Comments from families on Sure Start:

  • Great to get kids out of the house and mixing with and kids.  It is great that the sessions are free.
  • My child has learned to share toys etc.   Great to get them out to mix with everyone, same for Mums and Dads.
  • I decided to attend the Sure Start  ‘Cook It’ Programme because it is a fun programme and you learn to cook healthier.
