Review submitted from a Postal Card by R L G (Mother of Child) on Thursday 14 January 2016. Relates to November 2015.
The care my daughter receives is exemplary. She couldn't be happier at the end of a day there. All the staff, without exception, are friendly, kind and trustworthy. The variety of activities offered makes my toddler very excited about attending, and most importantly, I have no reason to worry about her time spent there.
