Catch the Comment – other comments received

Here are some of the Catch the Comments we have received by parents over the last 3 months (July to September) regarding the daycare/groups/events we run at our Children’s Centres.

A really lovely class with lots of interaction for all ages. (Miss Molly’s Stories at Northowram and Shelf Hub)

The help this course has given me is absolutely fantastic, the changes outsiders and professionals have seen in me during the duration of the course is positive. Definitely best decision coming here. (Strengthening Families Strengthening Communities)

Very happy with how the staff are with my child when I bring him and he gets upset. Very happy with his behaviour and how happy he is because of how welcoming the staff are. (Ash Green daycare) Ash Green Children’s Centre

I just want to say a great big thank you to all the staff at Creations, I feel very lucky that my son was able to attend such a great nursery. The love and care and consideration you have shown him is second to none and invaluable to him as well as being comforting to me. Many thanks again.

I would just like to say how fantastic sports day was – very well organised and lots of fun and different things for the kiddies to do. I was pleased with the notice I was given about it because then I had chance to leave work early and watch my child’s very first sports day. I think the staff did fantastic to keep all the children occupied and it was also nice to be able to sit with the children afterwards. (Innovations daycare) Innovations Children’s Centre

Since my child has started nursery his confidence has boosted he wakes up everyday wanting to go to nursery. It’s helped him tremendously with his speech, playing, communication and role play. (Kevin Pearce daycare) Kevin Pearce Children’s Centre

My Grandson and I really enjoy the Thursday Chat and Play session. Everyone is made extremely welcome. The snack provided is nutritious and all the children enjoy it. Each week there is a different activity, it has helped our Grandson to share and get involved in group sessions. (Chat and Play at Northowram Hub)

Regular attendant with my baby and four year old to Tiny Treasures and Messy Monkeys – the sessions that I have attended with leaders from other groups have been fantastic – Baby Massage, Boom Chicka Boom – fantastic value for £1.50 a session. Love Tuesday afternoon and Thursday afternoon. (Tiny Treasures at Holywell Green)

From the moment I brought my granddaughter to Elland Children’s Centre they have made it very easy for her to attend and settle in. Staff have also been very flexible with the hours she attends to suit me. Staff are so welcoming, so giving and so helpful. For the very short time we have been here I can’t praise them enough. I would advise anyone to attend Elland. (Elland daycare) Elland Children’s Centre

We have been attending the sessions for a few years now. The sessions are really well run. Lots of different activities for the children and the chance to pick things your own child likes. The sessions are very warm and welcoming, Kelly is lovely with all the children and adults. My two children have loved coming to Messy Monkeys and had the opportunity to do fun things every week. They enjoy the singing and enjoy Kelly’s own versions of songs! (Messy Monkeys at Field Lane CC) Field Lane Children’s Centre

We have really enjoyed coming to the baby group. There is always a variety of fun activities for the babies to do. Even from a very young age my child enjoyed herself. We have been coming to baby group since she was 2 weeks old. (Baby Group at Wellholme) Wellholme Children’s Centre
