The Roundabout Centre Believes…

Everybody is welcome and included throughout the centre.

That we respect one another.

That we listen to everyone’s views and feelings, recognising that we are all individuals.

That staff will be working together for the benefit of families and the community.

 

Quotes from families that come to The Roundabout Centre

Child: ‘I like it here’

Parent (Dad): ‘For me, the chance to spend some time with my kids, playing and doing fun stuff. For the kids, a chance to meet and play with friends. All this, plus the chance to talk to other Dad’s, and a good breakfast too’

Child: ‘The best children centre in the world, you’ve got good toys’
