St Edmunds Pre-School Kindergarten
My two daughters went to St Edmunds preschool and I can truly say that they both have had wonderful learning experiences. The teachers are really caring and create a great atmosphere for the children to explore and learn. The children are divided into two groups (mornings and afternoons) based on age group, ensuring that they all get along well together. I would happily recommend St Edmunds preschool to anyone!

Learning in a loving & nuturing environment
St Edmunds is an OUTSTANDING pre-school which is fully attributable to the brilliant staff & management team. Their ethos & methods are perfectly suited to maximising toddler learning, gives 2-4 yr olds the best introduction to learning & enjoyment thereof. Our 3 children attended St Edmunds; eldest is finishing yr 8, middle returns as a yr 6 after summer & our little one has just started at St Edmunds. She absolutely loves it & the staff still remember her big brothers. Best decision made!

A home from home
St Edmund's is a loving, nurturing and welcoming pre-school. I couldn't have asked for my little girls recent transition into education to be any better, all down to the professional, warm and caring staff who make each child feel special.

Three happy kids!
Our three children have all attended St Edmund's and have all had lovely experiences there. We've been attending the pre-school non-stop for the past 5 years and although it has seen some major transitions, it has gone from strength to strength. The fabulous staff have remained a constant in our childrens' lives with the same ladies caring for all of them. Our youngest will be leaving this summer as he is going off to school, and we'll be extremely sad to be saying goodbye. Thanks to you all

The loveliest pre-school in town!
I have nothing but praise for St Edmunds. My little girl has been there for a year and a half and loves it. She looks forward to going in each morning and comes out smiling. The teachers have a brilliant attitude and manage to find the perfect balance between fun and discipline. I am always amazed at how calm, and well behaved all the children are when I walk in. Mrs Noad and her team really do an outstanding job!

My daugther has been in St Edmunds Pre-School for 1 year. She loved the staff and the activities (painting, singing, dancing, etc). We've noticed that she had a good improvement on her English, as English is not our first language. Also, the staff is very kind with the children and parents, when we had some questions or worries, they've always answered quickly.

The BEST preschool in Beckenham
My twins have attended St Edmunds for 2 years from 2011 to 2013 and have loved every second. The staff are caring, kind and nurturing, whilst teaching the children discipline in a gentle and loving way. They have daily focused activities and they often come home with works of art that they are very proud of. The staff are also very experienced with twins and helped mine to become more independent from each other, whilst also allowing them to be twins! Mrs Noad and her team are amazing.

My son has been attending St Edmunds since the beginning of 2013 and I am delighted to say it has exceeded every expectation .
The staff are friendly, professional and genuinely care about the children they have in their care. It's enthusing to see the children having lots of fun, learning through play alongside structure, routine & discipline, They have the balance just right and I for one am not at all surprised that they were recently awarded outstanding by Ofsted. Well deserved.

Excellent Pre School
My son started at St Edmunds in Jan 2013 and he has thoroughly enjoyed it there. The staff are caring, supportive and highly dedicated individuals who really care about the children (and parents!). The school is organised and calm with varied activities, and a good balance between play and learning. My son has gained confidence since he started and I cannot recommend this school more highly.

Lovely pre-school, staff are caring and kind
My son has really enjoyed attending this pre-school and will be sad to leave in a couple of weeks time. His confidence has improved significantly since he has attended. The staff are very genuine and caring about all of the children and my son is always happy and enthusiastic about his time at pre-school. The children always seem calm, happy and well behaved, this is a tribute to the care and attention they receive at St Edmunds.

My 2.5 year old son has been attending St Edmunds for a few months now and he loves it. He goes two mornings a week and will be attending more when he turns 3. He always goes in excited and comes out smiling and saying he has had fun. What more can you ask for?
The staff are all very good and my son is very comfortable with them, I cannot fault it so far, I looked at many pre schools before deciding on this one as it stood out a mile.
He has come on leaps and bounds since attending.

I thoroughly recommend this pre-school, my daughter is just about to leave as she will be starting school in September, St Edmund's has been an amazing start for her and she has grown in confidence as well as being in a loving, caring and safe environment.
Both my daughter and I are very sad to be leaving this wonderful place.

First class and highly recommended
I currently have my second child attending St Edmonds and we’re very glad we choose this pre-school. As we found with our first child and now our second, St Edmonds has given our children the best possible start to their education. While having so much fun (and being disappointed when I pick them up!!) they also get very well educated in so many areas. The teachers are friendly and helpful and the pre-school is also very well equipped. I would have no hesitation recommending St Edmonds.

An excellent, friendly pre-school
My son went St Edmund's and now my daughter and they have loved/love every minute of their time there. They have grown in confidence, learnt a great deal and prepared them very well for their next step school. The first thing that strunk me with St Edmund's was their warmth, their caring nature and their passion. Their professionalism and fantastic relationships they have with all their children and parents is lovely . I would highly recommend this pre-school.

an outstanding pre-school
The thing that first struck me about St Edmund's was the number of years of cumulative service of the staff. Many preschools suffer from high staff turnover but the longevity here is testament to what a wonderful place it is. Its not just experience which makes this preschool so fantastic. There is a great sense of community and the right balance between learning and play. My son is happy, stimulated and really enjoying himself. I love the fact that there are regular activities in the garden too

Warm, caring and supportive.
My daughter was very shy in big crowds and was very wary of lots of children as she had had a bad experience at another nursery. Since being at St Edmunds, her confidence has grown, she is a happier child and wants to go to pre-school every day. The staff are very warm and keep the parents involved. From my experience, the best pre-school in the area. My second daughter will also be going there..
