This is a fantastic preschool and highly recommended. I am so grateful to the staff for the support and encouragement shown throughout the last year. They have never failed to amaze us parents with the dedication, enthusiasm, and hard work to keep things going and to encourage our children. My daughter has enjoyed every day at Newman and is now off to big school in September. Thank you for teaching her to learn and grow. It is so great to see how much she has grown in confidence and thrived. It truly is an amazing preschool. I have already signed up for my second daughter for 2022.

One of the best preschools in Orpington. My daughter enjoyed each and every day in the school with some lovely arts and craft activities done by her with the help of the staff, lots of playing and learning. Experienced staff, a very clean and hygienic environment for the kids to play and learn safely, we sent her to the school even during the pandemic days as the school was following strict measures. Each and every child is monitored and parents will be given a report on their progress with lots of lovely pictures in them. Parents are given the opportunity to work in the parent committee for the school which helps in great learning and experience in the background of running a school. Highly recommended for children in the age group 2-4 years.

I'm so sad that my youngest is now leaving and we won't be attending Newman Pre-school any more. They have made both of my children feel so settled and happy over the past years and we will the miss the wonderful ladies who work there very much. Thank you for always caring and all of your hard work.

When my daughter was due to start nursery we viewed several preschools, none of which 'felt right' until I visited Newman Pre-school. My daughter has been so happy during her time there, I'm genuinely sad its time for her to move on. All the staff are so friendly and welcoming to the children and parents alike. My daughter has gained so much confidence in her time there. I cannot recommend this preschool highly enough for its friendly and nurturing environment.

My son been attending Newman Pre-school for almost a year and we simply couldn't be happier with our choice. My son gets a bit upset at weekends as he misses preschool. Now my daughter is also attending Newman, she is loving it too, they are just brilliant.

All our children have loved their time with you and have gained so much.

We will continue to recommend the preschool so others can experience how lovely it is.

My daughter has been attending Newman Pre-School for 9 months now and I'm extremely happy with how she's getting on. The staff are excellent, all lovely ladies who clearly love what they do and the children they work with. My daughter absolutely adores them! There is always a great variety of activities available and it's great to see how she's been nurtured and grown in her time there. I've already got my second daughter lined up to start in the future. Can't recommend enough!

This is a wonderful pre-school. The staff are highly experienced and qualified and fantastic with the children, and many of them have been with the setting for a long time and clearly love their job and working together. The premises are excellent, especially the outdoor play area. Children have a choice of a large range of varied activities, covering the whole of the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) syllabus. My son went here as a shy toddler and grew so much in confidence that he was more than ready for 'big school' when the time came, and now his little sister has just started and is loving it. A warm and nurturing environment that will really help your child to thrive, and it also has a great parent community. I'm so happy that we found it.

So glad we picked this outstanding pre-school for our twins. They absolutely loved going to school every single day and always came back with stories about exciting stuff they did. This couldn't have happened without the wonderful and hardworking staff especially Heather! Thanks for keeping all us parents together and informed. It's lovely to be part of this wonderful community!

We couldn't have asked for more from the staff at Newman Preschool. They all clearly love what they do and their passion and positivity has been passed on to (our daughter)

Outstanding staff who go above and beyond – which makes for a very caring and enjoyable learning environment for our children.
Kathryn, 2016
To watch my son go into preschool in the mornings happily and independently so quickly, and to collect him with a huge smile on his face, is fantastic and a huge achievement. We are very impressed with the level of communication, care, support and variety of daily activities.
Katie, 2016
(My child) was made to feel so welcome and relaxed. She has made lots of friends and had a really lovely time. Newman will always be a special place for our family.

My son currently attends this wonderful preschool and I cannot recommend it highly enough! Every member of staff is lovely and they are so involved and caring with the children. My son has attended since September last year, when he was a little over two and he has developed so much in the time he has been there. His confidence and skills have leapt forward because of the encouragement and support he receives at Newman Preschool.
Jenny, 2013
Both my children attended Newman Pre-School. They both really enjoyed every minute of their time there. Excellent staff who they both loved. Newmans prepared them both for primary school when the time came and armed them both with the skills they needed at their age. Would not hesitate to recommend them and in fact lots of my friends have sent their children there and been just as happy.
Mary, 2013
All 3 of my sons have gone to the Newman Preschool Playgroup and have been very very happy. They provide a fun packed morning, where the children learn through play. I have never had any problems or causes for concern and find all members of staff, friendly, approachable but more importantly brilliant with the children. I cannot praise them enough!

This is a great pre-school, can't fault it. Now with an outside area there really isn't anything else they could do to improve it!! Can’t thank the staff enough for all their help and support with my children. My third child is already on the waiting list!! I'd definitely recommend this to friends (in fact I already have!)
Lisa, 2012
I have had two daughters at Newman and my third starts in September. I found it by accident when my eldest had to move nursery at short notice, but I wish I had found it before. The staff really care about the children and their education, and it shows in the relationship they have with the kids. It has a really warm friendly atmosphere, and everyone is very approachable if you should have any queries. It has a very strong parent’s association that throws everything into supporting the school. My children loved every second. My second daughter used to throw tantrums because it was Saturday and she couldn't go to school!! A "must" when looking at preschools.
