Hi I have lived in South Ockendon for 44 years and married to my long suffering husband Edward for 36 years we have 2 children and have 5 grandchildren. Edward is still a big kid at heart, his garden den soon became the play house and renamed "Pops Cabin"
My daughter Victoria and daughter in law Jayne who both have children of thre own are my assistants and will be fully registered in theer own right as a child minders very soon, which is great. Everyone at Cherished are first aid trained and DB'S checked.
Pat, fun raised for the very first Shaw Start Nursery, for preschool children to have fun in. Our project started in a small spare classroom at Shaw's infants school, many local business's sponsored us, and this enabled us to kit the class room out with books, toys, and even a boat! Shaw start grew and moved to a bigger unit at the Ockendon Centre and is now based in a new purpose built building next to Shaw school. The local council even took on the name of Shaw Start as their banner for Thurrock for all government run nurseries.

Pat and her family have been amazing with our son. I was so worried having to leave him and go back to work, but they made the transition so easy. I cannot praise Pat and her team enough. I know when I leave my son with them, I don’t have to worry, he in in good hands.
Our son really enjoys going here. I would recommend this to anyone looking for safe and friendly environment for their children. Always easy to communicate with the staff and they are always ready to help. Very pleased with the work they do so far.
Nanny Pat and the team looked after my little boy, Lloyd, for 2 years. They took wonderful care of him and he absolutely loved going every day. He learnt so much and the activities offered are amazing. The kids love the garden and the cabin and they all have great manners and play together and share. They are a credit to Pat. I have always received great advice and communication and you can always rely on them to be flexible and understanding. If you are looking for a loving, homely environment for your little one, you will not find any better. We only left as we were moving away from the area, I wish we could have moved everyone with us!
Finding a responsible and committed child minder for my son was very daunting but once a I met Pat and her team and disussed my needs.I realise instantly that my son has found a second home. Pat is not only a "mother" to the children but the parents as well.
I would highly recommend her team to any parent because of the genuine love, care and support exhibited by them towards my son.
Excellent care of my 7 month old, Nanny Pat and family make sure he is well looked after and entertained, he is always smiling when he is here and doesn't mind at all when I go off to work. Really good communication about how he is and what he's doing through the day. They are very experienced and give lots of good advice. They are also very flexible about hours and holidays. So glad I found them!
Kids are very happy and took no time at all to settle in, would recommend to working familys , very supportive after school child minding service.
