What Other Parents Have To Say

I would say that the group was great at treating each child as an individual and encouraging them in their own interests and ideas.

My son loved 2’s group and playgroup. He grew in confidence with the help and support of the staff. He became a little person with a mind of his own. He had so much fun learning about animals, nature, recycling etc; all of which have been a positive learning experience to which he still talks about with great enthusiasm.

My daughter attended 2’s group and playgroup at AU5’s and loved them both. From being a shy little girl who liked to sit back and observe, she has become much more confident and outgoing which has helped her settle quickly into her preschool setting. In her words, ‘she loved everything at playgroup’

Auchterellon under 5’s is a wonderful place, both my children have attended and my eldest still wishes he could go! The staff are caring, supportive and go out of their way to help. The level of teaching is fantastic; they really do get to know each child and their individual needs.

I was lucky enough for AU5S to be my sons local playgroup when we moved to the area 6 years ago. He has now left of course but our youngest will be starting 2’s next year. I was the Chair then for 3 years and am the Chair again now in anticipation of my youngest starting. I love the group, it’s small enough that the staff really get to know the children. I know, as Chair and a mum, that the group is consistently working towards fulfilling the guidelines set out by the Care Inspectorate, Child at the Centre 2 and the CfE. Maintaining a high standard of care in preschool setting is not easy. AU5S do it well and the staff are always trying to improve.
