They are both lovely, open minded people who work with you to ensure your child’s needs are met. My son loved them and still always fondly of them both. Thank you Severine and Valentine!


Severine and Valentine have been wonderful with her and a great support to me and her dad helping us weaning her as well as potty training her.
