I have been using Lil Poppins for a couple of months now. She has minded my two lively boys aged 6 and 8 for occasional after school care and for full day care for a large proportion of the school summer holidays.
My boys loved Lesley from the first time we went to visit the setting. She has a lovely nature and a great way of making the children feel comfortable and at ease from the offset. My boys had been unhappy at the holiday club that I have used in the past, but this summer, I can honestly say they have enjoyed every day they have spent in Lil Poppins care. She has provided constant entertainment, with activities and trips out almost every day, all at her own expense. They have learned new things, been kept very active and made new friends.
They have been provided with proper meals that are sufficient to fill them rather than snack type teas that require topping up when they arrive home.
Lil Poppins is very flexible and has allowed me to add days at short notice or remove days of childcare that have been booked for some time without penalty.
Lil often asks if I think the children are happy and if there is anything I would like to change in order to improve their time with her. I have had nothing to add to the great job she is doing at present and have every intention of continuing to use her for my childcare requirements in the future.
I would happily recommend this child minder to any of my friends or family.
Although I have a main childminder I always look to Lesley as my back up childminder. Lesley is kind, caring and very flexible which is great when help is needed at short notice.
My daughter loves playing at her house and when she is there I know she is well looked after.
I highly recommend Lesley as a childminder.
my little boy has been going to lesleys for 8 months now, and has settled in brilliantly. lesley makes sure that the children are occupied throughout the day and often takes them outdoors and to play groups to interact with other children. i was worried about leaving him at first, as i was scared i would feel i was missing out on his development, but on a daily basis i receive drawings and things that he has made during the day, along with photographs of him, this way i feel i am involved. my little boy loves going to lesleys and i wouldn't have any other childminder for him other than her now. All the children that go to lesleys are always comfortable and seem very at home when i go round, and since being at lesleys my son has come on leaps and bounds, i can guarantee that he says a new word almost everyday and he also enjoys being around other children now, which i think is very important for when he goes to full-time school. overall, i think lesley is amazing with children, and can leave my child and without a doubt know that he is receiving the best care and attention possible.
My little girl started at Lesleys when she was just 9 weeks old. Shes now 6 and still loves going to Lesleys house. Lesley supported me throughout my studies enableing me to get all the Qualifications I needed to make a better life for myself and my daughter. As a Teenage mum I was worried about leaving my little girl from such an early age but Lesley has cared for her in such a special way I neednt have worried. Throughout the day Lesley always sends me pictures and Txts so I can see my little girl haveing fun. All the parents whose children are cared for by Lesley would agree with me when I say the care your child recieves here is fantasic. Lesleys home is like a second home to my llittle one and I know I can leave her safe and sound in Lesleys care.
If you are looking for a Childminder for your Child in a safe secure and fun home from home setting then look no further than Lil Poppins. Im glad I found her.
Lesley has been caring for my little girl since she was eight weeks old, she is now almost 4, over the years she has built a lovely relationship with Lesley and can't wait to go to her house everyweek. Lesley is everything any parent wants in a childminder, she's reliable, flexible, kind and caring whilst still professional. Her house is very homely, and has a large variety of toys and equipment for the children. Lesley is great at entertaining the children and likes to keep them busy with fun activities and trips, they are sure to never get bored . I would certainly recommend Lesley to anyone looking for a good childminder and peace of mind. I really wouldn't take my child anywhere else
