**2018 graded GOOD by Ofsted**Hello my name is Abbigail, i am a ofsted registered childmimder/nanny. I have over ten years experience with children :-) I have two children aged 10 and 5 they are my life..

I provide fun/stimulating activities to improve your childs learning and development in line with the early years foundation stage. My aim is to learn through play.

I am a advocate of outdoor activities and believe that children need at least 30 minutes exercise each day, in my care we achieve this on a daily basis. I attend play groups, parks, beaches, hillside walks on a regular basis. I believe in healthy eating and provide nutricious snacks throughout the day.

Abbigail is absolutely amazing, my daughter started with her June 2018 and I haven’t look back since, she absolutely loves Abbigail, she has a very warm, kind and welcoming nature. She’s great at her job and definitely goes above and beyond.

I cannot rate or praise Abbigail enough no matter what I write in this review; she is THAT good. Every parent knows the struggle of having to leave their child on someone else's hands and Abbigail knew to soothe that anxiety in me. I tried taking my child to three others nurseries and after a few weeks I was running for the mountains (fellow parents, please look around when you settle your baby - you may find your baby been fed with the same spoon as other babies and even baby medicine stored in the visitors toilet).

I then figured that a childminder would give my baby more attention and care and I really valued the continuation of a homely feeling for my son. Abbigail provided and keeps to provide exactly that since day one. The happiness on my son's face when I drop him is remarkable and he clearly shows how annoyed he is every time I pick him up since he does not want to leave. Seeing this really alleviated any anxiety I had about leaving him with someone else and I trust that he is having a lovely time there. I can see how Abbigail managed to establish a strong bond with my son and my son demonstrates the same for Abbigail what else can you ask for. I love how Abbigail gives parents time to chat about their child's development and update us on what went on during the day (literally everything, from food, sleep, nappies, issues; she covers all and even follows up with a text for your records). Abbigail has also been sharing so many parenting tips with me which have made a significant difference to how I cope with parenting (well I am a new mum and everything new seems scary). I have one too many things to praise Abbigail on and to be honest no negatives at all. Abbigail is extremely professional, she has a wonderful children's area, she keeps the number of children low enough so that she is able to really be there for the children, in terms of cleanliness I am very satisfied and most importantly - NO nursery germs!!! I am currently in the process of looking for a new house to move at and one thing I'm sure of is that I am not moving anywhere too far from this childminder. I think this last statement will give you the all reassurance you need.

My daughter has been at the setting with Abbigail for around 9 months now, i cannot fault the care they have given my daughter. Abbigail is always smiling and welcoming and i know my daughter loves her and has a lot of fun in her care. Abbigail has always been very caring and understanding not only to my daughter but to me as a parent too, i often will ask advise or opinions and value what she says. I cannot thank you enough, we were very lucky to find such amazing childminders.

Abbigail helps and supports my childminder Marcelle to look after my young son often having him during her holiday and uni cover. She is friendly, caring and clearly loves her job. My son loves being in her care and I am reassured by her kind nature that he is loved right back.
He always walks in the door happy to go and I can contact her if I want to check on him, but I do feel confident I dont need to as I know he is in good hands.
I like the fact that he is taken out to experience parks, forest walks, lots of play and simulating activities. The setting is warm and friendly, perfect for the number of children. All the children are happy, kind to each other and love playing together, I feel this says it all.

'I work alongside another child minder, we have a lovely setting which is very warm and welcoming'. This is really true.
Abigail is also very encouraging and understanding. She is hard working and can manage stress well.
Am proud to know that my daughters are well taken care of like everyother mum would expect.
I highly recommend her and trust you won't be disappointed!
