We knew from the moment we went to visit that our little girl would be in safe hands. Tickly tums is a fantastic childminder. They have open communication. Give a great daily summary of my child's day. Were fantastic in accommodating our personal circumstances (shift patterns etc). My little girl was 10 months when first started going and they made a first time mum feel as ease. I have seen my girl grow and flourish with them. Highly recommend.
My son has been going to Tickly Tums for 3 & a half years (since he was 6 months old) and I cannot recommend them highly enough.
On the 'business' side; Communication is open, honest and thorough. Freshly cooked food, and happy to cater to any needs. Stimulating activities, both indoor and outdoor play. Support with age milestones (weaning, potty training etc).
On the 'personal' side; My son LOVES it there - he even asks if he can go at the weekends! He starts telling us what he has been doing that day as soon as we pick him up.
Having no family locally, my husband & I can honestly say that we couldn't have done the past 3.5 years without Tickly Tums. They have been amazing, and are genuinely like a second family to us & our son.
Due my personal circumstances where I lost my wife back in 2016 I needed to find somewhere I could send my son for childcare when I went back to work and as soon as I had contact and a viewing and could see how comfortable my son was there I knew there was no better place for him and because I do shift work they are so accommodating I could not ask for more and they are so friendly and helpful with he’s Progression
I have been looking for a childminder over the last few months for my baby boy. Tickly Tums is by far the nicest setting I’ve visited, lovely toys and extremely clean. So warm and welcoming. I can’t wait for him to start next year. Thank you for making us feel so comfortable, answering all questions and putting our minds at ease.
Our daughter started with Keith and Linda over a year ago (since September 2017). I was feeling really anxious about going back to work and leaving my daughter but Keith and Linda’s home from home environment really put me at ease and our daughter quickly settled in.
They are super flexible with times and nothing is too much trouble. I can’t recommend them enough whatever your childcare needs.
I can honestly say I have nothing to worry about when I go to work as I know she is taken care of lovingly by them and their team.
The communication is excellent too, every day they provide us with a clear and detailed summary of all the activities our daughter did.
My daughter is very comfortable there and she is always telling me how much fun she had.
They have a beautiful and secure outdoor space and loads of toys inside.
Thank you for all you’ve done so far! We really appreciate it.
