  1. Kate from Lingotot Southend runs the most fun and engaging language classes. We’ve been enjoying online lessons in lockdown and my four year old son loves Lingotot. Thanks so much Kate- would highly recommend! X

  2. My children both love going to Little City. It’s the only class we’ve found that caters for a wide range in ages and I feel comfortable as a Dad to take them. The toys are always immaculately clean and it’s a very friendly atmosphere and my two never want to leave!

  3. The Kids Are Playing on Facebook or Instagram has lots of suggestions of local events and places to go. There is always a new place we haven’t visited!

  4. Colchester miracle support group has grown from strength to strength they now have many support groups around Colchester. They offer friendship, help and support to mums especially who have had such a worrying stressful crisis while their babies have been in the Neonatal unit. They have all been through this worrying time and it is very reassuring to have a friendly mum who has been through this themselves. They have also raised thousands of pounds to support the Neonatal unit to purchase equipment and have recently refurbished the children’s/parents room. This has been very gratefully received by staff and parents. The Colchester Neonatal medical and nursing team all recommend this fantastic support group who work tirelessly to help families in crisis. Neonatal Ward Manager Sister Karen Moss .
