 2 year old, Olivia, be one of the very first 2 year olds to join the nursery last year. She joined the nursery full time the week following her birthday and she has definitely never looked back. One year on and every single day she runs through the doors and cant wait to get in. The staff at Early Learners develop a real bond with the children and it really shows. The daily updates and videos on Tapestry are a brilliant way to see what she has been up to and we can also send our own updates (including pictures and videos) back to show what Olivia has been doing at home.
The communication is fantastic both ways. We feel very lucky to have found Early Learners. We have four children who have attended different nurseries and in our experience with Early Learners has been perfect in every way.

To, All the staff at Early Learners,

We cannot thank you enough for the exceptional care and love you have shown to both our children, April and Luke, in the past 4 years.  They have both developed into beautiful children with confidence and a love for learning, which is down to the great job you did with them.  You are outstanding individuals who put so much into your jobs and it shows.  April and Luke enjoyed every day they were with you and talk about you fondly at home.

I have noticed how much my daughter has come on this past year and it's all thanks to the amazing staff at Early Learners!  The consistent support, encouragement, praise and attention both my daughter and I have received has been appreciated and crucial in her development.  Early Learners always keep you in the loop and I love her online journal.  It is a great way of keeping track of her progress.  My daughter is ready for big school and it's all thanks to the staff's hard work and dedication.

Dear Mrs Gold and all Early Learners' staff,

Thank you for all your support, help, care and effort throughout the time Victor has been with you!  He's enjoyed being with you, learnt new things, made friends and has always had a great time at Early Learners.

My child has made friends and is a happy member of your Pre School.  She always has a smile when going into the setting and she has come on so much since being at Early Learners.


July 2017



It is an absolutely fantastic setting for children age 3-4! The staff are so caring, organised and experienced. The manager Debbie is so lovely and I feel she really knows my son. There is great communication and i always feel really involved in my sons learning. He has come on so much with his writing since he started there and loves getting a new book to read at home with me each week. He runs in everyday he goes and can't wait to see his friends. A really fun yet educational environment for children where they feel nurtured. My son hates going to his private nursery but loves coming to Early Learners. Cannot highly recommend enough what a great Pre School this is.

 My son Rocco LOVED Early Learners, having moved several times in the past 2 years he has attended several nurseries and a Pre School but this one has been by far the best, having moved again last month I can say I have honestly struggled to find one on par. 
I feel this Pre School gets the balance between fun and learning exactly right. The staff are amazing and I really felt they took time to get to know and understand Rocco.
Rocco learnt so much whilst there and he still talks about it and tells me he misses his teachers a lot. We will be popping in to visit and to stay in touch! 
If you are reading this and considering sending your child to Early Learners, I can't recommend it highly enough, I truly believe this is an outstanding Pre-School.
A huge Thank You from myself and Rocco!

Logan has grown so much after his time at Early Learners. 
Before he came here he was quiet and refused to interact with others or try new things. Now he is happy and eager to attempt things he would never have done before like riding a horse. He can happily play nicely with other children and loves to try making new friends when we are out and about. The staff at Early Learners have been amazing with him, they have kept me informed about everything he has done and I have loved seeing his experiences through Tapestry and being invited to craft mornings and stay and play days. As much as he will miss coming to Pre School, Logan has been prepared for the change in his routine well and is now excited for his adventure in Primary school. I look forward to being able to take Max here in 2018. He will enjoy it just as much as Logan has.
Thank you so much for all you have done for Logan.

I would like to thank you for the support and encouragement to Noah during his two years at Pre School.  Noah has had a really positive experience at Lancaster Lane.  As parents, we are amazed at the constant enthusiasm, creativity and energy that you put into helping our children reach their potential.
Noah is our youngest of four children.  Our other children attended a different Pre-School.  Whilst it is not always helpful to compare – we cannot believe the difference in the standard of education that Noah has received.  Noah can confidently write his name, recall and write his numbers.  He is starting to read – but most importantly, you have made it ‘fun’ for him to learn.  He is so much better prepared for making the transition to primary school.
We have particularly enjoyed the way Early Learners have invited us into the Pre-School on so many occasions to share in Noah’s learning.  We really enjoy the stay and play mornings and the bacon butties were an added bonus.
We really feel that you know our child, and his special qualities.  It has been really helpful that you have given us a daily update on what kind of day he has been doing.(no matter how busy you are at the start and end of the school day).  Although, Noah is always so full of news about things he has been doing whilst at preschool.
It is our opinion that Early Learners is an ‘Outstanding’ preschool!  Most importantly, Mrs Gold, Mrs Brown, Miss Kennedy and Freddi are such lovely, caring and compassionate people. 
Thank you to you all!!

Mrs Q, July 2015

 All three of my children attended your Early Learners, and over the  course of the four years they shared with you they all flourished and grew into wonderful, excitable and happy individuals who were ready and eager to start school.
The environment that you provide is second to none and encourages all children, regardless of ability to try and to succeed.
Your staff are always available to talk with parents about any concerns they might have, no matter how big or small and the support both parents and children receive at a huge crossroads in both their lives is exceptional.
I have, and will continue to recommend your Early learners to friends and family and will forever be grateful for the help and guidance my children received from you in their early years.
