Chantelle has been babysitting for us since summer 2019 and she is absolutely great.
Our little boy adores her and her boyfriend and we have been able to enjoy ourselves without a worry. She is always on time and been available with a short notice as well. And always replies quickly. We couldn't hope for a better babysitter
Courtney started looking after my son when I was pregnant with my second baby and she was an absolute life saver. Within short notice she visited the house and we had a play session to see how things would go with my 1 year old. She was so friendly and warming. My son instantly bonded with her and loved playing with Courtney's little boy too. She regularly took him to stay and play groups, trips out, and did crafts with him too. I felt confident leaving my son with her knowing he would be safe and well looked after. I can't reccomend courtney enough, she is a fantastic childminder.
Ciara has been our son's nanny for 1.5 years since he was 3. We have been absolutely delighted with the level of engagement & natural charisma she exudes as a carer. Suffice to say she's one of the nicest people we've met & we do rate her as an extended member of our family - she will be missed!

Debbie and Paul looked after my 3 boys for around 2.5 years - my older 2 before school and my youngest 2 full days a week from 11 months before moving to a nursery setting at school, aged 3.5. They were always friendly and approachable and took great care of the boys - when the youngest went through a stage of separation anxiety, they sourced some of his favourite toys to make the morning transition easier. You can tell they're experienced parents themselves and were really helpful when my elder son started to display additional needs. I'd seen Debbie & Paul at school over the years and knew from watching them (before I was looking for a childminder myself) that they'd be my first choice if a new baby came along. Their home is cosy and welcoming and had a great 'feeling'. Daily diaries and photos were lovely to receive every evening. I knew I'd found the right place for my youngest from the first visit, which made the return to work so much easier.
My son absolutely adores Sam is so happy in her care. She gives all the attention and support he needs and since moving here has developed so much. She engages the children with daily activities and fun. Provides healthy meals (that I swear only Sam can get him to eat) and establishes a great routine too. I know my son is happy and in the best care here. My only wish is that I had found Sam sooner! We've had 3 previous childminders due to moving house and other circumstances and Sam is by far the BEST we've found. Can not rate highly enough!
Since removing my daughter from this child minder, I have found out a few things, she was late picking my daughter up from school on many occasions and didn’t feel I needed to know this! I’ve asked for copies of my invoices that I have paid to her, and she is ignoring me, which I need to send to the council to prove that I paid for my daughter to go here! Very un professional, not once was my daughter taken out like keron promised she would do, as it also states on her profile! Few other mums have mentioned they have taken their children out for exactly the same reason!! A lot of money to pay to sit in an house all day!!

Paula has minded both my daughters a few times now and they absolutely love her, they talk about her none stop and tell me how much fun they had. She plays games with them and they have lots of fun with her. She made me feel completely at ease and relaxed leaving my girls with her. I have already booked her for other dates in the future and will continue to. Thank you Paula, we think you are amazing x x
For anyone looking for a childminder who is totally devoted to the happiness of your child I 100% recommend Tanya. My 2 boys absolutely adore her and love going to spend the day. They see it as going to spend the day with a family member. But as much as they enjoy their time there they are provided with numerous learning opportunities and there is a real emphasis on their development! Tanya keeps a fantastic Early learning years folder to outline every step of their development . Another thing that you will rarely get with Childminder’s is the communication that Tanya offers . Every evening after the days childcare Tanya provides numerous photos of the children’s day which gives you compete confidence that the children are so happy all day long. She also takes them outdoors regularly including trips to places such as Knowsley Safari Park, which my boys love!
We knew from the first meeting with Natalie and her family that we didn't need to look any further for childcare. Their home is such a lovely, relaxed and welcoming setting and we felt that our daughter would be very well cared for instantly, she has been looked after by Natalie since she was 9 months old. She absolutely loves her time with Natalie, her family and the other children and is thriving because of her experiences. They spend a lot of time outdoors, which is very important to us, walking the dogs and going to the park and socialising with other children. My daughter loves showing off her creations and themed arts and crafts when I collect her. I get regular updates and photos during the day. She is very flexible and helpful when I have needed additional days cover. I would highly recommend Natalie to anyone.
I found Lucia after my previous childminder went back to Spain. My daughter went to Lucia's for about two years and she absolutely loved it! She still asks when am I going back to Lucia's?'
Lucia has built a strong nurturing team with her lovely two assistants Shauna and Anna. They are so professional and lovely, the children have a great time when they're there and they also learn lots! I can't recommend Lucia enough, she is a very warm, thoughtful and professional person. Anyone would be lucky to have their children looked after by her and by her assistants.
Miss you guys!
Our 4 month old son spent one day a week with Maria for a couple of months. I was surprised he settled so well with her being so young, and since he is an only child I particularly liked that he got to experience playing with Maria's children. Maria was serious and upfront about contracts, money, responsibilities etc., so it did feel like a mini nursery.
We are sad to have left Dawn and Paul after using them for 6 years to care for both our children. They have consistently provided loving, quality care and both our girls were very happy to be cared for by them. Their experiences there both in and outside the home have enriched them and made the transition to school easy.
We would, and have, recommended them to anyone in the area looking for childcare.
Steph took fabulous care of my children for a number of years from 10 months old to the point they started School. I couldn't recommend her highly enough.
She was fully engaged with the children and provided daily feedback on activities so I knew what they had been up to.
She was very engaged in their development, particularly around their reading and writing, through play and lost of arts & crafts.
She also introduced them to the Welsh language and they can speak more Welsh than I can already!
She is totally trustworthy and reliable and the children love her which is the highest endorsement you can get I think!
You wont go wrong in trusting the care of your children with her.
Our daughter was with Rebecca from 10 months old, and really put me at ease leaving my baby so young. Our daughter was treated like part of the family, and thrived in Rebecca’s home environment. Every day was filled with educational activities, nutritious home cooked food and trips within the local area. There were lovely messages at the end of every day on the app, and photos of all the things they got up to.
We couldn’t thank Rebecca enough for how well she looked after our daughter.
Dominika only worked for us for a short while as our circumstances changed. During the time that she did work for us she was immeasurably kind to the children, she made special mixtures for them when they were sick and is generally a lovely natured girl. She was good with the children and our dog and I would have no qualms at all in leaving my children in her care.
Cara has worked for us since August - I am stopping work as I want to be at home. She has been absolutely fantastic, our kids love her, she walks our dog and looks after our pets. She is so kind and caring. It will be such a shame to lose her - I hope she finds a wonderful family to work with.
