Below are the latest reviews for Denise. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk.

Denise is a fantastic child minder, she minded my daughter from the age of one until she was 4. Denise has always been reliable, caring and treated Lucy like she was one of her own. On our first visit I could clearly see the areas where my daughter would be playing and also how clean and varied the toys she had on offer.

Denise provided various certificates she has earned in early learning and first aid also which I found reassuring as a first time mum leaving my baby. I know she has since gained further qualifications through the SQA which is brilliant for her and well deserved.

Lucy always came home happy with stories about what she had been doing that day and what Snowy and Buddy had been up to.

I would strongly recommend Denise if you are looking to leave your child in a happy and safe environment.

I would without any hesitation or reservations, whole heartedly recommend Denise as a childminder. Her standards of care go over and above the normal and my daughter cannot wait to go to Denise`s and is bursting with stories when she returns. The look of joy on her face is priceless and the stories continue until bedtime, and start again in the morning!

Denise provides a safe, secure and highly educational environment for the children and is highly professional . Denise`s own children play an active part in the whole childcare experience, and my daughter was made welcome from the very first moment she arrived on the doorstep.

I would highly recommend Denise to care for your children and is a fantastic caring childminder.
