My daughter has been going to playful tots for a while now and she loves it. There is always lots to tell mummy about the adventures she has been on, or the things she has been playing with. I really like the well thought out separate playroom, its cosy, colourful and there is so much choice for free play. The garden is spacious with lots of activities. We also get lots sent home with our daughter, whether it is cakes, painting, sticking and gluing, my daughter is proud to being her latest master pieces home. I feel really comfortable leaving my child with playful tots, its a friendly caring and safe. Some of the reasons I think playful tots goes one step further, is things like taking my daughter to the shops, to buy the baking ingredients, to then do the backing and then bringing home the goodies. I like how my daughter can get the experience and understanding of money and that you need to go to the shops in order to get the things we need. On another occasion, preschool were celebrating Eid and my daughter wanted my to go, I could not, but I managed to pre arrange for playful tots to be there in my place, it is really good how the learning and fun with preschool and childcare can link up.

The honest truth, my daughter loves it, and gets excited when its her day to go. To me, that's the best recommendation a mum can ask for.

Elizabeth is a wonderful childminder. She childminded for my son Sammy who enjoyed being in her care and with her children. She provides a safe, warm and homely environment. Beth provides play activities that encourages learning through play. Her home is always welcoming and she is very friendly and caring. I would highly recommend her.
