My Experience

I was a childminder when my own children were young and that was a most rewarding enjoyable time in my life so after being made redundant I took the opportunity to return to what I enjoy the most and that is childcare. I have worked in a nursery gaining new skills and have been to college to gain my qualifications to enable me to offer the best childcare available.I have been following the EYFS for the past 9 years and have completed the 5 childminding workshops.

We were referred to Linda and Trevor even before our little one had been born. He started with them not long after his first birthday and in the last 12 months they have proved just how amazing we were told they were. We feel like we now have extended family and our little one has an extra set of grandparents. From day one they have been better than we ever could imagine, they have loved and nurtured our little boy, encouraged his development, grown his confidence all while surrounding him with and fun and laughter.
We're so glad that when we have another child they will get to experience Linda and Trevor's care.
They really are as good as they sound, your child gets the love and care they would receive from family all whilst supporting their development.
From the daily diary, the home cooked food, the video messages and pictures, the love and nurturing there really is nothing more we could ask for.

Linda and Trevor became our eldest son's childminders when he was just 9 months old they helped him to settle in quickly and he soon became part of their child-minding family so much so that he see's them like a set of grandparents! As soon as we found out we were expecting our second we contacted them straight away to book our 2nd child in so that he too could go to the same loving and nurturing environment as his older brother he too settled in quickly and is thriving at Linda & Trevor's.

Not only are they great at looking after the boys the food they cook is amazing too - my boys refuse to eat anyone's Yorkshire pudding's other than Trevor's as his are the best!

Whilst the boys have been in their care they have had many enjoyable days in the garden, trips out or simply making dens inside! The resources that Linda & Trevor have are amazing and the mothers/fathers day gifts that the children make are a real treat :-)

The highlight of my night is reading the boys diaries and finding out what adventures they have been up to as Linda & Trevor provide you with not only what the children have eaten, slept, nappy log but a daily story as to what they have done the way it is written is just magical and no wonder the boys love going there!

When the time comes for our boys to leave Linda and Trevor's care it will be a very sad day but they will forever hold a place in our hearts and I'm sure the boys will remember them fondly.

My daughter has been going to Linda & Trevor's from the age of 9 months old and she loves it! She is now 6 and in Year 1 at the local Primary School but goes before and after school, as they drop her off and pick her up.
Linda & Trevor are an extra set of grandparents to her and she loves them dearly. They have helped her develop right from Day 1 and we loved the daily diary updates which filled us in on the days activities when she was there full time!
Could not recommend highly enough and will be gutted when the day comes when our daughter is old enough to go to school on her own!

Our little girl has had her last day at Linda and Trevor's today and it has been emotional for us all. They are part of our family and we love them dearly. They have helped to develop our little girl into a happy, confident and funny little girl. They have made every day fun with so many different activities throughout each day, from outdoor games, bouncing on the bouncy castle, to planting seeds, arts and crafts and playing role play!! She has loved every minute!! Our whole family have enjoyed being part of Linda and Trevor's lives and we will continue seeing them even though our little girl has now left. Thank you Linda and Trevor!! X

My youngest has now been going to Linda and Trevors for just over 2 years, and needless to say he absolutely loves it. He has come on loads, all the outstanding features that existed 4 odd years ago, remain to this day. These guys are really a diamond in the hay stack. You will not be disappointed if you choose then to look after your little one. I am going to be gutted when my eldest leaves for school in Septempber. I wish they could carry on here!
