What parents say

“I don’t think I will be able to adequately put into words just how grateful I am for everything you have done for my son and my husband and I. You guided us through an incredibly emotional journey with love and understanding. You took an overwhelming fear I had of being parted from my son, away completely. You gave him an amazing gift – the enjoyment of school! In turn that has given me so much peace, knowing that his first experience of schooling has been a wonderful one. For that I am forever indebted to you.”

“Seeing the change in our daughter over the last six months has been wonderful. She is (mostly!) confident, inquisitive, eager to learn and most importantly – HAPPY!”

“Our daughter has had a brilliant time at Bertrum, we’ve witnessed her confidence skyrocket over the last months.”

“I feel that you really understand my son, and all his quirks and funny ways, and we are very grateful for your care and attention to his development, as with all the children.”

I’m not sure I can adequately express just how grateful my husband and I are for everything you and your wonderful team have done for our son – and for us too!
