“We cannot thank Sabine enough for the solid, sage advice and counseling she has provided us. She was referred to us by a friend when I was 6 months pregnant with our first child in 2014. As expats, we were completely unsure of how to decipher and navigate the English school system, and having heard horror stories from friends in other “competitive” cities like LA and New York, we were very concerned about making any missteps or missing any deadlines. Sabine patiently walked us through the different types of English schools, all the way up to university, so that we understood what we were working with, and explained what required nearer-term application and what would wait. She then carefully listened to our preferences, and compiled a workable list from us to choose schools for nursery and Reception applications.
But most of all, Sabine put our minds at ease, and held my heavily-pregnant hand to whittle down my options, fill out applications, and get everything ready to go before birth. She was even able to squeeze in a nursery visit 6 weeks before I delivered! She also handled compiling and mailing all the applications for us so that we could concentrate on being brand new parents.
Sabine later served as an amazing sounding board, happily answering questions about the various school options, and guiding me as to when and how to approach the nurseries regarding tours and waiting lists. The nursery where I had my pre-birth visit was by far our top choice, and when we had to make our final decision and put down a deposit, Sabine helped me confirm my instinct that this school was indeed the one for us. Most importantly, since starting in April, our son has absolutely adored this nursery, and we have been thrilled with the caring and ever-cheerful staff, excellent curriculum, and lovely parents’ community. Our younger child will be attending the school as well next year. We could not be happier there, and we owe it all to Sabine!
I know that I can trust Sabine’s judgment and advise 110%, and when the time comes for Reception, I am sure she will once again have incredible insight and guidance as to our options. We are so, so grateful to Sabine, and words cannot adequately express how much we recommend her!!!!”
