Mrs Patience has cared for my 2 sons for the past 2 years. she is very excellent at her job and creates various activities for all the children regardless of their age. I cant fault her in any way with regards to her abilities as a child minder. She provides fresh home cooked meals after school everyday and made sure each child was comfortable. She is very flexible and would always try to accommodate all the odd shifts that i worked. Thank you for being a wonderful childminder to my kids.

as a christian myself, I felt my child would be safe under her supervision. I found out I needed not worry because not only was she competent in what she did, my child was always excited to go there and I notice significant progress with my child's interest in books.
