My little boy started at Littleleaps in January, before this he had never been under anyone else’s care but mine (lockdown baby). After only 2 settling in sessions he absolutely loves it. The team that look after him are amazing and I felt 100% comfortable in their abilities to look after my little one just as well as I do. His confidence has grown so much in such a short space of time. The daycare itself is a lovely setting, extremely clean, cosy and a homely feel, perfect setting for little ones. I’m so glad we found Littleleaps, highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a warm, safe and caring environment for their child.

Thank you so much. ❤️

I urgently needed immediate child care to accommodate my working hours and despite contacting numerous minders oh here, noone could help or didn't bother getting back to me, lou got straight back to me and was massively accommodating providing childcare the next day, my daughter was very nervous after the lock downs and lack of interaction and social skills with other children etc, lou has made maddie so welcome and comforted providing fab activities each day in a truly wonderful setting, my daughter has already made friends and greets me at the door when I pick her up with a massive smile and a double thumbs up through the window! Fab setting with a multitude of activities, fab people and a fab service, cannot recommend enough!

Thank you so much.

So happy with “LouLou” at Little Leaps!!! My daughter struggled each day leaving me but Lou has done everything she can to help her settle and it’s definitely worked!! Having started a new job ; just knowing my daughter is happy and safe really eases the pressure!! Her progress with working towards starting school has just come on leaps and bounds and I’m updated regularly with a book bag full of practice writing ect. Lou is always happy and positive when I’m dropping off and collecting and I always leave with a smile. Not only has she been amazing with my daughter but I feel like I’ve made a friend too!

The whole family has a positive happy energy!

So pleased that my son is now starting with Lou as of next term! Thanks so much little leaps for all your help and support !
