OUR TESTIMONIALS

What our parents and kids say

“Graham had a sensational time at the Christmas/ New Year holiday programme! He was both challenged and nurtured. I would not hesitate to enrol him again. sKids, you rock! Thank you for looking after my son and putting a huge smile on his wee face.

And today…

I was banished back to my classroom when I went to pick Graham up. He wanted to stay and have his face painted. Half an hour later, his face was a picture. He was beaming behind a very realistic Spiderman. I should mention that he has NEVER EVER wanted to have his face painted before. I wish I had a camera to capture my face when he snuck up on me.

Thanks again from your biggest fans.”

From Natlalie Baker-Lim and Graham
Teacher of Room 6 Cherubs

“My kids have been attending sKids for about a year now. Overall, I’m highly impressed by the quality of the service. I feel secure in the knowlege that my children are being cared for in a warm, safe and stimulating environment. The staff have gone the extra mile in building a loving and nurturing relationship with my children and have consistently worked together with me to mee their needs. I highly recommend sKids to any parents out there wishing to put their children in a fun-packed after-school and school-holiday programme.

Thanks”
