My daughter attended Bobtails for one year and thrived in an environment whereby the staff excelled in their jobs to ensure the children had every opportunity to learn. My son has already started at Bobtails and is loving being there. I do not even get a wave goodbye…he is off to play! A very high and professional standard of care to the children. I would highly recommend Bobtails to any parent wanting their child/ren to excel, develop and enjoy!

Bobtails Playgroup is fantastic! My three year old started by going to the ‘stay and play’ Teddy Club and then, when she was 2.5, moved onto Bobtails for four mornings a week. It’s hard being a working mum and the guilt that comes with dropping her off whilst I dash off to work but my daughter loves going to Bobtails and skips and runs into the Playgroup every morning – making my guilt that little bit easier! She has developed so much over the past year – her confidence has grown, she has learnt how to play nicely with lots of other children and she is being prepared for the move to ‘big school’ later this year. The staff at Bobtails are really caring and understanding. They offer regular coffee mornings where I can go and visit and see how my little girl is doing and I can meet up with her key worker and review her learning journal. I was quite nervous at first leaving my little girl in a strange place with strange people but seeing how much time they take to get to know the children, and knowing that they are parents themselves really does make a huge difference. It is no surprise that Bobtails has an ‘outstanding’ Ofsted rating – they really are great!
