What our parents say........

 

"I'd like to thank the Crèche team for all your help looking after my Daughter Isabelle over the last 4 years and son Jack in recent months. I've left them in your capable hands several times over the last few years- starting when he they were just three months old- so I could get back in shape after giving birth. Thanks to all the team Julie, Jan, Kellie and Simonne. it’s great to have flexible childcare like this!"
-Sarah, mother to Isabelle age 5years and Jack, age 2years.

 

“The staff at the crèche are so lovely and professional. Thomas was very quick to settle there and it makes me really happy to see him smiling when we arrive. It is a safe and caring environment and I feel very comfortable leaving Thomas whilst I use the gym.”

-Sian, Mother to Thomas age 1 years.

 

“Both of my children love coming to the crèche. My 11 year old still wants to come to visit as the staff are like his aunties. My 1 year old also can’t wait to get in the door. It’s a great intro for little ones to learn how to socialise and play with other children before they start Nursery. The staff are wonderful and treat every child as their own.

-Michelle, mother 22 month old.
