Parent Testimonials

We chose Craighead due to the unique setting and warm welcome that we received. The staff genuinely care about our children and have developed a lovely bond with them. My kids have a variety of activities throughout the day, lots of fresh air and good, home cooked meals. We’ve been a part of the Craighead family for three and half years and have yet to find a fault. A forward thinking and enthusiastic team who strive to provide the best.
Craighead is a rich learning environment and above all it is child centred and caring. It is a very much needed and valued resource for the community it serves and the people who work there are of the highest calibre. They are kind, caring and always striving for innovation and new excellence in the provision of early years education.
