Probably the worlds best childminder...

I was so concerned with leaving my daughter (then 1 yr) with a stranger. I searched through 48 profiles, had 4 interviews and still was not happy. I then saw Victoria's profile and subsequently met her. Immediately I was at ease with her, she understood completely my parenting methods (I practice attachment parenting) and that I was an anxious first time mama! My daughter was very relaxed on meeting Tori and the space she provides for the children struck me as a lovely little grotto of calm and fun. There were no pressures at all put on my daughter or myself during the settle in period. Tori was patient and wanted to do everything at my daughters pace. This was 6 months ago and my daughter simply LOVES it at Buttercups. Tori is so careful and considerate of each child's individuality, designing schedules and activities that appeal to each child's interests. They have excursions to local play groups, libraries and parks, do lots of arts, crafts and baking as well as guided and free play and reading. Tori welcomes any suggestions for activities or excursions and is incredibly sensitive to my child's needs. Tori is meticulous in keeping a daily diary of naps, nappies, food intake etc, and also updates the Tapestry profile at least once a week with lovely photos and updates of what my daughter has been up to as well as information on how her developments are progressing. Tori welcomes parental updates about home life on Tapestry too, which I feel is a great way to ensure a strong cohesiveness exists between home and the childminders. I really cannot praise Tori enough! She is professional whilst being personable, always approachable and ready with advice or guidance, welcomes even the strangest of parenting techniques and my daughter simply adores going to play with her Toorweee!! I really do feel completely confident every time I leave her, knowing she is in a safe, clean, challenging environment with someone who cares greatly for her.
