It's clear that Charles just loves being at Ballykin. The programmes and activities are fun and engaging, and keep the children on their developmental path. The fact that he doesn’t want to leave when its home time is a great testament to the positive environment they have created.

Ballykin is a wonderful place. We really appreciate the small class size and that there's at least 3 educators per class. The educators are fantastic, really caring and full of enthusiasm.
