Larain, Leah and Gill have been looking after my little Jasmine since the age of 9 months, she is now 2 and I couldn't wish for anyone else to care for her, they offer such a caring and kind environment. Jasmine has additional needs, she suffered a major stroke at birth which has resulted in her having a form of Cerebral Palsy, Jasmine requires a lot of development and supervision as well as Larain and her team needing to understand the Physio requirements, they have taken this all in their stride, happily accepted training from Jasmines Physio team and actively encourage her daily. Jasmine has developed amazingly from being in this setting and I personally cannot Thank Larain and her team for their ongoing care, kindness and drive to ensure Jasmine keeps tracking her milestones.

I am so happy that we have found Laura and Richard to look after our little boy. We have been with them for nearly six months and I couldn’t be more happier.
My little boy is supported in all areas of his development and we constantly get updated on a weekly basis of his progress.
They take all the children on outings and they have an amazing set up with every toy to fulfil all the children’s needs. The garden is well equipped with outdoor toys and they are always adding toys- which is a bonus :D
Laura is very flexible and always accommodates our requirements and will always go out of her way to help at short notice.
I’m so pleased that we have found such an excellent childminder and I would highly recommend them both.

Elena has been our part time babysitter for a few months and she has always been very good at communication from the beginning. She is helpful, dependable and has good knowledge about children. I feel very comfortable having her watch our infant son and I highly recommend her.
Tanya is amazing she goes over and above for all her children. Shes looked after my little boy from around 9 months and it's hard to believe he's starting reception and leaving. Jamie loved going to Tanya's and has learnt so much in doing so. Cannot praise her enough for what she has done for both myself and Jamie over the years I will definitely be back with the 2nd child. (if she has space) definitely the best choice I made for Jamie. It says a lot when your child cry's to go to Tanya's and asks "is it Tanya's day" she is like part of the family and gives the children a home from home feeling when they are there.
Jane has babysat my two children on several occasions, my children are so fond of her and look forward to seeing her. She is professional, kind and friendly and as soon as she arrives gives my children her complete attention. I am very lucky to have found a lovely babysitter who i feel at ease with.

Suzy was fantastic with our 9 month old who had refused a bottle for 6 months, and outwitted previous consultants on the matter. Our baby is now very happily taking the bottle, and as a bonus her sleeping has improved. Suzy’s intuitive, baby led approach made me feel completely comfortable and we are thrilled with the results. I would wholeheartedly and very enthusiastically recommend Suzy to anyone having feeding or sleeping trouble.

Mandy has been a fantastic Childminder for us these past two years. She’s a lovely, generous, kind, encouraging teacher, and we feel so lucky to have got the chance for our daughter to spend so much time with her. We would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a Childminder.
Amy recently babysat my 2 daughters whilst my husband and I went to a wedding.
As we were visiting the area for the wedding she made special arrangements to pop in and meet the kids prior to arriving to babysit.
She immediately was inclusive of my 4 year old, talking with her directly rather than through me; even though she didn't get many answers as my daughter is shy.
I felt really comfortable leaving my children in her care for the afternoon and evening.
I would definitely recommend her.
Eliza has been looking after our (currently 9 month old) twins for the past couple of months, both shared charge and sole charge. The twins really like her and she's a very calm and gentle presence even when one (or both!!) twins are in need of attention! The twins have enjoyed days out with her, and she has been very accommodating working to their/our routine and trying to keep the twins as in sync as possible! I would happily recommend her to anyone looking for a caring nanny for their little one(s).
Tina has been our childminder for over 3 years and could not ask for a better one. Our children love going to Tina's as they are always happy there and well cared for, not only by Tina but by the whole family. Not once have we ever worried about anything with the children being in Tina's care. Tina has made us feel secure, comfortable and made the transistion of children going into child care so smooth. I honestly could not recommend Tina highly enough and would point any parent to Tina for childcare services.
Tina started looking after my eldest son 3 years ago. This was a very daunting time for me as he had only ever been looked after by family members however, Tina made this transition very smooth and stressfree sending me lots of updates while I was at work. After having my second child there was no hesitation. I knew i wanted Tina to look after him. Tina's home is clean and tidy with a multitude of toys to play with and her children are polite, friendly and always offer a helping hand. Tina herself is so welcoming and I know she looks after my two boys as if they are her own. They always have so much fun with Tina, whether it be going to the park or cinema or even playing in the back garden. We are so lucky to have found such an amazing childminder who truely cares about the children in her care.
I have had both my children in with Sarah since they were both little babies. Sara is a fantastic childminder with all the happiness, enthusiasm and patience in the world. Both my girls are treated like part of the family by all Sara’s family. Her husband and her children all welcome my children into the family as much as Sara does. She is passionate and puts the children first in everything she does. I couldn’t think of a better person to leave my children with. Sara keeps me updated during the day of how my children are and sends me photos of them having fun. Both my girls absolutely worship Sara and both love going to her house. Her home really has been transformed and she welcomes children into her home like they are her own.
Nanny I is a warm, kind and very lovely nanny to my two children aged 9 and 12. We are so lucky to have her. She has gone beyond my expectations to build a really good bond with them. She does lots of thoughtful things for them outside the one day per week she is scheduled to work with them. She is always punctual and hasn't missed a scheduled day. I look forward to continuing to work with her and highly recommend her.
Kay and Dan have been looking after my daughter since last November, when she was 9 months old. I am very happy with the care provided. She settles in well to the setting. Dan in particular has a very natural way with young kids and they all seem to take to him quite quickly, so this really helps with the settling in process. Both Kay and Dan are professional, communication is excellent and you always know what is going on. It is very much a home from home environment and my little girl has made a little best mate in Kay an Dan's little girl. They often go on little outings to Aquarium etc. but apart from this they also have quite a nice pattern of daily routine so it works well with the little ones. Above all else and very importantly, I have always felt that my daughter is safe in their care, they are dependable and have all their first aid etc. so the kids are in good hands. Highly recommend esp. for younger children who are going to their first childcare setting.
Shirley has looked after my son and daughter over the past 5/6 years. They were 6 and 8 years old at the time and Shirley provided a loving and welcoming place to return to after school and during the school holidays. Holiday activities were fun and varied. As the children's requirements changed as they grew, Shirley was very in tune and adaptable. I would not hesitate to recommend Shirley for your childcare needs. My children have fond memories of their time spent with her.
Rukhsana and Javed are so is friendly and passionate. It is so nice to see a husband and wife work so well together. Their home is clean and welcoming. They have a lovely way of building an individual bond with each child. Rukhsana and Javed's children are a real credit to them and are great with the children too. My daughter took a while to settle at the beginning (lots of tears) but Rukhsana would always text or call me saying she was absolutely fine and happy! They provide healthy snacks and meals and do a great job of stimulating the children with activities indoor and outdoor. Rukhsana sends pictures to update me on what they are doing. I would not hesitate to recommend Rukhsana and Javed, they are the gold standard in childminding.
Nicky has looked after my son for the past 4 years, collecting him from school and providing that after school care which is a necessity when you work full time. We tried a nursery initially but I just felt like my child was in another school environment. Nicky has provided my son a home from home environment which I'm forever grateful. My son has always enjoyed his time there and has made some lovely friends. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs this level of support. I can also say that the time and effort Nicky puts in by helping the kids to make cards and gifts for their parents at Christmas, Easter, mothers day etc is just lovely, it's such a kind gesture and not one thats expected.
