"The Kangaroo Club have provided excellent care for my three children over the last six years. The staff are kind, caring and well liked by my children, and I have always found them to be polite and friendly to parents. Very acommodating with specific or changing needs such as dietary requirements, helping with potty training nap times, out of school care ect. Children do lots of fun activities and group time that they couldn't do at home and for all these reasons I feel confident leaving them in the Kangaroo Clubs care when I go to work."

- Jane Heuston

"Our son is happy, comfortable and flourishing at the Kangaroo club. We couldn't ask for a better nursery for our little boy: staff provide exceptional, personalised care and are always on hand to discuss his progress and needs. He runs in every morning and doesn't want to leave in the evening!"

- Lisa and Chris Capstick

"Having two children who attend three times a week I can honestly say that the staff all go above and beyond to make the rooms, warm, welcome and inviting and each day fun and educational. Staff always get involved with activities and games which is just one of the many reasons my kids love and look forward to their time at The Kangaroo Club."

- Selina Cope

"My Daughter is leaving The Kangaroo club to begin school and I would like to thank all the kangaroo club staff for everything they have done for her over the last two years, she has come on so much, she is a much more confident and independant girl now. Thanks for all your help."

- Emma Brown

"My Daughter loves nursery and gets very excited in the car park when we arrive. The pace of her development over the past few months has been amazing. She loves doing role play, singing , dancing and most of all playing outside. The more messy the play the more fun she seems to have. Thanks for your hard work."
