'We had struggled to find a place where both my children would love going
and where I would feel comfortable leaving them, until we found 'The Arc'! Their overwhelming kindness and acceptance over the years has been a blessing and kept us coming back year after year. A home from home!'
- Tralee Lashley, Parent.
STAFF ARE FANTASTIC
'My twins have attended Woolpit Arc since they were 3 years old. They are
8yrs now and still attend the breakfast and after school clubs. They get upset when they are not going! The Arc staff are fantastic and I rely on them heavily. They are very flexible and it's great value for money. Many Thanks.'
- Shona Lingham, Parent.
ATMOSPHERE IS HOMELY
'My two children adore Woolpit Arc holiday club! They want to go every day!
The atmosphere is homely and friendly and they are so many things to do.
The activities are just up their street... from loom bands and slime making,
to water play and ride ons! They just have the best time everyday. I never hesitate to recommend The Arc for an excellent, reasonably priced holiday club for school/pre-school aged children. Thanks.'
- Frances Hall, Parent.
'All my children have attended Woolpit Arc. They have enjoyed the pre-school, breakfast club, after school club and holiday club. The staff are very nurturing and make the children feel comfortable. They also take an interest in what each child likes to do and plan activities around them. They are a very patient, polite and friendly team with a passion for their job which shines through. They happily assist with any problems that arise and help you to sort them out. We would be lost without Woolpit Arc in our village and community. It is really lovely if we see any staff outside of the Arc too as they always take the time to speak to the parents and child/children showing they care deeply.'
LOVED EVERY MINUTE
'Both my daughters attended this preschool from the age of 2 and loved every minute. The staff took the time to really get to know my children’s interests and based activities around what they loved to do. My children still go there today for breakfast, after school and holiday club and have never had a bad word to say about it! I would recommend this to place to anyone looking for either preschool or childcare services when schools are closed.'
- Gemma Warnekey, Parent.
WHAT PARENTS SAY...
NURTURING & CARING
'Such a nurturing and caring environment for young children to learn and play. I cannot recommend Woolpit Arc enough! With a caring and expert team I love seeing my two year old develop and enjoy her preschool environment.'
- Charlotte Debney, Parent.
'Amazing pre-school with a highly skilled and supportive team! My kids absolutely love it here for Pre-school, After School Club and Holiday Club. Highly recommended.' - Filipa Goncalves, Parent.
STAFF ARE AMAZING
'All 3 of my children have enjoyed their time at pre-school here and the staff are amazing.'
- Sammi Sieve, Parent.
EACH CHILD AS AN INDIVIDUAL
'All three of my children have been to Woolpit Arc. My youngest is currently there. Every time we walk in there is something exciting going on whether
it be moving stick insects into their new home or racing the wind-up toys!
This is a place that looks at each child as an individual. My older son was
very interested in woolly mammoths, so Sarah helped him make a museum! The staff here can do it all ! They communicate well with parents and other settings your child may be at. They also deal beautifully with transition from Pre-School to school. We had to move school with my second child suddenly and the Arc helped him prepare so he was ready. Confidence and individuality flourish here. Thanks girls - a great team!' - Benny Rice, Parent.
5 STAR CHILDCARE CENTRE
'5 star childcare centre with lots of things to love. My girls went there in preschool and now use the after school club and holiday club. The staff are always very friendly and have so many lovely activities for all the children to do, they will never be bored. The preschool children do lots of activities and staff use online learning journals (tapestry) to take photos of what they have been doing. The young children are prepared so very well for school (even if they are not going to Woolpit Primary). Couldn't recommend them enough and I would be lost without their help and support!!!'
- Catherine Brain, Parent.
'Over 9 years I've seen the effects of cuts and the need for regular fundraising to sustain this wonderful gem in the centre of our village. Its a Godsend for mums of pre-schoolers, parents that need care before and after school so they can work or study and a lifeline during holidays when you just need that time to be able to get things done. We don't have any childminders in the village and so many of us would be lost without the Arc.'
