Des & Debbie Forde (Parents)

Our son Sam started at Holy Family Pre-School for Children with Special Needs, Sligo when he was 2 years and 10 months, we have been very happy with the service they have provided for him every step of the way. As you can imagine letting Sam leave home (even, if only for a few hours a day) for the first time was a very anxious event in our lives, but during our initial visit to their facility, we were somewhat reassured that he would receive great care. The Staff are very well trained and many of them have been there for a long time, which is a good sign. They have an excellent policy of communicating how Sam gets on every day. The Manager and Staff with the aid of external Specialists holds regular progress meetings that offer helpful medical and parenting advice.

Our son adjusted very well from the beginning due mainly to the staff who were very supportive and patient. Sam has continued to do really well. His verbal communication skills have continued to expand. He has improved immensely with his ability to walk and his curiosity has also been challenged. Our ”gut” feeling to choose Holy Family was right. So far, we couldn’t be happier.
