My children (1-3) really enjoyed going to Sara's house. It was hard to my youngest to settle but Sara and all her kindest and professionalism makes her feel comfortable and happy and safe. I was at peace when leaving my kids , they have learned a lot, as each term there is a new topic. She a really nice person. Thank you for looking after them, they will miss you.

My children (ages 1 and 3) have been with Sara for a few months now and love it. I would highly recommend Sara as her programmes are well structured and varied making sure the children are learning at the same time as playing and having fun! She has different themes each week and they often go out to the playground and have other fun activities. The menu is also very good and all homemade!

Our two boys have been going to Sara for two months now. Sara has been brilliant at helping them to settle in. One of my boys has a severe egg allergy and Sara has gone above and beyond to accommodate his needs and keep him safe which has been a huge comfort to me as well. Lovely warm, cosy place set up very thoughtfully so there is lots to do. I can thoroughly recommend. I have two very happy little boys.
