We share some of the testimonials kindly contributed by some of the children's parents who are currently attending, or have attended Tiggywinkles Pre-School, or have been in learning environments led by members of our experienced team

Hannah is having a wonderful time at Tiggywinkles. She has been coming for 3 weeks now and has already changed so much in this time. Her self confidence has grown, her vocabulary is astounding and she talks about all her teachers and friends on a daily basis. We feel so confident when we drop Hannah, as the staff are so warm and caring and show so much interest in Hannah when she arrives. I never thought I would see Hannah playing Rugby but this is a particular favourite of hers. Thank you for looking after her like she is one of your own.

We couldn’t be luckier to have found Tiggywinkles for our 2 1/2 year old bilingual daughter who started at Tiggywinkles in January 2019.

What we like so much about Tiggywinkles pre-school is that it promotes diversity and as part of that our daughter celebrated her first Chinese New Year which she thoroughly enjoyed.

The lovely Julie and her wonderful team is truly encouraging and caring and 

it’s a joy to see our daughter’s big smile on her face when picking her up after a day full of exciting activities and socialising with all the other lovely children.

Thank you so much for giving her the best learning journey start possible.

Julie has a true passion and love for what she does, which shines through in the happiness of the children who are lucky enough to attend her amazing pre-school. Choosing Tiggywinkles was one of the easiest and best decisions we've made as parents

Mr and Mrs Pattison [2019]

After moving to Bracknell early last year, we were keen to find Elliot a nursery/ preschool in the local area. We had no idea where to start looking, but were luckily given a recommendation to check out Tiggywinkles. We booked a visit and not long after arriving and chatting to Julie and Andrew we knew this was the right place for our son. Julie and Andrew were and are delightful and we are so privileged to have found such an amazing preschool. The team they have are fabulous, they really invest into the children they are working with and this is clear to see from school reports and one to one chats. As parents this totally puts you at ease knowing their sole intention is to help develop and better your child's education/wellbeing amongst teaching them tons of new things too. We are 100 percent pleased with Tiggywinkles and highly recommend this preschool

Mr and Mrs Reeves [2019]

We feel extremely privileged to be sending our very happy son Montgomery to Tiggywinkles, he is so relaxed and cheerful from when he starts his day to when he comes home. We know from visiting Tiggywinkles weekly that this is an excellent pre-school which has a welcoming, loving and nurturing environment. Our son is valued and respected and he is able to thrive and flourish in his friendships and behaviours to become an enthusiastic, independent, lifelong learner.


A big thank you to the truly wonderful team that you all are at Tiggywinkles, and for being so welcoming to our family. It is a pleasure to see all your hard work, dedication and passion in creating the most happy precious memories for Montgomery in a safe, engaging and caring environment that will be part of who he is for the rest of his life.


Mr and Mrs Campbell [2019]

Tiggywinkles was the first preschool we visited and the last! We enrolled Ella, who was two in Jan 2019, and she absolutely loves it! The whole experience has been very positive and from day one I have felt extremely comfortable leaving Ella with Mrs Julie and her brilliant team. Thank you Tiggywinkles for making Ella’s preschool journey such a smooth one!

Mr and Mrs Clark [2019]

We never ever thought we would find a pre-school that we would all love as much as we do. Both children attend together and they absolutely love it....they have learnt so much and have made friends for life!! Julie, Sasha, Ali, Jo, Fran and the team are INCREDIBLE and they care for our children with such love that the children consider them as family. Getting them dressed in the morning on a school day is so easy (it hasn’t ever been before) because they can’t wait to get there! Honestly we can’t believe how lucky we are to have found Tiggywinkles...we’re just so sad they can’t stay there until university!

Mrs Niaz Quatan [2019] 

Tiggywinkles was such an amazing find. Such a lovely and welcoming Preschool, with such a great team. They have taken the time to really get to know my son, and he is always so excited to go and see Mrs Julie, Mrs Sasha and Mrs Ali đŸ˜Š

Mrs Kate Rabjohns [2019]

We were deeply saddened when the pre-school Rudy was already attending closed down in the Spring term 2018, especially as the one we had moved him from had also closed down earlier at short notice. We were very worried about moving him for a third time as he was still very young and quite sensitive. However, Julie and Andrew were completely engaging and warm right from the offset and couldn’t have been more accommodating. They made sure that the children that came from the previous school had a smooth transition by employing their former teacher for the Summer term (she had another job to go to after that). They held welcome mornings to help ready the children, visited them in the previous school before it officially closed, and included many of the Montessori materials that the children had been used to. On the day Rudy started at Tiggywinkles, he didn’t even look back he was so excited, and he’s been that way ever since. They understand him completely and care for him as we do at home. The school itself is beautiful, clean and well equipped with interesting and considered materials. The atmosphere is welcoming and friendly and the children are all very happy. If you are looking for a pre-school, make it Tiggywinkles. We cannot recommend it enough.

Nestled amongst the green fields of Winkfield and the village church, you will find the lovely Tiggywinkles, a happy Pre-school, run by Julie and her dedicated team. 
Our daughter, Katherine (4), has made a very smooth transition into this community and was not only nurtured and challenged, but celebrated, as it was evident that the staff all enjoyed being around the children. 
Tiggywinkles offers many options including half day, full day (and if available ad-hoc sessions, by prior arrangement, can be accommodated), varied activities run by specialists like music, French and rugby tots, and very importantly, delicious home made hot lunches!
I would not hesitate to send my child to Tiggywinkles. Thank you Julie and team for giving our daughter the happiest memories of her pre-school years!’

Mrs L - Berkshire [2018]

As both a mother and a child psychologist, I highly recommend Tiggywinkles as a pre-school. My focus when looking for a pre-school for my son and daughter was one which focused on attachment and building my children’s confidence to thrive socially, emotionally and academically. Tiggywinkles is certainly fulfilling that aim and I am so happy to have them! They take a caring and nurturing approach, which I believe is so important at this early age to foster a child’s emotional wellbeing. Alongside this, I have been impressed with how much learning takes place using methods which engages children (as opposed to make them feel stressed). I cannot rate this school highly enough.

Jen Page [2018]

Julie Stephens is the most amazing teacher I could have ever possibly hoped for. My daughter absolutely loves her and still asks when Mrs Stephens can be her teacher again! She makes learning fun and children feel valued, loved and safe. I can highly recommend any parent to entrust their children to Julie's preschool.

Mrs Swanston-Powell [2018]

Daisy blossomed during pre-school and has become a happy confident child. I can’t thank Julie enough for all the things you have done to guide and nurture her through her time at preschool. She loved going everyday!
