To Whom It May Concern

Dear Sir/Madam

Teresa Speed has been looking after my son (now 7 years old) nearly 2 years. When I first met her, I felt that she was the right person for my son and he liked her instantly. As a parent with a child on the autistic spectrum (mild), I was very apprehensive that she would have reservations. Teresa managed to reassure me that she would be happy to take Him on and would work with me to provide the care he needed.
I can say that Teresa is a caring person and always puts the needs of the children first. I can confidently say this because; my son is always disappointed whenever he is booked to stay with Teresa and is unable to attend due to alternative arrangements.
I have also developed a good relationship with Teresa over the period of time and understand that she will go a mile to ensure that He is happy, for example on the days that the weather permits, she will ensure that she has organised activities for the children outdoors. She helps out my son with his reading and other learning activities and is always patient with him.
I would recommend Teresa as a suitable carer for young children. Teresa is organised, emotionally intelligent and diligent when delivering care to the children in her care.


My daughter has been with Teresa for nearly a year now and she is truly amazing! My daughter is always so happy to see her and gives her the biggest cuddle in the morning. Teresa is always so welcoming and happy to see my daughter. My daughter is always coming home with craft, cooking and I am sent pictures throughout the day of my daughter and her adventures. I couldnt recommend her enough, she's one in a million.

Teresa will always go that extra mile and that's why we love her. If you have any questions please do ask.

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!

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

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 :)

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!
