This is an amazing place to drop off your loved ones to play and learn while you earn. Staff are fully trained and care greatly for the children.

This is a truly excellent nursery. The staff are so caring and attentive and clearly enjoy their work. The children look so happy and engaged in the wide range of activities available.

i used to go to happidayz nursery, i very much enjoyed it and highly reccomend you try happidayz as i had a really good time there

Our son Nicholas has been attending Happidayz since he was 9 months old (18 months ago) in that time there has not been a moment he has not loved or that we have had any thing less than total satisfaction with our choice. With both of us working it was really important to have the peace of mind *knowing* without a shadow of a doubt how well he is cared for, how happy he is and that he is being developed through the use of structured and educational activities. We would (and have) recommend Happidayz without reservation - in our opinion the facilities, staff and whole experience have been exceptional.

ETS Tutors

10 Fitzwilliam Rd, Rotherham S65 1PT, UK – 020 8720 7333

My Son is going to ETS tutors for his GCSE Maths. They are really friendly, and helpful. We are very pleased with the standard of tuition, the teachers are clearly very experienced. He does not always find school lessons interesting, but he looks forward to going to the centre on a Saturday. The online learning he can access at home is a great addition to the homework the centre gives him. Thank you very much ETS tutors.

I was really pleased with the tuition my son received. Without the boost from ETS tutors he would not have passed his GCSE Maths, so I am more than happy to recommend them.
