From our happy parents & carers

Natalie & family

The best thing about Playwam is that we are always so welcome & wanted, it feels like a family. You never rush us out and the atmosphere is so calm & friendly. I honestly don’t know how you could improve, it’s perfect! I feel so fortunate that our children could come to Playwam.

Lelia & Christian

Thank you so very much for giving Niamh such a wonderful year full of fun, creativity and inspiration. She has loved every minute and we have so enjoyed watching her develop across the year. We couldn’t have wished for a better pre-school setting. Playwam is unique and you ladies keep it this way!

Chris & Susie

Thank you all so very much for the wonderful care and development you have given to Daisy this year. She has enjoyed her time with you hugely and we have been amazed at her development during the year.

Emma & Chris

As all mothers, I felt very anxious about relinquishing my first born into the hurly burly of playgroup! But you made it almost easy and over the past two years it’s been like leaving him with family. You greet and treat all the children with such interest and enthusiasm and with all the marvellous things you do, foster a real sense of wonder in the world around.
