To entrust my precious children into *Your* hands was the best decision EVER. I want you Angie, Pami and staff to know how much I appreciate all you have done for Me and my babies! *You* have forever imprinted on their brains and they will be forever changed because of your love, teaching and guidance! We will miss seeing you all, but certain this is not the last time! All our love The Marriotts

Dear Angie, Pami and staff, it is with an extremely heavy heart that I write this letter. As discussed with you in October 2017, Charlie will be leaving Angie Pangie Pud n Pie.  She will be starting her new school on 17 January 2018. When Ash and I walked in there the first time, we fell in love immediately, as we could feel the warmth, home like environment and love at the school.  Thank you all for making us feel at ease during the early days. As parents it’s a terrible feeling leaving your 6-week baby with someone else. But you have patiently taken our concerned calls and assured us daily that she was doing just fine.  As first-time parents, your advice and guidance was invaluable and much appreciated. It’s hard to believe that the once tiny little girl now loves her teachers, comes home singing songs and even kisses and hugs everybody at the school before she leaves…she is growing up and into such a well-rounded little girl.  What more could a parent ask for, that is credit to all of you. We would just like to express our gratitude for accepting Charlie into your warm environment  and making us all a part of your extended family and to take this opportunity to thank you and all your staff for the care and support you have given Charlie during her 2½ years at Angie Pangie Pud n Pie. We are grateful to all of you for continuing to make nursery school a welcoming and enjoyable place for Charlie to be.  Angie Pangie Pud n Pie has given Charlie a happy healthy place to go to everyday and we are so thankful that you have filled her early years with so many happy memories. We humbly thank you and your team for making this transition such an easy and pleasant experience for both us and Charlie. We have and will continue to recommend Angie Pangie Pud n Pie to all our friends and colleagues. We will miss seeing you every day but will keep in touch and wish you every success for the future. Ash and Kim McBean 

We want to thank you, Pam and the team for all you have done for Soren over the last 3 years. You have done so much more than providing a school. You have looked after Soren as your own child and, importantly, as we would do. We can’t believe that almost 3 years have passed since we dropped off our 2-month-old precious bundle by compete strangers. It was heart wrenching then and now, 3 years later we are leaving with a similar sadness not because you are strangers but because you have become an important part of our daily lives. But it’s not all sad. We are thankful for your shaping of Soren. And his development to the bright, happy boy he is today is certainly because of the foundation you laid with him. He is well-prepared to take on the world! It’s an end of an era. But it’s not the end. We will make an effort to get together often (and if we don’t, please remind us). You have a great school and are providing a great foundation for the next generation. We are sure that you can only go from strength to strength. Have a joyful Christmas and a safe festive season. Thanks, and lots of Love from Soren, Nadia and Sean 

 

Every working mother knows the anxiety and anguish that comes with firstly finding the best; and secondly leaving your child at a day-care or crèche. This became my situation again near the end of 2016 after the birth of my little boy. As an Occupational Therapist who has worked at many schools, I am often privy to the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to schools and am therefore quite critical with what I consider to be a suitable school for my child. I came across Angie Pangie through social media, where they were recommended by many happy mothers, and I knew I had to pay them a visit. Every interaction from the first moment was positive. This little haven run by mom and daughter duo along with very caring assistants is quite simply the most nurturing and safe environment for little people. Its homely, family-feel and friendly atmosphere made it the perfect choice for us. Small touches make you realise that this isn’t just a job for these wonderful ladies, they truly love and care for each of these children.  Pami, the daughter part of the duo was not happy with the schools she found herself working in after completing her training and therefore created a school she felt comfortable to work in and call her own, and it shows. Lots of thought and effort has gone into providing a holistic approach to the children’s development. Children and babies learn best through play and exploration of their sensory environments, and this is definitely catered for at Angie Pangie. Their learning areas as well as outside garden and playground is well designed allowing for exploration and fun. What’s often lacking in larger schools and day cares is the individual attention, as there are just not enough hands to go around; however, this is not the case at Angie Pangie. Each child is unique and what I love most about Angie Pangie is that your child is not just a number; your preferences and needs are taken into account and accommodated, putting the anxious mommy’s mind at ease. Most importantly as a mother however, what makes the most difference to me is my child’s happiness and how he settles. My son loves Angie Pangie. He is always happy, and I attribute this to the individual attention and love he gets from the loving staff. When your child starts at Angie Pangie, they really do become part of the family.  I can highly recommend this wonderful little school.   Lisa de Vaux Occupational Therapist

Saying goodbye is always hard. . . Thanks for the lovely review “Our daughter has been at Angie Pangie Pud ‘n Pie since she was nearly 4 months old, and being a slightly premature baby, I was looking for a gentle and nurturing environment that I could trust. From the very beginning, Angie, Pammie and their staff have been more than just staff at the crèche – they have been like family to us and have not only gone out of their way to provide the best care for our daughter, but also to me as a mother. They have helped to guide us in many ways and have respected all of our preferences with regards to the way in which we have chosen to bring up our daughter – be it dietary choices or routine choices! Your child is not just a number at Angie Pangie – they are given individual attention for their specific needs – whether it’s a developmental issue or just that the child needs a little bit of extra love and care. Each child is treated uniquely and as if he / she were their own. Our daughter has learnt so much and has really blossomed into a happy and more confident child. Angie Pangie provides a safe and homely environment for babies and children, and they are always there to support you in your parenting journey! Its more than just a crèche – it’s like a second home where they teach from the heart and not only from the book!” Marion mom and physiotherapist
