Staff testimonials

You have created a home for your staff and an environment that you don’t get at most jobs. I wish more than anything I did not have to leave this job because I will miss it so much. I have learned a great deal from my time at Park Academy and my passion for working with children has grown enormously. I will sincerely miss seeing their faces everyday and learning from them just as much as they learn from us.
Bailey Sandlin, former employee at Park Acdemy Childcare, Beacon Court

In the three years I have been at Cherrywood I have grown so much and loved it more and more each day. I have worked my way up from Childcare Practitioner to Student Supervisor, and then on to Team Leader – and I’m not stopping there! This is my passion and my dream and I truly owe it to my experience at The Park Academy.
Calla Seligman, Team leader at Park Academy Childcare Cherrywood
