My son was 7 months old when I returned to work and put him in care at Kids Company - Cheltenham. He is now just over 2 years old.
I was, many years ago, a child care worker and visited a couple of centres in the area. I chose Kids Company -Cheltenham because they had planned the activities and curriculum. I was impressed with the centre set up and the carers were all very nurturing.
My son has excelled in meeting milestones and I attribute this to his carers. Going back to work full time was difficult but knowing my son was well cared for and learning so much was comforting.
Finally, the times my son was ill, struck by temperatures, colds/flus etc I would come to pick him up and he was ALWAYS in someone's arms and being cared for -just like I would...that's what I wanted from a centre!!!
My daughters are 2, 3 and 4 and started here 18 months ago. The staff are the most caring, nurturing and loving I've ever come across. The management are incredible and very accommodating, you can tell they all love their jobs. When I was in a sticky situation they were very flexible which was a definite stress reliever. Every parent I come across looking for a child care centre in this area, I always recommend Kids Company. These are the kind of people you can trust to educate and nurture your children.
