My hobbies are gardening, baking, camping, walking, along with bike rides and socialising with friends and family. our hobbies transfer within our setting, as the children develop the fun of gardening, baking fresh bread and cakes. we attend a weekly play group and weekly rhyme time. standalone farm is a top favourite with the children and the splash park. the list goes on. we offer lots of Arts and crafts. I hold regular chats with parents so we can discuss your child's development and work on ares which need improvements. We have daily story's which follow with the nursery rhyme bag appearing and all the children choose a character and we sing. We learn colour's and numbers. Teach the children in sharing and how to be polite. I cook all my own food with a wide range off different taste and textures. Most importantly the children feel loved and welcomed and its

Caroline and Mark have been looking after our son for about a year. My wife and I are both work full time, and Caroline came highly recommended. Caroline and Mark are naturally caring and warm people who instantly bonded with our son. We are delighted with the care our son has received and the significant progress he has made while in Caroline’s setting. Caroline provides a welcoming, clean and safe environment that helps children learn and but still feel like they are at home. Caroline keeps clear boundaries in here setting and is very trustworthy. She has excellent communication skills and always provides us with feedback about our Son’s development. Caroline also delivers a broad range of activities including plenty of outdoor exercises, visiting farms and different parks, along with birthday parties and days out.

Our son has been going to Caroline and Marks home since starting school in September. It was a very difficult decision deciding on suitable childcare for our little boy and ensuring that he would be in a happy, safe environment, as both myself and my husband work long hours.
Our first meeting with Caroline and Mark made us feel welcomed, completely at ease and confident that due to their vast experience working with children, that they have the experience and knowledge that we were looking for in a childminder.
Our son looks forward to going to Caroline and Marks before and after school. They encourage learning and fun while supporting the children’s independence and kindness towards each other. He loves the home-cooked dinners in the evening, which he insists are the best ever! He enjoys interacting with the other children and playing with all the age appropriate toys.
Caroline and Mark do lots of after school activities with the children such as arts/crafts, baking, dress-up etc. Their home is welcoming, safe and an exceptionally clean environment. Myself and my husband would highly recommend their childcare setting to everyone.

My daughter has been with Caroline and Mark for over a year. And its like going from home to home, they both are the most understanding and caring minders around, I've been too quite a few and have never felt so settled with them and my daughter looks at them like another family.
They treat the kids like there own. they do homemade baking, take the kids out on adventures, gives them lots of love when they need it, and they take care of them like there own... what more could you ask for!
They are no ordinary minders, they understand when things go wrong, I.e being a bit late because you're stuck in traffic, any personnel issues they understand and help out as much as possible. Truly warming people, and i wouldn't go anywhere else. if you're looking for a minder who will be warming, take care of your kids like there own, understanding, and do anything for you and your children then Caroline and Mark are your answer!

I felt very "guilty" to return back to work when my son was 10 months old.He was very sick the first year of his life and still has his problems.I was worried someone else couldn't cope with it all apart from me.
We viewed Caroline settings and were really happy with how she was as a person, very competent, trust worthy and relaxed. Just really welcoming towards us.So was Mark! Caroline never fails to make anyone feel comfortable in her house. My son is looked after so so well, I fully trust Caroline as a childminder and as a person! She has really proven herself to me.My other son is 5 and goes to Caroline during the school holidays. He is always keen on going to "Carolines house" ! Best decision I could have made! Thank you Caroline and Mark :-*

Caroline is a warm, welcoming childminder who instantly bonded with both of our children. It was refreshing that after making an initial enquiry, Caroline opened her home to us straight away to put our minds at ease. Her home in clean and safe for both very young children and those a little older to explore. The toys are age appropriate and vary to cater for all ages. Watching my babys progression from just walking when she arrived to now has been startling. Caroline initiated potty training for my daughter by monitoring her development closely and finding the perfect time. Not only did she conquer this well before my daughters second birthday but whenever I had doubts or a little wobble she reassured and supported me. My daughter regularly participates in learning activities, improving her speech and understanding day by day. There is always arts and crafts and photographic evidence of the fun they have. Caroline makes healthy and nutritious food and encourages the children to try a variety of different foods to explore tastes and textures. Fresh fruit and vegetables are always on the menu as well as bread and cake making for balance and fun. Caroline is flexible and understanding which greatly reduces the stress and anxiety of leaving your children. Caroline caters for young children and also looks after my 9 year old in school holidays, providing fun and creative activities suitable for all ages. My children adore Caroline and the home away from home she provides. I would highly recommend her childminding services to anyone.
