They've taken special notice of our daughter's strengths and have helped to foster her creative and imaginative nature. They understand that pressure causes her to shut down and that she needs regular positive reinforcement in order to feel confident enough to believe she can do the thing she thought she couldn't.Nikki McMahon

In the 4 months that Liam has been at FootPrints he is talking quite a bit more, he is pronouncing his words better and he is now kicking a ball. His personality is really blooming. Liam is even starting to use a computer and a tablet.Tina
Both my children's emotional and academic needs are supported, their confidence levels have soared and they continue to learn valuable life skills. They are thriving within this very nurturing and loving environment. What more could I ask for as a parent?Anne Lynch
We have been part of the Footprints family since 2020 and we adore the school. We love the passion, enthusiasm and positivity that each and every teacher and assistant shows towards the children. Every child is recognised and they ensure that all are involved in every activity at school. We have seen profound growth in our son’s social and academic skills. And we appreciate the fact they know his strengths and weaknesses and encourages him to venture out into unknown territory. Our journey with Footprints will come to an end in 2024 but we will forever carry with us the contributions they have made to our lives.Antoinette Smith

atmosphere and the strong sense of belonging have been instrumental in her overall
development and well-being.

school's dedication to providing a comprehensive and holistic education has allowed
her to overcome challenges, embrace her strengths, and develop a sense of selfconfidence that is truly inspiring to witness.
As Anjé's advocate, I wholeheartedly endorse Footprints for their exceptional efforts
in creating a safe, nurturing, and enriching environment for students with special
needs. The school's commitment to individualized learning, combined with their
genuine care for the well-being of each student, sets them apart as a beacon of
excellence in the field of special education.
I want to express my deepest gratitude to the entire Footprints community for their
unwavering support, dedication, and belief in Anjé's potential. I have no doubt that
the positive impact will continue to resonate in her life for years to come
