Great arty party

Alex did a great job of making phoebe's party really special. She was very patient and engaging with the children, and the quality of the arts and crafts materials and equipment was great. We had lots of positive feedback from kids and parents. It was clear that Alex really cared about making sure phoebe and her friends had a lovely time. Thank you!

Clever ideas and very much looked forward to. Jen is always really well organised and makes sure that every child can fully participate in the activities, supporting when extra help is needed. She is kind and considerate and works with each child in a way that expertly recognises their individual personalities and needs.
