Hi Maria Del Sette, we miss you! We were just saying how Teresa's was the best place for both our boys and it was our favourite of all their childcare. They are doing really well in Australia, it's so beautiful here. Wishing you and your family well xxx

Love this childminder!

Teresa and her family have made my sons' childhood development fun, easygoing, and comfortable. Both are growing and learning well with her and her staff. Teresa is the best thing that could have happened to our family.

This lady really does care about her work, she welcomes the children, offers them 100% love and devotion. Certainly would recommend her to anyone.

Teresa home is full of love, she very caring, offers the children so many activities and personal care. My son has achieved so much in her care and his confidence has grown. Teresa is a God send to us both. Tags# Amazing 5 stars childcare ladybirdclub Kate

INSPECTION BY OFSTED
Inspection report: Clark, Teresa Frances, 16 March 2016 3 of 5
Inspection findings
Effectiveness of the leadership and management is good
The childminder uses her childcare qualification well, sharing the skills she has learned
and offering her assistant practical supervision. Arrangements for safeguarding are
effective. The childminder ensures that both she and her assistant are fully aware of the
possible signs that would raise concerns about children's welfare and know the process for
reporting these. The childminder carefully assesses outings and ensures that children are
always supervised. She makes sure that Ofsted is informed of any changes that may affect
her work, further promoting children's welfare. The childminder shares information with
other childcare providers so that children's learning is not interrupted as they move
between settings. The childminder has developed the ongoing evaluation of her practice
so that she makes relevant changes that improve the provision for children.
Quality of teaching, learning and assessment is good
The childminder plans activities well so that these support children's learning. For
example, children explore a tray of cereal. They use different implements to scoop and
pour the cereal. They describe the texture and use weighing scales. Activities such as
these encourage children to explore and support them in developing their language and
mathematical skills. The childminder interacts well with children and helps them to extend
their play. For example, children explore toy farm animals and the childminder offers them
a construction set. They work out how to build walls to make fields and farm buildings.
The childminder uses children's interests as a way of building on their learning. Children's
fascination with construction vehicles is extended as they play with toy vehicles, read
associated books and visit a farm to look at other vehicles.
Personal development, behaviour and welfare are good
The childminder establishes good partnerships with parents and gains a thorough
understanding of each child's needs. She shares this information with her assistant so that
children feel secure and comfortable with each of the adults. Practical activities, such as a
visit to the dentist, help children understand how to keep their bodies healthy. Children
enjoy a variety of activities that promotes their physical development. For example, they
participate in action rhymes and visit the local park. The childminder works sensitively with
each child. She builds their confidence and self-esteem so that they are emotionally secure
in readiness for starting school. For example, she quickly notes children's efforts and
praises these. She also helps them to recognise their achievements, such as learning to fit
construction blocks together.
Outcomes for children are good
All children are making good progress. They are keen to learn and show a positive
response to challenges or new experiences. They are gaining the essential skills that
support their ability to learn and prepare them for the move to school. They enjoy their
daily interactions with the childminder and other children, and learn to work amicably
together.

All new parents will be given a welcome pack filled with goodies and documentation

Our daughter has been going to Teresa for almost two months now and we are extremely delighted with our decision.

Teresa has been so flexible especially with my other half who works shifts.

Our daughter enjoys her time with Teresa everyday she looks forward to seeing her and the other children.

Teresa looks after my 2yr old, She looks forward to her time there and talks about Teresa when she comes home, my daughter gets first anxiety when I leave her but Teresa puts me totally at ease by letting me know that she has started playing and it's only a momentary thing, I would highly recommend The Ladybird club, and the new play area is fab for the kids, Millie comes home every day with her artwork, paintings and things they have cooked, you get way more than you would expect from a childminder like weekly take home books for you to share with your child, Teresa really cares, and I am very happy with this service :)

Response by Teresa Clark speed on 05/01/2016:

Thank you very much, your daughters have been a pleasure to care for xxx

Teresa looked after my boys from infancy until they were toddlers for over one year. While we were in London, she was my go-to for anything child-related. She is kind, caring, emotionally intelligent and has a keen interest in learning and teaching the children with excitement. I would trust Teresa with my children for the rest of their childhood had we not moved away to Australia.

If you choose Teresa you are certainly in great hands.

Response by Teresa Clark speed on 21/09/2015:

aww, Michelle, really miss you guys. Thank you very much for a positive review. We enjoyed having your boys and by the facebook photos. they are growing fast. Love to you all xxx

My little one has been with Teresa for a few months now and he is so happy and settled, right from the start.
He is learning loads, playing loads and getting stuck into all the activities.
Teresa has great principles and educates the children in fun ways, one of the main reasons I chose her is that I felt she would be giving my child the dedication, affection and interaction to aid his development, that I would not be able to while having to go back to work.
She has made it a super smooth process and I can highly recommend her!
Thanks Teresa!

The Children love Teresa to bits. They learn new things everyday and they can't wait to go to her every morning. Teresa is very professional, kind, reliable and very caring. She's also a great communicator. I know my children are safe in the care of Teresa. I would recommend any parent to take their children to Teresa. I am a happy Parent and my Children are happy.
