Tear in the eye moments

"Both my children have attended Scallywags from 8 months old. They are now 7 and 4. Scallywags have played a huge role in the way my children have been brought up. Installing confidence, manners, being sociable, caring and learning new things.
The school they attend said they can always tell when a child has attended Scallywags. If I could give them more than 5 stars I would. It’s a lovely bright setting and many staff have been there from when my daughter attended over 7 years ago. My Son has cerebral palsy and the staff have been fantastic with him. I’ve felt so lucky finding such a great nursery and my children will continue to attend their holiday club."

Choosing a childcare setting can be a scary process, we try to make life as easy as possible for you.
