Our little boy has been with Linda for the past year. She provides a loving family setting, with lots of fun and cuddles.
Our son has been very happy there and very well looked after. Linda always provides freshly cooked wholesome lunches and always manages to get our boy to eat, much better than I ever can!
Linda is a joy to work with, she is friendly, understanding and patient and will always go out of her way to help us, if we need last minute childcare, are running late, or for just good advice on our son, as first-time parents.
As soon as I met Linda, I knew she was the childminder for me. She was so warm, and my son took to her immediately. The settling in sessions were wonderful and when it came to returning to work, I knew I wouldn’t have to worry about him, being in such a loving and caring environment.
My daughter had only been going to Amanda's for a short time in which time she had come on in her development. She was very happy to go to Amanda's and she can't wait to get back.
She'd always talk positively about her time at Amanda's and what they had been doing. My daughter is also adopted so has early trauma, Amanda has helped her through some of her difficulties with understanding. My little one has complex needs but Amanda was not phased by this which is what we really needed in a child minder.
I literally don't know where to start with Sam! I first found her for my second child as i was looking for a childminder near my first's nursery for easy pick ups and drop offs and what an absolute gem of a find she was! Since those early days she has not only cared for my second but also third child and first one when needed too. She is an absolutely incredible childminder and the kids have all flourished from being with her. She does lots of activities with them and trips out and they absolutely love the animals and garden. Sam showers them with love and attention and guidance and the kids go in and as well as leave with huge smiles on their faces. I cannot recommend Sam highly enough (she almost makes me want to have another.......but not quite!!) Thank you for everything over the years Sam xx
We absolutely couldn't be happier with Michelle and the setting she provides for our daughter. After considering our options for childcare in the area, including nurseries, I know that we have made the best choice and we are so lucky to have Michelle on our doorstep. Our daughter has been with Michelle since she was 15 months old when she wouldn't leave my side. She settled very quickly into her days there and in that time we have seen her blossom into a confident, happy and chatty little lady. She is always happy to see Michelle in the mornings and Michelle is always brilliant at keeping us updated on her days with her, through photos during the day and chats at the end of the day. They always have busy days, visiting toddler groups and the parks around the area. Our daughter loves Michelle, her family and all the other children she spends the day with there and we couldn't be happier.

Nabila is amazing! My little boy was so happy while going to her setting. He was always well looked after, fed with proper healthy food and entertained. She kept perfect track of his development and kept us up to date with the activities. Nabila followed up on whatever requests we may have had, she is warm and very professional. The setting is incredibly clean and well maintained, her whole family is lovely. She also looked after him during the night and he was so calm with her, she felt like part of our family.
We will truly miss her, but we had to move... All the best Nabila and thank you for everything!!
Sarah contacted us based on our profile and was able to help us out for three days a week for two weeks while mum recovered from a short stay in hospital.
Our daughter was 8 weeks old at the time and had some temporary health issues which meant that she was tube fed and had an airway to help her breathe. This certainly didn't scare Sarah off and she got stuck in and helped out a great deal from the first day.
Even though we only worked with Sarah for a short time, we found her to be reliable, punctual, great with our daughter, thoughtful and flexible. Based on our experience, we are happy to give her a great review.
Charlotte has been looking after our little boy for some time now and she has been fantastic.
Always helpful and supportive and excellent at keeping in touch with us whenever she has any concerns or questions about our son. Also brilliant at keeping updated with more formal/practical information.
My son really has taken to Charlotte and enjoyed spending time with her. She took him out to mead open farm, baby groups and the zoo many times and always sent us lots of beautiful pictures to let us know what he had been up to. I was always guaranteed my son would have a good nights sleep after a fun filled day with Charlotte.
I can not recommend her enough and I know my son will miss her lots.

