Kind Words

  • I have known Emma for a couple of years, my son attended Barley Close Nursery and also he attended Holiday Tots in the school holidays. It is evident when you pick up a happy smiley little boy at the end of the day that he has enjoyed himself and has been well looked after, which is what every parent wants! Good luck with your plans I know you will both make it a great success!

I wish you every success. ...more

The temporary play area looks so bright and stimulating with so much space to explore both indoors and outside.
