"Beth was totally brilliant, the kids LOVED her and the parents all commented on how fantastic she was" March 2019
I can’t suggest any improvements as Beth was great! She kept the children well entertained and engaged. I’m glad that I went for the hour option as suggested on your website as I think that was the perfect length for such small children and any longer it would have been hard to keep them on track!
We give top marks for the entertainment and wouldn’t hesitate to use you again and recommend you to other people. Feb 2020
