As a parent with an autistic child I was very nervous sending him to nursery, but DNS made me feel welcome and comforted that my boy would be happy and develop into the best boy ever. He has made so much progress we are overwhelmed with the support and love he has been given. He has had the best first year with so much appreciation to the team to help my boy flourish and blossom into who he really is. Thank you so very much!”
