My son was looked after by Steph last year, he left in July to start his journey at preschool, he thoroughly enjoyed being with Steph and his time with all the children he was very sad when he left. Steph is very accommodating and is always happy, we still keep in contact and I still pick up and drop off my Friends daughter who also is thriving at Steph’s. she is always changing the toys and setting up little play areas each day for the children to enjoy and takes them out regularly whether it be too the library with other children of preschool age, the park or outings. I honestly couldn’t recommend Steph enough!!
