Lavington Kindergarten is by far and away the best school in this area. We had two of our own children, very different personality’s, go through the school, and both absolutely thrived.  

They made firm friends with two other children there, and all four have stayed friends for the last ten years. 

From Lavington they each got a strong foundation not only in how to learn, but how to interact & how to be great with each other & all those around them. 

All four have gone on to excel in many ways.  One the head boy at Braeburn, one onto a Leadership Scholars programme at Pembroke and now Hillcrest, one is excelling as a master sportsman at Hillcrest, and one secured an very generously assisted place at one of the UK’s leading boarding schools.

It speaks volumes of the kind of creativity, responsbility and confidence encouraged by the school. Over the years I have become an expert of sorts in what to look for in a school both here and in the UK. The success of the school is always driven by the commitment, love and thinking of the headteacher. Carol Heitemier’s commitment is extraordinary, her compassion rare, her experience invaluable.

Lavington may not have the biggest shiniest of facilities, but it is exactly the kind of school I would want to go if I could have my time over. In fact we have a third child starting there next term and we are so looking forward to her already bubbly character blossoming even more under Mrs Hetimeir’s nurturing and stimulating care.
