All children's individual needs and requirements are forfilled with exellent standards at all times.
The children In my care are always made to feel safe, comfortable and at Home in a relaxed, cheerful environment.

My 3 bedroom house is clean and pet free, with an exiting Playroom, as an addition to my homely setting.
A garden with slides, water, sand, ride-ons, kitchen and so much more fun equipment and activities for our little ones to enjoy and grow whilst playing.

I provide breakfast, lunch, tea and snacks in between.

We've been using Ashley for one or two days a week since July when my wife returned to work full time.

Ashley is a wonderful lady who is very approachable & friendly but more to the point she has been amazing with our son who always gets excited when I drop him off.

I really couldn't ask for a better child minder than Ashley & would definitely recommend her to any parents In the local area.

Thank you Dan. He really has settled in well. And is an absolute joy to have.

Ashley has been the highlight of my son’s week. She is a caring, friendly and warm childminder that instantly made my son feel completely at home.
Her children love playing with my son and the others who are looked after. Her home is clean and full of toys and Ashley provides many stimulating activities. She is reliable and we couldn’t recommend her more!!

Thank you :)

Ashley has been looking after my two children for the past year and I would highly recommend her. My two children both adore her and always ask me whether it's an 'Ashley Day'. She is very loving and caring towards them and this has always made me feel very comfortable leaving them in her care. They always come out happy, full of things to show and tell me about their day. Ashley provides a range of little activities for them to do, and my two little ones get on very well with her two children, who are equally as lovely as her. Ashley is very easy to chat to and will always do her best to help where she can. I go to work feeling reassured that my children are in safe hands.

Ashley is an experienced childminder who puts children at the heart of everything. We have had Ashley for a year now and from the first day my daughter was in love with her and didn't want to go home! Ashley is very loving and caring; she treats the kids as if they were her own. She engages children in numerous activities and provides them with home cooked meals of their choice. She is very sensitive to how the kids are feeling. She is very trustworthy and reliable. Her own children are lovely and they made great friends with my daughter. Ashley upholds strong values, honesty and integrity. As a mother I couldn't wish for better care for my child. I look forward to having Ashley next year too and would highly recommend Ashley to anyone.

Ashley has looked after my twin boys and now third son since they were 9 months old. She has given them a loving and stimulating home environment. The boys love going to her home.

She has provided good quality care, recognising the individual needs of my sons.

I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone with one or more children looking for a caring thoughtful childminder.
