Rockets Holiday Club

What a fabulous day for Sam! I had no doubt Sophie’s holiday club would be as fab as when he came to nursery - he wants to come again

Layla has had an amazing couple of days. Highly recommended!

Thanks so much for today. Sam just loved it! He said to me in the car ‘why did you come back so quickly mummy, I wanted to stay all day?’ He didn’t believe me when I told him he had been there all day!
