Here are a few testimonials from some of our happy parents:

Rachel & Tony

Hello, I wanted to say a huge thank you to Lisa and Emily for supporting Florence in making the transition to preschool. It’s been such a challenge for her and one that she seems to finally be accepting. I’m so incredibly proud that she hasn’t cried this week!

Receiving Bertie bear has filled her with happiness this afternoon and I wanted to email to say thank you for recognising my daughter’s sensitive and anxious nature but also working with her to support her so well. 

I couldn’t ask for a better environment for her preschool. You are both working wonders with her and we are so grateful. 

Thank you, a million times over, for taking such care of our gorgeous girl. 

Rachel & Tony 


I noticed the Change

Thank you all so much. I noticed the change in Sade this past month. She loves going in to see you all.
Best regards 


Amazing staff, very friendly and welcoming! My daughter loves pre-school and they make learning fun! Couldn't be happier.


Hi Jane

We had parent teacher meeting for Andre on Thursday and you will be pleased to know that the teacher is very impressed with Kia Mena as both Andre and Caspar are the only 2 in the class who are able to identify all the sounds and are flying through phonics!  When I told the teacher that Andre is writing words in a book and using his sound book from preschool she asked 'what?  He did phonics at preschool?  No wonder he and Caspar are flying through'. She was very impressed.   I am so pleased with the choice we made in putting Andre at Kia Mena.  I recommend it to everyone.  We miss you all.



Kia Mena is a wonderful nursery and our children absolutely love coming each day. We can certainly see the progress they've made in their time with Kia Mena.


Hi Jane

I hope you are keeping well. I just thought I’d feed something back to you regarding Mya. She’s been at school for quite a few weeks now and they have been put into reading groups. She’s in the top group and if what she is telling me is correct (!), so are the other Kia Mena girls!!! Just thought I’d let you know as its testament to the work she did with you. We are very pleased!




Betty has had the best year at Kia Mena. I have always felt happy leaving her as I know she will have a great morning!


My Son Ozzie had a wonderful time at Kia Mena. He came home every day telling me different things that he had achieved and always had a painting or model to bring too! He felt very grown up when he was moved to the older children's room and enjoyed learning in the slightly quieter atmosphere. He still talks about Kia Mena and would love to come and visit!

Professional and kind team. Children and parents are put at ease from the start and the children look happy! Would definitely recommend Kia Mena to my friends


Both my boys attended Kiamena and I can certainly say it gave them the best start and made the transition to primary school very easy. The teachers were easy to approach and were more than happy to discuss any problems if indeed there were any. My younger son keeps asking when he can go back!



Brilliant pre-school, both of my Children felt very happy and secure, would highly recommend


Fantastic Pre-School! 

My daughter Darcie enjoyed every minute of her time at Kia Mena.

I couldn't have chosen a better Pre School to prepare my daughter for primary school.

The staff are all absolutely amazing and couldn't wish for better people to be looking after my little ones.

I can't wait for her little brother to join them in 2014. 

Highly Recommended!!



Isabel moved to Kia Mena from another nursery and we immediately saw a leap in her confidence and happiness. Thank you to all at Kia Mena for your great work.
