Parental comments from EYFS Stay and Play October 2018

“Really enjoyed the session, thank you. Was great to see a maths session in action and I loved the songs to help the children learn days of the week and months. Lots of lovely areas to keep them busy. I was particularly impressed with the skeleton (XXX was pointing out areas of the body he knew) and the interactive whiteboard. The tunnel was fun outside with the torches. A fantastic event, thank you.”

“The stay and play session was extremely interesting and informative. It will enable us to ask Noah appropriate questions about his day at school. I enjoyed seeing XXX accessing the play materials. Of particular interest was the session led by Miss XXX at the beginning of the day. The children were so attentive and very keen to participate.”

“The set-up of the room was very creative and imaginative. It was nice to have a play and see what the children do in the mornings.”

“Really enjoyed the stay and play morning with XXX, lots to do and see, lots of interactions from teachers too. Well done to everyone.”
