We could not be more pleased with the wonderful year that our child has had at Iverna Gardens. Thank you, thank you for providing such a warm and educational environment for his development. We have tremendous respect for you as an educator. I am particularly grateful for our open communication and your responsiveness to my concerns. He has thrived under your care and we are very grateful to you.
It is with all our heart that we would like to thank you for the time, care and advice you have given to our three little children over these years. We will terribly miss Iverna Gardens and cherish its memories dearly.
What a joy to belong to such a wonderful and caring nursery school, which Mummy says has set me up for the most happy school years ahead of me. I will miss you all very much but maybe in time I can help Mummy pick my sister up from school at certain times of the year. Thank you for always being there and being such an important person in our lives.
You more than almost anyone have been an integrated part of our seven years in the UK, from moving to Iverna Gardens a week after we moved here to this year’s adventures! We can’t thank you enough for all the joyous memories, fondness, enthusiasm and learning involved. I am still so impressed by your observations in the school report – very perceptive.
What can we say? It has been the most amazing nine years that we have known at Iverna Gardens and we have seen our children have such a happy and rewarding time at the school. We can’t say goodbye because everything about Iverna Gardens has been hello and an awakening to everything in life . You know we will always be in touch and our children will always have a wonderful, strong bond with the Montessori teaching you have upheld so wonderfully. We are your biggest fans. Miss Felicity, you are the most amazing teacher, thank you for everything you have done for our three boys and for all the children in the future, who will love you as much as we do.
Dearest Felicity. I don’t know where to start. I have had the happiest three years at Iverna Gardens and couldn’t have asked for a better boss and good friend. Not only are you an inspirational teacher but you have supported me when I needed it and you have been so understanding of the increasing pressures of the bump. How can I phrase this? You are one of those people who has changed my life’s path for the better and I am so grateful to have met you.
