"Level of care given to my daughter is brilliant, resources and activities the kids are encouraged to do is great and the support recently with potty training in class is amazing. Joanna has been a breath of fresh air added to the team and room and has been incredibly helpful and warm towards both my daughter and her education. Thank you, Kirsty Boyle "
