      Oscar's mum

    • I have had two children attend HCCP over the last three years. The thing we love best is the warmth of care provided by the four staff members there – I have no doubt whenI leave my son there each morning he is having fun and making friends, but also being esteemed, nurtured, and challenged by the HCCP team.

      Elijah’s mum

    • The staff are amazing; brilliant with the children and so caring and supportive. Josie settled in quickly and she loves her mornings playing with her friends and doing all the different activities. The community aspect of it is great. It’s a really special place.
