Good service
Happy with service received. I was happy to receive a call back as promised as some people dont call back.
Excellent
I was interested in being a childminder and was given the number by a friend. They put me through to the right people and I got all the info needed. Very satisfied with the service.
Rang up for help with childcare...
I found the service very helpful and can see myself calling back if I needed any further advice.
