The kids’ club leaders are extremely caring and take an active involvement in the children at an individual level. They provide a wide range of stimulating activities for the children. I am confident that my children are well cared for, guided and supported.

A really friendly atmosphere, the two children love it. Sometimes I find it difficult for them to come home – (they never want to leave). All the staff are lovely!

My daughter seems to have settled in really well. It really helped her to be integrated gradually – eventually staying for snacks.
The staff are super friendly and seem to know my daughter well which is hugely reassuring!

I just wanted to say EGKC is a wonderful place and both my two have loved it and still do. The staff are fabulous and friendly and you have always gone the extra mile to help and accommodate me. Thank you so much for everything you have done over the last 5 years and I am so very grateful. I wish you continued success.
