Really impressed especially with outdoor provision and the enthusiasm of staff  Leapfrog children, staff and parents had a fantastic time on our trip to Sycamore just before Christmas. The children explored a wide range of indoor and outdoor activities, and we were all made to feel very welcome and included. Santa was brilliant with our children, and some very precious memories were made for them and their parents. Some families who hadn't been before will definitely be visiting again. Thanks to Will and the Sycamore team - we can't wait to come again. :)  Our Toddler group had a fantastic time at Sycamore, despite the rain and wind. Our parents all commented on how grateful they felt that they had somewhere safe for their children to play. We also received a lot of positive remarks about how cheap the food was as well as the portion sizes. Staff were very helpful and extremely friendly. Our staff felt comfortable in the knowledge that they had support from professional colleagues at Sycamore. There is a small issue I feel could be rectified and this is that the indoor play area is at the top of the stairs, and there are not any baby safety gates. Although it is the responsibility of the parents to ensure their children are not climbing up and down stairs unassisted, there were occasions when this could not be helped. We cannot wait to return to Sycamore.  All children had an amazing time. Staff were really helpful and understanding. Thanks again and see you soon  Very friendly staff, lots of activities accessible to all needs.
