Ap4me (Shakira) Does the school pick ups for my son Monday to Friday.

My son is always boasting about all the fun thinks they do each week and how good her food is as he would say it was “banging”.

Not only is she very much experienced with kids of all ages but she also has a great deal of knowledge with where and what my son should be doing academically, as she is also a qualified teacher.

I honestly can’t flaw her Both me and my son are very much happy with her great service.

Much appreciated Shakira. 🙂
