What can I say that will do this testimonial justice... The staff at Hamilton Community Pre-School are second to none. They are educated, well informed and have dedicated so much time to our children. They were never to busy for a chat or to provide some good old fashioned advice. The Pre-School is well stocked with so many learning activities and toys galore to keep everyone entertained. Our children have thrived on the care and love Hamilton Community Pre-School have provided. Thank you so much to all staff for making my little champs ready for school, it is a wonderful place for them to have spent their Pre-School years. M. West
