Sam was recommended to us for our 8 year old daughter who wasn't enjoying the out of hours care at her new school. We arranged to visit Sam at her home, and my daughter was very nervous and worried about it, but as soon as we arrived she brightened up and her worries disappeared! Sam and all her family are lovely, welcoming people and make you feel at ease right away. Having only ever experienced large nurseries it was new for both my daughter and me, but after chatting with Sam and talking things through I was completely happy to go ahead and book the space-and it was the best decision I have made since moving here! My daughter LOVES to go to Sam's and always enjoys herself, and I am thrilled that I can be confident and have absolutely no doubts that she is being cared for brilliantly. It will be a sad day when she doesn't need Sam anymore!
