On the spot

This is a superb garden and the provision for the children is fantastic. We don't feel that we're in the way when we're walking round and it's free.

What more could you ask?

I'm a member of the RHS and have been coming to Harlow Carr for years. I found out about the education facilities through the RHS magazine and immediately thought that we should be in on it. We will be coming here again and we'll be joining the RHS Schools Membership Scheme.

Debbie is marvellous. She's very knowledgeable and is aware of the science learning objectives. She keeps the children under control, pitches everything at the right level, and gets them to make careful observations.

She also asks open questions, takes any answers, and never puts anyone down.

The children are coming up to Sats. They will go back to school clear-minded and not feeling stressed. They had a lovely time and learnt and did things they will never forget.
