Me and my wife who both work in childcare visited the centre before our twin girls came along. We were looking for support and activities in the local community.
We have made use of numerous activities like baby group, titchy tots, family activities and even dads group.
The opportunity arose for us to be part of the up and coming family group and now play key roles in the local community activities and fundraisers. This is helping us gather skills and perspectives for our work and for our life.
For me, I would like to see the centre open later and weekends to bring in full family including dads.Another thing that hindered our use of the centre is the location, as both centres are a fair distance to walk and for a double buggy this became a troubling task for my wife.
I would like to commend most of the staff at the centre for being friendly and welcoming and supporting us in the areas when asked and also that they are very professional and run a excellent service to the community.
Recently, we have had several successes in our journey as my wife has just got a job and as our parents group has just been established as T. O. F. F (Titchfied and Oakham Family Forum). This is only the start and looks promising for the future.
