I want to take this opportunity to THANK Jack In The Box for my daughter P's improvement in communication and social skills in the last year.
Thank you to all the teachers who helped P.
I especially want to mention Maddy, Amnna, Rachel and Shahida.
All the staff in the Pre-School room did excellent work with P - Carly, Sepidah, Emma along with Rachel and Shahida . She is fond of all of them.
Maddy- she helped P to adjust in the Piglet room when P was struggling ....she started liking going to nursery. Maddy did an excellent job in calming P during crisis.
Amnna - helped P to adjust in the Pre-School room seamlessly. The first name that P said was Amnna ....P started drinking milk in school and started to stay for a longer period. P loved Amnna and when asked about her friend it's always Amnna. Amnna taught her how to behave with friends and not get angry.
Rachel - helped P in forming sentences, eating yoghurt, staying in nursery from 9am. She also attended sessions with me for Speech and Language. Taught her good habits of putting rubbish in the bin, saying please, excuse me etc. There was a huge improvement in her communication.
Shahida was her secondary key person and came up with the idea of the communication book so that P can talk about what happened in nursery, at home.
Lee, Richard and Joanna - thank you for addressing my concerns and talking to me, so that I am comfortable.
I am very happy with the overall support of Jack In The Box and will always be grateful for you helping P.
