Little Oaks Nursery School Folkestone

Grounds of the Primary Academy, Park Farm Rd, Folkestone CT19 5DN, UK – 01303 850203

My children have attended this nursery for many months now, and I have to say as parents we are delighted with our children's progress. The staff cannot do enough to help, and we are always greeted with a smile every morning. I am expecting my 3rd baby in the summer and there is no doubt in my mind that little oaks will be the pre school of my choice again. If you are looking for a nursery, pay them a visit you will not be disappointed. Just want to say thank you girls for everything you do :-)

It is with great sadness that we have to say a fond farewell to you all. Over the last 7 years have cuddled, cared and loved our children. They would not be the children they are now without you and you have made a huge benefit to their lives. We are truly grateful for all your care and support and you have made us feel that we are all one big family.

Marolyn is approachable, friendly and tailors her tuition to her student's individual needs. She tutored my eldest daughter through her 11+ and as a result my daughter achieved full marks in her Kent test!! She is now coaching my youngest daughter to do the same. Marolyn is also fluent in so many languages that she even helped my eldest with her Latin homework!! Her rates are extremely reasonable and she is very flexible with scheduling her appointments.

Marolyn has tutored my two boys for Kent test also eldest for maths GCSE, all with excellent results , friendly and accommodating , happy to recommend her .
