When I made the decision to move my daughter to Barn Owls I knew it was right, but I couldn’t have predicted how much my daughter has grown and developed. It’s made me so proud. Barn Owls staff are friendly, approachable and truly care about the children. They get to know them and ensure activities are planned that they enjoy. This is the beauty of a small setting. Barn Owls also offer additions which really make it unique, my daughter has yoga which has been positive activity inside and outside the setting with her sharing her skill at home as well!
We felt the our son was in good hands and was really cared for during his time at Barn Owls. He really enjoyed his time with you. Thank you for all the efforts you made with him, and all the possibilities he was introduced to. What a fantastic place! Thank you Barn Owls!
We were thrilled when we found Barn Owls – A small, well run and unique preschool in a lovely setting. We were even more pleased on meeting Joanna to hear her sheer enthusiasm for her profession, and nurturing the children in her care. We have found Barn Owls to be a very professionally run preschool that maintains a really playful and happy atmosphere. The staff are excellent. There isn’t the destabilising turnover of staff that we have experienced in large nurseries and preschools. If you are after a setting where children get one-on-one attention, are allowed to let their imaginations lead the day, encourages them to make lasting friendships and builds their confidence, we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Barn Owls.
We could not be happier with Barn Owls and it’s fantastic staff. It’s friendly, fun, ever changing and an engaging setting. It’s simply great! There is so much for the children to do and that’s without the extras like yoga and baking. The staff really know and care about each child which makes it a place children look forward to coming to. I have never known so many children run to the door to get in in the morning! This just speaks volumes! I have recommended Barn Owls to friends who’ve since started their children at Barn Owls too. They are also very Happy!
Barn Owls you’re great! You’ve certainly exceeded our expectations!
The team at Barn Owls are warm, friendly and attentive to our daughter. She has flourished since we her from another nursery. We wouldn’t be happier with the way the team provide a safe, positive & fun environment for all the children. I always highly recommend Barn Owls to other parents as a wonderful preschool for their son or daughter.
Upon moving home to Upper Shirley, I found myself in the position of having to source a new nursery/pre school for my 3 year old son. After researching lots of nurseries in the area, there was one in particular that caught my eye, and that was Barn Owls. With excellent reviews and based in a lovely little setting, next to a bowling green, with a lovely play area outside, which looked onto a little field, it just seemed too good to be true! On contacting the owner, Joanna Stallard I was invited around to Barn Owls for a visit, upon which, I immediately had such a lovely feel for. Barn Owls is a smaller nursery/pre-school, compared to many others in the area that I visited, which in my view (and having had the experience of other nurseries) is so much better for the children and their development. I very much liked what Joanna had to say about her ‘vision’ for the nursery and felt comforted by both her values and her extensive experience in childcare.
Barn Owls is a very friendly preschool with very approachable staff, they made my child feel safe and happy. I’m so pleased I picked Barn Owls Preschool. Having longer hours has made my working life so much easier too. When I leave my child in the morning I know there’s a fun filled day ahead.
Our daughter thoroughly enjoyed her time at Barn Owls, learning far more from this pre-school setting than she could ever have achieved through nursery. A friendly environment with knowledgeable staff, helped to create an exceptional ethos in which she felt part of the ‘Barn Owls’ family. Not only did she develop and grow as an individual, but she has made friends for life which she takes with her into her early school years. It is for these reasons that we are delighted to hear that Barn Owls will be continuing with Mark and Jo, and we very much look forward to sending our youngest daughter here in September.
