    I started coming to Playhouse when my little boy was 18 months old and I was expecting my second child. I felt at home and relaxed, when I had my new baby, my son could play happily while I could comfortably feed my baby. So it was great for all of us. That was over 6 years ago and now I attend with my third child who loves it! I have mad many friends and connections at Playhouse. There isn't anywhere else like it. Alison Quinn (Reciprocal Care)
