«To me, as a mother, it is a great happiness to realize that the child loves everything - from toys to food! And it fills me with a sense of peace and confidence that here, the most comfortable conditions of education are offered to the children.»
We have been taking our son to ENS "Dobrynya" for about a year now. And during this time, I see that our child is happy to go to the nursery. The night before, he usually asks if we will go there tomorrow :)An additional bonus and a charming moment was our son starting to use some English words in Russian phrases at home, in communication, by the end of autumn. However, initially, I bought into the atmosphere of kindness, warmth, understanding, and a particular mentality at the nursery, not to mention a foreign language! Also, our friends noticed that our son has a lovely pronunciation of English words. This is so cool!! :) At first, I was not too comfortable about lengthy adaptation. We started attending the nursery in April last year and had to take son home before playtime, then before lunch, then after lunch... But in the end, it did not matter when we saw everything falling into place at the beginning of the school year, when, after the summer our son went to the nursery quite consciously, and we did not have to worry about an adaptation peroid again. I love our nursery and would like to go there myself!!! :)
«We have never had any doubts about our choice. I am sure that I give my child a good educational foundation.»
Adam started going to the ENS when he was 4. The critical factor in choosing a nursery, and later a school, was the fact that the leading teachers at the ENS are not just native English speakers but are qualified, experienced professionals with higher pedagogical education received in the UK. We were also attracted by the comfortable, stimulating, educational environment.At the moment, Adam is studying in the 3rd grade in the British program and in the first grade of the Russian school; two educational programs within the walls a single educational institution. So convenient! I am pleased with Adam’s academic performance: he reads, writes, and speaks two languages. On our trips abroad, he communicates in English quickly and naturally, fully expresses himself, finding a common language with children and adults.When one of his peers was trying to start a conflict on the street (I saw this once), Adam behaves like a real gentleman and reacts according to the "Golden rules," established in the school. He says: "No, thank you" or "I don't like it" and walks away, i.e., does not let the conflict develop. And it works! The offender freezes in shock, and the fight is over. The school provides the academic knowledge and instills good manners in children and develops the etiquette of communication with peers and adults. There are, however, some nuances: he had several questions about his grandmother's cooking! He says that porridge and soups taste better at school:)At first, I was confused by the high cost of education, but found it justified when I realized that I give the best to my son! There were no doubts about the correctness of our choice. I am sure that I have given my child a decent educational foundation. The only thing that makes you think –a further educational strategy, is finding the right high school, which will support two educational programs. Is there such a thing in Moscow? In the future, I would like him to continue to study the main academic disciplines in English, but not at the expense of education in the native language.
Dear ENS, thank you for the excellent preparation!
In 2018, Amalia finished Year 3 at ENS Onegino. We decided to move to Spain for a while. She has started the new school year in a Spanish international school, which is among the top ten schools in Spain. After a month of study, we realized that we need to change school for several reasons, not because of the level of Spanish. We selected Kensington School - a traditional British school, which was founded in Barcelona in 1966. As it was October, we were quite worried about the interview, and if Amalia could quickly adapt to the new school and join the learning process in the case we received a favorable decision regarding admission. We took a report from ENS Onegino with Amalia's yearly results to the interview. Amalia was very confident during the conversation with the school Administrator, who was responsible for the admission of children. According to the Administrator, there were no obstacles to Amalia's admission to the school. Usually, children get only accepted after a rigorous test but this wasconsidered unnessesary in our case by the school Administrator due to the British scholling that Amalia had already recived at ENS. We were, therefore, invited to talk with the director of the school. Mr. Michael Bayes, Director of Kensington School, invited us to his office. He had a report from ENS Onegino laying on his table. Following a half-hour conversation, the director suggested that Amalia came to school the next day.It’s been almost three months since Amalia started studying at the Kensington School and she is confident and relaxed. And Miss Nock, her teacher, considers Amalia one of the best students! She is perfectly adapted and feels the environment is totally familiar, for example, with the lesson schedule and way of teaching. I would like to thank everyone at ENS Onegino for such excellent preparation!
Our son has been attending nursery since 2014. During this time, he learned to speak English correctly, made a lot of friends, and became more sociable. Our son runs to the nursery with great pleasure, loves the teachers, and seeks to new learning experiences. We are delighted that a few years ago we made our choice in favor of ENS. Danya 4.5 year.

