I am so glad Helen had space for our son and feel lucky that he is part of such a caring, supportive and nurturing family. So many locals had recommend Helen - 'amazing' was the common description - and she really is. My son has developed from a quiet and shy boy into a very happy and confident toddler. Helen's care, knowledge and absolutely wonderful range of activities has made me feel so confident that my son is getting the best start. From yummy food to visits to butterfly farms and beach excursions, Helen provides such fun, educational and engaging days that my son now actually closes the door on me at drop off as he's so keen to start the day with Helen and his friends. It's been lovely watching my son develop these friendships and Helen really nurtures the relationships between the children so that they are a great little team.

We approached Helen, after our eldest son had trouble settling into Nursery. Helen took him in and he almost immediatly seemed better settled. Over time, we saw him develop his confidence and independence. I believe this was not only helped by Helen's caring, and nurturing approach, but because she was always keen to understand our child's needs. Our son thrived under the more personal setting that Helen provides. After seeing our eldest grow into a happy, and confident little boy, it was an easy decision to leave our youngest with her.

Helen has looked after our DS since he was 6 months old. He loves spending time with her and her activities are extremely varied. We love that she takes the children on excursions to so many different places and has inspired us to visit them too. We have seen our son develop so quickly with his language, social skills and he is extremely settled there. Helen is friendly, trustworthy and her setting is so lovely, especially the garden - where the children do so many fun activities. She is accommodating, knowledgeable and has ensures his development continues to meet the EYFS standards we expect of a nursery setting. We were recommended Helen by a friend and we would also do the same for anyone seeking childcare.

I have been so impressed since my little boy has been going to Helens for his childcare, I feel he has learnt so much and i have seen such an improvement in his speech and behavior. He really enjoys his time with Helen and enjoys all the activities that happen throughout the day. would recommend to anyone.
