Bec is an excellent childminder, she has been looking after my son for almost a year, my son loves spending time with Bec and her family, she offers a warm, caring, safe and friendly environment, it’s like a home from home. She does lots of fun activities indoors and outdoors with the children and often takes them out to messy play, parks etc I couldn’t recommend her enough.

As a foster carer I am extremely careful who i leave my children with and only choose the best. I have been leaving my foster children with Bec over the last 4 years whilst I attend meetings and appointments, she has an excellent understanding of the additional needs these very vulnerable children have. She has a calm and gentle manner towards the children whist at the same time applies age appropriate boundaries consistently which makes them feel safe and secure. Her family are a real asset to her business and welcome each child who visits their home as an additional loved family member. Bec offers a proper home from home experience and I really can't recommend her highly enough.

I am a mum of 8 children and my youngest child has been going here for the last 6 months and I cannot fault a single thing! I have tried many nurseries and childminders over the years but have never felt as happy leaving my child anywhere else.
Becs is not only excellent looking after my child’s developmental needs but is as loving to my own child as I am. My little one loves being there and has thrived since going. The food given is varied and healthy, activities are challenging and fun, the outddor area is beautiful, as is her house (Becs how do you keep it so nice?) Becs own family are all so welcoming and lovely and treat my little one as part of the family too, I couldn’t imagine sending her anywhere else. My four year old twins are jealous that they can’t go and I only wish I had found her 20 years ago when I had my first!

My child has been looked after by Bec for the past 7 months and I am so pleased with how she has settled in. My daughter has a life threatening medical condition and I was very wary of who I asked to look after her. I know now that I made the right decision and I would highly recommend Bec, she always has the child's best interest at heart and continues with any plan that I have put in place with my child at home e.g eating habits, potty training and reward charts etc.

Bec is understanding and is approachable, she cares for the children like her own and is calm and patient with them. I love that she is is able take the children out to groups in the local area as this also gives my child the interaction needed for her development. Bec has a lovely house and a large garden so when the weather is kind she is able to do lots of activities with them outdoors, including wet play, sand, foam, pasta, den building and looking at nature as well as lots of outdoor toys too.

Bec uses a parent portal called Tapestry so any photos and updates from my child gets uploaded so that I can see the progress. This is an amazing tool as I get to see how happy and comfortable she feels in someone else's house.

I am so impressed with how my child has progressed since being looked after by Bec, her speech is amazing and I can't thank Bec enough, she follows the EYFS framework by considering the individual needs of the children in her care, understanding their starting points, their strengths and their interests, and incorporating these into aspects of their learning and taking into account all their strengths and areas for development.

My child eats really well whilst at the childminders, Bec offers a well balance diet to all the children and caters for allergies too. She lives with her husband and 3 children, her husband Rick is also lovely and helps Becs on the school runs etc, he is also DBS checked and paediatric first aid trained.

My child enjoys her time there and with Bec's support is learning to play alongside others in a safe and nurturing environment. I feel totally relaxed when I leave my child with Bec and I would highly recommend her services.
