My son loves SKiDs. He normally goes just in the afternoon but often he will ask to go in the morning! LOL. He leaves SKiDs around 4 pm, and has a long drive home, the staff always make sure he has a snack before, or to take with him which is lovely Very pleased with SKiDs Carlton.

Booking system is good to use, and we always get prompt confirmation of booking which is appreciated, as sometimes we have to book in a morning at short notice.

Thanks SKiDs

Everything is made very easy for working parents

The staff, environment and programmes are exceptional!

Hi Sonia..I would like to say that my daughter loves skids, and I am really happy with the staff you have at Mosston, they are fantastic with kids and adults. Great work!….I have recommended skids to everyone I know looking for after school and a great holiday programme.

Have a lovely weekend
