What Our Parents Are Saying...
My son loves attending before-school club and is quite annoyed he does not have to go in the afternoons as well.
The activities are wide and varied, staff are very friendly and welcoming. The children are motivated with positive behaviour strategies like spot prizes. The breakfast provided is also varied with cereal, toast sometimes porridge etc.
The service is very flexible and I have been able to book an extra session very easily and quickly. communication is fast and very helpful including newsletters, Facebook page, and quick responses via emails.
My daughter has been attending Court Lane breakfast/after-school club and the holiday playscheme since she started school. The staff are brilliant with the children and really have encouraged my daughter who was quite shy to being with, to get involved with the many activities they do! And she has formed great friendships with both staff and children that I have trouble getting her to leave. They taught her how to skip, which is a work in progress, but shows the staff’s dedication and commitment to the children. The staff are really approachable, and will always listen to the parents & children. I couldn’t wish for a better setting for my daughter to attend.
I started using the Farlington Wraparound Service’s holiday club last summer after a recommendation from a friend. My Son was just finishing year R and I needed childcare that would cover my working hours, so the early start of 7:30 is just perfect for us. The location also suits us really well as we don’t live in the Farlington area but I work in Cosham and my husband in Havant so drop-off is really convenient!
Although only knowing one other child there at the beginning he has made friends and when he returns each holiday he is pleased to see them.
It is definitely value for money as all activities are included in the cost! They are never short of things to do and are out and about every day whatever the weather – so needs to pack his bags to cover all eventualities! Trips my son talks about include Staunton country park, Fort Nelson, cinema, and the end of last summer a trip to Wonderland in Bournemouth.
I can’t wait until my youngest can go there as well.
I have used the flaws on both sites and their holiday clubs and my boys love going. The service had developed over the year and I like the fact my 4-year-old has a key worker as he is one of the youngest to start school. The staff are friendly, approachable and welcome all the children with a smile.
Thanks for having Molly this summer she had a great time with you all. See you soon. There are many
Children had a great time in the summer club this year. They loved the staff and the managers were brilliant with them. They told me not to pick them up ’til late as poss because they liked it so much!! Please pass on my thanks. Jo
Great after school and breakfast club. Kids both enjoy their time at Wraparound. Staff are always polite and great with kids.
Thank you and your lovely staff for looking after my little ….. for 3 mornings for 2 years (and my … briefly). Although a little shy and quiet, she always felt welcomed there by the staff in the morning and had a particularly soft spot for Jo who I agree is lovely. I felt happy to leave her and was confident that she was safe and having fun in my absence. It’s a great setup for working parents like myself and is fairly priced. Should we need to return one day then we certainly will but at present the trialing of the Playscheme day, is to give myself a break.
Please let me send my thanks and appreciation for all the care and kindness that you and your staff have shown A… and I. It has made both of us feel very welcomed and has definitely made starting school easier
I’m thrilled that you did this and also amazed at how much Lena retained from the session. You must have made it really interesting as she loses focus really easily. She put me in the recovery position and did it absolutely perfectly.
Can I say millions of thanks for being such nice people to the kids?! Irene LOVES going to the holiday scheme and of course, I love seeing her that happy. She will soon be asking when she is going back there!
Thank you for looking after A….. after school for the last few years.
