Zara has been looking after my little boy for couple of years now and I can not praise and recommend her highly enough.
She is an extremely positive, bubbly and smiling person with a very caring personality, professional approach to her role with a can do attitude. She has always provided friendly and structured care for my son and has actually helped him overcome his stutter by being extremely patient and encouraging. My boy completely adores her and there were always hugs in the mornings as well as afternoons. Even though we no longer use Zara's services, my boy still sends her an occasional message on facebook and she is ever so lovely and always replies. Thank you Zara

Sam quite simply gives me complete peace of mind caring for my 18 month old two days per week. I found the process of going back to work after mat leave and arranging childcare quite stressful as handing over your little one to a stranger is not an easy process. More than twelve months on, I have definitely found a gem in Sam. She's completely reliable and trustworthy and is a huge help to me in coordinating my weekly schedule (even if that means collecting earlier and dropping off later some days). She keeps me up to date on Jack's antics during the day which is really comforting when I'm at work. As I don't have family close by, Sam is most definitely my first port of call when I need help. And, above all, Jack can't wait to head off for fun when she comes to collect him. That speaks for itself!! I would highly, highly recommend Sam to any mum.

It eases my mum-guilt to leave my baby girls with Jo. She really loves them and i can tell the girls love being with her too, they're always happy when she comes to pick them up and she always have something planned for them, let it be baby club or picnic in the park. Because she has children of her own, I know she would treat them with the same care as hers and she has huge experience with kids of all ages. We're very happy to have her as our child minder.

Our son has been with Chantal between 2-5 days per week for almost 4 months, and our experience has been extremely positive. Both Chantal and Mike are great with all the children, and put a lot of effort in to food, outings, and fun and educational activities. Highly recommended!

My two-year-old daughter's been with Claire a couple of days a week since September last year and every time I drop H off, I'm thankful that I found Monkey Minders. Claire's gentle, caring and reassuring approach has quickly helped H find the confidence and sense of security to be away from me (something I thought would take a lot longer given how limpet-like she was with me!). Claire is always willing to go the extra mile for the children in her care and for us, the parents. She takes the children out to some great playgroups and has loads of fun with them at home too. She's a gem!

Mel has looked after our son Thomas for 18 months, from the age of 18 Months to 3 years old.
We have been delighted with Thomas' developmental progress & milestones he has achieved since starting with Mel.
Mel provides a home from home environment to learn & play in.
I couldn't recommend Mel highly enough, Thomas is content & happy whilst in her care which in turn ensures I feel confident and assured leaving him whilst I work.

My 2yo daughter has been with Jo since she was 13 months, she loves going to Jo's. Enjoys days out to toddler groups and all the educational activities she does. I feel 100% reassured that my daughter is in safe hands.

My daughter has been going to Lucy for a few months now and has recently started five full days a week. Sofia was only 9 months when she first started and is now a year old. From the very word go, I never had any fear about Sofia being in Lucy's Care. The setting is beautiful, and Lucy provides/organises different activities everyday. Sofia is very forward and confident but since being with Lucy she has developed so much more. I have absolute faith in Lucy and would recommend her at the drop of a hat, to anyone. Her family are lovely too, and Sofia adores her children.

Jana is friendly and very caring. Our son loves her house which is filled with various toys and gadgets. He gets nutritional foods and I can count on her for additional out of hours childcare. Jana undergoes more than I expect from a child minder, cards for mother and Father's Day which shows her thoughtfulness. I can easily communicate with her and I always know what my child has been up to, what's he's eaten and I get a summary of his behaviour. I intend to send my younguest son to her soon. Thank you for saving us!
