Kind Words

  • Sophie was at Barley Close and also went to Holiday Tots. She absolutely loves Mrs Nichols and misses her such a lot despite being settled at school. The quality of care and the provision that both Emma and Rich offer is fantastic. My child was happy, well rounded and confident due to the great start that they gave her.

  • 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.
