Lynne looked after my 1 year old daughter for a period of 3 months when I returned to work after maternity.

My daughter settled nicely with Lynne, who encouraged and helped her settle quickly.

Lynne has a nice routine each day, ensuring the children are stimulated by doing different activities and mingling with other children at toddler groups.

We regularly received photos and updates on my daughter daily, which helped greatly during her settling in period.

My daughter was happy and content at drop off.

Unfortunately due to work commitments I required a childminder closer to home, therefore this was only a short contract.

My son was with Lynne for a short period of 5 weeks and he really enjoyed his time at Lynne's setup. He was settled with her from Day1 and enjoyed all the activities that Lynne took him for. Lynne provided a very homely environment and had organised different activities for each day. He made great progress in a very short span of time he was there. When he started he had very little understanding of English but Lynne helped him settle quickly and get into a routine like other kids under her care. Lynne also agreed to drop him back home every evening as I couldn't drive.

We had to sadly discontinue due to transport issues, bad traffic impacting drops / pick up times back and forth. I would definitely recommend Lynne to any parent looking for childcare.

Both my children have been with Lynne since they were babies and we could not have had them in a better environment for getting ready for school and to help us nurture them into well-rounded children. My daughter loved the crafts at Lynne's house and my son loved all the outdoor adventures. One activity they both enjoyed was visiting Messy Church - what a fab place to go to for all the lovely people and great activities. This was a safe environment for my children. Lynne has very set rules and as parents we know the children are looked after well. We loved the emails home with photos and the photo books we got when they moved up to school age will be treasured for years to come. Thank you Lynne and thank you to your family for having the Coleman two.

Lynne is extremely well organised and arranges many activities at home and playgroups, parks etc.

My daughter was always happy & smiley when I picked her up.

Lynne sent texts to let me know my daughter was settled & what they were doing which was great & very reassuring.

I would not hesitate in recommending Lynne.

We were so lucky to have found Lynne when our normal childcarer unexpectedly became unavailable. Lynne was so accommodating, taking our 3 year old the next day and then our 6 year old as well when he went on school holidays. Both children settled really well and on the first 2 mornings when our 3 year old had a bit of a wobble, Lynne was great, sending texts to let us know he was happy and settled just moments after we left. Thank you Lynne for being so accommodating and offering such a wonderful setting to the boys!
