"It's usually very good although in the recent months of pandemic I felt services were not amazing like usual. Shortage of staff, app not updated, so some days I am not sure if my son had eaten unless I ask. Staff that we made bonds with leaving one after another in short space of time, which makes parent worry what's the reasons behind it and if the level of care will be the same with all the changes. I feel that my child is in a good care but not excellent."
