I am writing this testimonial with immense gratitude and fondness for the wonderful experience my family and I have had at University Nursery School. Having been a part of the UNS family for several years, I can confidently say that it has been a nurturing and enriching environment for my children.
My son, now thriving in 1st grade at another school, began his educational journey in the preschool program at UNS. The teachers' love and compassion were evident from day one. They not only provided a secure and caring atmosphere but also played a crucial role in preparing him exceptionally well for the challenges of kindergarten. Their dedication to fostering a love for learning set a strong foundation for his academic success.
Similarly, my daughter started in the toddler room at UNS and has since progressed to the P3 class. As she prepares to embark on her kindergarten adventure next year, I find myself reflecting on the invaluable experiences she has gained at UNS. The supportive and encouraging environment has been instrumental in her social and emotional development, as well as laying the groundwork for a seamless transition to formal schooling.
One of the aspects that truly sets UNS apart is the exceptional dedication of the teachers. Their commitment goes beyond the classroom, as they actively involve families in the educational journey. The regular communication and involvement opportunities have made us feel like an integral part of our children's growth and learning.
I also want to express my deep appreciation for the support I received during a tough transitional period in my life. The teachers at UNS were not only educators but also pillars of support, providing understanding and encouragement when it was needed most.
As my family prepares to transition out of UNS with my daughter moving on to kindergarten, I can't help but feel a twinge of sadness. UNS has become more than just a daycare; it has been a second home for my children, filled with love, care, and exceptional learning experiences.
In conclusion, I wholeheartedly recommend University Nursery School to any parent seeking a nurturing, educational, and supportive environment for their children. UNS has played a pivotal role in shaping my children's early years, and for that, my family and I are truly grateful.

Warm regards,
Madeleine R.
