“Debbie & Jo provide our nursery with a fabulous service, attending once a month to cut the children's hair. They have great relationships with the children and the parents ensuring both are happy with the procedure and results. By leaving their cutting chair on site the children get used to its presence and even look forward to their turn to sit in it coming up! As a nursery manager, I find Debbie & Jo’s service a fantastic marketing and selling point to parents who have endured the trials of entering a noisy salon with a nervous under five. It gives parents one less chore for the weekends which is what I think all working parents are after!
Even children who are at first unsure have been won around by Debbie & Jo’s brilliant distraction techniques, all children leave the chair happily munching on raisins! I would thoroughly recommend Debbie's service to other day nurseries.” – Sarah Buckley, London City Busy Bees Nursery Manager.
Queensberry Nursery has been using Debbie’s service for the last 2 years (going into our 3rd year now). We have known Debbie longer as her own child came to our Nursery so it was perfect helping out one of our own parents on her own business path. Debbie has set Tots Crops up from scratch, we think that she has set up a fantastic business and we are very proud of her.
It has been very popular service with our parents because it takes the pressure off them getting regular haircuts for their child as it is all done in the Nursery, during their child’s school day, on a regular 6weekly basis. They are also benefitting from this service as they get the same person cutting their child’s hair at each appointment and not a different person every time. This helps the children as they get to know Debbie very well and they build up their own relationship with her. She puts the children at ease, she is an extremely friendly and jolly person and the children are always happy in her company.
Our parents are so happy with the service Debbie provides they ask if they can bring in their child’s siblings (who are not at our Nursery) as it makes things so much easier for them. Knowing that their children are happy takes all the stress out of haircutting trips. As long as Debbie is happy we do not object to siblings coming in, we know them all anyway.
The whole service Debbie gives is fantastic there is no hassle to the Nursery as it is all booked and paid for on-line. She comes in on the morning of her appointments lets us know who is booked in so we can tell her which rooms they are in then she is off and busy. Debbie uses the same room each time she is here and has her own special chair which the children love; it is an easy service to use and one that has been very popular.
We would highly recommend Debbie & the Tots Crops service to any Nursery - Queensberry Nursery
“My daughter Ida decided to try to cut her hair by herself...Deborah remediated the disaster brilliantly and found a hairstyle that actually suits Ida better than anything else she had before! I am really pleased.” – Giovanna.
“I just wanted to say thanks for your excellent service! I used to have to travel across London to have my son’s hair cut on my one day off a week with him. Now all I have to do is to send him to nursery as usual! Job done! Not only is it convenient for a working mum like me but Will clearly loves it and you. He is always very happy to have his hair cut done at nursery and tells everyone that he’s had his “hair cut today.” We’ve also had lots of nice comments about his hair making me a very proud Mum. What a brilliant idea.” – Anita.
“Just wanted to say that we think (Benedict & I) that the service you provide cutting the children's hair whilst at nursery is a brilliant idea, it works really well and makes life much easier for me. Benedict loves his haircut and after seeing you (after the initial screams when he did not want his haircut) he is always cheerful and he is now adamant that no one else can cut his hair - only Debbie! You cut his hair according to directions and offer a quick, efficient and very reasonably priced service.” – Lesley.
“Our son is 2 1/2 and he used to cling on to me for dear life when we went to get his hair trimmed whilst the poor hairdresser had to find a way of giving him a tidy haircut despite his wriggling. However, now that Deborah comes to his nursery, she has clearly put him at ease and he looks forward to his next haircut and sitting in the big chair again. I, on the other hand, do not have to dread the next trip to the barbers. - Mary
You have no idea how much we love Dylan's hair cut. My husband says at least once a day how much he likes it!! Thank you very much, & for the pictures too. - Viviane mum to Dylan age 1 (Central London)
When Daisy decided to cut her own hair, thank goodness Debbie was at hand to salvage the mess! The resulting bob is beautiful and Daisy now loves getting a trim whenever Debbie's in nursery. - Lucy mum to Daisy age 4 (West London)
Jo’s professionalism, persistence and kindness towards my son has helped him to love getting his hair cut. It is also convenient and a great value. - Angela mum to Joaquin age 3 (South London)
“I first met Debbie when she visited my nursery for a place for her then young daughter, we quickly formed a very good friendship, so when Debbie approached me with her fantastic idea of setting up a children s hair cutting service within the nursery setting, I jumped at the chance.
After working with Debbie for a number of years, it is clear to see that the service she and her team provide is simply outstanding, their passion and dedication is second to none. The children always feel safe and secure and really enjoy having their haircut whilst listening to music and eating treats such as raisins in the beautiful and colourful hairdressing chair.
Debbie and her team have a wonderful relationship with the children, their enthusiasm and caring nature shines through.
I have to say that due to the professionalism of this service, it is definitely a great selling point of our nursery, our parents will be the first to say that this is an added bonus to the facilities we offer and what a wonderful idea. It really takes the stress and hassle away from busy families who want to spend quality time with their children at the weekend, rather than having upset and tears when visiting a salon.”
Thank you Tots Crops. Alex Hofert - nursery manager City Child, Bright horizons
