Jen Cosby – August 2016

I've had the pleasure of having both of my children attend the school for the last two years. The program and its facilitators have given my children exactly what they needed. My eldest would have been eligible for JK but we felt that she wasn't quite ready emotionally. She has blossomed during her time with this program and we feel she's now more than ready to face the social and emotional challenges ahead.

My son, who started as a toddler, was initially a shy observer but has become well socialized and an active participant in the class.

Not only have we enjoyed the opportunity of being able to observe these changes in our children during our duty days, but also getting to know the other children and their extended families. I'm very glad my family has been able to participate in the school and I hope it will continue to build confidence, social skills and emotional fitness in pre-school aged children for many more years to come.

Jayme Ferland – July 2015

Pre school educators are so important and undervalued as they truly set the stage for a child's success in the school system. For kid's not in daycare they are often the first adult outside of family to be trusted with their care -- and I have to say when it comes to this there is nobody better than Mrs. Muniak and Ms. Ingrao. They were my teachers 30 years ago and now both of my sons have had the privilege to be taught by them as well. I have nothing but good things to say about the school and I can honestly say that St. David's prepared my children for kindergarten in a way I couldn't have done on my own. I will forever be grateful for all that the teachers of St. Davids have done for my family.

Heidi Lambrechts – June 2013

We were referred to this school by a friend of ours who sent her three children to St. David's. They provide an environment that is encouraging, nuturing, structured and engaging. My children absolutely loved their time there and felt like a "big kids" because they were going to school. My experience with the staff at St. David's has been nothing but positive and I have highly recommended them to every one of my friends. The fees are very reasonable and the time required on the part of the parent is minimal. St. David's definetely prepared our children for elementary school!!!

Lydia Ward – June 2011

Today our daughter, Anita, graduated from university with a Bachelor of Education and we came home and watched a video tape of her "St. David's Graduation" almost 19 years ago. Mrs. Ingrao was her first teacher (also for our son Alex) and she had such a positive influence as an educator. We were so fortunate to have Mrs. Ingrao and Mrs. Muniak to be the first educators of our children who are now adults. How wonderful to learn that they are still teaching and so many children have be blessed by their love!

Alison Alexander & Dan Brunton – June 2011

Our daughter attended St. David's for two years before heading to Kindergarten in the fall of 2010. We had not lived in the city long, and were unsure of the programs available for our child. As an only child, she had spent the first few years of her life with her grandparents or us so it was important to have her socialize with other children her age. She felt comfortable enough to leave us the first day without hesitation. The experience was extraordinary for all of us. Both Mrs. Muniak and Ms. Ingrao are amazing teachers who have a definite passion for their profession. The program is well organized and prepares your child to be much more independent at "big" school. We were so impressed by this program and the dedication of everyone involved that we have recommended St. David's to several people in the community. Kudos to Mrs. Muniak and Ms. Ingrao...you are both the success of this program!!

Tyianne & Matthew Holmes – School year 2010/11

St. David's Nursery School is truly an amazing place for children. My Three year daughter has been attending for a year now, and looks foward to going to school every day. She enjoys being able to interact with the other children, and adores seeing her teachers. The school is very much a positive experience. My daughter has learned so much in such a short while. She never fails to tell us and to show us what she has learned. Thank you St. Davids.

Carol Nigh & Jason Hookey – School year 2010/11

As the parents of an only child, we tried to find ways for our daughter to spend time with other children. We had friends who had sent their children to St. David's Nursery Co-op and raved about how great the experience was for all three of them. I then spoke to several other people (both parents and previous students) who only had good things to say about St. David's. Tess did not want to go. Many times, before her first day, she told me that she did not want to go to school. That lasted for three days. Within two months she was asking to go five days a week instead of three. My only regret is that I didn't realize that they would have taken her last year.

Kevin and Karen Mans – School year 2010/11

St. David's Nursery School has been a second home for our two children over the last four years. Our eldest daughter is now in SK and her transition from St. David's to "big girl" school was seamless. Kloe is in her last year and is going to miss St. David's tremendously. The program provides an opportunity for kids and parents alike to experience "going to school". The teachers are wonderful, caring and enthusiastic and provide a wonderful opportunity for kids to feel comfortable being away from mom and dad for a few hours. We will miss you both Ms. Muniak and Ms. Ingrao!!

Julie Brocklebank – School year 2010/11

St David's has been an amazing experience for both my children, and that is ALL because of Ms Muniak and Ms Ingrao. Never having had my children in daycare, it was very daunting to leave them for the first time, but I immediately trusted them implicitly. They have taught my children so much, and graduating was very hard for my daughter because she LOVED her teachers. I imagine my son will feel the same. And it's hard on mommy too because I truly enjoyed bringing them here every week. I would have 15 more kids just to send them to St David's, but more specifically to be with Ms Ingrao and Ms Muniak.

Nicole Barden – School year 2010/11

I have been with St.David's for two years now. My oldest daughter attended last year and my youngest daughter is currently attending. I cannot say enough about this nursery school. My girls loved going and asked to go everyday, even on the weekends. They learn and do so much in only the few short hours that they attend. The teachers at St. Davids are wonderful!! They have been at the nursery school for many years and show such interest in the programming and their love for the children. I have been very happy in choosing St. David's nursery school for my daughters.

Darrin and Kelly Draper – School year 2010/11

St. David's Nursery School has proved to be a good decision for our little son Myles, who will be 3 in February. He has learned that it's ok to say bye to mom or dad for a little while and meet new people and learn new things. He has never not wanted to go to school and he always comes home happily worn out and stimulated. It has proved to be helpful also for me as a mom of a newborn baby, too. It gives me a little bit of a break from my toddler so I can rest with the baby or get something else done. We love getting all the special crafts that he comes home with and I love to hear him singing new songs that I've never heard before! I think that he is happier to play at home now too, because it's not his toys and playroom every second of the day. We will be sending him to the senior class next year, and our other son will hopefully go to St. Davids's day too. Myles' teacher, Mrs. Muniak, has been wonderful to him and it's obvious that she enjoys the kids and is very attentive to them. We think that St. David's will have a lasting effect on his socialization and his readiness to enter kindergarten!

Elaine Podilchuk – School year 2010/11

I am very excited to be the first person to write a testimonial about my experience with St. David’s Nursery School. I heard about St. David’s last spring through the people that run the Welland Early Years Program and enrolled my twins in the September 2010 session. My boys had never been cared for outside the home and I was very nervous to leave them in someone else’s care. I’m not sure who cried more on the first day, but my decision to enroll the children in St. David’s is the best decision I ever made. It has been incredible to watch my boys grow and progress, and I can honestly say that both my kids adore the teachers and look forward to “school” every morning. Mrs. Muniak is both kind and energetic, and takes the time to recognize each child’s strengths and weaknesses and works individually with him to help him learn. I highly recommend St. David’s Cooperative Nursery School to anyone considering pre-school! Thank you Mrs. Muniak and Mrs. Ingroa!
