Testimonials from Parents:


" . . . My child has been very happy at Orchard Park and this is due, in large part, to Mrs Gilhart's excellent work.  She has been endlessly sensitive to my child's emotional development and supportive of his needs - and I have seen the same care of other children in the Nursery Class.  She is quick to feedback on important points, which is reassuring to parents.  My child's writing and singing, in particular, have come on beautifully during his time under Mrs Gilhart's care (June 2018)


" . . . So once again, please let the Nursery Team know how grateful I am for all of their

hard work and support.  My son has turned into a different child since last

January and I am so pleased . . .  Thank you once again to you and your fab team." (Feb 2018)
