Review submitted from a Website Submission by David L (Father of Child) on Tuesday 29 November 2016. Relates to November 2016.
My son loves coming to Mama Bear's in the morning. He especially likes the mud kitchen, and also likes learning the songs and the actions to go with them.
The staff are friendly and always full of happiness which seems to rub off on my son who usually wants to leave at the end of the day, but is always keen to come back next time.
