My child has access to a wide range of activities appropriate to his age which he enjoys and benefits from taking part in. He is able to play on his own too, which he often likes to do. He knows he can join in or not if he wishes to. He also tries other activities that are above his age range which I think is equally as beneficial and I'm happy that he is not restricted to explore and learn.
I couldn't rate the holiday clubs highly enough. Staff are always friendly and welcoming and always happy to talk through any concerns you may have. The children are well looked after and always come home with lots of stories from their day. The daily themes make the play scheme interesting for the children and they go out of their way to ensure the children have fun! They are always coming home with crafts and baking. I appreciate the hours that the play scheme runs as it allows me to go to work and not worry about my childcare. I think the yearly summer trip is amazing and very well organised. The whole play scheme is well organised, friendly and welcoming and I wouldn't send my children anywhere else.
I feel very confident it is a secure and safe place for my children.
Always welcoming to my children. They both absolutely love the playscheme and I feel confident leaving my children with no worries.
The children feel safe and have lots of fun. My daughter is very happy attending as she is looked after so well.I always know the children are cared for, they are safe and secure with well- trained, kind, enthusiastic staff.  The facilities are fabulous and creative.
The holiday club's are particularly so well organised and have such an array of activities and themes. Even the breakfast and after school club provide great activities and play options and experience for my child.
Resources and varied, creative, educational as well as fun and the activities are well organised with careful planning
Staff provide stimulating activities and varied activities enabling my daughter to choose, which she loves and they plan for the child's interests
My child always comes home telling me what a great time she has had. The options available for breakfast and after-school club snacks are great and a wide variety, so I no longer have to worry if he is eating.He always enjoys the activities provided and he's made lots of friends there even from other groups.
My daughter and all her friends have been cared for and individual needs supported- impressive, effective and caring support is always given in our experience.
Marie and staff are always available to discuss any concerns or changes in my son's needs and they continue to accommodate him as he grows.
I can't suggest anything Marie and the team could do to improve their service. I was so happy that we got our first school choice, not just for the school itself but for the great things I'd heard about the childcare provided onsite.It hasn't disappointed me yet and I'm sure it never will. My child is very happy to attend all sessions. I never struggle to get him out of bed for the breakfast club!
I think you have managed so well throughout all the building work. Thank you so much for everything you do x
Marie is extremely professional and the staff are amazing role models in my children's eyes
Very nurturing environment
