I researched carefully to find the right mixture of homely care with professional standards.
Our twins are so happy and stimulated but cared for in a very safe and loving atmosphere.

I have four children... I all of them have been in childcare /nursery settings from being small... Due to my work and study commitments.. So i have been to a load of different people and nursery's over the years... But happy little sunbeams nursery is by far the best i have used... Their care and compassion and welcoming nature towards my youngest son is amazing he joined sunbeams in october of last year to be honest it feels like hes always been there... Your always greeted with a smiling face... Its always smells amazing either with smell of cleanliness or home cooked food for the children... My klayton is very shy little boy but once he is comfortable with his surroundings he come out his shell... The girls took this in board when klay joined them and they told me every day how he was opening up further and further.. Within a couple of weeks he was himself... He loves sunbeams and all the girls who look after him... I love how they know what he likes without me telling them... They have taken the time to work out this and build a relationship with him... Sunbeams are very flexible with my needs... And if i need something they are always happy to help me.. They always have amazing subjects and things going on to do with special dates of c the year.. Klays bday is october he had been there a matter of weeks and they made him bday card with what he loved at that time
(baby shark 🦈)
In jan this year my other son started after school he absolutely loves it i wants to more than does...
I want to thank alison and everyone for the hard work and support you have given me and klay and sonny since we joined you last year...

Thank you for your wonderful review, I am so happy that you're happy. We love to care for your children and have had lot's of fun along the way. Love and best wishes from Allison and the team xxx

Savannah has been coming to happy little sunbeams for 2 years now she loves coming and has come on leaps and bounds. I am always amazed by how much she gets to do while there from adventures in the park water play painting messy play dressing up sing and sign they are always having so much fun. She know her alphabet numbers and can sing the phonics songs even I've learnt the actions. Allison becky and all the girls are amazing and I couldn't be happier with everything they do

My son loves everyday at nursery and has come on leaps and bounds since starting!
Every staff member knows who he is and they are always so polite. I'm always well informed of how his day has been an love reading his diary each day!
He has formed strong bonds with the staff and his face lights up which is really comforting for me when I leave him each day.
My son has numerous food allergies and happy little sunbeams are fantastic with dealing with this!
Lovely place.. highly recommended like a home from home!

Hello,
Anybody looking for a childminder for their little ones this is the place to take them. Alison and her team are all amazing! My daughter has loved her time with happy sunbeams, particularly growing her own sunflower, crafting, painting etc. As a parent I can't believe how much she has come on and developed in her time with these girls. I feel that Alison goes the extra mile with these children and if I'm honest I didn't realise how much pre nursery education Mary would receive! She sings all the jolly phonics and alphabet and signs too! But most importantly for me Alison is a mother herself so she just gets it! When your leaving the most precious thing in the world with someone it's so good to know that they are looking after your child just as you would yourself.
I love them all and rate everything at Happy sunbeams 5 star

Thank you so much Jody, I am over the moon with the review. It was a pleasure caring for your gorgeous girl xxx

My little girl has been with Allison and the girls, a little over 7 months and has come on leaps and bounds ever since. Every morning she's crys to go which to me proves how amazing Allison and her setting is. Allison and the girls are amazing and the activities she provides are great too, everyday I pick up A I'm amazed how much she's learnt and done that day. Overall the environment Allison has created is a loving and nurturing one, her and the girls are always there to help and support you and your child and Allison always goes out of her way to help you wherever or however you need it. Leaving your child is always hard as Is the worry that's comes with it but Allison is always there to help and reassure you that your child is happy through out the day. I have no regrets choosing Allison and the girls, they are wonderful and caring people and A loves and adores them all so very much. I would highly recommend Allison and would like to thank her and girls everything they've done for my daughter, she really is a credit to her profession and a wonderful caring person and you wouldn't find a better person anywhere to care for your child .

Thank you for your wonderful review and we love caring for A, she is a total sweetheart and we love having her around.

I strive to ensure that the children are happy and content in my care and that they learn and develop in line with EYFS. My staff are fully trained by me and they understand how important it is to parents that their child's welfare and wellbeing is paramount over everything.

We all love doing what we do and so glad that you are happy with our care.

