Kind Words

  • 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.

  • I have known Emma and Rich for a number of years now, both my children went to Barley Close and Holiday Tots. I have always been impressed with the care provided, they always had a strong team and the kids have always enjoyed themselves. Both boys will always have fond memories of their time there and Emma & Rich are genuine and caring people.

  • 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.
