"The staff are great but the company doesn't seem to be supporting them enough, they could do with more staffing, more equipment and toys. As there is now a centre director again hopefully things will be improve."

"The staff are incredible and have been and are still working through some incredibly tough times. I'm so pleased they all stay to look after my children and plough on despite their ridiculous workload because I'd be lost without them. They deserve so much more than they actually get!"
