Testimonials

"The Little House is a special place.  Over ten years my three, very different children have thrived in the true Montessori environment.  The highly experienced staff guide, educate, care for and inspire every child as they journey through the precious early years.  By reception age The Little House children are well equipped with the skills needed to settle in and succeed." Lucy Hammond
"The Little House is a unique and special place where I watch my daughter Natasha develop and flourish.  Every morning I am asked 'please may I go to The Little House today?' and every time I pick Natasha up I am asked 'please may I stay at The Little House?'  This is testimony in itself. The individual attention that each child receives is incredible and the wonderful teachers know how to get the best out of each child.  They instinctively know their strengths and weaknesses and encourage them to blossom at their own pace giving them confidence and belief in themselves.  Friends watch in disbelief as Natasha pours them drinks and passes round biscuits,all skills which are taught at The Little House. The Little House teaches good manners and etiquette which I believe gives a solid foundation for their future.  The work that Natasha comes home with shows their well rounded education, from painting to baking, cutting out to being able to count in French, noticing the song of a black bird.  Natasha has real pride in telling me what she has done and the enthusiasm in which she describes her day fills me with such happiness. The Little House really cares and the love and warmth and passion for the well being of their children shines from their windows.  My only regret is that they can't stay till they're eighteen.” Laura Grice
"Miss Su Su is a great teacher and fun.  At The Little House all the teachers took care of us, I felt part of a family.  I learnt lots about letters and numbers and I went on many adventures with my wellies on.  I hope that one day my children will go to The Little House School." William Daniels, 7 years
"From the moment I walked through the door of The Little House, met Miss Su Su and her team, I was instantly convinced.  A room of happy, glowing and vibrant little people, all going about their individual and varied tasks with such quiet concentration, pride and obvious enjoyment, was a joy to behold.  The Little House exudes such a calm and happy environment full of warmth, gentle nurturing and guidance for all to thrive and learn in. On meeting Miss Su Su, her terrific passion, dedication and devotion for all the children in her care, their individual needs for their learning was immediately obvious to me.  As a result, Rosie's application form was immediately submitted.  A place for her was our very definite priority!  It was the best decision of our lives, Rosie and Jack are now at The Little House, daily thriving in such a unique environment.  My only regret is that it's such a shame our children can't stay with Miss Su Su at The Little House until they are 18! So I give my wholehearted endorsement to any prospective parents of The Little House.  It's a huge comfort to know we've given them the happiest of starts and a terrific foundation for life and their further education, by sharing them with the truly exceptional Miss Su Su and her wonderful team." Stefanie Swallow
"The Little House is more than just a pre-school.  A wonderful environment where children have individual focus from the teachers and are encouraged to be independent, caring and respectful of one another.  All 3 of our children have attended The Little House and have learnt valuable skills to prepare them for school, and for life. It is a very special place where children learn, play and flourish." Joanne Napier
"Education should be fun and a magical experience.  This is what Su Su creates with her devotion, love, understanding and experience to enable each small child to flourish in a warm, cosy and secure environment."  Angie Robertson

THE LITTLE HOUSE
“I sent my three very different children to The Little House and they flourished there. The best start any parent could give their child. My children developed confidence and a love of learning at The Little House.” Rachel McGrath
“The Little House is exceptional, as are the ladies who run it. Their attention to each child as an individual is second to none and children flourish in this environment, where they are encouraged to learn in so many different ways, whether through art, music, drama, playing in the garden or with the Montessori equipment, growing vegetables or learning French. It is a truly unique nursery setting and one which I cannot recommend highly enough. Our three older children all thrived there. It prepared them beautifully for school and they have so many happy memories, not least being allowed to ring the school bell on their birthday and making lemonade for snack on special occasions!” Heidi Purvis
“My Montessori education at The Little House taught me tenacity, self discipline, motivation and respect for others.  Which has helped me tremendously in starting and running my own business.” Edwin Brooker, Director Epic Polymers Distribution UK
“The Little House is a special place.  It is so evident that the children have fun but in an orderly learning environment.  Our daughter, Lily, has benefitted greatly from her time at The Little House.  She hasn’t once hesitated to greet her teachers at the door.  It is a warm and caring environment where she can enjoy herself but at the same time begin to be taught the basics of mathematics and language.  As parents, we have really enjoyed the demonstration evenings, seeing first hand the activities Lily has completed during the day.  The wonderful objects the children handle give them a firm basis for the Montessori principles of independence, confidence but consideration for others.  Lily has brought all of these attributes home with her.  Su Su has reported that Lily has such great determination to succeed.  The quality of the teachers and the environment Su Su has created allow these character traits to blossom.  The teachers clearly give attention and encouragement to each child to enjoy their successes and not be beaten by their failures. We look forward to our youngest daughter starting her own journey at The Little House and encourage other parents to benefit from this unique environment and give their children the best possible start to their learning.“ Matthew and Faye Coates
"The Little House is the best possible pre-school we could have found for our daughters. The staff are extremely adept at getting to know the girls and discovering their individual personalities. Their strength and weaknesses were quickly identified and the level of effort put in by the staff to guide them through the early years has far surpassed any expectation of a pre-school setting I had. " Katie Green 
“As a Primary School teacher myself, and after a short notice relocation from London to Cheshire, I hunted for a Montessori to rival my daughters outstanding London Montessori Nursery.  Thankfully I discovered Miss Su Su and her enchanting school.  On visiting her, and seeing The Little House in action, this became our pinpoint on the map for finding somewhere to live.  I don’t regret basing our location near The Little House one bit!  With its traditional values of excellent manners, natural communication skills and a high standard of learning my daughter has been ridiculously happy there and made sensational academic, social and physical development. The Little House has a high teacher to pupil ratio; all of the teachers are delightful, and most importantly love and nurture the children for the unique individuals that they are.  The teachers’ expertise has helped my daughter become incredibly independent.  With the Montessori methods promoting excellent gross and fine motor skills, she can now turn her hand to numerous practical activities and has excellent control of a pencil when doing letter and number formation.  With terminology book creations produced by the children, alongside numerous other speech and language opportunities within the classroom, she has a vocabulary that regularly amazes me and others around her.  The Montessori method of learning promotes invaluable key skills for future learning and life.  During my daughter’s time at The Little House she has developed an enquiring mind, a thirst for new knowledge and skills, but most importantly the confidence and desire to love education as she embarks on her formal schooling for many years ahead. The Little House is a hidden gem.  Those lucky enough to be a part of it will undoubtedly remember it forever – for all of the right reasons.  I feel enormously fortunate to have a younger daughter who will also benefit and grow from her time there too.  Now I just need to pray that we don’t need to relocate again in the next two years so that she too may have the full experience of this sensational school and the fantastic people behind it!” Ellie Colby Butcher
