We were extremely fortunate to come across Atchison Cottage & Preschool over 8 years ago. When I entered the cottage I instantly knew by the atmosphere this was the centre for my daughter. It had a sense of warmth and care about it and staff were smiling and happy. Likewise when our daughter moved to the preschool we found the same atmosphere and warmth from the preschool teachers. Our second daughter has also attended the cottage and is currently enrolled at the preschool, enjoying the school readiness program. I can honestly say the teachers at the centre go above and beyond. They provide innovative, educational opportunities all within a safe and supportive environment. The outdoor play area with the vegetable garden enables children to extend learning to practical lifelong skills. The teachers love the children as if they are their own. My daughter counts down the days each week, waiting with excitement to see her friends and tell her teachers what she has been up to.
