5 Star Rating "It's a lovely centre with lots of education sessions to attend and wonderful staff. I have been going to this since with 2013 and have always loved all my time there. My kids are in school now and anytime we go there, the staff welcome us. I totally recommend this centre".   Google Review August 2018

5 Star Rating  "We first came to the centre when our child was 3 months old and have come back on regular basis since.  The centre is well designed and I like that they run special events like Christmas parties and Fathers Day card masking sessions.  They support parent with programs like potty training, weaning and sleep advice.  A big  bonus for us is the sense of security you get from being in a centre where everyone is a registered member and it feels like a safe place for children  to play”.  Facebook Review July 2018

5 Star Rating  “I had a great experience with the baby massage course held at this children’s centre. The instructor was friendly and knowledgeable.  I have also attended heuristic play and sensory play sessions here. It’s interesting that there is a different theme to the play every week (wood, fabric, etc). The sensory room is also nice; however, it is in the school next door so you need to be escorted if you need to leave the session early- but the children’s centre staff have been very accommodating with this in my experience”Google Review May 2018

5 Star Rating  “The best children's centre in Newham by far.  My children absolutely love this place. We try and attend their regular playgroups and events they organise throughout the year. There are always plenty of things to do and new skills to learn for them as they grow. The centre set up is very welcoming and clean.  What really makes this place special is the staff that work there. They always have a smile for you, they are all very attentive, inclusive and promote positive environment where children and the community can grow well together. You can tell that they really care. Thank you for being so great!” Google Review May 2018
