I was so worries about leaving my little girl when I went back to work just after her 1st birthday. I had looked at nurseries and they just didn't seem the right fit for her. She is a sensitive soul and she would be have been lost in that environment. So I looked at child minders, although they seemed better I was finding them too home based and didn't think she would get enough from it. With Debbie and Gary you get the best of both worlds, they are more like a small private nursery. The play room and the garden are such a good size without being overwhelming and they have the homely feel of a childminder. Debbie and Gary are very caring and responsive and have years of childcare experience so I find myself asking them for advice. I am sure my little girl eats a more varied diet there as they offer home made and cooked food! Debbie and Gary are also very flexible and understanding.
I guess the best thing I can say is that my daughter loves going! she settled in so quickly and now comes home full of stories of the fun day she has had.

My daughter has been going to Tiny Terrors since she was 5.5months old. As first time parents, and with her so young we were obviously very nervous but we knew very quickly that we had made the right choice. We would get regular photos and messages which reassured us that she had settled well. Debbie and Gary are amazing with our daughter, and she loves going there (she's now 19.months old) They have a wonderful set up, with lots of toys and activities and space; they have so much more than what you might expect from a childminder. They are extremely flexible which has been a life saver as my husband works shifts so we needed childcare to fit around that. Food and snacks are included (for children over 1) which is an added bonus. We would 110% recommend them :-)

My now 2.5 year old son has been going to Tiny Terrors since he was 9 months old and he absolutely loves it there. On the days he's at Tiny Terrors he's literally beaming with excitement on the way there, he always runs straight in without even a second glance back at me and then when he's back home he raves about Debbie and Gary right up until the time he nods off.
Going back to work so soon after having my first child was really hard but I'm so confident that my children are in the best hands. My youngest son will be going to Tiny Terrors in the new year too and I just know he's going to be so well looked after and he too will love it as much as his big brother does.

Debbie and Gary have been invaluable to us, they've dealt with sudden illnesses in a way that only a parent would, they have helped me to instil good manners in Louis, they always seem to know they best way to deal with him when he's misbehaving, they don't make me feel horrendously guilty when my trains been delayed and I've arrived 2 minutes late to pick the boys up and they have always been more than accommodating especially to our recent change in circumstances.

Can't recommend Tiny Terrors highly enough. I hope they never stop what they do!!

We have two girls that have been going to Debbie and Gary's since July 2016. When the girls started they were 9 months and 2 1/2 years. They had never been left with anyone other than family and so I was very worried. Our youngest was also a bad napper and so I worried she would just get over tired and cry. However, I need not have worried the girls love it their and after the first few days they went in happily and Ellie naps happily in a cot (she is even better at home now).
There is a huge range of toys at the setting and plenty of spaces for the girls to run wild which they love. The also adore Debbie and Gary and talk about them often which is fantastic as it makes having to go to work much easier knowning the girls are happy.
I also like the fact that Debbie and Gary install good manners in the girls, they eat meals altogether at the table and don't get down until everyone has finished.
I work shifts and these can change very last minute. Debbie and Gary have always been very accomodating of this.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Debbie and Gary to any one and hope that my girls will be with them until they are old enough to not need childcare.

My son Jesse went to Debbie and Gary's for a week while his usual childminder was on holiday. I was very impressed with the amount and range of toys that they have. The playroom is large and colourful with so much to see and do (better than some nurseries I've seen!). Outside they have an astroturf lawn (so no muddy kids!) and lots of Little Tike vehicles, swings and slides. They also have little tables and chairs and all sit together for meals once big enough. The other kids there all seemed happy roaming around and although Jesse was upset at drop-off the first few days (he's only 13 months) he clearly enjoyed himself...by the last day he wasn't even desperate to come over to me when I picked him up. He was happy playing in the garden. I'd be happy to leave Jesse with Debbie and Gary in the future.