There is no-one I would trust more to look after my child. We have used Sarah as a childminder and babysitter since our daughter was 9-months old when we were very nervous new parents! We have always felt totally confident in the fact that our daughter was in the safest possible hands with Sarah. She is calm, capable, incredibly experienced and has so much fun with the children she looks after. Her boundless energy and enthusiasm for her work with kids is extraordinary. Our daughter is the happy, confident, secure, healthy-eating little girl she is today largely because of her time in Sarah's care and we couldn't recommend her more highly as a childminder and/or babysitter.
As a babysitter Claire has always arrived on time. She will keep me updated on how the children are doing and would always arrive with activities for the children to do before we leave. I feel confident and I trust Claire, she does such a great job and the children, and we love her.
We took our daughter to Paul and Caroline when she was 9 months old and had never been left with anyone other than us, but they mad us feel at ease and Olivia warmed to them straight away. They are a wonderful family with a lovely home. They are great with communication and go above and beyond to support your child's development. They have a very inclusive approach and offer so many resources to parents. Olivia is always eager to see them and is obvious that she spends the day in a nurturing environment. We are so thankful to have found them and cannot recommend them enough.
Meegan and the team are honestly brilliant.
My daughter has only been going a few weeks but had such a great experience. I was so nervous to leave her when I went back to work but the team just made me feel at ease.
My daughter comes away smiling and happy and that’s all I can really ask for as a parent.
We used Meegen for approximately a year and our daughter really benefited from being there. Over her time at Meegens, we have seen her confidence and social skills really grow and develop. For us, it was a great option as it is like a mini nursery set up. Meegen has also give us flexibility with childcare which has been invaluable to us.
We met Jo through her role at the local nursery for our two sons aged 1 & 4. She has known our oldest son since he was just over 2 years old.
Since then Jo has babysat our boys on an ad hoc basis for a combination of time frames (for a day or just an evening and sometimes both) and we would always contact her for support with our childcare in the first instance.
Our boys love spending time with her as she makes everything fun for them and they are so comfortable in her company.
Whilst being fun for the boys, Jo has a great focus on development and learning and how to challenge them.
She is an extremely reliable, positive and relaxed character. We have no hesitations recommending her.

As soon as I met Dessy I felt relaxed and confident that she would be the right person to look after my son. Her personality is energetic, fun and loving. The setting is really bright and homely with a great outside space and plenty of toys.
My son has been with Dessy 2 days a week for the past 5 months. He settled in very quickly and really enjoys his days with Dessy and the other children. He has also developed a lot of new skills.
The communication has also been great with the occasional photo and video throughout the day to show how much fun my son is having. As first time mum this gives me real peace of mind.
I would recommend Dessy, she is a fantastic childminder.
Fran is amazing, she is like a 2nd mum to my son Ryan! She is loving in nature, kind and caring and super accommodating. She has welcomed us into to her home and made Ryan feel like part of the family. She provides daily updates showing him having fun in different surroundings; she always makes an effort to vary the activities. Ryan gets excited in the mornings going to hers which is a testament to her exemplary nature.
I would highly recommend Kate to anyone looking to feel at ease that their little one is being left in the safest hands.
The atmosphere in her house is just so nice, the moment you arrive they feel at home and tinker off to go and play with some of the many toys, games and entertainment available. I was so happy about the cleanliness and tidiness which make a perfect environment for toddlers to learn and play.
Our daughter learnt so much whilst there, and her development came on so much which was amazing and she just loved the little crew there (and the 2 cats!)
She had lots of lovely outings and did loads of art and craft activities, she always came home happy and tired !
Couldn't recommend more.
Thanks so much Kate x

Brillant childminder and a lovely, really warm person.
Our son loved being there , he was really happy and comfortable from
The beginning, which made it very easy for us.
Sometimes it can be very difficult when it comes to leaving your child with someone , but we didn’t have such problem. He loved it there from the very first time we came for an interview.
Unfortunately, we have moved home so we had to place our son in a nursery closer to home but I know for sure that my little boy will definitely miss his auntie.
We would like to say big thank you for all your help and support.
