- My Time Now young people's comments

I do feel that safeguarding and wellbeing of the children is fully prioritised and staff go to great lengths to support families and children. The Nursery demonstrates empathy and works hard to ensure fairness for families/children here. Really stands out as 'safe space' for children.

- My Time Too children's comments

I just want to thank everyone at FSN who have made the last two years so amazing. I have learnt so much and met so many inspiring people. The work you do with the community truly changes lives, as it changed mine. The courses you provide have led me into employment and given me the skills to create a life for myself.
I will continue to sing your praises to those that I meet and tell people about the amazing work that you do and hope that FSN thrives for many years to come. I know you'll touch many lives as you did mine.
