Our local officer has been fantastic in the support and advice that she has provided. Always keeps us up to date with what is going on and sends info on useful websites, forthcoming training opportunities etc.

It was an excellent journey with lots of learning opportunities.

It has made me a more confident key worker. I feel I know what I am talking about with child’s development.

Great for grannies too. What fun they are all having! The blog is an excellent way of opening up the nursery.

Great ideas! Thanks for the inspiration!

What members say about our Parent Toddler Support

Without CALA we wouldn’t be able to operate. We’ve gone from a group whose numbers were so low, feasibility of continuing was being questioned, to a group that is buzzing and big.
