Comments from our parents Summer 2019:

He always comes out full of smiles, he always looks like he has had a really fun day.


Thank you for helping him to settle so easily.


I couldn’t be happier with Plus Club.  I was ambivalent as to whether to even start him or  just wait until he started reception in September, but I’m so glad we did!  He loves each and every one of his teachers and comes home telling lots of funny stories from his day.  Staff feel more like family than teachers and I think that’ what helps make him feel so safe and secure.


I am so thankful Plus Club is attached to our local primary school.  Both my children attended Plus Club and both of them adore (d) their time there.  I can’t speak too highly of total care, attention and fun my children have been so lucky to enjoy at Plus Club- Thank you ladies - we love you so much.


Plus Club has brought my son out of his shell and he’s learnt so much coming to Plus Club.  You’ve really done an amazing job at getting him ready for reception in every way.


She has learnt so much, very impressed with all aspects of Plus Club.


Thank you for providing a wonderful place for her to go.

We asked our parents for their opinions on the strengths of Plus Club:


I feel as though my child is 100% safe and well looked after at Plus Club.  With him being there just a few months his speech and confidence has come on so much.


Excellent communication, great staff- friendly and approachable, excellent facilities, really good with difficult (specific) situations.


Everything and everyone at Plus Club is fab.  Everyone is friendly and she always loves to go to “school”


Fantastic place- the children’s happiness is important to them, it is like a big family.


Such a range of activities is brilliant.  He loves all the outdoor time.  The relationships and the way he talks about the staff is excellent.


Staff are really friendly- put him at ease straight away.  I have been so impressed by how quickly they have recognised effective ways to communicate/ reassure/ soothe him.  Especially during times of him feeling anxious and unsure.


All of the team at Plus Club are caring, gentle and treat the children as children.  I have never seen a member of staff talk down to a child or treat them with disrespect.  I just love the fact my little boy is so happy at Plus Club, he very rarely says goodbye to me.  He can’t wait for the day to start.  After 2 days at Plus Club we were treated to a rendition of “don’t forget your please and thank you’s at the dinner table!  The team there are amazing.


Everything!  Although she can be a pain going into Plus Club at times, I know she has lots of fun and staff always send a message to say she is settled.  I love seeing all the pictures that she brings home and listening to her stories about her day.


My son feels happy and confident in Plus Club, it’s brought his confidence up and has made lovely friends to start school with.  I can’t thank Plus Club teachers enough.


Caring atmosphere and staff, excellent education provided, lovely setting and equipment.


Plus Club is a lovely, warm and educational place and we have now put both our children in it and they have both absolutely loved it.  She has really come on in her speech, drawing and socialising and we are delighted.


Team work, good listening to the parents, cheerful and happiness.


Wide and varied activities, lots of outdoor play, happy loving environment.


Relationship with the children and parents, enthusiasm and professionalism


Staff - amazing!  Provision a wide range of activities, lovely setting -good outdoor space. Whiteboard with the days activities is great.


Great way to meet children before school starts, teaches the children so much, helps the child settle into the school environment.  Staff great with children, learns skills and independence, great way to mix with kids own age.


Very helpful staff. Including children in activities with Heswall Primary school.



These are reviews from Plus Club parents July 2018:
“Thank you for all the kindness and support you have given.”
“I couldn’t have asked for more for (my child’s) preschool experience. Such a fantastic, warm, loving environment, making him feel so safe and loved, so naturally the rest has just fallen into place around that. He has learned so much to get him ready for school.”
"Thank you, we will miss not being at Plus Club anymore”
“I don’t feel that there is anything to improve on. Fantastic setting for children.”
“Plus Club at Heswall Primary school has far exceeded any of our pre-school expectations and our child has enjoyed every second!”
“Thank you!! for keeping (our child) safe, happy and busy (as she likes to be)! and encouraging her playful side as much as all the developmental and learning areas. Also, for the beautiful folders, they have been great to chart her progress (and to see the fun things you all get up to!) I know not every pre-school or nursery offers such a detailed report with photos - so thanks v. much.”

We have added some reviews that some of our children's parents have written over the last few years.


She has had a brilliant time, always goes in and out of school smiling. I have been so impressed with your enthusiasm, imaginative ideas, learning skills and everything you do at Plus Club. I think you are all brilliant and I am so pleased she will be with you for another year. I can’t thank you enough!


He has really enjoyed playing outside, which is a wonderful space for young children. He’s enjoyed going to the hall and making so many different things related to things going on in the year. He has been so happy at Plus Club with his confidence and skills developing so much whilst there.


He has loved his year at Plus Club and although he is excited about starting school, he said he doesn’t want to leave pre-school! He has learnt so much from Plus Club and his face lights up when he talks about it and his teachers. I have been more than happy with every aspect of the provision.  The use of the outside space is great. The energy and enthusiasm of all the teachers is amazing! I really cannot praise Plus Club enough. Thank you for giving him a wonderful year in his life.


She has thoroughly enjoyed her time at Plus Club and she has learned so much and made lots of new friends. This has been a great stepping stone for her introduction into big school. The provision has been excellent, the teachers so friendly and approachable and the flexibility is a unique asset to Plus Club.


She has thoroughly enjoyed the past 6 months at Plus Club. So much so that she no longer wants to attend nursery and as a result will be attending Plus Club 5 mornings a week from September. We have been very happy with the provision. She has developed very quickly into a bright, energetic little girl who loves to tell you what she has done at Plus Club. We like the way you communicate what the children have done but still have time to tell you how your child has behaved and how they enjoyed their day.


She has really loved Plus Club and it has really helped her get ready for reception. Everyone is very lovely and made her time at Plus Club very enjoyable.


He has enjoyed Plus Club immensely. He has grown increasingly confident and always tells me on the way home what activities he has taken part in that day. I am so pleased with Plus Club.

She would be woken up in the morning and immediately ask ‘What day is it today Dad?’ To which we would reply ‘Plus Club day’ and she would always give a little cheer. She was always smiley and happy when I dropped her off and picked her up. You all do a fantastic job and it shows in all the children who attend.


She has LOVED Plus Club. She has obviously been engaged and challenged with interesting and varied activities every day. She has dearly loved running around in the fabulous grounds and the wonderful ways you make the most of these for celebrations like Christmas has been great. We couldn’t fault Plus Club. It has been the perfect start to her school life. Every single member of staff has been lovely and always smiling.


He has loved his time at Plus Club. We have been delighted with Plus Club (again!). We’ve seen him grow in confidence and develop. The small group afternoon sessions have been brilliant for him. Thank you for addressing any issues we have raised along the way.


The environment you all create here at Plus Club is just fabulous. Every day is different yet throughout it all – such a lot of love and caring – we couldn’t have asked for more!
