"A parents view of a Ravensdale Stay and Play session at Forest Town Arena"

About: Ravensdale Children's Centre

(as a staff member),

I go to three Surestart sessions every week, I have two children and they absolutely love going, It gives them oppotunities to play with new toys and do activities that they may not do at home. It also gives us parents a chance to talk to each other and share experiences about child development. I find the staff very helpful and the boys talk about them at home. As we do not get funding for nursery, surestart is a great oppotunity for my boys to socialise with other children. We get oppotunities to go on trips and meet at parks and we really enjoy it. I have attended adult learning courses to which I have gained a certificate for First Aid and enjoyed the course when my boys were in creche. We really enjoy Surestart and would not be without it. All three groups we attend Oak Tree and Ravensdale are excellent. I would definately recommend these groups to all my friends.

Thank you for your feedback about our services/sessions, at the South East Mansfield Children's Centre cluster. It is great to hear that we have been able to support you to gain valuable skills, such as First Aid, and that your boys enjoy attending our various sessions. I will ensure that I share your comments with the team.

Thank you for your time and support
