My daughter stared her journey with Alison when she was 1Y8M. She loves Alison a lot! Her place is very clean, taught my daughter a lot about numbers, colours and shapes. She developed a lot of different skills with Alison. She enjoyed the time with Molly. We have to move from her as we have to relocate. Since we left, my daughter missed Alison so much. She always say: I want to go to Alison!

Our family really appreciate her support, especially to me. As a mother, I have to work and worry about my little one’s development. But she totally cover mother’s job.

Thank you so much for the lovely review and I wish you all the best for the future!

Alison is a wonderful childminder, who I would thoroughly recommend to any parents.

My wife and I were first time parents, and understandingly, we were really nervous when we had to look for childcare for our baby son, who was just 9 months at the time. The fact that this happened with lots of uncertainties around Covid going on at the same time didn't help at all.

However, we were really lucky when we found Alison's childminder service. The original communication, which was really quick and clear, helped to reassure us somewhat. Then our son started childcare, and the settling period wasn't too bad even though he had strong stranger anxiety before that, thanks to Alison's expertise on how to handle the situation.

The 10 months when our child was under Alison's care was great as well: He had lots of activities (nursery rhymes, playgroup, dancing group, visiting parks etc...), and he made lots of friends with many kids at the childminder. I believe the whole group feels like a family to my son, with a few older brothers and sisters who were always really gentle with him. Alison also kept a consistent communication channel with us, so we could follow most of the activities he had or any issues he encountered (thankfully there weren't many).

Oh, and our son loves Molly the dog as well!

Overall, we (and we believe our son as well) really enjoyed the experience at Alison's place. At 19 months now, we believe our son has learnt a lot of things, and now enjoys interacting with other people a lot more and starts talking a lot. Unfortunately, due to personal circumstances, we have to travel away for an extended amount of time, and we can't send our son to Alison's place anymore. Our whole family will miss Alison & her childcare, and we really hope that we can come back at some point.

Alison is an amazing person - reliable, friendly and great with kids. She has looked after my little boy for the past 4 months and he always had a great time with her. She does a lot of activities too - baby/toddler groups, picnic in the park etc. Unfortunately, we are leaving Bromley, so we need to look for a new childminder. I would sincerely recommend her, she is great!
