What Parents Think

"My young boys were partly brought up by the staff at Merry-Go-Round and I can confidently say that they benefited greatly from the experience. It set both of them up with all the mental, social, physical and academic skills needed to make a success of entering foundation stage, but it also set them up to be confident young boys.  My wife and I also have fond memories of the time and all the friends that we made while being part of the committee."