Lots of love

My little boy has been going to happy little sunbeams for over 2 years now and words cant describe how much we both love alison and her team and how lucky we are to have found someone so lovely and caring. When i started back to work after having noah, who is my only child, i was apprehensive like any mother but alison soon put my mind at rest. I trust both her and her team implicitly with all my sons needs and know that while im at work there is no one better or no place safer for him to be. I am always astonished by how much they do with the children, i.e. groups, soft play, long walks, baking etc and safely feel that noah is never bored when he is with them. Alison and her team adhere to the eyfs framework and being a qualified teacher myself i can appreciate how much work they put into each child they have in their care. The communication is excellent and whatever i am doing at home with noah alison compliments that within the setting, whether that is behaviour or potty training etc. I honestly feel like alison is one of the family who has not only been there for noah but there for me whenever ive needed her. You could not find a better or safer place for your child to be!! I would never have noah go anywhere else

Well Claire, I have just had an emotional moment!. I am so grateful to you for being so kind and appreciative of both my staff and I. I have cared for your son for over 2 years but I can honestly say I have enjoyed every moment of this time I have spent with him. He has come on so much and it has been wonderful for me to have been part of making the transition to school nursery with you both and meeting his lovely teacher too. I appreciate how lovely you always are with all of us including my own children and Mark my husband and you always give them time. I cannot thank you enough over the time I have known you for the beautiful, thoughtful gifts you have brought to the setting for the staff and I, I always place them in pride of place and look at them when I have a bad day to reassure me that I am doing the best I can for the children I care for. I look forward to a wonderful future with you and your son. Lots of love from Allison, family and staff xxxx

My little girl has been with Allison and her staff for just over 5 months but it feels like she's been there from the start.
I cannot praise this setting enough, it is like a second home to my girl. They are an incredibly caring,understanding and helpful team. Allison sets a high standard when it come to the children's learning.
Ava has gained so much in such a short time. she is so happy there, she seems to come home with something new she has learned each day.
The activities and play dates the kids have daily are fantastic, the big smiles and giggles say it all.
Allison is there for the parents aswell as the children. I really couldn't ask for anything better for my child, it's like leaving Ava with a member of my family.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. It has been a wonderful experience for us all to care for such a lovely, funny little girl wiho wants to learn, develop and interact with whatever topic we do.

You and your family have appreciated us from the start and that means so much, you lovely comments when she goes home and the fact that you tell us she mentions us at home just brightens up our day.

Thank you and lots of love xxxx

Alli, family and staff

Happy little sunbeams is the first childminder I have had dealings with and each me never of the team is superb. Leaving my little boy to go back to work was the hardest thing I've ever had to do but Allison and her girls made this so much more easier. They have took Charlie on like one of their own and he is so happy there in fact after being there only 3 days he was happy and smiley when leaving me!

I couldn't reccomend happy little sunbeams any more. They are fantastic and I trust them 100% with Charlie

Thank you Jodie for such a lovely review. We all love your son, he is a pleasure to care for and we are extremely pleased that you have chosen us to care for him. It is lovely when we receive feedback because it makes us feel so valued. Thank you Allison, Leena and Fiona xxx

My son has been with ally for well over a year now and started when he was 10 months old. As a prem baby ally helped and understood his needs. She is brilliant at making sure he gets his medicine and is supportive towards me. Kathleen and fiona are brilliant as well so friendly they are more like family then childminders nothing is ever to much trouble. I dont even worry about what he is doing as i know he is in safe hands. Im very grateful as i am loving the little boy he is growing up to be from the help of ally and the girls. Somedays he doesnt want to come home as he has had that much fun. The bond they all have is amazing and allys family are brilliant as well. Definitly the best childminder around especially if you want a warm friendly environment for your child. Also the amount of work you put in planning days and activities is brilliant. Thankyou so much for everything! Xxxxx

I have just had a cry! and cannot thank you enough for the lovely words in your review. From the day I started minding your baby I could not believe how lucky I was to be trusted with such a fragile baby. The love that you have for your son is unbelievable and we all respect you very much. He has the best mother in the world and you have both become part of our family. I look back at how small he was and how now he has developed into a strong 2 year old with lots of affection, fun, giggles and intelligence, he is definitely on a wonderful journey in his life. The strength and independence he has gained since he started at the setting and obvious stability he has at home with you. You ought to be very proud of yourself Vicky you make my job so worthwhile. Lots of Love from Alli, Leena, Fiona and all of my familly xxxx
