My son always seems to have enjoyed himself and comes out smiling. Staff are quick to respond to questions too - when I asked about the daily information sheet and said I found it useful to see what my son had done during the day, I was given one the next day. When I emailed a question about an excursion staff where very keen to provide me with a full answer.

Booking made around 4.30pm on Tuesday for Wednesday and Friday.

Booking understandably wasn't noted on Wednesday morning, bearing in mind late Tuesday booking. But your staff didn't have a record of it on Friday either - the second day my boys were attending.

This was the first time I used the holiday club for my son. Everything was very straightforward and he was welcomed by the friendly staff. The only negative was that having reviewed the holiday schedule I was expecting different activities to take place on the day than what actually took place. However, my son had a generally positive experience and we will use the service again when needed.

The staff at Treasury are very nice, but we were a bit disappointed with the level of activities for older kids. The advert said that things like cricket and tag rugby would be played in the park, but in practice (so far as our kids told us) this didn't happen. On the friday they didn't go outside to play at all so got no exercise. Our children really need physical exercise every day, and ideally some structured/fun activities to play like tag rugby or whatever - older children get quickly bored with the early years activities on offer. Please could this be addressed for next time, or alternatively should you adjust your advert to make clear it's mainly suitable for under 7s?

My daughter enjoyed her two days at holiday club. However on the trip she said she was lonely and didn't have anyone to play with. It would have been nice if staff had picked up on this. My daughter said they didn't actually leave until after 1030 even though we are told to get the children there for 0930 and she said they were back by 1500 so it wasn't really a whole day's trip. She said the staff didn't make up any games - the children just had to amuse themselves in the playground. So I think perhaps a bit more creativity and interaction would be great next time round. I would like to book in my daughter during the summer break but she's not that enthusiastic at the moment.

Also I was kept waiting both mornings as there was no staff in the reception area. And even when I rang ahead to say I would like to pick up my daughter in 10 minutes, I still had to wait in reception area for 10 minutes. So it would be great if the drop-off and pick-up could be made quicker so we can get to our work/meetings on time.

Otherwise a great service which I want to use again.

The children enjoyed their two days there. T*he online booking did nto really work as it said there were no spaces, yet whenI phoned I was told there was space, and on the days my children attended there was more space. I expect some parents used the online service andf assumed it was full.

Stuck for childcare over the half term we decided to give Tinies a go, it is located in my building which was excellent in terms of convenience, the staff were really friendly and managed to get my son , who was very reluctant, into the room and got him talking Dinosaurs which is his favourite subject. I was very pleased and would definitely use Tinies again.

re 3 to 8. I have answered this based on the fact that Edward says he would like to return, I have never been offered a tour of the facilities, I only know what they do from what he tells me so to be honest I really have no idea if the facilities are good, value for money or the service and standard of care is good or bad. People seem professional enough but that is really all I know.

My only concern when I took Sophia in the morning was that there was just 2 members of staff, who both went to collect children from Reception, leaving the play scheme rooms empty. Sophia and I didn't have to wait for very long before they appeared with 4 more children. I can understand that it is difficult when members of staff call in sick at short notice. When I collected Sophia I was pleased to see an additional member of staff - therefore 3 members of staff to the ratio of 19 children (which I was informed there were on site this day - Monday 15 February).

Thank you for your free back. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have cause, unfortunely on that day we had a little trouble with security letting us down to the playroom before the you had arrived we did manage to sort out the problem very quickly and had all three members of staff in the playroom all day