It great to know that the nutrition of my child is in the hands of Svetlana because food is one of the key criteria for the health and development of children.
I love her detailed approach to the nutrition of the children. She carefully selects suppliers of products. Meat, eggs, and water are given for examination, vegetables and fruits are checked for the content of harmful substances with the help of various devices. They create new food options for those with allergies and for those who care for the health of their children. Alina loves eating at school, as it is always delicious. She even asks me to cook at home the way they cook at school. The children's menu is prepared in adanvce and sent to parents every week. Thank you for your work!
My daughter is in love with English Nursery School! During the holidays, she literally counts the days before the classes.
Skipping nursery and not going there is never an option. She is ready to talk about ENS anywhere and everywhere. When Lisa talks about her day, I understand that I could never teach and do as much as teachers do for her. She paints, sculpts, sings songs, knows how to dig up worms, plant beans, how to bake buns, make beads from pasta and much, much more. Not to mention brushing her teeth, dressing, washing, and using a knife and fork. She knows all the staff by name and loves everyone. They are significant people for her. If Lisa hurts her finger and I'm not doing anything, she tells me what Miss Anna does in a situation like this. When she writes and paints, she dedicates her work to Miss Susan, Miss Nancy, or Miss Kate. Miss Carol or Miss Becky are the most beautiful. Lisa is waiting for Miss Sabine or Miss Lisa to "take her to play" – they are the psychologist and the speech therapist! And if the doctor said to rinse her throat, we'll do it. Miss Natasha and Miss Svetlana are very kind. And she can go on like this for the whole day, which, in fact, she does!When communicating with Lisa, I realize that it is at ENS where she was taught to love life, be kind and understanding to everyone. It is absolutely amazing that there are so many excellent and bright people gathered in one place.My child has a very happy childhood.
The rich program, celebrations, education, and most importantly - a great attitude towards children has created a pleasant atmosphere of a real second home for our child.
It was our first year at ENS. It was a challenging yet exciting and informative year! We are thrilled to have chosen this nursery for our son! The rich program, holidays, education, and most importantly, a great attitude to children have created an atmosphere of a second home for our child. Special thanks to Ms. Karen, Ms. Ashley, Mr. Aaron, for their help and care, they helped through this year-long journey. They are real teachers, always optimistic, positive, and systematic at the same time. Looking forward to our next year at ENS!
Svetlana, Nikita's mother
I can say that ENS is the best thing I have done for Nikita in his 5 years!
Dear Svetlana Viktorovna, Miss Karen, Mr. Iron! I can say that ENS is the best thing I have done for Nikita in his 5 years! Great respect and love to each of you! The whole ENS team makes children happier!!! Thank you! See you on September 1!
We are pleased that Roma attended ENS this year, he has changed a lot, and become more independent as well as acquiring excellent, self-care skills!
Many thanks to all the staff of ENS for their work, for creating a fantastic, friendly atmosphere, an atmosphere of cooperation. Special thanks to Svetlana Viktorovna for the excellent organization of all events and holidays; Miss Karen - for the responsiveness and friendliness, for the fact that she was always there and helped to solve absolutely all issues; Mr. Aaron - for the cheerful dynamism that he created in the group; Miss Ashley - for the fact that she taught Roma everything. We visited our nursery with great pleasure, and my mother too!
I want to express my gratitude for the warm, homely atmosphere in the school, friendly staff who are emotionally resistant to parental stress and worries!
During the first week of our stay in ENS, we watched the organisation of the educational process, and were convinced that everything worked perfectly! Thanks to the psychologist, who daily assuredus that the adaptation is going well (could be worse) and that soon our child will get used to things. Every time I approached her, she would first comfort my child and then myself! The administrator is the smile of the school! Miss Emma has found an approach to a child (a separate thank you!), and miss Olesya is a very nurtering, attentive assistant! There is a great strategy on nutrition. We were concerned that our child would not eat anything at all. They gave us the recipes to make something similar and thereby reduced our child’s stress with new food! Thank you for Valentine's Day, there was a real sense of celebration at the entrance! Everyone was incredibly beautiful, and most importantly (it was apparent) enjoyed themselves! Before the interview here, we visited another school, but the atmosphere here..... The child chose you! Thank you!
My daughter has been studying in the ESL group for precisely 2 years, she loves it!
