    Comments:
    "I regularly send my kids to Planet Sitges in the holidays and they absolutely love it.  There is such a wide range of activities and games, particularly arts and crafts, that they are never bored there. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, and Bridgets staff are all popular with my girls.  The staff-to-child ratio is good (and I understand it is much higher at the morning school), and Bridget keeps the children not only well-looked after, but also well controlled. She expects good behaviour from them and therefore gets it. I can recommend it unreservedly." (HS, Jan 2009)

    Comments:
    "Classes are for children from 5 upwards. I find it especially important, as my children both attend an international school here, that they partake in local extra-curricular activities. Although we wanted a British education for our children it seemed such a shame to isolate them for their local community and activities such as basket ball are a fantastic way to integrate. The baby basquet is held at the local Esteve Barrachina school."

    Comments:
    "I recently discovered Tikotta riding school in Canyelles. My children have been going to the esplai (summer school) there. They love it and so do I. Tikotta is set in acres of land with a rustic feel, you´d think you were in the middle of the countryside! The other day I watched my little boy working. He filled a wheelbarrow with hay, pushed it up a small hill and then fed an appreciative horse. His twin sister can be a handful. Shes infamous in Canyelles for her strong character, infact her name has been used as an adjective to describe willful unruly behaviour. In Tikotta they tell me she behaves well! I don´t know whether it´s the fresh air, the open space, the contact with horses or the easygoing atmosphere!" (ER, Feb 2008)
