"My little one has grown in confidence since attending Small Friends""My little one has grown in confidence since attending Small Friends. She has bonded very well with her key worker, and I am confident in the care they provide. She always comes out smiling when I collect her, and I enjoy the feedback provided at the end of the day."
"The kids wellbeing comes first and she loves going there""I have three children and over the years they have been to various nurserys in the local area. My youngest goes to small friends in leigh and i wish the others had gone there. The staff are great and it is run like a nursery more than a business which cant be said for the other ones you get a real feeling the kids wellbeing comes first and she loves going there and that says it all."
