Here is what some of our student's, past and present, have to say about us
‘I was lucky to be placed at Allexton Nursery for part of my second year Speech and Language Therapy placement. Myself and my two other student peers from DMU, delivered ICAN’s Early Talk Boost program to a small group of children for eight weeks at the nursery. Barbara and the other members of staff at Allexton have been so supportive, they did everything they could to give us the best experience possible; from getting resources printed for us, to making the time for us to deliver activities for our key children.
Barbara, as the nursery’s student coordinator, has been of great support to me both whilst at the nursery and via email. Nothing has ever been too much trouble, and it has been so lovely to hear about Barbara’s plans to further support the children at the nursery who have additional needs.
The nursery itself is very welcoming and friendly, I always felt very at ease and relaxed in the atmosphere they have created. I have loved working with the children, and the staff and my placement has been so enjoyable – on my last day we couldn’t believe it was the end of my placement!
