What our parents and kids say

25 Sept 2012

Hi Carlo,

I think you have run the best SKIDS so far. Your staff are more “interested” in the kids and I like the more structured afternoon activities.

Plus the Holiday Programme is the best. We usually go to another well-known provider but this time 90% of the Holiday Programme will be spent with you.

So…don’t change anything!

Hi Carlo,

WOW! I am so impressed with the programme you guys have put together. Well done. It’s great to see such a lot of thought and enthusiasm put into a holiday programme.

Hi Carlo,

Apologies for the mix-up yesterday and thanks so much for contacting me in Mitchell’s absence – It is reassuring to know you have good checks on who is expected, and are very swift to contact parents..

Hi Carlo,

Thanks for looking after Tim throughout the year, he has had such a wonderful experience in Skids and enjoyed every minute when he was there.

Thanks and best regards,

Hi Carlo,

Thanks for that.  I will probably still be working full time early nextyear, so will need care for Tessa after school again in term one.  I’ll leave it for that.  Thanks,

P.S  Thanks for doing such a good job of looking after the kids!!!!  Andfor being a great communicator to the parents!

Hi Carlo,

Thank you very much for all you do at SKIDS and for making Liam so happy and safe there.  At the beginning of the week he actually wanted to go to SKIDS rather than come home early!  But as the week has gone on and he is more tired he prefers that I collect him at 3pm. To me this was a fantastic indicator of how comfortable and content Liam is with going to SKIDS after school every day – Congratulations on running such a great business.

Over the weekend I will sort out some dates for booking Liam into your summer programme for January 2015.

We wish you and your family a very happy Christmas and best wishes for the New Year – lets hope it brings good health and happiness to all.

Kind regards
