I can’t begin to tell how amazing Joy is. My 2 nearly 3 year old has come on leaps since going to Joys. He’s always happy to go and is always in a good mood when we pick him. Hes so much better at interacting with other children now which is lovely to see instead of him mostly playing by himself. My 6 year old also goes before and after school she’s so excited to go she wants to go everyday 😂😂

Thank you so much for the review. It’s all part of my job 🤗

My little boy went to Joy from being 7 months old and stayed up until him going to full time school. He loved going and Joy was great with him through the years really helping with educational development. It felt like a little family with a few of the other kids. Joy really cares for the kids and that’s why they love her. We still have to go round every now and again to say hello and catch up. I would highly recommend
