Each year we ask our parents and staff for feedback. We have listed below some comments received for this scheme.

He loves being out and about keeping busy. He benefitted massively. It gives him things to do and get out and about. (Parent)
Excellent respite for myself as the holidays are particularly difficult. (Parent)
It gives me chance to do things with my other children that we can’t normally do. (Parent)

 Many thanks for all the lovely staff for keeping her happy and safe. Many thanks and appreciate you all. (Parent)
We have loved that he has enjoyed this experience. Although he is always reluctant to tell us about his day I know he’s enjoyed this so much and learned lots from it. (Parent)

The children all had a brilliant time, with people who really cared for them. (Staff)
All activities worked well, something different for each day. (Staff)
