It's a fantastic service, which my kids have enjoyed, and it was good value for money too. Having this service enabled me to spend valuable time with my kids on my work day and show them where I work. They loved the experience and it was an easy option for me to work while the kids are off school. The programme Tinies runs includes a good balance of fresh air, making new friends, doing fun activities and relaxing watching a movie.

Could be promoted more in HMRC. It was difficult to find the booking website and I only knew to look because I had seen the playscheme in the building previously. The trip on Wednesday is good, but the timing leaves little no option for me to deal with childcare for my younger child.

Both children enjoyed their days especially the day trip out on the Wednesday.

They said the room they were put in was several floor down in a basement and got very very hot. Perhaps in future a ground level room could be used - I have to say the room sounded very grim.

Extremely poor communication with parents. Did not request permission from parents to take child off site on day trip. Repeatedly failed to give information on timing for day trip. Late returning and were uncontactable (wrong mobile provided) and lied that they had tried to contact me. A complete disaster in terms of communication with parents.

Takes 15 minutes each time to collect a child from HMT.

My daughter loves this superb club. She's never once complained about going or been difficult about being dropped off. She always has an interesting day and comes back with stories about where she's been, the friends she's made or things she's made. All the staff are lovely and invariably cheerful. Really brilliant.

My son did not enjoy the club this time around. Too many staff changes and lack of consistency. Lots of waiting around at reception for the kids to be collected or brought. I don't think people managed my son well and on one occasion I had to go there to speak to him and settle him down. He lost his lunch box and his water bottle and despite them having his name on them and mentioning it to staff, i still didn't get them back. Will Tinies be reimbursing me?

Working for HMT, I am not usually based in London but when I do need to work in London I would definitely book my children into Tinies again during the school holidays. My children loved the facilities and enjoyed going to work with me. I came away with 2 happy children - thank you!

This is a brilliant Holiday Club, excellent staff and always interesting activities for the children to do. My daughter is always happy to go and doesn't make a fuss about being dropped off (unlike some other clubs she's been to) which surely is an indication of the Club's high quality.

My daughter attended for 2 days this week and enjoyed them both. Wet weather meant that the day out to the park was cancelled and a cinema trip took place instead. She enjoyed it but as a parent I think I would rather know in advance the film so I could decide whether it was something I wanted my child to see. Perhaps the alternative wet weather plan could be published in advance on the programme of activities?

The only difficulty was with having clarity about how to drop my daughter off the first time - It wasn't clear in the information provided by email that the process was to go to reception and that they would call the team to come and get my daughter. I wanted to take her to the room myself as she was going to the first time and I know the building well. The staff at the call centre didn't know the building or where the club was being held exactly. It would be better to have slightly clearer information for parents using the club for the first time. On a separate note - I managed to book the incorrect venue the first time and when I call the call centre they were very helpful and sorted it out - although it did take a couple of phone calls to get right.

My son had a very good time at the HMT Playscheme. The staff were friendly and made him feel very welcome. He enjoyed the daily visits to the park and the trip to Holland Park.

I cannot comment on the standard of the facilities as I did not see them myself.

I think it would be useful if the playscheme was open from 0800.
