Laura has had our daughter for 18 months, we have seen a vast improvement in not only her manners but behaviour and speech. Our daughter is excited to go everyday and is always happy on collection.
Laura is a friendly warm and kind hearted lady with an exceptional way with children. She always goes the extra with Xmas, Easter , Halloween etc pictures and cards.
Always goes above and beyond and is very flexible has always helped if anything crops up.
I feel our daughter learns as if in a school environment as Laura's playroom is full of fun and learning activities . Couldn't recommend enough!
