Highly disappointing given this service markets itself as the best. Our son broke his elbow while in their care due to a lack of supervision. Management was appalling - blamed our son, made no move to look into how it happened. Ministry of Education investigated and said the problem was bigger than our son. Don't be fooled by the name, this place is not up to standard.
Miranda dislikes: Poor management, Health and safety not a priority, Staff with no first aid training, Poor communication, Staff not monitoring play area adequately, Unsafe play area design, Prioritise reputation over duty of care
