"I feel so at ease when my son goes away with Miss D’Silva - she is like a member of my family; I trust her totally"
Parent since 2010
"Miss D’Silva is an inspiration to our children and ourselves for the wonderful opportunities she has given our son and the amazing activities that she keeps finding to help our son Bradley to develop his social/emotional and life-skills. Bradley has enjoyed every minute of forest farm including outdoor cooking, feeding the lambs and collecting the eggs as well as making hot chocolate whilst socialising"
Parent since 2011
"Olly is fair, kind and positive and I trust his judgement impeccably. He understands my son so well and is always mindful of him as a person. I feel he sees the boy and not the behaviours, which even as his mum is incredibly difficult some days! Mentally, I have added him to the list of people I will thank at Myles graduation ceremony!"
