    5 Benefits of Sharing A Family Meal

    June 1, 2022

    With everyone juggling such busy schedules, sharing a family meal can seem like a rare luxury these days.

    How to Teach Your Child about Charity

    April 7, 2022

    Supporting charities is a great way to help those less fortunate than ourselves. With so many valuable skills to develop (like generosity, selflessness and gratitude), partaking in charity work can be a great learning experience for the whole family. But what about your young children?
    If you‘re wondering how to teach your child about charity, here are 5 fun ideas to spark their interest:

A Special Journey

As parents, we understand how important it is to choose the right day-care provider for your child. We know how hard the decision is to leave your child for the first time and, for some, how difficult the return to work can be.

Testimonials

  • "Alfie has attended the crèche since he was 10 months old, I can honestly say he has enjoyed every day. From the baby room, to the toddler room he is now in, he has clearly been well looked after. All staff we have dealt with are child focused, attentive and friendly and clearly work hard with the children, as Alfie has come home singing many new songs (always with a dance to go with it!!), nursery rhymes, numbers, letters, colours and much more. Parents evenings have been informative and give a good insight into what the children get up to every day. Foodwise, the crèche have been accommodating with food allergies, and the variety and quality of food the children experience is excellent. Alfie has experienced many different foods, and whilst he hasn’t liked them all, we consider it a great way for trying out new tastes and flavours. Alfie goes in smiling and comes home smiling, as parents we couldn’t ask for more." – Sally Abel (NPT)

Couldn't recommend enough."
