  • I cannot recommend first friends highly enough. My son spent 18 very happy months there & developed so much during that time. Emma and Rich are great influences and incredible role models for small children. The atmosphere is relaxed, staff so caring and the outside space first friends has is perfect for small boys!

  • We would like to thank you and all your staff for all the hard work you put into looking after our children. We know they would always be well looked after and would always have a fun day. Sam especially liked holiday tots when Rich was on duty.

  • Just wanted to say thank-you to Emma, Rich & all at Holiday Tots. You know its good when your child cries when its time to leave!! We travelled from Southville but it was always worth it. Keira ALWAYS had such a good time. I am forever grateful.
