We are very pleased with Sharon and our 3 year old daughter loves going there and spend the Saturdays with her. She love to go there and always talk about Sharon. Sharon has lots of experience and provides first class childcare. They spend time playing outdoors and always do some crafts and drawing and creative play.
We can highly recommend Sharon if you are looking for childcare in the area.
Thank you Sharon.

Being a first time mam I was very anxious about finding childcare that would meet my high standards for my baby. As soon as I met Sharon I felt at ease and she instantly warmed to my little girl. Elsie has been going to Sharon for 6 months now and she absolutely loves it. She beams as soon as she sees Sharon on a morning. Sharon takes Elsie to a playgroup on a morning and then she is provided with encouraging activities in Sharon’s home on an afternoon. Sharon provides care for Elsie 2.5 days a week and is very accommodating if I need to change days at work. Food is provided for Elsie and it is always good, hearty meals with meat and vegetables. She also provides healthy snacks throughout the day.
I’d be lost without Sharon. I am able to go to work feeling confident that Elsie is in the best care.

Sharon you are amazing!

We used Sharon for our little boy for a year, from being 18 months to 2 and a half years. For the year that N has been with her, he has developed socially and has gained confidence. Sharon has helped him learn letters and numbers, as well as worked along side us with potty training which was fab. He has really enjoyed his playgroup sessions and park trips with Sharon and he arrives happily in the morning, ready to start the day.
There's lots of choice for activities and Sharon let's them get creative with drawing, crafts and dough as well.
He's had a lovely time with Sharon and we are happy we found her to take care of him when we needed it.

Thank you from all of us.

Sharon is the first childminder I've ever used with any of my 3 children. I returned to the workplace when my son was 18 months and chose Sharon to take care of him.

She has always explained everything clearly and documents my son's day in a daily diary which I can read at pick up time.

He is taken to local playgroups with Sharon and has the pick of many toys and resources within her home.

Sharon works along side me to keep my son's routine with nap times etc which is great consistency for him.

She had always been welcoming and cheerful and sets my mind at ease on the days where my son had been a little poorly or clingy to me.

I'm glad we chose Sharon to help us, she has made our first non school childcare experience an easy transition.

what a brilliant childminder sharon is. my daughter absolutely loves going to her house on a Saturday and doesn't want to leave when I go to pick her up. A few times work has changed my shift pattern or what days im working and Sharon has always been accommodating.

Sharon encourages creative and messy play and she really does do what ever the children ask of her. From the day we met Sharon she made us feel very welcome and I cant thank her enough for that as its made the decision easy for who I left my daughter with.

Thank you Sharon x
